Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Premiere Of Dimension Films' "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" - Red CarpetCelebrity hairstylist Davy Newkirk worked with Jessica Alba for the LA premiere of ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’.

“Jessica’s gorgeous, form-fitting, electric-blue Zac Posen dress had a classic silhouette, so I thought that glamorous rocker hair would be a great contrast” said Davy.

Here’s how to get the look.

Davy began by prepping Jessica’s wet hair with Honest Conditioning Mist, then sprayed Alterna Bamboo Beach Summer Ocean Waves Tousled Texture Spray throughout the hair and rough-dried it, utilizing the natural texture.

He then used a large round brush around her face and then created a centre part.

Next, he lightly brushed the hair with a Mason Pearson Brush and took a small amount of Alterna Bamboo Form Sculpting Clay and ran it through random pieces for added texture.

The look was finished off with a few sprays of Alterna Bamboo Anti-Humidity Spray.

Hair Trend Spotting Messy Braided Ponytails

Keeping your locks under control in the humid weather has never been easy; however, Nina Dobrev, Lucy Hale and Shay Mitchell found the perfect solution for their red carpet looks at the Teen Choice Awards: braided ponytails.

Last year braids were worn as tight and as sleek as possible, whereas this spring braids are going to be the complete opposite as this trend is more laidback and relaxed, reliving the romantic medieval style.

Opting for long, chunky, messy and romantic braids shows a much more youthful approach to a classic updo.

Other stars who have championed the messy, romantic braid this year, during Cannes, include Blake Lively and Eva Longoria.

Here’s how to create the look.

Create a side part and add texture with a wide-barrel curling iron, making sure to curl from the top. Lightly tease hair at the crown, then split your hair into two sections.

Keeping your hair on the side of the part, begin to braid by pulling a bit of hair from the outside of one section over to the centre of the other section, then repeat for the other side and continue until your braid is the desired length.

Once you’ve reached the bottom, fasten the braid with an elastic. Loosen the braid by lightly tugging on outer sections throughout.

FOX's 2014 Teen Choice Awards - ArrivalsCelebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell worked with Chloe Grace Moretz for the 2014 Teen Choice Awards.

“We wanted to create effortless, messy, bed-head texture for Chloe’s Valentino look at the Teen Choice Awards”, said Gregory.

Here’s how to get Chloe’s look.

He first blew out Chloe’s hair with a ceramic brush and then parted and sectioned the hair in half. Spraying each section with Kevin Murphy Damage Manager, he then twisted the hair away from her face, holding the ends and hitting the twists with diffused heat from a Harry Josh Blow Dryer and Hot Sock attachment.

After cooling, he brushed out with his fingers and used a 1.25″ iron to curl in the opposite direction at random. He then loosened the waves more by pulling down the ends with his hands and hitting them with the diffused heat again for a more lived-in look.

Next, he sprayed her hair with Klorane Dry Shampoo for dry, messy texture, finishing with Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel through the ends and Kerastase Laque Couture Hairspray for hold.

Beauty Trend Spotting Sleek Ponytails2

Many celebs are making a usually casual hairstyle red carpet worthy by slicking strands back to perfection. Pulling your hair back is an easy go-to, but these tips will take your look to the next level. Take note from Jennifer Lopez, Holland Roden, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Marano who are each showing us how it’s done.

Celebrity hair and makeup artist, Valerie Noble, shared her favorite tips to achieving a polished pony in a few easy steps. For Vanessa’s hair, Noble started with Redken Glass 01 Smoothing Anti Frizz Serum. A product like this is crucial to the style as it not only keeps frizz at bay for those with curlier textures, it will also tame flyaways.

Next, flat iron hair bone straight. Smoothing out every curl is key to creating a sleek end product. Opt for a small 1 inch iron and focus on the roots and slightly bend ends.

Once hair is straight gather all pieces. Noble says to, “brush all the hair up, just below the crown.” Location, location, location, is very important for today’s it ponytail. Placing too high can easily turn ‘80’s, so we recommend a mid to lower placement. Gather strands using Hair Bungees. Noble used them for Vanessa’s thick hair. Hair Bungees are perfect for thick hair and give more control over desired tightness. And if your ponytail isn’t as thick as you’d like, try adding clip-in extensions.

Lastly, you’ll want to secure your work with both Redken Outshine 01 Anti-Frizz Polishing Milk and Redken’s Quick Dry 18 Instant Finishing Spray. They not only holds hair, providing long lasting results, both will also add a healthy shine to your finished look.

"Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" Press Line - Comic-Con International 2014Celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora worked with Jessica Alba for the ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ press line during Comic-Con International 2014 this weekend.

Renato said “When I saw Jessica’s outfit, I decided to do something modern, funky, and a little bit sexy. I also wanted to create a hairstyle that was easy for her to manage throughout the day.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Starting with wet hair, Renato created a part beginning at the top of her head, all the way down to the nape of her neck. On the left side, he sprayed John Frieda Spiral Style Spray Gel and created a flat braid (corn row) down this side from the front to the back of her head.

He made sure the braid ended underneath the loose hair from the right side and secured the end of the braid with a small rubber band.

Next, he applied Kerastase Résistance Spray Volumactive Volumizing Hair Spray to the right side of Jessica’s hair and blew it dry using a T3 Hair Dryer and a YS Park Round Brush.

He blew the hair forward in the front to give it volume and that cool side-swept look.

To finish, he ran through the hair with a T3 Flat Iron to give it that extra sleekness.

First we will discover how Beau created her makeup, especially those smouldering eyes.

Beau began by applying Chanel Sublimage Eye Creme and Tammy Fender Moisturizer.

On Odeya’s cheeks, he applied NARS Blush in Deep Throat.

Cervando whipped those long brunette tresses into perfect shape.

He began by wetting Odeya’s hair and applying Bumble and Bumble Straight Blow Dry Cream from root to tip, combing through to distribute evenly. He further applied Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Protection Oil midway through the hair to the ends to add shine and flexibility.

Then, he started blow drying the hair starting with the front and sides using a medium-sized Ibiza Round Brush to smooth it out. Then he worked his way to the back and went through all of the hair once again with a Mason Pearson Flat Brush to create a straighter look.

Next, he used a Harry Josh Flat Iron, working his way from the bottom to the top of the hair for shine control and a sleek finish.

He sprayed Kevin Murphy Fresh Hair Dry Shampoo through the hair to suck up any oil and give the hair texture, and also sprayed Serge Normant Meta Sheer Dry Finishing Spray through the hair to keep it manageable.

Phyto Matte Texturizing Paste was added on the top and around the hairline to tame flyways and shape the hair around the face.

For the finishing touch, he sprayed the hair with Frederic Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray to give shine and hold the hair in place.
