GONE RED!
February 15, 2018

Julianne Hough has traded in her well-known blonde locks for something decidedly more RED. The star shared her mane change on Instagram… “I have never felt more like ME than I do right now!! I have always felt like a red head my whole life, even to the point that I’ve thought that my future daughter would 100% be a red head! I’ve seriously talked about doing this for 6 years, ask anyone who knows me…and now that I’m on this new journey, exploring and finding out who I truly am, I said screw it! I feel more feminine and alive and I love it!”

We love it, too!

ABFTTB
February 12, 2018

After a weather delay, this week will be skier Mikaela Shiffrin’s debut at the Olympic games. You may have seen her commercial on TV, with the ABFTTB tagline: Always Be Faster Than The Boys. The story behind it? Mikaela shared in an interview with NBC Olympics…

“I have the acronym A.B.F.T.T.B. on my helmet. I used to make people try to guess what it means, but it stands for ‘Always Be Faster Than The Boys.’ [Three-time U.S. Winter Olympian] Heidi Voelker signed a poster for me when I was really little and she wrote that. She said, ‘Dream big, Mikaela, and always be faster than the boys.’ I always saw that poster in our basement — our basement was like the playroom — and would be like, ‘Always be faster than the boys. OK, Heidi, I will.’

My dad was like, ‘You should write that on your skis.’ And so we started to do that. Now I have somebody doing my skis for me and they are very particular about what they write on my skis, so they won’t let me write that on them. But I can paint my helmet with the words on it. It’s just inspiring. At this point it’s almost more of a ritual or just something that’s sentimental for me.”

We’re rooting for Mikaela–and revealing one of her mane secrets she revealed on Instagram: “Secret: I love doing hair, and getting my hair done.”

Go, Mikaela!

Friday Cuteness

Jessie J! Looking oh-so-cute with her baby bob curled and twirled into pretty spirals that are fluffed out and tousled to absolute perfection. We love how a few more curls are making their way into styling (as opposed to just loose waves, which we also adore, but…). Hoping to see more of it! Happy Friday!

TURN UP THE VOLUME
February 1, 2018

If you’re New Years resolution involved growing the best hair of your life then the experts at Viviscal are here to help. These five steps with help your achieve thicker-looking hair in 10 days or less!

  1. Choose The Right Shampoo and Conditioner

Opt for a shampoo and conditioner formulated for thinning hair. You want something that cleanses without weighing hair down.

  1. Blow-Dry Better

For a voluminous blow-out try adding a dime size amount of mousse to damp hair, mist a heat protectant and then blow-dry upside down.

  1. Switch-Up Your Snip

Achieving a fuller-looking hair is as easy as an haute new hair cut. If your tresses are fine try a shoulder length or shorter cut. Without the length to weight hair down strands will appear thicker.

  1. Roll It Out

Get long-lasting volume and texture with rollers. With so many types and sizes of rollers there is something for every hair type and length.

  1. Play With Your Part

Changing the side of your part will instantly lift your hair. Strands can become “trained” to fall one way loose a bit of liveliness in the process.

Winter. The outdoor weather and hot indoor air really takes it’s toll on our manes. But now, thanks to Aunt Jackie’s Curls And Coils, those with curly hair can get some great hydrating moisture! “The key is moisture,” says Crystal Styles, Assistant Director of Marketing at Aunt Jackie’s Curls and Coils and a Certified Trichologist. “When your hair is drier it will be more likely to attract static. Using moisture-replenishing products like Aunt Jackie’s Coconut Crème Recipes Coco Wash Coconut Milk Conditioning Cleanser along with Coco Repair Coconut Crème Deep Conditioner will help greatly reduce static.”

For more on keeping those waves, curls and spirals in perfect condition, pick up our new issue and read all about it!

Details, Details
January 23, 2018

How do you turn a sort-of fishtail braid into something a little more spectacular? It’s in the details! In this case, hairstylist Adir Abergel twisted silver thread around strands in Saiorse Ronan’s hair for a little sparkle power. He also wrapped a length of hair around the base of the braid to cover the elastic holding it. The result is chic and pretty and all-around fabulous.

Giuliana’s Hot Ponytail How-To
January 14, 2018

E! Entertainment host Giuliana Rancic looked gorgeous on the red carpet with her extravagant long ponytail, which was created by Matrix Artistic Director and Celebrity Stylist Nick Stenson, using Matrix Style Link and Biolage R.A.W. “We wanted to do something that showed off the lines of her dress and didn’t compete with it,” shares Stenson. “The shape of the pony complimented the back of her dress perfectly.”

Here’s the step-by-step…

♦♦ On damp hair, apply Matrix Style Link Blowout Skinny Queen Smoothing Blowout Cream and blow-dry using a boar bristle round brush. Spray scalp area with Style Link Play Back Dry Shampoo to build volume and texture.

♦♦ Create a section at the top/front of the head and backcomb for volume. Gently gather hair at the crown and secure with pins to reinforce height. Spray with Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray to hold in place.

♦♦ Gather remaining hair into a ponytail and secure with a clear elastic. Take a strand from the ponytail, loop it around the elastic, and secure with pins. Knot the top half of the ponytail and secure with a clear elastic.

♦♦ Loosen strands from the knots to create a deconstructed, loose effect.

♦♦ Finish the look by spraying hair with Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray.
