Who Cut Eva Longoria’s Hair?!?!

eva+longoria+1 Who Cut Eva Longorias Hair?!?!Who’s responsible for Eva Longoria’s short new do? Her husband, Tony Parker!

“Tony cut my hair!” says Longoria. “I had to cut my hair for the show because Gabrielle has short hair,” she says. “I wore a wig in the last episode, but I didn’t want to wear a wig this whole season, so I was like, ‘I’m going to cut it!'”

She says her hairstylist, Ken Paves, forced Parker to make the first move. “He said, ‘Tony, you’re going to do the first cut, so she can’t be mad at me,'” she says. “Tony did the first snip. He did more and then he did more and then Kenny cleaned it up.”

Sex And The City Beauty: Miranda

cynthia nixon l Sex And The City Beauty: Miranda
Determined to hire a redhead for Miranda, Sex And The City creator Darren Star almost passed over Cynthia Nixon. “For me, it was important that the hair color, body types and everything was different,” he remembers. “When Cynthia Nixon came in to read for the first time, she was blond. I saw Miranda as a redhead. Thankfully, I took that leap of faith that she would look good as a redhead.”

miranda2 Sex And The City Beauty: MirandaIn the movie version of SATC, Miranda is undeniably more polished and modish than we last saw her. Thanks to a sassy and versatile hairstyle in an enviable scarlet shade, she finally looks the part of urban sophisticate.

The new and improved Miranda also sports a smoky eye and lots a lashes, to showcase her baby blues. Dusty rose blush and a soft pink lip round out the look.

At long last, our fave wry redhead is exercising her rights (Miranda rights, get it?) to step out of the shadows and be fabulous!

My Date With Franc at the Giovanni & Pileggi Salon

giovanni+%26+pileggi1 My Date With Franc at the Giovanni & Pileggi Salon
A month ago, I was invited to the grand re-opening of Giovanni & Pileggi, now located in an 1840’s Federal Period Townhouse at 256 South 16th Street in Center City Philadelphia. A few weeks later, I was invited back to the salon – this time, to have my hair cut and colored by one of their talented stylists.

Last Tuesday, I arrived at the salon and was greeted by Franc, whom I had met back in April at the opening. His friendly demeanor put me at ease, at least a little bit. But having been in a 13-year monogamous relationship with my hairdresser Erik, I was having heart palpitations about putting my hair in someone else’s hands.

daneen+and+franc My Date With Franc at the Giovanni & Pileggi SalonWhen Franc sat me down in his chair and asked me what I had in mind for my new do, I surprised myself when I responded, “Do whatever you think is best. I trust you.” I removed the elastic from ponytail and Franc sized up my mane. “Highlights,” he said assertively. “Highlights will give your hair dimension.”

After mixing up my color, he quickly applied the mixture and foil to sections of my hair with amazing dexterity. While working his magic, I remembered I was there in a journalistic capacity and began firing off questions.

Franc told me that as a student at The Philadelphia High School for Creative And Performing Arts, he befriended some girls in the dance department and started doing their hair. Not long after, he realized that hair was his calling and enrolled in beauty school. After graduating from beauty school, he moved to New York City and worked at Bumble & Bumble. It was during his years in NYC that he noticed how segregated the industry was – white customers patronized white salons and black clients patronized black salons. So Franc decided to teach himself how to work with ethnic/textured hair, so that he could cater to all patrons.

In New York, he honed his craft working at the Bumble & Bumble salon – as well as doing fashion shows and photo shoots. But a few years ago, he got a little homesick and decided to move back to Philly to work exclusively in a salon setting. “I much prefer working in a salon because I enjoy helping regular people transform into better versions of themselves,” he said. “It’s not that hard to make a model look good. Plus salon work allows me to be creative. When you’re doing editorial or runway work, you’re following someone else’s template.”

After rinsing the dye out of my hair, a gloss was applied and allowed to marinate – to add all-over shine to my dull locks. But before long, I was back in Franc’s chair. He quickly blow dried my hair and whipped out his shears. Again, I shocked myself by telling him to do what he thought was best. He decided to keep the length, but add some layers that would give my hair shape and movement. Then he styled it without any input from me. So how’d he do?

Amazing, right?!?!?!?!?! I love my hair and I love Franc for transforming me into a better version of myself.

If you live anywhere near Philadelphia, even if it’s kind of a hike, you must get to Giovanni & Pileggi and pay Franc a visit.
