Introducing John Frieda’s Satin Hair Straightener!

John Frieda has released an awesome new hair straightener! Introducing the Satin Finish Hair Straightener! It has Advanced Ionic technology to reduce frizz and enhance shine.  With 15-second heat up and high heat, you can reach the variety of styles you desire.  It heats up to 455°F, for pinpoint styling.

(Okay, I have to ask…. can you imagine using a straightener at 455 degrees! WOW!)

I have very finnicky hair. We’re talking stubborn. It can’t decide if it’s straight – or curly – and has made me late to parties more times than I can count. I need good tools, like these, to help ease my pain. If I’m curling or straightening my hair, I know I can trust John Frieda’s tools. They have never steered me wrong, and they last a lifetime. I have now this straightener and a couple curling irons (oh, and a rod) and I LOVE THEM. They heat up in a second, and then the results last for hours!

You can buy this tool at Target – or by going here!

John Frieda styling products I’m loving right now!

Up until I had my first child, my hair was straight as a board. My hair wouldn’t hold a curl – or a perm – nada. It was very frustrating, especially considering I have a sister with the most beautiful naturally curly hair you’ve ever seen. All I wanted was beautiful curly hair! After my first son was born in 2000, it seems like I woke up the next morning with wavy hair. It has a natural wave to it, but I wouldn’t call it curly. I’ve had shorter hair my entire life – and in the last year or two – I’ve decided to let it grow out. Now that my hair is longer, I have the opportunity to do more with it!

I’ve tried rollers, curling irons, many things. And then this John Frieda curling iron came in the mail, and I was really excited to try it out! The picture above is Erin and I out for a girls night, and I used this curling iron – WITH the John Frieda products listed below! The products were amazing in setting my curls. My curls never relaxed – ALL NIGHT!! I know it’s hard to tell in the picture above, but I had beautiful, natural-looking curls.

I was very nervous about using a wand…but this tool makes it easy! It comes with this little glove so you don’t burn your fingers. It’s easy to use, and the results are beautiful!!

Get The Look: Rose Byrne at the 2013 SAG Awards

Inspired by the retro, feminine look of Rose Byrne’s gown, John Frieda International Creative Consultant Harry Josh created a modern take on the classic wave by keeping them controlled, glossy and flat to the head.

Step 1 – Prep

Josh applied a few pumps of the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Formula Hair Serum ($9.99 at drugstores) through wet hair and blow dried using a large, round bristle brush. “The key to this look is a flawless blowout,” said Josh. ” Her waves need to be completely controlled and any hint of frizz would disrupt the style.”

Step 2 – Style

After sectioning off the hair, Josh wrapped each section around a small curling iron and then carefully brushed it out.

Step 3 – Perfect

Josh finished off the look by applying a sheer coat of John Frieda Frizz-Ease 100% Shine ($5.99 at drugstores) to ensure that her waves glistened when the light from the flash bulbs hit on


Get The Look: Claire Danes at the 2013 Golden Globes.

Claire Danes looked gorgeous last night! It’s shocking she had a baby just a few weeks ago she looked amazing.

Claire Danes 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards January 13, 2013

Makeup:

Claire Danes’ gorgeous and glamorous Laura Mercier makeup look from this evening’s Golden Globe Awards. Matin Maulawizada, Global Artistry Director for Laura Mercier, created a “sexy, fun look” for “Homeland” star, Claire Danes, who is nominated for a Golden Globe Award in the “Best Performance by An Actress in a Television Series – Drama” category.

Eyes: Maulawizada determined that a sultry, smoky eye would perfectly complement the star’s glamorous, red Versace dress. “I decided to go with a smoky eye and not a red lip since the dress was so red,” stated Maulawizada.

  • Maulawizada accomplished this by applying Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Liner in Black ($22) on Danes’ top lids and under her eyes “to create depth and shape.”
  • Next he applied Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony ($22) with Laura Mercier Flat Eye Liner Brush ($25) to “deepen the lash line.” He then rimmed the inside of the eyes using Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold ($20) to “intensify the depth and to create a contrast with Claire’s blue eyes.”
  • Maulawizada added the final touch of glamour by applying multiple coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara ($24) to Claire’s upper lashes.

Lips: Maulawizada used neutral colours to “contour the lips” and make them appear “pouty, à la an early ‘90s supermodel pout.”

  • He first defined the lips using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Hazelnut ($20).
  •  Then he contoured and shaded in the lips with Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Praline ($20).
  • Lastly he applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Angelic ($26) to make the colour a “bit more beige and quiet.”

Face: Maulawizada determined that “glowy, warm skin” would be the perfect canvas for Danes’ sultry makeup look.

  • First, he applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20 in Almond ($45) to warm up Claire’s skin tone.
  • Next he sparingly used Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage #3 ($30) to “cover up little imperfections and darkness under the eyes, which she really doesn’t have.”
  • On her cheeks, Maulawizada applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Blaze ($24) followed by Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette ($48) to “highlight, bronze and make her even more glowy.”
  • Lastly he used a combination of Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent ($35) and Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($22) to set Claire’s makeup and concealer.
  • To ensure Danes glowed from head to toe, Maulawizada applied Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight ($32) over Laura Mercier Repair Eye Serum ($80) on Claire’s shoulders and arms.

Hair:

Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler created Claire Danes’ look for tonight’s Golden Globes in Los Angeles. Taking inspiration from the Homeland actress’ red-hot Versace gown, Butler gave Claire sexy, loose waves, likening her to a modern-day Jessica Rabbit.

Step 1 – Prep
Blowdry hair with a large, round, boar bristle brush. Take a curling iron with a 1 1/2 inch barrel and start curling hair section by section. Set the curls with Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hairspray ($5.99 at drugstores).

Step 2 – Style
To create the perfect wave, use a paddle brush to brush through curls. Apply Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème ($5.99 at drugstores) throughout the hair–it will soften hair and add shine while leaving the curls chunky and intact.

Step 3 – Perfect
Finish by adding a fine mist of Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray to lock in the style.
