Florence Welch's Braided Head Band Up 'Do AKA-Get the Look with Davines

Braids have long been trending in Hollywood (and are always in if you happen to be a mom to little girls). Lately the braids have become more and more creative and intricate, with braided headbands being one of the biggest braided styles to surface recently. Whether your hair is curly or straight, long or short, thin or thick, there is a way to achieve and personalize this great style. Here is an example (and step by step instructions on how to do it) of a gorgeously executed hairstyle that incorporates this popular trend.

Rose Byrne's Gorgeous, Glamorous Waves-AKA: Get the Look With John Frieda

Rose Byrne at the Lucky Magazine soiree

When I originally saw this press release, I hesitated a bit trying to determine whether or not to share it, since I recently did a celebrity/John Frieda look post featuring Zoe Saldana. But then realized that the same products were used for both looks and I love how that just goes to show the versatility of John Frieda's awesome products. So if you'd like to achieve Rose Byrne's gorgeous, old Hollywood waves, here are step by step instructions:

Streekers Totally Make Me Jelly...

It's been ages since I've dyed my hair and with the exception of 2 or 3 grays, I have a head full of very (very) dark tresses. I've grown to love my natural color and don't often wish to change it, but some of the latest trends have me itching for a change. I love the look of chalking and admired the look of pink highlights on the likes of Demi Lovato, January Jones, Lauren Conrad. Come to think of it, I've always been a fan of off the wall touches of color, ever since Gwen Stefani started sporting them way back when. Recently, Christina Aguilera transitioned the look for fall, by adding purple streaks to the tips of her blonde tresses.

Tracey Cunningham and Redken Color Your Summer

I have been infatuated with red hair since I was very little. I believe I was around 13 or 14 years old when my mother allowed me to use my first semi permanent hair rinse and for years following that I continued to experiment with different products to achieve the perfect shade of red for me. I dabbled in highlights and a little bit of blonde from time to time, but red was always my main objective; my hair was never entirely in it's natural hue until I was pregnant with Lo. That was about 5 years ago, and I haven't colored my hair in over 6 years (the hubby likes my hair exactly the way that it grows out of my head, so I'm okay with keeping it that way...for now). My hair is the same shade as my eyes-the darkest brown it can be, so dark it appears to be black until the sun hits it, allowing you to see its true richness. I have 2 gray hairs on my head (and one gray eyelash and a few grays in my eyebrows as well) and I sport them proudly (right now I view them as a badge of honor and as something that I have earned, though I do pluck the grays in my brow).

I still am fascinated by red hair and hair color in general, especially as I see the great advances in products, techniques, and shades lately. As is the case with most trends in fashion, the warm weather of the summer signals the time turn up the heat, even in hair color! This season, the most popular hair colors are golden brunettes, vibrant redheads and platinum blondes.  Moving away from the cooler brunette and red tones of last season, Tracey Cunningham, Celebrity Colorist and Redken Creative Consultant for Color has the latest in Spring/Summer hair color trends and professional haircolor products to achieve these trends and get the hottest looks for the season.
