hair how to: Michelle Williams

Sunday was all about the Academy Awards. We oood and aahd over all the lovely dresses and hair. This week we are sharing hair how to's straight from the red carpet. One of our favorites of the night was Michelle Williams, we have said it time and time again, she can do no wrong in our eyes! From her short platinum pixie to her gorgeous dress she was perfection! Short hair always begins with a great haircut and then great product.
1. Spray Prep on damp hair. Smooth a pea sized amount of Texture through the hair.
2. Blow dry hair with a vent brush, directing hair in the direction you want it to fall. Brush the bangs forward and curl under with the same vent brush.
3. Rub a small amount of Styling Creme through your hands and smooth through your hair, and voila you are done! Pin It

Winter Hair Remedies

Cold weather can do a number on otherwise well-behaved hair. Say farewell to static (and other flat, lifeless symptoms) for good with this salon-tested recipe.

Spray Tonic Lotion on clean, damp hair for added moisture.

Apply Straight Blow Dry and blow dry thoroughly.

Spritz your hairbrush with Does it All for styling without static.
Finish with Shine on Finishing Spray. It will give you nice shine but also help with flyaways, dry looking ends and winter static. Pin It

Rainbow Brite

Rainbow brite hair is still all the trend on the red carpet. Kelly Osbourne rocked a lavendar purple hue and Katy Perry chose blue. We think this trend is fun but it's definitely not for the faint in heart. A great way to try this trend is 'chalking' your hair.
Here is a little how to:
Grab some soft chalk (in whatever color you desire), twist the piece of hair you want colored and rub the chalk on it. After you've chalked the piece, use a flat brush and brush out the excess powder. Voila!
A couple tips:
Cover your shoulders with a towel or wear a robe so you don't get the chalk on your clothes. The chalk may get on your clothes throughout the day so wear a dark color or a color similar to the chalk. When you are ready to wash the chalk out brush it out first and then wash, if it won't come out use Sunday shampoo. Good luck!

Paris Hilton

This week we are sharing hair how-to's from the Grammys on Sunday. We usually don't pay much attention to Paris Hilton these days but we must admit she looked chic and understated on the red carpet which we haven't seen in a long time! This is a great hairstyle to do on dirty hair or when you're in a rush.
1. On dry hair create a deep side part. Pull all your hair behind your right ear and secure with a hair band (if you have bangs leave them out).
2. Back comb your ponytail to give you more to work with and to bulk up your ponytail. Smooth with your hands.
3. Twist into a bun and secure with pins. If you have bangs curl them with a curling iron and you can leave them out or loosely pin them back. Spray all over with Spray de Mode Hairspray. Pin It

Adele hair how to

Adele always looks so classic from head to toe. We are obsessed with her red lips, dark eyes and volume volume volume! We also love her subtle blonde melt, it's very subtle but right on trend and not too drastic. Want hair like Adele? Follow these simple steps:
1. On damp hair spray Prep all over hair, Spray Thickening Hairspray from roots to ends and rub a nickel size amount of Styling Creme on roots.
2. Blow dry hair until 80% dry.
3. Section out hair and begin roundbrushing. We like to roundbrush a section about the size of our roundbrush and then leaving the brush in to cool. We recommend owning 8 or more roundbrushes so you can leave them in to cool which will give you mega volume.
4. Once your entire head has roundbrushes in it spray with Classic hairspray and let it cool while you do your makeup.
5. Pull all the brushes out once cooled and shake your hair with your hands. Spray again with Classic hairspray. Pin It
