Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Renato Campora Created An Iconic 1940’s Look for Katy Petty at the Video Music Awards in LA
It seems like we always feature Katy for the awards, but that’s because she’s always got a look worth talking about! This time around, Fekkai’s Celebrity stylist Renato Campora created the look for her pink tresses and shares how to get that look with Solessence readers:
1) Create a side part on wet hair.
2) Apply Fekkai Full Blown Mousse throughout the hair to build a strong and reliable base
3) Blow dry using a round brush.
4) Use Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairpsray to secure the look, adding a lasting finish and shine.
To create the final touch, Renato took a one-inch strand of the hair and pinned it back with a vintage hairpiece, securing it with a bobby pin.
All products by Fekkai: Fekkai Full Volume Mousse ($21), and Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($24).Available at Fekkai.com and Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.
She had some amazing custom Minx nails by Kimmie Keyes.
Adele chose a look very similar to Shellac Cocoa in the hottest shape right now. Stunning.
I did a similar look a few months back for the Royal Wedding and it is one of my absolute favorite to wear. This was the second version I brought down to almonds (shorter versions). Simple, elegant, classic.
Well there’s no hiding this one. Bey-Bey showed up at the awards with baby! She looks stunning as usual. Nails by Tom Bachik. Tom shared he’s using a new color called “The G” from his Artistic’s Colour Gloss upcoming Holiday Collection.
Hi Everyone, I know you’ve been patiently waiting for Shellac swatches and I want to say Thank You. I have been swamped at work but started them thanks to a little help from friends (Hi Ingrid!). Look for back on this post in the next few days. In the meantime, here is a bit of a teaser:
Studio White: This soft white makes for the most natural French ever! It is also very easy to work with compared to Cream Puff. I just got it in and have done 5 french so far. Very pretty.
Zillionaire (over pinky nail): glitter with red, blue and gold flecks.
Asphalt: Just like the CND Asphalt polish. I recommend stocking up on retail if you are a nail tech, because your clients can buy a bottle for toes or for extending wear. This is a hothothot color for fall/winter!
Hotski to Tschoske*: Oy, I think I spelled that wrong. But it is a very bright teal. *hotski to tchotchke
Moonlight & Roses: This is like Beau on steroids. Same white frost bits but with red/pink sheen. It really makes a glow to the nails and looks fab with studio white (see above too).
Purple Purple: Photographed blue here, but a gorgeous dark purple. I liked it much more than I thought I would.
Check back for swatches.
First Asphalt! 8/24
There are changes to the packaging front & one side this fall 2011.
FRONT CND SHELLAC
I always tell my clients that the term Shellac is now used for a 2 week manicure in the way Kleenex is to tissues or Xerox is to copying. It’s treated as a catchall! If it isn’t CND, it isn’t the patent pending Shellac. Looky what’s on the cover of the boxes now!
The miniscule color identifier is on the bottom of the front. The sales clerk and I didn’t realize it was there.
SIDE CND SHELLAC
The other change is to the side of the box. They’ve removed the fantastic large print stating the color. It was so easy to confirm you had picked up the right color, and it was probably easier to stock. Life goes on.
