Get The Look: Jessica’s Alba’s Glamorous Rocker Hair

Premiere Of Dimension Films' "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" - Red CarpetCelebrity hairstylist Davy Newkirk worked with Jessica Alba for the LA premiere of ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’.

“Jessica’s gorgeous, form-fitting, electric-blue Zac Posen dress had a classic silhouette, so I thought that glamorous rocker hair would be a great contrast” said Davy.

Here’s how to get the look.

Davy began by prepping Jessica’s wet hair with Honest Conditioning Mist, then sprayed Alterna Bamboo Beach Summer Ocean Waves Tousled Texture Spray throughout the hair and rough-dried it, utilizing the natural texture.

He then used a large round brush around her face and then created a centre part.

Next, he lightly brushed the hair with a Mason Pearson Brush and took a small amount of Alterna Bamboo Form Sculpting Clay and ran it through random pieces for added texture.

The look was finished off with a few sprays of Alterna Bamboo Anti-Humidity Spray.

Hair Trend Spotting: Messy Braided Ponytails

Hair Trend Spotting Messy Braided Ponytails

Keeping your locks under control in the humid weather has never been easy; however, Nina Dobrev, Lucy Hale and Shay Mitchell found the perfect solution for their red carpet looks at the Teen Choice Awards: braided ponytails.

Last year braids were worn as tight and as sleek as possible, whereas this spring braids are going to be the complete opposite as this trend is more laidback and relaxed, reliving the romantic medieval style.

Opting for long, chunky, messy and romantic braids shows a much more youthful approach to a classic updo.

Other stars who have championed the messy, romantic braid this year, during Cannes, include Blake Lively and Eva Longoria.

Here’s how to create the look.

Create a side part and add texture with a wide-barrel curling iron, making sure to curl from the top. Lightly tease hair at the crown, then split your hair into two sections.

Keeping your hair on the side of the part, begin to braid by pulling a bit of hair from the outside of one section over to the centre of the other section, then repeat for the other side and continue until your braid is the desired length.

Once you’ve reached the bottom, fasten the braid with an elastic. Loosen the braid by lightly tugging on outer sections throughout.

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.
