5 Steps To Hailee’s Waves
May 23, 2017

LAS VEGAS, NV - MAY 21: Singer Hailee Steinfeld attends the 2017 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on May 21, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Photo by Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic)

Hailee Steinfeld nailed the magenta carpet in a bold & edgy look at the Billboard Music Awards. Beyond the metallic and black gown, her longer-than-long hair looked amazing, thanks to hairstylist Gregory Russell. “Hailee’s style was inspired by her sequined David Koma gown,” shares Russell. “I wanted to be sure to give her a modern look with varying textures that would pair perfectly.” Here’s how you can steal the Pitch Perfect star’s style…

  1. Apply a volumizing mousse to damp hair, then apply a heat-protectant.
  2. Blow-dry away from the face and through the ends using a large round brush.
  3. Create a deep side part. Taking 1 inch sections at a time, curl hair (all in the same direction) with a 1.5″ iron, pinning each curl until cool.
  4. Once cooled, brush out curls into waves and apply Matrix Style Link Over Achiever through the ends to add structure and shine.
  5. Apply styling gel through the roots to hold the hair away from the face; use flat hair pins to set. Diffuse-dry the gelled areas for 10 minutes, then remove pins. Spray with hairspray Matrix Style Link Style Fixer for hold.

4 Steps To Steal Jessica’s Style
May 19, 2017

 

The Zookeepers Wife actress Jessica Chastain never disappoints when it comes to her red carpet, so it was no surprise the redhead was a fan favorite at the 2017 Met Gala. Celebrity hairdresser Renato Campora, who styled Jessica for the red-carpet event, shares an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into how this hairdo was created…

  1. Prime damp hair with Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse, then blow-dry with a round brush. (Campora used the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer on the highest heat setting, medium airflow and used the smoothing nozzle).
  2. Once hair is dry, use a 1 1/2-inch curling iron to create waves and movement.
  3. Create a loose braid and tuck in the tail end to create volume; secure with a bobby pin.
  4. To finish, mist with strong-hold hairspray.

One Great Look: Purple Blush

The root of all things good and cool — purple. A platinum mane is blushed with deep, dark roots of royal purple that melt into white-hot blonde. You can’t get much more fab than this.
