• Red Carpet Report: Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

    161201-victorias-secret-fashion-show-828x620

    Every year, Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is a gathering for all celebs, entertainers, and anyone that loves to watch  hot chicks in barely anything walk the runway to great music. However, we love it for one reason and one reason only: THE HAIR! Victoria’s Secret Hair is every girl’s dream. Their color, the length, the natural wave that screams #WokeUpLikeThis, and part of us truly believes that Adriana Lima does, in fact, wake up like that.

    This year, the lingerie show has a new head stylist in charge: Sarah Potempa. Not only is she the sweetest thing, and extremely talented, but she is an inventor and entrepreneur. She invented the Beachwaver. Its an awesome curling iron that twirls itself so you dont have to burn your arm or hand while giving yourself the perfect beach wave. So, this year, they have a different approach to all the hair. It is shiny, defined curls and waves, in a more natural length. They are building off the natural look of all the models. Some of them are still wearing hair extensions, but it’s not a long dramatic look, it’s a natural approach to hair extensions.

    You can recreate this look too! The most affordable extensions on the market today are Secret Extensions. You can add a few pieces for various look that you may desire: one piece will give you a natural look, two pieces are great if you have shorter hair and want real length and volume, three pieces will give you that over the top glamazon hair. Once you have your pieces in, use your Beachwaver to create the perfect beach wave all over your head. An easy way to make sure to get all the hair curled is to style it before you put it on. HairClutch is the perfect styling assistant. It holds the hair while you curl it. Make sure to keep the setting of heat on 300 degrees or less. You don’t need to hold the hair on the iron for too long. Once you have heated the hair in the curl shape let the hair go out of the iron and hold it in your hand in the curl shape to cool. Once it cools down you can let it go. These curls last and don’t need an abundance of hair product. Below, our Dame, Katie Welch is wearing three pieces of secret extensions (two lightest golden blonde and one medium golden blonde for a lowlight).

  • Trend Alert: Best Hairstyles from Fashion Week Around the World

    fashion week

    Dames! There were some epic hairstyles all over the world last month.  I really loved watching every look.  What does this mean?  Let’s go through each image and talk about how this affects us on trends coming…

     

    NY Marchesa Antonio Corral Calero

    Hair jewelry is definitely creeping in on us. My prediction is that it’s about to blow up next year — everyone will be rocking hair jewelry. Get in on the alert to be the first ones doing it, not just for a wedding or a festival, but out for drinks or a date. Jen Atkin created a pretty dope hair jewelry line with Chloe and Isabel last year. Low hair buns are taking a twist as well.  Get creative: wrap, tie, and knot. This is so exciting!

    NYC, Christian Siriano - Hair: Anthony Cole

    Add wraps, ties, and string around your braids to get a bobble; it’s accessorizing your braid. I got some pretty cool flower pins at Ulta the other day and I put them in may hair, it was so fun to spruce up a braid!

     

    London, Versus Versace - Hair: Paul Hanlon

    London, Versus Versace – Hair: Paul Hanlon

    This is so cool! By far my favorite hair. Why? because it’s so Fifth Element. How does this translate into everyday hair? Hipsters will be washing theirs less and fashion girls will be investing more in coconut oil to give texture to their updo wet look. In the end, everyone that wishes they were cool will be seeing all this and saying: “I could never pull that off”. Yes, you can! The wet look is not going anywhere, it’s just evolving with texture.

    London, Christopher Kane - Hair: Guido Palau

    Messy wet texture, mixed with polished hair. Mixed media in the hair. This is slick polished hair with a messy braid!

    Paris, Chanel - Hair: Sam McKnight

    Paris, Chanel – Hair: Sam McKnight

    Lots of volume and glamorous headbands. You can get this level of volume with Secret Volume by The Hair Dame.

    Paris, Balmain - Hair: Sam McKnight

    Sam McKnight basically showed us how to make cornrows look high fashion. Polished. Straight. Epic.

    Milan, Moschino - Hair: Paul Hanlon

    Milan, Moschino – Hair: Paul Hanlon

    SHORT BANGS OH ME, OH MY! Clip-on bangs are an amazing way to get this look without crying and wearing headbands for the next 6 months.

    Milan, Bottega Veneta - Hair: Guido Palau

    Milan, Bottega Veneta – Hair: Guido Palau

    Hair hats — love it. Take your dirty hair day and do something more than a ponytail or a bun. Use precision parts and create disconnected styles, like a textured top knot to the side and a ponytail in the back. So cute! You could rock this hairstyle in sweatpants and look fly.

    Dames, I hope you liked this recap. Try these hairstyles and tag me on IG. I”ll repost you!

    XXOO,
