Zac Posen is known for his glamorous runways, and for Fall 2013 he paired his red-carpet-worthy frocks with crimped chignons and deep berry lips. The updos, according to key hairstylist Luigi Murenu for John Frieda, offered a sense of lightness when paired with the gowns. And as for the makeup, artist Kabuki for MAC described it as an almost reverse smoky eye, inspired by the supermodels of the '90s. A brick-red lip punctuated the look. We went backstage at Posen's show (set at the famed and gilded Plaza Hotel) to watch a model go through hair and makeup from start to finish. Watch and see how the posh look came together.
If Victoria Beckham were to have a beauty motto, we'd have to assume it would be "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." But the designer, who is known for her tried-and-true hair and makeup, shook things up this weekend while judging the International Woolmark Prize Grand Final in London. Going for glam, Victoria swept her hair into a high, big-time bun with lots of volume at her crown. It's a different look than her usual stick-straight and down hairstyle, so what's your take on Victoria's updo?

Even though hair oil is expected to be a little bit, well, oily, here is a way to use it without getting limp and greasy strands. Enter: SoftSheen Carson's Optimum Alma Legend Billion Hair Potion ($10). More of a serum than an oil, this product melts into the hair and scalp, leaving no residue behind. Plus, the eyedropper applicator ensures that you get the product just where you need it and not all over your hands (and face). But the standout ingredient in this elixir is amla oil from India, a key component in ayurvedic rituals to remedy hair loss. To make the amla extract, the fruit is soaked in sesame and coconut oils, which means, in turn, you're getting the benefits of vitamin C, antioxidants, and proteins. Perhaps it's time your hair booked an ayurvedic spa experience.
