GET THE LOOK: On Saturday, January 23, 2010 at the Shrine Auditorium in LA, Hollywood honored its own top talent at the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries, for her role in Georgia O’Keefe, Joan Allen sparkled and shone on the red carpet. Sebastian Stylist Design Team member Thomas Dunkin crafted the actress’ soft, cascading waves that gracefully grazed her shoulders and complemented her overall look.
To recreate this A-list style at home, Thomas shares these step-by-step instructions:
1. To begin, apply Sebastian Professional Taming Elixir to slightly damp hair
2. Blow-dry hair straight to give the hair a smooth, even base to work on and part slightly to the left of center
3. Once dry, use a ¾-inch curling iron to wave the hair by starting at the nape and taking 2-inch sections of hair and leaving them loose to drop slightly
I’m excite to share with you my interview with Avon Global Stylist Advisor Tippi Shorter.
In 1995 Tippi headed from home town, Long Beach, California to New York City, and within a year of her move she was asked to participate in a beauty feature for Essence magazine. Tippi opened Luxe Studio in Soho, but sold the successful salon after four years to pursue other career opportunities such as styling for photo shoots, music videos and commercials. Tippi is known for taming the tresses of A-list actresses, musicians, and supermodels including Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Vanessa Williams, to name a few! And while her beauty masterpieces are seen on the covers and editorial pages of In Style and Vanity Fair, Tippi remains modest and humble saying “I am not a celebrity hairstylist. I am a hairstylist who happens to have the opportunity to work with many wonderful celebrities.”
