If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Jennifer Lopez & Her Beehive/Ratsnest Hairdo

I’m usually behind (pun intended) J Lo when it comes to her fashion and beauty choices, but I don’t know how I feel about the beehive/ratsnest hairstyle she wore to the UK premiere of her new film, The Back-Up Plan.

One minute I’m all “Homegirl should have had a back-up plan for that do.” The next minute, I think it’s the fiercest red carpet hair I’ve seen in a long while. Who knows…maybe the hairstyle had nothing to do with style at all, and her exaggerated bun was just a ruse to sneak her toddler twins, Max and Emme, into the movie without paying. Damn, Jenny, I know movie tickets are ridiculously high and all, but you didn’t have to do all this!

But don’t get me started on that dress. I realize that it’s Lanvin, but it might as well be the winner of a Project Runway trash bag challenge.

Um, why?

Yes, braids are in. But I don’t think Shanna Moakler got the memo that side braids are all the rage. Hopefully she just got back from Jamaica – because, otherwise, there is no reason for this foolishness.

mmwmd large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Bronzer How To

Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

Hello Mario!


My question is about bronzer. Actually, I have a few questions. I am so confused! First, how do you choose your perfect shade of bronzer? Second, what is the best technique for applying powder bronzer? And do you have any favorites you can recommend?

Thanks a lot!
Lizzie

Hi Lizzie,

When chosing a shade of bronzer, you should consider the following: dark skin tones look best with bronzers that have red in them. Lighter skin usually looks good with a more pale/pinkish bronzer. When applying bronzer, I like to frame the entire face. Sweep the bronzer along the hairline, on hollows of the cheeks and along your jawline. Don’t forget to apply a bit to the neck as well.

Because I use bronzer pretty much on most of the face, I prefer to go with a non-shimmery, powder bronzer. My faves are Smashbox Bronze Lights Bronzer in Suntan Matte* and Dior Bronze Matte Sunshine SPF 20. If you’re looking to achieve a bronze look but want to glow as well, try Eye M Glam highlighter at Giella.com*. Apply it on the cheekbones, inner corner of eyes, bridge of nose and on brow bones. It has a golden glow that looks amazing with bronzer. Thanks for visiting MMwM!

xo,
Mario

Joan Jett’s Hairstylist’s Tips On How To Get A Shag

 Joan Jetts Hairstylists Tips On How To Get A Shag

Joan Jett’s hairstylist, Sally Hershberger, shares tips on how to get a shag.

What is a shag?
SH: “A shag is really any layered cut. From longer pieces like Gisele, to something choppier like Joan’s hair.”

Why is it so popular?
SH: It’s a very versatile style that can work with many different hair types.”

What do you ask your stylist for if you want a shag?

SH: “If you want to take the look in a more severe direction, ask for a shorter style that has lots of layers of all lengths for a choppy, rockstar look. A more subtle version would be something a little less drastic – longer, softer layers.”

How do you style a shag?
SH: “The key to a great shag is using the right products. Most women have layers in their hair but, until my Shagg line, there was never a line of products designed to define and enhance their layers. To really make the most of layers, use lightweight, residue-free formulas so your layers aren’t weighed down.”

Sally’s styling tips:
1) First, rough, dry hair.
2) Use Sally’s Shagg Spray on dry hair and blast with a blow dryer.
3) Shape with your hands, which is much easier than using a brush to create texture and pieciness, for a great messy, sexy look in seconds.
4) To refresh the look, give the style a few quick additional spritzes.
5) Further define your layers with a gel. Sally uses her Shagg Rocks Liquid Gel to create further separation. Just pull a little through the hair using your hands.
