For 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.
I 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?
‘s Beauty Editor, Gwen Flamberg, demonstrates how to replicate a Rihanna-inspired makeup look that will have you turning heads at all of your holiday shindigs.
Yesterday, Nicole Richie popped by the Cosa Mesa Bloomingdale’s to promote holiday pieces from her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line – and debuted a brunette do.
After the event, Nicole tweeted “OH! & P.S. I went brunette. I feel smarter already.”
Last month, I told you that Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga were named the latest faces of the MAC AIDS Fund. The ad campaign, called “From Our Lips,” will launch on February 25, 2010 – but here is a sneak peek!
MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick and Viva Glam Cyndi Lipstick will hit real and virtual shelves on March 18, 2010, with all proceeds going to the MAC AIDS Fund.
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.
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).
The 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.
