Haute Hair

March 24, 2009

Let’s face facts-you don’t have the money, the time or the opportunity to walk around looking like a celebrity. They have stylists, makeup artists, chefs and personal trainers. You, on the other hand, have deadlines, dirty laundry and a mortgage to pay. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look like a celebrity now and then. All it takes is a few great styling products from Intelligent Nutrients, a bit of spare time and someplace fabulous to go after you’re finished.

She may be Ugly Betty on TV, but on the red carpet America Ferrera is undeniably gorgeous.  To copy her voluminous curls spray some of the Organic Volumizing Spray onto the roots of your towel-dried hair. Then apply a bit of the Organic Styling Crème from the roots to the ends of your hair. Fluff hair with your fingers as you blow it dry. Part hair to the side and twist big sections of your hair around a large-barreled curling iron. Hold for two or three seconds and release. Add extra shine and prevent your hair from frizzing by lightly smoothing some of the Organic Finishing Gloss onto the curls.

Waves are soft and sultry on anyone, but they look particularly modern on short hair. Copy Gwyneth Paltrow’s look by applying a quarter-sized amount of the Organic Styling Gel to your palm, rub your hands together and then evenly distribute the gel throughout your damp hair. Blow hair dry and then take two-inch sections of hair and wrap them around a large-barreled curling iron. Make the waves look natural by alternating the direction you wrap the hair into the iron. Finish by running your fingers through the waves to loosen them and spray on a bit of the Organic Perfect Hold Hair Spray for staying power.

Beyonce has naturally curly hair that looks just as great straight. Get it yourself with the help of a flat iron. If you don’t have one yet, make sure to get one with ceramic plates, which are gentler than other options. First protect hair by spraying it with the Organic Leave-In Conditioner. Follow it with the Organic Styling Crème. Then blow dry or let hair dry naturally. Make sure hair is completely dry and then take small sections of hair and clamp the iron as close to the scalp as you can get. Very slowly pull the iron down to the ends. After each section has been straightened add shine with the Organic Finishing Gloss.

If an easy updo is what you’re looking for Michelle William’s gorgeous style is a great one to copy. Start by working a bit of Organic Styling Gel into damp hair and blow dry it smooth with a large round brush. Make a side part and then secure your hair into a low side ponytail. Next lightly mist two-inch sections of hair with the Organic Perfect Hold Hair Spray and wrap it around a curling iron. Once all of the hair is curled, pin the curls up. Play with the size of the sections you pin up to get a variety of different looks.

Short hair can look just as glamorously chic and Reese Witherspoon proves it. To get her easy, sleek style, apply a small amount of the Organic Styling Crème to damp hair to help tame frizz. Dry hair in sections using a large paddle brush directing the blow dryer from the roots to the ends in a downward motion. This helps the hair cuticles lay flat for a sleek, polished look. Once hair is dry tame strays and add shine with a few drops of the Organic Finishing Gloss.
