Introducing UNITE haircare!

I really love the new UNITE haircare line, it has done wonders with my hair. The scent of both the shampoo and conditioner is so pretty it leaves my hair smelling amazing.

UNITE shampoo gets my hair really clean without over drying it and has really helped my hair to shine. My favorite product though has to be UNITE conditioner, at first I thought it wasn’t thick enough to really condition my hair. That is where the magic is though, it feels more like a shampoo during application instead of the overly thick almost lotion texture of a lot of conditioners. The UNITE conditioner is the perfect balance for my dual personality hair it conditions enough to keep my curls in line but is lightwieght enough not the weigh down my super fine hair. I love how great my hair looks and feels while using UNITE I have even been leaving it down, which for a girl who ties her hair up 99.5% of the time is a big thing!

UNITE is an amazing, cruelty-free, botanically based line proudly free of parabens, sulfate, dea & mea ingredients, and gluten. The premium line already has a list of celebrity fans such as: Heidi Klum, Eva Longoria, Sienna Miller, David Beckham, Nina Dobrev, Jennifer Hudson,  and many more. www.unitehair.com

GET THE LOOK! Rachel McAdams’ Sexy Red Carpet Hair!

The stars of the new romantic comedy “Morning Glory” came together on Sunday, November 7th at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City to celebrate the movie’s premiere. Leading lady, Rachel McAdams, looked stunning and sultry on the red carpet with tousled, textured hair styled by Sebastian Professional Stylist Design Team Member Thomas Dunkin. After collaborating with the makeup artist and wardrobe stylist on Rachel’s final look, Thomas chose to craft a sexy, voluminous coif with a punch of rock star glam as an unexpected and unpredictable anecdote to the star’s gray strapless dress.

To achieve this sexy rocker chic ‘do, Thomas shares a step-by-step how-to for the A-list actress’ style:

1. Saturate freshly washed hair with Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray for heat protection and touchably soft volume.

2. Rough dry with hands and blow-dryer lifting random sections while twisting hair in different directions until very nearly dry.

3. Place hair in very large Velcro rollers in a brickwork pattern for maximum root lift. Complete drying with a diffuser then allow the rollers to cool and set.

4. Remove rollers and apply a sparse amount of Sebastian Professional Matte Putty through the ends of the hair. Apply another blast of heat with the hair dryer to work up the hair’s texture by massaging the roots with finger tips.

5. Part the hair low so that a big section of fringe sits asymmetric and falls sensually over one eye. To exaggerate the style and build up the shape, set the style with Sebastian Professional Re-Shaper by spraying into the stream of hot air from the hair dryer.

6. Apply Sebastian Professional Matte Putty again loosening the look with your hands and defining the sections that give a disheveled but modern edge to the final look.
