  • Give Your French Braid a 3-in-1 Twist like Mad Men's January Jones!

    While at the Mad Men premiere, January Jones did something so very unlike her character Betty Draper Francis, a gal who clings to her perfectly placed blonde bob and minimalistic cosmetics routine like none other. What did the actress (who recently admitted she's sort of a prankster) do? She rocked this twisted French braid-with blue top eyeliner and a gold shimmer lower lash line, we might add.

    January Jones

    What's really cool about this pretty springtime braid is that it's actually three-in-one. A trio of braiding techniques was used to achieve the undone and twisted design that so intricately shows off and exposes her dark roots (there is major beauty envy going on right now). Wella Professional Celebrity Stylist Ambassador, Andy lecompte started off with a French braid, adding in rope braids and completing the look by braiding the three together to create one.

    Want to try it at home? You'll need a few elastics, a clean head of hair, and a straightener. Remember, it's meant to be a

  • Get Lena Headey's Game of Thrones Premiere Look

    Lena Headey killed it on the red carpet of the Game of Thrones premiere in New York on Tuesday night, looking chic in a Jenny Packham gown, Neil Lane jewels, and a textured bob. Dove celebrity hair stylist Mark Townsend styled the actress' tresses for the big night, explaining, "For the Game of Thrones premiere, it was all about relaxed glamour for Lena Headey. I loved her Jenny Packham dress and felt it was very pretty yet edgy, so I wanted her hair to have the same feeling."

    Lena Headey

    Mark shares how to get the look:

    - I started by applying a large dollop of Dove Oxygen Moisture Leave In Foam to her damp hair and scrunched it dry with my hands and the diffuser on the blowdryer. I love keeping as much of Lena's natural wave in the hair, and this foam doesn't weigh the hair down or get crunchy and it gives the hair tons of volume.

    - Next, I gave her a deep side part and sprayed Sally Hershberger Salon Texture Blast Spray all over to give the hair great texture and a light hold.

  • Gretchen Rossi's Life-Changing Cures for Oily Skin

    Every week, our celebrity beauty and fashion pro Gretchen Rossi shares some of her expert tips just for readers! See her latest Get Glam with Gretchen blog post below.

    Today's blog was inspired from a tweet I got from a Get Glam with Gretchen fan who struggles with oily skin and wanted to know what are the best things to do to help remedy it.

    Gretchen Rossi

    So many people struggle with this, so this is a great question! Many believe that they must abstain from oil-based products because they have oily skin. However, you might be surprised to learn that more oil might just be the solution…

  • The Face's Anne V on Kendall Jenner's Modeling Career: "I Think She Can Go Very Far"

    She may be a newcomer to the coaching side of The Face, but with ten years worth of Sports Illustrated swimsuits to claim, a notable fashion week runway career, (she just worked the catwalk for Phillip Lim!) and a name of great industry influence, Anne V should start calling herself a legend. We caught up with the modeling mentor and got the scoop on the new season of The Face, the "it" girls to look out for, and much more.


    OK!: What do we have to look forward to this season?
    Anne V:
    It's going to be a great season. Lydia and I have joined the cast, so that brings a lot of new energy and a lot of different styles of mentoring. We are all very different in the way we coach, so our energy together is truly fun to watch. Plus, we're all very strong women! I think we will do anything for our girls. We're very competitive, so there is a lot of competition in the show.

    OK!: How would you describe your coaching method?

  • Make the Most of Your Mousse for Amazing Curls

    For curly girls, finding the right styling mousse can be life-changing. But sometimes a great product isn't enough-applying it the right way can maximize its effectiveness. Herbal Essences celebrity hair stylist Charles Baker Strahan explains the best way to apply a product like the line's new Naked Volumizing Souffle.

    • Apply Herbal Essences Naked Volumizing Soufflé to very wet hair.

    • Put a golf ball size amount into the palm of your hands and then rub your palms together to emulsify the product. Use your palms almost as your palette-dip your fingers into your palm to pick up the product and then rub it at the scalp. The roots require the most product to lift and provide volume.

    •Wring out the remaining moisture from the hair, allowing the water to carry the product evenly through the hair.

The genius behind his look and a ton of unforgettable characters on Saturday Night Live?

    1. There Isn't Just One Costume Closet
    "We have a couple different storage closets around the 30 Rock building where we shoot Saturday Night Live. The crazy costumes are sent to a storage facility in Brooklyn. And by crazy, I mean the big foam costumes and things that are too big for regular use-things like all the Justin Timberlake foam costumes from 'OmeletteVille,'" says Tom.
