STEAL FASHION’S LATEST HAIRSTYLE: THE DOWNTOWN AMERICANA!

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Alexander Wang’s Spring 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection was very personal.  Inspired by the contributions of America’s immigrant population, the collection drew from a melting pot of cultures and was referred to as “Immigrant America.”  Superstar celebrity hairdresser, Guido Palau, styled top models, including Kaia Gerber, Behati Prinsloo, and Bella Hadid.

Starting with clean, damp hair and a messy part, sectioned large pieces of hair and dried the ends first with the Dyson Supsersonic hair dryer (“to flatten out any volume and remove frizz”), section by section.  To keep the roots lying flat, Palau blew them dry, while keeping the middle portion of the hair more natural.  Then he applied Redken No Blow Dry Cream at the bottom of the hair, “so the ends will be smooth while the hair still looks natural,” and NBD Cream at the roots, pulling through.  Beginning at the bottom and working up to to the top, Palau sprayed Spray Shine Flash 02 to the hair, section by section.  Celebrity tip:  “When using the products, make sure they are even all around the head to achieve the natural look.”  To complete the look, Palau returned with the Dyson Supersonic, blowing and brushing at the ends of the hair “to get the ends really straight and spiky for texture,” before applying the signature Alexander Wang bandana.

GOING FOR THE GOLD: STARS PREP FOR THE MET BALL!

Monday, May 1st, 2017


Kate Hudson shared images of herself on social media preparing for Monday night’s Met Gala, an event affectionately known as The Oscars of The East.  Covered in a golden facial mask (above), she captioned the image,”Off to a good start.” Similarly preparing for their closeups were gilded model, Bella Hadid, and fashion designer, Alexander Wang (below).  Benefits of the 24k gold mask are believed to be rapid cell renewal and rejuvenation, increased elasticity and cell metabolism, reduction in inflammation and breakdown of collagen, and improved circulation for an enhanced overall glow.

Hosted by Vogue editor, Anna WintourKaty Perry, Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, and Pharrell Williams, the gala celebrates the opening of  the Rei Kawakubo exhibit, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.”  Officially called the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute benefit, the gala raises money for the Costume Institute, the only department of the Metropolitan Museum which must fund its own exhibitions.  The Costume Institute underwent a complete renovation in 2014 and became known as the Anna Wintour Costume Center.
