For Mara Roszak, hair is a family affair. The sunny blond, California-born and -based stylist who boasts both a formidable client roster—including Emma Stone, Kate Mara, and Michelle Dockery (the latter two she styled for the Emmys last night)—and a coveted L’Oréal Paris contract (she is their consulting celebrity hairstylist) happens to be in the biz alongside her husband, fellow hair whisperer Alex Polillo. The couple share a similar hair sensibility and aesthetic which they hope to eventually channel into a future shared creative working space. Here, Roszak takes a break from styling oh-so-very-famous tresses to share some of her favorite style spots and beauty products.
THE SKINCARE ESSENTIALS: iS Clinical and Shani Darden
“IS Clinical is the first skincare line that doesn’t irritate my skin; every product I’ve tried has been wonderful. I use their Cleansing Complex face wash, Pro-Heal vitamin C serum, and Active serum, which is basically magic in a bottle. My facialist Shani Darden literally changed my skin and turned me on to these wonderful products.”
THE HOME GOODS GO-TO: Nickey Kehoe and Santa Maria Novella
“For the home, I love Nickey Kehoe. [Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe] are incredible interior designers with impeccable taste who opened their own store. It has a lot of great vintage furniture pieces and rugs, including an amazing assortment of tchotchkes—from pottery to candles—that make great gifts. And Santa Maria Novella, which has a store on Melrose Place, makes my favorite potpourri. The smell warms up a room and is a great alternative to candles…I’m constantly panicking I forgot to blow them out anyway.”
THE QUICKIE MASSAGE SPOT: Pho-Siam
“For a last-minute massage, I go to Pho-Siam. It’s the best Thai massage on the East Side and is great for spur-of-the-moment relaxation any time of day.”
THE LOCAL OUTFITTER: Mohawk General
“I love shopping at Mohawk General Store. There are stores in Pasadena and Silver Lake and they carry a great medium- to high-end mix, from local L.A. designers to Dries Van Noten. They also have an amazing shoe selection and beautiful home items.”
THE REFUELING STATION: Beverly Hills Juice
“For juice I am addicted to Beverly Hills Juice. They are the originators of juice press and have been in the same location since the 1970s. It’s a tiny hole-in-the-wall store selling only in-season juice and smoothies. The Banana Manna is my go-to smoothie—it’s made with smashed-up, frozen bananas and almonds at the base, and blended with your choice of juice. And my days are just better when I start my morning with a Green Genie.”
THE HAIR TRANSFORMER: L’Oréal Paris
“For hair there’s nothing like L’Oréal Paris OleoTherapy Sulfate-Free Deep Recovery Mask for a weekly treatment. The number one concern women have with their hair is dryness, which not only doesn’t look great, but makes hair almost impossible to style. This mask will save your hair! I use it at least once a week and apply a shower cap while in the shower, allowing it to penetrate deeper from the steam for at least five minutes.”
“My husband and I are traveling this summer to Italy for the first time for vacation. We’re flying into Venice, then driving five-plus hours through Italy to stay at Hotel Il Pellicano in Porto Ercole, which is a dream come true. I’ve heard the spa is incredible and uses all Santa Maria Novella products, which I adore. And Big Sur is absolutely next on my list of places to travel to when I have a few days off. I can’t believe that I grew up in California and still have never been there! I have a strong feeling that once I go I may never want to come back.”
THE MAKEUP MUST: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
“My makeup artist friend recently turned me on to NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, which is truly magic. I’ve gone out and purchased more so I never run out…I can’t imagine a day without it. It isn’t dry and has great coverage. On mornings when I have no time to get ready, I’ll tap it on a few [strategic] places, blend it in with a brush, and that’s it.”
THE ACCESSORIZER: Broken English
“For jewelry, my friend Laura Freedman owns a store in the Brentwood Country Mart called Broken English. She has such an amazing eye for unique, beautiful pieces with a mix of vintage and new. I always go there when I need something special.”
And the bride wore bangs. OK, so we haven’t exactly confirmed that fact, as it’s hard to tell from the aerial shots of Behati Prinsloo’s recent nuptials to Adam Levine in Los Cabos, Mexico, but judging by these images from Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, going for a pre-wedding chop might not have been a bad idea. Her covetable set of long (and likely faux) bangs channeled the style of both the Pre-Fall pieces in the story and a seventies Stevie Nicks (who is rumored to have performed at the reception, along with Prinsloo, who took to the mic to serenade her new husband). If the recent wave of models and celebs with bangs (Joan Smalls, Karen Elson, Jessica Chastain, and Emma Stone) foretell anything about the next big beauty trend, freshening up for fall is as easy as snipping a sophisticated set of eyebrow-grazing fringe.
If you thought bangs already had their moment, you may want to reconsider. Not only have cool girls like Joan Smalls and Karen Elson recently sported fresh sets of fringe, but Emma Stone’s long, eye-grazing bangs spotted at last night’s New York premiere of Magic in the Moonlight have us tempted to break out the scissors—stat. In a floral Dolce & Gabbana gown, she epitomized seventies bohemian glamour. But even if you’re not ready to opt for a chop, you can re-create Stone’s polished, bouncy waves at home. Hair pro Mara Roszak began by applying L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray to the roots for volume, then blow-dried strands with a round brush. While Stone’s hair was still hot, Roszak wrapped sections in velcro rollers for ten minutes to set the curl. Then she sprayed a veil of L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold before removing the rollers and touching up the ends with a 1 1/2″ curling iron. Finally, a spritz of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and a good scrunch gave Stone’s look an effortless finish.
Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Isabel Lucas’ underliner and Emma Roberts’ soft waves). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Camilla Belle; Carolina Herera Celebrates Her Archive Collection; Beverly Hills, CA
While there was nary a bold lip in sight on the Fall ’14 runways (with the exception of Rihanna in the front row), the celeb set is still feeling a statement pout. Camilla Belle opted for an icy pastel hue, similar to the shades spotted at Prabal Gurung’s Spring ’14 show.
Emma Roberts; Palo Alto Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival; New York, NY
We caught up with Roberts earlier this week to check out her pre-gala beauty routine. Last night, she wowed us again with super-sleek strands and a classic crimson mouth.
Emmy Rossum; Carolina Herera Celebrates Her Archive Collection; Beverly Hills, CA
Rossum always nails it with new beauty trends, but we love this ultra-feminine look. You just can’t go wrong with girly pink lips and a glossy blow-out.
Emma Stone; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Premiere; New York, NY
We’re quickly becoming lip gloss converts. Stones’ strawberry pout looked fresh (not sticky) with a slightly-smoky eye.
Solange Knowles; Q&Q Launch Event; New York, NY
We love an unexpected color combo: Knowles expertly teamed her lemon-yellow Christopher Kane sweatshirt and skirt with bright fuschia lips. (Get the look with Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour in La Diva.)
Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Solange Knowles’ tangerine eyeliner and Lupita N’yongo’s graphic wing). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Camilla Belle; Jimmy Choo’s Choo.08 Party; Beverly Hills, CA
When you’re wearing prim neutrals, add a loud mouth to keep things youthful. Belle opted for MAC’s nearly-neon Retro Matte lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous.
Chanel Iman; Spotify Brunch at the Soho Desert House; La Quinta, CA
You know we love a good dye job. Chanel Iman rocked the trend at Coachella with rainbow streaks of pink and teal.
Kate Bosworth; Alexander Wang x H&M Party; Indio, CA
Coachella veteran Kate Bosworth knows how to beat the heat in style. Laid-back waves and flushed cheeks (à la Stella McCartney FW14) looked effortless and fresh.
Jourdan Dunn; StyleCaster + UGG Coachella Party; Villa Sereno, CA
Blue eyeliner typically conjures up bad prom photos from the eighties. But Jourdan Dunn’s take—worn on the lower lash line with bare skin—looks as cool as her snow cone (and conjures up memories of Chanel’s most recent Resort show).
Emma Stone; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Premiere; Berlin, Germany
This Amazing Spider-Man 2 star has been sporting some winning beauty looks as of late. Bouncy, flapper-inspired curls and a wash of pale blue eyeshadow played off her Chanel dress.
