Haircut 100 cover Harry Styles’ ‘As It Was’ in Maida Vale studios

Haircut 100 have covered Harry Styles‘ hit ‘As It Was’ live at BBC’s iconic Maida Vale studios.

The ’80s new wave band performed a set for Radio 2 as part of Piano Room Month that was broadcast yesterday (February 16) and were accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra for their cover. They also revisited two of their classic hits, ‘Love Plus One’ and ‘Fantastic Day’, elsewhere in the set, which you can listen to in full here.

“It’s a great song, isn’t it? [It’s] so catchy,” said frontman Nick Heyward when Radio 2’s Ken Bruce asked him why they had chosen to cover ‘As It Was’.

Haircut 100 were only active between 1981-1984 but have since reunited. “We’re back together till death us do part. This is it for life now,” Heywood said. “It’s not just for Christmas, Haircut 100 is for life.”

The band was also asked about their music being heard by younger audiences for the first time. “It’s like a second hand shop, isn’t it? But it’s new to you when you buy it, it’s a new outfit to you,” Heywood said.

The band’s 1982 debut album ‘Pelican West’ is about to be re-released. They are also set to play a one-off reunion show at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in May 13 and told Bruce that they hope to tour later in the year.

Meanwhile, Styles took home four gongs at the BRIT Awards 2023 last weekend, including Song Of The Year for ‘As It Was’. Having also won the awards for Best Album, Best Pop/R&B Artist and Artist Of The Year, Styles

Spirit Airlines Baggage Fees: How to Avoid Bag Fees [2023]

If you regularly hunt for cheap flights to your favorite destinations, you already know that Spirit has some of the best ticket prices in the industry. Historically, Spirit Airlines has offered round-trip flights for as low as $12. But bag fees will cost you more than twice that amount, and Spirit’s standard fare tickets don’t include any bags, even carry-ons.

Baggage fees are a relatively new concept that airlines began collecting a little over a decade ago. Since then, the cost has only increased for most airlines. And it’s not likely to change anytime soon — airlines collectively brought in more than $2.8 billion from bag fees alone in 2020 even though air travel was down by 60% due to the pandemic. So, it’s an important source of revenue for the industry. Luckily, there are some ways to get discounted baggage fees on Spirit — or avoid the cost altogether with the right tactics and credit cards.

Get paid to watch videos while you fly (or anywhere)
Watching videos whenever you’re just chilling on the couch or waiting for your flight to depart can earn you up to an extra $225 every month. That will cover those pesky baggage fees and more. This is a legit way to earn cash, and you can do it with a company called Inbox Dollars.

What is Spirit Airlines’ baggage policy?

Spirit Airlines policy for carry-ons

Spirit Airlines’ baggage allowance allows you to bring on personal item onto the flight for free. That item can’t exceed 18 x 14 x 8 inches including handles and wheels. 

In addition to your free personal item, which could include a small backpack, laptop bag, or purse; you can bring a carry-on bag, so long as it doesn’t exceed 22 x 18 x 10

Eggs were the bizarre trend at New York Fashion Week

An emerging trend is on the horizon, and we really weren’t egg-specting it. (We’re sorry in advance for the egg puns.)

While New York Fashion Week 2023 highlighted so many new trends you can shop now, as well as street style everyone is wearing, it turns out that eggs might be making their way into our wardrobes. 

Eggs are a staple in most refrigerators. They’re perfect as a breakfast food, as a baking ingredient… the list goes on and on. One thing, however, we never expected eggs to be was fashionable.

A few months ago, we saw a TikTok on the account @nailedbynika of a nail artist creating a 3D egg on an acrylic nail. It was actually pretty cute, in a surrealist, supermarket fashion kind of way. 

This wasn’t a super shocking or questionable design in our opinion, seeing as we’ve seen a myriad of quirky patterns become popular over the last few years – for example, cow print, or even the very controversial emergence of chevron. 

Lisa Says Gah!, a popular, ethical fashion brand that sells their products mainly online, also indulges in selling clothes with fun, food-related patterns. They have a popular white t-shirt called their Dana Long Sleeve with a baguette on it, for example – or you could peruse their Italian Summer Collection, which has prints on pants, shirts, and dresses that feature cans of sardines, bottles of wine, grape tomatoes, and more.

Recently, at the Puppet and Puppet show at New York Fashion week, we saw another food-related clothing item emerge – an egg bra. Pictured above, this egg bra was made with a group of variously shaped black crystals, and boasts sunnyside eggs in a position that perfectly covers the model’s nipples. 

Some models were given egg bras that

Carol's Daughter Born To Repair (& Made To Care) Pajama Jam

Marsai Martin flexed a head full of beautiful curls at Carol’s Daughter’s Pajama Jam in celebration of their newest collection, Born to Repair. The actress and producer announced her latest role as a brand ambassador for the haircare company that has prioritized healthy tresses since 1993.

The Born to Repair collection strives to restore moisture while rebuilding the strength of your hair. Heat damage, constant manipulation, and lack of hydration can be detrimental, and this line aims to reconstruct your hair strand by strand.

Check out the magic of the night in this reel, and read what Marsai has to say about becoming a brand ambassador, her favorite product from the Born to Repair collection, and her thoughts on Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance.

HelloBeautiful: You’ve just become Carol’s Daughter’s latest brand ambassador for the Born to Repair collection. I saw you on the red carpet and you had beautiful curls in your hair. Tell me about that hairstyle and what products you used to achieve the look.

Marsai Martin: I love doing different styles, but for this event, I knew I wanted to embrace different textures and curls and do something more natural and simplistic than what I usually do. And, of course, for this, I wanted to use the collection.

I use the 60 Second Moisture Treatment, the shampoo, and the conditioner. And I love a good leaving cream, so I made sure I put that on after I was done washing my hair. Oh, the Reviving Oil, too – basically the whole collection.

The entire collection is refreshing and moisturizing. And that’s the main reason why I wanted to connect with the brand. They care about hair that’s damaged or hair that has been through a lot. They care

Are Messenger Bags Making a Comeback?

When I think of messenger bags, I don’t think of a schoolbag meant to carry the miscellany required for a long day of college classes. No, I don’t think of the practicality of them at all. Rather, when I think of messenger bags, I actually think of one messenger bag in particular. The only messenger bag that ever mattered.

Ok, ok, I’m being a little dramatic, but immediately what comes to mind at the mere mention of a messenger bag is the Chanel Grafitti Messenger bag from Spring/Summer 2015. The messenger bag was released a year after one of Chanel’s most divisive bags to date, the Grafitti Backpack of Spring/Summer 2014, presumably to capitalize on the backpack’s demand and sales success.

I loved the messenger bag just as much as I loved the backpack, and I still feel a pang in my stomach when I see a rare one IRL. Today, the messenger is making a comeback, which has me all in my feels for the greatest messenger bag there ever was.

The Modern Messenger

With the return of big bags and designers paying more attention to functionality than the trend towards micro-minis, messengers, too, are have their second-coming. It makes sense, because alongside the return to more practical silhouettes is fashion’s constant obsession with nostalgia, and messenger bags were once a highly-beloved silhouette.

From the runways of Gucci and Coach to the latest and greatest bags from Prada and Bottega Veneta, we’ve been seeing a return to the casual-cool messenger bags popularized in the 2000s and 2010s. The ideal messenger bag is a perfect combination of utilitarian and fashionable, a perfect shape for a day bag. As spring assortments are slowly trickling out, you can bet we’ll begin to see more messengers too. Take a look below
