Birchbox Short List

Watch Anastasia Steele Try Her Hand at Comedy

This weekend, 50 Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson hosted Saturday Night Live. Between much lip biting and 50 Shades-shaming, the actress also held her own with the hilarious cast. Check out our favorite skit, "Say What You Want to Say," depicting women throwing off social norms ("Sure, I'll split that cookie.") for complete honesty ("I'm eating the entire cookie.). (SNL)

Follow Your Donation

If you've ever donated your hair you may have wondered, "Where did it go?" This new video follows one woman's ponytail donation to Wigs for Kids from first chop, through the sorting and treating process, to becoming part of a wig for a young girl with alopecia. It's a heartwarming journey that will make you reconsider leaving your hair on the salon floor. (BuzzFeed)

Get Your True Crime Fix

With the arrival of Serial's second season hanging in the balance, you can still fill your desire for stranger-than-fiction true crime drama with HBO's new documentary miniseries, The Jinx. The episodes follow Robert Durst, a millionaire suspected of murdering at least three people, who has agreed to be interviewed as part of an investigation into his alleged crimes. Creepy. (HBO)
