Erin Wasson at the Premiere of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

At the NYC premiere of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, actress Erin Wasson showed off a stylish, sleek high pony, courtesy of John Frieda International Creative Consultant Harry Josh.
To accomplish this look, Josh used John Frieda’s 3-Day Straight 
priced at $9.99 at drugstores nationwide.

This heat-activated, semi-permanent styling spray not only fosters flawlessly straight strands, but also lets women hold onto the straight style they work hard to perfect.  “What I love about it is that the treatment leaves hair sleek and smooth, not stiff,” says Josh.  “It’s flexible enough to restyle without shampooing, which is crucial from a stylist perspective.”

When applied to damp hair, the weightless spray provides heat protection as it blocks out frizz and enhances straightening results, locking in sleek, glossy texture for up to 3 days.

Demi Lovato Goes Pink! Get The Look At Home With Streekers!

Another celeb goes pink! On Saturday, Demi Lovato tweeted, "Loving my pink hair and obsessed with my new Topshop outfit and Chloe Green shoes!!!!" to fans with a photo of her posing backstage at X Factor. The pop singer debuted her candy hued locks at the X Factor judging table. She later tweeted that fellow judge and show creator, Simon Cowell, was a fan of the pink hair!
Looking to get a similar pop of color for Summer? Try out Streekers for $11.95 to make an impact with trend setting streaks that wash out the next day.
Get The Look At Home With Streekers!

With a rainbow of shades, Streekers allow you to change your look in an instant. Each candy-colored highlighting hue is true, temporary hair color.  Streekers shows up vibrantly on blonde or highlighted hair, and as subtle highlights on darker hair.

STEP 1: Run mousse or gel through your hair and style into a sleek high ponytail, secure with an elastic. Keep in mind that mousse, gel, and other styling products can be used prior to applying Streekers but hair spray should be used after application!

STEP 2: Run the sponge applicator along the tips of your hair to deposit color. The look may not be as full and vibrant as Demi’s permanent dip-dye, but the streaks of color will give you a similar fun style that will wash out the next time you shampoo!

STEP 3: Take one small section of hair from underneath your ponytail and highlight it in your desired Streeker color from top to bottom.

STEP 4: Wrap that brightly highlighted piece of hair around the base of the ponytail until you have completely hid the elastic. Secure with bobby pins.

STEP 5
: Finish with a light layer of hair spray (which can be used over Streekers!)  for extra hold.

STEP 6: To remove color, simply shampoo as usual!

Wilfred Season 1 - New Deleted Scene

Everyone else sees a dog, but Ryan sees a bong-ripping, beer-chugging, foul-mouthed Australian bloke in a furry suit (played by the outrageously funny Jason Gann.)

The Magic Within

In Mirror Mirror, Snow White gained the confidence she needed to fight for what she believed in.  We'll create a tip guide inspired by the lessons Snow White learned in the film, to help readers also discover the magic within them. From easy things like, saying please to fighting your own battles, you'll be reaping the benefits of your inner magic in no time at all!


1. Don't Let Other's Get You Down

Snow's evil stepmother was constantly trying to hold her back from being her own person and exploring the world, and kept her sheltered in her room for most of her early life. But we all know that the real reason that the Queen was so unkind to her step-daughter was due to jealousy, which is something that can occur in anyone's life - not just royalty! So when others try to hurt your feelings, or say things that are unkind, just keep your head up and know that you are a star!


2. Be Proud of What You've Got!

The seven outcast bandits that Snow meets couldn't be more different than her - or each other, for that matter! Napoleon is the romantic, Chuckles is constantly in hysterics, and Butcher is the gang's noteable "wild man", whose short fuse is only rivaled by his height. However, all of the bandits stay true to who they are, which is good advice for people of any age to adhere to.

Mind your Ps and Qs

When Snow comes upon Prince Alcott and Charles Renbock caught in one of the bandit's traps, she can't help but laugh at their situation. However, she graciously offers to assist them in getting down...as long as they say please first, of course! One of the most universal signs of having good manners is always to remember to say "please" and "thank you"; those three little words can go a long way in showing others that you appreciate what they do for you.


Take a Trip Outside of Your Comfort Zone

At the start of Mirror Mirror, Snow was extremely sheltered, naive, and couldn't do a lot on her own for lack of her exposure to the outside world. However, with the help of Grimm, Wolf, and her other newfound friends, she transforms from a timid, quiet girl into brave and skillful fighter. This just goes to show that anything is possible - even accomplished musicians and famous athletes had to start somewhere, so don't be afraid to take that leap of faith and try something new!

Where to purchase: You are able to purchase the Mirror Mirror [Blu-ray/ DVD + Digital Copy] from Amazon for $29.86.
