    The Highs and Lows of the MET Gala – Well…According to Me, Anyway

    I so want to be nice but I am feeling like there were just so many lows on the red carpet. I mean, are celebrities just taking themselves so seriously they don’t think they have to work at it anymore? Anyhoo, let’s start with some positive energy and focus on my only two fave looks of the evening.

    What Do You Think of Britney Spears’ Coloured Hair Extensions?

    Have you seen the cover of Britney Spears’ latest single, I Wanna Go yet? If not, what rock have you been living under? Anyhoo, on the cover (pictured below), Britney is looking better than I’ve seen her look in a long time. I love the subdued yet funky makeup and the natural complexion. Gorgeous!

    When it comes to the coloured hair extensions though, I’m just not sure. What do you guys think? Other celebs in Hollywood are starting to don this look, too. I want to know what you think: is the coloured hair extensions trend hot…or just not? Share your opinion in the comments below.

    I haven’t officially announced it here yet so for all who are unaware, I’m getting married! The wedding is this October, only four months away. Now that the dress has been selected (OMG, loves it!) it’s time to start thinking of hair and makeup options.

    And for hair….do I go with Alessandra Ambrosio‘s loose, ultra-luscious waves or Angelina Jolie‘s super classy half-up ‘do? So many decisions. I need your help, beauties! Give me your opinion in the comments below. I need to set up a hair trial appointment ASAP!

    A Few Fabulous Products for Beachy Hair…

    As much as I’d love to be on a beach right now, I’m not! I love that messy, wavy hair I get after a day at the beach. It’s such a trendy look this year in fact, that celebs Like Kate Hudson and the Olsen Twins have become pros at sporting the look. (Although let it be known that I in no way approve of Kate Hudson’s weird hair jewellery below!)

    If you’re looking for some fab tips on how to achieve the look, read my article for Real Style Network here. Still looking for a few affordable products to get the look yourself – without spending a ton of money?

    First things first, try Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS Dust It ($23.50). This powder instantly adds texture to the hair and loads of volume. I am a huge powder fan these days, especially when I’m in need of instant volume. Just rub your hands through your hair to blend this powder in and flip your head upside down while you do it. You’ll get Kate’s to-die-for waves in no time.

    If your hair is fine and doesn’t hold up too long, try Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray ($23.80). This product is super lightweight and it gives your hair a shiny look. It also adds to the flexible, yet sturdy texture of your hair. This will make your hair look like Adriana Lima’s at a Victoria’s Secret photo shoot!

    Finally, remember that messy-style waves doesn’t mean having a poorly- kept mane. Flyaways and frizz will sort of rain on your beachy hair parade so before getting to work on styling, LaCoupe Perfect Curls Frizz Control Cream ($6.99) to keep your locks under control 24/7.

    You can always head to the beach and get the look the natural way…but in case you can’t sneak in a vacay soon enough, these products will definitely help you out.

    Battle of the Redheads: Blake Lively vs. Drew Barrymore

    I actually find Blake Lively’s new, much talked about red hair colour to be more strawberry blond than red, but I suppose that’s neither here nor there since eveyrone else keeps calling it red. She hit the scene with her new Drew Barrymore-type locks and honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about it. I don’t love this look on her and I think her blond ‘do was a way better fit, but maybe I’m just a big ol’ meanie who happens to be having a bad hair day myself.

    What do you think of Blake’s new hairstyle? Who do you think rocks this colour better? Drew or Blake? (I say Drew, but I still think Blake is super gorgeous.)

    Get on the Sleek and Shiny Hair Trend with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray

    While you may not all be fans of Kim Kardashian, you have to admit, her hair is fabulous! I love it when she leaves it down, but being the trend-setting beautista that she is, Kim also knows how to sport one of 2011’s hottest hair trends. 

    The sleek and shiny tightly pulled back look hit the runways for spring this year and apparently designers are celebs alike are falling in love with it. Call me crazy but this look made my list of faves this season simply because it’s the perfect solution to a bad hair day!

    To nail Kim’s look yourself, pull your hair back as tightly as you can with a paddle brush and secure with a new elastic. Don’t grab a 3-year-old elastic which has lost all of its elasticity! Grab a newbie and wrap that ‘do up. Then, I recommend finishing off with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray ($25.80).

    Now don’t be scared. Shine spray doesn’t make your hair look dirty as long as you apply it correctly. Hold the bottle a few inches above your hair and spray the product once or twice at most. Wait for the spray to settle and dry and then you’ll be ready to go.

    It’s very simple but many of us have a bad relationship with shine spray, only because we’re using it improperly. Trust me, when done correctly, this provides a nice, shiny finish. Besides, when has Moroccanoil ever led us down the wrong path?

    Remember that less is more and you’ll turn your hair into a shiny and sleek runway hairstyle in no time. And you can use it when your hair is down, too. Just give it a quick spritz, let it set and just like that you’ll have ultra-shiny, lustrous-looking hair this summer! You can find these goodies at select salons. Visit their website for more info.

    Hot Summer Hairstyle: The Cropped Bob! Plus, Tips on How to Manage It

    I actually have never cared much about Emma Watson. And then she cut her hair and I fell in love with her ‘do. Now she’s one of my favourite celebs ever! I love how she rocks this amazing cropped cut. Truly one of the first celebs to get on this trend, Emma pulls off the hottest look of the summer perfectly and she looks absolutely gorgeous.

    Lucky for you, Nhi Tran, Creative Director at Sassoon Salon Toronto has given me some great tips on how you can pull off a short ‘do this summer, too. Before we get into maintenance, remember to discuss which style bob suits your face best with your hairstylist first: layered, extra short, or fringed. Here are some of my favourite bobs for summer to get you thinking.

    The Fringed Bob: This extra cropped cut, just like Emma’s, is among the easiest to maintain but it’s definitely a trend for the bold and daring.

    The Asymmetrical Bob: This longer version of the cropped cut is ultra-hot and super chic for summer 2011. I love the smooth, straight texture of it and the asymmetrical shape makes it both elegant and modern.

    The Extreme Side Part Bob: Parting hair on the side is out and extreme side parts are taking over. The separation being all the way to one side makes the cropped hairstyle edgy and rock chic. I recommend this look for the gals who aren’t shy to make a statement.

    Once you’ve got your bob in place, Nhi Tran has three fab product choices you’ll need to maintain your new trendy hairstyle. She recommends Davines For Wizards Sea Salt Primer No. 14 for the messy, beachy look Emma’s got going on. This sea salt-based styling product will give your hair texture, volume and the perfect messy look.

    For evenings when you may seeking a little more of a smooth look, Nhi recommends Davines For Wizards Mat Forming Ground No. 13. This product will give your shorter hair structure and body even though it promises strong hold.

    If you have coloured cropped hair, Nhi suggests Kérastase Elixir Ultime Serum. This new nourishing product will keep your coloured hair, soft, smooth and healthy, no matter what you do to style it.

    The cropped hairstyle is super easy to maintain for summer is definitely a huge trend for 2011. Will you dare to try it this season? If you do, send me pics to post on the blog!

    Golden Globes: Celebrity Hits and Misses

    I look forward to award shows only to see the red carpet looks of my favourite stars. I love the see the elegant dresses of stars like Katherine Zeta Jones and the quirky ensembles put together by out-there stars like Helena Bonham Carter (two different colour shoes? She’s awesome).

    One of my all-time favourite actresses is the talented and ridiculously beautiful Halle Berry. I loved her look last night. From her tousled hair to her subdued makeup and nude lips, she perfectly offset her elegant and super sexy outfit. The reason I love her subdued makeup is because it shows us all that you don’t need three pounds of makeup to look marvellous. True, Halle has got some amazing genes that we all wish we had, but her subtle smoky eye and natural lips made her look classic, elegant and chic, as usual.

    I think Natalie Portman’s look was also a huge hit. She looked so adorable in that pink Viktor & Rolf gown which complemented her natural pregnancy glow. Natalie went for the just bitten red lips look and it worked. She matched it with a sophisticated hair twist and it was the perfect combo. Congrats on this mommy-to-be’s Golden Globe win for her role in Black Swan and congrats on her Beauty Booty-approved look.

    January Jones. What can I say? I was a little on the fence about her look but in the end, I’ve decided I love it. Her scarlet red lips and vamp blond hairstyle gave her an old Hollywood look. The bright red dress (which seemed to be the colour of choice for most celebs, along with forest green) tells me that red is going to be a hot trend this spring so it’s nowhere near over in the beauty world. Get yourself a scarlet red lip colour ASAP.

    Speaking of Scarlett, this brings to my one style diss of the evening. Scarlett Johansson’s hairstyle was, unfortunately, just atrocious. It sort of reminded me of the Bride of Frankenstein’s hairdo and I really didn’t like it. It wouldn’t have matched quirky celeb but I expected more elegance and sophistication from this bombshell. Overall: disappointed.

    Which celebs do you think rocked it last night? And which ones do you think need to hire new stylists?
