It makes sense that the annual Costume Institute Gala is one of the most glamorous evenings of the year; the Met Ball kicks off the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. With great fashion comes great hair, and we have a selection of some of the best, most fashionable styles from the 2014 event.
Jennifer Anniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jenny McCarthy and Chelsea Handler are just some of the A-listers with sexy new bobs. It’s a fresh look for spring/summer, but some clients just aren’t into the big chop. Ruth Roche, Artistic Ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care, suggests creating a faux bob using braids and lacing to take the length up – it will put a spring in any girl’s step. See the video on HERE!
“A faux bob is a great look to offer a client for a special event, it’s not going to be a look they want to tackle every day,” says Roche.
STEP 1: Section the top area of the head and pin up.
STEP 2: The bottom hair will be braided into four vertical sections with three strand braids – right over center, left over center, etc., adding to both sides as you go and securing an elastic about 4” from the bottom of each section. This flattens the area, creates a base for pinning and brings the length up.
STEP 3: Tuck the braids up and secure with a pin, leaving the last 4” to hang.
STEP 4: Lace ends to shorten and expand hair to spread it out.
STEP 5: Drop the top portion of hair, lace it to shorten the length and gather and pin hair up so the ends are roughly the same length as the ends of the braids.
STEP 6: Any shorter top layers or fringe (depending on length/type of original haircut) can be arranged to fall over the previous layers to blend.
STEP 7: Finish with Pureology Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for soft touchable hold
Via ModernSalon.com – At the 2014 Academy Awards, the leading ladies might have stolen the show, but the Oscar men definitely gave them a run for their money. While we bid adieu to the man bun seen at The Golden Globes, this year’s Oscar style went dapper with delightfully tailored, neatly coiffed men’s looks. Here, are a few of our favorites.
THE SIDEPART: Aclassic and clean cut with a precision sidepart. This look features sides of the hair that are kept longer and not as tailored.
As seen on: Jonah Hill, Leonardo Dicaprio, Jason Sudeikis
THE ANTI-POMP: Relaxed and stylish, this look features longer hair at the crown and shorter hair on the sides. Subtle-volume is created for extra height and dimension.
As seen on: Channing Tatum, Chris Evans, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt and Mathew McConaughey
OTHER STANDOUTS: Jared Leto’s Ombre Waves and Michael B. Jordan’s Classic Fade
It all started in 1977 when sisters Snooky and Tish Bellomo offered interesting, fun and eclectic items in their St. Mark’s Place store in NYC. No other store could compete with their hot and fun beauty products so the sisters ran with it…especially their fun hair colors. Credited with beginning the trend (and a leader in the category), devoted fans still count on Manic Panic to help them express their own color wheel. Cyndi Lauper, a fan of the yellow, once called in a Manic “Panic” as she was low on her stash.
When not attending trade shows, Snooky and Tish (not hairdressers) perform as back up singers in a rock band, but it appears their true passion is sporting vibrant hair colors. Snooky always stays in the blue family while Tish stays pinkish, but loves to play around.
MODERN caught up with the ever fabulous Snooky and Tish to learn about their own shades and to learn more them. They really are fantastic.
