Celebrity editorial stylist Mark Townsend created a full, voluminous, summery hair look for Lea Michele. “Lea wanted to look modern and sexy and this bold style, with lots of volume and texture, was perfect for the Teen Choice Awards,” said Townsend.

Here’s how to get Lea Michele’s look:

· Shampoo and condition with Dove Damage Therapy Volume Boost Shampoo and Conditioner the night before to leave hair looking healthy and full of body

·  Distribute Dove Body & Lift Volumizing Mousse throughout and blow dry hair with round brush to add lift

· Divide hair into 5 sections: 1 top, 2 sides, 2 back

· Apply Dove Heat Defense Therapy Mist to individual sections immediately before applying curling iron to protect hair against heat styling damage

· Starting with the back section, use a double barrel curling iron on 3 inch sections of hair, letting the curled pieces fall and hair cool without pinning

· Continue to curl the entire head using the double barreled iron to create figure-eight style waves

·  Warm a pea-sized amount of Dove Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream between the palms of hands.  Rake fingers through hair to distribute product evenly for shiny, beachy texture.

·  Flip head upside down to slightly loosen up the look and spray Dove Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray with Natural Movement throughout.

Last Fall, Chanel teased fashionistas and lacquer junkies with peaks at its new shade: Particuliere. It caused frenzies, really, it did. The dove, taupey gray nail trend sailed into spring effortlessly shortly after. Now, as the trend continues into fall 2010, it has evolved into a cooler, heather gray.

Starlets such as Lauren Conrad (above), Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Szohr and Sienna Miller have been sporting the cement and smoke hues as of late. This neutral may not sound uber exciting at first mention, but trust us, it’s the perfect complement to all the whites and brights you’ll be squeezing out of your summer wardrobe in the next few weeks, as well as the richer, darker shades that perpetuate fall fashions. 

Look for steely shades (we love any with slight purple undertones), that are glossy. Or pair this trend with the metallic trend to get the best of both worlds.

sampar good weelned 1.jpgSpecially developed for travel, Sampar’s Bon Weekend Kit contains all five of the essential products in Sampar’s luxe skincare line, allowing you to continue with your Sampar routine while away from home. Easily slipped into an overnight bag or purse, the kit contains:

2 bottles of Velvet Cleansing Milk - a hydrating, soft cleanser with lime blossom and rosewater.

Equalizing Foam Peel - essential oils and AHAs to remove dead skin cells.

Ultra Hydrating Fluid- hydrating moisturizer.

Nocturnal Lifting Mask - this one is tricky. This “mask” is actually an overnight moisturizer that firms, reduces lines and plumps with” 95 % active ingredients”. Rinse off in the AM.

All of the products pack a major punch in the way of beautiful skin, but our favorites were the Equalizing Foam and the Nocturnal Mask. Baby soft skin, no joke. Our skin has never looked brighter or more smooth. It’s like a facial in a little kit!

The set is perfect for on the go, and the products smell divine. The rose scent of the hydrating moisturizer may be addicting. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Paulas-Choice-SPF_thumbnails.jpgSummer may be quickly winding down, but that doesn’t mean you need to put away your sunscreen along with your bikinis and flip flops. Relatively new to the beauty scene, the Ultra-light Weightless Finish SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray by Paula’s Choice is definitely a must-have product to keep in the front row of your beauty drawer year-round. Just as the name suggests, it’s super light, and not the least bit heavy. We loved how easy the clear liquid spritzed on, though we did have to rub it in a little to evenly distribute the sunscreen. Though it left our hands a little greasy from the application initially, it was absorbed almost instantaneously, and didn’t leave behind any residue, film, oil, or any other sign that makes most of us dread our daily SPF application. 

The product details mention it’s suitable for face and body, though we only tried it on our limbs, chest and neck. However, with how quickly the spray is absorbed, and the lack of any greasy residue on our arms, we could see it working for the face. It’s 100% fragrance-free and has no dyes or colorings, so it’s perfect for the most sensitive of skin types (like ours.) The SPF 30 is dermatologist recommended for daily use, and should be applied every few hours (especially after excessive perspiration) for optimum protection. Thankfully, the bottle is slim and can be easily carried around in your daily satchel or tote for multiple applications. If you are anything like us, Paula’s Choice Weightless spray will immediately become your go-to, can’t-live-without sunscreen, so stock up!


The Teen Choice Awards are always fun for celebs; being the teen sister of those big awards shows, they’re way more relaxed and stars are free to be a bit more playful with their looks. A funky pony or bright blue lip go a long way here,  much to the delight of many fashion trendsetters watching along.

Tonight was no exception. Some of young Hollywood’s finest were out in full force, and here are some of our favorite looks:

ashleygreen.jpgAshley Greene kept it fresh with natural eyes, full lashes, and rosy cheeks and lips. Her loose waves complimented the natural look.

katarina.jpgKatarina Graham took a chance with bold pink lips and jewels accenting her eyes. She accented her fun, funky look with an edgy side swept hair style.

kristenbell.jpgEverybody’s favorite Cali-girl Kristen Bell kept it fresh faced and low key, down to her windblown ponytail. She added a hint of glam with a subtle cat eye and loads of gorgeous lashes.

 Lucy Hale is a natural beauty, and played that up with gorgeous waves, tawny skin, and rosy cheeks, offset by heavily lined eyes.

selenagomez.jpgSelena Gomez tried an edgier, grown-up look than we’re used to, and it totally worked! We love her errant curls and smoky shadow.
