Two Worlds. One Dream.


Stand Up To Cancer Jennifer Hudson Genentech

Former American Idol star, Grammy Award-winning singer and Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) Ambassador Jennifer Hudson has joined forces with SU2C and Genentech for their latest campaign, entitled: “Two Worlds. One Dream.”

The public service announcement, which appears in print, digital, radio and broadcast media, highlights the incredible work being done by today’s leading cancer researchers and stresses the importance of supporting innovative research. The campaign charges everyone to unite in the fight against the collection of diseases known as cancer, which take the lives of nearly 1,600 Americans every day. 

“I, like many others, have friends and loved ones who have been affected by cancer,” says the songstress. “I’m proud to join Genentech and Stand Up To Cancer on this PSA campaign, which showcases cancer researchers as the rock stars they really are and highlights the importance of supporting their vital work.”

For more information on the campaign, visit standup2cancer.com.

DALLAS IS ON THE AIR!


Dallas, Dallas, Texas

The hit TNT show Dallas was back on TV last night and we couldn’t be more excited! The season 3 mid-season finale aired in April and left some shocking plot twists, so between the captivating drama and the good looking cast (we can never stop staring at Jordana Brewster’s gorgeous brunette locks and Jesse Metcalfe’s sexy smile), we know we’re in for an amazing second half of the season.

Did you watch? Let us know! Dallas airs on TNT on Monday nights at 9 p.m. E/T.

She Said… Jennifer Garner


Actress Jennifer Garner has held many roles in the span of her career. She’s proved girls can kick butt in Elektra and showcased her youthful side in 13 Going on 30. Jennifer also has another important gig, being a full-time mom alongside hubby (and soon-to-be Batman) Ben Affleck. With a life so busy, she still makes time to maintain gorgeous locks, even if she does misplace an appliance every now and then…

“I’m always begging to wear my hair up. At home, I don’t even know where my blow-dryer is.”

JENNIFER GARNER

Portfolio Presentation


Allow your confidence shine through with these strong and sophisticated silhouettes crafted by Amanda Tua at Noddy’s on King Salon in Sydney, Australia. Get ready for true beauty in black and white…

retroRetro Smooth
There’s nothing quite like the allure of a chic, short snip! Here, blunt-cut smooth strands extend to the ears while striking, straight-across fringe rests above the eyebrows. Gorgeous!

asymmetricAsymmetric Attitude
Give off a little bit of hair attitude with this tousled asymmetric crop. Layered locks are swept to the side while piecey fringe grazes the eyes. Sections of longer lengths on one side—from short to extra-long—make this snip extra unique!

tousledTousled Texture
This sillhouette is all about texture, texture, texture! Sassy, sleek tresses are smoothed forward in all directions mimicking the appearance of bold bangs. A touch of volume and gorgeous movement help complete the look.

wavesWondrous Waves
Who says mermaids can only have stunning waves? In this fabulous mane, long brunette lengths fall from a classic center part before tumbling into voluminous soft waves that scream sophistication!

Kerastase Paris Discipline 2

Dance is the ultimate expression of discipline in grace—which is why Kerastase Paris has tapped prima ballerina Diana Vishneva to be the face of Discipline, their newest line.

“My life is all about discipline,” says Vishneva, who is a prima ballerina with American Ballet Theatre and the Mariinsky Theatre. “Ever since I enrolled at the ballet school, I work 10 hours a day… That sums up my own attitude, up to the slightest detail of movement: I will keep working on it relentlessly—until it feels perfect today. Being a perfectionist myself, I feel that I can only relate to a brand that is equally demanding towards itself and women’s beauty.”

Kerastase Paris DisciplineDiscipline is an in-salon ritual and at-home regimen that masters smoothness with movement to tame frizzy hair and make blow-drying faster and easier. The collection proves softness, shine and 72 hours of control to hair without adding rigidity, weighing it down or eliminating volume. The Kerastase Discipline Collection is available for purchase at salons nationwide and online.
