Gugu Mbatha Raw: Beyond the Lights NYC Premiere

Tonight was an amazing time working with up and coming actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw. I worked on all of the press for Belle earlier this year and if you haven’t seen the movie, PICK IT UP, STAT!!! You will be moved by her performance and you will not be the same after.

I was thinking 20s/50s when I looked at the dress. I know, I know that doesn’t make sense but I am a beauty guru who likes to mix up decades. Those two decades are some of my favorites. I wanted her to look like a movie star and yes I did just that! Hair hair hair. I wanted to do something different for her. Movie star sexy hot and modern.

Gugu has very curly natural hair. On damp hair I used several products to give the ultimate blowout and smoothness to her hair. On damp hair I first used Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel for smoothness, shine and heat protection. I then smoothed Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice from mid lengths to ends for added volume.

Ariana Grande For Marie Claire’s October Issue

This is the second time that I’ve had the opportunity to work with Ariana – 2 covers in 1 year with THE IT girl of music! I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity! The thing about Ariana is that she loves the 60s, and when I think about that time period I think about many icons — from Raquel Welch to Jane Fonda to Brigit Bardot.

I used Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel; Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice; Leanor Greyl Laque Souple to create this look. Here are the steps:

1) I started off with a really good blow dry using Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel for smoothness, shine and to protect Ariana’s hair from heat at the roots.
2) I then smoothed Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice from mid lengths to ends for added volume.
3) I blew her hair dry with a flat Mason Pearson brush to create more smoothness and even more shine.
4) After the blow-dry, I flat ironed her hair taking 1 ½ inch sections.
5) Next I sectioned her hair from the top of the ear to the other to create her signature half up, half down top ponytail. I pulled everything to the crown of her head and using bungee elastic I secured the ponytail.
6) I then finished with Leanor Greyl Laque Souple on her ends to give texture and movement.

What do you think?

Katharine McPhee For The Late Show

Wow how fun to work with an actress who was famous from American Idol. It’s so great to see how she came on the scene as a songbird and has created an amazing career as an actress.

Katharine McPhee is so much fun. Tousled sexy hair is what I like to create on her. I started off with freshly shampooed and conditioned hair. Using a medium sized round brush with a mixture of  3 different products in her hair. At the root I used a volumizing hair product from Kerastase called Volumnique, on the mid shaft and ends I used L’Oreal professional Volume Expand spray then on top of that I used Leonor Greyl mousse. I rough dried the hair with my fingers then used my dual bristle round brush.

The trick for great texture and volume is a technique that we do in my salon in NYC and Ft Lauderdale? You take 2-inch sections blowdrying  from the root when you get the hair dry, you turn the brush around and around to make a textured curl. Do this on the entire head them turn you hair upside down a spray with Elnett hairspray.

Remember, Beauty Is Individual.

If you want more lasting wave us a 1 inch curling iron in different movements. Spray with my hairspray and you are red for your own red carpet.
