Cindy Crawford Hairstyle for Women over 45 George the Salon

Oprah Winfrey opened up the “Oprah’s Lifeclass” studio to Cindy Crawford (48), making her the first ever guest teacher on the series. For her hosting duties at the social lab studio in Chicago, celebrity hairstylist and owner of George the salon, George Gonzalez traveled to HARPO Studios to style the star’s hair for the live episode on April 2nd, 2014.

“I made sure to round brush starting at the bottom to build weight,” explains Gonzalez. “Then, I finished the blowout by styling the sections at the top to minimize volume. The result is soft and natural.”

George the salon’s Blowout Tips

1. Hot tools are often the number one culprit for frizz, especially if a heat protectant is never used while styling.

2. For a blowout, women often put the dryer directly against the hair because they think that’s the way to get it straight. This why there is damage and frizz, especially when paired with a metal brush.

3. The worst thing we can do is use old blow dryers or not cleaning out their air vents. Due to lint or hair build up, air cannot flow through therefore the pressure goes down and too much heat is used to style.

4. If one part does not look good, spray it with water and redo it. Never keep going over it dry. This will make it worse. Not re-wetting hair could be the reason most women have bad hair days- because they try too hard and then over-dry their hair.

5. A dusting of dry shampoo at your roots will really kick start the staying power of your blowout.

6. To further preserve your style, sweep tresses up and use large bobby pins to create loosely sculpted pin curls before you go to bed. 4-6 large sections will do the trick. When you release and shake out in the morning, you feel like you just left your stylist’s chair.

Getting Blonde, Fashionista Style Hop

[ 4 ] January 28, 2014 |

Sometimes Fashion is about the Hair!

Welcome to the Getting Blonde edition of the Fashionista Style Hop! Occasionally, we need to touch up certain things in our life..for me, this time, it was my hair!

Getting Blonde

The Chief Blonde is wearing Mountain Khaki Jacket ($155), Karina Dresses Josie Dress with 3/4 sleeve ($138, on sale now for $60), Belt (rummage sale find)  Hair styled by Alyssa Bratton, Andrew Marke Salon, Rochester Hills, MI

My hair was towhead blonde (meaning almost white)  in my youth but then I turned a mousy brown. I mean really not a good color…at all. I started highlighting my hair in 8th grade and never looked back! I have been many shades of blonde, it usually depends on my colorist what shade I am currently rocking. I definitely like a whiter blonde over a golden blonde (for me).
