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, 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, to create a natural sheen.

At the Keep a Child Alive Blackball Gala, many of Hollywood’s humanitarians turned out to show their support. Elegance was an obvious theme, and Paula Patton’s own elegant look really caught our attention.

Ursula Stephen, Celebrity Stylist for Motions hair products, created Paula’s gorgeous pompadour-esque hairstyle, proving once again that red-carpet looks never have to break the bank. Here’s the inside scoop on how this show-stopping style was created:



Ursula applied a Motions Light Styling Foam ($5.99, all over Paula’s hair, then blew it dry in an upward direction for volume.

Using a 1 1/4” curling iron, waves were created throughout her hair.

With a fine-toothed comb, emphasizing on the crown, Ursula teased the hair.

The look was finished with Motions Light Hold Working Spritz ($4.99,

Mila_Kunis2.jpgGorgeous high-end dress were all over the red carpet at this year’s Primetime Emmys. When mixed with affordable hairstyles, it’s a match made in style heaven. TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist, Mara Rozsak, did this when she created a look for actress Mila Kunis that was so affordable, we couldn’t keep the details to ourselves. These are her stylist secrets on how she created the the sexy, budget-friendly look.


Apply TRESemmé Anti-Frizz Secret Smoothing Crème ($4.75, to damp hair, part to one side, and blow dry with a medium-sized round brush (try Sephora Brand Medium Round Boar Brush, $16,


hot-tools-curling-iron-1-5.jpgCurl hair with a 1 1/4 inch barrel curling iron (We recommend this one by Hot Tools, $29.99, and spray entire head with TRESemmé Frizz Shield hairspray .


Pull hair into a low ponytail, and tie with an elastic leaving a small section of hair out on one side to frame the face.

Wrap a tiny section of hair around the elastic to hide the tie. Brush out curls with fingers and gently back comb for a messier texture.





Spray all over with TRESemmé TRES Two Hair Spray ($4.75, to keep the look in place all night.

ashley_greene.jpgAshley Greene worked the red carpet as the fashion correspondent for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. We think she did a great job, but of course we had to get the scoop on her glamorous hairstyle. Styled by Pantene Celebrity Stylist, Danilo, Ashley’s long, wavy locks offered a retro feel with contemporary glamour.

Here’s how you can recreate the look:


1. Starting on wet hair, Danilo sprayed the Pantene Pro-V Root Lifter Gel ($4.99, on her crown to prime her hair for a voluminous shape on top.

We also recommend Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray ($18, and Suave Professionals Volumizing Root Lifter Spray Gel ($2.99,




2. Since Ashley was stationed outside on the red carpet, Danilo combed through Pantene Pro-V Restoratives Frizz Control Ultra Smoothing Balm ($5.17, from the mid-shaft of her hair to the ends to keep it looking sleek and frizz-free despite the humidity.

Other frizz-controlling balms to try: PHYTO ‘Phytodéfrisant’ Botanical Hair Relaxing Balm ($26, and Carol’s Daughter Hair Balm ($12,

3. After applying the balm, Danilo blow-dried her hair straight.

4. Danilo then pulled the top half of her hair back, using his classic French Lacing technique to give her healthy volume on top while leaving a dramatic side part for contrast.

5. He then used a large iron to create her loose flowing curls underneath, combing when necessary.

6. To hold the look in place, Danilo sprayed her hair with the Pantene Pro-V Texture Hairspray ($4.49, for movable texture while she worked the carpet.
