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.

Joan Jett’s hairstylist, Sally Hershberger, shares tips on how to get a shag.
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?
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.
Jennifer Lopez was dazzling on the Oscar red carpet, wearing a beautiful Armani Prive dress, accented by an elegantly texturized updo created by master stylist Robert Vetica. The look was very modern and sophisticated.
To create the style, Vetica started by applying Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream on wet hair to create smoothness and shine. After blowdrying hair straight he sectioned hair off and created two ponytails, an inch apart, one on top of the other to create volume below the crown of the head.
Next, Vetica used a curling iron on each ponytail to create texture, and then brushed them out for width and volume. After creating the shape of the updo, he strategically pulled out stands throughout the look to create a modern textured effect using flyaways around the forehead to further soften. He then finished with new argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray.

Charlize Theron’s Oscar hair looked extraordinary this year. Inspired by the classic shape of her gown, her longtime hairstylist, Enzo Angileri, created a style that emphasized delicate, enduring beauty.
“To create this look I needed a very smooth texture and lots of natural-looking shine,” explained Angileri. He used new argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Light, made especially for fine and light colored hair, on wet strands before blow-drying to ensure the hair itself looked perfected. “After that about 50% of my work was done,” he said, “and I had a texture that was workable, healthy-looking and naturally beautiful.”
Angileri then created a low, classic bun by rolling hair around clockwise, held in place with several bobby pins, to complete the classic polished look.
He finished the style with a light misting of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray to give hair an extra touch of red carpet glamour for the cameras. The look was held in place with new Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for a firm, flexible hold.

Lancôme abassador Kate Winslet looked resplendent at the Academy Awards yesterday, clad in an Yves Saint Laurent gown and bold jewelry from Tiffany & Co.
Kate’s long-time makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, topped off the look with soft, ethereal makeup. Both the eyes and the lips got equal attention on this Oscar winner. Shimmering, champagne-pewter shades highlighted the eyes, while very saturated mascara delivered that extra definition. A pop of pink blush on her cheeks gave Kate just a hint of a natural flush. Jillian topped off the look with nude-pink lips.

INSPIRATION: A modern, edgy look with a young vibe
HOW TO GET THE LOOK: Campora started out by applying FEKKAI Coiff String Hold Volume Mousse combing the product through the hair. He dried the hair straight using a FEKKAI Large Round Brush. He then used a 1 inch curling iron to create waves and texture. He added the FEKKAI Au Natural Dry Shampoo for extra volume and movement. He tied a number of loose braids on the sides of the head beginning half way down the strands, leaving them untied at the ends to create extra dimension to the look. He then pulled all the hair back into a low chignon and secured with large bobby pins. He finished with FEKKAI Glossing Sheer Mist for shine and FEKKAI Sheer Hold Hairspray for all night hold.
“Tonight was Sandra’s big night and she was in a happy, ethereal mood. I wanted her to look like the true movie star she is, so we went with modern classy Hollywood – dewy skin, soft eyes, and a bold classic red lip.” -Makeup Artist Angela Levin
Angela prepped Sandra’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Fluid. She then used a foundation brush to apply CHANEL Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup in Shell all over the face.
Angela created a structured brow with the soft brown powder in the limited edition Les Regards de CHANEL Palette. She lined Sandra’s eyes with the darker brown shade in the same palette. Finally, she applied three coats of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir for sexy, glamorous lashes.
To create the real focus of Sandra’s look – a gorgeous, bold red lip – Angela applied CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paris. She finished the look by gently dabbing a bit of the same lip color on the apples of Sandra’s cheeks – Angela’s signature makeup trick.
Frederic Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel wanted to bring back simplicity, with Sandra’s sleek and straight down-do. The strong side part created beautiful lines to compliment her dress. He modernized the texture of the hair by creating a sleek look, with a slight wave at the end.
Conditioned hair is very important for any sleek style. Abergel used FEKKAI Advanced Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner, leaving the conditioner on for 15 minutes. He then rinsed and towel dried the hair. Then he parted the hair in a deep side part. Abergel recommends following the arch of your brow to choose where to part your hair. He then took a large FEKKAI Round Brush and blow-dried the hair completely straight, making sure the roots were flat. Then spray with FEKKAI Sheer Hold Hairspray to 2″ sections of hair from roots to the end and use a flat iron to get a bone straight effect. To finish the look, Abergel took a 1 1/4″ inch curling iron and lightly curled the ends of the hair for a nice slight wave and tucked the bangs behind the ear. To complete the look he added the FEKKAI Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum to create a sleek finish.
Celebrity makeup artist Sara Glick created Best Supporting Actress Nominee Anna Kendrick’s beauty look for the Oscar’s tonight using Arcona skincare and tarte cosmetics.
Inspiration: Youthful, ethereal beauty – think soft, natural glowing skin.
Arcona Skincare – Prep: “Anna has beautiful skin and doesn’t need much to make it glow. I prepped her skin with a light, all natural moisturizer to help it stay hydrated throughout the night.”
* Prepped with Arcona’s Magic White Ice to protect, nourish and hydrate skin.
tarte Makeup – Cheeks: “For a natural flush, I accented Anna’s cheek bones with a coral shade.”
* Dabbed and blended tarte’s natural cheek stain in eco-cheek on the apples of her cheeks.
tarte Makeup – Lips: “I wanted to create a soft, healthy pink lip with a touch of shine.”
* tarte’s LipSurgence natural lip stain in charmed (light pink) as a base. Topped with tarte’s double-ended natural lipglosses in jake & samantha (used the samantha side-pale cotton candy pink) for added shine.
Arcona Skincare – Finish: “I finished with a light spritz of lavender mist for added hydration and an extra dose of calming with aromatherapy.”
* Set the look with Arcona’s Lavendar Hydrasol for a fresh and dewy complexion.
Anna Kendrick wore a romantic blush-colored Eli Saab gown on the Oscar red carpet, complimented by an effortlessly elegant, modern updo designed by stylist Craig Gangi.
Gangi, inspired by the graceful off-the-shoulder look, created an updo highlighting softly waved texture accenting healthy hair with natural-looking shine. He first applied argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to add moisture and give hair a soft hold that was smooth as well as frizz-free and static-free.
After blow-drying hair straight, Gangi used a medium sized curling iron to create loose, natural waves. He then pulled strands back, leaving just enough hair at the nape of the neck to create a small ponytail, and shaped a loose, undone textured bun.
To add a touch of drama, he went back to weave three small braids with the remaining hair, then again braided the three with each other. Finally he circled the braid around the bun. After pinning the style, he sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to hold the look in place without stiffness, and misted the final updo with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for additional boost of red carpet shine.
Moroccanoil is sold in fine salons and spas.
Earlier this month, when I was in New York for Fashion Week, I got my hair did at Red Door Spas Blogger Lounge at the W Hotel in Times Square. My friend (and Fashion Week roomie, above), Lianne, partnered with Red Door Spas to create space where bloggers could stop – between shows, meetings and events – and relax, recharge (phones too) and get all gussied up.
Thanks to Zahir Zihani, Creative Director of the Red Door Spas, and his team (including the adorable and amazingly talented Billy Dee Williams, who did my hair), every gal left there with head-turning hair. Forget reporting from backstage…we looked like we were ready to sashay down the runway.
A rear view of my do
Marina‘s side updo definitely made the best-tressed list.
