I thought Blake Lively’s dress at last night’s Emmy Awards was beautiful, but her HAIR! UGH! I thought it looked terrible!  The braid is just weird looking! It’s too thick, and too high. I thought her hair would have been so beautiful down, and curly – but this look was a hot mess (at least I thought so).

What did you think?

Fashion Week Hair Secrets Revealed

A chic bun is a great style for any hair type, any event and any outfit. The only issue is keeping the bun to stay put.

Celebrity hair stylist, Philip Pelusi and his Tela design team created chic little chignons for Caroline Seikaly’s Mercedes Benz fashion week presentation at Tela Design Studios.

The secret, according to Philip Pelusi, is to spray the length of your hair/ponytail with holding spray before twisting your hair into bun. The hairspray gives texture to the strands, allowing them to be easily manipulated. Most people spray the bun after, when they are already have the hair pinned and set, this is a much less affective method in keeping the hair to stay in place.

Tyra Banks showed off her REAL HAIR today on her talk show.

I don’t see what all the hype is about. It’s dripping wet – there’s no way to tell what her hair really looks like! I want to see her real hair dry – with products or whatever…

Curls are the must have hairstyle for fall and they’ve been spotted everywhere from soft cascading waves, to halos of curls, powerful amplified shapes, and even loose natural waves circa the 1940s.  Achieve these hot looks and protect your hair color with CurlWave Styling Cream from COLURE True Color Care, $25.00. All of COLURE’s products are free of parabens, sulfates, alcohol, perfumes, dyes and other chemicals that could possibly strip color.

I’ve tried this cream, and I love it. My hair bounces from straight to curly all the time, and usually falls somewhere in between, a big ol’ hot mess. This product helped define my curls, and give them bounce!
