From floral headbands to Kool-Aid-colored strands, the hairstyles seen at the music festival of the year are always worth talking about. But, my favorite looks from this year’s Coachella are on the more conservative side. Fun, but totally wearable even outside of a two-weekend-long party.
Lea Michele’s subtle cornrow braid is a great way to add interest to an otherwise basic down ‘do. Create an extreme deep side part and separate out a two-inch section of hair just opposite your part.

Today marks the first day of spring, so what better way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather (for the east coast, anyway) than with a beachy hair how-to. I love this natural-looking, messy-in-a-good-way beachy hairstyle Renato Campora created for Kate Winslet’s Los Angeles Premiere of Divergent. Here’s how to recreate it:
Step 1: Apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Building Mousse, $6.50 on clean, wet hair.
Step 2: Apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion, $6.50, concentrating on the roots to create volume, and blow-dry your hair.
Step 3: Once your hair is fully dry, use a one-and-a-half-inch curling iron to create voluminous waves by wrapping your hair around the iron.
Step 4: After letting your waves cool completely, finished the look with John Frieda Luxurious Volume All Day Hold Hairspray, $6.50 to add long-lasting volume to your waves.
Twitter was all a buzz when the lovely Sara Bareilles performed with Carol King at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. A memorable collaboration for sure.

With award season in full swing, there are so many makeup hits (and yes, misses) to talk about. Claire Danes has been wearing many of the hits — in my opinion. She went for sultry smoky eyes at the SAG Awards and an of-the-moment orangey lip for the 2014 Producers Guild Awards. Orange lipstick is definitely one of the looks to try right now thanks to the fact that it was seen all over the Spring 2014 runways. And while Danes isn’t the only celeb to wear the trend on the red carpet, her look was one of the best thanks to makeup artist Matin Maulawizada. I know I sound like a broken record, but I also worked (and had doggy playdates) with him back in my magazine editing days. Here are the Dior Beauty products he used to create the look:
Dior Capture Totale Dream Skin, $110
Dior Capture Totale Triple-Correcting Serum Foundation in #020, $82
Dior Glow Maximizer Light Boosting Primer, $42
Diorblush Trianon Edition in Corail Bagatelle, $43
