Vote For Marta’s Hair Color: Blonde or Brunette

The other day I met a very nice lady who saw my Drivers Licence photo where I have brown hair. She then insisted that I look so much better with brown hair. She mentioned the words “rich”, “suits your features”, “dramatic”, and “elegant”.

I have two photos of me (below): One with brown hair and one in blonde highlights.

What do you think: Should Marta go brunette or stay blonde?

Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One & Scarlett Johansson

Dolce & Gabbana will launch Rose The One, a new rose-centered flanker to 2006’s Dolce & Gabbana The One fragrance for women. It follows L’Eau The One, released earlier this year. The notes include blackcurrant, pink grapefruit, mandarin, lily of the valley, rose, litchi, peony, Madonna lily, ambrette seed, sandalwood, musk and vanilla. Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One will be available in 30, 50 and 75 ml Eau de Parfum.

Scarlett Johansson graces the Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One ads sporting a very big curly hair. I normally don’t fall for big hair curly hairdos, but I must say, I’m a bit tempted to try this hairstyle at home, lol. I love the middle part as well. I’m all about it! Ohhh Scarlett, you make everything look so good!

BTW-Dolce & Gabbana The One is my favorite perfume ever. It is now becoming Marta’s signature fragrance. Seriously, everywhere I go people always ask me what perfume I’m wearing. Must be my clue:)

How To Get Kirsten Dunst’s Hairstyle at the 2009 CFDA Fashion Awards

The other day Pantene Nature Fusion Smoothing Creme from Pantene’s Smooth Vitality hair care line saved my hair. I was swimming a lot lately and spent some time in the sun with my guests from England.  All which took a toll on my hair. I needed to add back moisture and silkiness to my hair. Right after I washed my hair and towel dried it. I applied a small amount of Pantene’s smoothing creme on the the ends and very lightly on the top part of my hair. Remember: Do not apply on roots. Conditioners tend to weigh down hair if applied roots. I then blow dried my hair like usual. I could finally brush my hair with my fingers for the first time, in weeks:)

I attended the Pantene special meeting with Hallie Bowman, Pantene’s Expert Celebrity Stylist, last week watching her transform everyday women into red carpet divas in minutes just using Pantene products. Think about it,  Hallie styled many celebrities, such as: Liv Tyler, Kristen Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Keri Russell. So if Pantene is good enough for these celebs then probably it’s good enough for you.

Hallie’s philosophy on hair: You don’t have to spend million bucks to look like million bucks. Invest in high quality styling tools and save your money on styling and hair care products.

How to Get Amy Adams Hairstyle From the “Julie & Julia” Premieres

Matrix celebrity stylist Mark Townsend created Amy Adams’ beautiful red carpet hairstyles for both the Los Angeles screening and New York premiere of “Julie & Julia.”

For the New York premiere of “Julie & Julia,” Matrix celebrity hairdresser, Mark Townsend, wanted Amy’s hair to be modern and glamorous to match her Carolina Herrera gown. “I’ve been very inspired lately by hairstyles from the 80s with lots of volume,” said Townsend.


Mark started by spraying Biolage volumatherapie Bodifying Spray Gel into Amy’s damp hair…

…and blow dried it with a medium size Spornette Mixed Bristle round brush to get a good deal of volume in her hair. Next, he set her hair with hot rollers, making sure to wrap the hair around the roller from roots to ends to give it a nice wave. Once the hair was cool, he removed the rollers and brushed out her hair with a flat brush, parting it to the side. To add some texture and shine, he sprayed Biolage Shine Endure Spritz into her hair and gave it a scrunch.
