Hairdreams On Set with Snow White & the Huntsman

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the loveliest hair of them all? Thanks to Italian hairstylist Luca Vannella and almost 4,000 human hair extension strands from Hairdreams, hair on the set of this summer's Snow White & the Huntsman looked stunning. Luca used Hairdreams to create ultra-long, mega-voluminous locks for the ladies and an unruly, shoulder-length style for the leading man to compliment the time period and match the movie's opulent, majestic costumes.

Snow White & the Huntsman will hit theatres worldwide on June 1st. The movie is based on the well-known fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm.

Want the same voluminous locks on Kristen Stewart here?  Hairdreams are available at Von Anthony Salon, Frisco.  972-731-7600

More Celebrity-Inspired Wedding Hair

Hollywood's A-listers showed a variety of glitz and glamour recently at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France. These soft and romantic hair styles may provide you with some ideas as you finalized your special occasion styles for wedding season.

Von Anthony Salon, 972-731-7600

Diane Kruger - A 1-inch piece of hair is wrapped underneath this tightly pulled back chignon to hide any pins or bands.

Jessica Chastain - Wearing a deep side part, Jessica swept her fiery but retro curls to the side. The sideswept style works as a nice compromise when you are apprehensive about wearing your hair down with heavy earrings.  One will not overwhelm the other with this style.

Marion Cotillard - An oversized, voluminous bun, accessorized with a string of jeweled flowers.  Though the top is neatly polished with zero flyaways, her crown also has a subtle hint of volume and that makes her look more romantic than sleek.

Naomi Watts - Naomi’s style with two smaller, intricate buns placed low on the back of the head are complemented well with feathered flower pieces pinned just behind the ears. A slight finger wave in the front keeps the look sweet and a bit surprising from any angle.

MicroVenom Sunscreens at Von Anthony Salon, Frisco

Available at Von Anthony Salon, Frisco, Sonya Dakar Skincare's MicroVenom Daily Defense SPF 30 combines age-reversing apple stem cell technology and wrinkle-smoothing synthetic snake venom to go above and beyond the traditional sunscreen. 

The ultra lightweight product provides broad spectrum protection to prevent future signs of aging, while regenerative apple stem cells promote a more youthful appearance.

What is Apple Stem Cell technology?

Apple stem cell is the latest and greatest in noninvasive anti-aging treatments. It is developed by extracting the stem cells of a rare, very bitter apple tree in Switzerland.

These apples are known to have a very long shelf life, and when nicked, were known to regenerate themselves.

What is Synake?

Synake, or synthetic snake venom, is a combination of synthetic tripeptides that mimic the effects of snake venom when applied topically. The tripeptides work to temporarily inhibit muscle activity, which relaxes facial muscles and prevents the formation of wrinkles.

What makes MicroVenom different?

-Lightweight, Gel consistency
-Non Greasy
-No SPF scent
-Broad Spectrum (UVA and UVB)
-Leaves NO white streaks
-Leaves no cakiness so you can apply makeup easily afterwards

The BODY version has tripeptides that have a firming effect as it boosts collagen production, helping in key areas like the neck, chest, and thighs.
