Lily Allen for CHANEL

Ok, when I first heard that Lily Allen was the model for the new Chanel campaign, I couldn’t believe it.

1. She’s totally wild, with her crazy colored wigs and punk looks.
2. She’s very petite. Usually stars like Nicole Kidman model for Chanel.

But the photos are here!




…I love them!! I love the hair, the tiara, the hot leather, the sunglasses.

… kind of an Audrey Hepburn meets Biker chic.

Karl Lagerfeld did all of the photography and styling himself… I love his taste.

Great job, Lily. If I could afford Chanel, I’d totally purchase what you were wearing because you ROCKED IT.

Just for fun:
Some of Lily’s other looks:




Inspiration: Metamorphosis

Paul Mitchell just launched their new Fall 2009 Collection: Metamorphosis, which has been described as a Salvador Dali and Stan Lee inspired collection, where surrealism meets animé.

The shapes and textures of the hair are out there, nothing that any person would wear for commercial purposes, and the artistry in the photos are bold, mixing black on white, with pale faces and dark lips.

To create the textured looks of the collection, hair was prepped with Paul Mitchell Quick Slip™, then molded into rolls and extended shapes with Paul Mitchell Worked Up™ and Extra-Body Finishing Spray®. Paul Mitchell Illuminating Shine Spray® was finally misted over the final looks to
add a radiant shine.







Stef’s Wigs 4 Kids makeover

Remember Stef?


Well today at 2pm, she is chopping off a good 12″ of hair for Wigs 4 Kids.

The new cut?

The Taylor Momsen Shag!!


I think it will be perfect for Stef. Her and Taylor both have fine, straight hair. These layers all over give the hair a look of more fullness, which Stef really needs once her hair is gone. She can also still wear it in a little ponytail if she really needs to.

EDIT: We chopped it!!!

I was so AMAZED by how much texture her hair got once I chopped it. I always thought Stef’s hair was straight straight straight and thin. It would never get volume or curl no matter how hard I tried. Once I chopped it off, immediate curl and thickness. I was so suprised!

Stef couldn’t be happier with her new hair. And with 4 ponytails of eleven inches each, she is going to make a child very happy, too.

Kelsey’s Highlights

As previously posted in this post, my sister came in to Studio 9 the other night to change up her color a bit.

Kelsey had natural dark brown hair (looks even black to the untrained eye) and she wanted to lighten up her look a bit for the warmer months to come, without going an entire shade lighter.

Kelsey did not want a lot of upkeep and wanted a very natural look.

I did very fine slickes throughout her layers of a very nice chesnut color.

Kelsey’s highlights– to come tonight!!

My sister is coming into the salon tonight to update her look for the summer months ahead.

Kelsey has very dark hair naturally. As much as she loves her color, she wants to lighten up her look a bit without doing anything too drastic.

I want to add in a few very subtle and simple highlights that will not be too obvious, and not at all stripey. Very fine and natural, like Rachel Bilson’s color below.

The best part is that it will brighten up Kelsey’s hair and will work veyr well with her features and skin tone. It will also give her hair more dimension, showing off her layers more.

Pictures to come after tonight!!
