How To: Modern, Fluffy Faux Bob

As seen in Teen Vogue, here's how to get this look for mid-length to long hair which is folded into a bob.

Step 1: Prep hair with Kérastase Nectar Thermique to protect it against heat-styling tools.

Step 2: Work Kérastase Mousse Volumactive through damp hair to give texture and volume, and then rough dry your hair.

Step 3: Take a small section of hair at the nape of your neck, split it in half, and create a braid with each half.

Step 4: Wrap the braids around each other, and pin them flat against the back of your head. (You want them to be covered under the remaining lengths of hair.)

Step 5: Curl the bottom layer of your hair with a wave iron, and use a large-barreled curling iron to curl the top layer.

Step 6: Pin the ends of your hair against the braids on the back of your head to create the faux bob.

Step 7: Finally, lightly rough up the faux bob to get extra texture, and finish with a spritz of Kérastase Double Force Hair Spray for a matte look.

Favorite makeup, from the insiders at Jane Iredale

Five women in the marketing department at Jane Iredale shared their favorite, "Must Have" Jane Iredale products. (Here is the blog.)

Jane Iredale products are available at Von Anthony Salon, Frisco. 972-731-7600

My foundation of choice, and the one product I never leave the house without applying, is Amazing Base. I love the soft, luminous finish that it provides. In the winter I have terribly dry, red skin. Amazing Base covers the red spots completely so I never feel self-conscious.
Jacqui, Marketing CoordinatorMystikol Image

Mystikol eyeliner and highlighter. I use it every day. It can be as quick and easy as a swipe across the lash line, or as sophisticated as I can devise (and I am creative with my eye makeup, it’s my favorite!).
Angelica, Manager of Digital Marketing and Business Development

I loMoonglow Imageve Moonglow Quad Bronzer! It’s my go-to product because it gives me a beautiful, natural looking glow. It’s also a great multi-tasker because it can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks- so versatile! You’re instantly radiant with a touch of shimmer thanks to the 24-Karat gold flakes!
Laura, E-commerce Manager

The In Touch Complete Highlighter is my favorite product. In Touch Complete Highlighter ImageOnce I’ve got my foundation on and my skin tone evened out I use the highlighter to brighten things up. Working moms need all the help they can get to look awake and refreshed and this product does the trick! I use it on the tops of my cheekbones for a youthful glow and on my brow bones to open up my eyes.
Connie, Marketing Communication Specialist

My absolute favorite product is the Champagne Silk Eye Gloss. I wear it every single day as a primer for my eye shadow, my makeup never budges and it lasts for many, many hours.

Get The Look - Messy Spring Waves

Wearing a bit of wave or curl in your hair is still in style for Spring 2012, but make it look fresh for spring: mess it up.

Here's how:

Step 1. Prep damp hair with Kérastase Mousse Substantive along with Kérastase Lotion Densitive and blow dry to achieve a natural-looking yet smooth texture.

Step 2. Section hair and create loose waves by curling the mid-lengths with a 2 inch barrel curling iron, leaving the ends free.

Step 3. Lightly rake fingers through the waves, and spray hair with Kérastase Double Force Hairspray for a slightly matte look.

Step 4. Apply Kérastase Sublimateur Jour to the ends and finish the style with a light mist of Kérastase Double Force Controle Ultime Hair Spray

Kérastase Fibre Architecte Adds Silkiness Back To Her Hair

We recently read this review about Kérastase Fibre Architecte.

"Absolutely loving the Kérastase Fibre Architecte which is a dual serum that seals and repairs very damaged lengths and split ends (like mine, ha!). Just what the doctor ordered for my hair today, it got that silkiness back to my hair. I applied on toweled dried hair and blow dried straight. It’s a yes!"
