I’m in love with Clairol’s Root Touch Up!

I’m in between colorings right now, and my roots were in desperate need of help. I’m starting to find gray hairs – so I try to stay on top of coloring my hair. Thing is – constantly dying my hair is making it brittle and dry! So I try to space out the coloring, but when I do that – my roots really show!

I went to Safeway yesterday, and picked up Clairol’s Root Touch-Up for only $6.99! I was VERY skeptical, because A) I’ve always used the same brand of hair dye, so switching it up makes me nervous and B) it comes with this little teenie bottle of hair dye (which didn’t look like enough!).  BUT I was pursuaded by its promise to match my hair dye – GUARANTEED!

I grabbed the Dark Brown box – and went home.

I read the instructions – how can it be this easy? Apply to roots with the color using a handy little brush – and leave on for 10 minutes. That’s it!

I applied the hair dye directly to the roots of the hair that frames my face, and came back downstairs to work for a 10 minutes. After about 10 minutes, I showered the dye off – and amazingly, this product delivered exactly what it promised! Check out the picture below! The roots match my hair color perfectly! The grays are gone, and my hair looks like I’ve just dyed it!

I love this product, and I’m happy I found it. It’s going to save me from dying all my hair constantly!

You can find this product at any drug store – heck, any grocery store probably carries it. Give it a try!

Katy Perry lands another beauty contract!

Katy Perry is already the face of Proactiv skincare, and the legs of Schick Quattro. Now she can add her hair to the mix!

She’s just signed on to be the face (or hair) of U.K. based hairstyling and appliance brand ghd.

“Sassy, stylish and sexy, Katy is the perfect partner for ghd,” the brand’s CEO, Paul Stoneham, said today.

Within the next month, the singer, 26, will start appearing in print and television ads for ghd, shot by famed photographer David LaChapelle, and the brand will act as the international tour sponsor for Perry’s “California Dreams 2011″ tour that kicked off in Europe last month.

Check out Kate Winslet’s adorable new platinum pixie cut!

Kate Winslet has traded in her long blond hair for a new short platinum ‘do!

She shows off her shocking new look in the April issue of British Vogue.

In the revealing interview, she opens up about her recent divorce from husband Sam Mendes. She also opens up about her famous curves,

“I was a lot more voluptuous when I was younger,” she says. “I felt I had to defend my body, and took a very public stand, which I still absolutely believe in. But I’ve stopped talking about it now. And, at a certain point, it does become hypocritical.” Now, at 35, the actress is into Pilates and running, “not very well, I might add,” but mainly keeps busy by raising her children, 10-year-old Mia and 7-year-old Joe.

However, that doesn’t mean the mom can’t have some fun! In the accompanying photos, shot by Mario Testino, Winslet works that hair — and looks divine. “I’m embarking on a new chapter in my adult life,” she shares. “And I’m single. And it doesn’t scare me at all.”

What do you think of her new look? (I love it, not gonna lie!)


Get Natalie Portman and Reese Witherspoon’s Oscar Hair – styled by Fekkai!

INSPIRATION: A glamorous bohemian style that’s soft, romantic, and feminine

HOW TO:

1) Apply an anti-frizz product and volumizer before blow-drying the hair smooth using a round brush.

2) Then curl the hair using a 1” curling iron to create soft and feminine waves.

3) Next, create a foundation for the style by backcombing the bottom layers of the hair.

4) Sweep the hair to the left side of her face, securing with bobby pins.

5) For a finishing touch Didier used one of Natalie’s earrings as a shimmery accent piece.

6) Secure the look with a sheer hairspray.

She was so beautiful last night! I thought she looked great, and I was so happy she won the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in ‘Black Swan’.

Frederic Fekkai’s Renato Campora styled Presenter, Reese Witherspoon.

INSPIRATION: To compliment her gown, Renato channeled a mod-60’s high ponytail over combined with the top glamour

HOW TO:

1) Create the foundation for the style by applying Fekkai Coiff™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel and the Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless™ Smooth Finish Serum.

2) Blow-dry hair with the Fekkai Large Round Brush to enhance fullness and volume.

3) Divide the hair into two sections.

4) Using a 1 ½ curling iron create movement and volume on the bottom layer.

5) Tease the roots of the top section to create the volume.

6) Finish the look by spraying Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray to secure the silhouette and shape of the style
