Get The Look: Emmy Rossum’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ Sleek Parisian Ponytail

Hammer Museum 12th Annual Gala In The Garden With Generous Support From Bottega Veneta

Celebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Emmy Rossum for the Hammer Museum’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ on Saturday.

Cervando shares his inspiration: “The inspiration for the look was a sleek Parisian ponytail.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He began by applying two pumps of Leonor Greyl Serum de Soie Sublimateur to slightly damp hair, distributing evenly throughout.

Next he blew the hair dry using a Harry Josh Blow Dryer and flat-ironed section by section, bottom to top with a Harry Josh Flat Iron. This left the hair shiny and very straight.

Then he sprayed Serge Normant Meta Sheer Dry Finishing Spray lightly throughout the hair to create extra shine and sleekness. After that he parted the hair in a deep side part and applied Osmo Clay Wax, running it through the hair. He then took a comb and combed through the hair, really making it hold together and stay close to the head. He pulled all the hair back to the nape, pinching it tight, and wrapped a bungee-cord hair tie around the hair very tightly, creating a low ponytail. Then he took a piece of the ponytail and wrapped it around the hair tie to cover and camouflage it.

Next he poured a nickel-sized amount of Shu Uemura Nourishing Protective Oil, rubbed it in his hands, then distributed it through the whole head from the top to the ponytail, which created major shine and a wet look. He finished off by spraying Frederic Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray for one last bit of hold and shine.

Get The Look: Kristen Stewart’s New Hair Cut

"Camp X-Ray" New York PremiereHair stylist Giannandrea worked with Kristen Stewart for the premiere of ‘Camp X-Ray’ on Monday.

When talking about the inspiration behind her new haircut, he said “I wanted to give Kristen a chic and effortlessly stylish new cut, something to perfectly reflect her personality. The proportions are extremely important with a short haircut. I wanted to preserve the femininity while still bringing an edge to the look, and using a combination of thinning shears and a razor allowed me to achieve this balance. And of course, we wanted to have fun with it!”

Here’s how he created the look.

He began by chopping away the back and the sides of the hair with a pair of thinning shears to help create a steep layered grading and proceeded to razor cut the whole top to give Kristen her edgy long pointed ends. This cutting technique is playful and softly shapes the neck and cheekbones.

After cutting, he applied Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer all over the roots to create a thick base texture. He blow-dried her hair with his hands to lift the roots and directed the front base roots forward without losing the base volume. After drying the hair, he then used Macadamia Professional Control Working Spray, sectioning her hair into small and medium sections and using an infrared flat iron on the ends.

Lastly, he took a dime-sized amount of Macadamia Professional Whipped Detailing Cream and, using his fingers, created a deep side zigzag part to swoop over, and then twisted each section to finesse the texture.

Get The Look: Kiernan Shipka’s Soft Wavy Tresses

Michael Kors Celebrates The Launch Of Claiborne Swanson Frank's "Young Hollywood" Portrait BookCelebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with Kiernan Shipka to achieve the soft wavy tresses she sported while attending Claiborne Swanson Frank’s ‘Young Hollywood’ book launch hosted by Michael Kors on Thursday.

Sharing her beauty inspiration, Bridget said “Kiernan’s look was inspired by her beautiful Michael Kors dress. We opted for soft waves and shine.”

Bridget started by applying Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumizing Mousse from roots to ends. Then she rough dried the hair until it was 85% dry and used a large round brush to smooth the hair until it was completely dry. For a quick and beautiful blow out, rough drying hair allows natural texture and volume to come out. Once you have a good foundation, using a round boar-bristle brush skinnies and smoothes the hair down and brings it together, which allows shine to come to the surface.

Next she sectioned out Kiernan’s bangs and used a large velcro roller, rolling the bangs back and away from the face for a swoopy soft bang effect, and secured with a duck-bill clip.

Using a 1.25 Inch T3 curling iron, she wrapped 1 inch sections of hair vertically, starting at the mid-shaft of each section and moving back towards the face, making sure to curl the ends. Once all the hair was set and cooled, she softened the waves by brushing them out. Then she used Kerastase Short Mania Semi-Matte Sculpting Paste and scrunched it into the hair for texture and light hold.

After brushing the bangs into place, Bridget finished the look with an all-over mist of Oribe Superfine Hairspray.

Get The Look: Jessica Alba’s Global Citizen Festival Hair & Makeup

2014 Global Citizen Festival In Central Park To End Extreme Poverty By 2030 - VIP LoungeCelebrity makeup artist Quinn Murphy and celebrity hairstylist Rebekah Forecast worked with Jessica Alba for the 2014 Global Citizen Festival on Saturday (27 September).

Makeup artist Quinn Murphy shared the inspiration behind Jessica’s look: “To complement Jessica’s black Edun dress, I focused her look around black eyeliner while keeping the rest of the makeup bronze and warm. It was 80 degrees in Central Park so a sun-kissed coral look was unseasonably appropriate.”

Here’s how to get the look.
After prepping her skin with moisturizer, Quinn used Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base to create a smooth surface and add lasting power to the makeup. After applying RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up in Shade 44, Quinn next applied Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #9 using a damp Beautyblender sponge.

Using the NARS Multiple in Vientiane, Quinn framed her face before applying the bronze cream on the edges of her face to create dimension – under the cheekbones, temples, and under the jawline.

Quinn applied the same NARS bronzer to the centre of her eyelids and blended it upward and out. Next, Estee Lauder Black Gel Eyeliner was applied along the top lash line, making the line thicker on the outer edges and giving it a flick for a cat-eye effect, before applying Armani Eyes to Kill Black Mascara on the top and bottom lashes.

Quinn then used NARS Powder Blush in Deep Throat on the apples of the cheeks before using NARS Powder Bronzer in Casino to subtly contour the cheekbones. It’s softer than a traditional taupe contour shade.

On her lips a sheer peachy-bronze lipstick that was Jessica’s own completed the look.

Rebekah Forecast also shared her inspiration: “My inspiration for Jessica’s hair was the music festival itself. Cool rock chic with a little bit of punk – hence the braid, giving the effect of a buzzed side. I also wanted a high pony to look young and effortless.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Rebekah began with wet hair, applying a volumizing spray at the roots to help create texture and volume. She blow dried the hair with a diffuser to keep the natural movement in the length and ends, but smoothed out the hairline.

Once the hair was dry, she sprayed the whole head with a small amount of dry shampoo to give a second-day feel. This also helps to get a good grip on the hair when pulling it into a high ponytail. She then used a brow mascara on the hair line to tame any flyaways.

Once the ponytail was secured, she sprayed a bit of thermal spray and used a flat iron to create irregular waves throughout the hair. The spray gave the hair great hold as she knew Jessica was going to be outside all day and touch ups would not be possible.

Get The Look: Rosamund Pike’s Modern, Cool ‘Gone Girl’ World Premiere Hair

Get The Look Rosamund Pike's Modern, Cool 'Gone Girl' World Premiere Hair

Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath worked with Rosamund Pike for the 52nd Annual New York Film Festival Opening Night Gala Presentation and World Premiere of ‘Gone Girl’ on Friday.

When explaining her beauty inspiration Kylee said, “We wanted a modern, cool look to go with Rosamund’s beautiful look.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Starting with damp hair, Kylee sprayed Serge Normant Styling Spray from roots through ends, creating a straight centre part, and blew dry the hair with her Eco Croc Blow Dryer, starting in the front to really set the part. Once the hair was dry she sectioned off the front sections to pin into place last.

Kylee divided the remaining hair into three horizontal sections and put each horizontal section into an individual ponytail, twisting and pinning the little ponytails into mini messy buns with Burman Matte Mini Bobby Pins. Then she took the pinned-away front sections and pulled them back, combing them smooth with a fine-tooth comb. She pinned each section, blending them in with the mini buns. The point was to have contrast – sleek in the front and a textured style in the back.

The look was finished with Leonor Greyl Light to Medium Hair Spray for shine and hold.
