Get the Look: 2012 People’s Choice Awards

Did you catch the People’s Choice Awards last night? In case you missed it, sexy beach waves and pale pink polish were hit trends on the red carpet. Below are tips from Butterfly Studio Salon stylist, Vanessa Fernandez, and As U Wish Nail Spa owner, Skyy Hadley on how you can re-create the looks of Julianne Hough, Ashley Greene and Ashley Benson!

To give yourself a red carpet ready manicure at home in minutes follow these easy steps from celeb manicurist, Skyy Hadley.

  1. Remove any nail polish and wash your hands. Always start a manicure with clean hands.
  2. File your nails. I recommend squoval shaped nails for the winter. Start with the square shape and tilt the file underneath the corners and file back and forth from the underneath up. This will gradually round out the edges. If your nails are too square during cold winter months they can crack and break easily.
  3. Lightly buff your nails to remove any ridges.
  4. Rub a cuticle oil or cream on your cuticles, you can use olive oil or Vaseline if you don’t have cuticle oil, and push your cuticles back with a cuticle pusher. This will lengthen your nail and give a clean look.
  5. Apply a thin layer of base coat to all nails.
  6. Apply two even coats of pale pink or nude polish to your nails.
  7. Always finish with a layer of clear top coat to extend the life of your manicure and give it that professional shine.

Julianne Hough’s Sexy Bouncy Waves

  •  Begin with clean towel dried hair
  •  Apply a volumizing mousse like the Kerastase Mousse Substantive before blowing out your hair with a 1 ½”round brush to create bouncy waves.
  • Using a 1 1/2″-1 1/4″ wide curling iron, grab 1″ vertical sections of hair and curl away from your face.
  •  Shake your hair out from underneath to create a sexy bounce
  • Finish with a medium hold hair spray like Shu Uemura’s Sheer Lacquer.

Ashley Greene’s Seductive Long Waves

  •  Begin with clean towel dried hair
  • Twist 1″ sections of hair away from your face going all around your head and apply a curl enhancing cream like the Shu Uemura Kaze Wave and air dry or diffuse until 90% dry.
  •  Apply a heat protecting spray like the Kerastase Fibre Architecte to protect hair from the heat of the iron and create a shinier look.
  • Using a 1” wide curling iron, grab 1″ random vertical sections of hair and wrap around barrel and curl away from your face.
  • Run your hands through when done for separation.
  •  Finish with a medium hold hair spray like Shu Uemura’s Sheer Lacquer.

Ashley Benson’s Textured Waves

  • Begin with clean towel dried hair. Wrap hair in towel to remove excess water and to start creating texture
  • Use a light pomade such as Magic Move Light and twist random sections of hair to create more texture.
  • Use a blow dryer to set each section by twisting and applying heat at the same time. If needed, use a clipless curling iron about 3/4″-1″ to set in waves by wrapping sections around the barrel away from face and when releasing each piece pulling on it to make more of a stretched out wave.
