SEE IT HERE! Katy Perry goes Animal-red!

1411671746206_wps_44_katyperry_12_hours_ago_Go

Katy Perry has dyed her hair nearly all of the colors of the rainbow – and now the singer has gone flaming red!

The 29-year-old showed off her new ‘do on Instagram, comparing herself to Animal of the Muppets!

She’s been purple, green, blue, pink and black.
So it wasn’t a huge stretch of the imagination that Katy Perry might next select fiery red as her hair colour of choice.
The 29-year-old singer debuted the dramatic change on her Instagram on Wednesday and compared the look to Animal of The Muppet Show.

Captioning next to a side-by-side collage of the puppet and herself, she said: ‘Got dat hot wheels hurrr/play doe pink do by @majormoonn’ referring to children’s Play-Doh moulding clay and tagging her hair colourist Daniel Moon.

In the creative snap, which she titled ‘hairspiration’ with decorative Halloween pumpkins, Katy’s mane does indeed look wild, displaying jet black roots and bright pinky red ends.

The Firework diva can be seen wearing a diamond necklace and rose pink lipstick in the image which she paired with a picture of drumming puppet Animal, drumsticks in hand.

What do you think of her new look?

Straighten your hair naturally with Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Line!

IMG_4013

I have ridiculous hair. It’s neither straight nor curly. It falls somewhere in the annoying, frizzy middle. My entire life I’ve fought of the frizzy’s and have chosen to go the way of straightening my hair for the most part. It’s easier to go straight then to try and get perfect curls. I know some of you understand my pain.

When Aveda reached out to see if I’d be interested in trying their Smooth Infusion Line, I decided HECK YEAH! I’ve always been a fan of Aveda – and a line designed to help straighten sounds right up my alley!

IMG_4088

I started out by washing and conditioning my hair with Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner. I then applied the Style-Prep Smoother to my damp hair.

Followed that by adding Naturally Straight to my hair, and then began styling as normal!

The end result looked amazing! I am so frustrated because I took before/after pictures …. and the iOS8 update ate them up off my phone! You’re going to just have to imagine me dreamy and sexy and straightened. It was beautiful!

How to Use the Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Products:

Step 1: Wash hair with Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Shampoo and follow with Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Conditioner. Towel dry hair and comb through.
Step 2: Apply Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Style-Prep Smoother to damp hair, by working it through from the mid-shaft through the ends of hair.
Step 3: Apply Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight. Depending on hair length and thickness, start by using approximately a small coin sized drop of Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight styling creme on towel-dried, still-damp hair, applying it one section at a time.
Step 4: Blow-dry hair straight using the brush of your choice. Flat iron if desired.

Go from naturally curly to naturally straight. Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight is a lightweight styling creme that progressively loosens curls every time you style. 

As you straighten your hair, Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight’s naturally derived plant fibers invisibly attach to hair to loosen curl and help lock in straightness. The formula’s humidity barrier of organic cassava extract and maize defends against frizz. The more you use it, the easier it is to create straight, smooth styles, so you can spend less time with a blow dryer and flat iron every day. It is safe for relaxed and color treated hair. After five consecutive applications of Naturally Straight, hair will stay straight for up to three washes.

Watch the Aveda Smooth Infusion™ tutorial below for more tips.

Aveda Naturally Straight retails for $26.00/5 oz., 150 ml and is available at Aveda stores and salons and online at aveda.com. To find a location near you, visit aveda.com.

Would you try clip-on bangs like Selena Gomez?

Selena Gomez debuted a new look this week with help from Hairdo Clip-in Bangs. These easy-to-attach bangs changed the star’s look in seconds, without the commitment (no scissors required.)

This fall season, road test Selena’s new look with a Hairdo Clip-in Hair Bangs. This 5″ long blunt cut bang is available in 11 shades here!

According to Nine Zero One Salon Stylist Florido Basallo, who used the Hairdo Clip-In Bang to help create Selena’s look: “These pieces are a great option for those who want bangs, but don’t want to make the commitment.”

I HATE bangs…. because I don’t have the patience to put up with the grow-out. This seems like the perfect way to change up your look without committing to something permanent!

How do you feel about clip-on bangs?
