Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Connie Britton & Infusium

Infusium is excited to celebrate this year’s Golden Globes with Julia Louis-Dreyfus AND Connie Britton, donning their next generation of Infusion products that transform hair heath with every use.

Renowned celebrity stylist, Matthew Monson (@matthewmonzon), worked his magic for Best Actress in a Comedy nominee, Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ effortlessly chic look, while Connie Britton’s gorgeous style was created by celebrity stylist, Enzo Angileri (@enzoangileri). Both stylists used Infusium to ensure these ladies hair stayed healthy during and even after their struts on the red-carpet.

See below for the “How To’s” from Matthew and Enzo, and the Infusium products they used…

“GET THE LOOK” FROM MATTHEW MONZON:

For Julia Louis Dreyfus’ look tonight I wanted her hair to look soft, shiny and stunning.
First, I washed and conditioned her hair with the Infusium Repair + Renew Shampoo and Conditioner.
Next, to protect her hair from any damage, I sprayed Infusium Repair + Renew Leave-In Treatment from mid shaft through the ends combing through with a wide toothcomb.
Then I took a quarter size amount of Infusium Repair + Renew Leave-In Crème emulsified in my hands, and worked through the last 3 inches of the hair to help eliminate frizz and flyaways.
I started drying her hair using just my hands, and lifting her strands for texture and root volume. After it was half way dry, I incorporated a round brush to finish and create even more volume.
To keep with Julia’s signature style, I created a strong center part with a tailcomb. Then separated her hair into large sections, and starting curling using a large barrel iron for a more tousled feeling.
To finish the look, I used the Infusium Repair + Renew Smoothing Serum to smooth over the ends and give a bit more definition to the hair.

“GET THE LOOK” FROM ENZO ANGILERI:

I wanted Connie’s style to look elegant, shiny and smooth.
I started by washing and conditioning her hair with the Infusium Repair + Renew Shampoo and Conditioner.
While her hair was still wet, I parted the hair down the middle and then sprayed Infusium Repair + Renew Leave-In Treatment to the ends of her hair.
Then I sectioned her hair into about 20 sections and starting drying with a round brush. After, I pinned each section up like a roller and let it set for about 5 minutes for volume and natural wave. I took out the pins and brushed her hair so the waves would loosen.
Starting from the back of the head, I used a 1.5 inch curling iron and began curling the hair to accentuate the soft waves.
When finished, I lightly brushed it out again for that natural look. I applied the Infusium Repair + Renew Smoothing Serum at the top of her head, near her part to avoid fly aways!

“Stylist Brad Goreski chose a stunning black and navy blue gown, given the classic color combination I decided to edge it up with a strong smokey eye, dewy highlighted skin and a nude lip with a brown undertone,” said Allan.

Allan prepped Sarah’s skin by using the new Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Eye Serum under the eyes, and moisturized and softened lips with a few swipes of Eight Hour® Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15.

To create a smoldering smokey eye, Allan used Elizabeth Arden‘s Beautiful Color Eyeshadow in Sparkling Sable, Bronze Lustre and Sugar Cube.

He then applied Beautiful Color Precision Glide Eyeliner in Black Velvet on the upper lashline dragging it towards her temples creating a cat eye shape and finally rimmed the bottom waterline with the in the Sapphire shade.

For flutter and volume, he applied two generous coats of Grand Entrance Mascara in Stunning Black to her top and bottom lashes, and defined and deepened her brows with Beautiful Color Natural Eye Brow Pencil in Brownette.

by Lisa Gal

Knowing that you aren’t alone in this whole midlife crisis thing is somewhat reassuring, or at least humorous. Australian author Tara Freeman reveals insights into her life in “Fine Wine and a Midlife Crisis” in a straightforward yet startlingly honest way. Inspired to help others and fulfill her goal of writing a book before she turned 40, Tara has dedicated her memoir of sorts to “all the women who helped make the bad times good and the good times memorable.” So grab a glass of wine and read her telling look into her approach to 40. I’m sure you will be able to relate, but this time with tears of laughter. Lucky are the 2017 red carpet nominees and talent staying at the Four Seasons Hotel this weekend as they will each receive a copy in their Hollywood Swag Bag honoring the weekend event.

Luxury Briefs for your Beau

by Lisa Gal

As a woman I must admit, we have so many styles and fabrics for our unmentionables, but what about for men? You are pretty much stuck with cotton, most likely some kind of woven knit or cotton blend.  But men, what if you could have a velvet front panel and undercarriage incorporated (plush side in of course)? Pretty sure that would put a skip in your step. Well, wish no longer because the brainchild of Elephant Trunks, Ilenna Copley from Australia, has made her dream come to fruition. She has also expanded her brand to include Everyday Elephants, Wet Elephants (swimwear), custom elephants and more coming soon! Tomorrow these luxury briefs will be gifted in the Hollywood Swag Bags being giving to the nominees and talent staying at the Four Seasons Hotel this award show weekend.

Make All Year the Season of Giving

kenya_in_3d-940x412

by Lisa Gal

If you are looking for a new opportunity for giving this year, consider the California based Alabaster Mobile Clinic. According to Alabaster the clinic’s strategy of care is characterized by “a “household model,” which means health services are provided through individual home visits within each community.” Their focus was building a clinic in Kenya and bringing water to the location. This past summer they wanted to deepen their ties there, so in addition to continuing quality medical care through a series of clinics, they created a program aimed at building connections, empowering youth and understanding the community through the eyes of their hosts. The Alabaster Mobile Clinic is a non-profit, charitable healthcare organization that is the featured charity affiliated with the Hollywood Swag Bags this Golden Globe Weekend.
