Emmys 2009 Beauty: January Jones

emmys+2009+january+jones+2 Emmys 2009 Beauty: January JonesMark Townsend, Matrix’s celebrity stylist, helped Mad Men star January Jones get glam for the 2009 Emmy Awards. According to Townsend, “Working with January for any event is always going to be fun and inspiring.”

Mark was blown away with the detail and craftsmanship that went into making January’s stunning Versace gown. “While getting January ready, we had the dress hanging close by so I could see it while doing January’s hair, and that proved to be the inspiration for her overall look,” says Townsend, who loved all the lines and cut-outs of the dress, and wanted the hair to have the same feeling.

To get January’s hair from this glamorous event, Mark first sprayed Biolage Bodifying Spray Gel in her damp hair and blow dried it with a medium round brush. Then, he took sections of her hair pulled and pinned them back one at a time. January has shoulder length hair, so he needed to pull the hair back in sections because it is too short to pull it back all at the same time. Mark wanted the style to look like a textured chignon and by pinning sections at the back, he was able to achieve exactly that. He finished the chignon with Vavoom Shape Maker Hairspray to give the style some hold, and purposely let some hair fall loose around the front to catch the light and to give it more of a “fashion” look.

A More Perfect Union: Gabrielle Graces Essence Magazine’s September Cover

gabrielle+union+essence A More Perfect Union: Gabrielle Graces Essence Magazines September CoverYou know how they say magazines sell more issues based on which celeb is on the cover? Well, even though I know it’s true, I never paid a cover much mind, to be honest. I’m a magazine nut – and if the pages are filled with beauty, fashion and star style, I’m buying it – regardless of who is on the front.

But the September 2009 issue of Essence is a rare exception. As soon as I spotted Gabrielle Union, sporting an espresso bob with side-swept bangs for her 5th Essence cover, I snatched the mag off the shelf and made a beeline for the register.

“She was mad for her new look with the sexy bangs and shoulder-length cut,” recalls Beauty and Cover Director Mikki Taylor, who led the makeover team in creating this transformation.

When I brought the issue home, I showed Mr. Spoiled Pretty. “Isn’t her hair to-die, Graham?” I asked. To which he replied, “Um…isn’t that how you usually wear your hair when it’s down?” Well, yeah…I am pretty handy with the flat iron and this is the look I’m going for. But Gabrielle’s do is the gold standard, and my limited styling prowess has only achieved bronze status – at best.

But you best believe I’m going to tack this photo up and practice, practice, practice to perfect the look. Too bad there aren’t any products to help replicate Gabrielle’s flawless cocoa complexion and girl next door dimples.

The September 2009 issue of Essence is on newsstands now.

Kim Kardashian’s new blonde hair got me thinking about whether or not her makeup choices have changed. Is she using different hues to compliment her new do?

For the answer, I contacted my friend and Kim’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic. He told me, “Her makeup is not drastically different. We’re keeping in the warm tones for a softer look. Bronze skin, softer lashes, softer brows. Peachy tones. It’s so much fun doing her makeup as a blonde!”
