Marvelous Girl Has Moved!

Kate Gosselin is sporting a new do thanks to celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson.  In fact, it took Gibson 20 hours to give Kate hair extensions!

Kate, who jokes that her new nickname is “Kate Clean-Slate,” tells People magazine, “I’m starting over. It’s good to have hair again. I never thought I’d have short hair for as long as I did. I feel like this is a fresh start, a fresh me, a fresh life. I’m rebuilding. There’s no option for this not to be a good year. Now I get to start over with a new self and new goals.”

Kate Hudson recently attended the premiere of the movie NINE, and her hair was bangin’.   Celebrity hairdresser, David Babaii, told Marvelous Girl just how he tamed Kate’s beautiful mane:

I prepared Kate’s wet hair by massaging a dime size amount of my David Babaii for WildAid Hair Polish into her hair. For greater control, I parted her hair into 4 sections (both sides and crown leaving the nape area free). This helps achieve the perfect blow dry.

I dried each section straight, giving the ends a soft rounded finish with my David Babaii for WildAid Blow Dryer. For added lift and volume, I sprayed some David Babaii for WildAid Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier.

To finish, I french braided her shorter layers to sweep hair back and away from her face. For hold, I used my Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray. It’s like oxygen for the hair! It doesn’t weigh your style down or make it feel tacky. At the end of the night, Kate’s look was completely fresh without any product build up.

Surprisingly inexpensive choices for the Kardashian girls.  Kim must be saving up for that $20 million engagement she’s rumored to be eyeing.

wavy summer hair how toThis summer, splash into the latest hair trend: mermaid-like waves.  This glamorous yet laid-back style is perfect for all summer occasions and a great look for both you and your daughter.  Because young or old, who hasn’t wanted to be a mermaid?

Suki Duggan, owner of the Donsuki Townhouse Salon on Upper East Side Manhattan, shares her tips on how to create this great mother, daughter look.  Suki suggests:

– Section hair into 1-2 inch pieces
– Rolling each section and pinning as you go. 
– After the rollers have cooled, run a comb through your hair to get large, soft waves.  A spritz of hairspray should hold the style for the day.

Such a classic, feminine style!
