Carrie Ann Is Back!


Dancing With The Stars is back on primetime, and while we like seeing the stars do their waltzes and tangos, we love seeing Carrie Ann Inaba every week! The judge has amazing hair, and Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide has personally spoken with the star to get her beauty secrets…

GIULIANA RANCIC

Celebrity Chat

Giuliana Rancic rose to fame as the co-host of E! News. Her charm, down-to-earth personality and standout style soon made her a household name, paving the way for her hit reality show Giuliana & Bill. The E! News, Fashion Police and Beyond Candid With Giuliana host sat down with Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide to talk about her fantastic mane moves……

XX1

“[Short hair] shows my makeup more now and the fashion—whatever the detail is on the dress or the shirt shows more.”

“It’s definitely a move I’m happy I made.”

XX2

“I wash [my hair] every two to three days.”

“What I’ll do is tease my hair at the crown, put a little product (like dry shampoo) in it and put it in a ponytail. When in doubt, I always have a hair band with me.”

MICHELLE TRACHTENBERG


Backstage Pass

The John Frieda Precision Foam Colour Campaign

Hollywood starlet Michelle Trachtenberg has styled it up on the sets of hit TV shows like Weeds and Gossip Girl. To amp up her mane shade, the actress turned to the amazing John Frieda Precision Color at-home treatment. Here, John Frieda International Creative Consultant Harry Josh gives us the details…

MICHELLE TRACHTENBERG MICHELLE TRACHTENBERG

  • With the rich, deep shade that she chose, we wanted to keep the styling chic and simple with high gloss to show off the new shade.
  • If you’re looking for her exact shade and are within two shades currently, try John Frieda Precision Foam Colour in 3N (Brilliant Brunette Deep Brown Black).
  • If you’re looking for that newly colored shine, but don’t’ want to use at-home color, try using a glaze like John Frieda Clear Glaze Luminous Shine.
  • Recreate Michelle’s beautiful blow-out by towel-drying hair and spritzing on Full Repair Style Revival. Blow-dry hair in sections with a boar bristle brush to pull hair straight and smooth.

    GISELE BÜNDCHEN


    VV

    Sophisticate’s 10

    Supermodel Gisele Bündchen is a Brazilian goddess. As a Victoria’s Secret Angel, she’s best known for her amazing body, but now she’s letting her mane take the spotlight as she steps in as Pantene’s newest celebrity ambassador. Here, Giselle chats with Sophisticate’s about her gorgeous locks…

    “When I’m not working, I let my hair dry naturally. I use daily products by Pantene that help keep my hair hydrated and shiny.”

    • My hair’s health
      My hair gets extremely dry from sun damage and exposure to chlorine and salt water during the summer. I try to undo the damage by using the Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner…Also, I usually bleach my hair only once or twice a year to avoid damage.
    • My no-brush policy
      A brush is definitely not in my list of accessories. When I shower, after I apply conditioner into my hair, I pass my fingers through it and let my hair dry naturally. Every once in a while, I comb my hair in the shower, but I don’t comb or brush after that.

    Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 11

    Kellie Shaved Her Head!


    Yes, Kellie Pickler shaved her head for attention—but it was the right kind of attention.

    Her best friend, Summer Miller, was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 36. In a show of solidarity, and to help bring awareness to the importance of early detection, Kellie and Summer shaved their heads just before Summer started chemotherapy.

    “Cancer does not discriminate,” says Kellie. “If this compels even one person to change their mentality toward waiting until the age of 40 for their mammogram, then it will be worth it.”

    We think she looks beautiful—inside and outside.

    Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 5


     

    Sept 5
