Unicorn Dreaming

These vibrant, iridescent tresses are a perfect example of the unicorn haircolor trend. Sorbet shades of blush, sapphire, lavender and pistachio are flawlessly blended throughout a chiffon base for a magnetic mane that will have all eyes on you.

Back To Blonde!

After talking a walk on the red side, Julianne Hough is back to her trademark blonde, thanks to Nine Zero One stylist and co-owner Riawna Capri, who regularly styles up the actress/singer/dancer. This time around, Capri is dubbing the bright shade a “honeysuckle blonde,” which she created with Joico Blonde Life Lightening Powder and LumiShine haircolor. While we greatly admired the scarlet hue, we love seeing Julianne back as a blonde. Gorgeous!

A classic bun, topknot or low chignon are classics styles…because they never fail to deliver.

Another Great Summer Pony

Celeb stylist Jenny Cho created what she dubbed a “textured chignon pony” for Kristen Bell for a movie premiere. Like a chignon, but instead of capturing all the hair in the twist, the ends are left out at the bottom to form a ponytail. We think it’s adorable for summer.

To prevent breakage, don’t rub your hair with a dry towel. Instead, blot the hair and twist lengths up in the towel.


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.

Allow your mane to air dry on occasion to give it a rest from heat styling.

Fuchsia Feels

Who doesn’t love a flirty ponytail! This hot pink-tipped, brunette mane is the perfect night-out look. Several braids in front meet at the base of the crown and are pulled into a large pony with curls cascading down. So fun! Styled by Christopher Noble, from The Salon by InStyle inside JCPenney in Kansas City, KS.

Make your mane pop this season. Add stylish jeweled hairpins, flowers, barrettes or beads to spice up your look.

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.

Who doesn’t love a stunning balayage with ombré style roots? A rich mocha base paired with vanilla foam throughout make this hairstyle a must-try. Loose, irresistible waves fall past the shoulders, and lengthy layers add glitz and glam.

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.
