Elizabeth Olsen stuns at the NYC Met Gala!

Dove celebrity hair stylist Mark Townsend styled the Olsen sisters (Mary-Kate, Ashley AND Elizabeth!) for Fashion’s biggest night — the 2014 Met Ball.

For Elizabeth’s first trip to the Met Gala, Mark wanted to keep her hair really fresh and sophisticated but with a bit of edge to it.

Mark’s Quick & Easy Step-by-Step Style:

1. We were working on her press junket for Godzilla during the day, so her hair already had lots of texture. To play that up, I used a double-barrel iron to create an uneven bend throughout.
2. Mark then sprayed Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray at her roots to give it that added volume and blow dry with your fingers.
3. In order to pull it up, Mark created three large sections from the top, sides and bottom. He pulled the bottom piece into a pony at the nape of the neck, then he took the two sides, pulled them straight back, and secured them with two bobby pins, letting the ends hang over the ponytail.
4. Next, Mark pulled the top section back and pinned it to the same hair from the sides at the back of the head. The result is a modern take of half-up, half-down hair!

Fun Hair Fact:
For an added touch of glamour, Mark sewed a Cartier pin into the hair using only bobby pins as a base.

Last night’s Met Gala brought out all of Hollywood’s hottest stars!

There are so many pictures from last night’s big event and I’ll post as quickly as I can! My favorite couple from the night was Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds. How gorgeous are they!? Blake wore a custom made gown by Gucci, and Ryan wore a suit by Gucci.

Too hot to handle!

Contouring is such a hot trend right now, and Avon’s latest innovation shows us that you can get defined, chiseled features with not only makeup, but with skincare too. Avon has developed an advanced lifting product that targets the four key facial zones prone to sagging–cheeks, chin, jowls and jaw—to tighten, define, firm and contour the look of skin. So now you can put your best face forward with Avon’s ANEW Clinical Infinite Lift Targeted Contouring Serum.

The Breakthrough: Understanding women want tighter, firmer more lifted looking skin, the anti-aging pioneers at Avon developed an advanced lifting product that targets visible signs of sagging and provides a multi-dimensional looking lift that tightens, defines, firms, and contours the look of skin. The specialized treatment in ANEW Clinical Infinite Lift is for areas prone to sagging to help with an overall lifted look to leave skin looking visibly tighter and younger.

ANEW Clinical Infinite Lift Targeted Contouring Serum ($39.99): Featuring a unique massaging applicator to target the four key facial zones prone to sagging (cheeks, chin, jowls, jaw), this effective serum combines the PolyPeptide Lift Complex with a high concentration of seven instant skin-tighteners including a pharmaceutical grade one for fast acting, fast lifting results.

From the Expert: “The ANEW Clinical Infinite Lift is a targeted very advanced, highly effective way to dramatically lift the look of skin. Powered by the innovation of PolyPeptide Lift Complex, this is a game changer.” – Dr. Cheryl Karcher, NYC Board-certified Dermatologist and Professional Consultant for Avon

Are you signed up with From the Lab yet?

You know what I love about From the Lab (see below)? You don’t get sample-sized-samples. You get FULL SIZED SAMPLES! Who doesn’t love that? I really hate samples (like, it’s a problem). We get a lot of samples for the site – and if you don’t send me a full-sized sample, 9 times out of 10 I’m not even going to try it. Why? Because if I LOVE IT but can’t afford it – I don’t want to be tempted with a little ounce of heaven? Get my drift? I need to really COMMIT to my samples to see if I love it or not. How can you tell if you really love something until you’ve used it for a couple weeks, month? You won’t get that from an itty-bitty sample!

Anyhoo….From the Lab is proud to introduce the NEW way to wash your hair with Transforming Hair Cleanser No. 724. Ditch the sudsy shampoos that contain harsh sulfates that strip hair of nutrients and protectants and revamp your locks with a unique blend of oils and patented raspberry stem cell technology. This product will take your hair to a new level of shine and softness with castor seed oil, sweet almond oil and berryflux vita.

There is no hair-type too straight or too curly to reap the benefits of this innovative shampoo! Transforming Hair Cleanser No. 724 enhances thin, damaged hair by strengthening and promoting new hair growth, while curly and coarse hair is left weightless and tamed through the use of andiroba oil, an ingredient brand new to the U.S.

Once No. 724 gets into the hands of big beauty companies, this product is predicted to retail at upwards of $60 a bottle, but From the Lab is offering this revolutionary product for less than half the cost at $29.95!
