Ashlee Simpson : ‘Pixie’ Clad In Tow !

Ashlee Simpson showed off her new blonde haircut as she left the Ritz in NYC yesterday, where she’s been with her family after arriving in the city with Bronx earlier this week.

Her hubby Pete Wentz is working on music with his band Black Cards and her sister Jessica is working there this week. Ashlee has spoken out about supporting her sister and her man Eric Johnson, whose divorce has just been finalised.

Lindsay Lohan : Back To Her Roots !

Perhaps Lindsay Lohan wanted to wash the past few months right out of her hair.

This morning, the 24-year-old actress stepped out in Los Angeles sporting a brand new strawberry blonde hair do.

And with the star recently saying she ‘wants her career back,’ it’s maybe no surprise that she has returned to the colour which saw her become a star in films like The Parent Trap and Mean Girls.

And Lohan’s blonde hairstyle certainly hasn’t brought her much luck of late.

She was wearing her hair in the lighter shade back in July when she was sentenced to 90 days in prison for violating the terms of her probation for two DUIs.

She then completed 23 days in rehab and was released at the end of last month.

Today her red hair complemented her green studded hoodie, black leggings and black boots as she visited a court house in the Santa Monica area of Los Angeles to undergo a mandatory drug test.

Style Weekly : Two-Toned Hair Locks

From anti-aging haircare to the perfect hair cut, Hollywood divas are always in on the latest ways to have healthy, youthful-looking locks.

And now a hair color effect called ombre is steadily becoming a celebrity and city girl favorite. “Ombre” literally means gradation in French, which refers to the dark-to-light fade of color that is used in the technique. Instead of color that starts at the root, darker roots blend into a lightened mid-shaft and end.

It’s a beachier, more natural looking version of the enduring “visible root” trend.

“I think it speaks to the overall organic and sustainable trend going on right now. No one wants to spend all of their time in the salon anymore, and this look means longer time between visits because it’s so natural-looking. There’s no color line of demarcation at your roots,” says Dimitrios Tsioumas, creative color director of New York and Boston’s Mizu salons, where colorists perform the effect.

The term was taken from the fashion world, where the ombre style of diffusing color is used for fabric, and is most often seen in kimonos.

“In the hair industry, we like to translate what we see in the fashion industry into hair. We’ve seen many designers showcase the ombre effect in their collections. We’re making it more natural and softer to fit into our current lifestyles,” adds Tsioumas.


As we told you last season, starlets like Ashlee Simpson are bucking conventional hair colour for the two-toned effect. The best way to achieve this look, says veteran colourist Douglas Timleck of Salvatore Leonetti Salon in Toronto, is to use a highlighting method called balayage. Instead of the usual foils or cap, “it’s hair painting that starts from the roots or lower down the strands.”


Timleck stresses that if done in a “softer, more natural method, a lot of women can carry off this look well.” Rachel Bilson’s style, for example, shows off subtle gradations on beachy highlights.

This hairstyle “works very well for younger people with a strong sense of themselves and their fashion direction,” say Timleck. Drew Barrymore’s dark crown and peroxide-dipped tips are extremely directional.

We also adore Nicole Richie’s warm iteration, which was created by celeb-fave George Papanikolas of the Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood. Papanikolas first took Richie’s hair several shades darker to a medium light brown, and then used balayage technique to add highlights, starting at her natural center part. Using bleach, he painted golden blonde v-shaped tips on the ends of her hair. Then, to graduate the color, he went through her hair in big horizontal sections, backcombing each one before applying bleach in an arrow shape to the ends of the hair.

Another essential to consider about this style is the use of complementary tones. Leighton Meester’s bleached out waves are blended perfectly into her colour. Timleck says “it’s a must.”

Papanikolas applied a similar regime for Shanae Grimes’ shoulder-length locks. First he gave her balayage highlights to add progressively lighter color to her hair, followed by a round of bleach at the tips to emphasize the contrast.

Lindsay Lohan also loves keeping her ends light and roots darker. Lilo looks super hot in this amazing hair color.

Style Weekly : Fall’s Hottest Hairstyles in 3 Steps or Less!

Sleek Side-Part

Taylor Swift’s pin-straight strands “add an edge without taking away from her dress,” says the singer’s stylist Jemma Muradian. “It’s a smart look that goes well with fall fashion.”

STEP ONE Flip head upside-down and blow-dry hair. Gently rake hands through hair, but keep strands from looking greasy by limiting contact with the roots: “Touching your scalp causes it to release natural oils,” explains Muradian.
STEP TWO Flat iron side-parted locks with one slow movement from roots to ends and spritz with hairspray

Polished Bedhead
Zoe Saldana’s glossy, tousled locks “blend femininity and sexiness, with a slight edginess,” says Tresemme stylist, Mara Roszak, who created this look.

STEP ONE Comb anti-frizz cream through damp hair and blow-dry smooth.
STEP TWO Beginning an inch away from the roots, create loose curls with a medium iron. “Let the strands twist naturally as they wrap around the barrel,” advises Roszak.
STEP THREE Shake hair out with fingers and mist with finishing spray.

High, Textured Bun
“This updo is everything that Vanessa Hudgens is: hip, current, casual and sexy,” says the actress’s stylist Bruce Wayne.

STEP ONE Apply thickening cream to damp hair and blow-dry with a large round brush for volume.
STEP TWO Mist-in shine spray. Pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic.
STEP THREE Gently wrap locks to form a bun and hold the updo in place with hairspray and “as many bobby pins needed to make it feel secure,” says Wayne.


Soft, Bouncy Curls

Katy Perry’s stylist Danilo created “glamorous, yet effortless looking” spirals for the MuchMusic Video Awards.

STEP ONE Mist well-conditioned hair with leave-in conditioner and volumizer before blow-drying.
STEP TWO Side-part hair and set with large rollers. Curl the bangs and crown backwards and wrap the sides under and down. “The direction of the set is key, because it creates the volume and flow of the finished style,” says Danilo.
STEP THREE Once hair cools, work styling cream through the spirals with fingers and spray with texturizer.

Jessica Alba : Cosmopolitan September ‘Stunner’

Jessica Alba strikes a pose on the September 2010 cover of Cosmopolitan, on stands next week. Here’s what the 29-year-old actress opened up about:

On being a bit shaky about her future: “I was always insecure about belonging and felt that my success was probably going to go away, so I’ve overcompensated.”

On first meeting her now-husband Cash Warren: “Right after I met him, I called my best friend and was like, ‘I met this guy and I feel like I’ve known him forever and I’m gonna know him for the rest of my life.”

On depending on her hubby: The romantic stuff comes and goes, but it’s like, does that person have your back? You have to be a team navigating through wherever life may lead you and I want a friend for that.”

Jennifer Lopez : Glamour Magazine September ‘Fierce’

Poured into a sexy leopard-print Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit and curve-hugging black pants, mother-of-two Jennifer Lopez proves she’s still got it on Glamour’s September cover.

With her lips snarling seductively and one hand placed confidently on her hip while the other paws at her ponytail, the catlike 41-year-old embodies the very words she purrs in her interview: “That tiger,” she says of herself, “is still in there.”

Inside the magazine, Lopez further unleashes her animal instinct in a series of sultry poses for photographer Ellen Von Unwerth.

In one, she gives a naughty sideways glance as she enters a room in a cheetah-print Patricia Underwood hat, cheetah-print Rochas coat and bag, and a brown bustier-style Giles dress.

In another, the Bronx native wears her hair in a full lion’s mane, leaning toward a house of cards as if she’s about to pounce in her lacy Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit and full black Prada skirt.

Cheetah-print Christian Louboutin flats rest at her side.

If you think these are the kinds of uber-glam outfits a diva like J.Lo wears as she whips up traditional Puerto Rican dishes for hubby Marc Anthony and chases her 2-year-old twins Max and Emme around the house… well, you wouldn’t be far off.

“I like to maintain a certain sense of fantasy in my life,” Lopez tells Glamour. “I am kind of like that at home. Do I have the full hair and makeup? No. But I might have the nice dress on.”

But getting into that slinky dress does take work, admits Lopez, who found it challenging to lose her pregnancy pounds.

“I did the triathlon six months after the babies were born, and part of that was about giving myself a goal. Maybe it was an emotional thing: Like, that tiger’s still in there,” explains the singer/actress/entrepreneur.

“But it takes a year [after pregnancy]. You’re not going to get slim in six weeks. For me, it’s been back and forth. Now, two years later, I feel really back to normal.”

Yeah, but would she do another triathlon? “I would if I didn’t have to swim in the ocean. That really scared me!” says Lopez. “If it were in a pool, I’d do it again in a minute.”

Rihanna : New Neck Tattoo ‘Rebelle Fleur’ !

riri_rebelle_fleur

Rihanna has gone under the needle again recently to add to her growing collection of body art.

The Rude Boy singer gave up some more space on her neck for the latest tatt, which says “rebelle fleur”.

For those of you who are not multi-lingual like myself – that’s English, French and Scottish of course – the tattoo means rebellious flower.

Rihanna, who is currently riding high in the charts with her collaboration with Eminem, has revealed she has over a dozen inkings on her body.

The 22-year-old has admitted she has an addiction to tattoos and, so far, has 14 (that are visible) dotted around her body.

She once said: “I like hanging out in tattoo shops.

“I am so intrigued by tattoos. It’s an entire culture, and I study it. Sometimes I go with friends, or just by myself. I get bum-rushed, but I don’t care. I don’t take security.”
