Amy's Top Oscar Picks For 2012

Amy Kott Hovland, Owner of Von Anthony Salon, Frisco shares her favorite looks from the 2012 Oscars.

I hands down pick Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford. That structured dress with a low pony perfect make up and that cuff on her wrist was a jaw dropping look.

I also loved Viola Davis is that form fitting green gown from Vera Wang.
With her short hair shape worn in its natural state. Breathtaking Beautiful.

Rooney Mara hair great hair a bold lip in Givenchy with No Accessories!! I know not everyone would like this but I could have looked at her all night!

I loved Michelle Williams with her cropped blonde hair in a very pretty corally red tulle Louis Vuitton gown.

Milla Jovovich had a beautiful up- do.

George Clooney was easy on the eyes as always. Men and women always love his hair.

How To Get a "Gelled" Look Without The Crunch

Hair Tip for a “wet” or “gelled” look without the crunch.

  • Apply Extreme Urushi by Shu Uemura to wet hair and comb through
  • Blow dry the hair in the direction you'd like the style to go
  • Thoroughly emulsify Frame Wax in your hands and apply to the dry hair in the style you desire
  • Follow up with a blow drier after the application of the Frame Wax to get an extremely shiny, textured finish with workable control.

How Hairdreams Transformed My Hair

Von Anthony Salon is your North Texas provider of Hair Dreams hair extensions.

We recently came across a wonderful article about how Hair Dream's transformed one woman's hair.

From the article:
  • Last week, I came to the disheartening realization that my boyfriend had better hair than me. Yes, really.
  • After years and years of processing and a recent dye job that left my hair brittle and damaged, my mane is not looking too great.
  • Only absolutely healthy, thoroughly tested hair passes the stringent Hairdreams’ quality control.
  • After a thorough consultation with one of their stylists, Hairdreams matched my hair and chose the length (I choose 18”!) that my hair was about to be.
  • The entire process literally took three hours and it was completely painless.
  • When my stylist was done and I looked in the mirror, I was literally in shock–my hair looked AMAZING! My dry and damaged locks were now long, glamorous, and healthy looking!
  • I was proud to show it off and loving my new-found confidence.
  • Oh, and the day after, I headed to a friend’s Super Bowl party with a slicked back pony tail and NO obvious signs of extensions.
  • Oh, and in case you were wondering, I now have the better hair in the relationship (wink!). Thank you Hairdreams for making my hair beautiful again!
