Oh, don’t you just love the parade of gowns, hairstyles, makeup and polish? We look forward to seeing what Hollywood comes up with every year and what trends we can take away from that very special Oscar walk down the red carpet. What did we notice, love and now recommend to you?
White Gowns. Oh they glittered, like Milla Jovovich’s and were revealed beautifully, like Gywenth Paltrow’s. Even Robin Roberts of ABC was wearing white and Octavia Spencer’s gown really did her curves justice. Lots of eye candy for brides-to-be to get some ideas about what kind of gown (at least the shape) to rock at their own weddings!
Hair. Tina Fey’s amazing, glamorous updo, JLo’s bun (not many wear it better), Jessica Chastain’s sexy-not-overdone bump and curls, George’s leading Lady Stacy Keibler’s side-swept look and Jovovich’s short, natural style. There are so many ideas for Prom, Weddings, and special days!
Nails. This is the first Oscars that we can remember nails being such a focus and we like it! We’d give an Oscar to JLo’s sexy red-tipped French manicure by Tom Bachik and the dark nails on Kristen Wiig, Octavia, Natalie Portman and others were eye catching and vampy! We approved of Keibler and Amy Admas, who both wore metallic dresses, kept it neutral with OPI’s Samoan Sand. We can see all of these looks on our clients!
Makeup. Oh how we loved Michelle William’s lip color to go with that fabulous dress! We loved the black liquid liner eyes on the stars like JLo and Chastain and the bright lips on Angelina Jolie, the striking Rooney Mara and and Jovovich. And once again, JLo impressed with her natural-toned shadow and lips. More looks we see coming straight off the red carpet and onto our beautiful clients!
We agree with AZ Spa Girl Fan Cathy who says: “A hair tip from me is to ask a professional what products should be used for a specific look you want to achieve.” We agree! Getting the look you want may be as simple as getting your hands on the right retail products and Luxe Salon & Spa only has the best. We are proud to offer the Moroccan Oil and Bumble & Bumble lines, both of which received the 2011 Best Beauty Buy designations from InStyle Magazine. Along with its beauty editors, Instyle asks industry experts what their picks are for various categories. We should mention that Bumble’s Styling Creme has been honored four years in a row. Our professionals will help you find the hair products you need to create the look you want.
