Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Hair Trend Spotting Autumn Blonde 2

Just like the summer heat and sun make light, bright blonde seem apropos, so does the cool of fall make blondes long for a darker shade.

Blake Lively recently took her beachy blonde to a deeper golden hue, and Kate Bosworth–a color chameleon who we regularly see switch from blonde to brunette–went from her recent blonde ombré to a creamy honey blonde.

And it seems quite a few brunettes are trying to meet the blondes in the middle.

Sofia Vargara and Kim Kardashian seem to be leading the pack, and Sarah Hyland just wowed on the red carpet with extremely blondes ends on her brunette locks.

After seven days of high fashion and stunning beauty, we’ve compiled a list of the spring beauty trends from New York Fashion Week that we think celebrities will be rocking on the red carpet soon.

Nails: The ‘Floating Moon’ Mani
Nail art isn’t going anywhere, but it is taking a minimalistic turn for spring. At Milly by Michelle, butterLONDON manicurist Katie Jane Hughes painted just the moon of the fingernails in the shade Cotton Buds and then filled in the rest of the nail with a nude shade.

Eyes: The Rose Gold Smokey Eye
If you don’t know that rose gold is all the rage, then you definitely haven’t been paying attention! And at Jason Wu, the shade was used to create a thoroughly modern smokey eye. Makeup artist Diane Kendal used the shimmery caramel colour from Lancome Color Design Eye Brightening All-in-One 5 Pan Shadow & Liner Palette in Bronze Amour to lay a lovely bronze cat-eye shape base, and then applied rose gold coloured glitter over the top. This would be such a high impact look at the Academy Awards in March!

Lips: Vibrant violet
This past spring and summer, stars had lots of fun with bright pink and even orange lips, and next up, they’ll be experimenting with violet. At Prabal Gurung, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury created an eye-catching violet lip by mixing M.A.C. Lipmix in white and burgundy for her own custom shade. Emma Rossum loves to play with colour, so I’d love to see her try this out first.

Hair: Sleek Ponytails
It may not be a new trend, but the perfectly sleek ponytail, loved by supermodels and actresses alike, is going to be a huge trend this spring. The look was seen on the runways of designers such as Victoria Beckham, Altuzarra and Jason Wu. At Altuzarra, hairstylist Odile Gilbert began by making a center part and then blow-drying the hair with Kérastase Mousse Bouffante and sealing the ends with Kérastase Fibre Architecte. The hair was then pulled back into a low, sleek ponytail and finished with Kérastase Laque Dentelle.

Beyonce Knowles Debuts New Do In Miami

As the world knows, Beyonce Knowles cut her hair last week into a cropped pixie ‘do which is the shortest style we’ve ever seen her rock, freeing herself from the trademark long blonde locks we have associated her with for so long.

The singer is due to headline V Festival in Chelmsford and Staffordshire in England this weekend, so I was excited to see how she would adapt her style to her new look.

So colour me disappointed when the first pictures of Beyonce having lunch in Miami yesterday following the big reveal see the star sporting a longer asymmetrical bob, much like the Pob (the Posh bob).

Such a hoopla was made about the cut – even her hairstylist sent out a press release about the crop – so why make all that noise if the first thing you are going to do is add hair extensions?

I will be interested to see how the look evolves.

Pixie Cut Trend

When Beyonce chopped off her hair last week, it was one of the most shocking celebrity haircuts in quite a while. In all honesty, the cut was likely a combination of removing extensions and cutting some hair, but the results were surprisingly (Sasha) Fierce, and I’m excited to see Queen Bey rock her shorter ‘do–especially since many people associate her entire persona with her gorgeous long hair.

And right on Mrs. Carter’s heels was another dramatic hair change: Model Coca Rocha cut her mid-length tresses into a edgy cut–super short around the sides with a bit more length on the top. Keeping the extra length on the top will allow for lots of variety at photoshoots (as Coco has already revealed via Instagram), and the shorter length shows off the model’s striking bone structure far more than her previous look.

By cutting off their locks, these two ladies have joined the ranks of stars who have dared to go super short.

Robin Wright has been rocking a pixie for about a year now, and she showed off her low maintenance crop once again this week on the red carpet.

And Ginnifer Goodwin, who has one of the most famous (and long-lasting) pixie cuts in Hollywood loves her short cut so much that she actually writes it into her filming contracts–she gets to keep the hair short and wear wigs for roles!

To keep your own pixie looking chic day after day, use Short Sexy Hair Quick Change Shaping Balm to create a style that is easily reactivated the next day, and to shape your hair and hold it in place, Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Dry Sculpting Pomade is a great option. If it’s moisture and shine you want, try Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey.

So what do you think? Are all these ladies rocking the short hair, or do you prefer them with longer locks?

Get the Look Rose Byrne’s Textured Summer Updo

Rose Bryne walked the red carpet for the ‘Blue Jasmine’ LA premiere looking the very picture of summer. So we went to her hairstylist Richard Marin and got the full details on how to recreate the look on your own hair.

First, Marin sprayed Rose’s wet hair with L’anza Healing Smooth Thermal Defense Heat Styler and then blow dryed it with a Remington TIStudio Silk Ceramic Ionic AC Professional Hair Dryer to ensure her hair was protected from the heat and frizz-free.

Next, Marin took a ¾ inch curling iron and curled every other section of Rose’s hair–by using her own texture along with the curled waves, Marin had a multi-textured look to work with.

Then, Marin took Oribe Rough Luxury Molding Wax and ran it through the hair to break up the curls and blend the textures together.

Next, he dragged the hair into a high ponytail and fastened it at the crown with a Blax hair band. Next, he bobby pinned the hair into a loose bun, and finally, finished the look by spraying Rene Furterer Huile D’été Protectrice Protective Summer Oil to add shine, tame flyaways and give a carefree summer effect.
