Amy Winehouse Hair Gone Wild

62nd Annual Tony Awards – StyleBell Exclusive!

62nd Tony Awards Gift Lounge, Brooke Shields, Whoopi Goldberg, Mary Louise Parker

StyleBell Exclusive:  I was invited to hang with the celebs at the 62nd Annual Tony Award’s Offical Presenter Gift Lounge!  Yes that is where celebs get to pick and choose fab products.  The stars included Whoopi Goldberg, Brook Shields, Mary Louise Parker, Alec and Steven Baldwin, Laurence Fishburne, and the entire original case of Rent just to name a few.  Thanks Pureology for inviting me along on this ride of a lifetime! 

PureOlogy Serious Colour Care was the haircare sponsor of the Official Presenter Gift Lounge at the 62nd Annual Tony Awards.  So lets get down to the good stuff.  Which Pureology product did the stars love?

Before she headed out to host the main event, Whoopi Goldberg consulted with PureOlogy National Artistic Team Member Mary Katherine Hecht for the ultimate hair advice. Mary Katherine recommended the NanoWorks Shampoo and Condition. Whoopi was excited to try the product especially when she found out that it was 100% Vegan.

Lipstick Jungles, Brooke Shields made her way through the suite with her beautiful daughter on her hip. As she breezed through the PureOlogy booth she couldn’t pass up the ColourMax, since she plans on spending countless hours in the sun with her children.

The talented Mary Louise Parker fell in love with the HydrateShampoo and Condition for her daughter. She mentioned “My daughter has an afro, she needs hydration put back into her hair.”

Two Baldwin’s are better than one.  Alec and Steven Baldwin came through the suite together in their tuxes. Alec headed straight for the HoldFast. As he squirted a large amount of the gel on a napkin and rubbed his finger through it, he states “I know gel, and THIS is good gel.” Steven was no stranger to the product as he knew his wife was a fan.  Both Baldwin’s walked away with gift bags filled with product.

The talented Laurence Fishburne and his wife were excited to hear about PureOlogy, when we mentioned to the couple that the line is 100% Vegan, Laurence did a little groove, he was so excited and couldn’t wait to try the product.

It would not be the Tony’s unless the original cast of Rent showed up. The suite was packed with some of the most talented actors in the business, from Mimi, Roger to Angel, all were in love with the product and couldn’t wait to go home and try the 100% Vegan products.

StyleBell Trend Alert: Hats are Huge

sarah jessica parker hatsFrom Sarah Jessica Parker to Cameron Diaz, hats are all the rage with the media attention grabbing celebs. But can they work for the average American? I say 100% yes! Top hats, beanie hats, couture hats all can work within the confines of your own wardrobe if you are careful. If you are looking for a simple yet casual look you can always count on the beanie hat to create an uber cool look. A top hat can be used if you really want to make a head turning entrance. What about a couture hat? That can only work if you are Sarah Jessica Parker!

Ojon Hair Products

ojon hair productsOjon, a line of hair products, screams scrumptious.  I love that there is a real story behind this line of exclusive hair products including shampoos, conditioners, and styling products.  Ojon is inspired by rare palm nut oil found in the tropical Ojon tree.  For over 500 years the Miskito Indians, living on the lowlands along the Caribbean coast, have been using this rich Ojon oil as their secret to their beautiful hair and skin.  This unique tree grows only in the rainforest of the Mosquitia region of Central America.  The Miskito Indians are referred to as Tawira Indians, which means “the people of beautiful hair”. 

Still to this day the Tawira Indians still harvest and extract this rare Ojon oil as they have done for centuries.  Can you believe that!  Good for you Ojon. Sustaining the tribe and the natural environment is a very important step in sustaining the globe. Product review to come soon!  To learn more about Ojon view this incredible video.

Kate Hudson Hair Care Line: David Babaii for Wild Aid!

kate hudson hair care david babaii wild aidDavid Babaii and Kate Hudson have teamed up to launch a super inspirational line of eco-friendly hair products, David Babaii for Wild Aid.  A few months ago I mentioned the new launch.  Lucky me, David Babaii, was nice enough to send me a sneak peak on the product line including shampoos, conditioners, styling products, and appliances. 

I tested out the amplifying shampoo and conditioner and LOVE IT!  The shampoo is made from Polynesian white ginger and volumizing volcanic ash and is sulfate, paraben, and petroleum free!   I really felt good about using this product and the results were fab.  More volume, more shine, and a healthy glow!  All of this with no animal testing!  David Babaii for Wild Aid also has a bohemian beach spray which creates natural beach curls that are fantastic this time of year.  Run don’t walk and get yourself on the animal-eco-friendly band wagon.  The best part you don’t have to sacrifice your hair!
