Glee Gals Styles at SAG Awards


Did you enjoy watching the SAG red carpert last night? The best part is the celebrity styles! Suave Professionals Celebrity Sytlists styled both Dianna Agron and Jenna Ushkowitz. Read on to get their styles!

To recreate Dianna Agron’s chic updo at home, follow these simple tips from Jenny Cho, Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist, and get your glam on:

“We wanted to merge the vintage and modern look together by doing a double knot in the back and sweeping the bangs to one side so you get a glimpse of the effortlessly undone ‘do from every angle” says Jenny Cho, Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist.


1. Add texture to hair by adding Suave Professionals Volumizing Mousse to damp hair. You can be generous with the amount of product – in this case, more is better. Blow dry hair with fingers and a medium size round brush to smooth out the ends. Spray Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo all over, concentrating on the roots for extra texture.

2. Side part the hair with a tail comb and tease crown for a little extra volume. Apply Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream to hands and split the hair down the center into two sections. Tie a knot as if you're tying a bow and secure the first knot with bobby pins and u-pins. Make another knot right under the first, so it's double knotted, and secure with more pins. Leave the ends out to give it the undone finish.

3. Sculpt the front by adding more anti-frizz cream and mold the fringe to frame the face. Leave a piece out on one side to add a touch of looseness.

4. Finish the look with Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Lightweight Hold Hairspray for a natural, movable finish.





Theodore Leaf, Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist, worked his magic on Jenna Ushkowitz, creating an elegant updo. Follow his tips to make Jenna’s look your own:

“We wanted to pull Jenna’s hair back to showcase her show stopping necklace! We decided on an elegant updo with lots of volume and face-framing pieces to give it a soft texture” says Theodore Leaf, Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist.

1. To achieve this soft beautiful texture, start with dry hair and an off center part, then section starting at the bottom.

2. Next take a two-inch section of hair and spray with Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Extra Hold Hairspray. Using a small 1 inch flatiron, wrap the hair around the iron starting midway down the hair, creating a wave. Finish by flat ironing the ends straight to keep the look natural.

3. Spray the roots at the crown with hairspray and tease to create a cushion. Take a small section and smooth over the cushion for a perfect shape.

4. Finally, take several large bobby pins and pin the ends up to the base to create the soft shape, criss-crossing the bobby pins to secure. Take a few pieces of hair out to frame the face and apply a mist of hairspray to keep everything in place.

All Suave Professionals products mentioned are MSRP $1.92-$3.99 (depending on size). Suave Professionals products are available at drugstores, mass merchandisers and supermarkets nationwide. Please let me know if you’d images of any of the above mentioned products.

Avon Voice's Talent Search


NEW YORK – January 27, 2010 – Thirty seconds is all it takes to potentially make it big and gain exposure to audiences from more than 60 countries and be professionally judged by music-industry greats like Fergie, six-time Grammy award winner; legendary songwriter, Diane Warren; Natasha Bedingfield, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter; Lea Salonga, Filipina singer and actress and Russian sensation, Valeriya, among others.

Be empowered! Avon Voices is inviting people everywhere to join a worldwide movement that unites and inspires through the universal language of music. Women around the world are making their voices count by telling their stories, sharing their dreams, and showcasing their talents at www.avonvoices.com.

It’s easier than you think. Through February 13, 2011, women can sing out on a 30-second video clip from the approved song list at www.avonvoices.com and be a part of a global movement. Talented finalists of the year-long program will travel to exciting destinations such as Hong Kong, Hollywood, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Paris and Nashville. With that comes professional coaching, Avon makeovers and studio time for performance videos.

Avon Voices is the company’s first-ever global online singing talent search for women and songwriting competition for men and women in celebration of its 125th Anniversary. At the conclusion of the program, Diane Warren will be providing an anthem to be recorded by up to 10 global finalists alongside many of Avon Voices celebrity judges. The anthem will debut live at the Avon Foundation for Women Annual Awards Gala, scheduled for Fall 2011 in New York City.

This moving anthem, as well as other Avon Voices recordings, will be available for purchase in certain countries, and a percentage of your purchase will help advance the Avon Foundation for Women’s global campaign to end violence against women and girls. Find out more about music purchases at www.avonvoices.com. To date, Avon global philanthropy has raised and awarded more than $30 million directed to domestic and gender violence awareness, education, direct services and prevention programs.
