LOOK WHO’S HEADED TO DANCING WITH THE STARS!
August 29, 2014

sadie

The new season of Dancing With The Stars is shaping up to be one interesting ride! It was just announced that Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson will be appearing on the ABC-TV show. Sadie, who is one stylista!, told Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide recently that she loves her long hair. Why? “I had a bad hair cut one time, so now I do not cut my hair. My hair is naturally super straight, so I curl it a lot, but waves are my favorite style!” Hmmm…looks like the behind-the-scenes glam pros will have some fun with this beautiful young woman! Wonder who else will be on the show?

SHE’S SO FANCY!
August 28, 2014

Have you gotten caught up in Charli XCX? Well, if not—she’s this summer’s new it girl who is on the charts with “Fancy” and “Boom Clap”! This past week on the MTV VMA’s she pulled off an animal print jumpsuit without looking too old school. Her makeup, though, was a bit old-Hollywood inspired! Charli’s makeup artist, Colby Smith, did a bold brow thanks to Giorgio Armani’s Eye & Brown Maestro in #2. Black eyeliner was smudged out on lid. Several coats of Armani’s Black Ecstasy mascara was used to make her lashes pop. For lips it was MAC Lip Liner in Cherry to keep the color in place. We like!

PRETTY KITTY

Cat Deeley looked beautiful at the Emmy Awards this past weekend! To accompany her flowing gown in rose ombre, celebrity stylist Sallie Nicole for Wella Professionals created a romantic upsweep. “The look we were going for was modern vintage with added texture,” shares Nicole. Here’s the step-by-step…

1. Apply a dime size amount of Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier as a primer to damp hair.

2. Spread a small handful of Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse throughout from root to tips.

3. Rough blow-dry with round brush focusing on lifting at the root to create added volume.

4. Use a 1-inch curling iron with the clamp remaining closed to create waves and texture throughout the hair.

5. Taking pieces section by section, use bobby pins to create a secured yet loose up-do.

6. Finally, mist Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray to set look for a natural non-sticky hold.
 

MILEY STYLES IT!
August 26, 2014

Miley Cyrus not only took home the Video of the Year award for “Wrecking Ball” at the VMA’s, she also took home our award for fab short look—thanks to Wella Professionals Ambassador Andy LeCompte!

To do, Andy washed and conditioned Miley’s hair with Wella Professionals LuxeOil Keratin Protect Shampoo and Keratin
Restore Mask. He then primed the hair by applying a few pumps of Wella Professionals LuxeOil Reconstructive Elixir. Next, he did a blow-dry in all directions, alternating between fingertips and a small ceramic brush. To shape, he used a few pumps of LuxeOilReconstructive Elixir and finished with a light keratin protection spray. Fab results!
