Between New York’s Fashion Week models and the celebrities posing on the Emmy Awards red carpet, September gave us a lot of styles and trends to be inspired by—from sleek ponytails to beehives. Straight from the runways, the hairstylists from Matrix have shared the top four trends they expect to take women on and off the red carpet by storm.
1. Patent Leather Ponies: Nick Stenson, Matrix Artistic Director tells us ponytails are all the rage for next season, and we’re glad to hear it. Adding some high-shine updates the simple ponytail as seen during designer shows, such as Derek Lam.
Get the look: Influenced by the sleek styles of actresses like Kate Bosworth and Gwyneth Paltrow, Stenson recommends combining Matrix Design Pulse Glow to Pieces Shine Wax and Mix In Shine Brilliant Serum to damp hair for high shine. “It requires healthy, well-hydrated strands to wear this look well,” he adds. Try Matrix Total Results Moisture Cure 2-Phase Treatment.
2. Glamorous Waves: Long waves, tossed over one shoulder with deep side parts topped many collections during Fashion Week and numerous stars at the Emmy’s. “Glam-with-whimsy” feeling is perfect for lighthearted spring styles and will undoubtedly be embraced by the likes of Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez, says Artistic Designer Franco Della Grazia (who created looks like this for designer Betsey Johnson).
Get the look: Part hair to one side and pin behind the ear to keep strands in place. To add crisp definition to waves while taming frizz and flyaways, try a combination of styling cream and shine-enhancing serum like Matrix Design Pulse Loosely Defined Texture Creme and Mix In Shine Brilliant Serum.
3. Mod Beehives: The beehive is back, but with a twist. “At shows like Diane Von Furstenberg, high bouffants evoked the cool retro elegance of Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks. But rather than traditional sleek and solid shapes, these hives are roughed up and romantic—with lots of texture and even wisps and flyaways,” Matrix Artistic Director, Ammon Carver explains.
Get the look: A little teasing is necessary to create this ‘do and you’ll need a solid hairspray like Matrix Vavoom ShapeMaker Medium Hold Hairspray.
4. Scalloped Edges: Braids have made a recent comeback and they are here to stay, if Fashion Week is any indicator.
Get the look: We’re expecting boho-chic celebs like Drew Barrymore to sport this look. “Braids are best when they’re smooth and defined,” says Grazia. He recommends using Matrix Total Results Curl Super DeFrizzer Gel and Sleek Silk Wonder Smoothing Oil on damp hair.

April is Earth Month for Aveda and Rizzieri continues to participate through our annual Walk for Water. This year, on April 22nd, Rizzieri staff, students and friends will be walking throughout the Voorhees Town Center in an effort to raise funds for the Clean Ocean Action. The COA works to clean up the shore lines of the New Jersey and New York coastlines. In 2010, Aveda and their partners helped to raise an incredible $3.7 million which supported access to clean water at home and around the world. This brings the cumulative total to $18 million raised during Aveda Earth Month, thus far. This year, Aveda has raised their goals, and Rizzieri will be raising our goals, as well. Aveda hopes to raise $4 million in 2011 through clean water projects. We hope to raise funds through donations, t-shirt sales, and raffle baskets at the Walk for Water this April. For information on the Walk or for Earth Month, please contact Chrissy Oakley at COakley@Rizzieri.com. We look forward to having you help us in our quest to bring clean water to each and every person around the world.

Recently, you may have heard news about several states banning bath salts. For many who are familiar with this centuries-old spa staple, this caused some confusion and concern. However, it’s not traditional bath salts that are being pulled off shelves, but rather a dangerous substance being packaged and sold as bath salts when, in fact, the intended use is as a drug.
Sold under vague names like Vanilla Sky, Ivory Wave and White Dove, these packets of so-called bath salts are actually a white powder containing methylenedioxypyrovalerone, or MDPV. It’s a psychotropic that reportedly produces a “meth-like high,” and it’s being blamed for frightening behavior throughout the US.
Some who have smoked or snorted the substance have experienced hallucinations and paranoia, which has led to violence in several cases. One Florida woman allegedly attacked her mother with a machete while she was high on MDPV, believing she was a monster.
This week, Alabama became the third state to ban MDPV “bath salts,” after Florida and Louisiana. Senator Charles Schumer of New York has proposed a nationwide ban. According to Louisiana Poison Control director Mark Ryan previous attempts to legally sell MDPV included mareketing it as growth stimulator, pH optimizer, and pond scum remover.
Real bath salts contain a wide variety minerals and trace elements, but no psychoactive stimulants like MDPV. You can find safe, healthy, beneficial bath salts from reputable spas and beauty retailers.

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Aveda cares about those effected by Breast Cancer, which is why they donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each special edition Pink Ribbon Hand Relief™ product to the Breast Cancer Research foundation. The foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder and dedicated to funding clinical and genetic research on breast cancer at medical institutions around the globe.
Aveda cares about the environment and the animals we share it with ,so donations from Aveda North America are used to fund cruelty-free research exploring environmental causes and links to breast cancer such as exposures to toxic chemicals and pollutants. For many years now their funding has been directed to a specific research project at Columbia University in New York that studies the interaction between environmental exposures and genetic susceptibility to breast cancer.
Since 2004, Aveda has contributed over $1.5 million to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This money comes not only from corporate contributions but also from employees and guests who have an opportunity to donate to the BCRF through fundraising activities held by the Aveda network throughout the month of October. Currently, more than 88 cents of each dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to research and awareness programs.
You can purchase your Pink Ribbon Hand Relief at the Aveda Lifestyle Store at Rizzieri Aveda School in Voorhees, NJ. Contact 856-988-8600 x0 for additional information.
