Oprah’s Natural Hair, Yin-Yang Nail Art, and Tan Mom Gives Up Tanning: Reading List

Welcome to August! It’s been an exciting week here at Birchbox HQ—we hosted an event with Caudalie, revealed the theme for our August box, and took a break to learn a little something from Birchbox Man about summer cocktails. This weekend, we’ll be catching up on the covers for all of our favorite September issues and relaxing. 


  • For the first time ever, Oprah appears on the cover of September’s O Magazine with her natural hair—un-straightened or blow dryed. The mogul looks even more gorgeous than usual! [Jezebel]
  • If you’ve ever seen a drag show, or RuPaul’s Drag Race, you know the hair and makeup are just as important as the clothes. In a new photo series, photographer Leland Bobbé captures men with half their face made up in drag. The transformations are remarkable. [Refinery29]
  • The rising queen of nail art, Katy Perry, has ying-yang nail art on the cover of Elle's September issue. Learn how to recreate the look yourself with black and white polish. [Beauty High
  • Tan mom stopped tanning for a month (kind of) and looks waaaay more normal. But can she continue to stay away from the booth? [InTouch
  • Growing up, there was one show that made learning about science cool: Bill Nye, the Science Guy! A new video with Bill teaches us how to tie a bow tie, super useful for helping the men-folk in our lives get prepped for fancy summer weddings. (Looks like it’s our turn to impart a little knowledge to Birchbox Man.) [Coco Perez]

Reading List: Olympic Team Beauty Secrets, A Kardashian Beauty Line, Portia de Rossi’s New Cut and More

Welcome back to another edition of Reading List! This week, there’s a big cut for Portia de Rossi, a trip down memory lane with the “Tan Mom,” a supermodel who almost didn’t make the cut, plus chlorine-proof hair and makeup. Catch up on these stories and more this weekend! 
  • Portia de Rossi chopped off all her hair into a bob this week. It’s cute, but we’re a little sad. We’ve always been jealous of her length. [People Style Watch]
  • Old photos of “tan mom” surfaced this week and she looks so pretty. The shocking thing is, these are supposedly from only 15 years ago. []
  • The Olympic Synchronized Swim team has some interesting tricks for keeping their hair healthy after hours spent in the pool; and what’s more, they also have some tips for getting their makeup to stay on in the water. [BellaSugar]
  • Gisele Bundchen: one of the most successful supermodels in the world, top of most men’s dream girl lists, and early modeling contract reject? If you’ve ever wondered how Gisele got to be at the top, now you know: a lot of perseverance. The supermodel was apparently rejected by 42 agents at the beginning of her career (when she was 17). [Just Jared]
  • In a move that surprises next to no one (the OPI polish collection was one step in the right direction), the Kardashian sisters launch a makeup line. [WWD]
