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,

isla-fisher.jpgLooking for inspiration for a fun, yet classic look to wear for your next night out? We always love Isla Fisher’s look, and were especially captivated when she attended the L.A. premiere of ‘Bruno’— we had to get the scoop on the Shopaholic star’s flirty, retro look.

Makeup artist Mai Quynh wanted Isla’s the makeup to complement her ’60s-inspired Stella McCartney dress and bold accessories. To do so, she went heavy on the eye and left the rest of the face soft and glowing.

Get her look using products by mark:



“For Isla’s eyes, I started by using mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow in Corset, a rich charcoal color ($4.50,, applying it with an eyeliner brush,” says Mai. She then smudged the same color along Isla’s top and bottom lash lines, following it with mark Get in Line Hook Up Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner ($5.50, along the upper lash line. She finished this with two coats of black mascara.





For the face, Mai used bronzing powder on the cheeks, forehead and chin; face shimmer above the cheekbones; and pink powder blush to the apples of her cheeks. mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Swell, a sheer peach shade ($5.50,, finished the look.

Makeup artist Troy Jensen was responsible for creating the fun, and yet still sultry, look on the Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s star.

To create the lip look, Troy recommends defining lips with a deep pink lip liner. Follow that by applying a fuchsia lipstick, blot, then reapply. Keep it more matte (try Nars Semi-Matte Lipstick in Schiap ($24,, or for high-voltage shine, top with a fuchsia lipgloss like Nars Lip Lacquer in Hot Wired ($24,

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.
