Get The Look: Felicity Jones’ Classic Hollywood Glam With A Punk Twist Do

JonesCelebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Felicity Jones for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ 2014 Governors Awards.

Cervando’s explains he’s beauty inspiration, “The inspiration for the look was Classic Hollywood glam with a punk twist.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He started on damp hair, prepping it first with Kérastase Resistance Volumactive Mousse distributed evenly through the hair. Then he applied Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray to the roots all over the head and rough dried the hair with a Harry Josh Pro Tools Pro Dryer 2000 until it was completely dry.

Then Cervando used an Ibiza Hair EX3 Medium Boar Bristle Brush and blew out and smoothed the hair beginning at the front of the head and around the face, continuing through the rest of the hair. After that he used a 1.5 inch T3 Tourmaline Curling Iron throughout to create loose textured waves. Once done, he sprayed Sachajuan Volume Powder through the hair to create volume and dry texture.

After this he sprayed Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray all over to create even more texture and separation. Once done, he parted the hair into a deep side part with the end of a bone-tail comb to create a severe part in the hair. Then he slicked back the hair on the left side of the head by using Osmo Clay Wax to hold the hair down in place. After he slicked it down he pulled the hair and wrapped it around the nape of the neck, adding black bobby pins to hold it securely into place, creating an asymmetrical look.

Once secure, he added a dime-sized amount of Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil and applied it to the slicked back area, creating sheen and a wet look. Once that was set he put the remaining loose hair in pin curls and let it set for about 10 minutes. He then took it down and brushed it with a Mason Pierson brush creating a gorgeous, loose wave. Lastly, he sprayed the hair with Sachajuan Super Strong Hairspray, creating hold and shine for a modern, finished ook.

Get The Look: Rashida Jones’ ‘Big Hero 6’ Premiere Braided Messy Topknot

Disney's "Big Hero 6" - Los Angeles Premiere - ArrivalsCelebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath worked with Rashida Jones for Disney’s ‘Big Hero 6’ premiere on Tuesday (November 4).

Kylee shares her beauty inspiration: “We were inspired by the high neck and coolness of her electric-blue pantsuit to create a braided messy topknot.”

Here’s how to get the look.

She started on damp hair, spraying Bumble and Bumble Tonic Lotion from the roots to the mid-shaft and Serge Normant Meta Lush Volumizer from the mid-shaft through the ends. She rough dried Rashida’s hair and then polished the ends and bangs with an Ibiza Round Brush.

Once the hair was dry, she sectioned off the front from near the top of one ear to the other. Using a fine-tooth comb and a light spray of R+Co Outer Space Hairspray, she pulled the hair up into a ponytail at the top of the section. Then she pulled the front section back and sprayed with more R+Co, adding it to the ponytail, leaving only the bangs out.

The trick to a perfect ponytail is pulling it up in sections.

She then broke the pony into five sections, braiding three and lightly teasing two. She wrapped each section around the base of the ponytail and pinned them into place, creating a braided messy topknot.

Once the hair was up, she round-brushed the bangs to fall to one side. To finish she sprayed the bangs and bun with Leonor Greyl Laque Souple for added hold and shine.

Get The Look: Kat Dennings amfAR LA Inspiration Gala Makeup

Kat Dennings amfar makeupCelebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell and celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson worked with Kat Dennings for the amfAR LA Inspiration Gala on Wednesday (October 29).


On his beauty inspiration Gregory said, “We decided on a high-shine wave set to complement Kat’s gown tonight.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On damp hair, he applied R+Co Chiffon Styling Mousse through the roots and lengths of the hair. He then blew it out with a ceramic round brush and pin curled each section, securing with clips. He then curled each section with a 1 inch curling iron and again pin curled to cool.

After hair was cooled, starting at the nape, he softly brushed out each section with a Mason Pearson Popular Brush. Once brushed all the way through, he sprayed Serge Normant Dry Oil through the lengths and brushed again until his reached his desired shape.

Finally, he pinned the waves where he wanted them and set the style with R+Co Outer Space Flexible Hairspray.

Sharing his beauty inspiration, Beau said “Kat really is a natural beauty, so I wanted to accentuate that. The inspiration for this look came from the beautiful colours in the skin from classical paintings. I wanted to heighten the beautiful skin colours I see naturally in Kat’s face and take them to a surreal level.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Her skin was kept matte using Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation on a flat brush. He used Cinema Secrets Concealer under the eyes and on any redness, and powdered the skin with La Mer Loose Powder.

Bobbi Brown Blush in Pretty Coral gave a soft natural flush to the cheek and sculpted the cheekbone and jawline using Surratt Blush in Grisaille to contour.

Her eyelids are naturally a really pretty peachy-brown, so he mixed two shades of blush from NARS (Silvana and Gina) and washed them (using a soft domed shadow brush) over her eyelids, blending them to slightly above the crease of her eyes to give a heightened sense of colour.

On her lips he applied Tom Ford Lipstick in Casablanca, blotted it, and then dusted on a tiny bit of loose powder to make it matte.

Get The Look: January Jones’ Effortless, Touchable Hair

Opening Of Restoration Hardware West Hollywood The Gallery On Melrose AvenueCelebrity hairstylist Clariss Rubenstein worked with January Jones for the opening of Restoration Hardware West Hollywood The Gallery on Wednesday (October 22).

Sharing her inspiration, Clariss said, “I wanted January’s hair to look effortless and touchable. Her hair is super healthy and shiny right now and I wanted to enhance that.”

Here’s how to get the look.

After blow-drying January’s hair with just a few sprays of Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray, Clariss used a one-inch-barrel curling iron and wrapped the hair in different directions so that it had movement and didn’t look too uniform.

To finish the look she used Unite Texturiza Spray, which I love (it’s a dry shampoo, a texturizer, and light hairspray all in one), at the roots only. She also added a few sprays of Oribe Shine Light Reflecting Spray to the ends.

Get The Look: Dianna Agron’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event Hair & Makeup

Dianna Agron - CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund EventCelebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell and celebrity hairstylist Christian Wood worked with Dianna Agron for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event on Tuesday.


Georgie explains her beauty inspiration: “For Dianna at the CFDA/Vogue event, I wanted a clean and effortless look that was modern.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Georgie started by prepping Dianna’s skin with IS Clinical Hydra Cool Serum and Orlane Super Moisturizing Light Cream.

Next she evened out Dianna’s skin with Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick. To give her skin a beautiful glow, she powdered with La Mer The Powder and then used Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette on the high points of her face to give her that perfectly illuminated skin.

On the apples of her cheeks, Georgie used Tom Ford Cheek Color in Frantic Pink.

On Dianna’s eyes, she washed over her lids with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette very lightly to create a glow, then applied two layers of YSL Faux Cils Mascara in Black and added individual Stilazzi Lashes for extra length and depth. She defined Dianna’s brows with Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Warm.

Finally, Georgie used NARS Lip Lacquer in Baby Doll for the perfect pout.

Christian explains his inspiration: “I wanted to give the vintage-feeling dress a modern, sleek, tougher edge. A slicked-back deep side part with a simple low twist at the back was what we decided on.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Dianna washed and conditioned her hair with Fekkai Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner. This gave a smooth, moistened base to the hair to make it malleable to work with.

While the hair was wet, Christian added a very generous amount of Oribe Gold Lust Serum throughout and used a tail comb to place the deep side part.

Next he used a Mason Pearson Brush to brush the hair as tightly as possible into a low ponytail and secured it with an elastic. He then twisted the ponytail into a knot at the nape of the neck and secured it with bobby pins to hold in place. Oribe Superfine Hairspray smoothed out any flyaways and gave the hair a subtle hold.

Lastly, he placed Fekkai Sheer Sculpt Gel on the tip of his finger and gently layered the product on the part and various other sections of the hair. This added a form of highlight that picked up under the light and gave a glossier, sleeker appearance.

Cervando shares his inspiration: “The inspiration was a young, fresh look for Odeya. Simple and beautiful.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He began by prepping her damp hair with Kerastase Volumactive Mousse, using a golf-ball-sized amount and distributing it evenly throughout the hair. Next he applied Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray throughout the roots.

Then he blow dried the hair, starting in the front of the head and working his way to the back, using an Ibiza Boar Bristle Brush and Harry Josh Blow-Dryer. He dried the hair so it was straight and smooth with a little movement.

Next he sectioned off the hair and began curling it with a T3 1.5 Inch Curling Iron, starting from the bottom of the head and working his way to the top, creating loose natural waves. He sprayed Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray through the hair, adding volume and texture, and used his fingers to comb out the curls into a more natural fashion. He also sprayed a bit of Sachajuan Super Strong Hairspray around the hairline and throughout the hairstyle to hold in place and add shine for a beautiful young, fresh look.

On the cheeks he used Chanel Creme Blush in a pinky-coral shade to add a touch of subtle colour.
