Dove Stylist Mark Townsend dishes on Kristen Wiig’s and Lea Michele’s 2012 SAG Hair Looks.

During last nights 18th annual SAG Awards, Kristen Wiig, nominated for ‘Bridesmaids’ for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, and Lea Michele, nominated for ‘Glee’ for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, stole the style spotlight. Below, Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend shares his tips for achieving these red carpet looks, on and off the red carpet. Mark used products from the NEW Dove Style+Care collection. The products are slowly rolling out on store shelves now, but available nationwide March 1st. Also, be sure to check the brand out on Twitter (@Dove and #DoveStyle) this award season!

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.”

Dove being called out for their new “racist” ad!

I read the headline above, and thought to myself – how could Dove be considered racist? Really? People are too sensitive sometimes… then I saw the ad.

I’m sure it wasn’t intentional – but c’mon – no one noticed how bad this looked?

Now making the internet rounds: a new, supposed Dove ad called out for connoting an underlying bias. (Editor’s note: Dove hasn’t taken responsibility for the promotion, although commenters on various sites recount seeing it in magazines.)

Via Copyranter, comes the image for the brand’s VisibleCare body wash, showing three women — one black, one possibly Latina and one blonde — standing in front of “before” and “after” images. Copyranter’s takeaway: “Dove body wash turns Black Women into Latino Women into White Women.” Jezebel refers to it as “unintentionally(?) racist,”adding, “Bye-bye black skin, hello white skin! (Scrub hard!)”

If this advertisement proves real, it wouldn’t be the first time Dove’s practices have been questioned.

Last summer, someone affiliated with the beauty giant put up a casting notice for Dove’s “Real Beauty” campaign, looking for naturally fit, not too curvy and not too athletic women. Like, really? Dove quickly distanced itself from the posting, telling StyleList the notice “was not approved by the brand or agency team and did not reflect the spirit of the brand team’s vision….We believe our images demonstrate that real beauty comes in many shapes, sizes, colors and ages and we remain committed to featuring realistic and attainable images of beauty in all our advertising.”
