Michelle Trachtenberg’s New Dark ‘Do is Courtesy of an At-Home Colour!‏

As seen in this week’s US Weekly, when actress Michelle Trachtenberg decided to take her hair color darker this fall, she didn’t head to the salon… she turned to John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour, taking her naturally medium brown hair to a rich, deep brunette shade.

“I love my colorist, but between traveling and shooting I don’t always have time to make it to the salon,” explains Trachtenberg. “I trust John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour to deliver color as even and shiny as salon color, and I can find my favorite shade anywhere my work takes me. Plus it’s so simple—the foam is so thick, you can feel it covering every strand giving even coverage from root to tip. To get my current color, I used Precision Foam Colour 3N, Brilliant Brunette® Deep Brown-Black—it’s the perfect deep, rich shade for me this season.”

With an array of high-shine, vibrant options for blondes, brunettes and redheads, John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour brings a salon shade spectrum home. An innovation seven years in the making, the breakthrough at-home colour employs proprietary foam technology to provide even coverage—the kind of flawless colour previously only available at the salon.

With its stylist-selected shades and patent-pending foam technology, the unprecedented hair colour ensures effortless application and complete 100% grey coverage for natural-looking, salon-quality results. No mess, no drips, no stains—just gorgeous hair from every angle.

Get Red Carpet Ready with göt2b

Want to copy the coveted hairstyles of the 2011 American Music Award nominees? With a little help from göt2b hair stylers and celebrity stylist Larry Sims, you’ll be on your way to a rockin’ ‘do in no time. Below, Sims predicts the red carpet looks of Katy Perry, Adele and Rihanna and gives step-by-step tips on how to achieve each look at home!


“Katy Perry’s look has always been daring and fun with a classy edge to it,” says Sims. He predicts she’ll rock glamorous, old Hollywood waves (in her now signature pink hair, of course!). To achieve Katy’s flawless waves, Sims suggests “curling hair with a ¼ inch curling iron barrel, wrapping strands downward from root-to-tip, section-by-section.” After hair has been set, Sims recommends “brushing strands downward to loosen up the wave before locking in the style with göt2b rockin’ it encore hold hairspray.

 

“Adele typically shows up to red carpet events with her signature beehive,” says Sims. This Sunday, he predicts Adele will flaunt loose curls and tons of volume. To achieve Adele’s luscious locks, Sims recommends “curling hair with an extra-large curling iron barrel, wrapping hair section-by-section in opposite directions away from the face.” Once hair has been set, “sprinkle göt2b POWDER’ful volumizing styling powder directly onto roots, focusing on the crown. Then, toss your head over, massaging the powder deeper into your roots with your fingertips,” he adds. Toss your head back over and voila!


Over the past year, Rihanna has gone from black bob to red curls and back again! “This year, I predict Rihanna showing up with hair that will be fused with wheat and blonde, whose style will resemble Bridget Bardot’s sexy side-swept locks,” says Sims. To achieve this look, Sims suggests prepping hair with the göt2b fat-tastic dry shampoo to absorb oil and give limp strands “incredible volume that will last all night long.” Next, he recommends setting hair with jumbo-size hot rollers. “Once hair has been set, use your fingertips to break up the texture while keeping your side fringe heavy at the brow of your face.” Lastly, spray the finished look with göt2b rockin’ it encore hold hairspray.

göt2b hair stylers retail for $5.99 at Wal-mart, Drugstores (Walgreens, CVS and Rite-Aid), Ulta and food retailers nationwide.


Which of your treasured things has your child or pet destroyed?

 

My one year old loves to watch me put on makeup. Problem is when he gets his hands on any beauty product he tries to decorate his own face. I found my favorite lipstick (MAC Hot Tahiti) had been toddlerized he dug his little finger down the middle and hollowed it out.

This is not the first time one of my kids has eaten a lipstick or emptied a can of shaving cream playing in the foam. What your child or pet got into?
