Stepping inside Sandi Burrows’s Upper East Side studio, every jewel tells a story–both figuratively and literally. A heart-shaped brooch reads “anger into action” while globe-shaped pins are splashed with “nothing matters more,” a direct reference to global climate change. Stacked bangles reading “resist” line a table with pink “smash the patriarchy” pendants and “civil rights are birthrights” medallions. These pieces, and more, are all part of Burrows’s Passionate Protest collection, which she launched in 2020.
Burrows has been an industry fixture for over half a century, and has worked as an in-house jeweler with Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, and Ralph Lauren. In 1974, she started designing pieces for her namesake line, which over time has included fine jewelry, custom commissions, and now Passionate Protest. It comes at a lower price point and has attracted a cult following among people who align themselves with activism, at least, on the Upper East Side, where pieces are sold at the boutique Blue Tree, NYC. “The great thing about New York is anything goes right?” she says. “I was not intimidated in any way, or afraid, to put bold things out there because there will be a customer for it.”
Passionate Protest pieces are designed to be layered up and worn with personality. Take, for example, how the designer herself wears multiple versions of the pendants as a charm necklace and also attaches them to her bags, for instance, which definitely garners curious stares on the subway, according to her. There’s a variety of different gender pendants that can also be strung on chains and draped on top of each other alongside necklaces that read “massacre misogyny” for a multi-layered messaging effect.
“Trump got elected, and I was just bitching and bitching and bitching to my son until he said to me, ‘mommy, just shut up or do something about it.’” Burrows started with themes of humanitarianism, environmentalism, and above all else voting, before getting laser focused on the aspects of toxic masculinity and patriarchy that she says are at the root of many of these issues.

Hair Filler Is the Secret Behind Most Celebrity Bobs
Between Barbiecore style and skunk stripe hair, it’s clear that the post-lockdown beauty vibe is go big or go home—hence the rise in superlong mermaid hair extensions and a subsequent surge in perfectly blunt bobs.
The two styles may seem like opposites, but for celebrity stylists, the long-then-short-then-long lifestyle is just another day’s work…of installing hair extensions. “To go from long hair to short and back the next day, celebrities braid their hair, and glue weft extensions onto the braids, leaving just their natural hairline out,” celebrity hairstylist Marc Mena says of the temporary “faux bob.” “It’s not permanent, but it allows them to change their look dramatically, and no one can see the difference.”
It’s true: Chris Appleton, who styled Kim Kardashian’s 2019 bob and regularly styles J.Lo’s hair, confirmed that he “hides” the braided hair under extensions in his Behind the Chair masterclass. But this technique only works for a few days, Mena adds, comparing the faux bob to gluing on false eyelashes.

Other celebrities, like Khloe Kardashian and Megan Fox, who like to play with varying lengths for longer periods of time usually opt for clip-ins, tape extensions, keratin bonds, and/or hand-tied extensions, Lilybeth Vargas, hair extensions specialist and master colorist at The Parlor, tells Glamour. She personally recommends clip-ins on an event-by-event basis.
As for why so many celebrities wear hair extensions in the first place? It’s possible their hair is damaged from changing it so much. “Celebrities change their hairstyles for the trends that are in at that moment, which can be a lot on natural hair,” RPZL lead stylist Stephanie Angelone tells Glamour. “This can cause a damage, thinning, and hair loss, so adding hair extensions, or ‘hair filler,’ will add fullness and help get their hair back its integrity.”

That Prada Logo Tank Top You’ve Been Eyeing Has Finally Hit Stores
Sure to be the street style It item this upcoming fashion month, that white triangle-plaque logo tank top from Prada’s fall 2022 collection has finally hit stores. The top, a ribbed scoop neck, opened the show (worn by Kaia Gerber) and was styled throughout the collection from beginning to end. We saw it under oversized shearling jackets and on top of many different interpretations of the collection’s lovely three-layer skirts.
Just seeing how many looks were anchored by the tank tells us of the top’s versatility but also its cult-status potential. This top will likely enjoy the white-hot status of the brand’s triangle-plaque bucket hat or smooth leather loafers; this is certainly another one of those wish-list items fashion obsessives are sure to line up for or, in this case, save up for to wear this season and several to come.
