Suave Professionals Shines on the Red Carpet with Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld, "Best Supporting Actress" nominee for "True Grit," turned to Jenny Cho, Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist for her elegant updo.

"I was so inspired by her pale pink Marchesa dress and the dripping beads. I wanted to create a hairstyle that was a cross between Audrey Hepburn and a ballerina. Pulling Hailee's hair up really showed off her neck and having the hair show from the front gave the illusion of elongating her like a ballerina. The headband made the look young and age appropriate," says Jenny Cho, Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist.

Follow Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist, Jenny Cho's tips to make this look your own:

1. Layer Suave Professionals Heat Protection Spray (to protect hair from heat) and Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream to damp hair and blow dry with a Mason Pearson brush to smooth hair and help fight any unwanted frizz and flyways.

2. Make a high ponytail using a brush to smooth as you go.

3. Spit the ponytail into two. Spray Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Lightweight Hold Hairspray to the two sections and tie a knot as if you're making a bow. Keep knotting until you run out of hair. Secure with bobby pins and "U" shaped pins.

4. Spray hairspray to a toothbrush and brush back any flyaways to define and polish the look. Mist entire look with hairspray and spritz Suave Professionals Vibrant Shine Spray to finish the look.

5. For an added bit of glam, add a glittery headband.
All Suave Professionals products mentioned are MSRP $2.69 - $2.99. Suave Professionals products are available at drugstores, mass merchandisers and supermarkets natiowide. Please let me know if you’d images of any of the above mentioned products.


Mandy Moore Wears NARS at the Oscars



NARS worked with celebrity makeup artist Kayleen McAdams to create the look for Tangled’s Mandy Moore who stepped out both on the red carpet and on stage at tonight’s Academy Awards. Please see below for details regarding each look.


ON THE RED CARPET: “We wanted her makeup to have a strong pop,” said Kayleen about Mandy’s red carpet lips. “I was so inspired by all the coral and orange lips on the runway for spring so I did a tangerine version on the lips and cheeks." Below are the NARS products that Kayleen used to create Mandy’s red-carpet arrivals look:

· FACE

o PRO-PRIME Pore Refining Primer (NEW for Spring 2011; exclusively available at Sephora)

o Sheer Matte Foundation

o Copacabana Illuminator (NEW for Spring 2011!)

· EYES

o PRO-PRIME Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

o Corfu Cream Eyeshadow

o Coconut Grove Single Eyeshadow

o Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara

· LIPS

o Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil


ON STAGE: “We had to balance out her look because of the dress which we did by toning down the lip from a bright orange, to a flushed peach,” said Kayleen about the change. Keeping Mandy’s base the same, Kayleen used the following products:

· FACE, NECK, & DÉCOLLETÉ

o Copacabana Illuminator

· EYES

o Silk Road Duo Eyeshadow

o Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil

o Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara

· LIPS

o Hopi Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil (NEW for Spring 2011!)
