Get the Look: Shakira for 2014 FIFA World Cup Closing Ceremony

Get the Look: Shakira for 2014 FIFA World Cup Closing Ceremony

I confess I didn’t understand very much about the World Cup. I knew there were hot guys doing a lot of running and jumping and emoting. I knew said hot guys were prone to crying at the end of the match. And I knew that everyone in every bar I went to for seemingly weeks now was very excited about every last minute of everything that happened. But now it’s over, and I can discuss one thing I did understand — that Shakira, not shockingly, looked amazing at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Closing Ceremony as she performed La la la (Brazil 2014). Check out how Pantene Celebrity Stylist Kim Kimble created her look: Wash and condition hair with the Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Nourishing Shampoo and Silkening Conditioner to lock in moisture for smooth...

Steal the Look: Olivia Wilde at Third Person Premiere

Steal the Look: Olivia Wilde at Third Person Premiere

I’ve been such a fan of Olivia Wilde since her days on House (13 wasn’t on nearly enough episodes!), and she looked lovely at the premiere of her new movie, Third Person. Celebrity Stylist Rebekah Forecast worked with her natural texture to create soft waves that perfectly framed her face. “It’s sticky and humid out, so I didn’t want her hair to look or feel too heavy or weighed down,” said Forecast. “I wanted to give her a style that enhanced her natural wave and looked smooth and effortless.” Here are Rebekah’s tips to get chic loose waves at home: 1.       Part dry hair down the center and mist with the Herbal Essences Tea-Lightfully Clean Blow Dry Prep Mist to get hair damp while also adding in a bit of...

Steal the Look: Giada De Laurentiis at her Vegas restaurant opening!

I’m headed to Vegas  a week from tomorrow — so obviously it’s very much on my mind! It’s on celebrity chef and Clairol Natural Instincts spokesperson Giada De Laurentiis’s mind as well, as she celebrated the opening of her first restaurant “Giada” in Las Vegas last night. For the big night, Giada’s look was inspired by the art and colors threaded throughout her restaurant, designed to feel like you’re dining in Giada’s home. Julie Morgan, celebrity makeup artist and longtime friend of Giada De Laurentiis, got her hair and makeup ready for the event. Here’s how: Giada’s hair was freshly colored with Clairol Natural Instincts Amber Shimmer (a shade change for Giada) which gave her hair a gorgeous light golden brown...

Summer Prep: How To Get the Right Hair Removal Timeline So Your Razor and Your Brazilian Work Together

Note: This article is sponsored, part of a partnership with Gillette Venus, and also appears on their website. We don’t know about you – but no matter how many times we get them, pre-bikini wax apprehension is akin to dental visits in their shudder factor. However, as we get closer to summer (and bikini season) many of us are opting for pre-beach Brazilian waxes. Brazilians are a whole other ball of wax – pun totally intended – for those of us used to the immediacy and ease of shaving. Personally, my biggest issue when waxing is dealing with the regrowth time between waxes. The whole reason we get bikini waxes is to be perfectly hairless during bikini season – and then we have a month between waxing appointments! Shave the distance It’s a bit of a...
