Get The Look – The Textured Bob


Kriten Wiig Hairstyle at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards
We loved seeing all the textured bobs at the 2014 Emmy Awards!
Stars like Kristen WiigJulianne Hough, and Kate Mara all looked gorgeous with this chic, purposefully messy style.
This look works day or night, and is incredibly easy to duplicate!
1. Using a medium-size curling iron, curl 2-inch sections of hair, starting at the crown, without curling the ends. Alternate the direction of the curl with each section.
2. Flip hair upside down and work a small amount of volumizing mousse or dry shampoo into the roots to add volume.
3. Flip hair back over, and tousle hair with your fingers as needed to break up the curls and get the desired level of messiness. 
4. Apply a small amount of pomade to just the ends of a few sections of hair, to create a piecey texture, and finish with your favorite hairspray.

HOW-TO: Create an A-List Faux Bob

Faux Bob
This story is via ModernSalon.com

Jennifer Anniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jenny McCarthy and Chelsea Handler are just some of the A-listers with sexy new bobs. It’s a fresh look for spring/summer, but some clients just aren’t into the big chop. Ruth RocheArtistic Ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care, suggests creating a faux bob using braids and lacing to take the length up – it will put a spring in any girl’s step. See the video on HERE!

“A faux bob is a great look to offer a client for a special event, it’s not going to be a look they want to tackle every day,” says Roche.

STEP 1: Section the top area of the head and pin up.

STEP 2: The bottom hair will be braided into four vertical sections with three strand braids – right over center, left over center, etc., adding to both sides as you go and securing an elastic about 4” from the bottom of each section. This flattens the area, creates a base for pinning and brings the length up.

STEP 3: Tuck the braids up and secure with a pin, leaving the last 4” to hang.

STEP 4: Lace ends to shorten and expand hair to spread it out.

STEP 5: Drop the top portion of hair, lace it to shorten the length and gather and pin hair up so the ends are roughly the same length as the ends of the braids.

STEP 6: Any shorter top layers or fringe (depending on length/type of original haircut) can be arranged to fall over the previous layers to blend.

STEP 7: Finish with Pureology Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for soft touchable hold

Oscars 2014: Best of the Boys

 

Via ModernSalon.com – At the 2014 Academy Awards, the leading ladies might have stolen the show, but the Oscar men definitely gave them a run for their money. While we bid adieu to the man bun seen at The Golden Globes, this year’s Oscar style went dapper with delightfully tailored, neatly coiffed men’s looks. Here, are a few of our favorites.

THE SIDEPART: A classic and clean cut with a precision sidepart. This look features sides of the hair that are kept longer and not as tailored.

Manic Panic: Meet Founders Snooky and Tish

It all started in 1977 when sisters Snooky and Tish Bellomo offered interesting, fun and eclectic items in their St. Mark’s Place store in NYC. No other store could compete with their hot and fun beauty products so the sisters ran with it…especially their fun hair colors. Credited with beginning the trend (and a leader in the category), devoted fans still count on Manic Panic to help them express their own color wheel. Cyndi Lauper, a fan of the yellow, once called in a Manic “Panic” as she was low on her stash.

When not attending trade shows, Snooky and Tish (not hairdressers) perform as back up singers in a rock band, but it appears their true passion is sporting vibrant hair colors. Snooky always stays in the blue family while Tish stays pinkish, but loves to play around.

MODERN caught up with the ever fabulous Snooky and Tish to learn about their own shades and to learn more them. They really are fantastic.

THE OSCARS INSIDE SCOOP: Interview With Chris McMillan

Julia Roberts

Living Proof Spokesperson and Celebrity Stylist Chris McMillan is a regular hairdresser for Hollywood A listers and this year he created the Oscar look for Kate Hudson, the beauty at the top of everyone’s “HITS” list. Above and beyond her gorgeous Versace gown, Hudson sported the winning “do” of the night, soft, elegant, long side swept waves.

I got a chance to chat with McMillan the morning after the awards show to learn more about his “hits” and “misses”. Ever the gentleman, McMillan did not want to find fault with any single finish (although he DID say he would love to get “hold of Jennifer Lawrence to give her something a bit more age appropriate…younger”), but he does offer some insight and his fave trends from the Oscars.

“No one leaves her house unless she feels she looks good,” he told me. “But humidity really did play a factor this year. As you know it was raining all day and some of the artists had to go heavy with product or totally change the look to be safe.” For Hudson, McMillan went heavy with Living Proof Flex (“It is my must have and use product”) and went big. “I mean BIG,” he says. “I knew it would fall a bit in the car and did that so it would be perfect by the time she hit the red carpet.” McMillan armed Hudson with a comb and a can of Flex to keep her locks in place for the six hour Oscar red carpet and ceremony. “I was not with her for the show so she had to do her own touch up backstage before she went onstage to present.”

As far as his own “hits” list, McMillan says “I come from the school of ‘touchable’ hair…never helmets… and my favorites all fall into that category.” McMillan offers his favorite looks from the night:

FAVE SHORT LOOKS: Charlize Theron. “It was effortless and elegant.”

FAVE UPDO: Meryl Streep. “So simple. I loved her low chignon.” (McMillan also loved Julia Roberts chignon)

FAVE HAIR ACCESSORY: For McMillan it was a no-brainer…”I loved how Lupita Nyong’o used her headband as jewelry.”

FAVE LONG LOOK: Kate Hudson. “I hate to say it…because I did it…but it was perfect and really expressed the trend well. It was modern and fashionable,” and far from a helmet.
