While the good parts of Summer far outweigh the bad, warm weather can leave hair in a condition something less to be desired. "Usually at the end of [Summer], everyone is clogging the phones with, 'My hair turned green from the pool,' or 'My hair is super dry from the saltwater at the beach,'" says Alberto VO5 hair expert Chris Lospalluto. You don't have to start the cooler months off with frizzy, moss-toned hair, however. To see Lospalluto's three tips for giving lackluster strands a piece of your mind, just keep reading.
It may be the last few weeks of warm weather, but there's nothing wrong with a little post-Summer shopping.

The line features a wide range of silhouettes and fun prints, starting with the pink clover prints and colourful graphic patterns. There are beach totes for all your warm-weather essentials, plus a few stylish rash guards for the hardcore surfer, too. Click on to see and shop the best pieces from the lookbook right now.
Iconic fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg has collaborated with popular surf and ski brand Roxy, to create a limited-edition swimwear range. Going by the name DVF Loves Roxy, the one-time collaboration sees Diane merge her signature patterns and punchy brights with Roxy's most popular swimsuit silhouettes. We're especially loving the front-tie bandeau bikini tops and the super cute rashie — there's a hint of '70s sex appeal coming through, and we're diggin' it. You can check out (and buy!) the range at Roxy's website now, with prices ranging from $49.99-$89.95 — what a steal!
Victoria's Secret just released the second issue of its 2013 swim catalogue, and to showcase this latest round of swimwear, the Angels took to the beaches of Tulum, Mexico. Namely, Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss, Barbara Palvin, Erin Heatherton and Behati Prinsloo provided the signature VS sex appeal in a sunny lineup of little bikinis and playful one-pieces. From the curve-enhancing push-up iterations, to the retro ruffle-trimmed suits, to the sportier striped bandeaus and bottoms, this is the kind of warm-weather styling that already has us looking forward to next Summer. So if you've still got surf, sun, and sand on your mind — and in your sights — click on for a preview of the swim catalogue now, then shop the collection at Victoria's Secret.

Apart from the perfect black bikini, there's one beach-kit essential that will set you apart from the back-packing crowds — a stylish beach towel. We know it can be tempting to just keep 'borrowing' those kiddies sized ones from your mum, or nicking your flatty's when she's out — but trust us when we say that shelling out for one quality, designer-name sand-rug is worth it in the long run. Soft, thick, luxurious 100% cotton is the only way to go, but you can choose your own adventure with graphic prints, classic seas-side stripes or tongue-in-cheek slogans. With this top ten edit, your (beach) bum will be the most stylishly parked on the sand. Guaranteed.
We don't want to alarm you, but there are a mere four weeks of Summer left. Yup. Before you know it we'll be talking about Winter trends, how to layer, and getting knee deep in coat/boot/knitwear shopping galleries. In an effort to squeeze the absolute most out of our Summer wardrobes, we're going to hold-tight to those items that you can really only wear when it's stinking hot outside. Keep-a-clicking to see what end-of-season buys the Sugar editors are making while they still can.
Jennifer Lopez showed off her bikini body yesterday while she relaxed on a yacht with her family in Miami. Jennifer wore a lilac two-piece as she chatted with friends and family members on the boat and played with her children, Max and Emme. Jennifer is staying in Miami after a busy week. Jennifer covered the most recent People magazine and inside talked about her divorce from Marc Anthony and her decision to quit American Idol. J Lo also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about how happy she was for ex-boyfriend Ben Affleck when he won best director at the Golden Globes. Jennifer told Ellen, "They were really hard on us back in the day, so it was really nice to see him have that moment. I was really happy for him." Jennifer also told Ellen that it isn't awkward when she sees exes like Ben and Diddy at events like the Globes because they see each other "a lot" since they all work in the same business.
