A Decade of Oscars’ Leading Ladies with Pureology

As we look toward the highly-anticipated Academy Awards that will take place on Sunday, February 22, we find ourselves reflecting back on those who have paved the way to shape the film industry that we all know and love today. Rounding up favorite hairstyles from the past ten years, Pureology Artistic Ambassador Sandra Joseph shares below “a decade of leading ladies” and how to recreate their most renowned red carpet styles.

 

And the award goes to…

Helen Mirren

2007: Queen of the red carpet Helen Mirren accepts the Oscar for “Best Actress” for her role in “The Queen”

  1. On damp hair, lightly mist Pureology Colour Fanatic for colour and heat protection. To add volume and grip, distribute Root Lift spray hair mousse from scalp to ends.
  2. Begin blowdrying roots with a Denman brush to create lift. Continue with a medium round brush to finish the mid-shaft and ends.
  3. Create a right side part and lightly backcomb crown to mid-shaft. Apply a mist of Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray all over, then smooth the surface with a soft brush.
  4. Tuck the hair behind the ear and finish with a layer of Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for a light flexible hold.

Marion Cotillard

2008: French Actress Marion Cotillard wins “Best Actress” for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in “La Vie En Rose”

  1. For a great foundation with shape and shine, blow dry damp hair with a blend of Pureology Nourishing Nectar sculpting gel and Cuticle Polisher shine serum.
  2. Part hair on the left side and with a large iron and begin curling large off base sections. Add a light mist of Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray with each curl for added shine and hold. Secure curls with clips as you work around the head.
  3. When you reach the right side around the face, take a smaller section and curl with a medium-sized iron for more defined curls. Secure with clips and allow to cool.
  4. For definition and memory, emulsify a small amount of Anti Breakage Twist shine texturizer throughout fingers and smooth left side behind the ear.
  5. Scrunch another application of Anti Breakage Twist shine texturizer to the right side to further enhance the curls, leaving them bouncy all evening long.

Sandra Bullock

2010: Sandra Bullock wins “Best Actress” for her role in “The Blind Side”

  1. To prime and protect Sandra’s beautiful hair, mist Colour Fanatic on damp hair.
  2. Apply Silk Bodifier volumizing mousse from roots to end for volume and fullness. Blow dry with a medium round brush concentrating on bending the ends.
  3. Create a deep long left side part. Smooth all the hair on the top of the head behind the right ear and mist Supreme Control high hold hairspray to lock in place.
  4. Place remainder of hair over the right shoulder and finish with Supreme Control high hold hairspray for an evening of fantastic hold.

 Jennifer Lawrence

2013: Jennifer Lawrence takes home the gold for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook”

  1. Layer Pureology Root Lift spray hair mousse from roots to end on dry hair and blowdry for volume and texture. Apply a small amount of Density Definer medium hold crème wax all over dry hair for hold and definition.
  2. Gather all the hair from the back and secure into a low pony. Tease the ponytail and create a low bun.
  3. Loosely gather hair from the left side, twist the ends, wrap around the bun and secure with pins. Repeat on the right side.
  4. Rake fingers through the top section, twist the ends and wrap around the bun.
  5. Finish with a few short bursts of Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for added shine and hold.

    The “Hollywood Film Awards” today announced that multi-talented Academy and Emmy Award nominated, Golden Globe Award-winning actress, Grammy Award-winning musician and talk show host Queen Latifah, will host the inaugural broadcast of the HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS, live from the Hollywood Palladium Friday, November 14, 2014 (8:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.  The “Hollywood Film Awards” has recognized excellence in the art of cinema and filmmaking for 17 years, honoring some of the world’s biggest stars. They are considered the official launch of the awards season.

“I’m honored to be a part of such a legendary award show,” stated Latifah. “The HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS have been a staple in the awards season for years, and I’m excited to be the first host to bring them to television!”

“Queen Latifah is the real deal. She is a triple threat – she can act, she can sing, she can dance – she is beloved by audiences across multiple genres and she entertains millions of people every day,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President of Specials, Music and Live Events for CBS. “We look forward to having her as our host for the inaugural broadcast of the HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS.”

“Queen Latifah is a world-class entertainer,” said Carlos de Abreu, Founder and Executive Producer of the Hollywood Film Awards. “From film and music to television, her humor, quick wit and ability to entertain live audiences make her the perfect choice to host the HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS.”

Latifah was anointed hip-hop’s first lady of rap at the age of 19 with the release of her highly successful debut album, “All Hail The Queen.” She went on to release multiple Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling albums, and in 2006 she became the first hip-hop artist to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Latifah has enjoyed similar success in television and film. Her first TV series was “Living Single,” and she has starred in nearly 40 films, including, “Jungle Fever,” “Living Out Loud,” “The Bone Collector,” “Chicago,” “Hairspray,” “Bringing Down the House,” “The Secret Life of Bees,” “Last Holiday,” “Beauty Shop” and “Joyful Noise.” Also, she executive produced and starred in the HBO true-life drama, “Life Support,” for which she won a Golden Globe award, a SAG award and an Emmy nomination. Her production company, Flavor Unit Entertainment, was founded in 1993 with partner Shakim Compere. The Miami-based studio currently has several films and television series in production, including VH1’s “Single Ladies” and the upcoming The CW reality show, “The Star Next Door.” Additionally, Latifah has written two best-selling books on self-esteem and designed a successful clothing and beauty line for HSN. Currently, she is the host of “The Queen Latifah Show,” a daily syndicated talk show, which she is producing with Shakim Compere and Overbrook Entertainment’s Will Smith, Jada Smith and James Lassiter.

Over its 17 year history, the Hollywood Film Awards has celebrated some of the biggest names in film.  Previous honorees include:  Amy Adams, Ben Affleck, Annette Bening, Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Glenn Close, Russell Crowe, Penelope Cruz,  Robert DeNiro, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kirk Douglas, Robert Duvall, Clint Eastwood, Jodie Foster,  Morgan Freeman, Richard Gere, Dustin Hoffman, Anthony Hopkins, Angelina Jolie, Diane Keaton, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence, Jack Lemon, Matthew McConaughey, Julianne Moore, Sean Penn, Joaquin Phoenix, Julia Roberts, Geoffrey Rush, Susan Sarandon,  Hilary Swank, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Naomi Watts, Forest Whitaker, Michelle Williams and Robin Williams among others.

MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS UNVEILS EXCITING, INTERACTIVE OFFERINGS FOR CORPORATE EVENT PLANNERS, SMALL GROUPS

MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS

MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS1

Interactive, entertaining and innovative! What else could an event planner ask for? Well, perhaps for Gwen Stefani, Sandra Bullock or Nick Fury to show up. At the all NEW Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, all this and more is possible for corporate event planners and small groups.

Special Events Manager Michael Tapia and his team do everything they can to create events that are memorable and most of all, world-famous fun. Tapia explains, “Interactive! That’s what guests love most about Madame Tussauds. They’re interacting with our more than 100 wax figures, mingling with live chefs as they cook and journey from one uniquely-themed room to another within the attraction. This is the liveliest place in Las Vegas for an event or party.”

At Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, there is more than 30,000 square feet of space available throughout eight themed-rooms, including the brand new Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience,  which make for a fully immersive and entertainment event. Each room can hold approximately 120 guests reception-style or up to 75 seated. Beginning with Club Tussauds showcasing an array of stars including Leonardo DiCaprio and Britney Spears. Additional interactive rooms span sports (think slam dunking basketballs with Shaquille O’Neal) to television (sit at Larry King’s desk) to music (sing for Simon Cowell and rap with Tupac Shakur) to film (wreak havoc in the “Hangover” suite with Bradley Cooper) and celebrate Las Vegas like no other by visiting with city icons including Celine Dion, Blue Man Group and Criss Angel. The experience concludes with the Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience and figures such as Nick Fury.

With all of these lavishly decorated and well-lit rooms, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas makes it easy for planners to create an event guests will never forget.

Adds Tapia, “There’s nothing we can’t do for our guests. Rove from one room to the next with different-themed food and drinks. Need an open bar? We absolutely can provide that. Our studio team can also customize a ‘back of house’ experience and incorporate how figures are created and maintained. We also welcome a variety of events including corporate team-building, brand launches and cocktail parties. Attendees can play video games in the sports rooms or go on scavenger hunts throughout the attraction with fun facts about the figures serving as clues. For more upscale events, experience everything from champagne chandeliers to live tables. It’s Las Vegas, after all, so themes can range from the classic Rat Pack to a trendy night club on the Strip.”

The event itself can feature its own branding. Particularly for buyouts, there are several screens which can display corporate logos, special messages and images. WiFi is also available to all groups no matter the size.

For departing guests, special gift bags can be created courtesy of Madame Tussauds Las Vegas’ incredible gift shop selling memorabilia and souvenirs. Guests can also receive Madame Tussauds’ branded champagne offered either in large bottles or as splits.

Madame Tussauds is open 365 days of the year and opens at 10 a.m. To book an event, contact Michael Tapia at (702) 862-7805 or Events@MadameTussaudsLV.com.

Las Vegas’ longest-running headliner, Frank Marino was surprised during his performance at The Quad Resort & Casino Tuesday night with a marriage proposal from his longtime partner, associate producer Alex Schechter.

The couple, who celebrates their 20th anniversary together, July 4, has yet to announce wedding plans, but one thing is certain: marriage most certainly won’t be a drag for these two.
