At Friar Tuck’s, Kylee wants to help everyone who walks in the door — and all genders are welcome — become the most authentic version of themselves. It’s rad as heck to see a major beauty company with a huge advertising budget like Dove honoring that.
“I take my coffee either black, or chock full of sugar and half and half. Today was definitely a light and sweet day.”
I like to think my morning routine screams “I’M A WRITER” but it probably mostly just screams “I DON’T TAKE GOOD ENOUGH CARE OF MY BODY.”
Welcome to AM/PM, where Autostraddle team members share our morning and evening rituals. Let’s see how Carolyn starts her day!
Growing out your body hair can be exciting, liberating, and nerve-wracking. Here’s what I learned from growing out my leg hair.
With these tips, you’ll be turning heads (off people’s necks) in no time. BadabaDOOK.
If you live in the NYC area, I WANT YOU to play hair model for a future Autostraddle post!
I did my own research, aka I texted a bunch of my queer and trans friends to ask them about their body hair. What do you do with your pit hair? How does that choice connect with your gender, your other identities, cultural or family expectations?
This look will make people think: I can’t believe it’s makeup (and not just naturally good skin)!
I think you could style your hair like Dolly Parton and people on Kentucky front porches and in Kentucky truck beds would still call you a dyke in that horrible ugly tone that only bigots can growl with.
Maps, spiders, dispatches from the Hellmouth, Standing Rock, talking with kids about open relationships, Arabelle Sicardi and the sexual politics of hair, and so much more it’ll make your head spin.
I’m gonna tell you my tomboy femme favorites and then you tell me yours, okay?
After removing my damaged locks, I realized that that was the easy part. Removing the Eurocentric straight- haired image of femininity embedded in my brain was much harder.
“I mean, not to brag, but I’ve probably cried more tears in the past year than some people manage to eke out in their entire lives.”
I’ve been spending some time collecting up my favorite looks on how to embrace my beautiful lil eyelids for all of you. Hopefully this will be helpful for all my hooded/monolid sisters out there.
Chromat’s Spring 2016 collection exemplifies summer looks wonderfully; dewy, waterproof and slick, it’s a sun-soaked romp. A lush cat-eye, rich lips and overall sunkissed makeup looks excellent with artfully cutout suits and futuristic monokinis. You’ll want a cold drink for this one, since you’ll be smokin’ hot poolside all summer long.

“I really couldn’t tell you what monoi oil is, but I like to imagine it is suckled from the nipples of woodland nymphs.”
If it’s bright, deeply pigmented and under $10, I’ll usually give it a spin. After searching high and low for quality formulas in current colors, I’ve gathered some of my personal favourite inexpensive lippies. Reap the benefits of my quest.
