Hats are the must have accessory for the fall and winter months, but it is not always so easy to look good in a hat. Here’s the secret: It is all about the hair! Celebrity hairstylist, Philip Pelusi gave Marvelous Girl some tips on how to make your hair look great under the most common hat styles of the season:
Hat Style: Fedora
Hair Style: Contrast the angles of the hat with loose feminine waves.
Why This Works: Loose feminine waves are a great way to wear your hair under a Fedora. This type of hat has very sharp “menswear” angles. This is off-set by the softer hairstyle.
How To Achieve This Look: This type of hair style works best on medium to longer length hair. If hair has a natural wave, simply apply a curl enhancing products like P2® by Philip Pelusi® ReCurl to boost waves and BeachComber to add texture and let hair dry or dry with a diffuser attachment on your blow dyer. If hair is straight, use a big barrel curling iron to add curls, some facing towards and some facing away from the face.
Hat Style: Newsboy cap
Hair Style: Create ballerina-esque bun at the nape of the neck.
Why This Works: Wearing a ballerina-esque bun at the nape is perfect combination with this tomboyish type Newsboy cap look. Also the Newsboy cap is supposed to be worn low on the forehead and this tends to cover most of the entire forehead. Wearing a ballerina bun pulls the hair back off the face opening to face up.
How To Achieve This Look: Part hair in the center and smooth hair back into a low ponytail at the middle of the nape. Use a hair smoothing bore bristle brush and a hair smoothing product like Tela® Beauty Organics Composure. Apply product to the ponytail also and brush smooth. Twist ponytail in one direction and wind around ponytail and secure with a few hair pins. Put on Newsboy and you are ready to go.
Hat Style: Beret
Hair Style: Tuck the hair back into a side pony so that soft strands peek out.
Why This Works: A side swept ponytail is a perfect way to wear your hair under a Beret. A Beret has a French romantic look and this feminine ponytail really compliments that. Tuck the hair back into a side pony so that soft strands peek out.
How To Achieve This Look: This look works best with straight or smooth hair. Create a side part and use a bore bristle paddle brush and a hair smoothing product like Tela® Beauty Organics Encore and brush into a low side ponytail at the nape on the opposite side of the part. Secure ponytail and put on Beret. The back of the Beret should slouch to the opposite side of the ponytail.
Hat Style: Shearling hat
Hair Style: Pull the hair half-way back, then unclip when the hat comes off to get the hair’s bounce back.
Why This Works: Shearling hats are beautiful and warm but they often crush the hair. A hair half-way up look is a great idea to make the hair look great while the hat is on and preserve the hair for when the hat comes off.
How To Achieve This Look: Style hair as usual and then apply a product that can act as a dry hair setting lotion like P2® by Philip Pelusi® Increase. Then divide hair in half from ear to ear and twist up the crown of the head and secure with a clip. This will work as a dry set. Once you take the hat off and remove clip, toss to separate hair and revive hair with a hair refreshing product like as P2® by Philip Pelusi® RefresHair®.
Aging not only occurs in the skin, but also in the hair, eyelashes and eyebrows. Not only can the hair on your head become gray and thin, but aging plays a key factor in slowing down the renewal process of eyelashes – and the last thing a woman needs to worry about is the loss of her flirty lashes.
Both eyelashes and eyebrows may turn gray and become sparse as follicles become dormant and melanin is produced by follicles. These aging factors – in addition to outside aggressors like mascara, eyelash curlers, make-up removers, medications, etc., which all ravage lashes over the years – mean that lashes need an extra boost.
Nutritional supplements, vitamins and other products will not stop the aging of lashes and brows, but an eyelash conditioner that strengthens lashes will help lashes stay on the lid longer, allowing them to grow. Try a product like neuLash eyelash conditioner, which promotes healthy, natural lashes in as little as two weeks. This is a favorite among celebrities because it’s paraben-free and includes essential proteins, peptides, vitamins and moisturizers. It really takes years off your eye area.

neuLash is available for $150 at www.neuLash.com, Saks Fifth Avenue and top spas nationwide.

Even celebrities are re-thinking their tattoos. Actress Megan Fox recent said, “They’re definitely addictive. I don’t have any that I truly regret yet, but I’m sure I will at some point.
She adds, “I’m trying to refrain from going forward for that reason. I don’t want to be 40, looking at my arm in the mirror and going, ‘Oh my God — what did I do?'”
You’ve seen it on Victoria Beckham, Kate Gosselin, Rhianna and many other celebrities. The pixie cut is this summer’s must-have hairstyle. Besides the edgy bob, woman are opting to go a step further with this daringly shorter style.
“This is a great cut because it can be tailored to match any face shape, personality, age and hair texture,” explained hairstylist Penny Doster with Hollywood And Mane salon. “It suits everyone and anyone’s face shape.”
According to Penny, the most common customized areas of the pixie is leaving the hair longer in the back or at the sides of the head. Its upkeep is also simple, with women only needing to apply either a light mouse before blow dry, or a workable pomade after blowdrying.
Tip: To spike/texture your own creative pixie try applying Lanza’s Urban Elements Molding Paste ($13). It provides design support for creating fresh, unique styles.
