The 85th Annual Academy Awards spared no expense showcasing some fabulous makeup and hairstyle trends. Here at BeautyStat, we couldn’t get enough of Old Hollywood glam with perfectly wavy hair, authentic side parts, and, most of all, Charlize Theron’s adorable pixie cut and Anne Hathaway’s full-on fringe!
Our very own Erin Sutera tells us which cosmetics to use to get the makeup looks of Jessica Chastain and Reese Witherspoon. Read on to find out how to recreate the night’s best hair and makeup looks at home. Look red carpet-ready every day …
It was inevitable that Essie would come out with their own nail appliques/stickers (shown in So Haute! above). Nail art is bigger than ever, and I truly wondered why Essie had not done these when Sally Hansen introduced their Salon Effects (yes, my obsession!) — I do believe Essie waited to find the right time to launch.
Once, a fellow BeautyStat writer e-mailed me a pic from her local drugstore showcasing the new Essie’s Sleek Stick Collection. I felt my adrenaline pumping faster and faster! I knew I had to get my hands …

There’s something to be said about seeing natural gray-silver, uncolored hair. For the second time in my life, I actually stopped a woman to let her know how very gorgeous I thought her hair was.
At first, she didn’t realize what I was saying, but I continued to tell her how much I loved …
Meeting Essie Weingarten, founder of Essie, back in September was a real treat for me — we got along beautifully. There was a time that I remember only seeing Essie‘s polishes in most salons and spas, and have always admired her clean ad campaigns and the catchy names of her polishes.

Since being bought by L’Oréal a few years back, I had hoped the company would keep Essie polishes as they were… and, sure enough, they did! The brand Essie is still everywhere I go and her campaigns are as witty …
Autumn leaves have started to fall. Calm winds gently creep in and so does the cold weather, resulting in dry, cracked skin and nails. So, as I was unpacking my woolen clothes and warm socks a couple of days ago, I looked at my hands: dry and chapped nails? Many of us face the same problem. With loss of moisture our nails get dry and dull, lose their luster and shine and get brittle, too. There are lots of products out there likely to give you harder and stronger nails, …
I’m forty-three, and last year I had one of the best times of my life attending the Fab Over 50 (FOF) event! I met the founder, Geri Brin, who welcomed me to this exciting beauty bash. New product launches, mini make-overs and hair trims were all part of the event and well known/celebrity makeup artists such as Sandy Linter, Sue Devitt and Paula Dorf, among others, were on hand giving clients tips on how to look their best.
I remember watching Mark Garrison cut attendees hair in amazement as he was fast and oh-so-good as …
Essie Weingarten (Essie founder) remembers years ago when she was in a fashion and beauty world mainly populated by men. Her own rise to the top was during this time and she says, “Now, I get such a thrill from rubbing elbows with the more fabulous women than ever. I created this collection with those can-do women in mind.” The shade and word Stylenomics ($8.00) is used to describe an opulent color that looks upscale without breaking the bank. It represents confidence and a sense of ease. Profound green plays …

Unless you’ve been on house arrest since January, you’ve probably noticed that the color palette for the upcoming summer season is all about neons.
BREAKING NEWS: Are neon nail polishes illegal in America? Find out the latest news ..>>HERE!
Neon hues have filtered virtually every part of fashion: from acid-colored denim to electric jewelry, day-glo stilettos to fluorescent belts. But, it’s hard to pull off such shocking shades with hair and makeup (unless, of course, you have nerves of steel — lime green eyeliner and hot pink highlights, anyone?). That’s why neon …
