Grammy Gorgeous: Pink

pink+grammys+2010 Grammy Gorgeous: PinkPink’s look at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards was a shimmering vision of modern glamour.

Stylist Marco Santini, who highlighted glistening shine to play up her platinum hair color, and define her texture and subtle grey tips, created the sophisticated red carpet look.

Santini, inspired by her silver-grey gown and the dramatic performance to come, created a unique, flowing shape that emphasized volume, height, and the illusion of movement. He accented the look with a diamond star-shaped pin.

Santini stayed with Pink after the red carpet, and was backstage waiting to quickly reproduce the look right after her stunning aerial performance of “Glitter in the Air” during which she was drenched in a shower of water.

“I had to work very quickly to restyle her look,” explained Santini. “I used Moroccanoil argan oil-infused products because I know they instantly absorb into hair, produce amazing shine, and won’t create build up. The look had to appear as fresh, light, and beautiful the second time around as it did for the red carpet.”

How Marco Santini Created Pink’s Much Discussed Look:

Step 1:
Santini started by applying Moroccanoil Treatment throughout the singer’s damp hair to create a silky-smooth shine. He placed a small amount in the palm of his hand then combed through the hair with his fingers.

Step 2:
Next Santini applied argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream from the roots through the ends for lift at the root and to give soft shine-enhancing hold, as well as create a “grip” for his brush while blow drying shape and direction.

Step 3:
After Pink’s cropped locks were blow-dried, Santini misted new argan-oil infused Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray on the outer layer and saturated several layers inside the hair from root to end. Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray leaves hair looking weightless and gives the hair glistening shine without sticky residue or build-up (especially important in this style since Santini had to reproduce the look after her Grammy performance). Santini then brushed the sides of Pink’s hair back and sculpted a rockabilly fold toward the nape of the neck.

Step 4:
He finished the look with a light mist of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray all over the hair (from a distance of 10-12 inches) for an instant boost of shine. The final touch to Pink’s Grammy look was a star-shaped diamond brooch that was fastened to the front of her hair. Santini took a small
section of hair towards the front of her head and tied it with a clear rubber band., then fastened the diamond brooch to the hair for an elegant touch.

Grammy Gorgeous: Jennifer Lopez

Volume and texture were the hallmarks of the all-one-length, below the shoulder look.

Vetica started by applying Moroccanoil Treatment on wet hair and blow-dried it smooth, creating a middle part using a large round brush for volume. He then used a 1″ curling iron, curling each section, and dragging the curled spirals down. He started in the back, working towards the front of the head and lifting her hair away from the face.

After the curled hair set, Vetica finger-brushed the look and applied Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to hold the set and add additional texture. Finally he brushed out the hair, then backcombed underneath for maximum fullness and volume. Vetica finished with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for free-moving, shine-enhancing hold.

Grammy Gorgeous: Miley Cyrus

miley+cyrus+grammys+2010 Grammy Gorgeous: Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus’ sexy textured style at the 52nd Annual Grammys was a perfect rocker chic look that played off her Herve Leger mini bandage dress and emphasized her long, natural waves.

“Miley has effortless style and taste,” said her stylist Scott Cunha, “and I always try to complement this by working with her natural hair texture, accentuating the waves and texture with a curling iron and a flat iron.”

To create the look, Cunha first applied Moroccanoil Treatment on damp hair for silky shine, smoothness and to eliminate frizz. He diffuser-dried her hair and then created a dual-textured look, first using a flat iron from the roots down, then a curling iron to wave the rest of the hair. Cunha applied Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray to her hair to separate and define, then finished with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for naturally moveable hold with shine.

Moroccanoil is sold in fine salons and spas.

Grammy Gorgeous: Nicole Kidman

nicole+kidnman+grammys Grammy Gorgeous: Nicole KidmanCelebrity hairdresser David Babaii created this romantic and elegant up-do to emphasize Nicole’s beautiful bone structure and Prada dress design.

He began by spraying her entire head with David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray, scrunching into her hair for body, lift and texture. Next, he dried her hair using a large round brush concentrating on the root area for maximum lift. Once dry, he divided tresses into 4 sections (top, sides and back leaving the nape area free). Using the H2Pro 300SE Styling Iron, he created “ribbon curls” by taking small “V” shaped partings. To achieve, wrap the hair around and inside the styling iron close to the scalp area and pull the iron down (similar to curling ribbon).

After curling the entire head, he applied some David Babaii for WildAid Hair Polish into his hands, using his fingers to loosen the curls from the mid-section to the ends only. This is done as to not disturb the texture at the top and crown area. Next, he carefully created a side part and again using his fingers to gently roll and twist hair. Pick up large sections as you continue to circle to the other side of the head and pin where needed. Finish into a messy bun and secure with additional pins. At the top area finger comb the bang area into a natural falling wave. For a long but natural lasting hold, he used David Babaii for WildAid Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray.

Kate Gosselin’s New Extensions!

kate+gosselin+hair+extensions Kate Gosselins New Extensions!

My mane man Ted Gibson is unbeweavable. Just look what he’s done to Kate Gosselin! Once mocked for her chickenbutt hairstyle, she now looks – dare I say – pretty?

Last week, it was all Ted & Kate plus hundreds of tracks. Ted spent 20 hours meticulously adding dozens of extensions to Kate’s hair.

kate+gosselin+hair+extension+ted+gibson Kate Gosselins New Extensions!“Kate was an absolute sweetheart, I loved her,” says Gibson, who also appears on the TLC show What Not To Wear. While he knew that transforming the look that launched a thousand Halloween wigs would be a challenge, Gibson reveals it was the super-short, spiky hair in the back of Kate’s notorious former hairstyle that proved most daunting. “Bonding extensions to those little hairs really took time. But in all those hours, she didn’t complain once. She was so open to whatever I suggested, and willing to try just about anything.” Well, with one notable exception: At first, Gibson reports, Kate was reluctant to let go of the thick, jaw-length shock of hair in the front of her face in favor of bangs. “She wasn’t sure about bangs,” says Gibson, “But I find many women have that one thing they’re afraid to let go of, that one ‘security blanket’ part of their look, whether it’s a fear of going shorter or darker or something. But once they finally let go and embrace the change, they always love it.”

“It’s good to have hair again,” Gosselin says. “I know this will be more upkeep than my old look, but I’m ready for it. I’m just grateful I don’t have to go through the awkward growing-out process of short hair. I get criticized for everything I do enough as it is!”

Ashley Greene’s Sherlock Holmes Premiere Hairstyle

ashley+greene+sherlock+holmes+premiere Ashley Greenes Sherlock Holmes Premiere HairstyleCelebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson styled Ashley Greene’s hair for the NYC premiere of Sherlock Holmes. Here are Ted’s expert tips and inspiration for how to get the look:

“Start off on wet hair and use Build It Blow Drying Agent and Hairsheet Styling to achieve volume and texture. After blow drying hair straight, use a large barrel curling iron to add movement, texture and shine. To finish off, pull hair back into a chignon using Tame It Shine Lotion and to hold it all in place, spray with Beautiful Hold Hairspray. We went with a more sophisticated look since the dress was a little below knee length and more demure, cocktail style. I wanted to be able to show off her beautiful face and fantastic neck by putting emphasis on these features with hair being a huge accent to the look.”

Rachel McAdams Sherlock Holmes Premiere Hairstyle

rachel+mcadams+sherlock+holmes+premiere+3 Rachel McAdams Sherlock Holmes Premiere HairstyleFor 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.

Willow Smith’s Rihanna Hairstyle

jaden+and+willow+smith Willow Smiths Rihanna HairstyleI 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.

jada+pinkett+and+willow+smith Willow Smiths Rihanna Hairstyle

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?

Be Warned, Ladies: Boys Are On To Your Bumpits

bumpits+photo Be Warned, Ladies: Boys Are On To Your BumpitsA few weeks ago, Mr. Spoiled Pretty left to meet up with some of his buddies and I stayed home to catch up on some blogging and bad reality television. Just as I was getting ready for bed that night, I received the following text message from my husband:

“What’s a Bumpit?”

Turns out our friend, Chris, noticed the waitress’s sky-high hairdo and asked her if she was wearing a Bumpit – like the one he had seen featured in the ubiquitous infomercials. There was no shame in the bar maid’s game…she fessed up to wearing a Bumpit, and seem amazed that Chris had guessed her pompadour partner-in-crime.

So what’s the moral of the story, chicas? Boys are getting wise to our beauty tricks. If you decide to rock the Bumpit, don’t be surprised when someone outs you…or if a candid pic ends up on the Bumpit Sightings Blog.

Rachel Roy Styles Her Hair with Nivea Hand Cream!

rachelroy1 Rachel Roy Styles Her Hair with Nivea Hand Cream!

Designer Rachel Roy is unbelievably gorgeous with superhuman shine to her hair. I recently tweeted her up, asking how she manages to keep her hair so glossy glossy. Rachel responded, “I don’t put much in my hair, but whenever I do an updo I use a little Nivea hand cream.”

Isn’t it so unfair? I could sprinkle fairy dust in my hair and it would still look a hot mess.
