Sophisticate’s 10

Starring in the Disney Channel Original Series Jessie, Debby Ryan plays an 18-year-old small-town girl trying to find her way in the big city—a nice switch from her days on Suite Life On Deck. Sophisticate’s chatted with Debby to find out a few of her beauty secrets…

“What I love about dark hair is that it’s a bit more dramatic and very striking against my skin tone.”
  • My best hair tip
    Consider not washing your hair every day. By the time I was 13, my hair was completely dried out from washing it every single day. If you’re going to a big event, wash your hair the day before because it will be so much easier to style the next day.
  • Big brother is watching!
    If I’m ever concerned about an outfit being too mature, I always trust my brother—he’s two years older. I base it on the amount of wincing on his face. If I walk out and he’s squirming then I try something else.
  • It’s Here! It’s Here!

    Blend golden shimmer cream into under-eye concealer. This cancels out dark circles and wakes up the whole eye area.

    Just Do It!

    “It’s about having the confidence to just get in the salon and do it!”

    Days Of Our Lives star Lisa Rinna has a layered silhouette she’s been wearing in variations for years—it’s become her signature snip, and women love it! Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide talked with Lisa one-on-one to get all her beauty secrets, and to ask her what advice she has for women who want to try her hip shag cut. Just do it is her sentiment! “The good thing about my hair is that it’s fool proof—the messier and chunkier it is the better!”

    We’ve been singing Karmin’s “Heartbroken” all summer long–it’s so catchy! We knew we had to find out about Karmin’s lead singer, Amy Heidemann, and her trademark hair roll.

    “I was walking down the street in Boston and Bebe had this big ad campaign poster with a blonde girl with huge, fluffy curls and this cinnamon roll thing on her forehead. I was like, ‘I love that!'” Amy reveals about the inspiration for her cool ‘do.

    And we love her the singer’s hair philosophy: “I think with enough hairspray and bobby pins, anything is possible!”

    Clip-in extensions are a quick and easy way to achieve long, luscious and beautifully bouncy hair, even if you’re rockin’ shoulder length strands.

    And The New Judge Is…

    “We are proud to have one of the world’s greatest-ever female singers join our show,” said American Idol creator and executive producer Simon Fuller. “Mariah defines the word ‘Idol’ and will inspire every singer that has the honor of performing in front of her.”

    That’s right! Mariah Carey is one of the new judges on American Idol. Says Mariah, “As a singer, songwriter and producer, it’s going to be fun and rewarding to help find new talent and give back with American Idol. I’m currently in the studio working on my new album and its first single, ‘Triumphant,’ which will be out early next month. I can’t wait to channel my creative energy as a part of this show which is a massive global phenomenon.”

    Do you think she’ll make a good judge?
