Fashion Week: Aveda at John Patrick Organics!

JPO_9.10.09_Aveda_1Aveda was all Bohemian Chic at the John Patrick Organics Fashion Show at the Keen’s Steakhouse yesterday!  The hair style was super sexy and romantic.  John Patrick told us “This season, I wanted to dig deep below the surface of Bohemian style, and create a free-spirited look that’s chic, pretty, and fresh.  I was inspired by a photograph taken at the Krazy Kat Club in the 1920’s and sought to create of a dressy, “wholesome Bohemia,” defined by artistic endeavor and intellectual pursuit.  The collection is bright and optimistic—true Bohemians are enthusiasts.  It features a mix-match of happy, classic Bohemia and chic, wear-anywhere utility pieces.  The mix-and-match strategy is signature Organic, but shows my wholesome, Bohemian point-of-view.  What’s Bohemia without self-expression?” StyleBell agrees. 

Odile Gilbert was the Aveda lead stylist, creating the magical Bohemian looks.  When asked how to re-create this look at home Odile gave StyleBell the inside scoop.  “This look is gorgeous and easy to recreate for day or evening.  Prep hair with Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam and create a deep side part.  Spray hair with Aveda Air Control Hair Spray and curl with a one-inch barrel curling iron.  Brush through to create soft, full waves.  Smooth the top of hair with Aveda Light Elements Shaping Wax to tame flyaways and achieve a smooth, modern finish.  Lastly, twist the front curl back and secure with a barrette, adding Air Control Hair Spray for volume and hold.”  Thanks Odile!

Your Curly Hair Defined by DevaCurl

DevaCurl is definitely the curly girl’s best friend!  I recently had the chance to connect with DevaCurl and it was amazing.  I learned so many new and intriguing facts about curly hair that I had to share with you!  Below is DevaCurl’s 411 on everything curly!
Curls are like fingerprints; no tow curls are alike.  All curls need individual attention – a little nurturing and some tLC – to become their curly best.  The question is, which Curly Girl are you?  DevaCurl, the premier Curly Experts, will iron out the kinks in this hair mystery and help you find your inner Curly Girl.  The good news is there are some tired-and-true Curly Girl categories that hold the key to your hair’s needs and to maximize its curly potential.
When you look in the mirror, what do you see (or what do you think you should see)?
The Corkscrew – You know you have corkscrew curls if:
Your hair role model is Lorraine Massey, the “original” curly girl
When cut too short, “tightly wound” doesn’t even begin to describe it
You have coily curl texture
Your curls beg for moisture and soak up as much conditioner as you give them
The frizz factor has made you question whether it’s even worth going outside on a rainy day
The Botticelli – You know you have Botticelli curls if:
Your hair role model is Sarah Jessica Parker
Your curls gracefully cascade instead of sticking straight out
Your curl texture is fine to medium
Those gorgeous curls on the bottom layer of your hair are often overshadowed by the not-so-curly top layer
Wavy Curls – You know you have Wavy Curls if:
Your hair role models are sex kittens, Eva Mendez and Penelope Cruz
Your hair occasionally develops a natural wave, which you’ve tried to blow straight
Your hair texture can be fine to medium, wavy or straight
Your hair has a tendency to look unkempt
Your hair often looks flat at the crown
S’wavy Curls:  You know you have S’wavy curls if:
Your hair role model is Kate Winslet
Your hair seems straight, but could be encouraged to do a bit more
You think your hair is incapable of the perfect wave

Celeb Style: Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan - New York Magazine CoverAh, Lindsay Lohan. Nude photos huh? Funny, we’ve all seen you up close and personal many a time getting in and out of your rides sans-bloomers. Oh, but this is different, a photo shoot, I get it! New York Magazine (one of my faves) has plucked little miss fresh from rehab and I’ll never do it again Lohan out of obscurity? Oops, I mean tabloid central to pose in nothing but her freckles as none other than Marilyn. Monroe. Dare I even type that? There’s only ONE Marilyn. But really, all you need is that classic Marilyn blonde ‘do and your three-quarters of the way to pulling it off. Complete glamour captured in time, her hairstyle must be the most iconic style around. One quick glance at the strands and it’s pure Marilyn. As for Lindsay, I’ll admit it, she does looks great. Just keep it clean Li-Lo, keep it clean – unfortunately we all know what happened to dear Marilyn.
