The Ear and Nose Piercing Trend of 2020 Is Here to Stay



Jenn Collins

If you’ve scrolled through Instagram in the last, idk, five minutes, you’re well aware that piercings are having a ~moment~. Gone are the days when getting your ears pierced at the mall kiosk felt peak cool—2020 is all about layering, stacking, and arranging your piercings in totally unique ways. I’m talking clusters of studs, double hoops, and ornate rings. And unlike your classic, cookie-cutter piercing, the right now version is all about you and your vibe. Translation: Customization is key. But that doesn’t mean you can’t go into the process with a few guidelines—or at the very least, some epic inspiration. Ahead, your roadmap to getting in on the trendiest beauty accessory of the year.

Your ear piercing just grew TF up

The key to curating the sh*t out of your ear? Remember that no areas are off limits, which means your ear is basically a blank canvas. Just keep in mind that everyone’s anatomy is a bit different (duh), so even though a conch hoop might look beyond cute on your roommate, it might not work best with your ear shape. So make sure you go to a legit piercer who can guide you (more on that, below) and test out spots using cuffs or even stickers.


A fully curated ear can’t happen in a single session, BTW—most piercers recommend two to three holes at a time so the area can heal properly. Pro tip: If you’re a side sleeper, you should also probs consider doing one ear at a time to avoid extra irritation (you aren’t going to find comfort on either side of your pillow if you pierce both at once). So be patient and know that waiting’s only going to help you in the long run. Promise.

Claire’s who? Here’s how we’re getting pierced in 2020:

Past pickings have been slim when it comes to places to get pierced (ahem, the mall you hung around in middle school; that sketchy-looking tattoo parlor). But that’s all changing. Cute little shops that focus *only* on piercings are popping up in cities across the country (I’m personally obsessed with Studs in NYC, which has even gotten Kaia Gerber’s stamp of approval). Prices are comparable to what you may have paid back in the day (around $35 per piercing), but the experience is way more personalized. Can’t find or get to a studio near you? Follow these two rules:

  • Before making an appointment with any piercer, check out their portfolio—aka Insta feed—to make sure you like their work.
  • Give your piercer a good once-over IRL. “If you go to someone who wants to decorate you and they don’t look like they know how to decorate themselves, that’s a red flag right there,” says Brian Keith Thompson, owner of Body Electric Tattoo.

    PSA: Everyone can pull off a nose piercing (yup, even you)

    Contrary to what your mom (or, like, your bathroom mirror) might tell you, nose piercings are for everyone. “I’ve never seen a nose that can’t pull off a stud,” says Thompson, adding that clients now ask him for multiple holes on one nostril, stud-and-hoop combos, and even symmetrical pairings. Septum rings are another popular choice—and no, it’s not a coincidence that so many celebs have them (hi, Zoë Kravitz and Willow Smith), because they’re super easy to conceal. You can gently push one up and around your nostril, just in case (despite it being a new decade and all) your old-school boss or grandma still isn’t totally sold on piercings.

    One last thing:

    The best part about piercings? Unlike that tiny tat you kinda-sorta-maybe already regret, you can pop out your jewelry if your aesthetic changes down the road. Everyone’s healing process is different, but in general, you can expect a piercing hole to look smaller over time with minimal scarring—and maybe even disappear (like, I had my nose pierced from 2010 to 2016 and you literally can’t even tell today. Magic). Translation: Go forth and getting that piercing, pls.

Coon charged in Great Falls with strangulation of a woman




GREAT FALLS — David Scott Coon has been charged in Great Falls with strangulation of a woman.

The Cascade County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release on Friday that deputies were called to Benefis Health System on Thursday to talk with a woman who reportedly had been assaulted. The woman was “visibly upset,” her left arm was “hanging limply,” and had a black eye, bruising on her neck, and ruptured blood vessels in both eyes.

The woman said that on Wednesday evening, she reportedly referred to Coon as “lazy,” which “for reasons unknown” enraged him, and he put her in a choke-hold and began yelling at her. The woman tried to tell Coon that she couldn’t breathe, but was unable to talk, and she told deputies that she lost consciousness.

The woman told deputies that she awoke on the bed and hoped it had been a bad dream, but then realized she had urinated on herself and she could not feel her left arm. She also said her throat and neck hurt, and she could barely talk.

She eventually went to the hospital, and as mandatory reporters, medical staff notified law enforcement.

Coon, 40 years old, has been charged with strangulation of a partner/family member, and partner/family member assault.

Reinvigorate Your Wardrobe for 2020




The beginning of a new year represents an ideal opportunity for a wardrobe makeover. Whether it’s upgrading your work attire or adding fresh, on-trend items, buying some new duds can also reflect a new outlook on life. 

However, being fashionable shouldn’t mean draining your bank account. In fact, many of the freshest new looks for the season may already be hanging in your closet. Here are several ways you can revamp your wardrobe for 2020.

Closet Shopping – Giving Old Clothes a New Look

While it can be fun to shop for new clothes, one great way to achieve a fresh look doesn’t even involve leaving the house or even surfing the web. In fact, an afternoon spent closet shopping can yield a wealth of new looks from old favorites, along with rediscovering long-forgotten wardrobe items from the back of the closet. Of course, the key is to determine which items to keep and which to discard, donate, trade or sell. 

A good rule of thumb is to discard anything that no longer fits. Then again, it may be possible to alter pieces that wear slightly too small or too large. Items missing buttons or that need tailoring can be salvaged with a needle and thread.

Afterward, new pieces can be added to complement the remaining items, but don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns and styles. For instance, plaid flannel shirts can be dressed up with slacks and a vest or dressed down with casual jeans or cargo shorts. 

Wardrobe Tips for Women

Fashion trends for women range from classic to extreme. Case in point: Hemlines go up and down. Slacks are skinny or wide-legged. Shoes range from ballet flats to killer stilettos. However, there are a few basic rules for women’s fashion that are always on-trend. First, build a wardrobe around the basics. For work, opt for a black, navy blue or brown suit, with either a skirt or slacks or possibly both. A few white or light-colored blouses, a pair of flats and a pair of plain pumps will complete a business-worthy look.

Casual clothes for women can be more colorful, as blouses and sweaters can be matched with jeans, khakis or leggings. Shorts and sundresses are essential for warmer weather, and splurging on one gorgeous dress or pantsuit and a quality winter coat for evening wear are solid investments. A few on-trend pieces and accessories can give a fresh look to a wardrobe of basics and classics.

Wardrobe Tips for Men

In some ways, men have it easier than women where fashion is concerned. Particularly for work, men can often get away with purchasing one or two suits or a couple of pair of slacks and jackets, matched with plain white or light blue shirts. On the other hand, there is no reason why men shouldn’t be stylish, too.

Just like women’s wardrobes, men’s attire has basic building blocks. Indeed, a blue or black suit or a blazer and slacks paired with a white or light blue button-down shirt, a few classic ties and lace-up shoes or loafers are appropriate for work. Additionally, a trench coat for cold weather is an essential wardrobe basic. For casual wear, white T-shirts look great with a leather jacket and jeans — but only if they’re crisp and clean, not dingy and worn.  

New Year, New Wardrobe

Building a new wardrobe doesn’t necessarily mean buying all new clothes. A smarter, more budget-friendly option for both men and women is to mix and match clothes that are already in their closet, along with some classics to fill out the foundation for a wardrobe. Plus, adding a few on-trend pieces gives a wardrobe of basics a fun, fresh aspect.
