Mila Kunis, Nikki Reed & Amanda Seyfried's Valentine's Day LooksLovely Lashes

This Valentine’s Day give your clients a sultry sweeping lash line like actress Mila Kunis. According to Leah Lynch, 2012’s Most Natural Look Lash Artist winner and Certified NovaLash stylist, you can achieve this look on your clients without applying any mascara, instead she recommends using NovaLash eye extensions.

TRY IT: Apply black platinum bond adhesive using NovaLash’s physician developed technique of combining a least three different lengths of curls. This technique will make the eyes look wider and give a cat-eye effect.










Mila Kunis, Nikki Reed & Amanda Seyfried's Valentine's Day LooksSleek Bun

If your clients are looking for a sleek and structured look, try sweeping their hair back into a sophisticated bun or wrap. Stylist Mara Roszak created this particular look for actress Nikki Reed at the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part Two movie premiere in Los Angeles.

TRY IT: Blow out hair with a boar bristle round brush. To tame any flyaways, apply a dime sized amount of Wella Professionals Smooth Brilliance by rubbing into the palms of your hands and through hair, starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots. For heat protection, use Wella Professional’s Thermal Image on dry hair. Pull hair tight to the nape of the neck and secure it with a Bungee elastic band. Holding the ponytail, loop the hair under the elastic to create a small bun and secure with bobby pins. Take the rest of the hair and wrap it around the elastic. To finish the look, mist all over with finishing spray.








Mila Kunis, Nikki Reed & Amanda Seyfried's Valentine's Day LooksTimeless Beauty

Amanda Seyfried’s bouncy waves seen at the World Premiere of Les Miserables at Odeon Leicester Square in London, is great to try on your clients for a special Valentine’s Day evening or event.  Moroccanoil Artistic Director Antonio Corral Calero has the details on how to re-create the look:

TRY IT: Shampoo and condition the hair, then apply Moroccanoil Treatment from mid-hair to ends to even out hair's porosity, condition and add shine. Apply mousse and dry hair with a medium round brush, starting from the top and front of head. Pin each section dried into roller-like set as you work. Release the pins on the right side, use a medium-sized curling iron and roll under and down.  Roller-pin each curl as you move to the next. Release the roller-set on the right side once it cools, then proceed to release set on remainder of the hair. Make a part on the left, brush hair smoother to the right, while leaving waves on the left. Place hair behind the left ear so everything falls to the right.
