    Celebrity Trend: Ombré Hair

    Ombré hair came out last year but no one was really sure whether or not it would catch on. This spring, we know for sure: ombré hair is in. Looking at celebs like Jessica Biel (one of my favourite examples of the hair trend), it’s easy to see why it’s set to be on our radars for the next little while. Not only is it a more natural look, but it’s super easy to maintain. Who knew letting your roots grow out could be such a fabulous thing?

    Nikki Braithwaite, senior colorist and owner of Salon Escape in Toronto says the two-tone look is fashionable and easy to pull off. “Any colour will work and most lengths, too,” she says.

     

    Lily Aldridge, Rachel Bilson and Whitney Port are also great examples of how to rock ombré hair. They manage to pull off that tousled look that seems effortlessly chic. Lighter ends are definitely hot for the summer season (which I am desperately waiting for, by the way). The key is to make sure you keep your ends hydrated and smooth to prevent it from looking like it’s just poorly maintained. I recommend leave-in conditioners and hair masks once a week to keep your locks soft, smooth and hydrated.

    “For the younger, fashion-forward generation, this trend is here to stay,” Nikki says. Will you be trying out this look for yourself this spring?

    Get Whitney Port’s Natural Makeup

    If you saw the star of The City, Whitney Port, at this year’s MMVAs then you may have noticed how understated and chic her makeup was. To offset her colourful attire that night, Whitney went the natural makeup route and she rocked it.

    MAC Cosmetics was behind-the-scenes and Senior Makeup Artist Jane McKay gave Whitney her natural-looking complexion and groovy ’60s eyeliner. Here are the products she used so you can score Whitney’s red carpet look yourself.

    Jane highlighted Whitney’s cheek bones with M·A·C Iridescent Loose Powder in Silver Dusk (pictured below). She then added a touch of Mineralize Blush in Dainty just to give this celeb’s cheeks a naturally flushed look.

    To get the ’60s-inspired cat-eye, Jane used two intense black eyeliners. She used the Eye Kohl in Smolder and M·A·C’s infamous Fluidline Eyeliner in Blacktrack (pictured — I love this one).

    To finish off and keep Whitney’s makeup looking flawless for the cameras all night long, Jane dusted on a light layer of Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder. Translucent, colourless powders are great for fixing makeup in place. They don’t change the colour of your makeup, they lock everything in all night long and they keep excess sebum under control so you don’t have to worry about oily buildup on our T-zone.

    All these products are currently available at MAC counters and online.
