Blonde Redheads


A few things worth noting from last night’s MTV Movie Awards: 1) The Twi-Hard phenomenon is far from over (it’s unclear why Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart ever sat down in their seats as the two dominated the night’s list of presenters and winners). 2) Balmain had a big evening (KStu, Leighton Meester, and Mila Kunis all wore dresses from the label). And 3) Two of young Hollywood’s most notable recent dye jobs are slowly edging back to their roots. We are of course talking about Emma Stone, whose platinum hair, which she dyed for her upcoming role in Spiderman, is now a light ginger—almost as dark as the true red that we first fell in love with when she started nabbing lead roles—and Blake Lively, whose rose gold gloss from the Met Gala has eased its way back to her signature golden blonde, as anyone who saw those, um, personal photos of the Gossip Girl star that circulated on the Internet last week is already well aware. Who do you think came out on top?

Lancôme Gets Emma Watson; Emma Stone Gets Curly; And More…


Lancôme is officially stacking its celebrity spokesperson deck. As if scoring Julia Roberts last year wasn’t a big enough coup, the French beauty giant has just announced that Emma Watson is joining Kate Winslet and Penélope Cruz as the newest face of the brand. [WWD]

In the newest issue of O magazine, Oprah dedicates a whole feature to her longtime hairstylist Andre Walker, who dishes about coiffing the talk show hostess-with-the-mostess for the last 25-plus years. Walker goes into detail about “the styles that weren’t so great” (read: the bigger eighties-era poufs) and his tips for keeping Winfrey’s hair TV camera-ready, including, “Condition. Condition. Condition. Whether you think you need it or not, use a conditioner every time you shampoo, and slather on a thick hair mask once a week.” [People StyleWatch]

Emma Stone was snapped with light, strawberry blond curls in L.A. this weekend—a far cry from the sleek platinum strands she sported front-row at Louis Vuitton last week. Yes, the color was for her new movie, The Help, but we’re hoping it will serve as a reminder of how good she looked as a ginger. [Just Jared]

Diet Pepsi debuted its new “skinny” can during NYFW to a considerable amount of criticism, so it should come as no surprise that its allegedly retouched ad campaign starring an equally slimmed-down Sofia Vergara is generating a similar clamor. [Daily Mail]

Emma Stone: Blonde Redhead; Michelle Williams Bulks Up; And More…


Emma Stone, natural blonde? True story. The redheaded Easy A star has gone back to her, ahem, roots for her new role in the next Spider-Man movie. [NYND]

As if Bruce Springsteen paying tribute to your hit single isn’t cool enough, it was just announced that 10-year-old Willow Smith will whip her hair at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. With La Roux front woman and wispy pompadour-packing Elly Jackson also on the roster, there promises to be plenty of fur-a-flying. [People]

She may be sporting a svelte bod and an enviable platinum blond pixie cut now, but for her new movie, Blue Valentine, Michelle Williams reportedly gained 15 pounds by eating coconut milk ice cream and avocado sandwiches. If you were looking for a way to put on that winter weight like a celebrity, there ya go. [Daily Mail]

Hermione Who?


Without a doubt, cutting her hair into a pixie was the best beauty move Emma Watson ever made. And at a Warner Brothers event in London last night, the Harry Potter star proved that she’s not done with the wowing yet. Sporting her short hair in a winter shade of light brown, Watson worked darkened brushed-up, impeccably shaped brows and a wine-stained lip for one of the more stunning red-carpet turns we’ve seen in a while. That super sixties mascara application on both the upper and lower lash line is also a total winner. Hermione Granger is officially dead to us. What do you think of Watson’s ultra-chic look?

Talking Fall Hair Color With Redken’s Tracey Cunningham


With November just a week away, Fall has hit its stride, which means a couple of things: First, you’re likely coming to the end of your seasonal-transition skin issues (rejoice!) and, two, you’re probably considering a hair color change now that those summer sun streaks seem incongruous with the cooler temperatures. “I warm my clients’ shades up in the fall,” Tracey Cunningham told us. As Redken’s creative consultant for color and one half of Beverly Hills’ celeb-friendly salon Byron + Tracey, Cunningham knows a thing or two about color changes (she tends to the tresses of Kate Bosworth, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Jessica Biel on the regular). Here, the coiffing star talks deep mahogany and brilliant copper-red hues and name-drops the Victoria’s Secret Angel who currently boasts the most requested hair color in L.A.


So, why warmer for winter?

It’s funny how clients embrace the winter. You’d think that we’ve trained them to think that they need to go darker! But people just really want to do that. They really want to cozy up.

Break it down for us; how are you instructing your clients—be they brunette, red, or blonde?

For my brunette clients, I plan to keep their base a dark chocolate truffle hue with thick golden highlights starting from the mid-section of their hair; for redheads, I lean towards a single-process tone with no highlights, just vibrant deep mahogany tones; and blond locks will be light and golden—a California blonde with the base a shade darker to give some dimension to the look. Think Kate Bosworth for this blond shade, it pops on her and looks great with a red lip. Sometimes just doing a gloss will work—it will warm up your highlights to a caramel tone—or with solid color, it would just make it more rich.

Whoa—Kate Bosworth has been really blonde recently. Will that really work on everyone?

Well, Kate is naturally really blonde. People always ask, “What’s the perfect blond?” and it’s really whatever looks good with your skin tone. Like…Cameron Diaz can tan.
