Steal the Look: Gina Rodriguez at the Academy Awards

The stars were out full force last night for the Academy Awards, the biggest red carpet of the award season. Celebrity hairstylist Paul Norton gave Gina Rodriguez a sophisticated and timeless up do for the 2015 Academy Awards. “Gina’s hair is versatile, she can look great with any hairstyle but today we wanted to give her a glamorous look for the Oscars,” said Norton.

Steal the Look: Beyonce at the Grammy Awards

Steal the Look: Beyonce at the Grammy Awards

The Grammy Awards have always been my favorite of all the award show red carpets — the stars take more risks, show up a bit edgier, and crazy things are sure to happen as the night goes on. Last night’s festivities did not support, and one of the most gorgeous looks of the night was, not surprisingly, Queen Bey herself. Pantene Celebrity Stylist Kim Kimble shares how to re-create Beyonce’s loose, edgy waves. 1. To achieve  Beyonce’s soft waves, start with clean hair using a lightweight regimen that won’t weigh hair down, will add volume and prevent frizz, says Kimble. 2. “Use a volumizing product all over hair, like the Pantene Pro-V Full & Strong PowerFULL Body Booster Spray—it adds fullness and shine from root to tip, and is...

Steal the Look: Gwyneth Paltrow at Los Angeles premiere of Mortdecai

The ageless Gwyneth Paltrow was styled by celebrity stylist David Babaii for the Los Angeles premiere of Mortdecai. The weather was uncharacteristically cold but humid for a winter LA night, so David used John Frieda Frizz Ease KeraFLEX Flexible Hold Hairspray to keep Gwyneth’s hair looking smooth and flawless all night. “It’s a dry spray—not wet or crunchy—so it maintained her style but always appeared effortless,” he explained. The look was clean and California – pretty classic for  Gwyneth. First, Babaii sectioned hair into pieces and parted hair in the center. Next, he blowdried hair bone straight with a round brush for a smooth, sleek finish.   He finished by spritzing new John Frieda Frizz Ease KeraFLEX Flexible Hold Hairspray and...

Get the Look:  Naomi Watts at the Golden Globes

And, with a whisper (or maybe a loud anvil to our skulls), red carpet award season has begun. Tonight for the Golden Globes, Naomi Watts’ look was ceated by Cervando for Moroccanoil. “I created chic, modern, slightly-retro waves to perfectly compliment Naomi’s personality and style.

Then use a comb to create a deep...

Steal the Look: Maggie Q at 2014 Met Gala

For last night’s Met Gala, celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel  wanted to give Maggie Q a classic updo, but with a very modern twist. “The Zac Posen dress that Maggie chose had such great volume and drama below the waist and a high, sleek neckline, that I immediately starting pulling from Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly!” says Abergel.

The Time I Wore a Shower Cap in a Temazcal (And Realized I was Missing the Whole Point)

The Time I Wore a Shower Cap in a Temazcal (And Realized I was Missing the Whole Point)

In honor of today being Hair Appreciation Day, I realized it may be appropriate timing to share a story of just how ridiculous I am. The setting for this story is Cabo San Lucas, where I visited earlier this week as a guest of Los Cabos Tourism Board. The visit was luxury themed, and we enjoyed an absolutely sinful amount of luxury — enough to make even the most grounded of individuals feel like something of a glutton. It was fitting then that our final full day in Los Cabos began with a detox in a traditional Mexican Temazcal at Pueblo Bonito Pacífica Resort and Spa — one that, beforehand, I was totally apprehensive about. My mother raised me with two very important life edicts that I’ve observed to this day: 1 – Avoid excessive sweating...

Always a bombshell (couldn’t resist!), Kate Upton looked hot last night at the MTV Movie Awards, in a style created by Peter Butler for Moroccanoil. “When envisioning the hair look that I wanted to create to compliment Kate’s Versace mini-dress, I was inspired by the works of Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin as well as the strong and powerful 80’s woman a la Cindy Crawford and Jerry Hall— I wanted big, polished hair,” Butler says.  “To create lots of volume, hold and lift, I began by applying Moroccanoil Root Boost to the roots of Kate’s damp hair and then blanketed her locks with Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse. Using the Moroccanoil Paddle Brush, I blow dried the hair in large sections,” says Butler, who then divided the hair...
