2012 Golden Globes Hottest Hair TrendsThe Golden Globes are nearing, and while some are excited to see which movies and miniseries win, we’re excited to see the celebs, dresses and ‘dos! We talked to Wella Professionals Celebrity Hairstylist Andy LeCompte and Wella Professionals Color Ambassador Aura Friedman about their predictions on what hairstyles will make their way down the red carpet on Sunday night. They’ve had the pleasure of working with Golden Globe stars, including Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Lopez, Fergie, and Megan Fox.
Daily Makeover will host a big giveaway with some of Wella’s amazing styling products that were used to create red carpet hairstyles! To find out the details, “Like” the Wella Professionals USA Facebook page where we’ll announce how and when to enter the contest. Plus, they’ll have LIVE red carpet coverage from top celebrity stylists.
“I think we’ll see a peak in fluid textures that suggest effortless elegance, like very healthy and sleek hair that shows a lot of movement. This style will be popular with soft and light tones with a warm glow that emphasizes healthy, shiny hair representative of the Wella Trend Vision look aptly named, Grace,” says LeCompte. Another great example: Charlize Theron’s shiny, sleek blowout with gentle waves.
To get the look, first, apply a good amount of hair primer, like Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier, to wet hair. This will create an even surface on each hair follicle, improving the evenness of your overall end look. Then, while your hair is still wet, apply a smoothing balm, such as Wella Professionals Flowing Form, to dramatically enhance the manageability and smoothness of your blowout. One you’ve finished blow drying your hair, finish with a spritz of shine spray. Wella Professionals Shimmer Delight helps keep hair healthy and shimmering, despite the heat of a blowout.
Statement-Making Tones And Daring Definition
“A perfect color,” says Aura, “should complement the person who’s wearing it…but also suit their personality and lifestyle. It should enhance, but not overpower.” To keep vibrant hues looking their best, Aura suggests to avoid shampooing too much and use a color-safe shampoo and conditioner, like Wella’s Brilliance Line. If your hair is very dull, she also recommends getting a clear gloss to add instant vibrancy and seal the cuticle of your hair for added shine. As for the style, this look does not shy away from shape or definition. Tight curls and gravity-defying shapes can be expected. With such “atypical” styles being created with styling tools, it’s very important to prepare your hair with a heat protectant spray before styling, such as Wella Professionals Thermal Image Heat Protectant Spray. You’ll need to finish the look with a strong-hold hairspray, such as Wella Professionals Stay Firm Finishing Spray.

Mambo Clothing Launches at Bon-Ton StoresSeveral great things come from Australia including my favorite True Blood star, Ryan Kwanten who also just happens to be the new Brand Ambassador for Aussie brand street and surf wear brand, Mambo. To celebrate the partnership, Mambo and Bon-Ton Stores held an event at Drive-In Studios. “We are very pleased about our partnership with Mambo Graphics. It is especially exciting to be the first retailer in the United States to offer this iconic Australian surfwear/streetwear brand,” commented Bud Bergren, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bon-Ton. “Mambo is one of the top surf and skate brands in the world and will be an exciting addition to our extensive portfolio of exclusive private and national brand offerings. It will offer a vast assortment of fun and artfully-designed products for our young customer.”
The Mambo collection which will surely keep brands like Hollister on its toes, started appearing in stores beginning this fall and includes young men’s, juniors and children’s apparel, as well as accessories and swimwear; prices are estimated to range from a very affordable $18.00 - $50.00. As the Brand Ambassador, the very hot Ryan Kwanten, who is also the face of the brand, was in attendance to play host for the event.
As host, Ryan introduced introduced the night’s entertainment, Brooklyn-based band, the Ill Fits
As a huge fan of True Blood, its always a bit of a shock to hear Ryan Kwanten speak in his native Aussie accent when I’m so used to hearing the deep southern twang of Jason Stackhouse. Anyway, here’s a snippet of the Ill Fits performing one of their songs
Along with the performance, the event had skateboarders working an indoor ramp, a graffiti artist painting a wall and guests were also treated to complimentary tees screen-printed with a few Mambo graphics (I went with the “Love” graphic
