Kate Walsh (46) in side swept curls wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan taupe gown and Borgioni rose gold snake ring to the FX Networks Upfront screening of ‘Fargo’ at SVA Theater on April 9, 2014 in New York City. I vacillate on how I feel about this hairstyle and the dress. What do you think?

US First Lady Michelle Obama (50) wearing Doves by Doron Paloma earrings and a Doves by Doron Paloma ring to the 2014 Governors Dinner in the State Dining Room of the White House February 23, 2014. I thought Michelle Obama looked cute in bangs, but I think this hairstyle is more “First Lady”.

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).

Signs of Aging Hair & How to Defy Them

[ 120 ] December 16, 2013 |

Defy your age and turn back the clock

signs of aging  Hair

How to Defy Signs of Aging Hair

I am partnering with Pantene to let you know what their experts have to say about aging hair. Pantene has a new product line called Age Defy. It’s exciting! Pantene has worked over a ten year period to develop it’s first and only line of anti-aging products to help you fight all the problems as your hair ages. The benefits Pantene’s NEW Age Defy can offer you are:

  • reduces breakage
  • prevents split ends
  • controls frizz
  • controls unruly grays
  • minimizes lackluster color
  • minimizes a thin look
  • minimizes dryness

signs of aging  Hair

Pantene’s Age Defy Line Products: Pantene Age Defy Shampoo($8.99), Pantene Age Defy Conditioner ($8.99), Pantene Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment ($18.99), Pantene Age Defy Rejuvenating Hydration Masque ($12.99)

What the Chief Blonde did

faux Bob

The Chief Blonde sports a faux bob designed by her stylist, Alyssa Bratton of Andrew Marc Salons, Rochester Hills, MI.

In order to immerse myself in the Age Defy experience, I read some of the tips from Patene’s Celebrity Stylist Danilo. They might help you deal with your aging hair as well:

o   A great haircut and a good hair color, preferably one with the least amount of chemicals, is sure to take years off your look.

o   Longer hair on older women can sometimes make faces appear elongated – as we age, we are fighting gravity and this goes for hair too!  Older heads of hair look great with short, geometric cuts.

o   Using anti-aging hair products, such as Pantene Pro-V Age Defy doesn’t necessarily mean you’re losing your hair or addressing a sometimes taboo issue. This collection can be used as a preventative measure to keep you looking and feeling confident about your hair every day.

o   The Pantene Pro-V Age Defy Daily Thickening Treatment is such a great product because it has cumulative benefits. Not only does this product thicken the diameter of hair strands, making hair appear fuller, but it can also be used as a root lifter. It’ll leave hair softer and shinier which will make you look younger.

o   You should start any hair style with a clean base, so be sure to use the Pantene Pro-V Age Defy Shampoo and Conditioner regimen in conjunction with the rest of the Age Defy collection for maximum benefits.

o   Sweeping hair away from your face is a great way to look 10 years younger.

o   Want to create a youthful looking ponytail? Instead of using an elastic, pull large pieces of hair to one side of your head and pin them loosely behind your ear. This will make your crown look fuller and thicker. This also pulls hair away from the face to expose your neck and collarbone to make you feel sexy and youthful.

Before and AfterI discussed these styling tips with my stylist, Alyssa Bratton of Andrew Marc salon in Rochester Hills, MI (book her, she’s great!). I am way too much of a chicken at this point to cut my hair short, but I did think it would be fun to try a shorter hair style as suggested by Danilo. Alyssa suggested a Faux Bob as inspired by this post from the blog “A Beautiful Mess”. Here’s what we came up with.

Faux Bob

The Age Defy products that were helpful in creating this look were the Pantene Age Defy Shampoo, Pantene Age Defy Conditioner, and the Pantene Age Defy Rejuvenating Hydration Masque. I feel like they really helped me deal with dryness, breakage and frizz. Since I have turned 50, my hair is SOOOOOO frizzy! You can’t see any frizz now! Turn back the clock on your hair!

How about some Pantene Age Defy products for yourself?

Helen Mirren Style Icon! Outfits Modeled by Women over 45

[ 10 ] July 12, 2013 |

Helen Mirren Rocks it in Blue For Jay Leno

Helen Mirren Style Icon (67) appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote her movie Red-2. Helen is wearing royal-blue Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2013 three-quarter-sleeved dress with an embellished neckline and gathered waist. Photo courtesy of D’Orazio & Associates

Helen Mirren, Who doesn’t want to be her?

When I grow up I want to be Helen Mirren!  There I said it.  I have always had a deep admiration of Ms. Mirren’s acting chops and her style.  She is delicate and strong at the same time.  She’s all women and bad-ass too!

Helen Mirren, have you heard of her now?

Every picture I see of Helen Mirren Style Icon, I think WOW!  She looks even more stunning than the last picture I saw!  In the picture above, she appeared on Jay Leno to promote her new movie Red-2.  Here’s a clip that I found on Youtube if you want to see it.  This move stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones among others:

Look pretty exciting right?  Did you see what a total Woman of Steel she is?  I must say I do love Sir Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta Jones as well!

 Helen Mirren Reveals it all to Jay Leno

Helen is wearing Doves by Doron Paloma Royal Lapis blue ring ($4155)  and  Royal Lapis drop earrings ($5350)  to the Tonight Show July 11, 2013 Photo courtesy of D’Orazio & Associates

Helen Mirren breaks the Stereotypes

Just like her stunning nude Cole Haan pumps that Ms. Mirren is rocking in the top Photo, she continues to break the “Old Lady” stereotype on every front.  (Have I said I want to be just like her when I grow up yet??  Still do…even more!)

During Mirren’s  interview with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, Helen is funny, classy and adorable.  Topics discussed include why she prefers to wear “stripper” shoes to premieres, why she asks NO ONE if she can dye her hair, and how her character in Reds-1 was inspired by Martha Stewart!

Top 10 Helen Mirren facts you may not know:

  1. Helen Mirren just missed being a Baby Boomer, she was born in 1945
  2. Mirren has won an Academy Award, four BAFTAs, three Golden Globes, four Emmy Awards, and two Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Awards
  3. Helen Mirren is a Dame
  4. Helen Mirren is 5′ 4″ (the same as the Chief Blonde!)
  5. Ms. Mirren is married to Taylor Edwin Hackford who is an American film director, and the current president of the Directors Guild of America
  6. She has portrayed three British queens in different films and television series (Elizabeth I, Elizabeth II and Queen Charlotte)
  7. Mirren was born Helen Lydia Mironoff. But in the 1950s, her father changed the family name to Mirren.
  8. Helen lived with actor Liam Neeson (Star Wars)  during the early 1980s
  9. Helen Mirren has no recorded children
  10. Mirren was on the fifty best-dressed over 50s list created by the Guardian in March 2013

Do you want to be Helen Mirren, when you grow up?
