Hair Secrets From Celebrity Hair Stylist Jessica Fremuth

Image

Who doesn’t want shiny, luxurious celebrity hair?  Having amazing hair makes all the difference not only in how you look, but how you feel!  Here, I interviewed expert hair stylist Jessica Fremuth to get the inside story on how to achieve luscious locks of your own!

Trousseau of Dallas: This Spring it’s all about braids, knots, ponytails, and hair accessories galore!  What are your favorite trends for Spring?

Jessica Fremuth: I’m really into deep side parts right now!! It’s so much fun because you can totally change your look and get so much more volume from switching up your part. Im also really loving all the 60′s inspired hair I’ve seen on the runways.

TOD: A lot of women lighten their hair during the Spring and Summer months, do you suggest this?

JF: I absolutely love lightening up for summer months! Taking proper care of your hair is the key to having healthy, luscious locks no matter the season. A more natural sun kissed look achieved with balayage lightening is the best for summer!

TOD: You’re great at creating volume and touchable looks that last, what products do you reach for when creating those looks?  Do you have any tips for women to use during their morning routine?

JF: The perfect blowout is all about building a foundation. Start with a body building shampoo (I loooove O’right Goji berry volumizing shampoo). Use a good conditioner that will moisturize your ends without weighing the hair down. I like O’Right Purple Rose Conditioner. Some of my favorite styling products are “Body” mousse and “Blow-up Thickening Mist” both made by Blow. I like using them together to get the ultimate volume zing cocktail. Setting the top section of your hair in rollers while you finish getting ready will also add an extra kick of body.

TOD: What’s your favorite bad hair day fix?

JF: Dry shampoo saves my life many days!!! (I use L’Oreal Fresh Dust) I always find that a  topknot works well with bad hair day conditions and makes any outfit look chic.

TOD: Many women want the volume and length that hair extensions and hair pieces give them.  What kind of extensions do you like to use on your clients?  What are the different options available depending on a woman’s individual hair needs?

JF: The options for extensions and hair pieces these days are endless. What matters most in my opinion is the quality of the hair and how experienced the professional is that is installing them. There are many different methods for all different problems so you always want to consult someone who has extensive knowledge! I use Hairdreams and Cinderella brands for strand by strand extensions, Easihair for fun fringe and bang attachments, clip in and tape in extensions. I also use Hairdreams Volume plus systems for women who need options for thinning hair, hair loss or recovery from chemotherapy.

TOD: How can women keep their hair extensions and hair pieces looking their best between appointments?

JF: The best advice I have to keep your extensions and hairpieces in tip top shape is to invest in good quality shampoos, conditioners and styling products. It really makes a difference what you are putting on your hair and in your body. With strand by strand extensions, brushing your hair regularly and separating the bonds will be the key to keeping your hair as well as the extensions in the best condition.

TOD: As the Summer months approach, we start to worry about hair dryness and fading color from being in the sun.  What are your tips for keeping hair in top shape throughout the season?

JF: Using a conditioning product that also protects your hair from UV damage is best during these scorching summer months. “Time to Shine” from Blow does just this plus smells ahhmazzing. Malibu C makes a great shampoo called “Swimmers Wellness”that will combat the damaging effects of harsh elements from the pool. Getting a glaze at the salon will also give life and incredible shine back to your hair!

TOD: You do beautiful hair for events, and right now it’s undeniably wedding season!  What is your favorite hairstyle for a blushing bride?  And for those of us attending a wedding, what style would you suggest?

JF: I am seeing a lot of retro inspired styles as well as very sleek, tidy up-dos this wedding season. You can never go wrong (and look effortlessly chic!) with romantic, loose wavy hairstyles.

Zoe Saldana’s Stylist: How to Freshen Your Wardrobe Right Now

trousseauofdallas:

Spring has Sprung and we love these tips from Zoe Saldana’s Stylist on how to get back in the swing of things!

Originally posted on InStyle.com What's Right Now:

Zoe Saldana’s longtime stylist, Petra Flannery, knows a thing or two about how to change up a wardrobe, which is why we turned to her to find out how to brighten up our spring closets. Running low on time? Shift your focus, Flannery suggests. “Freshen up your tops—everybody always has jeans and their little black jacket, but sometimes mix it up with fresh new tops,” Flannery told InStyle.com. “Also, try different necklines. That way you have your favorite pants, but you can make it look different.” Saldana followed this tip with her fun summery blouse, which she paired with a pair of moto-style denim (right). “Petra has been influential in my closet, but I run with it,” Saldana noted. “Sometimes she’s proud of me when I come see her for coffee!” 

Plus, see Zoe is the cover girl…

Oprah’s Brow Guru Damone Roberts in Dallas

ImageApril 8 at Hotel Zaza, eyebrow guru to the stars Damone Roberts graced Dallas with his presence! Brought to us by the lashionista herself, owner of Lash Maxx Claria Nieves; Damone Roberts hosted his “Master Class” for makeup artists and waxing professionals from all over the country.

I was lucky enough to serve as one of Damone’s models and was given the opportunity to witness firsthand the transformation that can be achieved with the perfect eyebrow.  The right brow for your face shape will frame your face in a way that lifts the eye area and balances your features.  The transformation the perfect brow can give you is similar to botox or a facelift, hence Damone Roberts’ role on the hit TLC show “10 Years Younger” And the good news is, you don’t have to travel all the way to Damone’s salons in NYC or Beverly hills to experience his one of a kind technique.  You can now get the same star treatment here in Dallas at Lash Maxx.  Trained by the master himself, you’ll walk out with brows like Beyonce’s!

Revolutionary Strapless Bra

   

Image

   We all love paying special attention to our fancy lingerie, but did you know that skimping on your basics is a huge mistake?  All bras are not created equal.  And wearing one that doesn’t fit properly or is poorly made can ruin an otherwise great outfit.  This is especially true of the dreaded strapless bra!  Nobody likes a strapless bra that engages them in battle all night: you pull it up, it falls down… it’s emberassing and unflattering!   Also a lot of strapless bras sit lower than bras that have the added support of straps; which visually adds about 5 pounds to the frame.  

     The solution to all of these problems lies in the Romance Strapless bra from Simone Perele.  This bra provides the most comfortable seamless support, you’ll forget you’re even wearing a bra!  The smooth microfiber provides sculpted coverage and visually lifts the breasts.  While the silicone grips keep the bra from sliding down and ensure that it remains comfortably in place all day/night.  This bra must be seen to be believed!  Once you wear one, you’ll never look at strapless bras the same way again!  The Romance Strapless bra is an investment staple piece that every woman should have in her wardrobe.

2013 Oscars Best Dressed

Picture 24

Best Dressed:  Jennifer Lawrence

Even though she took a tumble on the way to accepting her award, Jennifer Lawrence looked amazing at the Oscars Sunday night.  Not only did she win Best Actress for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook, she also wins our award for best dressed.  In pale pink Dior Jennifer looked every bit the toast of Tinseltown.  The blush pink hue of the dress enhanced her fair complexion beautifully.  And with her hair swept up, there was nothing to distract from her gorgeous face.  We also love that she put a fresh twist on her jewelry by wearing her 74 carats of Chopard diamonds backwards.  It was unexpected and the diamonds flowed backwards in a way that was reminiscent of a princess’ cape.  Sheer perfection.

Picture 26

First Runner Up: Catherine Zeta Jones

Catherine Zeta Jones dazzled in a gold Zuhair Murad stunner at the 2013 Oscars.  The designer is also a favorite of other A-list actresses Blake Lively and Sofia Vergara.  Zuhair  never disappoints with his intricate detailing and eye for creating a feminine shape.  His gowns are the  go to for a woman who wants to make an entrance..and hold your attention.  And Catherine Zeta Jones surely accomplished both in her gilded gown.

Picture 28

Second Runner Up: Charlize Theron

As far as we’re concerned, Charlize Theron can do no wrong.  She always looks elegant, and was true to form as she debuted a sleek new ‘do at the Oscars.  Charlize went for a minimalist look with her short crop and crisp white Dior Haute Couture gown.  The sharp lines enhanced her statuesque figure, and her short hair played up her delicate features.

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards

Every year The Grammy Awards is one of the most anticipated red carpet events known for fun and fashion!  We love watching our favorite artists perform their hit songs while dressed to the nines!  Here are our favorite looks from the night:

Image

 

We loved Taylor Swift’s Grecian inspired J Mendel gown.  She played up the Greek goddess vibe perfectly with her braided updo and bronze skin.  

Image

 

Justin Timberlake wins our award for the best dressed man.  He pulled off that classic crooner look to a T by sporting a dapper retro “suit and tie” that left the ladies swooning.

Image

 

Rihanna was hard to miss in her fire engine red custom Alaia gown.  In keeping with her signature sexy style, she showed just a hint of skin.  But the draping and length kept her look dress code apropriate.  The resulting look was classic and beautiful.

Image

 

Miranda Lambert brought the glitz and glamour we were missing from some of the other  looks for her duet with Dierks Bentley.  She showed body confidence by playing up her legs and adorning herself with jewels!    

Image

Jennifer Lopez, who no doubt had a hand in the new dress code this year, was unshakeable in her dedication to showing skin.  Her makeup and hair looked beautiful as always, but this dress fell flat.  Reminiscent of the Angelina “leg dress” Jennifer was trying a little too hard to keep up with her reputation for skin baring.  It looks like it would be more appropriate as a beach cover up poolside in Miami.

As always, there were some hits and misses from the night, but it was fun watching the whole thing unfold!  Let us know what your favorite looks were from the night!
