    Emily Ratajkowski hosted Revolve’s official launch party, as she presented her collaboration with Revolve. The fashions are on point with a hippie chic vibe. We loved Emily’s tousled ” I woke up like this” style.  Slightly polished with natural movement.

    The BET Awards was this past Sunday and these Dames always turn it out. We were feelin’ all the glam vibes on the red carpet this season, but there was a trending color on the carpet we could not deny. PLATINUM. This color is nothing new or different, Marilyn did it, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, even the ever trending Kim Kardashian. Its safe to say, you need confidence and a kick ass hairstylist to pull it off, but I think its clear the ladies on the red carpet did a fine job!!

  • Best of Awards Season Hair- Get the Look

    best hair of awards season

    Every woman knows, our hair is our number 1 accessory. This award season we LOVED all the hair on the red carpet. Lorenzo Martin killed it with Jennifer Lopez’s mane, Gianandrea really pulled out the glam card for Chrissy Teigen, and Danilo, as usual, turned Gwen Stefani out. However, our favorite hair of the whole season goes to …..

    Hair By Jenny Cho

    To Get the look: on damp hair apply a root lifter. We love Root Blast by Bamboo. Apply Texture Cream by Neuma on midshaft and ends, comb through to evenly distribute and rough blow dry to get as much volume into the root as possible. Using a 1 1/2″ barrel curling iron take horizontal sections in 1/2″ diameter and wrap hair around iron. Hold it for a few seconds until u feel the hair hot. Release the hair into your hand and pull down ends of hair to relax the curl. Do this around the head. allow to sit for a few minutes and brush out with your maison pearson brush. to finish spray Sally Hershberger Glam Waves and top that with Morrocan Oil Hairspray. Tuck one side behind the ear for a sophisticated chic look. This hairstyle is great dressed up or dressed down.

    Everyone is talking about the dress(es), Kim Kardashian’s that is, but we have a different point of view.  We can’t stop fawning over her hair looks all weekend! Hair perfectly coiffed by Michael Silva Friday night. How do you guys feel about the hairstyles complimenting the wardrobe? Let us know what you think!

     

    Friday night bachelorette party with her girls. She’s wearing Balmain with smooth speak body waves in her hair. We love the depth of her hair color against the light colors in her dress.

     

    Saturday night pre-wedding party at the Versace Mansion, Kim wore her hair up in a perfectly blown out tousled undo. It’s a gorgeous complement to her sexy white suit.

     

    Everyone was wondering and now we know, The Mane man for the big wedding event was one of her favorite hairstylists, Chris McMillan.

    Her hair was so gorgeously styled with 3 looks for the evening.
