What's Hot Now
Head & Shoulders always nabs the best tressed spokesmodels, from Sofia Vergara and her famous silky strands to Troy Polamalu’s mega curls. And the brand’s newest ambassador definitely meets the amazing mane mark. He also has a BIG secret — he doesn’t actually use shampoo.

The wide receiver is kicking off his new gig by starring in his first ad (available exclusively on the brand’s YouTube channel) which focuses on how his shoulders carry his “hopes, dreams, his reputation and the admiration of his fans” — not dandruff. (If this football thing doesn’t work out, acting may be his next calling.)
So we caught up with the NFL star to find out all his secrets to such flake-free strands. Turns out, he swears by doubling-up on the conditioner and steering clear of shampoo. “I guess it has a lot to do with my mom and dad and I got the hair that they have, but I honestly just condition it and take a shower — anytime I take a shower I just run the hot water through it and pretty much just let it do its own thing,” Beckham tells PEOPLE. “I don’t shampoo my hair, I just condition it.”
This also happens to be his fool-proof way to tackle horrible combat helmet hair. “If I put my helmet on and my hair is dry and I’m going to the game, I’m going to get very bad helmet hair,” he explains. “It just goes all over the place. As a matter of fact I think a lot of the pictures you can see me taking it off on the sidelines you can see just how wild it really is. I always shower right after and it goes back right to being curly.”

And because he already has a beauty contract under his belt, and we know how stylish he is (he’s modeled for Vogue and has the craziest, most impressive sneaker collection we’ve ever seen) we had to know if he sees fashion designing in his future. He won’t give up much details yet, he does say, “I love shoes and I love fashion and it’s just something I’ve always done. Shoes have always been one of my favorite things so it’s something I try and keep up on.”
For right now, the footballer is just focusing on his new hair opportunity. “It’s honestly just an honor to be a part of a team like this.” He also touches on what it’s like trying to follow in Polamalu’s famous footsteps. “It’s a lot of hair to fill, I guess you’d say, but I’m going to try my best to carry on the torch.”

If you don’t know who Emily Ratajkowski is by now, it’s time to pay attention. The 24-year-old model-turned-actress, who you may recognize from last year’s Gone Girl (she played Ben Affleck’s character’s mistress), stars in the Entourage movie and the upcoming comedy, We Are Your Friends, alongside Zac Efron. But most importantly, she’s quickly becoming one of the most watchable stars on the red carpet thanks to her sexy style choices and bold beauty moments. The New York Times noticed — and sat down with the breakout star to chat all things beauty, fitness and more, below.
Stars over 50 looking ridiculously toned is nothing new (you’ve probably seen the amazing bikini shots from celebs including Christie Brinkley and Helen Mirren). Now 57-year-old Sharon Stone is getting in on the action, posing for Harper’s BAZAAR‘s September issue in nothing more than heels and diamonds.
Who Tried It: Andrea Lavinthal, Style and Beauty Director
Why I Tried It: As an attempt to find at least one type of workout class that I can tolerate
What I Tried: FitReserve, a site that allows you to book classes at tons of NYC’s top boutique fitness studios
Level of Difficulty: Zero for the process of signing up for the classes, but between a 7-9 for the actual classes (you want me to hold a plank for how long?!)
