gabrielle-union.jpgGabrielle Union’s full, glossy hairstyle is easy to acheive and, to the excitement of our wallets, also affordable— thanks to products by Tresemme. We always find it so refreshing knowing that our favorite stars use the same products we ourselves love.

We got the scoop from Tresemme stylist Tyler Laswell on how he created this full-bodied look for the star:

To begin, prep hair with TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray ($4.75, drugstore.com) all over.

 

 

 

Next, separate hair into four sections; sides, back of head and top of head. Then, wrap 1” sections around a curling iron, holding the ends. Alternate between a 1” curling iron and a 1 1/2” iron. This adds more demention and volume to the hair.

Once entire head curled, use a blow dryer and just your fingertips to stretch and soften the curls into waves. Finish the look with one of our favorite glossing products, TRESemmé No-Frizz Shine Spray ($4.75, drugstore.com) to create a natural sheen.

As beauty-loving women, we like to have our tips and toes polished. We love experimenting with the latest color trends as well as sticking to the classics. But as busy women, we don’t always have the time to sit and wait for our nails to dry. Thankfully, Sally Hansen created a great solution that we love: Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color.  Available in 24 colors, it says it dries in 60 seconds. We, however find that after a little less than 2 minutes it’s completely the-polish-isn’t-going-anywhere dry. Once it is, we enjoy a lasting, good-looking finish that is strong and wears 3-5 days without chipping. Available in 24 shades. $4.99, cvs.com

We’ve all been there: home with a new drugstore foundation, and it isn’t looking on the skin the way it appears in the bottle. Thankfully, Revlon created Custom Creations, an amazing medium-coverage foundation that can be layered for a full coverage effect. The best part about it (in addtion to the SPF 15) is that it comes with two shades, so you’ll always get your perfect tone, no matter the time of year. Comes in six color combinations. $13.99, drugstore.com

Keeping your youthful glow is easy thanks to CoverGirl’s new Simply Ageles Sculpting Blush. This soft, creamy formula contains Olay Regenerist Serum to help give skin a boost of anti-aging benefits (it’s clinically proven to provide significant improvement in just 4 weeks), and because it’s a cream, it looks more natural on the skin. Use it to give yourself the perfect, blushing glow. $10.99, covergirl.com

Bio-Oil

Bio_oil_s.jpgBio-Oil has quite a cult following, and it should come as no surprise— it works in so many ways for so many people. For some, it’s the product to turn to for soothing skin that has been burned by the sun, or the must-have for smoothing away stretch marks. For others, it is a moisturizing night serum for the face or a “drink” for their parched hair. In addition to those many uses, we recommend using it to give your legs a silky sheen for a night out— in your favorite dress, of course— or try adding a few drops to your bath for a relaxing, at-home treat. from $11.99, drugstore.com
