Elizabeth Olsen hair style at Sundance using Lenor Greyl Haircare


, ,

Hairstylist David Stanwell created Elizabeth Olsen’s hairstyle using Leonor Greyl for the premiere of “Red Lights” at The Sundance Film Festival.

Channeling Brigitte Bardot, Stanwell created “a really nice blow out on Elizabeth using the Spray Structure Naturelle all over the base of her hair for body and lift.”

Using a large round brush, Stanwell styled the hair in sections to ensure a smooth effect.

Stanwell finished off the look with Leonor Greyl’s Laque Souple, a light styling spray, to protect against fly aways and ensure a light hold.





Sigourney Weaver Prepped by Nick Barose for Patyka at Sundance 2012

Nick Barose for Patyka prepped screen icon Sigourney Weaver for her film premiere “Red Lights” for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

“For Sigourney Weaver’s Sundance premiere I prepped her skin with Patyka Huile Absolue Face & Body Serum to add hydration to the skin before applying liquid foundation.” In the cold weather skin can get more dry, especially after makeup.

“For under eyes, prep with Patyka’s Biokaliftin Radiant Eye Contour which add hydrations so your concealer won’t crease.”

To keep the rest of the body glowing in cold Sundance weather, I gently massaged Patyka’s Precious Wood Body Oil. Which will add hydration and leave skin glowing.

Uma Thurman’s Hairstyle How To’s from Paris Fashion Week

Celebrity Hairdresser David Babaii flew to Paris to create Uma Thurman’s looks for Paris Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2012 Collections


Uma Thurman Front Row at Chanel on October 4, 2011


At the Chanel Show, Uma Thurman sat front row with her tousled Bohemian up-do by celebrity hairstylist David Babaii. He created this romantic and elegant style to emphasize Uma’s beautiful bone structure and timeless Chanel dress. He began by spraying her entire head with Pure Texture by IT&LY HAIRFASHION (www.italyhairfashion.com) scrunching into her hair for body, lift and texture. Next, he dried her tresses using a small round brush to create both texture and curl. After drying, he applied some IT&LY HAIRFASHION Pure Definition Paste into his hands, using his fingers to loosen the curls from the mid-section to the ends only. This was done as to not disturb the texture at the top and crown area. Next, he carefully finger combed all hair back using his fingers to gently roll and twist hair to the center back of the nape, securing with bobby pins and allowing any loose hairs to fall naturally. For a natural and long lasting hold, he used IT&LY HAIRFASHION Pure Definition Hairspray with memory hold to complete the look.


Uma Thurman at the Louis Vuitton Show on October 5, 2011


For the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 Show, David changed her look to a shiny sleek ponytail to compliment her brightly patterned Louis Vuitton dress and red lips. To achieve the look, David Babaii began by applying Pure Fluid Experience by IT&LY HAIRFASHION (www.italyhairfashion.com) to hydrate and add shine. He blow dried her hair bone straight using IT&LY’s Racing Red Ionic Blow Dryer. After tresses were dry, he created a long side part and applied IT&LY HAIRFASHION Pure Definition Paste to sweep the hair to the side and straight back. David brushed and smoothed the remaining hair back into a ponytail, finishing with IT&LY HAIRFASHION Pure Definition Hairspray.

Minx, Inc® Pleased to Share Signature Collection Designed by Celebrity Nail Technician Naja

Minx, Inc® Pleased to Share Signature Collection Designed by Celebrity Nail Technician Naja

 Minx, Inc.® co-founders Dawn Lynch-Goodwin and Janice Jordan are pleased to announce the new “Minx Professional for Naja” line, the latest in a series of collaborations celebrating leading nail stylists around the world.

“Being able to give Naja and other incredibly talented nail stylists the opportunity to share their artistry and vision with others is both fulfilling and a true honor,” says Minx co-founder Dawn Lynch-Goodwin. “We want Minx to give nail stylists something to have fun with, to make money with, and to put interest and intrigue back into their craft again,” Dawn continued “Naja is a brilliant nail stylist and businesswoman, and this particular Minx line offers nail stylists many opportunities to show their skill and artistry and get their customers excited.”

“Narrowing the designs to only eight was the most difficult part of the process, but fortunately we were able to get feedback from hundreds of nail technicians during trade shows and through Facebook to help us select the final line,” said Naja, whose clients include Lady Gaga, Fergie, Ke$ha, and Mariah Carey. “My hope is that the designs resonate with my fellow nail stylists and get their creative juices flowing,’ she explained. “I wanted to offer Minx that had many dimensions, and celebrate the growing momentum and excitement the Minx nail stylists have been enjoying in the nail industry.”

The new Minx Professional for Naja line consists of eight designs that the West Hollywood celebrity nail stylist says were inspired by the men she’s loved and the places they’ve been. “The art deco structural lines, shapes and geometric tidbits are a metaphor for the twists and turns that happen on the road of life,” Naja explained. “The transparent lace designs are an artist’s playground which can be worn on their own, but that also invite the nail stylist to layer, embellish, and basically let loose with their creative juices,” said Naja. And, of course, all the collection has lots of shine, metallic shine!

“Dawn and I are proud to say that Naja was one of our first customers, and believed in us back when we were driving around Southern California in a pickup truck trying to get nail stylists to try out our product,” said Minx co-founder Janice Jordan. “The journeys and challenges that have inspired her designs are very relatable to anyone in the nail business, and so this collection is very personal to us.”

The Minx Professional for Naja line can be purchased online by nail professionals through the http://www.minxnails.com/ Web site.

Minx, Inc.® is a private company that extends fashion to your fingertips®. The company’s patented Minx product has rapidly become the premiere fashion accessory for nails and has been worn by countless celebrities and fashion icons.
