We've flipped through our copy of InStyle Hair the Special Issue three times already. We're overdue for a cut and color and this issue is a great combination of helpful summer hair tips and celebrity hair shots which we can bring with us to the salon. There's even a section on how to talk to your stylist.
Ali Larter, who stars as a modern day Glenn Close opposite Beyoncé Knowles in Obsessed, attended the launch party for the Hair issue last week. She's shown here wearing a gorgeous fuchsia Marchesa party dress and flanked by the designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman. We were smitten by Marchesa's collection at Fashion Week this winter and it isn't surprising to see how well their dresses translate to the party circuit. A handful of the dresses from the fall '09 collection were on show at the party.
Harry Josh of John Frieda International styled her hair that evening. Josh comments on his handiwork:
“The look I created for Ali emphasizes how naturally healthy and vibrant her hair is. I started by spritzing hair with Root Awakening Detangling Spray, then blow dried in sections using a natural bristle brush to maintain her hair’s own health and shine. I finished the look with a styling crème to add polish to her naturally sleek, full hair.”
We don't think summer is the best time of year to cut bangs because humidity is no friend to short layers; but Ali Larter's laid-back style makes it a tempting proposition.
