Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Our sister site Racked LA interviewed Heidi Klum about her hair routine and found that apparently her mom, a hair dresser, was a hair-Nazi: "She chopped it all in different layers and then she gave me a perm afterwards, so this [gestures to the sides of her head] all got really short and I had straight sideburns and then the back was slightly waved because, obviously the long hair didn't hold the perm as well as the rest so here [sides of head] was super poodle and here [back of the head] was like a slight wave." Child abuse or useful technique to humble a future supermodel? [Racked LA]
