CELEB STYLES | May / June 2014 |


Welcome to our first edition of Celeb Styles magazine. We have worked hours to bring you interesting information about hair and beauty – and because we just love celebrities we’ve added quite a few celeb looks and profiles. Looking back at some of their styles on pages 44-47 it’s hard to believe that RiRi and Victoria Beckham have changed their hairstyles so many times. There is no better feeling than leaving your hairdresser with a brand new hairdo and let’s face it, we look at celebs for inspiration – which is how Celeb Styles was born. The fabulous talented team working on Celeb Styles guarantee you an enjoyable read every two months. We were honoured enough to get local Catherine Grenfell and the gorgeous Fix, both from 5FM, to share their hair and beauty secrets with us in our first edition. Until next time.... With love from the

Celeb Styles TEAM!

Meet our contributors Angela Bekiaris

After completing a BA Journalism degree, I was ready to start doing what I loved most - writing. With broadcast journalism being my passion at the time, I was lucky enough to start working as a researcher on a top local talk show. My passion for writing and the industry in general had me looking for more, and I found where I had to be when I was hired as an entertainment journalist on one of SA’s top weekly magazines, People. As the years passed, and I made my way up to Deputy Editor, I knew that magazines was where I had to be, which is why I enjoyed an amazing 10 years with the publication. But the time came to start a family, and now I get to enjoy my passion from home…. being a freelance writer has allowed me to enjoy motherhood and the beauty of journalism. Talking about beauty… this industry has not only taught me about crazy deadlines and hot, breaking news, but about fashion, hair and beauty – and how important it is, for ourselves, to look good on the outside. Thanks to our favourite celebs, we have women who inspire us to look and feel better every day... And great magazines like Celeb Styles to showcase it. After all, the way we look on the outside plays a role on the way we feel on the inside.

Vanessa Papas

After qualifying in Journalism and Print Media, I started my career working in newspapers and magazines before heading to radio as the public relations co-ordinator for four top South African stations. I soon realised that life without writing was like Darth Vader without the mask so took the plunge five years ago and got back in the game, this time coupling my love for writing with my love for photography. My claim to fame isn’t my work ethos though, rather it’s my ability to experiment with hundreds of different hair colours throughout the years without ever needing a wig. Hubby calls me ‘the cat lady’, even though I don’t have any felines myself. I’m a staunch animal lover, determined dreamer, hopeless at parallel parking, mom, winner of World’s Best Wife Award, balloon phobic and sugar-coated idealist. I believe true beauty is in the eyes of the beholder but a swig of mascara and lip gloss never hurt anyone.

Letitia Herold

I was born and raised in Durban. After moving to the city of gold, I quickly realised that life was not all about slops, bikinis and how long you surf the wave. My modeling background saw me develop a love and passion for magazines and I was lucky to be offered a great opportunity at one of the biggest media houses in the country. I have the craziest and thickest curly mop; growing up I hated it but over the years I have learnt to embrace the curl. Not many women can have va va voom Beyonce hair and a super sleek Kardashian look on the same day!!! As a result, I am more interested in the treatments for my specific hair type, not to alter the curl but to make it softer and easier to handle. I am a popcorn ADDICT, chocolate lover and coffee hater but more importantly my children are the fuel of my soul. I once read ‘You cant do the same thing for 75 years and call it life’ so live, breath and embrace change!

You are in the public eye a lot. Do you feel pressurised to always look good and do you always make sure your hair and make-up is done before leaving home? Absolutely. I am not a heels girl so I do get away with casual wear, sneakers, hoodies etc. With that said you still need to look ‘somewhat’ fashionable. What is your take on beauty products vs plastic surgery and Botox? Each to their own, if plastic surgery will make you more confident then go for it. I would probably only get my breasts done after having kids, otherwise I am comfortable with my body right now.

How do you keep up with different Who is your style icon when it comes to hair and beauty? styles and trends? Well it recently has become Lupita Nyongo. #Obsessed styles your hair?

Fix bought her first vinyl at the age of 15 and fell in love with the DJ world after signing up with Soul Candi’s DJ School. She lived in the UK and US while growing up. At age 19, and after six years in the entertainment industry, Fix decided to go back to school – she studied at both Columbia College Chicago and New York University (studying Small Business/ Entrepreneurship). Fix also enrolled at the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), and consequently partnered with GIBS to give a life-changing opportunity to Africa’s next Social Entrepreneur by offering the Fix Scholarship.

CELEB STYLES | May / June 2014 |

atherine Grenfell is best known from her work on 5FM, in particular on the weekly Fresh Drive Show which was from 15h00-19h00 but has now moved to the 05h00-08h00 slot. A music lover and charity activist, Catherine loves life in the fast lane and is passionate about everything she turns her hand to, which includes her work on radio, adventure sports and helping those less fortunate than herself. Catherine, who joined 5FM in 2001 as a producer, has also earned her own show, and admits: “I am a total rock chick. My passion is music.” Catherine is also very involved in charity, has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for a charity organisation called The Lonely Road Foundation, ridden the Cape Argus and swam the Midmar Mile. “I really like being able to make a difference in the lives of people,” she says. “But I also love the fact that I can help South African groups get into the lives of music fans through the (live)5 show. There is such great talent out there and that makes my job easy.” Catherine is often in the limelight which means she has to make sure she looks fabulous at all times. So how does she keep herself looking so gorgeous... yet so natural? Catherine shares her tips and secrets with Celeb Styles.... and of course, we might steal some.


How did you get into media, and 5FM and how have things changed for you since being on The Fresh Drive?

I studied lighting and sound at Tshwane Technikon and I then I moved into production management. A friend of mine was working for Mark Gillman (who was the breakfast show DJ at 5FM at the time) and she was leaving and I took over from her. I was later asked to be on air (they were looking for a female to join the show). At that stage I was involved in South African music and I was able to bring that element on-air. After working with Mark for five years I was given the opportunity to work with DJ Fresh and I haven’t looked back. He is such an awesome person to work with. Being on air on The Fresh Drive has given me such amazing opportunities and opened so many doors.

Being a radio personality also means you’re in the public eye a lot. Do you feel pressurised to always look good and do you always make sure your hair and make-up is done before leaving home? There is a certain amount of pressure, but I’m not one of those people that takes note of it. I hate wearing make-up, so I generally don’t. I put mascara on and that’s about it. I love having the natural feel of my skin without make-up.

What is your take on beauty products vs plastic surgery and Botox?

I’m a natural girl. I think that people should rather embrace getting older than fight it. I want those laugh lines to be seen. It gives me character and shows what I have experienced in life.

How do you keep up with different styles and trends?

I’ve always kept to my own style over the years. I’m a huge ‘jean’s, T-shirt/vest, sneakers and sandal’ fan, so I just blend that with anything that I do find trending that I like. I love the fact that the grunge look is coming back. It was my favourite look from when I

was growing up. When I do dress up it makes me feel super special and I enjoy that moment.

Who is your style icon when it comes to hair and beauty? Angelina Jolie. She has her signature make-up style which I love and always seems to come across as a natural beauty.

Who styles your hair?

Cindy Christodoulou from Haircraft. I met Cindy when our children went to the same school. We became friends and then I started going to her for my hair. I love the way she knows exactly what I want and she isn’t afraid to try new things with my hair.

Products

Agadir Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner ghd

Catherine’s Style Icon

Which products do you swear by?

I use Agadir Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. I also use a ghd to quickly straighten or style my hair in the mornings or when I have a function, so I make sure that I use an argin oil treatment every couple of weeks.

What are your personal hair and beauty secrets?

I love using as many natural products as possible so my beauty secret is actually making my own face products. To clean my skin, I use a mixture of olive oil and castor oil which I mix into a pump bottle. Every morning when I’m in the shower I pump some of the oil mixture into my hands and spread it on my face and neck. I then let it stay there for a couple of minutes. I take a cloth with some warm water and put it on my face for a minute or so and then gently wipe off the oil. I then use a tiny bit of coconut oil to moisturise. For an exfoliation I will use some bicarbonate of soda. I also saw on Facebook about taking rosemary leaves and pouring boiling water on them, leave it to stand overnight and use the water as a toner. I’m definitely going to try that. Another natural thing I’ve been doing is using bicarbonate of soda to wash my hair and then I mix apple cider vinegar with some water and use it as a conditioner. Works amazingly well!

Catch Catherine on 5FM’s Fresh Drive, Weekdays between 05h00 and 08h00, as well as on 5FM’s (LIVE)5, Saturdays from 17h00 to 19h00.

Angelina Jolie Did You Know?

Catherine uses many natural products, to clean her skin, she uses a mixture of olive oil and castor oil which she mixes into a pump bottle. Every morning in the shower she pumps some of the oil mixture into her hands and spreads it onto her face and neck. Leaves on for a few minutes then rinses off.

Your Bridal Hair Trial Your bridal hair trial is one of the most important and exciting time during the wedding planning stage. You must make sure you meet with your stylist at least one month before your wedding. Use Celeb Styles tips to make sure your bridal hair trial goes well.  Look through magazines to get an idea of what you want.  Book your hair trial at least one month before your wedding.  Make sure you take your hair accessories with you. Your trial will cost you money, just because your stylist is doing your hair on the day doesn’t mean they will do your trial for free! Some salons will partially charge you but make sure you ask before you go back to the appointment.  If you are trying a new hair colour, do it six months before your wedding, just in case you have a dye-disaster.  Two weeks before your wedding, cut/trim your hair and touch up your hair colour.  One week before, treat your hair to a deep-conditioning treatment for softer, shinier hair.  Speak up! If you are not happy with the style, then tell your stylist at your trial. You want to be happy when you walk down the aisle.

Tip Don’t wear your hair pulled back too tightly. Your scalp may start to hurt and you will most probably end up with a killer headache.

Tips To Boost Shine

It’s been said that Kim Kardashian only washes her hair every second day as washing your hair every day dries it out and loses shine. Moroccan oil is also another hit with Kim, which makes her hair soft and shiny. For more on Kim’s style turn to pages 63 to 66.

11. If you rinse your hair with cold water it closes the hair cuticles making your hair smoother and shinier.

3

22. Frizz serum is affordable and you only need

a tiny amount to distribute through the hair once you have finished styling. Concentrate on the ends – you hair will be smooth and shiny.

3

33. Blow-drying your hair can damage your hair which will rob you of shine.

14

CELEB STYLES | May / June 2014 |

However, if you use heat 4. protection before blow-drying your hair you are guaranteed shine.

44. Colouring your hair too often can result in

damage, but some hair dye products actually boost your hair shine.

55. Invest in a brush made with natural bristles,

this will redistribute oils as you brush, restoring natural shine.

Our Stylist Of The Month Our fabulous stylist Brenda Aldridge from Stardust shares her expertise and tips with us. How long have you been a hairdresser? Since the age of 16. I worked at a salon close to home in the school holidays. After school I continued there full-time doing my apprenticeship and going to college part time. Three years later I did my trade test, and hey there was no looking back... I love my job.

What or who inspired you to get into hairdressing? According to my Mommy I had been cutting my doll’s hair from a young age. I also remember cutting my cousins hair too. So I think it’s in my bones as far back as I can remember, it’s all I have ever wanted to do.

What makes a great hairdresser? A great stylist should be dedicated, creative, and not afraid to go with their gut feeling, it’s normally the right one. Always listen to your clients and make the time to really hear their needs and wants. By doing that you will have their confidence in you as a stylist and that will be the start of a great relationship.

What is the one item every client should have? Me LOL…. I would say a good shampoo and conditioner is a good place to start. Everyone has their favourite ways Liezel’s before and after styled by Brenda

and tools to cope with their hair.

Where do you see trends going this year? That’s an interesting one... If you look at what’s happening with the male hairstyles they seem to be going back to the classics, I think the ladies are going to go the same way. People are definitely getting more daring with their hair. I would say that if you as an individual are confident in yourself, then you can pull off any style as long as your stylist believes it suits you.

What shampoo and conditioner do you recommend? There are many products out there for all types of hair. I would recommend any salon products. Chat to your stylist and he or she will recommend what’s best for your hair. I am a Goldwell fan.

What styling products do you suggest? Goldwell has a huge range of styling aids that will suit you, it really depends on your hairstyle length, texture, thickness and on your desired result. Again your stylist will help you.

22

CELEB STYLES | May / June 2014 |


Styliest TRENDS

How has the hair industry changed since you started? Oh wow it has change big time since I started. Hairdressing has definitely become more exciting. No more doing Mrs Smith’s hair every week and doing the same style. My clients are very exciting. We experiment with colour and cutting and styling. It’s way more fun!

What one top hair tip do you swear by? Condition is the biggest tip I swear by, reason being that your hair will be more manageable and your chemical treatment will be fabulous.

What’s the one product you can’t live without? I love my conditioning blow-wave cream, it works for everyone!

Have you got any advice for anyone wanting to start in the industry? Being a hair stylist takes hard work, dedication and long hours. My advice is to always make your clients feel special and listen to them.

What is your favorite perk of the job? Besides having my hair done for free! (Laughs). My highlight is that I meet different people every day, and the rewarding smile after I have made my client feel and look pretty.

Some hairstyles created by Brenda at Stardust.

Do you have a good work/ home balance? I do I have a very supporting hubby and an amazing son. They back me all the way. When I’m home it’s just myself and the men in my life.

What do you do to relax? I read... that’s my thing. And if the mood arises I will do a bit of sewing too.

Stardust Salon is in Cavendish Glen, Monument Road, Kempton Park. To contact Brenda call (011) 972-7040.

Gorgeous Wedding Locks

Celeb Styles got a sneak peek at Roxy Burger’s hair before her big day! How and when did your fiancé propose? He proposed to me on the rooftop of the 12 Decades hotel in Maboneng. He lured me there for a fake work meeting on a Saturday morning and we had a romantic breakfast! He then took me to the Saxon spa where we stayed for the night and had dinner at 500. Amazing!

How long have you been together?

We've known each other since high school and bought a house together four and a half years ago.

When is the big day?

We

got to know her and love her at a very young age as a K-TV presenter on M-Net. But since her years on the popular kiddies channel, Roxy Burger has come a long way. Roxy has been in the television and film industry for 15 years, studied and graduated with her Bachelors Degree in Audiovisual Production Management from the University of Johannesburg and later got her Honours Degree in Branding. The star also spent three years at UJFM, entered the 94.7 Highveld Stereo Hot Jocks competition, which saw her place second and continue as a DJ on the station for the next two years, and in 2010 was asked to join the latest celebrity crew of castaways on Survivor South Africa Maldives. Roxy was selected as a presenter for Season 2 of SABC 3’s entertainment news show Flash a year later and in 2013 was announced as one of the newest MTV DJs on MTV South Africa for MTV Choice on DStv’s channel 130. Roxy not only hosts the channel’s flagship entertainment property, but is also the voice of the channel. But it was time to put everything aside and focus on the day every girl dreams of – her wedding day. Yes, the child we met on K-TV is all grown up and getting married – and we were there during her hair trial at Square Bubble Hair Salon in Bedfordview a week before the big day. By the time you read this, Roxy would have already said ‘I Do’... but on that day Roxy was calm, collected and getting last minute things done on her laptop while having her hair coloured and styled – just the way she would on her big day. We chatted to the star about her hair and beauty secrets, her upcoming wedding and where she’s off to honeymoon.

CELEB STYLES | May / June 2014 |

On April 19, the Easter Weekend (She’s already an old married woman now).

Where are you having the wedding and what made you choose the venue? We are getting married at Forest Hall which is a beautiful 150-year-old manor house.

Tell us about your dress... who made it and what inspired it?

My dress was made by my friend Liza Mann and went for something really modern and different – it's nude and offwhite and not very traditional.

Who or what inspired your hairstyle for the day?

I saw a picture on Pinterest that I loved for the ceremony which is kind of ‘Sofia Vegara’ inspired. And then for the reception, my usual top knot!

What are your must-have hair and beauty products? And which ones will you keep close on your big day.

I swear by Dermalogica and make sure I get regular facials. I love using Moroccan Oil on my hair and am a big believer in using vitamins to strengthen my hair and nails. I take folic acid and Bio Gen's Collagen.

Share your hair and beauty secrets with your fans.

SLEEP! Get enough of it. And ALWAYS put sunscreen on your face – the number one way to not get wrinkles!

Who is your hair and beauty icon?

I love Gwen Stefani and her famous red lips. I love wearing bright lipstick and have actually decided to do exactly that on my wedding day.

Where are you off to on honeymoon?

We are going to the Vic Falls straight after the wedding for a ‘mini-moon’ and then off to the French Riviera in June.


Roxy’s stylist, Tanya Van Vuuren, shares her hair tips for a bride before and on the big day as well as her step-by-step guide on getting Roxy’s look and the the products used. How should a bride-to-be prepare for the big day?

Step One I started by washing Roxy’s

hair with a volume shampoo and conditioner so that her hair wouldn’t be too heavy to style. The conditioner was only put on the ends. I sprayed her roots with a volume spray and massaged it in.

The Ombre Revolution By Letitia Herold

The Ombre is still one of the hottest hair colour trends. The technique is a great way to still have great colour but without the high maintenance. During winter most of us opt to change our locks to a darker more natural look but with Ombre you can still have gorgeous golden locks without having to retouch your roots. Hollywood stars such as Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Khloé Kardashian, Jessica

Gafia Fredricks

Alba and Penélope Cruz have all embraced the Ombre look and opting for subtle changes, depending on the season. The Ombre look is here to stay so whether you choose caramels, platinum blonde or natural tones of brown... OWN the Ombre look!

The Ombre Makeover Dark to soft caramel Senior Stylist and owner of Fredrique Hair, Gafia Fredricks helps us get the dark chocolate to soft caramel ombre look. The ombre technique was used to give the hair a subtle lift through the mid lengths and ends. To achieve the look colour and not bleach was applied to the hair using a light vertical brushing technique, thus giving it a natural look. Foils are then placed over the hair strands, and left for approximately 20 minutes. As the hair was dry and damaged a Kerastase Nutri-Thermique shampoo, followed by a Kerastase Oleo-Fusion treatment was used — this provides the perfect protein and moisture for dry sensitised hair. The final result is soft beautiful looking hair, which naturally fades from dark to light, a look which can be worn throughout the season.

Celeb Styles MAKEOVER

Ombre is a french term meaning ‘shaded’. In terms of hair colour, it is the slow melting effect of a darker shade of colour gradually getting lighter towards the ends. We have seen this trend in Hollywood on Jennifer Lopez, Lauren Conrad and Khloé Kardashian and now Ombre hair colour is what every girl wants.

Before After

Pros To Doing Ombre Hair Colour

 Low maintenance look which means less frequent trips to your salon.  Ombre colour creates a sexy/edgy look thats great for both summer and winter.  Works on any skin tone from fair to dark,just choose hues accordingly.  Looks good curled, straight or beach waved.

Cons

 If not done properly, it can look as if you’ve just lazily waited too long in between colour services.  If your hair is very fine or super straight, ombre can look one tone or flat. (Works best on hair with volume or has movement.)  Having bangs(fringe) doesn’t always work with ombre hair. Bangs will be one colour whilst the rest of your hair is two tone  To achieve ultra light blonde to the ends, most hair will have to be bleached and this causes damage to the hair. | May / June 2014 | CELEB STYLES

Get A New Look

With Remy Hair Extensions Hair extensions can change your look by making you feel beautiful, confident and like a celebrity. We go into some detail when it comes to how, what and where you can get some.

Long

hair with added volume is every woman’s pride and joy and can make or break a woman’s confidence. For this reason, the demand for hair extensions has increased over the last few years. In fact, hair extensions date back to ancient Egypt, where hair extensions were used for cosmetic purposes. The demand for hair extensions by South African women has grown to match their global counterparts. Hair extensions provide an ‘instant’ solution for adding length and volume to natural hair and allows for more freedom and creativity in terms of styling of one’s hair. Hair extensions come in various forms, of which the 100 percent human remy hair is the most popular as it provides a natural look and lasts longer than synthetic hair. The term remy human hair is used for hair which has cuticles that are intact and aligned, such as our own natural hair. The term human hair refers to hair that is natural, but with cuticles that are not aligned and it can thus only be used for cheaper forms of hair extensions or wigs. Therefore the word REMY is very important when you purchase hair extensions. Hair extensions can be inserted using various methods, namely keratin bonds (keratin glue), micro rings, tape- or clip-ins. The method of installation largely

depends on the person’s preference, as well as hair texture. The tape extensions, also known as seamless extensions, are amongst the latest developments on the hair extension market. The tape extensions are perfect for people with fine hair as the weight is more spread out. These extensions are applied in the form of a sandwich method where two pieces are stuck together over a section of ones natural hair. Tape extensions are very popular in the USA and Europe due to the fact that they are easy and quick to install (+/- 30 minutes to one hour) and comfortable to wear. Unfortunately most women underestimate the importance and necessity of the correct maintenance process for hair extensions. In order for a person to increase the lifespan of their hair extensions, the right hair products and care should be applied. Hair extensions should be washed and treated with sulphate free products as they don’t get any natural oils from the hair follicles and thus have to stay hydrated. Often, women think they should not brush their hair extensions as they are of the opinion that this will damage their hair. The exact opposite is true – hair extensions should be brushed regularly so as to avoid any knots from forming close to the scalp. A boar bristle brush is perfect for this.

Strands of Love will offer you a free consultation and hair analysis and will provide you with top quality hair extensions. Visit www.strandsoflove.co.za or phone Julien on 083 619 8975.

Your Hair

This Winter

Redelia Govender, owner of Square Bubble Hair Salon in Bedfordview shares her tips for your winter hair... and your must-have winter hair products.

The Kloof Mall corner Kloof and Arterial East road Bedfordview, Shop No.7

Grow It Long & Strong Fast!

1. Trim off split ends, but only when necessary – go as long as possible between cuts. 2. Try to limit washing as much as possible – use corn starch as a dry shampoo to counteract oiliness. 3. Use only cool to warm water when washing hair. 4. Use conditioner to ‘wash’ hair, or use a natural shampoo without sulfates or silicones. 5. Comb hair while conditioner is in it, in the shower – always start at the bottom and work your way up. 6. Rub a drop of grape seed oil in hand and apply to ends of wet hair to condition and act as a heat protectant. 7. Use an old T-shirt to absorb excess moisture after shower, then allow to airdry – no combing, brushing or otherwise messing until completely dry. 8. Only use wooden, wide-tooth combs or boar bristle brushes and nondamaging elastics/accessories. 9. Avoid heat styling when possible. 10. Coconut oil makes for a great deep conditioner. Don’t over-condition though. If hair starts to feel brittle or heavy, use a natural, clarifying shampoo. 11. Sleep on a satin pillowcase. 12. Supplement with biotin (faster growth), silica (stronger growth), and MSM (lengthens growth cycle/shortens the fall out phases). 13. Be healthy! Eat right, get enough sleep and cut down on stress. Did You Know? Your hair is made up of three layers – the cuticle, cortex and medulla with a small amount of water lying between the cuticle and cortex.

30

Tips For Styling Curly Hair 1. Use a moisturising conditioner when showering. You want to get as much moisture into your hair as possible to soften the curl. 2. Look for products which contain olive oil, coconut oil and other hydrating ingredients. When you hydrate your hair, it adds weight which defines the curl, making them easier to manipulate and less likely to frizz. 3. Apply the product when your hair is wet so that the product can dry with the hair and help neutralise the curl. 4. Blow-dry your roots without a diffuser then attach a diffuser to dry the midlengths and ends so it doesn’t take hours to dry your hair.

15 Ways To Look After Your HAIR This WINTER Your hair needs extra attention in winter. Here are some tips to help you get started.

Melu Shampoo: R199

1. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables – at least five servings a day. 2. Use a protecting and repairing shampoo and conditioner. 3. If you get split ends from your hair being dry, use a serum on the tips. 4. Wear your HAIR up (fishtail braid or a bun looks hot) in winter rather than using your straightener. 5. Using an iron damages and dries out your HAIR, try to avoid it, it’s HARD we know! 6. Treat your HAIR to a hot oil treatment at home or have a treatment at your salon. 7. Try not washing your HAIR every day as the natural oils produced by the scalp will be stripped away and your HAIR will become more prone to dryness and splitting. 8. Have regular trims to eliminate split ends. 9. Settle for a luke warm instead of a hot water shower. Hot water can leave your scalp dry, itchy and prone to dandruff. 10. Coconut milk can be used for your HAIR as it’s a natural conditioner. 11. Olive oil (yes you heard right!) is very good for a head massage in winter. 12. Use a masque (see below) 13. Use the right styling equipment (hairdryer and straighteners). Make sure you have the latest appliances which use ionic and ceramic technology as they cause less damage to the HAIR. 14. When blow-drying point the nozzle of your hairdryer downwards to flatten the hair. Hold the dryer at least 15 to 20cm away from your hair to avoid breakage. 15. Pat your HAIR dry, don’t rub – patting helps smooth down the hair shaft and encourages shine.

More Inside Hard Wax: R290

Oi All In One Milk: R275 Ingredients For Your At-home Winter Masque: Combine half a mashed avocado, one egg yolk and five tablespoons of coconut milk. Gently massage into the scalp and leave for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse and see you hair shine.

Brad’s Hair: From Disaster To Sexy? By Angela Bekiaris

Brad

Pitt is without a doubt one of the most gorgeous men Hollywood, and the world, have ever seen. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t made bad hair choices over the years. We take a look at the actor’s best and worst hairstyles in the limelight. 34

CELEB STYLES | May / June 2014 |

10.

Movie roles or just plain fashion statements, we don’t care – Brad Pitt should have NEVER left home looking like this. There are no words to describe this look other than a gorgeous man turning into a scary, dirty hobo. We are so glad he found his stylist, razor and soap and never left the house looking like that again!

9.

No, no, no... Brad seems to be pulling a Jack Nicholson here. And while there’s no arguing the fact that Brad has the looks to pull it off, unlike old Jack, that style should be left with Nicholson and his sexy, yet slimy look.


8.

6.

7.

5.

OMG Bradley what were you thinking when you had this done – and more so when you left the house? Doesn’t suit the gorgeous actor, doesn’t give him credit and leaves us wanting to wash his hair and start again.

Okay, when you’re looking more like ex Gwyneth Paltrow, and less like... a man.... it’s time to have a chop. This really doesn’t do the handsome star justice – and we hope Angelina Jolie never allows him to grow it that long again!

Men shouldn’t have long hair – not even Brad Pitt! And while his smile does distract us, and while he could look worse (like he did in #7), the roots, and wavy hair blowing in the wind just doesn’t do it for us. Sorry Brad... leave ex-wife Jennifer Aniston to ‘The Rachel’.

While we wouldn’t suggest he bleach his hair again, we can’t totally hate this look. Many men wouldn’t be able to pull off this ‘do, but Brad has found a way to look sexy. Once off though Bradley.... please! | May / June 2014 | CELEB STYLES

4.

Looking sleek and stylish, Brad looks like a true Hollywood leading man with this hairstyle. It matches his outfit, his slightly unshaven face, and his gorgeous eyes. We love this look.

3.

‘I’m sexy and I know it’... that’s what he should have been singing when he walked out the door with this hair ‘do. Brad looks rugged yet handsome, leaving us blushing for more.

2. 36

Naughty, a little messy and gorgeous! The star’s plain but boy-next-door haircut has us hooked on him – and those bright blue eyes. No wonder he’s one of the sexiest men alive!

CELEB STYLES | May / June 2014 |

1.

Could he get more gorgeous? Brad looks sophisticated, goodlooking and in short, like the perfect man, with this look. Natural, clean-cut and oh-so-sexy. We’re drooling...

Want to be a blonde bombshell? Be ready for a serious commitment!

It was actress Dolly Parton who said: “I’m not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb... and I also know that I’m not blonde.” Dolly, like millions of women across the globe stepped into the light when she started dying her ‘mousy’ locks platinum blonde. While becoming a blonde bombshell is more than just about colouring your hair (it’s also about changing your mindset), your locks are a good place to start! Going from lustrous chocolate to an icy head of blonde takes time, money and commitment but if done right, the rewards are oh so sexy!

The Right Shade

Natalie Portman

In 2011 Jennifer Aniston shocked fans with a brassy hairdo that looked like she'd dived head first in a peroxide pot. Jen admitted she'd donned blonde to hide a clump of pesky grey that seemed to sprout overnight. Fortunately her hair stylist quickly rectified the blunder and a few days later she Jennifer Aniston was a gorgeous blonde. There are a number of different shades of blonde from platinum, light ash, sunflower and caramel blonde, to strawberry, honey, butterscotch and toffee blonde but not all shades suite all skin tones. The lighter your skin tone, the lighter you can go. For cooler skin tones, choose from platinum, to golden, strawberry or light blonde but steer away from shades that are white, ash and reddish. For darker skin tones choose honey, caramel or golden blonde but avoid platinum or light blonde shades. "If you want to look your best, your shade needs to complement your skin tone," says leading South African stylist and director at Jeauval Hair Salon Clinton Valjeaux. "When choosing the right shade, ask your colourist to see a hair colour chart (a useful tool for determining which one of the many shades to choose). Be open to what hue the colourist suggests. Remember, the ultimate shade depends on your condition, texture, and the history of your hair. If you've been colouring your hair for years with dark shades it might be a longer process to lift the colour. You might need several applications of highlights over three or four months before the perfect colour is achieved. Hair is made out of protein and bleach strips the protein and leaves holes in the hair shaft so when going light you have to use protein treatments and moisture treatments once a week - alternating the products weekly."


First Do No Harm

Going blonde is a bit like baking a cake. You can have all the right ingredients, in the right quantities, but if you leave it too long in the oven, it will burn. One of the most important lessons in hair colouring is that the final result depends as much on the ‘natural contribution’ of the hair colour as it does on the artificial dyes. There are a few steps you can take before going blonde that can ensure you hair isn’t left damaged.  Don’t dye or process your hair in the months leading up to the bleaching and allow hair to air dry as often as possible (if you have to use the blow dryer use it on a cool setting).  Don’t rush your colourist. Going blonde takes time so before you take the plunge make sure you have four to six hours free to spend at the salon.  Don’t bleach on freshly-washed hair. Your natural oils help protect your scalp.  During the bleaching process, if your scalp starts to really burn, speak up and tell your colourist as chemical burns can lead to bald spots.  After colouring, insist on a deep conditioning treatment.

Celebs Who’ve Gone From Dark To Light

 In 2008 stylish actress Natalie Portman’s hair made headlines when she went from dark to light. According to Natalie, her mother claimed that the blonde hair literally transformed her into a new person – changing not only her appearance, but her personality too.  The always stunning Jessica Biel transformed her dark hair for blonde in 2008. A poll conducted by a popular women’s magazine revealed more than 80 percent of Biel’s fans were unhappy with the colour choice, and preferred the actress as a brunette.  Trendsetter Victoria Beckham is known for her ever changing cuts, colours and love of extensions. In 2000, she stopped traffic when she donned a sleek blonde bob. She has been both light, dark and somewhere in between since.  Twilight star Kristen Stewart chose to ditch her dark locks in 2007 for a light tone of blonde but, a year later she Jessica Biel dyed her hair jet black and chopped most of it off to play Joan Jett in 2010’s The Runaways. In our opinion, Kirsten is better off a red-head.  Natural blonde, singer Katy Perry has dyed her hair black since she was 15 because she felt like her natural blond locks ‘just didn’t look right’. In 2011, she went back to her roots when she transformed her dark hair blonde.  If there’s one celeb who won’t conform to the norm, it’s Rihanna. A ‘hair chameleon’, Rihanna has changed her hair more times than we can remember but the one colour that’s really stood out is a buttery blonde hue she chose in 2012.

Ginger’s Best For Gaga

Very dark hair goes through stages of black, brown, red, red-gold, gold, yellow and pale yellow in succession before turning blonde. “When dark hair is exposed to a lightening product its black and brown pigments are the first to begin to break down or oxidise, then the red and gold pigments gradually oxidise. If you stop at this stage, you’ll likely end up with orange or ginger hair. Then comes the yellow and pale yellow stages, which are lighter versions of gold.

Talking Toners

After lightening your hair, your colourist will likely apply a toner. These are pastel colours used to cover unwanted tones (yellow, orange, red or brassy tones). “Hair toner is a wonderful tool that is great for colour correction and can also be used as a filler to even out the porosity,” explains Clinton. “When you bleach your hair not even your colourist can predict what colour it’s going to go. It could go yellow, red or orange. Sure, one of the factors that determines the colour is the length of time it’s left on the hair, but you can’t leave bleach on hair for extended period of time or you could land up with white bubblegum! The same colour toner needs to be used to equalise and correct the colour to all one tone. Some women have virgin hair and bleaching it results in white hair so toners are also used in this instance. Some colours go brassy or yellowy and some people like that but others prefer a more ash colour so a suitable toner to produce a more ash tone is then used. If you have dark and healthy hair but want to go light, rather do it over a long process and achieve better results than shock your hair. Expect about three hair appointments with a six-week break inbetween before you’ll get that perfect beautiful colour, while still keeping the condition and length.”

Tips From The Expert

Top tips on how NOT to end up with brassy, bright yellow, or frizzled fake-looking hair.  Going blonde requires maintenance. If you are going to do it, make sure you can afford the upkeep every four to 12 weeks, depending on the desired blondness and your existing natural colour.  The process from dark to light is best left in the hands of an experienced colourist. Box dyes are renowned for leaving hair orange.  Never leave the salon unhappy. If it’s not the right colour, speak up. It can take years to grow out a bad colour and there is always something your colourist can do to improve the tone and hue!  If your colourist pulls out a crochet hook and a plastic cap, reschedule with someone else.  Don’t go in the pool for a few weeks after colouring your Did You hair as the chlorine can mess up your colour. Know?  Blonde hair is more sensitive Gold is the single to sun and heat damage. Always spray on a thermal most difficult protectant before you blow dry, pigment to and again before you flat iron.  To prevent breakage, get eliminate in some anti-breakage shampoos, the hair. conditioners, treatments.

Celeb Hair:

Then & Now

by angela bekiaris

Hollywood’s hair ‘dos.... and hair don’ts!

While some stars have chosen the safer option of sticking with the same hairstyle over the years – dare we mention the name Jennifer Aniston, but it’s true – others have had no problem experimenting. Be it for a movie role or just for the fun of it, these celebrities have really gone all out. We take a look at just some of the ones who stood out for us...

Miley

CYRUS

Miley’s hair seems to have transformed with her character over the years. Whatever happened to those long, brunette locks... then again we can ask, whatever happened to that sweet, innocent young star? Today the singer/actress sports the short, blonde, harsh look, which matches her wild image... but we’re not quite sure we’re loving either.

Charlize THERON

While she hasn’t had drastic changes over the years, no one can forget what Charlize looked like in her Oscar-winning performance, The Benoniborn babe proved that hair does make a difference – however she is an exception to the rule... just look at those gorgeous features!

44

CELEB STYLES | May / June 2014 |


KATY Perry The pop star might have kissed a girl and liked it, but she seems to have dyed her hair and loved that too! Katy has probably dyed her hair every colour of the rainbow since hitting stardom – so we’re actually surprised she still has locks to show off. But she’s definitely not afraid of change or standing out, and we think it’s fab Katy’s so adventurous.

Angie has changed a lot over the years – and her hair seems to stick to her attitude. Gone are the rough Angelina Jolie days, with funky hair and matching outfits. Today, the more conservative and family loving star is comfortable with her plain, dark locks – both wavy and straight.

Victoria Beckham

From long, to short, and long again, Victoria Beckham always seems to look oh-sostylish. Guess that’s what happens when you’ve got the look. And while we have to say we prefer her with long hair, her short do definitely had people hitting the salons too.

rihanna

Crazy is her middle name – and not just on the party scene. Rihanna has tried many different cuts and colours – and with her status, we can understand why. We love her with every style... let’s face it, she’s got what it takes to make any hairstyle look absolutely fabulous!

Christina AguilerA

From cute and fresh, to dark and scary, Christina Aguilera literally went Dirrrty on us. As with her yo-yoing body, the singer has really gone overboard and out of whack over the years when it’s come to her hair. We say stick with the blonde Xtina... not just because they have more fun, but because you tend to scare little children with your darker side.

Britney Spears

Britney went all out – and shaved it all off for the limelight. Definitely not a look we recommend for anyone, but luckily Britney finally found her way back to sanity and is now ensuring her locks looks fab and shiny at all times.

Answered Your Questions

QA

Struggling with your hair? Celeb Styles offers the best solutions.... MY fringe sticks up, what can I do?

The best trick is to dry it before the rest of the hair to stop it from going fluffy and sticking up.

Our tip...

QA QA

Shampoo your hair correctly by massaging your scalp gently as it will release natural oils, but don’t rub too vigorously as it will make your hair greasy.

SCREAM… my curls are driving me crazy! How can I control them? Tame curls by mixing a small amount of conditioner with mousse and apply it to toweldried hair before you style.

I suffer from greasy hair and don’t have time to wash it every day, help? Try dry shampoo or hide it with a hair accessory. Hair accessories will take you from greasy to gorgeous in seconds.

Did You Know?

That old myth that if you trim your hair often it will grow quicker, is not true. Trimming your hair doesn’t make it grow faster.

QA

My HAIR is looking lifeless, what can I do? Try a double dose of conditioner, leave it in for a few minutes, then rinse and repeat.

“There are tricks I’ve learned from make-up artists on shoots. They put on the red lipstick, then blot it with a tissue, then they put powder over the tissue and sort of press it onto your lips. Then re-apply. It turns it into a stain that lasts much longer.”

“I think the quality of your skin is genetic, but if you eat right and exercise, that helps keep the elasticity in your skin and that youthful, healthy glow.”

The Victoria’s Secret model says she uses household utensils for beauty products. “You can curl your eyelashes with a spoon if you don’t have an eyelash curler.”

Kate Hudson

“My mother was a hippie and very health conscious, so growing up, she always encouraged my sisters and I to be as natural as possible. Once a year, we all still get together and put mayonnaise in our hair for old times’ sake.”

Cover STORY By Vanessa Papas

Living Life Beautifully If there’s one thing bootylicious brunette Kim Kardashian has maxed, it’s her ability to always look polished, preened, poised and pouty.

Whether

she’s attending a red-carpet do, or just snapped jogging in a pair of sneakers and tracksuit pants, Kim Kardashian always takes centre stage. While we all know Kim won’t be caught dead leaving the house without concealer, her insanely long fake lashes, and shimmering locks, there are a few beauty secretes you didn’t know about the sexy 33-year-old starlet. According to Kim’s besties, she’s been going to bed at night wearing a corset to get her waist as teeny tiny as possible ahead of her wedding to Kanya West. “Kim wants her figure to look absolutely perfect on her wedding day,” said a source. “Wearing a corset at night is extremely uncomfortable but has a proven record of results, and with just weeks to go, Kim is up for anything.” Kim’s massive mane is courtesy of high quality hair extensions, which she only ditches when she absolutely has to give her hair a break. | May / June 2014 | CELEB STYLES

A photo leaked of Kim in high school (1997) caused a furore when tabloids dissected the pics and claimed Kim had definitely had her lips and nose done. She says, not. Kim’s sisters Khloé and Kourtney have nicknamed their sis ‘Fancy Nancy’ because she’s ‘such high maintenance’ when it comes to her appearance. “Fancy Nancy always dresses extravagantly, wearing boas, tutus, ruby slippers, fairy wings, and fuzzy slippers,” says Khloé. “Nancy loves using big fancy words such as ‘iridescent’, ‘ecstatic’, and ‘extraordinary’ and anything in French – so the nickname suites Kim down to a T.” Kim’s secret to gorgeous glowing skin that looks and feels so good in the summer? Of course, she’d punt her own beauty product – the ‘amazing’ Kardashian Glow Lotion to boost bronze colour. Kim caused a stink with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) when she pointed out on her blog that she’s never given up on wearing fur. “Recently I have seen all of these blogs and magazine articles saying that I have given up fur. I definitely commend people who have taken that step to give it up, but to just be honest I have not. Khloe did the new ad for PETA and that completely makes sense for her – she hasn’t eaten red meat in over 10 years and it’s a because that’s close to her heart. I haven’t bought any new furs since Khloé’s PETA ad but I definitely will not look like a hypocrite when I wear fur and people put up these fake stories about me turning over a new leaf and giving up fur!”. Kim normally sports, long, layered centre-parted waves that reach to her chest, but this year has seen Kimmy shake things up a bit - opting for a choppier cut. “Everyone wants bangs, but you get frustrated during the growing-out process,” she admits. “I love bangs – I think it’s a good way to mix things up.” Kim’s eyebrows are always groomed. Her make-up artist Joyce Bonelli uses Smashbox’s eyebrow styling pencil, and then fills it in. Kim prefers a more round at the peak rather than pointed shape. One of Kim’s trademarks is her unbelievably big booty, which she maintains was a gift from Mother Nature. Despite rumours, she claims she hasn’t gotten butt implants, but new reports claim the reality star has spent more than $20 000 on butt injections. “Kim’s been focusing on her bum a lot lately – it’s becoming almost obsessive,” said a source. “She says the bigger it is, the sexier she feels. But Kim’s obsession is starting to worry her friends – they’re concerned she’ll take things too far. Kim says she wants an eye-popping booty that everyone notices. It’s part of her brand.” In her teens Kim would always match her eye shadow to every outfit until she saw pictures of herself and realised she was making the biggest mistakes in the beauty book. In January 2014, pics did the rounds of Kim sporting bald spots on the back of her scalp. The images showed Kim with her hair tied up in a high bun while out in

Los Angeles. It looked as though she was attempting to cover up her hair loss with weaves and hair extensions. According to hair extension expert Tatiana Karelina, it could have been Kim’s rapid weight loss or the birth of her baby that triggered her hair loss. Kim is not shy about using Botox. She’s spoken openly about having the procedure and even told of how she decided to brave it and have the injections without numbing cream, saying that she had a high tolerance for pain. When asked what the one thing she’d take to a desert island with her, Kim said sunscreen. “I would never go anywhere without it. I learnt this the hard way when I got severely sunburnt during a holiday to Mexico in 2009.” Kim admits her nose is her biggest insecurity and has always wanted a nose job. “I went to a doctor, I had them take the pictures, he showed me what it would look like and it just didn’t – I wouldn’t look the

same.” Kim makes a conservative effort to flaunt her best features. She always puts her chin down in pictures and it makes your face look a little skinnier. Although long talons may be the thing, Kim prefers to keep her nails short and neatly groomed. She likes them perfectly squared and carries a nail file with her wherever she goes.

Kim normally sports, long, layered centre-parted waves that reach her chest, but this year has seen Kimmy shake things up a bit opting for a choppier cut.

We Love

Kim’s Styles While

Kim has sported light locks, she warns others thinking of doing the same that blonde hair changes one’s whole dynamic. When Kim went blonde she had to get spray tans all the time and stopped the smoky eye and started with white eyeliner. Kim is known for her love for falsies and her lashes always look ultra long. While long eyelashes do run in the Kardashian family, Kim is a big fan of false lashes, especially for shoots and big events. Her favourites are Lancome Hypnose and MAC Zoom Lash. Kim believes ‘contour is so important’ and always has a light shimmer strip down her nose and above her lip to brighten up her face. “I put on all my foundation first,” she said. “I powder my face, then I put on concealer, and blend it with a pink egg-like sponge. Then I contour all here – think of a three (draws an invisible three

While Kim has sported light locks, she warns others thinking of doing the same that blonde hair changes one’s whole dynamic. on the side of her face). I go cheekbones, under chin, then the top.” Earlier this year Kim announced that her and her sisters have teamed up with Lipsy – a young British fashion brand founded in the heart of London – to launch a brand new Kardashian Kollection for the brand. “We always want to keep things fresh and exciting for our fans across the world and I know you guys are going to love the new pieces. There are some really stylish blazers for the fall, sexy evening dresses and statement pieces like this incredible full feather coat and sequin jacket. I can’t wait for you to see. Kim’s top beauty tip: Never go to bed with make-up. “My most essential product has got to be Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes in Night Calming,” Kim once said. “I need a make-up wipe at all times. Going to bed with a clean face is necessary in order to let your skin breathe. Otherwise, your pores become clogged with product, causing reactions.” To keep her skin from looking ‘shiny’ on photo shoots, Kim uses a matte bronzer rather than one that has shimmer in it. During her pregnancy Kim never let a day go by without using BioOil. She swears by the product to keep her stretch mark free, and even uses it around her eyes to prevent wrinkles. Blush can be a girl’s best friend, or worst enemy – depending on how it’s applied. Kim has mastered the art by using two different toned blushes. With a small contour brush she applies the darkest colour to the hollows of the cheeks then using a blush brush she applies the lighter colour to the top of the cheekbone for a more sculpted look.
