Red Carpet Fashion Awards

2014 MTV Movie Awards - ArrivalsJessica Alba looked like the epitome of spring with her big, bouncy curls and crop top ensemble. The mastermind behind her luxurious locks? Celebrity hair stylist Davey Newkirk.

Davey started by spritzing the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray all throughout Jessica’s damp hair.

Using a large round brush, he blew out her hair while giving her tons of volume and shine.

After her hair was dry, he worked in 2-inch sections and used a large 1 ½ curling iron to give her big, voluminous waves.

To allow the curl to set, he secured each section with a duckbill clip. When her hair was cool, he removed the clips and brushed through the waves with a flat brush.

Using a dollop of John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème, he worked this through her hair for shine and smoothness.

He gave her a deep side part and, to keep her strands in place, added a bit of John Frieda Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Gel and locked everything in with the John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.

Hair Trend Spotting MTV Movie Awards Flipped Waves2

The 2014 MTV Movie Awards were filled with Red Carpet surprises, but some of the most talked about looks had more in common than expected.

Nicki Minaj, Jessica Alba, Rita Ora and Kate Upton were amongst the many who flipped their waves to one side. Creating svelte curls may seem difficult, but this trick will help you to easily score the look at home.

Nicki Minaj’s do was smooth at the roots, but a voluminous mane adds drama to the trend. Before drying hair, Jessica Alba’s stylist applied John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow- Out. The trick to creating the Old Hollywood curl is to begin with your hair parted down the middle. Divide locks into 1-inch sections curling each piece outward and away from your face.

Save the strands on the top left for last and curl them inward, towards your head. Finally, create a barely there part similar to Rita Ora’s, by flipping the hair on the right over with your fingers to the left. The motion reverses the curl pattern creating soft waves that frame the side of your face.

If you prefer your curls to fall in the opposite direction simply reverse the steps. To polish strands Kate Upton’s stylist smoothed on Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine.

2014 PaleyFest - "Mad Men"Jessica Pare’s ethereal waves were styled by LA based hairstylist, Marcus Francis for the PaleyFest 2014 Honouring ‘Mad Men’ event.

Here are his tips on how this classic look can easily be created at home with the same steps and products used on Pare.

Francis says, “On damp hair, mist roots with Suave Volumizing Root Boost Spray.

Once combed through, apply several pumps of Suave Natural Infusion Leave-In Foam, focusing on the mid shaft and ends.” This will add body to tresses and leaves curls feeling soft and weightless.

Francis recommends that you dry hair and smooth strands with a medium size round brush.

“Make a deep side part and using a 3/4″ curling iron, wrap small sections of hair from roots to ends and pin into a pin curl. On both sides brush hair back behind the ear and curl the ends to keep the fullness in the back.”

To lock curls in place, “Use the Touchable Finish Extra Hold Aerosol Hairspray by Suave and let the hair set for 10 minutes in pins before brushing out.

After lightly teasing the top and front brush hair back to blend into the sides.”

“A bobby pin placed vertically behind each ear will secure the hair in place. Smooth out any fly aways with a small amount of the Suave Natural Infusion Awapuhi Strengthening Light Leave-In Cream.”

And voila! You’re instantly a ‘Mad Men’ beauty.

Get The Look Lena Headey Braided Textured Bob2
For the ‘Game of Thrones’ premiere Dove’s celebrity stylist Mark Townsend styled the tresses of Lena Headey.

Mark said, “It was all about relaxed glamour for Lena. I loved her Jenny Packham dress and felt it was very pretty yet edgy so I wanted her hair to have the same feeling.”

“I started by applying a large dollop of Dove Oxygen Moisture Leave In Foam to her damp hair and scrunched it dry with my hands and the diffuser on the blowdryer. I love keeping as much of Lena’s natural wave in the hair and this foam doesn’t weigh the hair down or get crunchy and it gives the hair tons of volume.”

Next, I gave her a deep side part and sprayed Sally Hershberger salon Texture Blast Spray all over to give the hair great texture and light hold and then braided one side of the hair and laid the braid on top of the hair at the back and then tucked the end if the braid under the hair. I think the braid sitting on top of that heavily textured bob that makes this look so modern and fresh.

“I finished by taking a few drops of the Dove Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment through her hair for lots of shine.”

Beauty Trend Spotting Part-less Hair

The perfect way to keep your stray hairs out of your face, without resorting to a ponytail, is to go part-less. What’s even better, this trend can be worn on various lengths. Several celebs have decided to stop hiding behind a hairstyle and are letting their face take center stage.

The extra height at the crown adds instant drama. Start by blow-drying freshly washed hair upside down and lifting roots with a round brush. Once you’re finished, flip hair up and gently finger comb strands backwards.

Keeping your tresses smooth and frizz free is key. To create the sleekness of Mary-Kate Olsen’s style, try Oribe’s smooth style serum.

For instant glam like Emmy Rossum, add romantic waves to the ends of you hair. Opt for a 2-inch barrel iron such as Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron.

If you’re feeling a bit edgier, keep straighten ends as seen on Emma Watson. Avoid heat overload by protecting hair with Tresemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray.

And who could forget Jennifer Lawrence’s brushed back pixie? Extra volume is a must for shorter strands. Saturate roots with Aussie Ausome Volume Spray Gel to achieve maximum height.

86th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsKate Hudson looked divine while taking to the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars in Atelier Versace on Sunday.

Inspired by both Veronica Lake and Jerry Hall, celeb hairstylist Chris McMillan created a gorgeous, 1940s look. He started with using Living Proof’s Prime Style Extender to seal Kate’s hair and protect it from frizzing in the rain. “[It] was our most important tool for creating a look that would last the whole night.”

He applied this to wet hair and began blow-drying it with a round brush. He gave Kate a deep side part for “a touch of glamour” and used the Living Proof Satin Hair Serum just on the ends for sheen.

To give the ends more bounce, he used a 1-inch curling iron throughout and then brushed through with the Mason Pearson Boar Bristle Brush.

To keep it all together, he spritzed Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray all over.
