Star-studded film The Great Gatsby hits theaters this weekend, and John Blaine, celebrity hairstylist and Creative Director for hair care line Obliphica Professional, dishes on his tips for creating an elegant 1920s inspired coif. Recently, John mastered these looks on his client, Dita Von Teese, internationally renowned Queen of Burlesque!
DITA's GREAT GATSBY COIFFURE
1. "All beautiful styles start with healthy hair," says John.
2. To get maximum shine and long lasting waves, prep your hair with a moisturizing, replenishing, and UV protecting shampoo and conditioner. John recommends (and Dita uses) Obliphica Professional's Intensive Nourisging Shampoo and Hair Mask.
3. Mix two drops of Obliphica Professional's Treatment Serum with your favorite styling cream and evenly distribute throughout damp locks. This will help soften your hair while adding extra shine and hold without stiffness. If you don't have a favorite styling product, the Treatment Serum works great by itself.
3. Blow dry two-inch sections with a boar bristle round brush. Begin with under-most layers of the hair, curling the brush under the strands to create a voluminous bounce and inward curl at the ends.

PAMELA'S PINNED-UP PINUP BOUFFANT
1. This look takes some blow-drying and a curling iron, so prepare your hair for the styling and heat with a treatment shampoo and conditioner. Pamela uses Obliphica Professional's Treatment Shampoo and Hair Mask, one of John's favorites.
2. Mix two drops of Obliphica Professional's Intensive Serum with your favorite volumizing product and evenly distribute throughout damp locks. This will help soften your hair while adding extra shine volume without stiffness.

I have always loved the simplicity of a low bun. When I am strapped for time, or just not feeling up to waging a war with my hair, I opt for the quick and simple remedy of pulling my hair back. So, you can imagine my thrill when I heard that the bun is making a red carpet come back. Here is the styling how-to for Rachel Weisz’s hair look at the Oz The Great and Powerful world premiere in LA. She was elegantly styled by Ben Skervin using Vidal Sassoon Pro Series (@VidalSassoon) hair products. Get the look below (and you can bet I will be copying this!).The Look: Sleek Low Bun
Rachel and Ben chose to do a super-sleek and shiny take on a low bun. This stunning look paired with her fitted Victoria Beckham dress created a modern, sexy look that really popped as Rachel walked down Oz’s yellow brick road.
Here’s how Ben created Rachel’s look:
1. Mist hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray before blowing hair out with a large round brush to ensure the hair is smooth.
Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler has been working on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for several years and is a seasoned pro when it comes to working in all kinds of weather conditions! That knowledge came in handy when he traveled to Antarctica for the shoot of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover with Kate Upton. Peter used Leonor Greyl products to create Kate’s look and provided us with a breakdown of how he did it!
“It was a real challenge, the first day we arrived there was a blizzard and I was just thinking that it was all going to be a disaster. Thankfully, the next five days there was sun every day!
GET THE LOOK:
- To create Kate’s look for the cover, I applied Leonor Greyl’s Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice and then began blowing out her hair with a large round brush.
- Then, I applied the Spray Structure Naturelle all over and began curling big sections of her hair with a large barrel curling iron.
