JAIME’S SUMMER WAVES


Proving gorgeous waves are always in style when it comes to summer, Matrix Artistic Director & Celebrity Stylist Nick Stenson created a fab mane profile for actress Jaime King for Wandelust in Denver, CO. “When discussing Jamie’s look, we settled on something that would be movable and pliable all day long at the Wanderlust festival,” shares Stenson. “We embodied her personality and Bohemian vibe with simple textured waves, keeping the hair looking soft and beautiful.”

Here’s the step-by-step…

1. Apply Biolage R.A.W. Smoothing Styling Milk to damp hair for heat and color protection, then blow-dry.

2. Spray locks with Biologe R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray, then use a ¾ inch barrel curling iron to curl hair. Brush through resulting curls to create soft waves.

3. Spray Biolage R.A.W. Frizz Control Spray through the hair to maintain frizz and protect from humidity.

“The look of love 💕 When@nickstenson gives you the hairstyle of the summer! Thank you Nick, @matrix& @biolage for the amazing experience@wanderlustfest!” –Jaime King, via Instagram

5 Steps To Better Nails (Break The Nail-Biting Habit!)


 
Ladies it’s time to put an end to nail-biting. This bad habit can weaken your nails and even damage their ability to grow. To help you kick this horrid habit, we teamed up celebrity and fashion manicurist Rachel Shim to give you the 5 best tips and tricks to keep your fingers pretty!

ONE: Get Up With Your Manicures. Sometimes nail-biting begins with the need to remove dry, hardened and/or calloused cuticles on the sides of the nail. Weekly manicures, at home or at a salon, will give you the chance to tame unmanageable cuticles quick and easy. Also, you’ll be less likely to bite off your fresh mani.

TWO: Use A Cuticle Oil. Once you’ve freshened up your cuticles, keep them healthy and moisturized with cuticle oil. This will keep the nails from flaking and peeling so there will be nothing to bite.

THREE: Try Out A Nail-Biting Inhibitor. Nail inhibitor discourage you from putting your fingers anywhere near your mouth by leaving an unpleasant, sour taste that’ll make you never want to bite your fingernails again. Dermelect’s new Resist Nail Bite Inhibitor + Restorative Treatment is a great option.

FOUR: Go Short. By maintaining short, trimmed nails you’ll leave little to nothing to bite off.

FIVE: Figure Out Why You’re Doing It. Do you bite your nails when you’re nervous? Anxious? Scared? Sad? Did you recently drop another bad habit like smoking? Just like with anything else figuring out why you’re do something will help you stop doing it.

How amazing is this half-up half-down ‘do? Dark blonde strands are tinted purple, pink, blue and green at the tips. A portion of hair on top is pulled back and styled into two voluminous braids that meet in the middle. Cascading curls finish off the style and highlight the cool color combination.

Blonde Rehab


Being blonde can be so much fun! But maintaining the hue can seriously stress out your tresses. We asked the pros at Viviscal what should blonde babes do if they’ve over bleached–and they should know, since the company specializes in formulas that give you beautiful, healthy hair, like Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo and Conditioner. The experts recommend starting off with a fresh cut and seeking our a colorist who can give you a more natural and manageable hue that stills looks great as it grows out. This way the time between colorings are longer.

Aly Wave How-To


 
For the 2017 ESPYs, Olympian Aly Raisman walked the red carpet looking stunning in sun-kissed beautiful waves created by Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas. The mane pro shares how he did it…

“We wanted a soft natural movement for Aly’s waves.  I started with Matrix Style Link Blowout Curvy Queen Curl Creating Blowout Cream on damp hair to help protect her mane and enhance the waves.  I used a round brush to smooth and add volume, then used a large 1.5″ curling iron to give the hair a soft bend. Once cooled, I brushed out the waves and sprayed her hair with Biolage R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray to lock in the waves and texture. For the final touch, I sprayed Biolage R.A.W. Replenish Oil-Mist through the ends.”

Get Selena’s Look In 3 Easy Steps!

Want to know how to re-create the “Bad Liar” singer’s look? Thankfully her makeup artist, Hung Vanngo, has revealed exactly what he used for Selena’s no-makeup, makeup look using all Marc Jacobs Beauty products…

  1. The brand’s Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter was mixed in with moisturizer for the songstress’ glowing base.
  2. Cute faux freckles were created using the Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon in (Earth)quake.
  3. To finish the look, Vanngo applied the Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in a soft, shimmering peach shade called French Tickler.
