FERGIE & SOCOLOR


Matrix SOCOLOR Cult Icon Fergie took the stage at the 2018 Feinstein Institute Summer Gala. She was seen debuting newly launched SOCOLOR Cult shades in “Red Hot,” “Orange Alert” and “Lucky Duck Yellow.”

Fergie’s vibrant new locks were styled by Matrix Celebrity Stylists George Papanikolas and Nick Stenson, with special help from the two grand prize winners of the Fergie X Matrix SOCOLOR Cult Social Media Contest, Eli Mancha and Amanda Stone. The contest asked hairstylists around the country to create and submit fun, flirty and fierce vibrant hair color looks for a chance to style Fergie and her dancers for the gala.

Topknot Game


Here’s how you not only up, but win the topknot game: add braided detail. Celebrity stylist Dimitri Giannetos created this sassy look for singer Meghan Trainor. Every few inches, a section of hair is done in a basic plait, with all lengths being pulled to the top and twisted into classic big bun. It’s simple and cute.

4 Tips For Styling Thin Hair


The folks at Viviscal know that styling thin hair so it looks a little less thin is an art form. Here are four solid tips they’re offering up…

1.  For more volume, rough blow-dry damp hair upside down. Finish with a blast of cold air to seal cuticles and add shine to hair.

2.  Before styling your updo, use a large-barrel curling iron to add texture to fine hair.

3.  Lay the base for a more volumized look by applying Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir to wet or dry hair to help add lightweight body.

4.  Do hair pins fall out of your fine hair? Here’s an insider tip: spritz bobby pins with hairspray for a more lasting hold.

Pet Pampering!


Celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin, longtime tress tamer to the Kardashians, Jenners, Hadids and many other hot celebs, has added a pet shampoo to her product line Ouai.

Packed with ingredients including apple cider vinegar, aloe leaf juice and tamarind seed extract, plus the same signature scent that goes into the people products, the formula has a time-release technology that promises to effectively fight odors.

“We wanted to create a gentle shampoo that not only fought odor and cleaned, but also smelled good,” shares the stylist, who was inspired to create the product after spending time at Vanderpump Pets in Los Angeles, the store and non-profit foundation started by Lisa Vanderpump. 15 percent of all sales of the limited-edition shampoo will go toward Vanderpump Pets.

CAMILLA MAKEUP!


Singer-songwriter Camila Cabello’s love of her hometown of Havana is no longer solely immortalized in her words, it is now the name and inspiration behind a new L’Oréal Paris limited-edition makeup collection, available for a limited time only. Designed through a close collaboration between Camila and L’Oréal Paris, the 14-piece line includes natural-looking, universally-appealing shades and vibrant packaging, a tribute to the natural beauty she grew up surrounded by in her beloved home city of Havana.

“I am extremely proud and excited about the Havana collection,” says Camila Cabello. “I wanted to create products that not only I would personally wear, but that would work well across various skin tones. For me, looking and feeling my best helps fuel my confidence and I hope to inspire other people to feel the same.”
