Backstage with Avon - Get the Look!


Get the hot look that Avon hair stylist Allen Ruiz created for the Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 New York Fashion Week show.

The inspiration for the look was a remake of 80's style. Allen created the fresh, young wispy look, that mirrors Charlotte Ronson's collection, and the look gives off the "just walked out of dance class at Julliard" vibe.

Allen loves the look because he says,
"Spring is all about wearing your hair up and away from your face. Radiate confidence and positive energy by styling your bun so it looks finished, yet slightly disheveled. Wearing your hair up in a bun creates a youthful, fresh look that is easy-to-achieve!"

Step 1: Prep the hair from root to tip with Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray to enhance natural shine and create volume.

Step 2
: Using the Advance Techniques Paddle Brush and hair dryer, distribute the Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray by sectioning off the hair and blow-drying to ensure that there is a natural, soft texture.

Step 3
: Next, gather the hair tight to form a ponytail at the back crown of the head and secure with a ponytail holder keeping all sides flat.

Step 4
: Holding hair at the base of the ponytail, twist the hair firmly in one direction to form a kink in to a spiral. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 5
: On the sides, using the little hairs “muse” the wispy hairs to play up the natural texture.

Step 6: Lightly spray Advance Techniques Hair Spray to complete the style and hold in place.

MAC DSquared²

This collection brings us to the Ziegfeld Follies by way of Grey Gardens, a bit disheveled, a little Girl Interrupted, both dramatically hip and dangerously sexy.

It starts with a strong, sooty, blackest-ever wild-child eye… a new Greasepaint Stick also in blue and violet versions, and Pro Gloss to create it. Neutral and perfected skin will get more drama with highlighting and low lighting from Sculpt and Shape Powders and the 165 TaperedCheek/Highlight Brush all the better to achieve it. And finally, the totallynude Pro Lip Erase does its stuff, followed by a light Lipstick and Lip Conditioner to put the lilt and lift backin…. But the cynosure of this season’s scintillating collaboration is the daring, dramatic, slightly demented DSquared² eye. Have fun with it!

Giveaway Break - David Babaii Styling Products


For her red carpet look during the August 10, 2009 premiere of "Inglourious Basterds", celebrity hairdresser David Babaii created a naturally tousled look for Angelina Jolie's long tresses.




First, David applied Hair Polish to her entire mane followed by spraying Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier to the root area for lift and volume. Next, he parted hair into 3 sections (This is David's "key" signature tip). Beginning at the nape area, he used the David Babaii for WildAid Blow Dryer with the nozzle attachment for direct styling. To achieve her look, David blow dried her hair using a large round brush to smooth tresses straight and shiny. When done drying the entire head, he took large sections and wrapped hair around the same round brush. With the blow dryer and nozzle in hand, blow an additional blast of hot air for 10 seconds and then hit the cool button for a burst of cool air: this sets the shape. Carefully release the section from the brush and continue until you have completed the whole head. To finish, spray Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray.
