Side-Parted Ponytails fit for the Oscars at Vivienne Tam


I had the thrill of attending my very first New York Fashion Week this year with the Tresemmé team - and that meant some excellent backstage beauty adventures!

Despite being surrounded by the créme de la créme of both the fashion and beauty biz, since I work at Canada's biggest celebrity magazine - and with Oscar night only weeks away - I couldn't help but wonder which Hollywood heavy-hitters would be adventurous enough to try out a coif straight from the runways.

Backstage at the Vivienne Tam show (Taylor Swift, Eva Longoria and Julia Roberts are all fans of the New York-based designer), I took a peek at what Tresemmé celebrity stylist Matthew Curtis was up to and was thrilled to see a mélange of models in slicked-back ponies complete with deep side parts. Since it's a look I often try to replicate (but usually results in frizzy ends and an uneven part!) I was so excited to grab a few minutes with Matthew to get the scoop.

You'll have to wait a couple of weeks for the how-to in Hello! Canada - but for now, I can tell you that Matthew ran with the disco-friendly look since Vivienne's fall collection was deeply influenced by the glamorous women of the 1970s.

And if there is one celebrity this awards season who is channeling that decade, it's one Amy Adams in an ode to her American Hustle character. Big bouncy curls may have been her mainstay on both the big screen and the red carpet so far this year, however, I would love to see Ms. Adams really get into the spirit and slick back her strands for a Studio 54 moment.

If anything, I think the two-tone Valentino number she wore to the Golden Globes would have suited a sophisticated yet simple 'do like this over the braided updo that was just a bit too princess-y for her dress choice.
