Celebrity editorial stylist Mark Townsend created a modern and fresh hair look for Lea Michele. “Lea wanted her hair to look touchable and super modern, and full hair with lots of volume and a bit of roughness was perfect against her flawless gown,” said Townsend.

· Start with clean hair.  Michele used Dove Daily Treatment Conditioner to give softness and smoothness in the time it takes to use a conditioner.

· “The end-of-Summer timing of the Emmys is a perfect opportunity to play with color. Lea is still shooting episodes of Glee and we couldn’t do anything permanent, so I added in a few custom pieces of hair to add dimension and giver her removable highlights for the evening.” The result was a golden/coppery effect throughout the ends of Michele’s hair.

· Use Dove Body & Lift Volumizing Mousse throughout damp hair and blow dry with a round brush to add lift.

·Spray 3 inch sections of hair with Dove Heat Defense Therapy Mist to protect hair against heat styling damage before using an iron.

· Next, use a 2 inch curling iron to give a subtle bend or ‘S’ curl, rather than a perfect curl. Curl from the ends all the way up, and set each section with a barrel clip for 5 to 7 minutes or until cool.

·  Scrunch hair with Dove Daily Moisture Therapy Replenishing Mist to add moisture, and blow dry briefly without a diffuser to look a bit undone.

· Warm a pea-sized amount of Dove Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream between the palms of hands. Rake fingers through hair to distribute product evenly for shiny, modern texture.

· Tease hair at the crown for extra volume and lift.

·  To finish, spray Dove Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray with Natural Movement liberally on a small, natural bristle eyebrow brush and run through bangs to hold a middle part. The parted bangs gave a modern update to the 60’s vibe of Michelle’s hair.



For Mad Men’s January Jones, Townsend created an edgy, fashion-forward look. “A textured, asymmetrical bob was the perfect way to incorporate January’s love of editorial fashion and runway style into a feminine, yet tough look,” said Townsend.

· The night before, use Dove Intensive Repair Damage Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner to strengthen hair and prevent damage.

· “Second day texture was key to achieve this runway-meets-Hollywood look, so I pre-styled her hair the night before.” Distribute Dove Curl & Sculpt Defining Mousse throughout and blow dry hair with round brush to add lift

· Set top sections of hair with large, 3 inch Velcro rollers for 15-20 minutes. While rollers set, add extensions in the front only to make hair longer in the front and shorter in the back.

· Spritz throughout with Dove Heat Defense Therapy Mist to protect against styling damage.

· Wrap 1 ½ to 2 inch sections of hair around a 1 inch curling iron to create a big, loose wave instead of a tight curl.

· The next day, reapply mousse to add lift to hair, and blow dry gently with a round brush to freshen up ends but not set perfectly.

· Rake a small amount of Dove Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream through hair to add smoothness.

· Finish the look by spraying Dove Flexible Hold Hairspray with Natural Movement to set the style but still allow movement.
How to get the look:

1.  Shampoo/Condition hair, towel blot to remove excess water.

2.  Apply desired straightening balm, styling products and/or heat protectant.

3. Create an off-center part using a long tail comb.  If you prefer a more natural look, pull hair back away from face in lieu of a part.

4. Use a natural bristle brush round or flat brush and dry hair until 100% dry.  Use brush to create in volume in the crown and the sides if desired. If you prefer to wear the side ponytail straight, use a paddle brush to straighten tresses as you dry.

5.  Using a brush or fingers, pull the side and crown hair back towards the nape of the neck.  Smooth ponytail and then position the base so that it rests just slightly behind one ear.

6. Spritz the entire head lightly with a setting or styling spray.
Yes, even celebs get breakouts, but you don’t always need a star salary to get rid of them. Some of our favorite star beauties forego expensive spas and treatments in favor of at-home treatments in order to keep  their skin red carpet ready.

celebacne.JPGMegan Fox swears by Bliss ‘Pore’-fector Gadget Kit ($185), an innovative complexion-improving set featuring a high-tech, dual-action skincare tool and advanced pore-clearing formulas. The tool generates sonic vibrations, which work with Bliss Daily Detoxifying Facial Toner to create micro-jets (fine, steady streams of moisture) that extract impurities and deeply clean clogged skin. The sonic waves help to loosen up debris, creating a cleaner, smoother, more receptive surface, setting the stage for revitalizing antioxidants, hydrators, and the rest of your skincare regime to work effectively. So that’s why Megan always looks flawless!

Charlize Theron reaches for Ole Henriksen Micro/Mini Peel System ($95), a three-step kit containing all you need to exfoliate, refine, peel, and renew your skin in minutes. Almond Polish emulates the benefits of a microdermabrasion, refining skin to smooth perfection. next, a Lemon peel emulates the benefits of an acid peel; lactic and glycolic acid combined with orange and lemon extracts plus aspartic acid go to work peeling and renewing skin. Lastly, a chamomile formula comforts skin after the more active treatment steps. Convenient, effective, and luxurious… no wonder Charlize loves it!

Miley Cyrus is a fan of Kinerase Clear Skin Blemish Dissolver ($39). A blend of proven blemish-fighting ingredients targets imperfections and works quickly and gently to reduce the buildup and blockage that can cause skin problems. The convenient stick with a roller-ball applicator offers precise spot application that helps reduce the appearance of blemishes and other breakout-related skin imperfections, even on the go. Perfect for a jet-setter like Miley!
christina-ricci-02-300x400.jpgOn Wednesday, Christina Ricci debuted a new, softer style at a Blackberry Torch launch party. Ricci, who famously played Wednesday Adams in the big screen adaptation of The Adams Family, is best known for wearing a severe, dark style similar to her movie character… but is certainly no stranger to experimentation; the actress has dabbled in hues from buttery blonde to cherry red in the past.

Her new style, a gorgeous caramel auburn with varying levels of tonality, sets off her golden skin and makes her eyes pop. The actress also chopped off much of her length, taking her chest length hair up to the nape of her neck.

Definitely an upgrade in our book, although Ricci could probably pull off anything.

What do you think of Christina’s new look?

Celebrity editorial stylist Mark Townsend created a full, voluminous, summery hair look for Lea Michele. “Lea wanted to look modern and sexy and this bold style, with lots of volume and texture, was perfect for the Teen Choice Awards,” said Townsend.

Here’s how to get Lea Michele’s look:

· Shampoo and condition with Dove Damage Therapy Volume Boost Shampoo and Conditioner the night before to leave hair looking healthy and full of body

·  Distribute Dove Body & Lift Volumizing Mousse throughout and blow dry hair with round brush to add lift

· Divide hair into 5 sections: 1 top, 2 sides, 2 back

· Apply Dove Heat Defense Therapy Mist to individual sections immediately before applying curling iron to protect hair against heat styling damage

· Starting with the back section, use a double barrel curling iron on 3 inch sections of hair, letting the curled pieces fall and hair cool without pinning

· Continue to curl the entire head using the double barreled iron to create figure-eight style waves

·  Warm a pea-sized amount of Dove Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream between the palms of hands.  Rake fingers through hair to distribute product evenly for shiny, beachy texture.

·  Flip head upside down to slightly loosen up the look and spray Dove Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray with Natural Movement throughout.
