HAIR
• On the cover of Harper's Bazaar Korea, Hanne Gaby Odiele's has some very razor-sharp bangs. [Design Scene]

• A high-school student broke his school's dress code by attending classes with too many shaved strips in his hairstyle. A teacher colored in the excess bare patches with a Sharpie, and now he and his parents are offended. [FashionEtc]

• After promising the readers of her beauty blog she'd dye her hair peach at their request, Lauren Conrad wussed out. She only colored the ends. [Daily Beauty Reporter/Allure]

SKIN
• The FTC has banned the sale of smartphone apps that claim to be able to cure acne, you know, through your phone. A particularly outraged dermatologist said, "People are desperate to be beautiful. [They see it as] their gateway into society, and they were being taken advantage of and exploited." [Beauty High]

MAKEUP
• Here's some of the new fall/winter cosmetics from NARS — including a new shade of the company's G-Spot lipstick, and "an amazingly creamy, glitter-flecked mink brown" eyeshadow called Ponderosa. [Beauty Counter Blog]
