19 Ways to Master the Wet Hair Look IRL

Images: Imaxtree

We’ve picked up a lot of good beauty tips from the runways recently. From fresh ways to wear blush to flipping the script with edgy underliner, our repertoire has expanded exponentially. But there’s one hair trend that seems a bit impractical IRL: slicked-back hair.

Also referred to as the wet hair look, soaking locks in gel or mousse has become commonplace at fashion shows. Surprisingly, the tactic produces a wide variety of results. For those blessed with curls, the technique adds extra bounce to spirals. It works wonders on the roots of a classic low pony by providing a slick foundation and even helps define shorter hairstyles. And whether you part your hair down the middle or off to one side, wetting down your locks will give an instant uplift.

With searches on Pinterest for slicked-back hair ticking upward, you can bet we’ll be seeing the wet hair look off the runways this year. The key to making the trend translate is picking the right products. We like Redken’s Full Frame 07, which actually looks wet even after it dries. Wella Professionals’ EIMI Sculpt Force is another strong option since all you have to do is apply it to wet hair and let your strands air-dry. (For extra shine, finish with Wella Professionals’ EIMI Glam Mist Shine Mist.)

Now that we’ve got our arsenal lined up, here are 19 slicked-back hair looks from the runways for inspo. Whether you’re looking to go subtle or supersaturated, you’ll find a style that suits.

Video: Whack Jobs – The Story of Winter Fat Biking in Michigan

This great video comes our way courtesy of our friends over at Gear Junkie. It takes us up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where we meet a group of “whack jobs” who love riding their bikes in the snow all winter long. Some don’t understand their passion for riding in frigid temperatures, but it looks like a lot of fun to me. Check it out in the clip below.

Watch a firefighter catch a child thrown from a burning building in Georgia

Georgia firefighter catching child from burning building

A helmet camera captured a firefighter catching a five-year-old child who was thrown from a burning building in Georgia in early January.

The video shows Capt. Scott Stroup catch the child, who was thrown by the father from a ladder three stories up, as people screamed and embers rained down to the ground.

A number of other children were dropped from the building and caught by firefighters as well. 

A four-year-old child was dropped from a balcony and caught by Capt. Jackie Peckrul, according to Inside Edition. Babies as young as one-month-old were also dropped and caught, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

“We were catching babies like a football — literally,” DeKalb County fire Capt. Eric Jackson told the Journal-Constitution. “There were adults that were on the balcony that were dropping their babies right into our arms. We had a couple firefighters catching babies, so it was just really incredible.”

The fire on January 3 in Decatur, Georgia injured 12 people, including 8 children, according to WSB-TV.

Remembering Dan Gurney

Gods are not immortal, after all.
Dan Gurney, one of the most versatile and talented racers in the history of US auto racing, died Sunday at age 86 of complications from pneumonia.
Gurney’s family announced his passing with a written statement, saying, “With one last smile on his handsome face, Dan drove off into the unknown just before noon today. In deepest sorrow, with gratitude in our hearts for the love and joy you have given us during your time on this earth, we say ‘Godspeed.”
Gurney won seven times in IndyCar Series competition, five times in what is now NASCAR’s Monster Energy Cup Series, and four times in Formula 1 races from 1962 to 1970. He also excelled in Sports Car racing, teaming with A.J. Foyt and Ford Motor Company to win the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans, and claiming the inaugural running of what is now the Rolex 24 at Daytona in 1962. His career resume includes 51 career victories and 47 podium finishes in 312 starts.
He is one of only three drivers to win in all four major motorsports disciplines, joining Mario Andretti and Juan Pablo Montoya.
The highlight of his legendary career came during a spectacular, two-week span in 1967 when he finished second in the Indianapolis 500, drove a Ford GT40 MKIV to victory at Le Mans with co-driver AJ Foyt, then won the Belgian Grand Prix in his own Gurney Eagle; becoming the only American to win an F1 race in a car of his own design.
Bobby Unser demolished the Indianapolis Motor Speedway by an incredible 17 mph in 1972 at the wheel of a Gurney Eagle, leading easily until the ignition failed. The next year, 19 of the Indy’s 33 starters drove Eagles, with Gordon Johncock claiming the win.
The Long Island native – the son of an opera singer — is credited with creating the wicker bill; an aerodynamic device still widely used in both the motorsports and aviation industries, and the first to use a full-faced helmet. He was also the first to celebrate a race victory by spraying the celebratory champagne, rather than drinking it.
Shortly after retiring as a driver, Gurney was convinced to take part in the 1971 Cannonball Baker Sea-to-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, an unsanctioned, highly illegal event that covered public highways from New York to California. Co-driving a blisteringly fast Ferrari with the late writer Brock Yates, Gurney completed the 2,863-mile event in 35 hours and 54 minutes, quipping “at no time did we exceed 175 mph.”
Gurney was a co-founder of Championship Auto Racing Teams, which sanctioned open-wheel racing in the United States from 1979 to 2008.
“Dan Gurney was not only a great innovator, he was a great driver,” said Foyt of his fallen comrade. “It didn’t matter if it was a road course or an oval, an Indy car or a stock car. I never use the word `legend,’ but in the case of Dan, he was a true legend of our sport. We became close friends at Le Mans in ’67 and winning it brought us closer together. He was a super guy. Even though we were competitors in the Indy cars, we always respected each other highly.
“As we got older we became closer, (we called) each other on birthdays or when we were sick. Now I’m glad we got to spend the time together we did at Long Beach last year, along with Edsel Ford. We told a lot of stories and we had a lot of fun talking about the old times. It’s hard to believe he’s gone and I’m really going to miss him. My thoughts are with Evi and his family.”
Mario Andretti eulogized Gurney on Twitter, saying, “I was first inspired by him when I was in midgets, dreaming of being like him. I was last inspired by him yesterday. Yes, I mean forever. He understood me better than anyone else, which is why he wrote the foreword for my book in 2001.”
“When we talk about legendary American drivers, owners and car constructors on an international stage, Dan Gurney is one of the all-time greats,” said J. Douglas Boles, president of Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “His skill in all three areas helped him make an indelible mark and serve as a huge influence in this sport. Dan was a giant in the racing world in every sense. Our sincere condolences and prayers are with his wife, Evi, and the entire Gurney family. Godspeed, Dan Gurney.”
Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile said, “Dan’s success — and his sheer presence — helped elevate our facility to the world-wide stature that our founder, Bill France Sr., originally envisioned. As a driver, (he) helped establish the speedway as a pre-eminent road-racing circuit. Years later, as a champion car owner in IMSA, he helped cement the speedway’s legacy in that regard. We all are fortunate to have crossed his path.”
The Gurney family will hold a private funeral in the near future. They have asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Hoag Hospital Foundation in Newport Beach, Cal.

A Historic 126 Year Old Museum May Be Destroyed By Termites

A Historic 126 Year Old Museum May Be Destroyed By Termites

The worst place for a termite infestation to occur would have to be in a museum; especially a museum that contains hundreds of thousands of priceless artifacts and is one hundred and twenty six years old. Not long ago officials with the Sarawak Museum in Malaysia discovered a termite infestation within the popular east Asian museum. After a thorough inspection, museum officials announced that the museum would be closed to the public for a period of two years in order to eradicate the widespread termite infestation. If the termite eradication program goes as planned the museum will reopen sometime during the year of 2020. The cost of refurbishing the museum will cost thirty eight million in Malaysian currency.

In 1891, the second White Rajah of Sarawak, Charles Brooke, started construction on what would one day become Malaysia’s oldest and most treasured museum. Brooke decided to construct the museum after the famous natural scientist, Alfred Russel Wallace, convinced him that a new museum would be perfect for housing some interesting specimens that Wallace had been collecting from the Malay Archipelago at the time. Today the museum holds two hundred thousand different archeological, artistic, sociological and historical objects in its collection. Some of these objects include animals that had been subjected to primitive forms of taxidermy and human skulls. The museum holds some of the oldest human remains in existence. Primitive human artwork can also be viewed by museum visitors.

Sarawak Chief Minister Abang Johari Openg announced that both the museum’s structure and many of the items on display within the museum have been ravaged by termites. Simply relocating the vast number of artifacts to a safe location could take an entire year. The termite infestation has already visibly damaged the Victorian style structure. The museum is popular among natives and tourists as four hundred thousand to six hundred thousand people visit the Sarawak Museum every year. It is likely that the museum will reopen sometime in 2020 if the termite presence can be eradicated within the planned timespan. Although admission to the museum has always been free, this may change once the museum reopens. The new admission price may be necessary in order to pay-off the extensive repairs caused by termites.

Given the presence of destructive termite species in Malaysia, do you think that future termite infestations can be prevented in the reopened museum?
