Jersey's finest was back in full force last night, with bigger bubbies, babies, and icy stares that would make a wild lion stop dead in its tracks. We won't admit how long we've been waiting for The Real Housewives of New Jersey to come back on, but let's just say some dinner plans may or may not have been canceled for its debut.
There is no doubt these ladies are slightly over the top, with the fake nails, serious tans, and bedazzled...everything, yet when it comes to their hair, we can't help but want to steal a tip or two from them. Maybe this just proves we've all got a little Jersey Girl in each of us. Try taking one of these tips from the ladies, we promise no one will accuse you of being from the Armpit State.
Dina might look like she could snap your neck at a moments notice, but her hair color is definitely something to stop and stare at. It's got the right amount of highlights and low lights without being too beach bunny blonde. If you're thinking about trying a similar hue, ask your colorist for a golden base, rather than a whiter one and add cooler highlights to avoid platinum hair. Opt for products sans alcohol, especially in hairspray, gel, and mousse to prevent your strands from looking too dry and most importantly, make sure you can have the dough to keep up the maintenance. Dina's not a Real Housewife for nothing!
Caroline's got the right idea, the shorter your hair is, the more difficult it would be for a girl to pull it out when the manicotti hits the fan, as they say in Jersey. Pick this choppy, razor cut if you have a strong color, like Caroline's red. Style with Pantene Pro-V Texturize! Sculpting Wax to separate hair into a chic look, as opposed to an awkward bob.
It's a little embarrassing that we find it hard to brush our hair in the morning with no children and Jacqueline has flawless, glossy waves all the time with three children, one being a newborn. If you want to mock these waves for the shore (Note: there are no beaches in Jersey, only shores. Don't be a tourist and make this mistake.) Rough dry your hair without a brush using a leave-in conditioner and a dollop of mousse. Use a large-barrel curling iron and randomly wrap a few sections. Rake your fingers through the curls immediately so they loosen up and look soft. Try this look on for free now.
Everything about Teresa is big. Her personality, her new bubbies, her desire to apply lip gloss every five minutes, and especially her hair. Avoid the crunchy, wet look and get natural looking volume with a volumizing gel (we like L'Oreal Vive Pro Glossy Volume Gel) and a defining crème like Living Proof Wave Shaping, Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Cream for Medium to Thick Hair. Apply gel to wet hair, towel dry and then add the defining crème. Dab your favorite mousse to the ends of your hair and dry using a diffuser. Touch up sections with a curling iron and spritz with a holding hairspray as the final touch. If you have thin hair, try these tips to pump up your hair.
Danielle's Sleek and Shiny Tresses:
Yes, cross her and you might end up on the bottom of the ocean with the fishes but if it's her shiny hair your looking to steal, it's all in the shampoo and conditioner. Opt for a frizz fighting formula for both and make sure to use a heat protector when drying or flat-ironing to stop frizzies. Check out which products will work best for your hair type.
