Face
“For Kristen’s face, I first applied mark Calm & Composed Super Soothing Moisturizer followed by mark Face Xpert Flawless Touch Makeup in Buff using the mark Foundation Brush. To cover any redness, I used mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Fair/Light and mark Get Bright Hook Up Highlighter in Light underneath her eyes. I then set her foundation by brushing on mark Matte-nificent Oil Absorbing Powder in Nude Ivory using the mark Powder Brush. As a final touch, I applied mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush Custom Color Palette in Sandy to the apples of her cheeks to create that natural looking glow.”

Eyes
“I wanted to make Kristen’s eyes the focus of her face, so I started by smudging mark Eyemarker Color On Line in Jet along the top of her lash line using the mark Eyeliner Brush. I extended the liner outwards so that it looked like a smudged cat eye. I then mixed I-mark Custom Pick Eyeshadows in Tiki and Magic and lightly dusted onto her lids, using the mark Angled Contour Eyeshaodw Brush to soften the edge by blending it back and forth. I then used two coats of mark Lash Splash Hook Up Waterproof Mascara in Black on her upper and lower lashes.”

Lips
“For her lips I used mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in m.powerment Peach.”

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.

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.
