Does the Hair Make the Woman?

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : Celebrities 


Sienna Miller has been boho royalty since she made her grand entrance on the public stage during her first romance with Jude Law. In addition to her fringe-with-everything mentality and a collection of summer music festival-friendly vintage sunglasses, it was her long, flaxen hair that earned her the neo-hippie cred—always middle-parted and always with a slight natural wave. Fast-forward a couple years to “nanny gate,” and a wispy breakup bob defined her single-and-loving-it appearance....

SJP's Sexy SATC Premiere Hair

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : Celebrities 


satc_2_main.jpgThere are some things that get better with time, and Sarah Jessica Parker's hair is definitely one of them. Just check out her look at last Monday night's New York City SATC 2 premiere: I'm not only loving her new buttery blonde color with it's bleached-out ends, darker crown, and haphazard highlights—I'm dying to appropriate her perfectly undone waves. They reminded me of some tricks I learned from celeb hairstylist Luigi Murenu, who famously softened Madonna's image with Botticelli waves ...

The "Pob"

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

Victoria Beckham has seen her fair share of hair transformations over the years—including, but not limited to, her super-straight Spice Girls middle-part moment and her much lauded pixie-cut phase. But the pop star-cum-designer’s most memorable coiffing expedition would have to be the bob—which she made her own with super-sleek asymmetry in brunette and blond incarnations back in 2007, thus earning the oft-replicated style its own moniker, the “pob.” After dabbling in some extended ...

Busty Barbie Causes Stir

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : News 


Barbie dolls have long been criticized for their unrealistic proportions. Now Mattel, the toys’ maker, has come under fire yet again for its new Back to Basics collection, which features a particularly well-endowed doll infamously being called “Busty Barbie.” Why all the outrage, we say?

Tom Ford, The Make-up Artist?

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : News 

tomfordlipsticks_main.jpgThe designer-turned-perfumer-turned-movie director can now add "makeup artist" to his resumé, as his Private Blend Lip Color Collection, a line of 12 lipsticks, debuts at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue on June 1. Each tube is $45, which isn't cheap by any lipstick standard, but here's why I love them: These little babies are pigment-rich, so a little goes a long way. There's an array of pretty, flattering reds, nudes, and pinks. They're semi-matte, but feel creamy going on and don't dry...

Make-up for Glasses Wearers

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, May 24, 2010, In : Tips 


Glasses and makeup altogether tends to be a bit of a tricky topic. I don't have the perfect 20/20 vision but my eyes only need some help when reading small-script texts. As for those who need to where glasses and even for contact lens wearers (you girls still need to give your eyes a rest from those miracle lenses!), glasses can either make your eyes look bigger or smaller, depending on your lens. For example, those who are near-sighted have glass lenses that tend to make their eyes look smal...

Summer-Proof Your Make-up

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : Tips 
summerproof_main.jpgMakeup is meant for your face—but keeping it there gets a lot harder once summer hits. Here are some helpful tips on how to stop the stuff from melting into your Pimms cup when the mercury rises.
 
Prime.
 Primers are lightweight, so you won't feel the extra layer on your skin, but you will notice that your base and blush last much longer. After you've washed and moisturized your face, smooth on a pea-size drop of oil-free makeup primer (such as Laura Mercier Oil-free Foundation Primer). [Avai...

Leighton Meester Lightens Up

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : Celebrities 

As Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf, Leighton Meester is a bad-girl brunette. But as international ambassador for Herbal Essences, the actress/singer is playing a new role: dirty blonde. Meester, whose hair is naturally flaxen, dyes it for the hit CW series, but at a photo call to fête her new spokesperson deal in Madrid, she was looking decidedly less devious sporting a honey-colored side part and loose waves. What say you: better off dark and brooding, or is blonder the better course? Persona...

The Side Braid

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

It was the near-official style of spring, and given the way the side braid keeps showing up at events, I'm going to bet that it keeps on keepin’ on for summer, too. The latest spokesperson to rep the slung-over-the-shoulder plait is one Sessilee Lopez, who took a low-lying version of the look for a spin at the 2010 Operation Smile Annual Gala last week in New York. I'm still not sure how we feel about the casual coif turning into acceptable cocktail-hour fare, thanks to Spring runway shows ...
