12 New Ways to Wear Your Hair This Winter

Cute New Hairstyle Idea: the Styled Pixie Haircut

Look up sexy in the dictionary and you’ll probably find Halle Berry’s short hairstyle. If you’ve got a feisty haircut like Halle, add a dime-size amount of sculpting paste such as Shu Uemura Art of Hair Shape Paste’s to freshly shampooed hair to define the layers. Take a mini flatiron to give a few pieces a little bit of a bend. If halfway through the evening you notice your cute hair deflating, keep a mini bottle of alcohol-free hand sanitizer gel to dab on to reactivate your hair prods, says celebrity hairstylist Jet Rhys.

15 Little Beauty Tricks to Try This Winter

Make hand cream your beauty BFF

If your hair’s frizzies are practically reaching the North Pole, keep a little tube of hand cream in your pocket. Rub a tiny bit on your fingers and “use it to tame any flyaways throughout the night since adding layer on top of layer of hairspray tends to look too globby,” says celebrity hairstylist Jet Rhys.

San Diego Luxe Services: What do you get when you combine a world-class colorist and image-making guru with a precision haircutter and global educator? Jet Rhys Salon in San Diego! Jet and Rhys, the salon’s co-owners, have taught on stages around the world, styled at A-list events (like the LA screening of Julia Robert’s film, “Duplicity”) and satisfied thousands of local style aficionados. Now, thanks to demand for both them and their highly trained staff members, they have recently opened a second location.

One of the best kept secrets of women with come-hither hair, Jet and Rhys frequently work behind the scenes, creating the money shots of those glossy, swingy manes for national television and print and ads of companies like Revlon, Pantene and L’Oreal. Renowned educators, they have taught other professionals on stages in Japan, Mexico, Australia, the United States and Europe, and worked for color manufacturers, including Wella and L’Oreal. Both are Vidal Sassoon trained (Jet was the salon’s former New York Color Director while Rhys is a former Vidal Sassoon Art Director), and when she worked in New York and London, Jet colored the hair of Vidal himself.

Their eclectic, creative, San Diego salon is as welcoming and relaxing for celebrities as it is for their diverse clientele. Known as the beauty destination of those in the know, it’s one of the rare salons where the staff is as highly trained in their respective specialties as they are in business, client care and etiquette.

Top 5 Celebrity Hair Color Makeovers of 2010

A new hair color can feel like a new lease on life — and nowhere can greater inspiration be found than in the glitzy red-carpet world of celebrities. We gathered the top five hair color makeovers of the year and asked two celebrity colorists — Rita Hazan of New York’s Rita Hazan Salon and Jet Rhys of San Diego’s Jet Rhys Salon — how each leading lady pulled off her new hue with such glamour and grace.
Hayden Panettiere

This sunny blonde made the leap to rich, sultry color with surprising ease. “Her skin is absolutely glowing and her brows seem to match perfectly. She looks her age with this rich color, not like a little girl anymore,” says Rhys. “It adds color to her skin tone, making her look more golden,” agrees Hazan.

Katherine Heigl

The former blond bombshell’s choice of a chocolate brown instantly transformed the look of her complexion. “She picked a pretty soft brown, so it works well with her tone and makes her skin look more sun-kissed and bronze,” observes Hazan.

Hilary Duff
“She rocks the ombre color so well,” says Rhys of the star’s dark-to-light fade of subtle highlights, a hot color trend this season. “I love the butterscotch side-swept bang — it makes her blue eyes pop,” adds Rhys.
Attention-getting blond locks seem to fit this Fergalicious singer’s personality. “She’s a rock star, and the blond works for her. She looks younger and hot!” says Hazan. “Fergie was looking a bit goth, and it wasn’t defining the gorgeous layers in her haircut. The new blond is very soft with a natural highlight to add dimension without looking fried or fake,” adds Rhys.
Ashley Olsen
The perpetually-sunglassed twin traded in her light locks for a deep espresso blend. “Ashley looks regal in this color! The new rich brown works great with her skin and the classic red lips she wears so well. All grown up in a good way!” says Rhys.

WORLD AIDS DAY 2010: 500 Hairdressers unite against AIDS.

Over 500 hair stylists have invaded the United Nations for a cause far more urgent than just your typical bad hair day intervention.

Today, kicks off the United States launch of Hairdressers Against AIDS, a joint venture between L’Oréal and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which urges stylists to use the often intimate, tell-all relationships they have with clients as a jumping point to educate them about AIDS prevention, testing and available treatment resources.

“The longest relationship I’ve ever had with a man has been with my hair stylist, Garren,” said Allure Editor in Chief Linda Wells, to the laughs and knowing smiles of the room filled with hairdressers who had flown in from all parts of the country to support the cause.

It’s that uniquely special and loyal relationship that often deepens over years that allows hairdressers in particular to be very effective advocates, as they can gab details surrounding sexual activity that most women won’t even share with loved ones and partners.

“Today, information is the only vaccine against HIV,” said John Tedstrom, President and CEO of the Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria.

L’Oréal higher-ups, government officials and AIDS educators who addressed the crowd emphasized that blasting through the stigma surrounding HIV and creating an open atmosphere for discussion could actually save clients’ lives.

The 500 stylists will brave downpour and windy conditions to descend upon Times Square, with a goal of creating one million conversations about HIV and AIDS with New Yorkers. The effort aims to spread awareness and curb the spread of death and disease in order to honor World AIDS Day.

Celebrity stylists like Ted Gibson, Jason Backe, Tracey Cunningham and Jet Rhys will be on hand to pound the pavement for the long day of aggressive volunteer work.

“AIDS isn’t talked about because women don’t want to feel tainted or associated with disease, it can seem dirty. But we have to spark the conversation — it can save lives. And listening to the speakers made me realize that I need to talk to my own two teenage boys about it,” Rhys told StyleList.

And the HIV positive Regan Hofmann — whose long flowing blonde locks and Ivy-league upper class upbringing seems to fly in the face of the stereotypical AIDS patient — said it was also her hairstylist who was the first to comfort her in the shocking aftermath of her fatal diagnosis.

“I was scared my hairdresser wouldn’t want to touch my hair again. But after sitting down for a shampoo and feeling him run his fingers through my hair, I felt safe and comforted in a way I wasn’t able to before,” said the Editor In Chief of POZ Magazine.
