Rosamund Pike's 2015 Oscars Look


photo credit: TPR Holdings
One of my favorite movies this year was Gone Girl. I read the book (couldn't put it down!) and LOVED the movie. I was excited to see Rosamund Pike looking super sexy and glamorous on the red carpet last night. 

Her hair was styled with Oscar Blandi products by Kylee Rae Heath. Here's the breakdown from Kylee:

"It was key to have it look easy and untried. We wanted to create tons of texture."

TO CREATE THE LOOK:

1.       Starting on damp hair I sprayed Oscar Blandi Protein Mist throughout the hair.

2.        I then applied Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Mousse and combed the product through. 

3.       Next, I blew her hair out creating volume and movement. Before using a Sultra 3/4 inch sized barrel and a 1inch sized marcel iron to create texture, I sprayed Oscar Blandi Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray

4.       Once the texture was in place, I used a comb to section from behind the left ear, over the head to the top of the right ear. 

5.       I pulled the back section into a ponytail. Then, looking in a mirror together, I pulled the front section back to meet the ponytail securing with bobby pins.

6.       I sprayed the look into place and twisted the ponytail into a bun and pinned it. Then finished the look with the Pronto Lacca Medium Hold Hairspray and applied the Polish Glossing Creme to the short hair of her undercut.  

Oscar Blandi products can be found at Ulta.com. Personally, I'm a huge fan of Oscar Blandi hairspray. It smells so good!




'Signature Straight' Hair Style Tutorial with John Frieda Frizz Ease


Finally - it's 80 degrees out! Well, technically not yet, but the forecast for metro Detroit today says 80 degrees, so I'm pretty excited. I'm a girl who loves the hot weather. I don't worry about humidity because I know I have the right hair products to ensure a good hair day no matter what the weather is!

Not just for the humid weather, but year round, I turn to John Frieda's Frizz Ease products to tame fly-aways and keep my hair from frizzing. One essential product for me is John Frieda's Straight Fixation styling cream. I use this daily to get my 'signature straight' hair style. Here are the steps I take to get this look:

Tools and products I use:
 - round brush 
 - clip(s)
 - comb
 - hair dryer 
 - flat iron
 - Straight Fixation styling cream
1 - Comb through clean hair with wide tooth comb and part your hair where it usually falls or off to the side. 
2 - Apply a dime size amount of Frizz Ease Straight Fixation to your hair and evenly distribute with a comb (use more or less depending on the thickness and length of hair)
3 - Divide your hair into sections with your clip(s) (I usually start with one side and section into 3 parts at a time)
4 - Use hair dryer and round brush to blow dry each section at a time. I use my brush to roll my hair straight out, away from my face, and then under, making sure the hair dryer stays pointed at the round brush and hair until the very end, so the ends are straight.
5 - After all the sections are done, I like to take the front chunk of my hair, on both sides of my part (maybe still a little damp), and blow dry it forward, and then re-part it. My hair dresser gave me this trick. It helps to give lift and body to the front portion of my hair, so it doesn't lay flat against my forehead. 
6 - When my hair is completely dry I go through the sections again (without clipping) with my flat iron. I don't use a very hot iron. I usually set my temperature to around 250-300 degrees. 
7 - Voila! My 'signature straight' hair style.

Kristen Stewart at Twilight Part 2 Premiere

Where are all of my Twilight fans at!? I read the entire series but I'm two movies behind. I plan on having a marathon movie night this weekend so I can go see the finale in theaters. 

The Twilight cast got spiffied up for the premiere, including the usual tom-boyish Kristen Stewart. I thought she looked stunning in her dress. It was see-thru, yes, but still had an elegance to it. I thought it gave her an 'elegant edge.' It could have been worse, she could have worn her Converse shoes...
Below is how you can get her Veronica Lake-inspired style with a modern, deconstructed twist, by Adir Abergal for Frederic Fekkai.

HOW TO:
  1. Begin by applying Fekkai COIFF Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel from roots to ends to create texture and memory.
  2. Next, hand-dry the hair until it is completely dry to enhance your natural texture and create volume before making a deep side part.
  3. After the part is created, take 1" sections of hair, spray them with Fekkai COIFF Sheer Hold Hairspray and curl them around a 1" barrel curling iron. Pin the curls in place and allow hair to cool. Continue this process around the entire head.
  4. Once you’ve finished curling your hair, gently brush out the curls with the Fekkai Classic Brush and apply Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream to the ends to create separation and give hair a high-shine effect.
  5. Add a modern twist and some edge to the style by slicking back one side of the hair and pinning it in place. Finish your style withFekkai COIFF Sheer Hold Hairspray to ensure for touchable hold. 
All products by Fekkai. Fekkai COIFF Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel ($25), Fekkai COIFF Sheer Hold Hair Spray ($23), Fekkai Classic Brush ($95) and Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream ($25). All products available at Fekkai.com, ULTA.com, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Paul Mitchell Event at Caru Salon


I was a lucky girl and was able to participate in a Glamour event at Caru Salon in Hoboken NJ.  Glamour partnered with Paul Mitchell to help launch their new lines: Curls and Blonde. Of course, I was in it for the Blonde line. I’m already a huge fan of Paul Mitchell styling products and color, so I was excited to learn more about the Blonde line.

All of the bloggers who attended received a complimentary blowout from one of Caru’s talented and trendy stylists. I was paired with Andrea and couldn’t have been happier. She did an awesome job with my hair! After a shampoo and mini scalp massage, I gave her free reign over my hair and she decided to curl it after giving me a volume blowout. I was so happy with the way this turned out. I’ve always wanted to be able to try the ‘beach waves’ look and she showed me how I can achieve it at home with a curling iron and Paul Mitchell Curl products. Even if you have straight hair, you can use Paul Mitchell Curls line to achieve this look!

Caru Salon is definitely designed for the working woman, which I love. It’s right off the PATH train so it’s very easy to get to. They are open until 10pm at night (love) and are all about creating a relaxing environment and pampering experience for their clients (double love).  

We parted with fun goody bags filled with Paul Mitchell products and a surprise gift card from Caru Salon. I have been faithfully using the sample of Paul Mitchell’s Forever Blonde Dramatic Repair before blow-drying my hair to help keep moisture in my color treated hair. An added benefit to all Paul Mitchell products is that they smell great too!

I would definitely visit Caru again for a haircut or highlights. The staff is super friendly and talented, and I love that they use Paul Mitchell products! Many thanks to Kim at Fashionably Petite for being the hostess with the most-ess!
