Britney Spears Is Blonde Again

britney+spears+blonde Britney Spears Is Blonde AgainLook who’s blonde again! It’s Britney, b*tch.

After months of rocking a darker do, Brit Brit decided to lighten up. So, this past weekend, she went to Nine Zero One salon in West Hollywood and changed up her color…which looks great on her, I think.

Even more remarkable are her new extensions. This is the first time I can remember them not looking embarrassingly busted. By golly, they actually look like real hair growing out of Britney’s head…not like Sean Preston and Jayden James wove mommy’s weave in during arts & crafts class.

I give Britney’s new do 3 enthusiastic thumbs up.

New York Fashion Week, Fall 2010: Funky, Chunky Haircolor

Cynthia+Rowley+fashion+week New York Fashion Week, Fall 2010: Funky, Chunky Haircolor

Backstage at New York Fashion Week, my girl Megan McIntyre (from Daily Makeover) recognized an emerging trend for fall 2010: funky, chunky haircolor.

“Looks like it’s time to break out the Manic Panic. The big beauty trend for hair at Fashion Week was bright, chunky streaks of color that brought to mind punk-inspired street style circa 1996. At the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2010 fashion show, Eva Scrivo for Wella Professionals custom colored hair extensions in shades of emerald, lapis, amethyst, navy and turquoise to replicate the rich jewel tones present in the collection. Each hair extension was completely saturated with professional salon haircolor and then woven into the hair and styled, creating an element of surprise and intrigue when models hit the runway.

He used Streekers to color hair extensions in shades of hot pink, purple and green, then pulled them back into the models’ slightly mussed ponytails to give a “downtown, cool feel,” to the otherwise equestrian look.

We think this is one trend that just might hit the trifecta of translating in all three worlds: runway, red carpet and real world. This is the second season funky color has been featured at Fashion Week (the girls at the Spring 2010 Proenza Schouler fashion show rocked lovely lilac streaks) and Lady Gaga recently caused a stir at the Grammys with her own spin on the Crayola color trend. Adding a bright streak of color to your coif is an easy way to add a hip edge to your regularly scheduled hairstyle without a huge commitment. Now all you really have to decide is which happy hue you want to adorn your hair with.”

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.

Pastis: Breakfast of Beauty Champions

amber+nancy+jason+backe+daneen+pastis Pastis: Breakfast of Beauty ChampionsLast week while in town for New York Fashion Week, I shared a delish breakfast with beauty friends Amber, Nancy and my mane man, Jason Backe.

You might remember Jason from a post earlier this year, when the two of us hung out watching the Grammys – and he up and decided to dye my hair.

Jason is one of the most sought after colorists in New York, where he co-owns the Ted Gibson Salon. His list of celebrity clients (Anne Hathaway, Renée Zellweger, Amerie, Idina Menzel, Eltra Rossalini, and Lake Bell) reads like an issue of Us Magazine.

As if it’s even possible, Jason’s schedule book is about to get even more, well, booked. In the October 2009 issue of Allure Magazine, he was named “the best of the best.” If you’re in or passing through the NYC area, do yourself a favor and make an appointment. Get in where you fit in. Jason’s worth the wait.
