GHD Glamour ghd Iconic Eras of Style Giveaway!

ghd and their global brand ambassador Katy Perry are reinventing styles from the most glamorous eras to create gorgeous looks with a modern 2011 twist. The new Iconic Eras of Style limited edition collection includes three limited edition sets that allow you to reinvent iconic looks from the most dapper decades.

Inspired by old Hollywood beauty, the Glamour set allows you to create captivating soft curls straight from the 1950’s silver screen.

GHD Boho ghd Iconic Eras of Style Giveaway!

The Boho Chic set provide all of the tools you need to become a 1970’s Bohemian beauty. With soft beachy waves and a glowing natural complexion, Katy Perry encapsulates this enchanting look with radiant inner confidence.

GHD New Wave ghd Iconic Eras of Style Giveaway!

Inspired by this season’s color blocking trend, the New Wave set creates rad waves and curls. It’s an 80’s revival!

Each set includes the sleek ghd Gold Professional 1″ styler. The styler has contoured plates that create straight and curved styles. The plates heat up quickly, the device beeps when it reaches your desired temperature, and turns off after 30 minutes of inactivity – so you never have to worry that you’ve left it on and your house may be on fire. The styler comes with a plate-guard that protects the hot plates when the styler is switched off, allowing you to safely pack them away without damaging your belongings. Also included in the set are two sectioning clips and a step-by-step booklet showing you how to recreate iconic styles at home.

Each set is accompanied by a heat-resistant purse that is representative of that era: black satin evening clutch in the Glamour set, brown fringed clutch in the Boho Chic set, and black studded clutch in the New Wave set.

Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron

Sedu+Revolution+Tourmaline+Ionic+Styling+Iron Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron

When I showed up at work last week with a halo of shiny, bouncy curls, all of my co-workers wanted to know which salon I had visited. They were all very surprised when I told them that I styled my own hair – in 10 minutes, no less. They were even more shocked when I told them I didn’t own a curling iron.

So what’s my secret? Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron. It’s a three-in-one straightening, curling and wave making machine. The ultra-smooth, polished plates seals the hair cuticle and easily glide through hair, delivering high shine. The anti-slip edges capture all of the hairs, so that each section gets evenly straightened/waved/curled. The iron has adjustable temperature control that goes up to 450°F – and it heats up to the desired temp in less than 25 seconds – so even when I’m in a rush (which I always am these days), I never have to wait to style my hair.

What’s even better is that, in addition to basic black, it comes in…

PINK!

The Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron retails for $160 and is available at folica.com. Kinda pricey, I know…but when you consider that this one tool is all you’ll need to style your hair (it’s great for travel!) and how well it performs, you’ll realize that it’s worth the investment. Buy it now and you’ll thank me later.

Oscars Beauty 2011: Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett+Johansson+oscars+academy+awards+2011 Oscars Beauty 2011: Scarlett Johansson

Duffy for Frederic Fekkai styled 2011 Academy Awards presenter, Scarlett Johansson.

INSPIRATION: Duffy sought to bring out “the real Scarlett Johansson” by creating a young, sexy, modern shag with dry texture.

HOW TO:
1. Begin by applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume™ Styling Whip to towel-dried hair, working the product in from roots to ends.
2. Dry hair using Fekkai Classic Brush to create loose, tousled waves for the textured effect.
3. Apply Fekkai Full Blown Volume™ Lifting Hairspray to roots to prep the foundation
4. At the nape of the neck, spritz hair with Fekkai Coiff™ Océanique Tousled Wave Spray.
5. Using a 1 ½ inch curling iron wrap 2-3 inch sections of hair around the barrel of the iron, leaving ends out. Continue to repeat this act.
6. Take a hairdryer with nozzle attachment and blast the root of the hair for hold and volume.
7. Run fingers through the hair to break-up the waves.
8. Clamp the ends with a flat iron to flatten the curl, creating an imperfect, sleeker wave.
9. Finish the style with Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray to give a modern, edgy look.

Johansson’s Make Up Artist accentuated the star’s breathtaking beauty exclusively with products from the Dolce & Gabbana range.

He focused on eyes, shading and outlining them using The Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Stromboli 130, applying the darkest color close to the lash line on the lid and beneath the eye line. He then used the copper and bronze hues at the crease of her eye and highlighted the inner corner with a smudge of the golden tone from the palette. He finished the eyes with a sweep of The Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Gold 3 and several coats of The Volumized Lashes Mascara in Black 1 for volume and definition. For a effortless, natural glamour, he used The Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Candy 80 on Scarlett’s lips. A light dusting of The Illuminator in Eva 3 completed the look.

Speaking about the star’s glamorous look for the evening, her personal Make Up Artist said: “Scarlett was simply stunning in tones of gold and copper, offset with a sheer pink to accentuate her lips. She looked the epitome of the modern movie star.”
