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.

~CONTEST 2~ Holiday Hair Essentials from John Freida!

Make Her Up’s 10 Days of Christmas Giveaways continues!

For our second giveaway, we’ve teamed with John Freida to give THREE lucky winners ALL SIX of these products below!!

(1) Luxurious Volume Extra Hold Hair Spray – This innovative, ultra-light formula creates body and volume with a boost of shine for high-impact styles that last all day. The salon-style anhydrous (water-free) formula contains a high-hold polymer to lock in style fast without drying hair. Spray the product all over to thicken and hold style, or spot-apply for targeted lift.

There are plenty of things you have to suffer through when winter sets in—freezing temperatures, puffy coats, non-stop holiday music—but there’s one winter woe you shouldn’t have to put up with: flat hair. When winter weather and hat-wearing leave your hair limp, pump it back up with help from the John Frieda® Luxurious Volume collection. Formulated to restore hair’s thickness, fullness and lift, the products in the collection deliver a three-dimensional volume boost that revives flat winter hair.

(1) Root Awakening® Nourish + Style Lotion – This lightweight formula hydrates the scalp and hair for long-lasting, silky, shiny style without weighing hair down.

The foundation for healthy-feeling, flawless fall hair. After a summer of overexposure to the elements, your hair needs serious R&R before experimenting with fall style. Start the process of rehabbing your hair by rebalancing your scalp with help from the John Frieda Root Awakening® collection. Whether you’re battling dry scalp and breakage-prone hair or an oily scalp and dry hair, there’s a Root Awakening® solution specifically designed to nourish and invigorate your scalp while giving you the style you crave. Specifically formulated with natural Eucalyptus and purifying Peppermint extract, the line is free of harsh ingredients and chemical smells. Each formula provides the ideal balance of nourishment and moisture. Choose the shampoo, conditioner and styler for you to get your fall style off to the right start.

 (1 EACH) Full Body Shampoo & Full Body Conditioner - Formulated with Inca Inchi oil, this bodifying shampoo repairs the look and feel of overworked hair as it weightlessly restores bounce for full, flowing styles. ALSO - Omega-rich Inca Inchi oil repairs hair as the formula smoothes and detangles, reducing the risk of breakage and snagging when combing or brushing.

A revolutionary way to repair hair without sacrificing style. The style-obsessed woman stops at nothing to achieve the look she craves: No blow dryer is too hot, no color is too harsh, and no damage is too severe. But getting that picture-perfect style comes at a price—overworked hair weakens, breaks, dulls and falls flat, forcing her to make a choice: repair her hair at the expense of her look or keep on striving for superior style and risk more damage. With new Full Repair™ from John Frieda® Hair Care, there’s no tradeoff—she can repair her hair and style at the same time, escaping the cycle of damage today. . . and every day after.

(1) Box Precision Foam Color in your shade!  Some of the most sought-after custom blends created in the salon, available at home for the first time. When John Frieda® Hair Care experts first debuted Precision Foam Colour, the innovation brought home salon color expertise like never before, providing unprecedented access to salon-caliber precision and stylist-selected shades. Now the John Frieda® Hair Care experts are taking the salon benefits one step further, offering the kind of expert shade blends previously only available at the salon.

The Precision Foam Colour Salon Blends incorporate hues from multiple tone families, for the same kind of blended effect professional colorists offer. The five new shades are professionally pre-blended, salon-exclusive shades, including a dark cool pearl blonde, dark caramel blonde, light amber brown, light bronze brown, and cool almond brown. Combined with the precise coverage Kao Corporation’s proprietary foam provides, the salon blends offer the complete salon color experience—flawless results in the shades women want. The new collection includes:

* Dark Caramel Blonde (Natural/Beige/Gold)

* Dark Cool Pearl Blonde (Pearl/Beige/Natural)

* Lightest Cool Almond Brown (Pearl/Beige/Natural)

* Light Bronze Brown (Natural/Beige/Copper)

* Light Amber Brown (Natural/Beige/Gold)

 In addition to the new salon blends, John Frieda® Hair Care experts are also debuting five new shades of Precision Foam Colour, rounding out the stylist-selected shade palette. The new additions include:

* Brilliant Brunette® Light Ash Brown

* Brilliant Brunette® Medium Ash Brown

* Radiant Red® Medium Burgundy

* Luminous Blue Black

(1) John Freida Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon - Frizz-EaseÒ Secret WeaponÒ is the perfect crème to finish off all styles – straight or curly. The innovative formula is designed to instantly transform puffy, parched hair into a perfectly smooth and supple look. Frizz-EaseÒ Secret WeaponÒ can be reapplied as often as necessary and will help camouflage imperfections and split ends while restoring moisture and replacing natural oils lost through heat styling. The result is a healthy-looking and ultra shiny finish.

(1) Clear Shine Luminous Glaze - Want hair with intense shine and dramatically smooth texture? The answer is now crystal-clear. Introducing Luminous Color Glaze™ Clear Shine from the John Frieda® Collection experts – a color-free version of the breakthrough Luminous Color Glaze™ formula that single-handedly created the at-home glazing category.

The original Luminous Color Glaze™ formula was the first product ever invented to give women the benefits of in-salon glazing at home: shine, re-texturization and the addition of gradual color. However, the John Frieda® hair care experts recognized that some women don’t want to add or boost their hair color. So, Luminous Color Glaze™ Clear Shine has been created to allow women to have the same remarkable shine and texture benefits of the original formula minus the color enhancement. Completely free of ammonia, dye and peroxide, it is ideal for women who already love their hair color – whether color-treated in the salon or at home, or for those that remain natural – and don’t want to add any color. In other words, if you are looking to solely up the shine wattage and soften the feel of your hair, then this is the formula for you.
