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.
Banks and jewelry stores seem like an obvious target for thieves, but it’s hair salons and beauty supply stores that are being warned to increase their security. These stores and salons are being robbed of their wigs, extensions and weaves made of expensive hair that is imported from other countries.
Hair is a hot commodity for thieves since consumers are willing to pay hundreds of dollars per bundle in an effort to resemble stars’ long locks, like Kim Kardashian. One store in Chicago reports that they were robbed of more than $70,000 worth of human hair. Cities such as Atlanta, Detroit, San Diego and Houston have experienced their share of hair crimes as well. According to several reports, illicit hair markets are even popping up around the country and salon owners have reported random vendors trying to sell them hair.

Most of us are taught to cleanse the skin both morning and night. But, in reality, overwashing can lead to dryness and encourage a vicious cycle of breakouts and excess oil since too much natural oil is removed. “If the skin is cleansed more than twice a day, the natural oils will be stripped away. When that happens, more oil is produced to compensate for the dry feeling, which leads to more bacteria production,” says celebrity aesthetician Terri Lawton. Even if you are superoily, limit washing to just the morning and night. “If you have dry or sensitive skin, you may want to wash just at night so that some of the natural oils are preserved during the day,” she says. “You can splash with water or toner in the morning.”
Then there are some lucky women who are genetically blessed with near perfect skin and can get away with just splashing water on their faces and forego using cleanser altogether. But, for most of us, this method doesn’t work. “It’s pretty rare that you’re going to get a dewy, fresh glow with just water, especially since our skin is exposed to so much pollution on a regular basis,” says Lawton. “If you don’t use a cleanser, you can cause more congestion because the dirt and oil sitting on the surface of the skin, and in the pores, does not get removed.” For skin that’s extremely dry and aged, celebrity aesthetician Kate Somerville says that washing with water—as long as a cleanser is used once a day—may be OK.
