4 Super Easy No-Heat Hair Tutorials (That Anyone Can Do!)

Many years ago I used to curl my hair with curling tongs, only for them to drop a couple of hours later. It took longer for me to curl them than for them to actually stay, so I have long since given up on doing them. I much prefer doing ...

The Life of a Gaijin Gyaruo

Okay, I admit it - I will put my hands up and say that I don't talk a lot about gyaruo on this blog, and that's because I don't really know much about them. I've only met a handful of gyaruo/gyaruo (the male equivalent of gyaru) and, sadly, we only have ...
