Gwyneth Paltrow Reveals Beauty Secrets
We have a love/hate relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow's red carpet appearances. She always looks gorgeous -- her hair and make-up are flawless -- but we're not always a fan of her dress choices. We've always wondered exactly what it takes to get red-carpet ready for an awards show -- and now we know, thanks to Ms. Paltrow!
Gwyneth Paltrow's Emmy awards show prep
Paltrow reveals in her newsletter, GOOP, that she likes to start red carpet prep with a facial. For example, she went to see facialist Sonya Dakar before the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards in September.
"When Gwyneth came to the Sonya Dakar Skin Clinic last week she got the Apple Stem Cell Facial. This includes a series of treatments for the face, neck and chest that leaves skin looking youthful, tight and glowing," Dakar wrote on GOOP.
Want the benefits of a facial, but can't afford a pricey celeb one? Dakar shared her tips for clear and glowing skin.
Hair tips from Gwyneth Paltrow's mane man
David Babaii has been Paltrow's hair stylist for the past nine years and knows what works for her. He chose a straight hair look for the show, a style that looks great with her shiny, silky hair.
"To achieve the look, I always start with a small amount of Couture Colour Pequi Oil massaged into the hair, which you can buy at couturecolour.com. It is the one and only product I use on all my clients because it not only provides a mirror-like shine but absorbs instantly into the hair without weighing it down, while protecting your style against humidity and dryness," he wrote.
"I blow dried her hair with a round brush to create a sort of a second day blow dry look. After hair was dried, I ran additional Pequi Oil through her tresses to lift and define. After all, hair is an accessory and Gwyneth is just perfection."
