Get the look: Shailene Woodley

Best Female Performance winner Shailene Woodley rocked the carpet last night at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards with a French inspired, bold yet naturally radiant look, created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Roxy.

To achieve this look, Roxy hydrated Shailene’s face by applying Laurel Whole Plants Organic Skin Facial Elixir to her face, neck and décolletage. Next, to even out her skin tone and achieve a flawless finish, Roxy applied a sheer foundation with a beauty blender sponge. She then softly played up the definition of Shailene’s cheek bones with a warm cream RMS Bronzer. Following this, for extra radiance, Roxy applied RMS illuminizer down the bridge of Shailene’s nose, above and around the corners of her brows, in a C shaped manner.

For her eyes, Roxy applied a chocolate brown liner along the top and bottom lash lines, diffusing it softly with a petite eye brush. To emphasize the eyes a bit more, she layered a soft black liner on her top lid with a subtle smudge. Last but not least, Roxy focused on Shailene’s lips, applying a mixture of Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons in Napa Vineyard and Redwood Forest ($9, www.burtbees.com), for a rich, bold and creamy red that finished the look flawlessly.

The Look: Modern Rock Goddess

How-to:

· Create a center part. Flat iron hair at the root to remove any bumps and help create a smoother, sleeker ponytail.
· Using a flat brush, gather the hair into a low ponytail, securing with two bungee elastics
· Next, take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap around the base to cover the elastic, pin underneath
· Using a blueberry sized amount of TONI&GUY Casual Forming Spray Gel on fingertips and smooth out any fly aways and stray hairs. Apply along the part as a hair highlighter to give the effect of super glossy hair without using tons of products.
· Next, spray TONI&GUY Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray to the ponytail and let it dry to give the hair great texture and volume. Add waves to the ponytail using a medium size curling iron and alternate directions.

“007” “Total Look” in the house

Imagine this. You just went through 10 months of beauty school learning the fundamentals of becoming a hairdresser. Now its time to showcase what you learned, with no help and be graded on it. Would your nerves be going crazy? Your stomach be all in knots? But yet still be extremely excited that your 10 months of hard work is coming to an end? That was the feeling I got from The Villages Salon Professional Academy’s class July 2014. Better known as class 1407 (or as I call them 007).

Starting at 11:45AM on Thursday March 12, 2015 class 1407, all decked out in their class color LIME GREEN, started doing their “total look” model makeovers. This includes everything from hair color, hair cut, hair style and makeup application. They have about 3 hours to complete their whole look before presenting it to friends, family and fellow alumni. So with those creative juices flowing, they headed on their way. I was privileged to come as a judge for the students work. I couldn’t make up my mind who I thought should win because I saw so many great transformations. They were that good. While one student was doing a color correction another was doing a two tone effect and another was doing an up do. AHHHH HELP!!! LOL so many creative minds were going at once but as you can see in my photos many talented hairdressers.

After the 3 hours was up they waltzed their models up on the catwalk and many of us asked questions such “What was their inspiration for their models makeover” etc. Then they received their awards. One for each: Best Overall, Most Creative, and Best Technical. I wish we could have given them all an award but as they go through this journey they will receive so many rewards that will stick with them their whole lives. I bet your wondering who won?!

Well: Best Technical was Thersea Marie Vitali, Most Creative was Brittany Peeples and Best Overall was Alexis Cruz.

I enjoyed being back at TSPA and spending the day with the students. I want to thank TSPA staff and students as well as Janice Case for inviting me to come. Now you guys have the skills, and the education to go on and do many amazing things. With so many avenues to take in this industry you will find what it is you love and rock at it. Congratulations class 1407. YOU DID IT!!!!! Keep on rocking.

Students of class 1407 are:
Alexis Cruz, Brittany Peeples, Estafania Patino Salano, Cameron Balmer, Robert (Robbie) Coy, Manna McCloud, Liliana McDermott, Vanessa (Nessi Boo), Thersea Marie Vitali, Aimee Nicole, and Jack Reich

Get the Oscar look of Gwyneth Paltrow

GWYNETH PALTROW: GET THE LOOK WITH JOHN FRIEDA HAIR CARE

THE LOOK: Elegant, polished and refined

INSPIRATION: Inspired by Penelope Tree’s pre-fringe look, celebrity hairstylist Blake Erik gave Gwyneth Paltrow a simple, chic, and beautifully sleek look.

Here is his step-by-step breakdown:
•To begin, Blake washed the hair with John Frieda Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz Immunity Shampoo and Conditioner.
•Next, he prepped the hair by applying John Frieda Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz Immunity Primer.
•Then, Blake blowdried her hair straight using a round brush.
•For added sleekness, he flat-ironed hair from the chin down, keeping the lift at the roots from her blowout.
•Next, he created a deep side part and sectioned off the front side of the hair on both sides. The remaining back side of the hair was parted at ear level and pinned up.
•Blake then brushed the front sections back and under the pinned hair. He tied both sections together using a clear elastic band and let the remaining hair fall over the secured sections.
•For a touchable finish, he spritzed John Frieda Frizz Ease Keraflex Flexible Hold Hairspray all over her hair.
