HOW-TO: Create an A-List Faux Bob

This story is via ModernSalon.com

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 RocheArtistic 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

The 40’s Making a Comeback: Rolls, Flat Waves, Low Side Parts

The 40's Making a Comeback: Rolls, Flat Waves, Low Side Parts

Via ModernSalon.Com

According to Wade Blackford, a KEVIN.MURPHY Ceative Team & Style Master Educator and Creative Team Educator for Chumba Concept Salons in Australia, the ‘40s will make a big come back in summer 2014 with rolls off the face and onto the face, flat waves and very low side parts.

“Don’t think big think small,” says Blackford. “You will see messy or neat hair, but it won’t be big. Elegance is still in. Think haircut shapes from Mad Men but stylized so they don’t flatter the housewife like in the past few seasons, but more femme fatale.

‘70s Rock ‘n’ Roll haircuts are on their way back with a return to texture and a more natural feel. Color will move back toward more natural tones while brights and fluorescents “are on their way out.” Reds and Corals will be us for another season and will be featured strongly editorially.

Oscars 2014: Best of the Boys

 

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: A classic 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 HillLeonardo DicaprioJason Sudeikis

THE OSCARS INSIDE SCOOP: Interview With Chris McMillan

Image

Living Proof Spokesperson and Celebrity Stylist Chris McMillan is a regular hairdresser for Hollywood A listers and this year he created the Oscar look for Kate Hudson, the beauty at the top of everyone’s “HITS” list. Above and beyond her gorgeous Versace gown, Hudson sported the winning “do” of the night, soft, elegant, long side swept waves.

I got a chance to chat with McMillan the morning after the awards show to learn more about his “hits” and “misses”. Ever the gentleman, McMillan did not want to find fault with any single finish (although he DID say he would love to get “hold of Jennifer Lawrence to give her something a bit more age appropriate…younger”), but he does offer some insight and his fave trends from the Oscars.

“No one leaves her house unless she feels she looks good,” he told me. “But humidity really did play a factor this year. As you know it was raining all day and some of the artists had to go heavy with product or totally change the look to be safe.” For Hudson, McMillan went heavy with Living Proof Flex (“It is my must have and use product”) and went big. “I mean BIG,” he says. “I knew it would fall a bit in the car and did that so it would be perfect by the time she hit the red carpet.” McMillan armed Hudson with a comb and a can of Flex to keep her locks in place for the six hour Oscar red carpet and ceremony. “I was not with her for the show so she had to do her own touch up backstage before she went onstage to present.”

As far as his own “hits” list, McMillan says “I come from the school of ‘touchable’ hair…never helmets… and my favorites all fall into that category.” McMillan offers his favorite looks from the night:

FAVE SHORT LOOKS: Charlize Theron. “It was effortless and elegant.”

FAVE UPDO: Meryl Streep. “So simple. I loved her low chignon.” (McMillan also loved Julia Roberts chignon)

FAVE HAIR ACCESSORY: For McMillan it was a no-brainer…”I loved how Lupita Nyong’o used her headband as jewelry.”

FAVE LONG LOOK: Kate Hudson. “I hate to say it…because I did it…but it was perfect and really expressed the trend well. It was modern and fashionable,” and far from a helmet.
