Carrie Bickmore under fire for launching cancer appeal

The Project host Carrie Bickmore (centre, with co-host Waleed Aly) has been slammed online for launching her brain cancer appeal on the same day as a rival fundraiser for motor neurone disease. Carrie (right with new partner Chris Walker) is now selling a new set of pink and grey beanies from today as part of her Beanies 4 Brain Cancer appeal. The Project rung in the occasion with mentions of Carrie's late husband Greg Lange (left) who passed away from the disease and a young girl who has been struck down with brain cancer and told there isn't enough funding for a cure. The launch day coincided with the Big Freeze at the MCG which saw sales of iconic blue beanies in support of research into motor neurone disease. The Big Freeze is an annual fundraiser by Fight MND that 'freezes' Australian personalities by sliding them into a giant ice pool before the Queen's Birthday AFL match.

Jordan Garrett on the exact place you should part hair

Jordan Garrett, Stylist at Daniel Hersheson, insists there's a specific parting for each face shape - and choosing the right one for yours can knock pounds off your face. Ladies with oval face shapes like Jessica Alba, top left, can opt for any style because their face shape is so versatile. Jordan says that opting for a centre parting, left, is, however, the most flattering look over a side parting, right. Ladies with a round face like Jennifer Lawrence, top right, need to focus on creating structure by focusing on a centre parting, left, says Jordan. Parting your hair in the centre is much more flattering than on the side, right. The secret hair hack for a long face shape - like Sarah Jessica Parker's, bottom right - is a deep side parting, which the actress sported recently. Although she made it her signature look in Sex and the City, Jordan says ladies with long faces like hers should avoid a centre parting, right. If, like Scarlett Johansson, bottom left, you have a heart face shape, you should go for a severe side parting, left, because it breaks up your chin line. Scarlett often mixes up her hairstyle but Jordan believes a severe side, left, is better than a centre one, right.
