Gisele Bündchen looked radiant at the Met Gala in New York City this week. But glancing away from her the industrial metal adornments and her daring hemline for a moment, Gisele’s hair looked radiant. And she had John Frieda International Creative Consultant, Harry Josh, to thank for that. Thanks to Harry Josh and the folks at John Frieda, we have a run down of just how to copy this va-va-va-voluminous look.

Step 1 - Prep: To prep hair, Harry applied John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($5.99) to add texture. He then blowdried hair with his fingers to dry hair, but ensure it had a messy feel.
Step 2 - Style: Next, Harry applied a 1 ½ inch curling iron to small sections, then brushed through the curls to loosen them into relaxed waves.
Step 3 - Perfect: To finish the look, Harry gave Gisele a severe side part, then spritzed John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray ($5.99) to hold the sexy, undone style.

StyleBakeryTeen posted an eye-opening article today about the safety of sunscreen. We all know how essential it is to wear SPF every day — even when it’s cloudy, even in the winter. But did you know that there are some commonly used ingredients in your sunscreen that can actually cause skin cancer? Find out four things you need to know when shopping for sun care.

For someone who declared that “the Met Ball is the most terrifying red carpet in existence,” model and actress Brooklyn Decker sure seems to hide her nerves well.  While she looked great from the neck down, wearing a beaded Peter Pilotto dress to the PUNK: Chaos to Couture themed Met Gala, what she had going on above the neck particularly caught our attention. The deep side part in her hair stayed glam with waves cascading down one side while still managing to keep true to the evening’s punk theme with studded hair pins holding the hair in place and also showing off her ear cuffs. 

In her Met Gala Diary for ABC’s News’ blog, Brooklyn Decker shared that she and hairstylist Patrick Melville discussed the hair together and came up with the “pretty side part with a punk twist”. Patrick Melville, an Aveeno celebrity hairstylist with over 20 years of industry experience, has a way of putting together gorgeous red carpet looks that can actually be replicated at home. He shared the steps he took to create the look for us to try a little punk couture hair of your own. 

  • Blow dry hair straight
  • Use large barrel curling iron to create texture; for hair closer to the face, curl towards the face
  • Once hair is curled, spray hair with a Dry Shampoo like the Aveeno Pure Renewal Dry Shampoo to break apart the curls and amp up the texture
  • Part hair towards the left side of the head and wrap the hair from the left side of your face across your scalp towards the right
  • With bobby pins of your choice (in Brooklyn’s case we used these really cool studded pins), fasten hair creating this asymmetrical look

The eyebrows are often the most neglected facial feature on a woman (and a man — but that’s a whole ‘nother post for a whole ‘nother blog). I learned several years back how critical a role a good eyebrow pencil should have in your beauty routine and to this day I almost never leave home without a swipe of Laura Mercier’s Eyebrow Pencil. But when I’m looking to take my look to the next level I turn to Benefit High Brow. This thick oyster-pink pencil is meant to be swept right under the eyebrow line then blended gently into skin. The luminous color adds life to your brows and even seems to add a little lift to the arches, too. 

You can buy Benefit High Brow for $20 at sephora.com.

With the Met Gala’s Punk: Chaos to Couture theme this year, beauty products that pull in that rock star element have been catching my eye. There is something about the cool, “I’m not trying too hard, but actually yes this look took hours to create” element of rocker chic beauty that draws me in. Bringing the chance to channel your inner punk to the masses, Theo Kogan is a rocker, model, makeup artist, mom and the founder of cosmetics brand Armour Beauty. As a singer for bands, Theo wanted to create a lip gloss that would stay on during her performances. What she created is an intensely moisturizing, highly pigmented gloss that is as nourishing for the lips as it is fashion-forward rocker chic. 

At first swipe, Armour Beauty’s lip gloss goes on smooth, produces bright color, and stays on much longer than your average gloss. The line of 20 glosses are named after songs, bands, and pop icons. The glosses come in two different collections: shimmer and opaque. Armour Beauty glosses range from on trend colors like Barracuda, a classic blue-red, to punk rock Femme Fatale, an opaque black gloss. 

Not only do the glosses come packed with natural ingredients like avocado, mango, olive and shea butters, grape seed oil, and Vitamin E, they are also paraben- and cruelty-free. Finally a lip gloss that rocks as much as you do.
