Actress Marion Cotillard attended the premiere of her new film “Little White Lies” at the Toronto Film Festival wearing a chic black Lefranc Ferrant dress with Dior shoes, and hair styled by Robert Vetica.

I loved her hair: It had a fresh, Holly Golightly mood with a strong side-part swept back, and hair tied in a ponytail at the crown.

How Robert Vetica Created The Look:
“I first gave Marion a new haircut with bangs to reshaped her hair and make the bangs prominent. I then blow dried her hair using argan-oil infused Moroccanoil Treatment to give smooth shine and protect it from the heat of the dryer.”
After making a low, side part, Robert blow dried her hair from the part to the side, and did a bit of backcombing to add some fullness at the crown before spraying Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to help the teased hair stay in place.

“I then re-wet her bangs and restyled them, adding just a bit of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to give her hair a touch of weight and hold them in place. Next, I swooped up the hair into a high ponytail placed just below her crown. Finally, I wrapped the base of the ponytail with her own hair to cover the elastic. This gave the ponytail more swing, thanks to its greater width!”

Bang Braids
The dog days of summer are around the corner and even though we can’t wait for their arrival, every girl knows what that means for their hair. Nothing zaps a great style faster than humidity so you will need to meet the humidity head on with a quick hair fix. Braiding your hair across the front of your head is a simple way to look great whether it’s 65 or 90 degrees out. Do you have thin hair that would make a wimpy braid? Grab a Platinum Seamless clip-in hairpiece to add some bulk to your braid. This celebrity inspired style has been seen on Jennifer Aniston at award shows and Lauren Conrad on MTV. Braids are an age free accessory!

For the April/May 2010 issue of Los Angeles Confidential Magazine, celebrity hairdresser Marcia Hamilton created soft, romantic waves for cover model Kimora Lee Simmons.

The look, as always with Kimora, was super hot. Want to steal the look? Check out this how to, and have it in five easy steps.

Step 1: Start out by spraying a volumizer from foot to ends, then brush product evenly throughout the hair.

Step 2: Take small sections of hair, starting from the bottom of the head. Blow-dry each section using a medium round bristle brush.

Step 3: Next set the hair with using the 1.33 Inch White Sands Curling Iron. Pin each curl at the base then spray with a medium hold thermal hairspray for added hold and shine. Let the curls sit for a few minutes.

Step 4: Unpin the curls then brush out while head is suspended upside down. This position creates added volume at the root.

Step 5: Flip head back and shake the curls into place for a soft tussled look. Finish with a light mist hairspray.

Romantic curls are HOT for summer, and Kimora’s are no exception. Wear yours with your favorite Grecian sandals and flowing dress – you’ll be stopping ships in no time at all.

Justin Bieber has told everyone that it only takes 5 minutes to do his hair! Justin, the new tween and teen craze states “I spend five minutes on it. I use shampoo, conditioner – basically whatever is in the hotel – and blowdry. I cut it every time I have a TV appearance, or when my mum says it’s too long,”

Justin Bieber also says he does not want to be defined by his hair. He says “Your hair doesn’t make you who you are. It’s part of my image, it’s not who I am.” Don’t we all love Justin!

Steal Scarlett Johansson’s Hair at Iron Man 2

We love to hate Scarlett Johansson – she’s just so attractive, and her fresh, softly textured updo at her recent movie premiere was no exception.

The look was created by leading celebrity stylist David Babaii, and it was a perfect complement to the flowing waves and graceful lines of her ice blue Armani Prive dress, the look emphasized a flowing cascade of smooth, well-conditioned waves pulled back into a graceful bun.

In styling Scarlett, Babaii used Argan Oil-infused Moroccanoil products to create the fabulous effect. “I started with wet hair, working in Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream for gentle hold and to create a texture that was soft and smooth. With my hands, I then scrunched her hair and manipulated it to get the desired shape that I was looking for. I also used a diffuser to help shape the curls.

“Next, I gathered Scarlett’s hair and pinned it around the back of her head to create a simple and elegant bun. The curls looked beautiful and defined themselves. To complete the look, I misted Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray all over. Scarlett’s hair looked fresh and soft, with lustrous curls and fabulous shine. The Morrocanoil products were amazing to work with and helped complete the perfect red carpet look!”

Isn’t it fabulous? As the weather gets hotter and more humid, we need more tips and tricks up our sleeve to survive the elements. A look like this is a great weapon in that battle! Try to be careful with use of products like Argan oil – they are amazingly effective, but very concentrated. So only use small amounts, or your hair may just look like it needs to be washed!

Lea Michele, the star of my fav new show Glee, puts her hair through the ringer each and every day. Lea Michele’s hair routine starts with blow drying, then straightening with an iron, and then adding extensions! My gosh that is a daily routine. What is her secret to keeping her hair healthy? Use protection on your hair. Yes like a thermal protector. It is so important to use a thermal protector on your hair daily to help fight the effects of heat damage. This is even if you just use a hair dryer. I use the CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protector and I love it since it is light and doesn’t leave a nasty residue on my hair.
