Dakota Fanning’s gorgeous Elle cover!

Dakota Fanning has landed the February 2012 cover of Elle UK, and she looks absolutely gorgeous!

On her youthful age of 17-years-old:
“I feel like I’ve lived a long time, but then I realize, ‘Oh, I’m actually only 17.’ I don’t think there should be an age limit on an interest, do you know what I mean?”

On not wanting attention outside of her acting:
“I just want to be an actress. I don’t really do anything attention-grabbing. Famous just sounds so pretentious. Who am I to call myself that word?”

On not letting talk about her physical appearance affect her:
“People are always talking about this person who looks great and that person who doesn’t. It’s there, if you let it in. I let it in to an extent. I just don’t let it affect the choices I make.”

On her younger sister Elle:
“She is incredibly free-spirited and totally wears her heart on her sleeve, you know exactly what she is thinking by taking one look at her. She’s just incredibly… I don’t know, I wish I could be more like her sometimes.”

On not comparing herself with her sister:
“We see ourselves as to completely different entities. I mean, we don’t even look alike.”

New Trend: Botox for Hair?

L’Oreal has released a new in-salon Professional Fiberceutic Fiber Filling Treatment. In other words, Botox for hair.

Celebrity stylist Negin Zand at Sally Hershberger’s West Hollywood Salone is already using the product on her celebrity clients, and the response has been great!

Who in particular? “Everyone,” she says, with a sly smile. And we know her list of clients includes Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Sheryl Crow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Bosworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cate Blanchett, Diane Lane, Meg Ryan, Evan Rachel Wood, Jessica Biel, Jane Fonda, Megan Fox, Carey Mulligan, to name just a few.

This new L’Oreal product finds the damage in the hair strands and smooths out the surface, hence the nickname Botox for Hair. Zand explains: “The product is really great for women with fine, dry or colored hair and hair that’s gotten damaged from blow drying and flat-ironing. It makes the hair smoother, shinier, silkier. But it can only be professionally once applied every six weeks. Like everything, there can be too much of a good thing.”

The active molecule — trademarked as Intra-Cylane — is currently only available through salons and must be applied by hair-dressers. It is washed into the hair using a shampoo, and then once the hair has been towel dried, more of the chemical is added in serum form. Inside word is that L’Oreal will soon launch a range of consumer Botox for Hair shampoos and conditioners to be used in between the salon treatments. The treatment costs $100 at the Hershberger salon, located at 760 North La Cienega Boulevard, West Hollywood.

This new miracle product is just in time for the 2012 awards season. We’re gonna go on record predicting a major hair trend: shiny, silky hair on the nominees and presenters at the Critics Choice, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Independent Spirit Awards and the Oscars.

I would be happy to offer my hair up as a test dummy if anyone local is looking to try it out! This helps explain why most these female celebs have amazing hair!

So I Googled this product, and did find that you can buy it on Amazon, although that kinda scares me.
