Magical Holiday Looks /wp-content/uploads/2018/11/8.jpg

This holiday season, the right hair accessory can mean the difference between a look that’s naughty or nice—pick which one you want to be in our latest issue!



Meghan Trainor posted a pic of her new cut and color on Instagram and we love it! With lot of long layers and tousled styling, we can’t help but thinking of the rock-‘n’-roll shag cuts that were popular years back–but this has a modern edge with that slight beach wave, making it a slightly softer very-today version. We’re on board!

We’re swooning over this deep red hue complete with subtle highlights and lowlights. We love it even more styled with full fringe and easy waves. Is it hot in here, or is it just this one great look…

Follow each shampoo with a rinse-out conditioner and deep condition your tresses two to four times per month, as needed.

Blonde For A Minute

Ever wonder what brunette beauty Vanessa Hudgens would look like as a blonde? Wonder no more! The star sported a white-hot wig for her judging gig on So You Think You Can Dance. It works, right?

Get sparkly with hair accessories!

Sunrise, Sunset

We always love a good red, and this mahogany-based hue with magenta, tangerine and hot-pink hues had us at hello. Designed by hairstylist Katie Sauvageau of JCPenney Salon Fargo, ND, the sunrise-sunset shades that edge the bottom are the stuff of dreams–gorgeous, don’-wake-me-up, technicolor dreams.

Depending on the type of hair color, it’s important to have your hair pro touch up your color every 6-8 weeks so book accordingly!

One Great Look: Blended

A beautiful blend of blonde and brunette come together in this gorgeous wavy profile to create the ultimate color combo. If we couldn’t decide between light and dark, we would totally decide on this.

Avoid sleeping on damp hair as this may result in severe tangling.

New Music From Taylor Swift!

Taylor Swift announced her new album, Reputation, will be released on November 10, with a new single coming tomorrow night. Here’s the album cover. We have a feeling the wet-hair look will be making a big comeback…

To cut down on heat damage, blow-dry hair using a cool or medium heat setting whenever possible.

The Short Of It

We all know Dove Cameron looks amazing with her long, silky, white-blonde tresses, but now we know she can do a shorter snip just as well. The star shows off beachy waves in a piecy bob cut (Real or faux? Hmmmm) that we instantly want to steal for our own. Putting this in our style wish book for fall…

To help strengthen strands before bleaching them, give your hair a protein treatment and amp up the moisture.

Do You Dare?

Cara Delevigne shows off just how short her mane really is in this gorgeous back view. After shaving her crown for a movie role, tresses are just starting to grow back, and the star is letting the length in slowly, with super-short layers everywhere. Do you dare go this short? (Just imagine giving up your curling iron for the rest of the summer… more time for the beach!)

Ask you stylist to apply a gloss on top of your haircolor to help seal, protect and preserve your color.


While we’re always admiring Gwen Stefani’s platinum-blonde locks, we have to say we’re positively blown away by her lashes! If ever we felt we needed inspo to try out fake lashes, this would be it. #MascaraEnvy

To minimize stress on color-treated strands, always begin with a heat protectant before heat styling.

Keeping strands conditioned can help prevent or reduce the appearance of split ends.

This Girl Is On Fire

What starts as a rich cocoa brunette haircolor turns into a firestorm of perfectly hot color. Hairstylist Katie Sauvageau of JCPenney Salon in Fargo, ND, created this blend of magenta, orange, pink and chocolate, and did it very well. #NoExtinguisherRequired

A clean scalp promotes healthy hair growth by removing build-up, dead skin, and other unwanted debris; so try to maintain a regular cleansing schedule.

One Great Look: Vanilla Dreams

Hair by Iris Reams
Post Salon & Spa
Lexington, KY

When we think of blonde perfection, this vanilla dream is one the shades that pops into our head. Starting from darker roots, the pretty highlights and lowlights take hold and make us swoon. P.S. Did we also mention how much we love the angled bob cut?

Always detangle when your hair is wet and primed with conditioner. Using a wide-toothed comb, start at the ends and work your way up.


It’s August. It’s summer. It’s hot. And gosh-darn it–so are you! So how about a fab cut and an awesome color to make your outsides match your insides, and the weather outside. All you have to do is pick up a copy of Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide (Kylie is on the cover!), thumb through the pages to find all sorts of wonderful inspiration (like the look above, p. 22), dog-ear the corners and head to your fave stylist. You’re on your way to sizzlin’ territory!

To achieve straight, flowing tresses without relaxing hair, try for a Keratin treatment.

Ombre Goals

While bold, bright colors take our breath away, we’re still entranced by the beauty of classic brunette blended with blonde, especially when it’s masterfully done in an ombre bob. Celebrity hairstylist Justine Maran shared this haute pic of Khloé Kardashian’s on her Instagram page, and we had to share it with you. Haircolor at its very best!

Temporarily camouflage grey hair, in between color applications, with hair mascara or hair color sticks.

3 Mane Twists From The Teen Choice Awards

Last night’s Teen Choice Awards red-carpet brought out the celebs in mass quantities, along with some fab hair moves–and a couple of fun beauty twists! Here are three that caught our eye…

Bella has been changing up her mane moves lately, so it wasn’t a complete shock that she would do something different with her hair. We have to admit, we like the magenta hue accented with glitter on the side. Very unicorn-chic.

Out with new music a feathery haircut, we love the swoop of lemon yellow in the singer’s fringe.

A blonde with short hair on TV show Star, Jude gave us a shock when she arrived with flowing brunette curls. Though she returned to short and blonde for her performance during the show, she ditched the curls for a super-straight retro look. Jude! Way to surprise us!
