America Ferrera's Not So Ugly Hair
I am extremely sad Ugly Betty has just announced that this will be the shows last season, primarily because I feel somewhat responsible for its yank off the air. I've watched about five minutes of the show through its many years on TV. Not because I have anything against it, I just assumed I'd have time to catch up in a later season. Looks like I assumed wrong (you know what they say about assuming...). I am even more surprised that I am a non-Ugly Betty follower because America Ferrera is one of my favorite celebrities on the planet.
It tickles me to the bone that she isn't a size 00 and doesn't care. She is also one of the few celebrities that I believe looks absolutely beautiful wearing minimal makeup. I follow the Jersey Shore Snooki belief you won't catch me leaving my apartment without bronzing myself (just hopefully not to the extent Snooks does it). But America look absolutely gorgeous with just a hint of mascara and some gloss.
At the recent Sundance Film Festival, Celebrity Hair Consultant Patrick Melville (he also prepped Heidi's strands before the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show), helped Ferrera get a glossy, swept look for the red carpet. See how you can get the look below, without having to de-thaw your frozen credit card to get the products.
Wash hair and remove excess moisture with a towel.
Using a Mason Pearson brush, blow out hair in sections in order to seal in the product and lock in shine.
The latest trend is a soft sweeping side part: Use a 1" curling iron and wrap the hair from root to end to create a soft bend and texture.
To finish, use a Mason Pearson brush to gently loosen the curl for a soft, sexy but natural daytime look.
So long, Ugly Betty! To make it up to America (the girl and the country) I promise to watch Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants on replay this entire weekend while snowed in.
