Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting at the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

Celebrity hairstylist Christine Symonds worked with Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting for the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday, January 25th in Los Angeles, CA.  See below for details on Kaley’s effortless look.

BEAUTY INSPIRATION:

“We decided on a clean and simple look for Kaley tonight.”

GET THE LOOK:

“I prepped her hair with Oribe Grandiose Mousse and blow dried it forward using my Eco Tools Quick Volume Styler.  I kept a strong side part and directed the bangs off to one side.

I sprayed Batiste Dry Shampoo in the roots to keep the hair in place and to add a little lift.  I finished with a vail of Oribe Superfine Hairspray.”

GET THE LOOK: Camilla Alves at the 2015 #SAGAwards

For the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards, Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen gave Camilla Alves a neutral glowy look.

Here’s how to get Camilla’s look:

1. Lauren applied Koh Gen Doh Foundation Aqua Foundation to her face before adding Avon Glow Bronzing Powder.

2. Lauren then blended the two darker shades in the Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte for depth.

3. Next, she used Avon Big & Daring Mascara in Blackest Black to define the eye.

4. To complete the look, Lauren applied Hourglass Lipstick in Whisper to Camilla’s lips.

Sarah Hyland’s Edgy Up-Do: How to Get Her Look #SAGAwards #HairTutorial

sarah-hyland-hair-sagawards

Sarah Hyland’s up-do at the 2015 SAG Awards was created by celebrity hairstylist, Ryan Richman, who used KMS California products to create the edgy bun.

Here are Ryan’s tips on how to copy Sarah’s hairstyle.

1. Prep wet hair with KMS California FREESHAPE quick blow dry spray ($20.99) to lightly condition the hair and reduce drying time.

2. Apply a few pumps of KMS California TAMEFRIZZ smoothing lotion ($18.50) to smooth the cuticle and reduce frizz while drying.

3. Use a comb to distribute the product throughout the hair and set a deep side part.

4. Blow dry 1″ sections using a flat boar bristle brush while pointing the nozzle of the blow dryer downward towards the ends of the hair.

5. When the hair is dry, smooth small sections of hair with a straightening iron.

6. On the side of the part with less hair, use a brush to create a high ponytail and secure this section with an elastic.

7. Spray KMS California FREESHAPE 2-in-1 styling + finishing spray ($20.99) as you brush in order to keep the section smooth and secure.

8. Repeat these steps with the remaining hair and secure it in a low ponytail.

9. Wave and twist the two ponytails together and begin to pin the look down to the back of head using bobby pins.

10. Finish the look with KMS California FREESHAPE 2-in-1 styling + finishing spray ($20.99).

#NailMail: Sally Hansen Matte Nude Manicure

sally-hansen-matte-top-coat

During Paris Fashion Week, Sally Hansen’s Global Color Ambassador Madeline Poole created a coolly minimalist, nude manicure with a twist by giving flesh toned polish a matte finish. Madeline paired Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat with Complete Salon Manicure in Almost Almond, a flattering nude shade which gave the glossy manicure a chic velvety matte look.

“The idea for the matte nude nail came from referencing the true sheen of a natural nail,” says Madeline Poole.  “As an unpainted nail is generally more satin or matte in finish, we were mimicking this surface. In the end, the result is dusty and bare like the cheek of a porcelain doll.”
