IDINA MENZEL (wearing Angel Sanchez) helped kick off Super Bowl 49 by showcasing her famous vocals while performing the national anthem in front of thousands in the stadium stands of Phoenix, Arizona--and the millions who watched from at home. With so many eyes literally on her, Idina wanted to look her very best--so naturally, she called in her go-to mane man, Celebrity Hairstylist TED GIBSON. Ted gave us an inside look on what it was like to get Idina ready for such a major night in both sports and her career, "I am so honored to have been able to be a part of this incredible moment in her life. The look I created for is her favorite and is classic Idina – 'the gibson girl wave'!" STEP #1: "I started off with freshly shampooed and conditioned hair. Idina’s look is all about effortless texture – to help achieve this I applied 3 different products to her hair before blow drying. At the root I used Kerastase Résistance Mousse Volumifique for volume, on the mid shaft and ends I applied Kerastase's Résistance Spray Volumifique, then on top of that I used Kerastase's Densimorphose Thickening Treatment Mousse.

Get The Look: Jessica Chastain Interlocking Braid – Critics’ Choice Movie Awards 2015

JESSICA CHASTAIN rocked the blue carpet when she arrived for the 2015 Critics' Choice Movie Awards, but it wasn't the heavily-embellished Antonio Berardi cutout gown the "A Most Violent Year" was wearing that stole the show--it was her ultra-cool interlocking braided hairstyle! Celebrity Hairstylist RENATO CAMPORA worked with Jessica to achieve a cool 'do unlike what you typically see from a Hollywood star; it was refreshing, fun, and definitely a look that stood out amongst the many noggins sporting those classic sculpted waves. THE INSPIRATION: "The inspiration for Jessica's hair at the Critics' Choice Awards came from the beautiful dress. Once I saw the high neckline, I knew we wanted to show that off. Working with the silhouette, I decided to pull the hair off of the face and create a beautiful loose braid in the back. The result was a modern shape that really complemented the whole look," he explained.

She wore a stunning Balenciaga black and white dress, and the strong sultry eyes added to the bold look," he explained. THE SKIN & CHEEKS: "I prepped her skin with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, then I applied NARS Radiant Cream Foundation in Vallauris with a damp Beauty Blender. I framed her face with a bronzy tan cream from NARS Matte Multiple called Vientiane, dabbing it on the temples, under the cheekbones, and along the jaw line. I filled in her brows with Cle de Peau Brow Powder just to add some definition."

Product Review

When you think of a holiday nail lacquer collection you probably visualize red, green, silver, gold and white, and all the ways you can turn that into glitter, metallics, and shimmers. Now, I'm the first gal to get excited over that color palette but Deborah Lippmann has, as they say, 'been there, done that' ...and that's why I'm super excited that she let her imagination run wild with her not-so-traditionally-festive new Holiday/Winter 2014 Fantastical Collection. The exotic line features a whimsical array of colors in vibrant lime green, shimmering burnt orange, electric pink, celestial blue, a moon-changing teal, and a sparkling black to take you on a magical ride. I was practically vibrating with excitement when I saw a preview of these colors so, needless to say, I was thrilled to be able to test run a few shades that I'm about to share with you. So.... let's get to it!

Review: OPI x Gwen Stefani Holiday 2014 Collection – Cremes & Shimmers

Product Review

After completely falling in love with the collaboration between OPI and Gwen Stefani earlier this year, I was beyond excited to know that the team had a holiday collection in the works. It's no secret that anything Gwen touches turns to fabulous, so imagine the stylish possibilities when her touch is complete with an OPI lacquered manicure. "During the holiday season, women adopt a more glamorous beauty look," explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador. With the launch of the bold and luxurious collection comes 18 limited edition nail lacquers inspired the edgy-yet-sophisticated style of the No Doubt singer/songwriter, L.A.M.B. designer and "The Voice" coach. Amongst the line you'll find a wide assortments of rich jewel-tone cremes and shimmers as well as glittery confections and chrome accents that were offered in cute holiday trio packs (which I separated into different posts highlight, check out the Unfrost My Heart Trio: Review and the Rollin' In Cashmere Trio: Review). At first glance, despite the hearts I had in my eyes, I didn't fail to notice that there was only one green in the collection and zero blue. I was a bit torn on how I felt about that, but it didn't diminish my excitement to test out of the collection, which I was able to do when OPI sent the shades my way. I hope you enjoy my review.
