How to play with platinum just in time for spring.

   

Topknot Cuteness


Who can live without the topknot, the ultimate upsweep for women on the go, and the reason so many of us wear an elastic band around our wrists? Leave it to Khloe Kardashian and her stylist, Jen Atkin, to create a totally cute version that goes beyond the gym, living room couch and walk around the park. The whole thing is too cute, and #hairgoals if we’ve ever had one.

Avocado oil is great for Natural hair because it’s loaded with nutrients and vitamins.

Winter Blonde


If you’re trying to figure out how to bring your blonde into the winter months, this is the perfect way. LeAnn Rimes shows off the perfect antique gold with hints of dark caramel and auburn. When the spring hits, the color is easily warmed up with more golden tones, and in summer, even bolder shades of blonde. It’s the perfect transition color.

THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS!


One of our favorite made-for-tv movies, The 12 Days of Christmas, is back on tonight on Lifetime! Kristen Chenoweth (always great hair!)  plays a PR excec who escapes to a small town, where she puts her media know-how to good use raising money for a local rescue squad. Her racy idea of selling a sexy calendar featuring squad members is met with some local resistance. Yes, it’s a chick flick and we love!!!

Faith Hill’s Top Knot


Did you love Faith Hill’s sexy top knot on the red carpet at the CMA Awards? Using The One byFrederic Fekkai, here’s how stylist Lorenzo Martin created the look…

  • After seeing Faith’s stunning, one shoulder, Armani Privé gown, we decided to go with a messy top knot. I blow-dried Faith’s hair with a large round brush and then sprayed One and Then Some Dry Texturizing Spray throughout her hair, creating a lived-in look.
  • I then took all her hair and tied it into a high pony. I wrapped various pieces of hair in different directions and secured them with hair pins. I finished the look with The One by Frederic Fekkai One To Hold Hairspray to make her hair sexy and tousled for the night!
