Galaxy inspired make up and hair is popular, but now people all over the world are dyeing their hair the color of space and it's beautiful! This trend is obviously for the more daring of us, but it's so worth a try. We're all fascinated with the universe we live in, so why not express our fascination with the ever expanding space through our hair style? Galaxy hair is a thing and this trend needs to take over Montreal ASAP.
Grey and cold times are ahead of us. Colorful hair can make make fall and winter so much more vibrant and exciting. Our city desperately needs some color! Imagine how fun it would be to just people watch and stare at gorgeous blue locks all day every day!
Take a look at some of the most popular photos of this trend. I literally can't stop staring, it's so beautiful. Galaxy hair makes me think of infinity, stars, the moon and the sun, countless planets and sparkles. I'm seriously considering dyeing my hair this color and becoming Montreal's very own space mermaid.
Our city just looks good from any angle. On Monday, European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet shared some dazzling new photos of Montreal and the South Shore from the International Space Station.
"Montreal, home of the [Canadian Space Agency] and the scene of Nadia Comăneci's feat at the 1976 Olympics...!" Pesquet captioned the photos.
He added that he has "many good memories" of the city from a year he spent here studying.
Pesquet's pics show downtown Montreal, the green heart that is Mount Royal Park, and the surrounding boroughs, as well as a bit of Longueuil.
He specifically highlighted the Olympic Stadium, visible at the top right of the first photo, and the Canadian Space Agency campus, the barely perceivable ellipse-shaped patch at the bottom right of the second photo, just below the runway of the Saint-Hubert Airport.

Montreal has all kinds of different bars, but these changemakers say many of them fall short in making space for LGBTQIA2+ women. For this reason, Avery Burrow, event organizer, and Resto Keela teamed up to create 5 à 7s for LGBTQIA2+ women that take place twice a month.
The events were created for members of the LGBTQ2S+ community to connect. According to Burrow, "queer women can actually have a reoccurring space where they can meet each other, flirt, make friends, and feel safe," at these new 5 à 7s.
Keela has a cute wooden terrasse located on rue Atateken with a beautiful spacious interior. These events are set to take place every first and third Wednesday of the month for the entirety of the summer and all LGBTQIA2+ women are welcome.
"[It was] better than I ever could have imagined! [...] And the wildest part about it was that I knew almost no one there (insert joke about how the queer community is super small and we've all dated)," Burrow said when asked how the first event went.
"Also the age range was awesome — from 18-year-olds attending their first queer event to women in their 70s catching up with old friends. This is how a lesbian space should feel; welcoming to all ages, gender expressions, and ethnicities."
During the events, you can get a pint of beer for $5 and any speed rail drink for $6.
5 à 7 For LGBTQIA2+ Women At Keela
Address: Resto Keela; 1237, rue Atateken, Montreal, QC
When: Every first and third Wednesday of the month throughout the summer, starting at 5 p.m.
The 123-unit development, named La Rose des vents, will be a six-storey building located in the Technopôle Angus eco-district in Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie.
The building will include commercial space, a social community space on the first floor for tenants and neighbourhood residents to gather, paid laundry facilities, bicycle parking, and a bulletin board area.
The Technopôle Angus eco-district is a neighbourhood in Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie featuring 895,000 square feet of housing, offices, public space and green space — all "designed according to the most stringent planning and environmental standards," according to the website.
The new student housing project will be part of an "energy loop" with the other buildings in the green neighbourhood, reducing the entire neighbourhood's drinking water and energy usage.
How much will the units cost?

David Harris, media relations officer for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), told MTL Blog that the building will hold 87 studios, 32 two-bedroom apartments and two three-bedroom units.
Thirty-seven of the building's 123 units will be rented at 78% of the median rent in the area, and affordability will be maintained for at least 20 years.
Aptly named Inspirations, almost half of the original exhibit's segments have been revamped or added to "reflect current events and keep with the times," according to a press release — and a new roster of Quebec artists have joined the project.
OASIS immersion founders Nicolas Lassonde and Denys Lavigne said in the release that the exhibit's new changes are "part of [their] goal of making OASIS immersion an ongoing hub of creative output and innovation."
Quebec YouTuber Émile Roy's presence in the exhibition features a "fresh new take on hope and resilience," while the Quebec-based lo-fi studio Vallée Duhamel's exhibit features a "hygge-inspired experience" with music by composer Jean-Phi Goncalves. Hygge is a Danish term for coziness and contentment.
