Happy 10th!


Mario Tricoci (1)

Tricoci University of Beauty Culture (TUBC) celebrates the 10th anniversary of its flagship campus this month! Beauty industry leader Mario Tricoci founded TUBC a decade ago, with the sole purpose to redefine beauty education. He launched the Chicago Northwest campus on Harlem Avenue in 2004 and then went on to open nine more campuses across Illinois and Indiana.

Says Tricoci, “I’m proud of what we have achieved over the past decade and it has been amazing to watch TUBC grow across Illinois and Indiana. The whole TUBC team deserves recognition, including our talented team of instructors, dedicated students, and successful graduates. Education is everything in the beauty industry, and we should never stop learning.”

Congratulations!

Jane The Virgin


Jane The Virgin

Gina Rodriguez—who stars in The CW’s newest series Jane The Virgin—is not only a talented actress, she’s also a gorgeous brunette beauty who isn’t afraid to switch-up her style! We had to find out how she keeps her locks so luscious, so we asked her ourselves in an exclusive Sophisticate’s interview for our February 2014 issue! Here’s a sneak peak of what she told us:

“I usually only wash my hair two to three times a week, not too much. It actually does better by the second or third day because the natural oils really work with my hair,” says Gina. “But I don’t use crazy products. I’ll look at a bottle and if I can’t read the ingredients then I won’t put it in my hair. I love Moroccan Oil, any of those yummy oils do really well in my hair because it’s very thick and sucks it up.”

On Jane The Virgin, Gina stars as Jane Villanueva—a 23-year-old student, engaged to a hard-working detective named Michael—who’s saving herself for marriage. However, her life is flipped upside down when she visits the doctor for a routine check-up and she’s accidentally artificially inseminated with a specimen meant for a patient in the next room! 

Be sure to check out Gina on Jane The Virgin—tonight at 9/8c on The CW—and look out for Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide’s February issue to hit stands for more hair secrets from the stunning star!

Golden Eye

For the Alexis Mabille show at Paris Fashion Week, MAC makeup artist Carole Colombani created a “’70s inspired bronze attitude,” complete with a metallic eye. We love it! And in case you want to start practicing the look before the holidays arrive, here’s the step-by-step for creating these gorgeous peepers…

1. Groundwork Pro Longwear Paint Pot was applied over eyes for a neutral taupe base.

2. Copper Sparkle Pigment was applied and drawn through the lash line up into the crease in a football shape over the eye, with a soft-sharp shape in each corner to accentuate.

3. MAC Pro Gold Pigment was mixed with MAC Pro Water Base Mixing Medium and applied over the entire eyelid for added dimension.

4. Haute & Naughty Lash was thinly applied through the upper lashes to lightly define. Gold leaf accents were applied to the inner corners of eyes.

5. To finish, brows were filled with Eye Brows Pencils as needed and followed with Clear Brow Set to groom and perfect.

STAR STYLE CELEBRATION!

Have you checked out our anniversary issue on sale now at newsstands everywhere? If not, you won’t want to miss all of the fabulous celebrity interviews {yes, exclusive!} featuring favorite beauty secrets, including supermodel Gisele Bundchen (pictured here). For her full look, the beautiful celeb says after she showers she applies conditioner to her hair, passing her “fingers through it and letting my hair dry naturally.” Doesn’t really love combing or brushing after that! Aha!

Julianne’s DWTS Style!

Julianne Hough wore a pretty braided upsweep last night for her judging duties on Dancing With The Stars. We thought it was way cute—and evidently so did Julianne, who Instagrammed this photo, along with the note, “#dwts loved my hair makeup and dress.” We have to admit one of the reasons we’re tuning in each week is to see what style vibe Julianne has going… You?

THE GLAMOUROUS LIFE

Miss Jessie J shows off a fab selfie on Instagram that shows what goes into getting glam. The hair! The makeup! You look gorgeous, darling!

HAIRCOLOR TRANSFORMATIONS!


As we age, we sometimes find that our hair has become drier or thinner than when we were younger. The condition of our hair can reflect our overall state of health. And when using color to cover gray, it’s even more important to use the right kind of color to keep our hair conditioned, full of body and radiant. Having our hair stylist use Matrix ColorInsider High Coverage Reflects makes it easy by providing total gray coverage and helping to transform dull, lifeless locks into vibrant, colorful tresses! ColorInsider is a no-ammonia, precision permanent haircolor that maximizes high-definition color results with minimum stress to the hair’s cuticle. The shade palette offers vibrant reds, cool modern neutral tones, and rich browns. The result: A beautiful transformation that will have our manes feeling smoother and shinier than before.
