Get the Look: The “Patty Cake Curl” As Seen on “The City”

image002.jpg

As seen on the style-making show “The City,” hair-curling drama takes on a whole new meaning! Both Olivia and Whitney have worn long, flowing and natural curls that evoke a vintage glamour.

These easy-to-follow tips from stylist Ryan Nickulas of the Ryan Darius Salon in the West Village will help you achieve this look, which he calls the “Patty Cake Curl,” the type of flowing curl that flaunts a perfect circle after you wrap hair around the fingers.

· Part hair in the middle or to either side.

· Take a small or large section of hair and wrap it around your finger in a circle to create a pin curl.

· Take a flat iron and close it around the curl. (Make sure that you remove your finger from the curl first!!)

· Press the iron closed for 15-20 seconds to create the perfect curl that a curling iron can’t achieve.

Scarlett Johansson for Dolce & Gabbana.

Scarlett Johansson is the face of the new Dolce & Gabbana line of cosmetics, the Italian designing duo has revealed.

“Scarlett is sure of herself. She’s a beautiful girl, but she’s really easygoing. She is very Dolce & Gabbana.”

The Golden Globe-nominated actress was recently photographed for a series of sexy Marilyn Monroe-inspired print ads slated to debut on the pages of Fashion Bibles later this year.

“We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood,” Stefano Gabbana told WWD on Friday.

The lipsticks will be scented with rose, Gabbana explained. “We wanted to create makeup with a scent. Domenico and I remember when we were children and opened our mother’s handbags — the scent of her lipstick trailed out. I observed that when women open makeup, they smell it first.”

Prices will range from $20 for nail lacquer to $59 for powder foundation.

D&G Makeup will launch this Spring.

Jessica Simpson’s beauty tip: Only wash your hair two to three times, a month!

Can you imagine!  I mean, I know you’re not supposed to wash your hair everyday.  I wash my hair probably 3 times a week… but three times a MONTH!? I can’t imagine how nasty your hair would get!  Especially if you keep layering on product!

Jessica Simpson keeps her blonde locks looking gorgeous by listening to her mane man, celebrity stylist Ken Paves. So when Ken – who also works with Eva Longoria Parker and Jennifer Lopez – told her to shampoo only two to three times a month, she took his advice. Unfortunately, though, it has gotten the singer into some hair situations. “Jess’ tresses are often greasy, but she hides it well, an insider tells Star. “She wears hats or reaches for the Hairdo, the clip-on extension line she created with Ken.” And if her hair starts to smell a bit funky, adds the insider, she just spritzes it with perfume – from her own line, of course!

Here is Jessica Simpson in January’s Marie Claire Magazine.  Enjoy!
