HAIR & MAKEUP
“The SAG Awards, the Academy Awards, the Grammys — they all set the beauty trends for a year,” said stylist Nikol Johnson of the Fresh Beauty Studio in Fort Lauderdale. “Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon — socialites going to formal events always bring in pictures of them.
“What stood out for me [at the Oscars] were people like Cameron Diaz who had lots of volume in her hair even though it was down and she had very simple makeup: a pink lip and just the right amount of eye makeup so that her features really popped. And Penelope Cruz who wore a smoky eye, but it was much more approachable.”
From the Golden Globes, Johnson points to Kate Hudson, “for a look that could go to the prom; very fresh, not overdone.”
“The messy updo is still happening, but also a lot of stars are wearing their hair down but still styled,” she continues.
The hottest thing? Hair embellishments, she says, such as hairpieces with feathers or crystals as seen on Naomi Watts, for example. “It’s whimsical and sexy. It shows more of your personality.”
