Get the Look: Katy Perry Pretty in Pink at the 2011 AMA’s

Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Renato Campora Created A High-Fashion Sophisticated Up-Do for Katy Perry at 39th Annual American Music Awards

INSPIRATION: A very sculpted, modern take on a French twist. Renato was inspired for this look after seeing Katy’s red carpet dress. The look was elegant and sophisticated but also innovative.

How To Get the Look: Renato began by applying Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel to wet hair in order to give it a firm base. He then blow-dried the hair while brushing it through with a flat brush. He used a one-inch curling iron throughout the hair to create body while giving it a sturdy foundation. Renato then heavily teased the hair. To create the final up-do, he pushed the front of the hair forward and wrapped the rest into a French twist, securing it with hairpins. To complete the look, Renato added an accessory made by Vivienne Westwood by weaving it into the hair with his fingers. He secured the look by spraying the hair with Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.

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.

Amy Adams: “Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that’s okay”

Amy Adams is InStyle’s December girl. Amy is promoting her new movie, ‘The Muppets’. I love Amy Adams. She’s one of my favorite celebrity moms. She’s just so cute and down to earth! She looks like she actually takes care of her kids herself, doesn’t walk to the park with the nanny…but I could be wrong.

Balancing her career, her engagement and motherood: “I have to trust that I can prioritize my family and myself while still finding the energy and focus for my work. And I believe I can. I know I can.”

Losing the pregnancy weight: “I read about these actresses who get on a stationary bike two weeks after giving birth and I’m like, ‘What? Where did you push your baby out of?’ Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that’s okay right now.”

Motherhood: For Adams, motherhood has meant forgoing the makeup, putting off the pampering, and embracing the dried cereal all over her car. Fortunately, she adds, it has all paid off in the long run. “I’m definitely not one of those women who make it look easy. I’m always running late — and look, there’s guacamole on my purse! But I’m more patient than I ever thought I would be, and I’m not so hard on myself anymore.”

She will marry Darren Le Gallo: They have yet to tie the knot, the couple — who divide household duties between themselves; Adams does laundry while he washes bottles — admit the nuptials are likely to be sooner rather than later. “I’ll say to Darren, ‘What do you think of May?’ and he’ll say, ‘May. Ha, ha. You just let me know.’ I just can’t decide!” she laughs, despite her opinion that marriage is not “the only way to sustain a relationship. I am putting more pressure on myself now that we have Avi. I’ll figure it out soon.”

Date nights: “[They include] a lot of food and maybe a glass of wine,” she reveals. “We’re always like, ‘It’s 11:30! Woo-hoo! We’re crazy!’”

Defining herself: “There’s danger in defining your identity. I accept that life is a series of transitions. You think you know who you are, but then something comes along to make you question everything.”

Keeping clothes from her movies: “I do have a pair of gorgeous Christian Louboutins that I wore in Leap Year. They’re stored in their little dust covers in a box in my closet.”

Jessica Alba is removing her tattoo!

Jessica Alba looks to be having another tattoo removed! Back in 2009, she had a tattoo of a ladybird and daisy removed from the back of her neck. She had her neck tattooed as a ‘bonding experience’ with her mother and aunt two years previous, but she didn’t like it for long.

Now she appears to be getting rid of another tattoo she’s had for a while, the Sanskrit word ‘Padma’ on her wrist.

Laser surgery takes between three to 15 treatments, which take place at least six weeks apart, to remove all trace of the tattoos.

I’m so glad I only have one tattoo, and I still somewhat like it. I can’t imagine trying to erase them. Looks so painful!
