Maria Menounos’ hair on the red carpet for Star Trek: Into Darkness definitely sparked vivid memories of 80s style for me. But where a bright scrunchy and teased bangs were missing, a classic and stylish twist on a staple hairstyle was taking shape. 

To get the look, you’ll need a small elastic band and a lightweight styling spritz, like Philip B. Self-Adjusting Hair Spray. Begin by separating the crown of your hair from the rest and pull it into a high ponytail. Secure the ponytail with the elastic, but try not to over adjust or tighten it too much, as doing so will create unseemly bumps in the hair style. Take some of the strands from the ponytail (a very small section will do the trick) and wrap them around the ponytail. You will wrap the ends into the ponytail holder to ensure they stay. Lastly, to ensure the front strands stay in place, spritz some of the finishing spray on your hair. You don’t want helmet head, so just a couple spritzes will do the trick — take it from me, the Philip B. Self-Adjusting Hair Spray acts as the perfect thin mist hair spray! 
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

Of course we knew the stars of the Great Gatsby would bring their A-List beauty game to the highly anticipated premiere of the film at Lincoln Center in New York City on May 1. But what we didn’t expect was that Gatsby co-star Isla Fisher would steal the spotlight with her deep hot pink lip, retro black cat eyeliner, and super glam deep side part and waves. Ok! Magazine spilled the full details on the retro look straight from Fisher’s makeup artist Katye Denno. With the exception of one product, the look was done completely with organic and natural makeup brands. Denno’s inspiration for the look was to make Isla look like an “old-time, glamorous Hollywood movie star.” Mission definitely accomplished.

Jamie Greenberg, mark’s Celebrity Makeup Artist, wanted ‘Mad Men’ star Jessica Pare’s look to be “glamorous, neat and conservative. We decided to go for a clean girly look: all pinks, and a tight line on the lid and lashes.” We got the full scoop from Jamie herself on just how to recreate Jessica’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner look.

Eyes: “I started by applying mark Please Hold Eye Primer to create a strong base. Next, I swiped the light pink shade from mark On the Dot Pastel Eye Color Compact onto Jessica’s lids. I framed the eyes using mark Get in Line Hook Up Liquid Waterproof Liner in Painted Black and finished the look by applying mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black on Jessica’s top and bottom lashes.” 

Face & Cheeks: “I started by applying mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer to create a strong base. Next, I applied mark Got the Goods Multi-Benefit Foundation Lotion SPF 15 in Very Light 2 to moisturize and even the skin. I blended mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky into Jessica’s cheekbones, followed by mark That’s Brilliant Face & Eye Luminizer for a natural flush and gorgeous highlight. I set the look by applying mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder on Jessica’s T-zone.”

Lips: “I applied mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Baby Luv to complete the sweet, girly look.”
