Don't get dimples like Cheryl Cole's

The Daily Mail reported this week that British plastic surgeons have seen a surge in so-called 'dimple jobs.' Dimples are getting more and more popular thanks to singer and estranged soccer player wife, Cheryl Cole. But surgeons warn that long-term effects are unknown. An expert told the paper: "Designer dimples are akin to permanent scarring and could turn to designer disasters as the face begins to droop with age." According to him, "there is a worrying rise in demand for designer dimples as women go to ever extreme lengths to look like their favourite celebrities[...]. The growing phenomenon has hit UK shores after a rapid rise in popularity in America."

Go 'bronde' this summer like Jennifer Lopez and Natalie Portman

According to StyleList, 'bronde' - a shade between blonde and brunette - is the hottest hair color this summer. Brown-haired girls including Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, and Natalie Portman have dyed their locks a lighter hue to go with their tans. "The key is to lighten the locks more subtly by painting select layers on top of the hair with two different volumes of color lifting creams. This ultimately gives darker hair more depth and dimension without looking like you're trying to be the blonde you're not," the editors write. 'Bronde' was first made popular by supermodel Gisele Bundchen in 2007.

Lose weight like Jennifer Love Hewitt

The actress reportedly was terrified when unflattering pictures of her in a swimsuit surfaced and has lost 20 pounds since. Featured as one of People's Most Amazing Bodies this week, she dished on her weight loss routine, saying that at the gym, she uses the elliptical for 50 minutes a day and then lifts weights for 20 minutes. She also tries not to go over 1,500 calories a day while allowing herself an occasional treat. "If I want fries, I'll eat them - I'll just do a little longer on the elliptical," she told the magazine.
