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: Camila Alves’ ‘Interstellar’ New York Premiere Makeup

'Interstellar' New York PremiereCelebrity makeup artist Julie Harris worked with Camila Alves for the premiere of ‘Interstellar’ on Monday (November 3) in New York City.

Julie explains the beauty inspiration behind her gorgeous date night makeup: “I was inspired by Camila’s beautiful Marchesa dress. I wanted to give the makeup a feeling of the 20s but still modern by emphasizing the eyes, giving them a sexy sultry look. I also knew I wanted to go with a bordeaux stained lip.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Julie prepped Camila’s gorgeous skin with Yon-Ka Lotion for sensitive skin followed by La Mer Hydrating Lotion and Tata Harper Eye Creme. She blended a light coat of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 8.5 with a Beautyblender. She highlighted under the eyes with Korres Anti-Aging Concealer.

To bring out her beautiful dark eyes, Julie began by applying Jouer Long Wear Eye Brightening Primer and Jouer Creme Mousse Eyeshadow in Twilight on the lids. Then she shaded the crease with NARS Duo 413 BLKR (black with red pearls and shimmer amethyst) and rimmed the waterline with Urban Decay Waterproof All Night Long Black Liner. She finished by sweeping the black with red pearls along the lower lash line with a small fluff brush to set the liner.

Julie shaded Camila’s cheekbones with Anastasia Contour Powder and blended Jouer Blush along the cheeks. She also dusted on a light coat of Urban Decay Naked Powder in Medium to Dark.

She finished by applying NARS Audacious Lipstick in Liv with her finger to give her a stain of bordeaux colour, followed by a hint of BY TERRY Baume De Rose.

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.
