Top summer hair and make-up celebrity trends


We’ve seen a lot of crazy beauty fads come and go lately, but there are a few wearable ones that have become hallmarks of summer 2017.

Celebrities like Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart and Emily Ratajkowski have helped propel platinum pixie cuts, orange eyeshadow, here-today-gone-tomorrow bangs and more into the season’s top beauty trends.

The popularity of the looks are showing no signs of slowing down, so now is the perfect time to give one (or more) of them a try. 

For real? Vanessa Hudgens, 28, is the most recent celebrity to take to Instagram to show off faux bangs

One set of fringe, two ways: Jennifer Yepez gave Emily Ratajkowski, 26, fake bangs when her hair was both down and pulled back

Thanks to hairstylists like Jennifer Yepez and Jen Atkin, clip-in bangs were the must-have accessory during the Cannes Film Festival in May.

The hair pros used them to transform the manes of stars like Lily Collins, Emily Ratajkowski and Salma Hayek.

In June, Jen accented Bella Hadid’s blunt bob with yet another set of faux fringe for the CFDA Awards, and Jennifer brought back Emily’s thick bangs during Paris Couture Week in July.

They faked it, too! Bella Hadid (pictured), 20, Cara Delevingne, 24, and Salma Hayek, 50, have all also used clip-in bangs to transform their looks this season

The real deal: Sofia Vergara, 45, cut her fringe for real back in July

Since then, the clip-in style has also been spotted on Cara Delevingne and, most recently, Vanessa Hudgens.

The only A-lister to make a permanent bang change this summer has been Sofia Vergara, who cut hers in July and hasn’t been seen without them since.

If you’re not ready to try fringe for real, try Hairdo Effortless Clip-In Bangs ($26.50, qvc.com) or True by Ellen Wille Clip-In Bangs ($384, wigs.com). You may want to take them to your stylist to have them cut or dyed to match your natural hair.

Short hair, don't care: Katy has gradually taken her crop shorter, choosing to leave it longer on the top and front, while Cara is growing out hers after shaving her head in April

If there has been one defining haircut of the summer, it’s been the platinum pixie. 

Ever since Cara Delevingne shaved her head for her role in the film Life in a Year back in April, multiple stars have followed suit, opting for the slightly longer, grown-out version Cara has been sporting lately.

During the Chanel Couture Show in Paris in July, for example, attendees Cara and Katy Perry were practically indistinguishable from each other.

Kristen Stewart and Zoe Kravitz have also taken the platinum plunge in recent months.

If you’ve been considering joining the club, celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak, who works with Cara says, ‘DO IT!’

Once you’ve gone the bleached route, protect your color – and your hair – with products like It’s a 10 Haircare’s Five Minute Hair Repair For Blondes mask ($21, itsa10haircare.com) and John Frieda Sheer Blonde Brilliantly Brighter Shampoo and Conditioner ($10 each, ulta.com).

Orange you glad they didn't wear a different color? Jourdun Dunn (pictured), 27, and Selena Gomez, 25, have proved how versatile the bright eyeshadow shade can be

Orange eyeshadow has been trending for a while, but it has recently reached peek color status due to stars like Jourdan Dunn, Selena Gomez, Chloe Grace Moretz, Zendaya and more.

So what’s with the newfound crush on orange? Lucy Hale’s make-up artist Kelsey Deenihan explained it to Femail this way: ‘We have the smoky eyes, and a lot of times you see them done in jewel tones or the bronze smoky eye, but the new colors, like orange, are a fun way to give a new take on a classic eye.’

The proliferation of palettes built around the shade certainly don’t hurt, either. The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette ($54, sephora.com) and MAC Girls Palette in Mischief Minx ($39.50, nordstrom.com) make it easy to play around with the bold hue.    

From wavy to straight: After Jen Atkin cut 33-year-old Khloe Kardashian's hair into a short bob (pictured), fellow stylist Justine Marjan straighted her strands into a sleek '90s style

Like seemingly everything ’90s, pin-straight hairstyles are back. 

One need not look further than the Kardashian-Jenner clan for proof. Kim Kardashian West, Kendall Jenner and Khloe Kardashian have all shown an affinity for sleek strands lately.

Kendall regularly wears her long bob parted down the middle and stick straight, oftentimes the work of stylist Jen Atkin.

All in the family: Khloe's sisters Kendall Jenner (pictured), 21, and Kim Kardashian West, 36, have also stepped out with stick-straight, high-gloss manes in the past few months

Jen also provided the impetus for Khloe to take the trend for a spin when she cut the Kardashian sister’s hair into a chin-length bob on Monday. Shortly after, fellow hair pro Justine Marjan gave the cut a ‘super straight and ’90s’ style.

And less than week ago, Chris Appleton gave Kim a waist-length, high-gloss style.

To copy the look, bust out your flat iron (we like Amika The Antidote Silk Wrap Styler, $150, sephora.com). Just don’t forget a heat protectant (try Jen’s Ouai Smooth Spray, $26, theouai.com) and shine serum (pick up Tresemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum, $5, target.com).

Peach hair is the newest celebrity colour craze and you can get it at home


This year has seen quite a few colourful hair trends. From pastels to hot pinks and coloured roots to bleached tips, it seems women are keener than ever to try something a little bit different with their hair.

This summer it’s all about the lighter tones, and pastels are more popular than ever.

Now, thanks to celebrities like Lady Gaga, Sienna Miller, Kate Hudson and Kylie Jenner, the must-have tone of the moment is peach.

Whether you’re dabbling with a tint or going all out with a deep peach pigment, this colour is surprisingly flattering on a lot of skin tones.

And, if you like the look but aren’t sure about the commitment, then you have plenty of wash out and semi-permanents dye options at your fingertips.

Bear in mind that if you have dark hair, you’ll have to lighten it before going pastel, or the colour won’t show. Best results can be seen on light to mid-blonde hair.

Get the look at home with L’Oreal’s Paris Colorista Washout for just £5.99.

Kardashian-approved stylist Jen Atkin dishes on the top hair trends


Summer’s here, so that means it’s time to change up your hair routine.

While days at the beach call for relaxed updos, the lighter-for-later nights call for sultry (and celebratory) looks that usher in the top hair trend of the season: texture.

“Texture is really popular in the summer because we’re laying out by the pool or are out at the beach and I think it just gives you that really beautiful look,” Jen Atkin, a celebrity hairstylist and founder of the hair product line OUAI, says. “I think of Gisele (Bundchen) when I think of texture. A gorgeous supermodel from Brazil. That’s what (summer) texture is.”

To help you get inspired, Atkin put together a roster of four of her favourite hairstyles for the warm-weather season — complete with how-to steps.

And the best part? Her summer style hit list — including two beach-appropriate looks — include at least one creation that can work with virtually every hair type and length. Plus, each look can be created in a few steps (think: less than 10).

To create each look, Atkin employed the new Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and a handful of her favourite products from her own hair product line, OUAI.

Here’s what she’s come up with.

Jen Atkin, pictured third from left, partnered with Dyson Supersonic to create her top summer hairstyles.

 “Paparazzi-Proof Sleek & Straight” A model sports the "Paparazzi-Proof Sleek & Straight" style by celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin.

  1. Prep damp hair with a mousse.
  2. Blow-dry hair section by section using a medium-sized round brush.
  3. Once completely dry, pass through the hair in sections with a boar-bristle brush, followed by a flatiron. (Atkin’s pro tip: Straighten from the mid-length of the hair rather than from root to tip to keep strand from falling flat.) 
  4. For fine and medium hair apply dry shampoo foam near the roots. (Atkin’s pro tip: Use a root concealer along your part and hairline for an extra-polished look.)
  5. Use a shot of cool air from your hair dryer to calm the hair’s cuticle and increase shine.
  6. Spray some hairspray onto a toothbrush and use it to smooth any flyaways.
  7. Finish by sealing in ends with hair oil.

 

 

 

 

“Girls Night Out Curls” "Girls Night Out Curls" created by Jen Atkin.

  1. Prep damp hair with wave spray.
  2. For naturally curly hair, follow with curl gel to help define natural waves.
  3. Dry hair using a hair dryer and diffuser nozzle on lowest speed and medium heat. (Atkin’s pro tip: Use the diffuser as a cup to hold hair as it dries — flipping head upside down if needed.
  4. Once hair is dry, apply dry shampoo foam to roots for fullness
  5. Use a finishing creme throughout hair to help keep curls uniform and controlled.
  6. Use a matte pomade to separate and define a few select curls.
  7. Finish with a light mist of texturizing spray for added volume and hold. 

 

 

 

 

 

“Vacation Twisted Topknot” A model sports the "Vacation Twisted Topknot" style by celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin.

  1. Prep damp hair with wave spray and a small amount of mousse — just at the roots.
  2. Rough-dry hair using a smoothing nozzle. (Atkin’s pro tip: While drying, use a small, flat paddle brush to smooth the sections near the hairline and nape of the neck as they will be on full display with this updo.)
  3. Brush out hair and spritz with a texturizing hairspray.
  4. Divide hair into two sections, from ear to ear using a brush or comb. Secure the top section into a ponytail. Repeat with the bottom section, brushing hair upwards or flipping your head upside, if needed.
  5. Tie the two ponytails together tightly using a third hair elastic or band.
  6. Spray texturizing hairspray through the ends of the hair and gently backcomb.
  7. Twist hair into a knot and secure with large bobby pins. (Atkin’s pro tip: Fill in the hairline with root concealer for a more polished look.)
  8. Finish by spraying a medium-hold hairspray onto a toothbrush to smooth flyaways.

 

 

 

“Pinterest Situation Mohawk Braid Topknot”A model sports the "Pinterest Situation Mohawk Braid Topknot" style by celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin.

  1. Spritz hair with a wave spray.
  2. If hair is freshly washed, use a hair dryer and styling-concentrator nozzle set to medium speed and medium heat and blowout hair using a large round brush. (Atkin’s pro tip: Be sure to aim airflow away from your head as you dry to avoid increasing frizz and flyaways.)
  3. Section the hair on the top of your head, from the corners of your forehead to the crown.
  4. Braid the section — preferably in a Dutch braid or fishtail braid style — and secure with a clear elastic band. Use a styling-concentrator nozzle set to medium speed and medium heat and blowout hair using a large round brush. (Atkin’s pro tip: Slightly pull up sections from braid to create an exaggerated mohawk appeal.)
  5. Spray the half-ponytail with a texturing hairspray and backcomb with a boar-bristle brush for added volume.
  6. Twist the ponytail into a topknot and secure with small bobby pins.
  7. Use a flatiron to add relaxed waves to the lower section of your hair, finishing with a spritz of texturizing hairspray.

Jen Atkin's go-to summer styles can be created using the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, as well as products from her line OUAI.

Q&A: Celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin reveals the three hair products everyone should be using

Jen Atkin can easily be labelled a celebrity hairstylist.

But while Atkin’s work with some of the biggest names in current pop culture (including the Kardashians, Chrissy Tiegen and the Hadids) would make one initially believe her clients are where the “celebrity” job title comes from, the glossy-haired stylist has become nearly as notable as her A-list customers.

“I’m always so surprised by that,” Atkin demurred when asked about her ever-growing legion of fans and followers (two million and counting on Instagram, alone).

Speaking to Canadian media during an event in Toronto with Dyson Supersonic, for which she is a spokesperson, Atkin dished on her go-to hairstyles, what’s the most under-utilized tool kit we all have in our homes, the three must-have products — and more.

Q. What’s your weekly hairstyle “calendar” like?

A. I usually start with wavy hair, and then day two, I use dry shampoo foam, which is awesome because it just kind of helps you get rid of excess dirt and oil without flattening your hair and making it look like it has too much product in it. I make it have a lot of volume. So, day two, I will go into straight hair. Day three, if I’ve had time to go to the gym, I will go with a sleek low bun. And, honestly, I usually go four days (without washing my hair) so, day four is usually my “Sade” look, Where I will put on red lipstick to try to keep the attention away from how dirty my hair is.

Q. Any tips to improve our at-home chances of nailing a hairstyle?

A. It really starts in the shower. If you have fine hair, you want to use a shampoo that’s volumizing, something that’s cleansing but making sure you don’t overload on conditioner. If you have really course or frizzy hair, our OUAI treatment mask is a game changer. It’s great because it gives you that soft, touchable, pretty hair. And then, the Dyson Supersonic really is amazing. Once you see it and use it, you really will never go back to your prehistoric hair dryer.

Q. What’s the one hairstyling tool or product we likely all have at home that we’re not taking advantage of?

A. A diffuser can be your best friend. It can help you skip other hot tools and it can give you that effortless wave in no time.

Q. Space is often an issue — especially when it comes to storage space in the bathroom. Any tips to pare down the product list in order to have just the essentials?

A. Get a bigger bathroom! (laughs). I think three products every woman needs are: a dry texturing spray, which is basically like if dry shampoo and hairspray had a baby. It’s something every girl wants to have fuller hair; dry shampoo foam is something that has been really, really exciting to launch; and lastly, it’s a wave spray because it makes your hair like cotton candy. It gives you that hair like when you come out of the ocean and your hair just dries like, really cool. It has a bit more fullness and a bit more memory.

Q. What’s one hairstyle that works for everyone?

A. I have never seen a girl that didn’t look great in a centre-part, low and sleek bun. And I think it’s easy for mostly everyone to do.

Q. How about for those who have a go-to style already. Any ideas to update an existing look? 

A. I have a hair accessories line with Chloe + Isabel, and we have really cute ponytail holders and bun cups. It’s a really fun way to dress it up and go from day to night.

The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer retails for $499 at select retailers and online at dysoncanada.ca. OUAI products are available at Sephora.

7 Summer Hair Tips From the Celebrity Stylist Behind Shay Mitchell’s Waves


Courtesy of Jerritt Clark/Getty Images/Laura Polko

Celebrity hairstylist Laura Polko is helping to set some of the hottest summer hair trends of the moment with clients like Gigi Hadid and Shay Mitchell. Her roster also includes stars like Lea Michele, and Chrissy Teigen—two stars that regularly inspire major hair envy. We caught up with the stylist to get her tips on summer hair care. Plus, she breaks down how to get the effortless waves she’s perfected for so many of her clients.

1. Use a deep conditioner on hair before heading to the beach or pool, if possible.

Polko suggests using a deep conditioner prior to jumping in the water to prep hair against some of the damaging effects of chlorine or sea salt. A thick conditioner coats the hair and seals the cuticle, making it harder for chemicals in the water to penetrate the shaft. It’s also helpful if you want to keep your blonde hair from going green. Also make sure to shampoo your hair ASAP after swimming.

2. Spritz on a dry shampoo to get “undone” beach waves.

Instead of using a hairspray or a salt spray to get the perfect beach waves, Polko explains that a flatiron and dry shampoo are all you need. Polko is a huge fan of Aussie’s 7n1 Dry Shampoo ($4, aussie.com) because it’s formulated with tapioca that helps to give hair more volume and hold.

For a Shay Mitchell-approved look, start by sectioning hair into two-three sections around the head, vertically. One section at a time, clamp hair in a flatiron at the roots and loosely wrap the hair around the iron while holding the ends. Slowly move the flatiron down towards the ends to achieve a soft bend in the hair. Make sure to curl hair away from the face. Once hair is all curled, shake hair out with hands. Finish with a few sprays of dry shampoo. For a twist, add a small braid on either side of the face and tie off with a clear elastic.

3. Want low-maintenance hair color? Ask for ombré or balayage.

Summer beauty is all about keeping things simple. Many of Polko’s clients opt for easy, low-maintanence hair color that they can let grow out while vacationing for months. Ombré lightens the hair from mid-shaft to ends, so the roots are always dark. Balayage is a special painting technique that also leaves a good portion of the roots dark. The placement of color looks like the sun could have lightened the hair naturally.

4. Purple shampoo can help prevent hair color from turning brassy.

Purple shampoos help balance color and neutralize any yellow or gold tones that may occur when lightening hair. This type of shampoo can also help blonde hues appear brighter over time.

5. A good shower filter can make all the difference for hair.

Many water sources are full of minerals and impurities that can wreak havoc on your hair. Washing hair in a shower with a filter can make a difference in the way your hair looks and feels overall, especially with color-treated hair. Try T3 Souce Showerhead ($130, t3micro.com).

6. Prepping hair before styling is one of the most important steps in keeping it healthy.

Polko recommends deep conditioning hair once a week to keep it moisturized and strong. And if you like to use hot tools, make sure to use a heat protectant to protect your natural texture from any damage.

7. And when the weather starts to cool down, switch up your hair products.

In some parts of the country, the weather remains constant (think Miami or San Diego), which means you don’t have to completely overhaul your hair routine throughout the year. But if you live in an area that has significant weather changes, Polko recommends alternating your shampoo and conditioner with the seasons. That means using moisture-rich products during winter months and lighter formulas in the summer.

New Delhi [India], July 21 (ANI-NewsVoir): Bollywood fans often follow fashion and styling trends as seen on celebrities be it on or off screen.

Karlie Kloss Platinum Blond Hair 2017


Kloss debuted her new hair color, courtesy of celebrity colorist Karla Welch, this weekend in Paris, where she made appearances at the Christian Dior Fall/Winter Haute Couture show and Vogue Foundation Dinner. Of course, it’s not the first time this year Kloss has experimented with the icy hue: She also tricked us into thinking she got a short platinum cut for the Meta Gala. But this time around, the model’s hair is much cooler in tone — and it’s the real deal.

Hair Updos 2017: Easy-To-Copy Red Carpet Styles


Updos can be the answer to all types of hair ‘mares. Whether you have grubby hair (and you want to snooze in the morning instead of get up and wash it), it’s raining, or if you just fancy an easy hairstyle change, a hair updo can be the perfect solution for work, parties or even just chilling out at home.

Whatever the occasion, let our pick of the best celebrity hair updos inspire you. From hairstyles for long hair to wedding hairsyles, we’ve found some of the very best updos out there.

Updos for short hair always seem like the most challenging; definitely more so than updos for shoulder length and medium hair, even though it’s only slightly longer. Diane Kruger and Jessica Alba have been proving that a bob hairstyle is anything but limiting when it comes to updos, sweeping and curling their hair back into a variety of cool red carpet styles.

For simple but effective updo ideas, take notes from Emma Watson, Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger, who have been giving us lessons in high-impact easy updos that don’t require much time or effort. There’s short hair updos too for all of you who have gone for the most talked about cut of the year: the lob.

Don’t worry if the idea of styling your own hair, let alone into a fancy updo, gets you in a flap. We’ve found styles that will work for you, even as a wedding hair updo, so you don’t need to find the time (or money) for a trip to the salon. Either get your practice in in front of the mirror or, if you prefer, take a picture to your stylist and let them recreate the look.

Though awards season is where we get the most celebrity updo inspiration, don’t feel like they need to be saved for smart occasions. Though timelessly glam styles, which Natalie Portman so often gets right, are best saved for parties, the more modern looks like high ponytails and messy buns are perfect for day-to-day wear.

Get new updo inspiration from our favourite celebrity looks…

Hair Guru Kim Vo Talks New Salon and Celebrity Clients


With a client list including Kate Hudson, Britney Spears and Goldie Hawn, Kim Vo knows the best way to blonde. The creative visionary opened his new touch-up and blow dry venue at the Montage Beverly Hills late last month. We caught up with Vo to chat summer hair tips and his dream celebrity client.

Kim-VO-hair-guru.jpg

Tell us about your new concept salon.
KIM VO: The new concept is all about turbo luxury. We offer blow drys and color in 10 minutes! This allows for a polished look all the time, but no appointments are necessary.

What makes this salon unique and different?
KV: We believe that a great blow dry isn’t enough. To be perfectly polished, you need the option of having your roots touched up. We give the option of a partial touch-up. Between auditions and blind first dates, never fear, we’ve got you covered!

Who designed the salon and what is the vibe you are going for?
KV: Nadia Elgrably for Nadia Designs Manhattan Beach, CA designed Vo Blow. This is our fourth salon together. We were going for “approachable luxury,” modern and clean with our favorite accent color, purple.

What makes LA so special to you?
KV: It’s the city I’ve lived in the longest, and we are located in the “Golden Triangle” where trends are made. The power of celebrities is apparent, but you don’t have to be a celebrity to feel gorgeous.

kim-vo-salon-hair-guru.jpg

What is one tip for the perfect summer hair in LA?
KV: Through the evolution of ombre comes baby lights and it mimics where the sun would naturally lighten your hair. The sun would naturally kiss the crown and around the face. With this technique, you will always have a seamless highlight look from roots to ends. Before getting bored of your hair and putting it in a ponytail, come try Vo Blow and choose one of our six signature styles to show off your personality.

What is one mistake you see women making with their hair in 2017?
KV: I see them not taking care of it at home as much as they should. Once you leave the salon, it really does take homework and buying the right products to keep your hair in good condition.

What is one trend you love for hair in 2017?
KV: I love that celebrities are going bolder with their blondes—from blonde to platinum. I also love when they dare to chop it all off.

Who is one celebrity you would love to work with that you haven’t yet?
KV: Cara Delevingne.

90s hair accessories trends making a comeback


Some 90s beauty trends can stay in the past (skinny eyebrows, we’re talking to you), but the latest to rear its head is wholly covetable.

For a lesson in making hair accessories wearable off the catwalk, look to Alexa Chung, who modelled this jewel-encrusted barrette spelling out the word ‘Girls’ at London Fashion Week. So 90s yet so 2017.

Another twist on the Clueless-era hair accessory comes from Bella Hadid, who herself has launched a fashion collection for LA label Chrome Hearts which is dedicated to the 90s. Hadid’s white straight pin barrettes in her chocolate brown hair make maximum impact with minimal effort.

Meanwhile, Chrissy Teigen is the poster girl for the pearl hair accessories trend. The handiwork of Hollywood hairstylist Jen Atkin, Teigen’s topknot reinvents pearl hairpins for spring/summer 17.

Moving into the 2000s bohemia era, Mary-Kate Olsen wore an antique looking chain with charms in her hair to this year’s Met Gala. We approve.

Now there’s no excuse to revert to a flower crown for festival season.

Celebrity Hairstylist Hair Trends Summer 2017 Textured Hair


If you’re headed to Cabo with Gabrielle Union’s hairstylist, trust that he’ll pack all the essentials to keep your hair red-carpet-ready. In fact, toting around heavy kits—those dryers aren’t light!—and hopping transatlantic flights is part of the job description for Larry Sims, the celebrity hairstylist who will appear on Bravo’s new show, Invite Only Cabo. It’s also what caused Larry need to need a vacation in the first place!  

Larry’s in love with his craft, but it’s not always easy. “The long hours are taxing on your body,” the former backup dancer shared with The Lookbook. After dancing, the multi-talented stylist started his career as an assistant for Ken Paves—who tends to Jessica Simpson’s flaxen tresses—and has gained a steady stream of celeb followers since starting with a bang—or, a bob. “[Victoria Beckham] needed someone and Ken wasn’t available, so he sent me,” Larry recalls. “I was able to work with her to give her the bob, and the rest was history.”

Indeed, Larry hasn’t stopped snipping A-list locks since.” When I’m on set with Gabrielle [Union] for Being Mary Jane, we shoot 16-hour days,” the stylist reveals of his current day-to-day sitch. “There have been several times with Gabrielle, Mary J. Blige, and Lupita Nyong’o, where I’ve flown from Los Angeles on a red-eye to New York, then come right back to LA that evening.”

What makes Larry so in-demand? He names his modern aesthetic and razor cuts as the kryptonite that keeps clients coming back. Jut ask Kerry Washington—”she’s one of the girls that rocks my razor cuts the most,” Larry shares. 

For summer 2017, Larry names textured hair and shorter cuts as major trends. “Women aren’t afraid to give themselves a big chop,” he said. “I’m also not seeing a lot of polished, finished hair. I think hair that has been slept in for two to three days has always been the best, and I’m seeing a lot of braids, whimsical textures, and people going off the beaten path in terms of what traditionally works with hair and style. It’s refreshing!” Catch the premiere of Invite Only Cabo on Sunday, May 14 at 9/8 c. And rest assured: there will be plenty of refreshing hairstyle inspiration.
