siennamiller2.jpg Frederic Fekkai’s resident hair guru, Adir Abergel, gave Sienna Miller a very glamorous, old-Hollywood look a la Veronica Lake for her appearance at the Los Angeles premiere of G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra. while the look was a throw-back, it still had softness and movement.

To get the look:


Adir started by creating a very strong side part. He then applied Fekkai Zero-Humidity Frizz Control ($23, from the roots to ends. Next, he applied Fekkai Coiff Bouffant ($23, only at the roots to add a little body. Using a round brush, he dried her hair, creating the perfect texture.



Once the hair was completely dry, Adir took a 1 1/4” curling iron (We recommend Hot Tools Professional Ceramic Marcel Curling Iron, $39.95, and curled her hair, and then pinned it in place. He did not curl the hair at the root, because he wanted the top of the hair to stay smooth and give the rest of the hair body.



After curling, he then let the hair cool down for 10 min and took out the pins. He brushed out the curls with the Classic Brush ($95, for the perfect smoothness, softness, and bounce.

To finish this look he applied Fekkai Nonchalant Cream ($23, to top of her head, to smooth away all those tiny flyways, and added a little bit of Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($23, to lock in the style.

Full-volume looks are always great when it comes to making a statement. Celebs like Beyonce* and Kate Becksale* love to rock the “bump” style for everything from red carpet events to everyday outings. With this pumped-up style comes a tough reality that can damage hair: teasing.


Divado hair accessories are an alternative way to give your hair the lift for creating the look you want without the putting your hair through any added stress.




Available in two styles, the Bridgette and the Audrey, Divado stays in place until you take it out and compfortable to wear. We find this item to be a bit funny looking, and were skeptical at first, but the results speak for themselves. We can create styles like our favorite celebs and know our tresses will love this better than being teased. from $25,

The last time we heard anyone say they didn’t want shiny hair was…never. Shiny hair equals healthy hair, it makes us look better, thus we feel better. Unfortunately, with everyday stress, poor eating habits, illness, heat styling and hair coloring, lack-luster tresses can be the result. We have tested many shine-enhancing products and put together a list of our favorites. Get ready to get your shine on…




Citre Shine Shine Miracle Highly Laminating Shampoo

For hair that looks shiny and glossy, start in the shower. this shampoo contains citrus extracts, essential vitamins and minerals to instill a healthy looking shine without stripping away the essential oils from your hair. We love the fresh lemon scent that is more fresh squeezed lemons and less Pine-Sol. $3.99,


Frederic Fekkai Glossing Conditioner

Our staple for adding luster and shine is one of Fekkai’s best-selling products. We love the light consistency that still manages to give even the thirstiest hair the drink it so desires. From $23,





Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Shine Glossing Spray

For Shine that resists frizz, we reach for this. Fruit micro-waxes seal in shine without feeling greasy or leaving hair feeling weighed down. No wonder it’s a favorite of celeb stylist David Evangelista, who mists this on his clients’ hair before they head out the door. $4.29,

Curls deserve to get their shine on, too. Ouidad is devoted to creating products for curly hair to best enhance natural shape and texture. For styling, this serum coats hair to add a hint of shimmer (don’t worry, it washes out easily) that reflects light, adding radiance to curls, controls frizz and keeps flyaways at bay. For straight styles, use as a last step to give tresses a gorgeous sheen. $20,




Kiehl’s Climate-Proof Shine-Enhancing Non-Aerosol Spray

Whether we choose to use this product during the styling, or simply spray it on as a finishing touch, this strong-yet flexible-hold formula helps keep our hair where we put it regardless of climate or weather conditions. Natural conditioning extracts derived from Sesame seeds and Soy beans give this formula moisturizing benefits while Sunflower seeds enhance shine. For all hair types. from $7,



ojon-shine-kit.jpgOjon Shine and Protect Hair Ritual Kit

Color-treated hair can look great when it’s first done, but begin to look dull and lifeless after a few weeks. That isn’t acceptable in our book. Thankfully, we found this kit to keep our color-treated hair looking healthy and vibrant. By nourishing it with a blend of natural, plant-based active ingredients, including wildcrafted Ojon oil, and protecting it with a natural UV-inhibiting antioxidant complex, we find that even weeks after having our hair processed, we still look like we just stepped out of the salon. $50,

vanessa hudgens.jpgWhen it comes to summer hairstyles, effortless-looking styles are always the goal. Vanessa Hudgens’ hair at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards was a great example of an I-didn’t-try-too-hard style that works for all summer occasions. With tousled waves and smooth, side swept bangs, a style like this can be yours with a little help from the right tools and products.

Shampoo and condition hair with a smoothing formula. Try Peter Lamas Avocado Olive Ultra-Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner ($17.99 each, for a sleek, no-frizz look.

Spray damp hair at the roots with a volumizing mist to add body and shine (do this while your head is flipped over for added volume). Try Peter Lamas Chinese Herbs Revitalizing Nutrient Mist ($20, If your hair is naturally curly, apply a straightening balm throughout the hair.

Blowdry your hair, using a round brush, concentrating mostly on the roots— you want them to be smooth, but with volume. It’s ok if the lower half stays damp, unless your hair is curly, then you will need to blow it out straight.

smooth n shine mousse.jpgOn damp hair, apply mousse to hair while tousling with hands. Try Smooth ‘N Shine Curling Mousse, $2.99, Let hair air dry or blowdry on a low setting with a diffuser. Using a large barrel curling iron, wrap various strands around the barrel for more defined waves.

If your hair is curly, after blowing out your hair, take your hair in sections, starting from the bottom first, wrapping, not clamping, the hair in 1 to 2 inch sections around a 2” curling iron. This will create a loose curl. Alternate the direction you wrap your hair to avoid a “too perfect” look.

Once finished, use fingers to loosen and tousle your hair. Spray with a shine enhancing product, then a finishing spray with hold. We like Herbal Essences new Tousle Me Softly Hairspray ($2.99, drugstores) because it offers the perfect, flexible hold.

tresemme 24 hour body foaming mousse.jpg



Hair that is full of volume is on every woman’s beauty wish list these days (think more Victoria’s Secret model, less 80s ‘Dynasty’ character). Tresemme 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse will make it easier to achieve the full body you crave thanks to its Volume Control Complex. This formula builds body, leaving hair looking soft and feeling light. Applied to damp hair, it works with heat styling tools to maintain optimal body and bounce. $4.99,
