Get the Look: Jessica Alba at the MTV Movie Awards

Check out how to get the hairstyle that celebrity hairstylist Davy Newkirk created for Jessica Alba at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

INSPIRATION: Playful, Modern Hollywood Glam


GET THE LOOK: Celebrity hairstylist Davey Newkirk gave actress Jessica Alba glossy, simple loose waves for the 2014 MTV Movie awards red carpet.




In order to recreate this look, follow these steps from Newkirk using products from John Frieda:

  •  Newkirk started by applying John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray all over Jessica’s wet hair.
  •  Then he blew out her hair using a large round brush to give her tons of volume and a lot of shine.
  •  After blow drying, Newkirk parted her hair into 2 inch sections (starting from the nape and working up).
  • Then he curled the hair with a large 1 ½ inch curling iron. He made sure to secure each section with a duckbill clip and allowed each curl to set.
  •  Once curls were set, he removed the hair clips and with a flat brush, gently brushed out each curl.
  •  Newkirk placed a small amount of John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème and smoothed it through Jessica’s hair to achieve a perfectly smooth look.
  •  After, with a large comb, he parted the hair and smoothed it down with a touch of John Frieda Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Gel.
  • Finally he manipulated Jessica’s curls with his finger and a brush. To finish and lock the style he sprayed John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.

Kate Upton + David Kirsch

From Hollywood films to Sports Illustrated covers, Kate Upton shows off her covetable figure in every shot. But how does the model of the moment get her enviable body? She turns to fitness and wellness expert David Kirsch who keeps her looking her best. Along with managing her training, David Kirsch also ensures that everything she puts in her body helps toward her fitness goals—that’s where his Thermo Bubbles and KirschbarsTMcome in. Kate Upton’s spring training essentials, the fat-melting supplements and appetite-curbing protein bars work from the inside out to help shape one of America’s most famous bodies.




The 100% natural KirschbarTM is delicious and contains only 100 calories while providing 8 grams of casein and egg white protein. Unlike conventional protein bars that have as much sugar as candy bars, the KirschbarTM keeps snacking smart with very little sugar and no artificial additives. And casein protein digests slowly, keeping you full for longer than other protein bars can. Kate also pairs her diet with David Kirsch Thermo Bubbles—a unique supplement that fizzes up in your water to create a tasty, pink lemonade-flavored drink. The exclusive David Kirsch Weight Management blend of Guarana, White Tea, Green Tea, L-arginine, and Chromium naturally boosts metabolism and energy, getting your body to burn calories and fat at a faster rate.

Experience the Lushness of Santorini!

Debuting April 1st, KORRES Natural Products will introduce its NEW “White Grape from the Vineyards of Santorini” collection, featuring a moisturizing showergel and smoothing body cream, transporting you and your sense to the Greek island of Santorini. Santorini is the most popular destination in the Mediterranean with its sparkling Aegean blue sea and Cycladic white houses.

The new collection is infused with white grapes indigenous to Santorini. The grapes are cultivated in the arid volcanic ash rich soil of the island. This ancient vine variety goes back 400 years and remains phylloxera-free. It grows on its own roots with sea mist water, which drifts across the island at night.

Each of the new products offers a distinct, naturally sweet aroma, influenced by the volcanic soil and the sea air. Also, the scent has notes of green apple, floral, citrus and peach for the ultimate Greek Summer sensorial experience!


·         WHITEGRAPE FROM THE VINEYARDS OF SANTORINI SHOWERGEL ($19.50): Soft moisturizing showergel, ideal for everyday use. Wheat proteins form a protective film on the skin, maintaining its regular hydration level.

·         WHITEGRAPE FROM THE VINEYARDS OF SANTORINI BODY BUTTER($29): Smoothing and moisturizing body cream, ideal for dry elbows, heels and knees. Shea butter and Quince extract have softening, moisturizing and restructuring properties. Sunflower, Almond and Avocado oils nourishes the skin, thus restoring its elasticity and smoothness.
