Miley’s Short Smoothie


 

Miley Cyrus is having an excellent grow-out! From super-short shaved sides to a cute pixie snip, the singer has been stepping up her style game. Wella Professionals Celebrity Ambassador Andy LeCompte recently styled Miley for a red-carpet event, giving the star a sleek finish. The mane pro shares how you can create a similar style vibe…

1. Prime damp hair by applying 2-3 pumps of Wella Professionals LuxeOil Reconstructive Elixir to the palms of your hands and distributing evenly throughout hair. Create a deep side part then blow dry hair flat to the head.

2. Add 4-5 pumps of Wella Professionals Pearl Styler Styling Gel to the palms of your hands and distribute evenly throughout the hair then slick hair down using a fine tooth comb.

3. Gently smooth on a shine-enhancing product over the top of locks for extra sheen power, then finish with a light hairspray to prevent flyaways.

Chrissy’s Glam Waves

While other stars were slicking back their hair in chic chignons or free-flowing ponytails, Chrissy Teigen was in full-wave glory with her lengths locks flowing freely. The golden cascading waves were created by Macadamia Professional International Creative Director and Celebrity Stylist Giannandrea, who shares how you can get the look at home…

1.       Apply a volumizing product to damp hair and blow-dry large sections with a round brush to amplify volume.

2.       Create a deep side part and wrap small sections around a 1-inch curling iron.

3.       Brush hair downward to slightly relax the waves, spraying each section with Macadamia Control Working Spray.

4.       Using hands, run a quarter-sized amount of Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment through the length of the hair to increase shine.

5.       Brush the hair again and mist the Control Working Spray once more to set your hair.

Chloe’s Sleek Style


87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Smooth and shiny was the name of the mane style game for Chloe Grace Moretz at the Oscars on Sunday. The look was created by style pro Gregory Russell, who shares the step-by-step…

  • Chloe first prepped her hair by cleansing with Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner for Medium hair.
  • On her damp hair I applied Style Link Volume Builder Mousse to the crown area, and Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner Leave-In Treatment Anti Frizz Lotion for Medium Hair to mid-strand through the ends.
  • I blow-dried her hair with a medium  ceramic brush for body and smoothness.
  • Next, I tucked her hair behind her ears for face framing shape and used a 1.25″ iron to add subtle movement to the ends. I sprayed the ends with Matrix Style Link Texture Builder  for a romantic undone texture.
  • For definition, I used Biolage Agave Nectar Control Gel through the ends and around the face. I then applied Style Link Height Riser powder to the crown for more volume and texture.
  • I finished by untucking the hair from behind her right ear, leaving the left tucked to show off her insane earcuff. I set the finished style with Matrix Style Link Volume Builder Hairspray for hold!

Oscar Trend: Ponytails!


From Dakota Johnson to Jennifer Lopez, ponytails were seen at all the hot Oscar events last night. One you may have missed but we absolutely loved? Leslie Mann’s awesome tail–totally textured and very high volume! The star wore her tress look to the Vanity Fair Oscar party and had us hooked the second she turned her head. Nexxus New York Salon Care Celebrity Stylist Lona Vigi created the look. “Leslie and I decided to add volume and waves to a chic low pony to mimic the ’70s vibe of her outfit,” shares the mane pro. She’s also sharing how you can get the same gorgeous ponytail look…

  1. Start by washing hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner.  On wet hair, create a center part and apply Nexxus New York Salon Care EXXTRA GEL Superior Hold Sculpting Gel to define the hair around the face and sides for a sleek look.
  2. Blow-dry the hair off the face and secure hair in a ponytail. Curl the ends with a small barrel curling iron.
  3. Brush out the ponytail and backcomb for fullness.  Finish by spraying with Nexxus New York Salon Care MAXXIMUM Superior Hold Finishing Mist to provide a defined texture and firm hold.

 

New Giuliana For The Oscars!


new giuliana

While you may think you know what to expect on the red carpet at tonight’s Oscars, here’s one change already from the Golden Globes–Giuliana Rancic changed her haircolor! Herself!

Giuliana went the DIY route and colored her own hair last night using Vidal Sassoon Salonist! Giuliana explained “Honestly at first, I was a bit nervous since I have colored my hair at-home in the past, but color kits would leave me with dull, flat hair color.” Trading in her bleach blonde locks for a rich warm golden brown shade was something she would typically leave to the pros, but Giuliana explained, “while I love my colorist, I’m always on the go and I don’t always have time to get my hair professionally colored.”

Giuliana was originally planning on going for a very light chestnut brown, but was inspired by the hair color of so many Oscar presenters and nominees, and their gorgeous hues. Because of this, she decided to go for a rich medium golden brown with warm undertones. Giuliana said she’s excited to unveil her new look on the red carpet tonight. “I picked an outfit that pairs nicely with the Salonist Medium Gold Brown. It complements my new shade!”
