After overdosing on Pantene Pro-V as a teenager, most of my adult life has been spent searching for a shampoo and conditioner that would give me the bouncy waves and voluminous lift that my hair always seemed to lack. Fairy tales of shampoo changing the structure of my hair have faded but my search for great hair products has not. When I was recently reintroduced to Pantene, I was surprised to find that my old stand-by was chicer, more adult-looking and included an Expert Collection. With sleek black packaging and the promise of repairing damage through replacing the keratin that damaged hair is often lacking, I decided to give Pantene’s Expert Collection Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner a chance. 

According to Pantene scientists, our hair is made up of up to 80% of the protein keratin. The Pantene Advanced Keratin Repair line helps replace the keratin that is lost due to brushing hair, coloring, and using heat style products. What does all of that translate to in reality? My hair was smooth, but not weighed down. With the help of a wide barrel curling iron I was able to achieve those bouncy waves I’ve been dreaming about. For $8.99 for the shampoo or conditioner and a Pantene Smart Beauty Satisfaction Guarantee the Pantene Advanced Keratin Repair, there’s really no excuse for not trying the grown-up version of Pantene’s Expert Collection. 
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.
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
