Rachel McAdams Sherlock Holmes Premiere Hairstyle

rachel+mcadams+sherlock+holmes+premiere+3 Rachel McAdams Sherlock Holmes Premiere HairstyleFor the world premiere event of the highly-anticipated Sherlock Holmes movie, Sebastian Stylist Design Team Member Thomas Dunkin styled actress Rachel McAdams‘ tresses to complement her Grecian-inspired gown for a red carpet look that radiated grace and glam. All eyes were on Sherlock’s leading lady’s asymmetrical, loosely textured side braid.

Thomas shares styling tips for recreating Rachel’s red carpet look at home:

1) Start by applying a volumizing product like Sebastian Professional Texturizer to wet hair. Blow dry in sections, and pin each section in medium and large sized Velcro rollers throughout whole head and allow to set for 5-10 minutes.
2) Allow to cool then take down rollers, and spray hair with a dry shampoo for added texture.
3) Emulsify a small dab of Sebastian Professional Microweb Fiber between palms and run through top of hair. Backcomb front section and manipulate for height and volume. Secure with pins.
4) French braid bottom half of hair starting behind left ear and pin random remaining pieces into braid for haphazard, playful positioning.
5) Finish the look with Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce for tousled movement and controlled hold.

Willow Smith’s Rihanna Hairstyle

jaden+and+willow+smith Willow Smiths Rihanna HairstyleI have issues with children sporting grown-up hairstyles. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for children expressing their individuality – but when I see toddlers and young kids with over-styled hair, I can’t help but feel that it’s the wackadoo parents expressing themselves through their offspring.

So when I saw photos of Will, Jada and their brood at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert, I threw up my hands. Jaden’s untamed afro appears that it might swallow his head whole, but he’s 11 and that’s the kind of style the kids are into right now. Willow’s hair, on the other hand, is a whole nuther story.

I don’t care who the parents are…no 9-year-old should have a Rihanna haircut. I don’t know what Jada was thinking to let someone shave half of her baby’s head. That poor child is gonna have one hell of a time growing that mess out. You would have thought Jada would have learned something from Cassie’s tress transgressions.

What are your thoughts on minors with major hairstyles?

Lookin’ Good: Adam Lambert Sans Makeup In People Magazine

adam+lambert+with+and+without+makeup Lookin Good: Adam Lambert Sans Makeup In People Magazine

Have you seen the latest issue of People? I was absolutely shocked when I spied this pic of Adam Lambert, without his trademark pankcake foundation and kohl rimmed eyes. Who would’ve thought that he was hiding such an adorable baby face beneath all of that theatrical makeup? I mean, just look at his eyes…they’re jumping right off of the computer screen! Glambert really ought to give the guyliner an extended vacay.

Lavender Lip Trend

lilac+lips Lavender Lip Trend

Have you noticed a lotta lavender lips lately? I have. Lady Gaga kicked off the trend in February when she paired a light purple pout with an oversized hair bow. Since then, they’ve appeared sporadically on the Fashion Week runways. But now I can’t help but notice that they’re cropping up everywhere.

New Moon star Christian Serratos (who plays Angela) wore lilac lipstick to the movie’s premiere. And Alicia Keys sports a lavender gloss in her new video, Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart (photo below).

mac+syrup+lipstick+and+foolishly+fab+plushglass Lavender Lip TrendThe look is like an oxygen-deprived pale pink mouth. To create a lavender lip to compliment my caramel complexion, I use the duo seen at left: MAC Lipstick in Syrup and MAC Plushglass in Foolishly Fab (which has, foolishly, been discontinued).

To steal the look, I recommend a pale pink or lavender lipstick with a sheer lilac gloss on top. For a look that’s more wearable, just a gloss will do the trick. Try: MAC Cremesheen Glass in Ever So Rich, MAC Lustreglass in Flashmode or Morning Glory, or MAC Dazzleglass in Funtabulous.

Beautyblender: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

Let me speak frankly. If you’re applying your foundation with anything but the Beautyblender sponge, you’re doing it wrong. Look…I don’t mean to put you on blast, but I’m here to give it to you straight. And when I tell you that Beautyblender is, hands down, the best foundation applicator, I speak the truth.

The point of foundation is to fool the eye of the beholder into thinking you were blessed with a flawless complexion. But if you’re applying it incorrectly, or with inferior tools, you just look like you’re wearing a makeup mask. And who wants that? Nobody, that’s who. The difference between foundation that looks like foundation and foundation that looks like skin is Beautyblender.

Since I was introduced to Beautyblender in 2007, we have been in a monogamous relationship. It is the only tool I use to apply my foundation. Invented by Hollywood makeup artists, this sponge leaves you with a professional finish. Applying makeup with fingers or sharp-edged triangular sponges can waste makeup and can leave visible streaks. Beautyblender’s elliptical shape makes allows you to access hard-to-reach areas with ease. Its suede-like texture repels product, so your foundation actually ends up on your face – rather than absorbed by the sponge. And its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your makeup dazzling and undetectable.

I even use it to apply my concealer and cream blushes. And if you have problem skin, I can’t recommend anything better for magically disguising blemishes and hyperpigmentation. Beautyblender is reusable (perfect for those green gals), latex-free, non-allergenic, and odor free…and makes a great holiday gift.

Give your beauty-loving BFF the gift of perfect skin with the Hot Pink Holiday Kit, which includes Beautyblender and 3 oz Blendercleanser in an organza drawstring carry pouch….tagged for gift giving!

“I had fun glamming Kim up for her Vegas birthday,” he said. “I did her makeup that night while she was laying down on this big, comfortable spa table/reclining chair and it was actually great doing makeup that way. It’s more exciting when they can’t see what I’m doing the whole time because they get surprised at the end.”   (more…)

New Moon Star Gets Her Hair Twilighted

Christian+Serratos+twilights+1 New Moon Star Gets Her Hair TwilightedWell-known in the industry for his cutting-edge style, hairstylist Stuart Gavert was contacted to do the hair color for the cast of the major motion picture Twilight – including Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart!

Earlier this month, New Moon‘s own Christian Serratos (who plays Angela) visited the Gavert Atelier Salon and received her very own set of “twilights.”

Inspired by the movie and its stars, Gavert launched a concept of color on highlighting called twilights; the idea is to create highlights that can prolong visits to the salon for touch-ups (perfect for long months of filming) and to use a process that is not damaging to the hair.

For her day of beauty, the super sweet actress preferred pizza and Diet Coke for lunch and had a fun time being pampered.
