Here is how to get Kristen’ low chignon:

“I really wanted Kristen’s hair to be up in order to show off her amazing Fred Leighton choker and Balenciaga gown. I gave her a deep side part and pulled her hair into a low chignon, creating a silhouette that has a hint of 20s, but the texture keeps it completely modern.
To get this hairstyle I started by applying the new Dove Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse to her hair and blew it dry with a round brush.
Next I sprayed Oribe Dry Texture Spray all over before pulling the hair into a low chignon and secured with bobby pins.
To keep her in place all night, I finished with the new Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray; I love this spray because it has amazing hold and gives the hair great shine that is still soft to the touch.”

Here is how to get Lea’s Soft, Touchable Hair:

“I was so inspired by Lea and her Atelier Versace gown and wanted to give her a hairstyle that was soft, sexy, and touchable.
I started by applying a large dollop of the new Dove Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse to Lea’s damp hair and blow dried with a large round brush for volume.
Next, I took a dime-size amount of the new Dove Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum in my hands and rubbed them together to warm up the product, and then raked my hands through her hair. I am obsessed with this cream; it gives the hair amazing shine and separation, and also nourishes the hair too so it’s like having a styling product and a conditioner in one bottle.
I pulled her hair into a loose bun while Lea had her makeup done to set a loose wave in her hair. Then, I let the hair down and sprayed Oribe Après Beach Spray all over to give the hair that great sexy “second-day” hair.
Just before Lea left for the red carpet, I finished her hairstyle by spraying the new Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over to keep her hair in place without it looking stiff or crunchy.”

Rachael McAdams “The Vow” Press Conference in LA.

Rachel attended the press conference for “The Vow” in Los Angeles yesterday (January 26). She will continue her press days in Los Angeles today and this weekend.

Rachael is so stunningly beautiful! Jocelyn and I saw a pre-screening of “The Vow” it wasn’t bad, I think both she and Channing did a great job acting in the movie. We both just wanted more of the reconciliation part of their story. Trying to find out what products Rachael is wearing at this event, stay tuned for more info!

 


Are you getting the smoothest shave possible?

While Cupid may prick you with his arrow this Valentine’s Day, make sure you don’t prick others with stubbly, unshaven legs. Whether you’re flaunting a short skirt on a romantic date or sporting pajama shorts while watching “Kill Bill” with your boycotting buddies, having silky, smooth legs is the best way to give your skin the love it needs. Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream has seven formulas perfectly tailored for your skin and grooming needs. Pure Silk’s aloe-enriched formula helps ensure a clean shave so that you (and your skin) don’t get “irritated” this Valentine’s Day.

Here are a few tips from the Pure Silk experts on how to properly shave your legs, underarms and bikini line so that razor burn and nicks don’t leave you wearing the wrong kind of red this Valentine’s Day:

Plumeria is my favorite of the Pure Silk line. It smells amazing and helps me get the smoothest, nick free shave.

Legs:
Make sure your skin has been wet for at least three minutes before shaving. This is about the amount of time it takes for hairs to absorb water and lift away from the skin, making it easier for them to be shaved. Take your time when shaving, especially around the ankles and knees, where you’re more likely to get nicks and cuts. Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream in Cherry Blossom or Plumeria will leave you with a subtle, floral scent so you won’t have to rely on your man for that pending flower delivery (that he forgot to order).

Underarms:
When shaving underarms, use a “star” pattern – shave up and down and from side to side to get all the hairs, which in this area of the body grow in a very random pattern. Shaving in a star pattern also helps cut down on irritation from too many razor strokes

Bikini:
Hair in the bikini area grows in a random, often circular pattern. Make sure to shave in the direction of hair growth to reduce irritation. Try shaving with Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream for Sensitive Skin, which contains aloe, papaya, thyme and willow bark formula to help soothe skin and prevent irritation.

The Pure Silk® Moisturizing Shave Cream family includes seven lightly scented formulas that are all designed to enhance and enrich your shaving experience while protecting skin from razor burn, nicks and cuts.
