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.

Get The Look: Nina Dobrev’s Let’s Be Cops’ LA Premiere Glow

Premiere Of Twentieth Century Fox's "Let's Be Cops" - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson worked with Nina Dobrev for the Los Angeles premiere of ‘Let’s Be Cops’ last week.

“Nina and I wanted to do something simple and fresh to complement her Zuhair Murad beaded dress”, said Beau.

Here’s how to get the look.

Because Nina was so tanned from her recent vacation to Bali, Beau used M.A.C. Face and Body Foundation in C5 to even her skin tone on her face and match it with her body.

He then used Cinema Secrets Concealer where needed for extra coverage and By Terry Touche Veloutee Pen under her eyes to cancel out any darkness.

Setting with Laura Mercier Brightening Powder under the eyes and La Mer Powder all over the face, he brought back a glow by spraying M.A.C. Fix+ on the sides of the face, avoiding the centre completely.

On her eyes he used a simple wash of the taupe shade from the Chanel Tissé Rivoli Shadow Quad, and L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Black.

On her cheeks, Beau used Hourglass Cosmetics Crème Bronzer and Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate to contour her cheekbones and jawline, enhancing what she naturally has.

Lips were kept simple with just a coat of NARS Larger Than Life Lipgloss in ‘Paris Follies’.

Get The Look: Taylor Schilling’s Simple, Flawless ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Panel Discussion Makeup

Taylor+Schilling+Orange+New+Black+Panel+Discussion+1jBUcvcdD2JlCelebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell worked with Taylor Schilling for Netflix’s ‘Orange is the New Black’ panel discussion.

She wanted Taylor’s makeup to be simple yet have a certain strength about it. So she kept her skin, cheeks and lips light, focusing on her eyes and brows.

Here’s how to get the look.

First she prepped Taylor’s skin with La Prairie ‘Platinum Rare’ Cellular Eye Cream and moisturized with Chanel Sublimage La Crème Texture Suprême.

Evening out her skin tone with Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup SPF 15, she then lightly powdered with La Mer ‘The Powder’.

She added a little colour to the cheeks using Tom Ford Beauty Cheek Color in ‘Love Lust’.

Georgie wanted Taylor’s brows to be really structured and groomed, so she used Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in ‘Taupe’, extending her brows slightly to really open up the eye and elongate the eye area.

On Taylor’s eyes she first applied Bobbi Brown eye shadow in ‘Bone’ all over the lid so she had a smooth even colour.

MAC Fluidline Eyeliner Gel in ‘Macroviolet’ was used to create a cat eye and then she went in with Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in ‘Amethyst’ to make it a deep rich plum, blending it up ever so slightly to get a smudged effect. She finished off the eye with one layer of YSL Faux Cils Mascara in ‘Black’ and one layer of YSL Faux Cils in ‘Deep Purple’.

Georgie finished off Taylor’s look with Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in ‘Satisfaction’.

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.
