Sophisticate's Daily Dose Of Style
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.

Healthy Hair Eating Habits
January 18, 2018

Getting healthier, stronger and longer hair never tasted so good! The experts at Viviscal suggest trying these eight yummy foods to boost your tresses glam power!

  • Salmon—and other oily fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help moisturize and add shine.
  • Greek Yogurt—is a good source of protein, which helps strands stay strong.
  • Oranges—and other citrus fruits like grapefruits and tangerines are an amazing source of vitamin C, which aids in hair structure and elasticity.

Beauty Changes Lives
January 15, 2018

The Beauty Changes Lives Foundation announced that the 2018 Legacy Award will posthumously honor Horst Rechelbacher (above), founder of Aveda and Intelligent Nutrients, on Sunday, April 29, 2018, at The Beauty Changes Lives Experience co-hosted by America’s Beauty Show and Pivot Point International.

With a mission to elevate, educate and empower, Beauty Changes Lives is uniting the industry and building awareness of the extraordinary career opportunities in the beauty, wellness and massage therapy industries. Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide is a media sponsor for this very worthwhile cause.

The event at the iconic Art Institute of Chicago will include an intimate Legacy Award dinner followed by a Runway Fashion Show that showcases sponsored NextGen teams and their mentors. Rechelbacher’s partner in life and business, Kiran Stordalen, and his daughter, Nicole Thomas-Rechelbacher, will accept the award honoring his contributions to the industry.

All proceeds benefit The Beauty Changes Lives Foundation, which has raised more than $5M in scholarships for aspiring beauty and wellness professionals.  “Our fund-raising Beauty Changes Lives Experience allows us all to pay forward by supporting the next generations in beauty,” notes Lynelle Lynch, president of the non-profit Beauty Changes Lives Foundation. “Honoring Horst is a privilege for the Foundation and in doing so we also honor the thousands of industry members who were touched by Horst, by his life’s work and his talent for encouraging success in others.”

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.

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s Eva Marcille looks phenomenal with her golden nutmeg curls. Eva’s gorgeous mane is parted on the side and curled into defined waves over her shoulders.

5 Hair Resolutions…
January 11, 2018

… To Keep This Year For Healthier Hair!

Achieve your best hair ever this year by following these easy “resolutions” created by the haircare experts at Viviscal…

1. Skip A Few Shampoos
Washing hair everyday can cause dry, brittle and breakage prone tresses.

2. Sleep On Silk
Cotton pillowcases cause friction that can seriously stress out your coif.

3. Embrace What You Have
Give your blow dryers, curling irons and flat iron a break and just rock your natural texture.

4. Minimal Damage
Try and vow to never heat style without applying some sort of heat protectant.

5. Take Your Vitamins
A healthy body is more likely to produce healthy hair. Vitamins and/or supplements can really make a difference.

Recognize & Repair
January 4, 2018

It’s 2018 and time to make your mane the most beautiful it’s ever looked. According to Viviscal, the main signs of damaged hair include split ends, hair breakage and dullness. In contrast, healthy hair is shinier, thicker and less prone to breakage. Normally, we lose between 50 and 100 hairs every day. However, if your hair breaks easily and you are losing more than 100 hairs in your hairbrush or shower drain, your hair could be damaged.

Hair shedding and damaged hair can be caused by overstyling, too-harsh chemical hair products, hair color treatments, heat-styling such as blow-drying and straightening, shampoos with parabens and sulfates, and environmental factors. Damaged hair can also be caused by internal factors such as poor diet, stress, aging, medication, post-pregnancy, menopause and smoking.

As a damaged hair treatment for damage due to overstyling, harsh chemicals and heat-styling, reduce your use of heat styling tools and cut down on overstyling with tight braids and other elaborate hairstyles that cause damage and breakage to hair. To help repair damaged hair and reduce hair shedding, try a hair growth supplement to nourish hair follicles from within with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. (Viviscal makes a good one: Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Growth Supplement!)

Julianne’s Glam Look
January 2, 2018

Glamour, glamour, glamour! Julianne Hough took on a glamour-girl vibe with luscious curls, thanks to Jill Buck from Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood. Buck shares how she created the look…

“I gave Julianne’s hair a few sprays of Joico Blonde Life Brightening Veil protectant before curling. You can never have too much protection.

 

 

 

 

I set her curls in a tighter set, moving all away from her face in the same pattern. This look was very much ’70s-inspired, and I wanted the S shape to be visible. This is where Joico’s Hair Shake Texturizer Spray was key in holding the shape I created while brushing and teasing the S wave. I worked in small sections curl by curl and then gave a generous spray of hairspray to hold in place once I was happy with it.”

Magnesium Must-Have
December 28, 2017

If you want to give your tresses a boost, you may want to make sure you’re getting enough magnesium in your diet, shares Viviscal, makers of Viviscal Hair Growth and Hair Care Programs. Magnesium helps prevent calcium build-up on your scalp. When calcium clogs hair follicles, your scalp will be dry, flaky and you could even see some hair loss. These calcium deposits on and around the hair follicles can increase over time due to scalp inflammation.

Magnesium counteracts with calcium, improving circulation and making sure calcium gets to your bones where it’s needed, rather than clogging up on the surface of your scalp. Better circulation also means that other nutrients from your diet are getting to your follicles.

It’s a win-win!

7. Carefully twist up the remaining hair and pin up the ends underneath the bun. Finish and set the look with  hairspray.
