Scunci Look - Diane Kruger
The gorgeous Diane Kruger has been celebrated as one of this year's 'Best Dressed' by Vanity Fair, and Scunci simply couldn't resist re-creating one of her signature hairstyles - the chic ponytail.
The team at Scunci make achieving her effortlessly sophisticated look easy.
The first step is to apply a thermal protector after washing your hair and blow-dry roughly to create volume, very softly curl your hair with the Medium sized Foam Rollers to create volume so that the ponytail doesn't look flat. Pull the hair into a high ponytail using the Scunci Evolution No Slip Grip Hair Elastics. Once the hair has been pulled back, backcomb the top gently with the NEW Scunci Lift and Style Comb to create the desired effortless look.
To finish spray your preferred flexible hold hair spray into your hands and work through the length of the ponytail, this works better than spraying directly onto the head as it breaks up the hair to ensure the effortlessly undone look you're wanting!
You can purchase Scunci Evolution No Slip Grip Hair Elastics for $7.95, Scunci Medium Foam Rollers for $12.95 and the Scunci Lift and Style Comb for $5.95.

Scunci Look - Asher Keddie
Asher Keddie looked every inch a Hollywood star at the 10th ASTRA Awards. With a gorgeous floor length gown, Asher completed her look with subtle make-up and an effortless low bun hairstyle.
The Scunci team show you how easy it is to recreate Asher's gorgeous bun hairstyle with the Scunci Pin Twirls and a few Bobby Pins.
To begin, part your hair to the side and braid a section of hair along your hairline (if you can't braid as an alternative simply plait or twist the hair). Twist the end of your hair and secure it with a Scunci Grooming Bobby Pin, before getting started on your bun.
To style a basic bun just pull your hair together at the nape of the neck, and begin twirling the hair around. The Scunci Pin Twirls are especially perfect for a loose style of bun exact to Asher's. The Pin Twirls are extremely easy to use too. All you have to do is twirl them into the bun in a circular motion making sure none of them connect and your hair will stay in place all night long!
To finish the look, lightly spritz the hair with a flexible hold hair spray.
You can purchase the Scunci Pin Twirls for $9.95 and Scunci 90p Grooming Bobby Pins (blonde, brown, black) for $6.95.

Scunci Look - Ashley Greene
Scunci Look - Ashley Greene Ashley Greene captured everyone's attention at the 2012 Young Hollywood Awards in LA in June with her huge smile and bouncy brunette locks. Ashley teamed her full-bodied curls with a gorgeous makeup palette of bronzes, cool browns and pinks. But it was the voluminous curls that sure captured our attention!
The team at Scunci show us how easy it is to recreate Ashley's beautiful, bouncy locks for a star-studded look.
Start by blow-drying your clean, damp hair upside down to encourage volume. Before you start curling, lightly tease the hair underneath using the Scunci Grooming Lift and Style Comb. Next, grab your Scunci Foam Rollers and roll sections of hair from the bottom all the way to the top of your crown. Once all sections are done, lightly spritz the bits of hair which are exposed with hairspray, and then leave the rollers in for a few hours to let the hair set. To speed up the curling process use a blow-dryer over the rollers.
After an hour take the rollers out and run your fingers through your hair to gently separate the curls. To finish the look, spray a good amount of flexible hold hairspray onto your hair.
You can purchase the Scunci Foam Rollers in Large for $12.95 and the Scunci Hair Lifting Comb for $5.95. For full stockist details please call 1800 242 848 or visit www.scunci.com.au

John Frieda Anti-Frizz Brush Range
John Frieda Anti-Frizz Brush Range The John Frieda® brand has been known for transformational styling for over 20 years. The new John Frieda® brush range - just launching in Australia - is very much part of this transformational, ultra-sophisticated sleek and shiny story, adding to the John Frieda® tool bag that allows salon sleek to be achieved at home easily and with dramatic results.
So how do they work?

The silicone is ultra-hardwearing, which means it will last for the life of the brush, so hair shines and shines.
The John Frieda® brush range is also made with tourmaline (100% crushed gemstones) that release natural IONS for intense shine. IONS work by helping to flatten the hair's cuticle layer, increasing shine and helping to reduce frizz.

They are designed to achieve a sleek finished look and are the perfect brushes to use in conjunction with the new John Frieda® Styling Tools range - in particular with the John Frieda® Sleek Finish Straightener if you want to try your interpretation of the 'new-look straight' or with the John Frieda® 'Loose Curls' Curler for sleek curls and waves as seen (and very much coveted!) on 2012 runways.
The John Frieda® Vented Brush: $26.95: Use with the John Frieda® Salon Shine hair dryer.
The vents let the airflow from the dryer reach your hair for faster drying and styling.
The John Frieda® Large Round Brush: $29.95 and Small Round Brush: $29.95: Use with the John Frieda® Salon Shine hair dryer to make for a dramatic blow dry. The combination of the boar and nylon bristles distributes the scalp's own natural oils for added shine and smoothness.

The John Frieda® brush range is available nationally through Priceline.

Dove Nourishing Oil Care Range
Dove Nourishing Oil Care Range For centuries oils have been revered for their ability to help nourish, moisturise, repair and smooth hair. Today, oils are a hot beauty trend as women once again realise and appreciate their power. However, some traditional oil infused products can leave hair limp and greasy and many salon treatments are expensive and hard to find.
Dove Hair will exploit the benefits of oils and make their powerful properties available to women everywhere, through the launch of their weightless nutri-oil technology. After a decade of research and development, Dove is expecting its new Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Range to transform the way women feel about their hair, with the hero product - Nourishing Oil Care: Nutri Oil Serum anticipated to achieve cult status once it hits supermarket shelves. The new wonder serum reduces roughness and frizz by 99% and is scientifically proven to leave your hair as smooth and shiny as the latest 'wow' product Moroccan Oil Treatment, yet is just a fraction of the price.
Dove's weightless nutri-oils are formulated with natural oils known for their short chain molecular structure, allowing them to move over the hair easily and penetrate deep into the hair shaft, providing nourishment from root to tip. Nutri-oil technology helps to replenish lipids lost from the hair with those found in natural oils. Lipids are vital to hair health as they act like cement to hold protein within hair shaft keeping it healthy and supple.
Also launching is a new Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo and Conditioner.The secret to the range is its super-conditioning oil base that is rapidly absorbed to deeply nourish and protect the hair shaft. When used as a three-step system, roughness is smoothed and hair becomes more manageable, allowing women to make friends with their hair.
The new Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Range is available in supermarkets.
Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Spray
Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Spray With summer fast approaching, it is time to lap up the beautiful Australian sun without worrying about the damage and distress it causes to our hair. To counter this problem, Australian natural hair care brand Seven Wonders has launched a new Moroccan Treatment Spray which can be carried in a handbag all summer long.
The Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Spray was developed from the success of the Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Oil and now the same benefits of hydrating and nourishing hair can be applied without leaving hands feeling greasy! Perfect for humid summer days which can cause hair to frizz; the convenient spray can be carried around in a bag and applied whilst out and about.
The Seven Wonders Moroccan Treatment Spray has a lighter formulation than the original Moroccan Treatment Oil, making it ideal for thinner or shorter hair.
The Moroccan Treatment Spray uses only organic Argan oil and is free from harsh chemicals such as parabens and sulphates. Through harnessing the incredible power of Argan oil, the Moroccan Treatment Spray hydrates, protects, enhances and nourishes the hair to leave a beautiful shine without any greasiness.
Seven Wonders Moroccan Range is also ideal for oily hair types. "Many people with oily hair think they cannot use Moroccan Treatment oil," says Mark Baker, Co-owner of Seven Wonders. "Because Argan oil has an oil balance feature, it is able to hydrate dry hair and spread and balance excess in oily hair, leaving a shine without any greasiness," says Mark.
The Moroccan Treatment Oil spray revitalises hair, especially during the summer months and can be applied as often as desired to damp or dry hair. "I recommend applying the Moroccan Oil Treatment Spray to damp hair before blow drying and to dry hair, particularly when the weather is humid, to avoid frizz," says Mark. "It provides a quick shine and is useful as a thermal protector before using a styling iron or blow dryer".
RRP $34.95 - 125ml Moroccan Oil Treatment Spray
The Seven Wonders Moroccan Oil range is available at health food stores and pharmacies nation wide, see www.sevenwonders.com.au for a full list of stockists.

Lady Jayne Paddle Brush and Snagless Elastics
Alex Perry's dresses always have that timeless, striking elegance and at the RAFW 2011 catwalk collection proved no different.
Gorgeous reds, greens blues and orange were juxtaposed with dominant black and those signature Alex Perry tailored sleek lines in his Cuban collection.
The collection was paired with sleek and understated hairstyles to allow the gorgeous designs, intricate necklines and sumptuous fabrics to do the talking.
To capture this enduring sophisticated look at home, it is best to start with hair that is not freshly washed for this look, as the natural oils of your hair will help to hold the style. Start by brushing hair all back off your face with a paddle brush. Once hair is all brushed back, use the paddle brush to ease hair into a ponytail that is level with your eye-line. Secure ponytail with a thick snagless elastic, in the same colour as your hair for a seamless look. To eliminate any wispy pieces of hair on the underside of your ponytail, slide a few bobby pins in. Give hair a good spray with hair spray to set the style.
