Though salons and barbershops remain closed across much of the country during the coronavirus pandemic, there’s no need to weather bad hair days when self-isolating. While some people have reportedly taken measures — and scissors — into their own hands, one haircare professional claims there’s no need to take such drastic action to keep locks looking maintained if trips to the salon are impossible.

You’ll need just a few affordable essentials to keep hair healthy at home during the ongoing outbreak, L’Oréal Paris Celebrity hair colorist and stylist Jonathan Colombini says. Based out of Cie Salon in Malibu, Calif., the celeb stylist’s clientele includes Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Olivia Culpo, Cindy Crawford, Kristin Chenoweth, Ariel Winter and Camila Alves.

As the federal government has extended its social-distancing guidelines through April 30, here’s how to truly let your hair down in the weeks ahead.

FOX NEWS: During the ongoing outbreak of the novel coronavirus, many state governments have ordered the temporary closure of beauty salons. How can people keep hair healthy at home?

JONATHAN COLOMBINI: At-home self-care has always been at the forefront in beauty, and now more than ever during these times. My big go-to, and of course the most simple-yet-effective [method], is shampoo and conditioner.

If you have long hair, use the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths collection, which has a shiny shampoo, detangling conditioner, and leave-in treatment to seal split ends and reduce further breakage. For short hair, use something moisturizing like L’Oréal Paris EverPure to wash.

FOX: Should people try to trim their own hair during the outbreak?

Columbini: Please don’t! This should definitely be left up to your stylist, the professional. In hopes we recover in a timely manner from this outbreak, you won’t have to wait much longer for your next well-anticipated haircut appointment.

If you do feel like your hair is growing and you have more split ends than usual, try a leave-in conditioner. This will help strengthen the hair and seal up those split ends until the salons re-open.

FOX: How can parents keep their children’s hair neat and clean during the outbreak?

Columbini: If you’re finding that your child’s hair is more knotty than usual, try washing and using a detangling conditioner to make it easier to brush and style. Then, use gel, mousse or hairspray to keep the hair looking neat. It could also a fun way to play salon.

FOX: When salons ultimately reopen in the U.S., how can customers protect themselves during appointments?

Columbini: We should always protect ourselves whenever interacting in large groups. Wash your hands and try not to touch your face, utilize hand sanitizer, and just be aware of cleanliness when in larger groups.

FOX: How can people continue supporting their favorite salons and stylists during the outbreak, if they can’t physically make it to the salon?

Columbini: Purchasing products online or directly from your stylist is a great way to support them during this time. Some color kits are available to purchase from your stylist, or they can help you determine which at-home hair products you should use based on your needs.

FOX: Is there anything else you’d like to share with our audience?

Columbini: Stay calm and understand you’re not alone in this. Your stylists and colorists are always available to answer any questions you may have during this time. Soon enough, we’ll be able to go back to our normal routine and we’ll all hopefully appreciate them even more.

Exclusive – Los Angeles-based retailer Buck Mason is known for its quality manufacturing and designing classic clothes for men. Now, however, the company is putting its design capabilities to help its community and mass-producing washable non-medical masks.

In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Buck Mason co-founder Sasha Koehn explained that making face masks was an easy move for his company.

“At the end of day, we sew cotton, so this was a pretty simple pivot for us to be able to manufacture face masks,” said Koehn. “Especially because we’re seeing that the need is so big, we had to act and we knew we could help.”

Koehn’s decision to make face masks comes as the Trump administration formalizes new guidance to recommend that many Americans wear face coverings in an effort to slow the spread of the new coronavirus.

Koehn told Fox News that he felt it was important for his company to make masks for the masses, because the first priority for the N95 masks should be for health care workers on the front lines.

“What’s crazy though, since we started making these masks, is that we’re getting responses from the medical community,” said Koehn. “They’re still requesting these masks we’re making because there’s still such a shortage and they’re literally willing to wear anything and everything at this point.”

States and cities across the United States are, in fact, receiving shipments from the National Strategic Stockpile to try to relieve shortages in medical equipment because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Koehn noted that Buck Mason will start manufacturing robes and gowns, and that he is not going to stop helping his community amid this pandemic.

“Our goal was to donate as many masks as possible when we started this project,” said Koehn. “Our goal was to donate 100,000 face masks to our community, but now, it is looking like we’re going to exceed that goal very quickly. And all I can say is we’re not going to stop there. We’re going to keep going.”

Most men don’t choose this look.

A young boy from London decided to go for a daring new hairstyle based off something he saw on TV. Unfortunately, what the kid saw was an older, balding man.

“I’d left my clippers on charge upstairs and the boys obviously found them,” Kevin Moore told South West News Service. “They both came down and they were laughing so much. I looked over and saw this massive bald patch on top of George’s head.” (SWNS)

Kevin Moore said he was at home with his two children, ages 5 and 7, when he heard them both giggling hysterically, South West News Service (SWNS) reported. Deciding to investigate, Moore said he soon learned his sons had found a pair of his clippers and decided to shave a bald spot into the 5-year-old’s head.

“I’d left my clippers on charge upstairs and the boys obviously found them,” Kevin told SWNS. “They both came down and they were laughing so much. I looked over and saw this massive bald patch on top of George’s head.”

The family was dealing with the coronavirus lockdown at the time, Yahoo News reported.

Kevin said he was left with his sons after his wife went to work, and that George, the 5-year-old, was begging him to make him to look like “an old man.”

“I didn’t know what he meant, but ‘You’ve Been Framed’ was on the TV at the time and he pointed at an elderly gentleman on there with thinned hair on top and said he wanted that,” Kevin explained.

‘Hottest mom in the world’ speaks out on viral fame: ‘It took a while for me to adjust’

The 43-year-old San Franciscan who went viral for her youthful appearance sat down with Fox News to talk about growing up as a tomboy, her unexpected fame, and why it helps that she’s an elementary school teacher.

Joleen Diaz, a schoolteacher and Internet-appointed “Hottest Mom in the World,” describes the attention as “a little overwhelming.”

“It actually started [when] my daughter posted this social media video that all the kids were doing about hot moms,” she said. “I think that’s how the name got started.”

Diaz is quick to point out that “there are a lot of hot moms out there.” But her 101,000 Instagram followers seem to only have eyes for her, as her photos routinely pull in thousands of likes and comments — and most of them, she says, are very nice.

“I think for me the best part that I’ve experienced the past couple of weeks is meeting so many new people from around the world,” she said. “So many supportive people.”

She said her daughter was “just as shocked” as she was about the photos going viral, but that they’re both pleased after adjusting to “having so many eyes” on them.

“It happened super quick. Kind of, like, within two days. She’s happy. She thinks it’s really cool,” Diaz said. “It took a while for me to adjust to all of it. I’m not really used to [the attention],” she added.

“I don’t wake up looking put together and I don’t go to bed looking that great either.”

— Joleen Diaz

However, when it comes to getting attention for her youthful appearance, she’s very happy that one particular group hasn’t noticed.

“I teach 3rd and 4th grade, so they haven’t said anything to me about seeing it, which, I’m thankful,” she said, laughing.

Diaz said she hasn’t always been a put-together “hot mom,” though. Growing up in Guam, Diaz described herself as a “tomboy.”

“I was the scrawny kid with the scraggly hair,” Diaz said. “I don’t wake up looking put together and I don’t go to bed looking that great either.”

But for her, and other women, Diaz explained that beauty always comes from within, and recommends everyone “find something to love” about themselves.

“I would tell a woman to just find confidence and beauty in herself. Find something about herself that she loves and focus on that because there’s something inside all of us that we can find and love and build our self-confidence on.”

‘HOT GRANDMA’ STUNS INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS AFTER REVEALING SHE’S 40: ‘THEY ARE SO SHOCKED’

As far as her next steps go, Diaz is taking a wait-and-see approach.

“I’ll see how people feel about me when it settles. But I really don’t mind inspiring and helping people to live a healthy life and just make healthy choices,” she said.

“Especially since it’s really cool that so many people from around the world have reached out. That part, I think is insane. I love that part of it.”

Missguided ad banned by UK advertising authority for ‘presenting women as sexual objects’

The Advertising Standards Authority of the U.K. (ASA) is upholding a complaint against clothing retailer Missguided, regarding an ad ultimately deemed to be “presenting women as sexual objects.”

The complaint, originally filed in November 2019, stemmed from a Missguided advertisement posted at a U.K. train station, which pictured a model “leaning against a side table wearing an unbuttoned jacket with nothing underneath, sheer tights and high heels,” according to the ASA.

KIM KARDASHIAN CRITICIZED FOR WEARING BRAIDS — AGAIN

The person(s) who filed the complaint had claimed the ad “overly sexualized” the woman in the poster, and ultimately “objectified women.”

Complainants also identified a second Missguided poster, featuring the same model in what’s described as a “pink mini dress,” although the ASA did not uphold complaints against that particular poster.

Missguided, which is based in the U.K., argued instead that both ads encouraged “female empowerment,” adding that the company presented them to “external media agencies” as part of its “stringent approval process.”

Complaints were also lodged against a second ad, featuring the same model in a pink mini dress, but the ASA deemed it “likely to be in keeping with how the dress would ordinarily be worn.” (SWNS)

Global Outdoor, the media company that owns the outdoor advertising space where the poster would be displayed, had also approved the ads, according to Missguided.

Ultimately, the ASA found that the first ad – featuring the model in the unbuttoned blazer – was in breach of standards put forth by the ASA’s Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP).

“The model in [the ad] was wearing a blazer with nothing underneath, which exposed the side of her breast, and which was coupled with sheer tights, sheer gloves and underwear,” the ASA wrote in its ruling. “We considered she would be seen as being in a state of undress and that the focus was on her chest area and lower abdomen rather than the clothing being advertised.”

The ASA further noted “that her head was tilted back, with her mouth slightly open, and her leg was bent and raised,” considering the pose to be too sexually suggestive.

“We considered that the sexually suggestive styling and pose would be seen as presenting women as sexual objects. Because the ad objectified women, we concluded that ad was likely to cause serious offense,” the ASA wrote.

However, the second ad, featuring the same model in a pink dress, was not considered to be offensive, as it “was likely to be in keeping with how the dress would ordinarily be worn,” according to the ASA.

In related headlines, the ASA recently came down on U.K.-based clothing retailer PrettyLittleThing in early February, ruling that one of its YouTube ads – in which a model was seen wearing “chaps-style knickers which revealed her buttocks” – was “overly sexualized.”

Maison Margiela sneakers with hot candle wax design draw reactions: ‘What in the hot glue gun?’

A unique pair of sneakers being sold by the high-end French fashion house Maison Margiela is getting quite the attention online.

The chunky trainers are purposely designed to look like what appears to be hot candle wax dripping all over them. What’s more is, they retail for more than $1,100.

Currently for sale on e-commerce sites such as Matches Fashion and Coggles, the fusion leather and mesh trainers are advertised as fashion-forward must-haves.

“Maison Margiela’s black Fusion trainers showcase the label’s penchant for creating avant-garde and instantly recognizable footwear silhouettes through their unmistakeable [sic] deconstructed aesthetic,” according to a product description on Matches Fashion.

“They’re crafted in Italy from leather and mesh and feature carbon-fibre-effect details, glue drips and purposeful loose threads to further accentuate the design,” the description says.

Coggles highlighted that the designer is “showcasing the parts of a shoe that are usually hidden beneath a refined outer, the ‘fusion’ trainers are covetable precisely because of their imperfection and rawness.”

An Instagram post of the eccentric footwear recently went viral and drew some funny reactions.

“What in the hot glue gun,” commented one Instagram user, while another wrote: “Let me just pour some candle wax on some sketchers.”

“Making these knockoffs is going to be super easy,” someone joked. Another person wondered, “Is that snot?”

One Instagram user pointed out that despite the seeming ridiculousness of the footwear’s design, a luxury designer such as Maison Margiela can get away with it because “they know people wear anything.”

One entrepreneurial-minded Instagram user, however, decided to take advantage of the viral sneakers, saying: “I can recreate that for $99.99, ask me how for a discount!”

Face masks are must-have accessory of London fashion week amid coronavirus panic

Virus protection — but make it fashion.

The hottest accessory at London fashion week isn’t a Barbie-sized purse, but fashionable face masks amid widespread panic over coronavirus.

Though fabric face masks can’t exactly help prevent the spread of the virus, it hasn’t stopped stylish denizens from wearing them to shows anyway.

But these aren’t your ordinary face masks of the surgical hospital variety. The fashion flock is putting their own spin on the accessory with adornments to show off a bit of personality. One attendee outside the British Fashion Council (BFC) Show Space show wore one decorated with arrows, while a pair of women donned pastel-hued versions.

The BFC expects attendance at London fashion week to go down this year due to coronavirus, reports Reuters. Chinese designer Yuhan Wang opened LFW, but tells Reuters she had to cut down on looks because of delays caused by the virus. Six Chinese brands have canceled shows at Paris fashion week, Women’s Wear Daily reports, and upcoming fashion weeks in Beijing and Shanghai that were slated for March have been postponed.

London isn’t the first city where face masks have become the trending accessory. Several New York Fashion Week attendees covered their mouths last week, including stylist Marina Ingvarsson who wore a minimal black face mask outside the Michael Kors show. The trend was just as prevalent during NYFW in 2018 over flu concerns.

The streets aren’t the only place face masks have been popping up. Designers Phillipe and David Blond featured plenty of them during their Monday runway show for the Blonds, including bedazzled, bejeweled and feathered renditions. Blancore’s Yalan Li also included one made out of white mesh during her show.

In New York, face masks have become hard to come by, too. Most shops have reported selling out of plain surgical masks as of January following the rise of coronavirus cases stateside. Prices have also skyrocketed at online stores such as Amazon as shoppers even scoop up masks for their pets.

In China, where coronavirus originated, over 5,000 new cases were confirmed in a single day, according to officials. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the total cases of the deadly illness in the US is now at 15 as of Thursday.

RompHim menswear company goes out of business after going viral

It was fun while it lasted.

RompHim, the fashion company that went viral for its male-marketed one-piece garments, has announced that it has closed shop.

“The time has come to close the door on RompHim,” the company co-founders said in a statement.

MALE ONESIES DEBUT ON E-COMMERCE SITE, PROMPT MOCKERY: ‘WHO ASKED FOR THIS?’

RompHim made waves in 2017 when the then-Northwestern business students launched a Kickstarter for their colorful and creatively-printed male rompers. The crowdsourcing campaign raised $350,000 for the fashion line, which included RompSuits for cold weather.

On their Instagram Story, RompHim thanked their customers – which they called the “Romp Squad”— “for being an integral part of [the] journey to push fashion boundaries,” according to the New York Post.

While some critics mocked the unconventional style for being what they considered a less-than-manly fashion choice, it was a hit with many men including the Los Angeles Rams and the cast of Bravo’s “Summer House.”

RompHim’s popularity continued to grow thanks to its bro-like marketing ads like models rocking their rompers at baseball games, chugging beer and playing pool. The menswear line was also popular with the LGBTQ community.

But for diehard fans who can’t stand to see their favorite menswear line go, they can at least be comforted in knowing that male rompers are also available for sale by other fashion brands like ASOS and RomperJack.

Male one-piece garments are apparently on the rise, evidenced by adult male onesies that were being sold on the e-commerce site Wish.com.

The unique fashion item, traditionally worn by toddlers, was being sold last month by multiple vendors on the site, which features male models rocking crotch-hugging onesies.

One of the onesies sold by the seller BoutiqueMarket was described as a “Pressed Crotch Baseball Themed Bodysuit Romper Pajamas.”

The item even came with a five-star review. “Fits nicely, quality surpasses what I expected,” one happy buyer wrote in the product’s customer reviews section.
