Guess what this amazing, bizarre-looking little machine does? It produces perfect curls—without having to use a curling iron! Conair has just released two versions of its new "curl machines"—a pro edition, which retails at salons for $250, and a consumer version, which is set to hit stores mid-August and will be priced at $100. The technology is completely different than a traditional curling iron: "With a traditional curling iron, you clip the hair and you roll it," explained director of engineering Vito Carlucci. "The first turn gets the most heat, the second less because it’s insulated by a layer of hair and then the third even less. This one heats from both the inside and the outside, so you get a nice even, long-lasting ringlet." [WWD]

Guess what this bunny is doing? It's chillin'. Because India has officially banned animal testing for cosmetics.

"PETA India looks forward to working with the government on the next step: a ban on testing household cleaners and similar products in India." [StyleBistro Inbox]

Elizabeth Arden is about to launch its newest signature scent, Untold—which we hear will hit counters in just a few weeks, in mid-July. "This is a modern interpretation of a woman, which will bring younger consumers to the franchise," said Arden's President, CEO, and Chairman E. Scott Beattie. "We believe this will be a gateway for those consumers to show the brand is relevant to them.
