DuJour’s “Body Language” column offers short tidbits of info about one specific body part each week. This week, it’s all about hair.
1. THE TREND: BRONDE
From George Papanikolas, Matrix Celebrity Stylist:
“Bronde is one of the hottest and most requested looks in the salon. It instantly transforms mousy brown hair a golden bronde dream. It works with most skin and hair tones. If you are a naturally dark brunette, you would need to lighten your base color to a milk chocolate brown, then place the golden highlights throughout. If you have light brown to dark blonde hair then you can highlight on your natural color—think Gisele Bunchen, Sarah Jessica Parker. The color can work with most haircuts, but I love it most when it’s worn wavy…that’s when you really get to see the variations in tone and swirls of color.”
2. THE PRODUCT: INTENSE CONDITIONER
Oribe’s new Intense Conditioner for Moisture & Control is an ultra-rich, hydrating product that’s perfect for dry winter hair. Slather it on after shampooing and let it seep into the hair for a few minutes, then rinse. Intense Conditioner for Moisture & Control, $43, Oribe, oribe.com
3. THE TOOL: MASON PEARSON POPULAR MIXTURE HAIR BRUSH
Long regarded by stylists as the holy grail of hair brushes, Mason Pearson’s is perfect for everyday styling, says Edward Tricomi, founder of Warren-Tricomi salons. He adds, “This one is a mix of boar and nylon bristles so it polishes the hair as it brushes.” Popular Mixture Hair Brush, $170, Mason Pearson, barneys.com
