sarah-hyland-peoples-choice-awards-2015-ftr1

Awards Season kicked off with this week’s People’s Choice Awards and Sarah Hyland is our pick for the best beauty look. Parading along the red carpet in a shimmering Christian Siriano dress and perfectly matched metallic eye shadow and nude lip, Modern Family’s cheeky little minx looks all grown up. Dyed to a light golden shade that naturally suits her complexion, and with lengthening extensions, her flowing side-parted locks are artfully placed to spotlight her big round eyes and show off the youthful femininity of her neck and shoulders. Learn how to create your own version of Sarah’s hairstyle in the notes.

bun-1

Who doesn’t love a low bun? It’s a great mix of sophisticated and cool; a bit uptown and a bit downtown all in one. Usually I love a less-than-thirty-second-version-of-gather-and-coil-and-secure; and I keep it in my locker for everyday wear or changing my look from day to night. But it’s also good to have a special version for occasions and moods that require something a bit more urbane, which is why I love this chic and stylish low bun.

Highlights are in for 2015, bringing back bold contrast to strands. Placement underneath the top layer of hair prevents stripes at the root, adding brightness to the interior of the hair. Classic foil highlights add shine and dimension, for a thicker, healthier look. Minimal placement and thin sections keep the look fresh, while soft gold maximizes gloss. Click the style notes for recommended formulas and tips on foil placement. –– Laura Martin
