Coming this May – Fekkai Advanced!

Luxury Hair Care Revolutionized. Beauty Revealed.

“Whenever a woman uses Fekkai, she must feel she is in the very best of hands. Now when she uses Fekkai Advanced, she will feel like she is in my own hands”.  —Frédéric Fekkai

The Fekkai Advanced collection of luxury hair care redefines the original Fekkai product families, elevating them with new technologies, textures and fragrances for an experience like never before. Combining select ingredients and advanced technologies in every facet of development, the Fekkai Advanced line delivers salon-proven results through a blending of luxury and science.

The Salon Technician Color Care collection is for women with weakened, color-treated hair who wish to keep the condition of their hair as fresh as the day they left the salon. Infused with South East Asian cultivated galanga root, a known powerful natural UV shield that works in conjunction with Fekkai’s intensive, Anti-Fade Color Complex to add protection benefits. Utilizing a unique combination of nature and science, Quarternized complex targets damaged hair and seals the cuticle with a conditioning layer. The Salon Technician Color Care collection includes:

Get Kate Hudson’s MET Ball Look with Living Proof

Inspiration: A day spent sun-bathing in San Tropez

The look: Elegant yet flirty, not too coiffed but still full of body and texture.

How to get the look: David Babaii used Living Proof Full to give Kate Hudson’s fine, limp blonde hair a thicker feel. He rubbed the product between his fingers to activate the ingredients and applied FULL from root to shaft. He rough dried the entire head to add additional volume. He then created a side part and formed a braid along the side of her face. He gathered all the hair back into a low bun at the nape of the neck, pulling the braid back with the rest, creating a sexy, cool up-do.

Babaii said, “Usually I am afraid to braid Kate’s hair because it is so fine, but Living Proof Full added the dimension and depth I needed to create this fabulous red carpet look.”

InStyle’s Best Beauty Buys Editors’ Picks

Neutrogena Acne Wash

Our trusty cleanser with a zingy new grapefruit scent. This invigorating face wash tackles pimples and sloughs off debris with a powerful dose of salicylic acid (exactly 2 percent)—but it doesn’t dry out the skin, even when used both in the morning and at night. ($7, drugstore.com)

Fresh Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15

This is the lip color you wish you had been born with—and because the sheer, rosy hue flatters all complexions, people might believe that you were. Bonus: The pigment is delivered in an oil-rich bullet that hydrates every bit as well as your thickest balm (without the goop factor). ($23, fresh.com)

DDF Advanced Moisture Defense UV Cream SPF 15

Flaky skin will happily soak up this rich cream, which is infused with turmeric, an Indian spice with powerful antioxidant properties. In clinical studies it made skin feel firmer and decreased fine lines in eight weeks. We’re just as pleased with the immediate results: plump, quenched skin, and a healthy glow. ($105, ddfskincare.com)

Aveeno Nourish + Moisturize

The hydrating wheat complex of this shampoo and conditioner penetrates the hair shaft, repairing strands from the inside out. It rinses away, leaving no residue, and has a gentle, unassuming scent. ($8, cvs.com)

Colgate Wisp

Sure, they’re tiny, but their effect is titanic! The breath-freshening beads nestled in these disposable toothbrushes don’t require water or rinsing. Bonus: They’ll fit into the smallest of evening bags for hassle-free cleaning. ($8, drugstore.com)
