China Glaze Spring 2012 Electropop

I'm loving China Glaze's Spring line - Electropop. Two different sets will be out in Feburary, a Lights collection and a Brights collection. The pinks and purples in this collection are perfect for toes in the Spring/Summer. And I love that it comes with a glitter in the mix! 

L'Eau de ChloƩ fragrance

The latest edition to the Chloe Fragrance collection - L'Eau de Chloe, will be on counters mid-february. The print campaign will feature the beautiful French model Camille Rowe-Pourcheresse, who also starred in the Chloe signature fragrance campaign this past Fall. Has anyone smelled this yet? 

SAG Beauty - Hair by Wella

Emma Stone
Styled by Mara Roszak for Wella Professionals

“Emma’s dress was my inspiration. I wanted to create a smooth, polished up-do with a bit of a modern 50's feel.” – Says Mara Roszak of the hairstyle she created for Emma Stone at tonight’s Screen Actors Guild Awards®.

Step-by-Step Styling
1.       Part the hair to the side then apply Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier to wet hair and blow dry smooth
2.       Add a pump of Wella Professionals Mirror Polish to hands and apply lightly to hair, starting at the ends, to smooth out any fly aways
3.       Tease the crown of the hair to add a little height and pull into a mid-height ponytail
4.       Twist the ponytail and then wrap into a bun and secure with bobby pins
5.       Spray all over with Wella Professionals Stay Firm hairspray

Zoe Saldana
Styled by Mara Roszak for Wella Professionals

“Zoe’s dress was so inspiring. I wanted to create a "not too perfect" up-do by adding texture and movement to the hair, while keeping it modern and fresh.” – Says Mara Roszak of the hairstyle she created for Zoe Saldana at tonight’s Screen Actors Guild Awards®.

Step-by-Step Styling
1.       Apply Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse to wet hair and rough dry
2.       Then, using a 3/4" barrel curling iron, add waves to the hair by rotating the direction of the curl
3.       Once the whole head was waved, spray Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz on the hair to break up the wave and add texture
4.       Loosely pull the hair back into a low pony  and secured it with an elastic
5.       Then split the pony into two sections and braid them both, then wrap the braids into a bun and secure with bobby pins
6.       Once the hair is up, apply a dab of  Wella Professionals Bold Move styling paste to fingertips and define a few pieces around the face
7.       Spray all over with Wella Professionals Stay Firm finishing spray

SAG Beauty - Rose Byrne's Red Carpet Hair

Check out Rose Byrne's new look debut on the SAG Awards Red Carpet. Her favorite guy - John Frieda International Creative Consultant Harry Josh! 

Harry Josh says that her new look is "70's inspired with a modern twist. Think Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface meets a modern day Anna Wintour." 

Here is how Harry styled Rose's new 70's inpsired bob to go with her chic white Elie Saab jumpsuit for the red carpet:

Step 1 - Saturate the Roots with a Volumizer
"I needed to get a lot of lift at the roots. Without that, the look would just fall flat," says Harry. On wet hair, he applied tons of John Frieda Full Repair Root Lift Foam ($6.99) which not only gave him the weightless lift that he needed, but also helped to protect against damage caused by heat styling. 

Step 2 - Protect the Roots
Harry applied the Full Repair Perfect Ends Deep Infusion ($9.99) to smooth the ends and make sure they looked healthy and groomed since her new cut is so blunt. 

Step 3 - Blow Dry with a Round Brush
Section by section, Harry used a natural bristle brush and angled the blow dryer down to get maximum shine.

Step 4 - Place Velco Rollers at the Crown
Harry used the rollers to lock in the volume.

"It's the epitome of chic, just like Rose." - Harry Josh

Reiki-charged is a simple, safe and natural Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. g2 Organics co-founders - Marie & Cherie are both certified Reiki instructors & personally charge each product!

This nail polish remover is great if you don't want to expose your kids or pets to smelly nail polish remover, or if you want to give your daughter a manicure without using toxic removers to clean her nails.

More g2 Organic Fun Facts:
* This product only contains 5 ingredients (compared to a drugstore brand remover that contains an average of 14)
* It contains aloe vera and vitamin E to nourish the nails and cuticles, without drying the nails out.
* It's also non-toxic and safe for everyone including children
* Made with organic and natural ingredients so its environmentally friendly
