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.

Lily Aldridge In Rag & Bone - Victoria's Secret's Annual 2014 'What Is Sexy List' Photocall

Lily Aldridge attended an event celebrating Victoria’s Secret’s annual 2014 ‘What Is Sexy? List’ held at a Victoria’s Secret Store in San Francisco, California on Tuesday (July 29).

For a Victoria’s Secret model at a photocall, some might say she’s a tad underdressed, wearing a Rag & Bone silk teal-blue and black layered top and Rag & Bone jeans.

I guess she didn’t want to follow the fitted dress code following her colleague before her.

Her refreshing look was styled with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and Jennifer Fisher jewels.

Chrissy Teigen In Saint Laurent & Stella McCartney - DuJour Magazine Cover Launch Party

DuJour Magazine and Fendi Timepieces held a party to celebrate Chrissy Teigen’s cover on Monday (July 28) in New York City.

The model left little to the imagination, wearing a sheer lace Saint Laurent blouse paired with a La Perla black bra, with a Stella McCartney jacquard midi-skirt addressing the balance.

Accessorized with a studded leather belt, Saint Laurent ‘Jane’ sandals with a gold chain detail, and a black clutch, she completed her look with wavy tresses.

As much as I do love the look, I’m finding it hard to get past the exposed bra; however, I want to give her a pass based on her Sports Illustrated swimsuit model credentials.

Are you feeling this look?

Taylor Swift In Novis NYC - Out In New York City

Taylor Swift was spotted heading home after a workout on Wednesday (July 30) in New York City, probably off to celebrate being recently listed by Forbes as the second-highest-paid artist in country music, just behind Toby Keith.

Looking runway ready, the singer wore yet another adorable dress, this time from the Novis NYC Spring 2014 collection consisting of a printed flared skirt and bralet with a delicate sheer white point d’esprit overlay.

Styled with a blue Bvlgari ‘I. Rossellini’ tote with an art-deco-inspired enamel clasp and a twist lock made from semi-precious stones, she completed her picture-perfect look with Christian Louboutin mirrored peep-toes and of course a lush red lip.

Methinks the guy behind her in the dark glasses is a bodyguard. After all, if I was taking a $3k bag to the gym, I would want someone protecting it while I’m working out.

Kristen Bell In Monique Lhuillier - 'Life Is Amazing' Lexus Short Films Series

Kristen Bell attended the 2nd annual ‘Life Is Amazing’ Lexus Short Films Series presented by The Weinstein Company and Lexus held at LA Live on Wednesday (July 30) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Monique Lhuillier Resort 2015 navy dress with a nude panel featuring a gathered detail at the back.

Nude Louboutin pumps and an Edie Parker ‘Jean’ black and nude pearl stripe clutch accessorized her look.

I love the unique design which allows her to cover her baby-bump without any fuss, plus I like the styling.

I’m not sure this will go down well with the majority, but I think she, who has been below par recently, manages to pull it off.
