If it wasn’t already obvious, purple is officially the “It” hair color right now. The pastel lilac hue has caught on, and it seems to be here to stay.
Ever notice how glam your hair tends to look after a day spent by the ocean? Even if you can’t make it to the beach anytime soon, you can still get perfectly tousled waves, AKA “beach hair“, regardless of your hair type, and with very little effort!
Most people have some sort of natural wave to their hair anyway, and using texturizing products is a great way to bring them out. Blow Pro Beach Blow Texturzing Mist captured the very essence of bohemian beach waves. This natural weightless mist is a carefully constructed blend of marine extracts, Dead Sea salts and milk proteins. Never sticky or stiff, Blow Pro Beach Blow Texturzing Mist adds fullness and volume by strengthening and thickening the hair’s cuticle
Using Beach Blow texturizing mist to create beach waves is pretty simple. Onto wet or damp hair, spray on the ends of your hand and scrunch up to your roots. Either let it air dry or use a diffuser, and you’re good to go! Personally, I find that this method gives me even better second-day beach hair than right after it dries – just apply a little After Blo Finishing Spray and Weather Girl Anti Frizz to rejuvenate your waves.
Marine extracts and Dead Sea salts thicken, texturize and enliven hair without drying it out. Moisture is locked in to give a natural seaside sheen. Nourishing milk proteins add flexibility and luminosity with a soft matte finish.
What sets Blow Pro apart from the rest? Developed, tested and proven by the experts at Blow, New York’s premier blow dry bar, Blow Pro hair care is formulated with an exclusive pure protein blend that is nourishing yet weightless – delivering all the protection you need and the lasting style you want. Blow Pro products are also free of harsh sulfates, parabens & sodium chloride and are 100% keratin treatment compliant.
Kate Bosworth always turns heads on the red carpet and we’re not just talking about her killer fashion sense. This #ModayMUSE we’re having a flashback of Kate’s effortless updo in 2010 at the 27th Annual Night of Starts at Cipriani, Wall Street.
But one thing we loved even more then her neon orange Prozena Schouler T-shirt dress, how DIY’able this distressed updo is! Stylist Marshall Lin of the Frédéric Fekkai Salon in New York City, breaks down how he created Kate’s style—and how you can get it at home.
Start with volumizing spray: First, use a lifting hairspray on on half-dry hair
Diffuse and add texture: Blow-dry hair with a diffuser for added volume.Use a classic brush to comb the hair all over to create texture. Fluff with your fingers. Massage the scalp with your fingertips to create more body
Create a low chignon: Make an off-center ponytail at the nape of your neck and wrap up the loose hair in a messy bun, securing it with a few bobby pins.
Loosen up: Once the bun is secure, pull out a few strands framing the face for that subtly untamed look that Lin was going for: “High fashion, but still wearable.”
For Tom Ford’s Spring 2015 show, models walked the runway in shaggy, Joan Jett-inspired wigs and ultra smokey black glossy eye makeup. Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury and hairstyle Sam McKnight joined forces to create a major rock n’ roll look. Though we loved this entire look, we couldn’t help but zone in on the eye makeup. For these gorgeous glossy lids, Tilbury blended two dark cream shadows in black and grayish-khaki. After creating a smudgy affect with the shadows, she then added a coat of lengthening black mascara to the lashes. Before the models stepped onto the runway, Tilbury used her fingers to dab a clear lip gloss onto the lids and just under the eye for a super glossy finish. Lip gloss on your eyelids? Sounds crazy! We tried it and are hooked. If you want to try this look but you’re not fully committed to the lip gloss, Tilbury recommends swiping some Vaseline instead for shine.
This look was all about making a statement when it comes to your eye makeup and boy, did it succeed.
When London Fashion Week kicked off, we were naturally zooming in on the final touches: the nails.
One of our favorites was backstage at Shrimps, top nail artist Michelle Humphries lead the backstage pearl-on-pearl manicure trend. We love the lady-like feminine touch to this look. According to the lead nail artist for the show: The trick is to use a good base coat, buff your nails beforehand, and use a thicker polish to hold in the decorative pearls.
Making an appearance on the runways from Alexander Wang to Carolina Herrera, slick hair is having more than a moment at New York Fashion Week. Take cue straight from the spring 2015 collections and rock that sleek, always chic ponytail. Whether parted down the middle or groomed into a deep side sweep, its perfect for day or night.
When it comes to mastering a highly-gloss, rigorously perfect ponytail, a comb is essential. Celebrity stylists recommend using a mousse starting at the roots to give the hair shape and weight, and go through it with a comb—not a brush—to guide the direction of your hair.
Gwyneth Paltrow is one of our all-time favorite beauty icons. Through the years she has gone through countless style transformations, but one thing that’s remained constant is her perfect hair. This #ModayMUSE we’re having a flashback of Gwyneth’s romantic updo at this years Golden Globes.
To recreate this elegant updo by celebrity hair stylist Adir Abergel,start by separating the hair into a strong middle part. Then, use a round brush to blow dry it straight and create a full beautiful blowout. Once your hair is completely dry, take two sections of hair and create a slight wave with a curling iron, just to give it some bend. Next, pull your hair back into a low ponytail and twist into a deconstructed bun and pin into place.
Not only are eyes the first place to look, its also the delicate skin that shows the aging process first. Identifying your eye issues—puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles, dryness—is easy. Finding an eye cream that will make them disappear? Not so much.
As all of our bodies show sign of aging differently, it’s important to find the right product for your skin.
WRINKLES: A wrinkle, whether on the cheek or around the eyes has the same number-one enemy: retinol. Apply a cream that contains peptides, which like retinol, stimulates collagen production.
DARK CIRCLES: For dark circles go for a formula that has niacinamide to help fade discoloration over time, while its skin-tone hue instantly tones down darkness.
PUFFINESS: For puffiness, an eye cream with skin-tightening caffeine will deflate the puffiness.
DRY SKIN: If the skin under your eyes is dry and thirsty, you need a cream with hyaluronic acid, an ingredient that will flood your skin with moister.
Remember, it’s important to cleanse in the morning to remove residue from the products you apply at night. If you’re worried about drying out your skin, try using a cream or oil cleaner in the morning. Apply a day serum to deliver anti-oxidants like vitamin C, and E. These ingredients will help to fight the free radicals that can age the skin.

“I wanted to create a look that was bold, but still looked soft and natural. I was inspired by the iconic supermodels of the ’90s and the great structure of their brows. I kept the makeup very pure, adding just a touch of natural flush to the lips by mixing two lip products together, and I used a brow pencil to create subtle freckles and a dramatic brow to top the whole look off.”—Gucci Westman, global artistic director for Revlon.
The fresh face has made an appearance yet again at Rag & Bone for the Spring/Summer season. For this effortlessly chic look, Gucci Westman created a fresh, feminine face enhancing natural skin tons by illuminating the cheeks for a look that was all about the glow and shine.
The skin was a dewy look, which called for lots of moisture. To achieve this look, it’s best to moisturize your skin before application of your foundation. If your moisturizer contains light reflecting elements or luminous properties, even better! Then apply your foundation using a large buffing brush (Brush Blender by Glo Minerals is great for this) Take your concealer (1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone) apply it to the centre of the face and under the eyes. Blend with the same buffing brush in a circular motion. Then, take a nude-pink blush; apply to the apples of your cheeks, brushing outwards to the hairline.
Use a chocolate brown liner and brush towards the top of your lash line, smudging it with your finger to blend. Then, apply two coats of the mascara of your choice (we recommend Lashes to Die for by Peter Thomas Roth) Lastly, the brows were “groomed and brushed up, so they felt expensive”
For the lips, a rosy nude, with a slight hint of brown is best. Line the lips, and then fill in with lipstick. Add a bit of gloss to the center of your bottom lip for a bit of shine.
“This look is effortless, aspirational and chic, while still feeling luxurious and cool” says Westman.
For Rodarte’s sea-inspired spring collection, makeup artist James Kaliardos wanted to create a look that was “cool, but not too punk.” And what’s more punk than a whole eyebrow’s worth of piercings? “They’re just cool facial accessories,” Kaliardos said of the silver rings, which were temporarily adhered to models’ eyebrows with glue.
For the rest of the face, he used a luminous cream foundation and pressed powder to give skin a glow appearance. On the eyes, he used a dark pink-brown tone over the lid, pulling the shade around the outer corners in a downward arc. Underneath, he drew a thin line of eyeliner to “lift up the eyes” and lightly dusted a metallic gold shade for a little shimmer.
But the standout, of course, were the brows, which may have inspired a few models to consider making the look a bit more permanent.
