Faith Hill’s Top Knot
November 13, 2017

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!

One Great Look – Boho Glamour
November 8, 2017

Hair by Annette Waligora
Chicago, IL

We adore how fun and feminine this coif is. Tresses are split down the middle and plaited into voluminous French braids on either side. Once locks dip below the nape they become tighter, multi-strand braids and then the hair is left to fall free past the shoulders. Glitter is adorned on the part and several hair accessories finish off the look.

Miley Mane Moves
November 7, 2017

How cute has Miley Cyrus been looking on The Voice? Very cute! Gone are the defined, halfway-down roots, having been replaced by a more blended buttery-bronzey blonde. The length is allowing her to do all sorts of styles, and we’re more than happy to tune in to see how she’s wearing it from show to show. We love!

Protective Styles
October 31, 2017

Stop stressing out your strands with unhealthy and excessive tugging and pulling that can cause your hair to become delicate and potentially led to hair loss! Instead of tight buns and ponytails the hair care experts at Viviscal suggest safe and stylish looks like messy updos, long bangs, shoulder length looks, Natural hairdos and loose, bohemian ponytails.

Great idea!

DOES IT WORK?: Hair, Skin & Nail Vitamins
October 24, 2017

It seems like every social media stunner swears by this and that vitamin that is guaranteed to give you dream hair, skin and nails. But are they worth the hype? With the help of Viviscal, here are the vitamins that actually help to give you healthy hair, strong nails and gorgeous skin…

Marine Fatty Acids, such as omega 3, works to heal dry and damaged hair, combat hair loss and treat flaky scalp.

Vitamin B acts as antioxidant for the skin and can help remove bacteria and balance testosterone levels to fight acne.

Biotin, or Vitamin B7, is a must for healthy hair! This vitamin stimulates hair growth and promotes healthy hair.

Emmy Look How-To: Laura Dern
October 23, 2017

We know we’re not the only ones who loves Big Little Lies’s Laura Dern’s luscious locks at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards! Her hairstylist, celebrity hairdresser Ryan Trygstad was kind enough to break down her feisty look for us using The One by Frédéric Fekkai products…

“Once seeing the dress, we decided to go with the more sexy undone texture, with a bit of edge and choppiness. I first prepped Laura’s hair with One to Believe In Leave-In Conditioner then blew her hair half dry with a large round brush. Next I added The Gifted One Multitasker Creme through the mid-shaft and ends for protection and shine. Then I used the One Up Lift Volume Spray for root lift and long-lasting control. Once Laura’s hair was completely dry I first sprayed the entire head with the One To Hold Hairspray I did this to help with hold when I next curled her hair with a ceramic one-inch, leaving the ends of the hair a bit straighter and spikey. For the final product I sprayed One and Then Some Dry Texturizing Spray for a dry loose hold, and sexiness!”

MYTH BUSTED: Is Hot Water Hair Safe?
October 17, 2017

We’ve all heard the trick of washing our mane with cold water. Is that because hot water is actually damaging to our coifs? According to the experts at Viviscal, hot-water washes won’t directly cause hair loss, but can affect the health of your scalp. They suggest washing and conditioning strands with warm water, never scalding hot water, and then finishing with a cold water rinse.

Kelsea’s Chic Updo How-To
October 16, 2017

Photo: FilmMagic | CFlanigan

Kelsea Ballerini stunned, as usual, at the 2017 IHeartRadio Music Festival with the help of celebrity hairstylist Tarryn Feldman. “This look is super sleek but edgy, Feldman explains. “We wanted to do something sophisticated in the front and off her face with a little eye candy in the back.” Check out how the beautiful ‘do was created…

“I used BioSilk Silk Therapy serum with the BioSilk Titanium Professional Hair Dryer to give her hair massive volume. After it was dry, I used Kevin Murphy Doo Over at her roots. I took the BioSilk Titanium Spring Curling Iron to give her texture in the front. I started in the back and did 3 twist braids to create the Mohawk effect in the back. Then, I teased her roots and pinned her hair back and connected to the top braid. I used BioSilk Silk Therapy Dry Clean Shampoo to piece out the front and BioSilk Silk Therapy Finishing Spray: Firm Hold to hold the look. Also, I used some ORIBE Dry Texturizing Spray as well as Kevin Murphy Powder Puff.”
