Pastel Purple Haircolor Trend Review 2014, 2015 Photos: Hot Head Extensions - How To Temporarily Change Your Color Without Damage, Chemicals Like Nicole Richie

When I was in high school, only raccoon-eyed scene girls rocked cotton candy pink and mermaid blue hair. Fast forward to 2014, and everyone from Lauren Conrad to Nicole Richie is test driving pastel locks. I want pastel hair now more than I ever did as a punk wannabe in 2004.

But not all of us are professional pretty people who can go to work with all-over lavender hair. Or want to deal with the maintenance of bleaching, toning and waking up with Manic Panic-stained pillowcases. And some of us are just natural redheads terrified of frying our hair and ending up with a color that clashes with ginger (just me?).

Luckily, the new Hot Head extensions let you achieve your My Little Pony hair dreams with zero chemicals and no damage. The stylists at Pierre Michel apply as many extensions as you want with an adhesive weft (think real hair in technicolors), attached to extra-strength double stick tape. They look just like real highlights, can be washed and styled, and won’t rip out your hair. No one has to know you skipped the bleach for a quick fix!

Hot Head extensions are totally customizable in trendy shades like peach, turquoise and lavender. You can mix and match shades or even sandwich in a ribbon (I chose lavender with the girliest possible pink ribbon, obviously) for a real fantasy look.

There’s absolutely no risk since they remove easily, so go nuts! Hot Heads last longer than hair chalk (about 8 weeks) but have none of the commitment or damage of bleaching and dying. Want them out early? Just pop back into the salon. Full Disclosure: I decided after a few days at the office to yank out one of the ribbons, and was able to tease it out with a double dose of conditioner while leaving the lavender highlight intact. Definitely not recommended, but proof that this is the perfect way to test drive summer’s girliest hair trend without fear.

Haircolor Chalking – How To Get The Look

Hot Head extensions are also much easier than dyed highlights for the girl on a time crunch. Mine were done in just a few minutes, and I was trimmed and styled in less than an hour. You’ll spend more time Instagram-ing your My Little Pony locks than you do in the chair. Adhesive extensions are also available at Pierre Michel in a full range of “natural” hair colors.

Are you ready to embrace your purple hair envy without all that commitment?

Advanced Glycolic Smoothing Treatment

Manage frizz for months? We like the sound of that! This formaldehyde- and aldehyde-free keratin infusion treatment  penetrates into the hair cuticle to reduce frizz and curl, while repairing damage and blocking humidity.

Hair stays smooth and silky for up to 3 shampoos. Can your regular blow-outs do that?

Amy Michleb showed me how this new treatment works. She literally smashed the caviar-like beads of the treatment and mixed them together to apply on my hair in sections with a brush, as if she were applying highlights to my hair. After about 30-minutes under heat, it was rinsed out and my hair looked shiny, revitalized and ready for summer!

And while I was already there, Woody suggested some streaks of pink color for a fun summer look. The best part was that I didn’t even have to damage my hair! He just stuck the strips of hair into my scalp and I was ready to rock 6-8 weeks worth of pink hair! So many options at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa.

2014 Wedding HairStyle Trends: Get Jessica Simpson & Olivia Palermo's Half Up/Half Down Ponytail Looks, Sleek Center, Disheveled Halo Braids

Summer beauty can be tricky due to the constant heat and humidity, so if you have a summer wedding etched down on the calendar, don’t let creating a flawless summer hairstyle get you down.

How-To Get Faux Curly-Haired Bobs, Small Volumized Curls & Textured Waves For Weddings

Perfect enough to get your hair off your face, but not too showy to take the focus off the bride, we’re rounding up the trendiest summer wedding hairstyles you just have to try. From stylish braids to super-sexy ponies, get ready to put your best hair forward and rock any of these stunning looks!

Half Up/Half Down Chic

We got the scoop on how to achieve Jessica Simpson‘s elegant half up/half down wedding style hair from Devin Toth, Senior Stylist and Director of Education at the Ted Gibson Salon.

Step 1: Prep your hair with a light volumizing product such as Kerastase Volumifique and then blow it out with a large round brush.

Step 2: Next, wrap large vertical sections of hair around a large curling iron.  When you’re all finished curling, brush the hair away from the face with a boar bristle brush; this process will give the hair a very soft yet flowy texture.

Step 3: Securely section off the hair on the top of the head with a “horseshoe-shaped” section (from your temple, around the bottom of your crown and then to your other temple). Clip that section out of the way to use later.

Step 4: Backcomb the hair on the sides of the head and then gently brush the sides (at the same time) towards the lower part of your crown.

Step 6: Combine the sections, twist them and secure with bobby pins.

Step 7: Finally, take the hair on the top of you head (that you sectioned out before), lightly backcomb the roots and then gently brush it away from the face and over the twist at the lower part of the crown.

Step 8: Add  the hair from the top to the twist you’ve already created and secure it into the twist with bobby pins.

TIP: The twist in the back isn’t the important part, especially if it’s covered by a veil.  The important aspect of Jessica’s hairstyle is how the front looks sculpted — that’s what makes it look elegant. To ensure the front looks sculpted, at the end, use a strong hold hairspray like Laque Noire, and spritz your boar bristle brush (if you don’t have a boar bristle brush, just use a new tooth brush). Now, ever so gently glide/brush the hair one last time away from your face towards the back or your head. This will make it super-smooth and last all day!

Disheveled Halo Braid

Braids always make a great go-to style when attending a wedding, as you don’t have to worry about it all day and night. Looking sharp with an open neckline or strapless dress, Cutler/Redken Stylist Jenny Balding shows us how to create a Disheveled Halo Braid emulating stars like Scarlett Johansson and Amanda Seyfried.

Step One: Create a middle part and split the hair into two sections.

Step Two: Braid each section starting just behind the hair.

Step Three: Bring one braid over the top and secure with a hair pin behind the ear.

Step Four: Use your hairpin like an anchor and twist it back on itself. This is the perfect way to disguise, and secure, your halo braid.

Step Five: Then secure through the top sections if necessary with a couple of hair pins.

Step Six: Repeat on the other side.

Sleek Center Braid

2014 Wedding HairStyle Trends: Get Jessica Simpson & Olivia Palermo's Half Up/Half Down Ponytail Looks, Sleek Center, Disheveled Halo Braids

If you prefer a more quirky finish, a Sleek Center Braid definitely works for a summer wedding, as it allows you to wear your hair down and works with almost any neckline. Follow Jenny Balding’s thorough steps to achieve this edgy, cool look.

Step One: Blow-dry hair very straight by using a smoothing, straightening lotion.

Step Two: Section a mohawk section of 2” width coming into a point at the nape.

Step Three: Use a dry shampoo on this section to create texture and grip to the hair.

Step Four: Reverse braid from the hairline right down to the nape, and secure with a small band.

Step Five: If necessary, finish by using straightening irons to the loose hair to create a sleek, polished feel.

My Pretty Ponytail

Even ponytails can prove to be wedding-chic, as proven recently by Olivia Palermo, who sported a tousled twist on her very own wedding day. To recreate this effortlessly beautiful look, Celeb Hairstylist Mark Hill breaks down this look in 6 easy steps!

Step One: First, take a section of hair and spray with Mark Hill Gorgeous! Work it Girl Shine Protect and Control Spray. Run your fingers through the section to ensure it is evenly distributed. The spray will not only protect your hair from heated appliances up to 235°, it will also give your waves a great hold and gorgeous shine.

Step Two: Then, take a heated wand and wrap the section spirally around the barrel of a large tong or wand. Hold for a few seconds, and then unwind.

Step Three: Immediately coil the wave towards your roots and secure with a pin curl clip. This is a great tip to ensure you get an even wave result throughout all of your hair and to make the waves last longer.

Step Four: Do this through the rest of your hair, remembering the larger the section, the looser the wave.  When all of your hair is done, spray over one more time with a light mist of Mark Hill Gorgeous! Work It Girl! Shine, Protect and Control Spray and allow to cool completely before removing the clips.

Step Five: Pull your hair back into a ponytail at your crown – it’s best to use a product to help smooth your hair and add some hold to the waves, such as Mark Hill Viva La Volume Volumising Blow Dry Mousse before pulling it back.

Step Six: Use a pin tail comb to help smooth and keep things neat, and add some Mark Hill Gorgeous! Quick Change Texturising Polish to give your ends that extra texture and va-voom!

How To Get The Look: Farrah Fawcett 5th Anniversary: 70s Feathered Wavy Curls Hairstyle & Makeup Tips For A Beauty Icon

That flip! Those piercing blue eyes! That smile. Farrah Fawcett has been a fashion and beauty icon since her Charlie’s Angels days. BeautyStat.com wanted to help immortalize her look by learning how to bring her ‘70s style into the 21st Century. We went to the Pierre Michel Salon in NYC to create a more modern Farrah hair and makeup look that we could wear on a daily basis. The signature look is versatile as it adds volume with layers, dimension with bangs, sun-kissed color and flintiness with the bounce and curls!

How To Get The Look: Farrah Fawcett 5th Anniversary: 70s Feathered Wavy Curls Hairstyle & Makeup Tips For A Beauty IconSelfie time! With Theirry and Moshe at Pierre Michel Salon

With the 5th anniversary of Farrah’s untimely death being today, June 25th, we would like to celebrate her life by offering you step-by-step directions on how to re-create a modern Farrah Fawcett look at home with some of our favorite products. Read on!

How To Get The Look: Farrah Fawcett 5th Anniversary: 70s Feathered Wavy Curls Hairstyle & Makeup Tips For A Beauty IconMy hair is a little longer than Farrah’s, so this is what loose curls look like on long hair without layers.

When I was first given the opportunity to turn my long brown hair into the bountiful blonde curls that was Farrah’s, I a was a little hesitant. I don’t have layers and usually keep my hair in braids, but the salon’s legendary Hairstylist Theirry Brunet, who had worked on Farrah’s hair, was up to the challenge. He sprayed some prep spray into my dry hair and proceeded to use a curling iron to create some flirty, loose curls.

Once that was done, he took a smaller curling iron to turn my bangs into the Farrah flip! I was immediately transformed into a dreamy ‘70s starlet. Add some hairspray and there you go! But the one thing you have to do is use your hands to scrunch and add even more volume! Theirry really got in there and even took some random pieces, scrunched up to add untamed volume.

Next, it was off to makeup. The salon’s Celebrity Makeup Artist Monika Crouch explained that Farrah’s look was simple and clean. In the ‘70s it was all about pale, glossy lips, clean, shimmery eyes and lots of bronzer.

How To Get The Look: Farrah Fawcett 5th Anniversary: 70s Feathered Wavy Curls Hairstyle & Makeup Tips For A Beauty Icon

My face was cleansed with Bioderma Créaline H20 and moisturized. Then, she applied Shiseido ‘Perfect’ Hydrating BB Cream to create a luminous and even complexion. To get that bronzed out look, Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel is the perfect cream bronzer that when applied to your cheekbones, forehead and high points of your face, creates a naturally sun-kissed look. Face Stockholm Crème Blush in On Hudson and Rome added some more definition to my cheekbones with the addition of some highlighting power.

Eyes in the ‘70s were usually left nude with gold and brown shades. No cat eyes here! Monica applied MAC Paint Pot Pro Longwear in Bare Study as a base and added Face Stockholm Eye Dust shadows in Reality and Curious. Some black liner helped to add some impact to the eye (but you can go without and rely entirely on your mascara) and loads of individual false lashes created that come-hither, but-wait-I’m-an-undercover-agent look. Lips are left ultra-glossy with a swipe of Face Stockholm Pot Gloss in Honest.
