Get The Look: Chloe Grace Moretz’ Teen Choice Awards Effortless, Bed-Head Hair

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.

Hair Trend Spotting: Sleek Ponytails

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.

Get The Look: Jessica Alba’s Comic-Con Funky Modern Do

"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.

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.

Get The Look: Diane Kruger’s FOX All-Star Party Tousled Tresses

Fox Summer TCA All-Star Party - ArrivalsCelebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath created Diane Kruger’s tousled tresses for the FOX All-Star Party during the 2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.

She started by applying Kerastase Volumactive Mousse from roots to ends on damp hair, adding a small amount of Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum to the ends.

Then she combed the product through and created a straight middle part with a rat-tail comb before blowing the hair out with a Croc Eco Blow Dryer and an Ibiza round brush.

She then started in the front to create smoothness and shine in the front sections, lightly rough-drying the rest of the hair, tucking the front sections behind Diane’s ears.

The desired result was contrast – smooth on the top, moving into lots of texture.

She then sprayed the hair mid-shaft through ends with Leonor Greyl Voluforme Styling Spray.

Kylee created a textured bend from the top of the ear through the ends by alternating with the Enzo Milano Bi-Tube Curling Iron and a smoothing iron. She rocked the smoothing iron forward and backward to create a smoothed-out zigzag bend. The Enzo iron created a more exaggerated version of the same bend. In creating a texture like this, it is important to use different sizes of bend.

After spraying Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray from mid-shaft through ends and lightly teased the hair underneath for added volume, she finished the look by applying a small amount of Kevin Murphy Easy Rider for any flyaways and a light spray throughout the hair with Oribe Superfine Strong Hairspray.
