Last week, the stars flocked to Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, ready for a weekend of celebrity sightings, great parties and a whole lot of pampering. One of the best places to be (and be seen) was the Dove Color Care Salon.
Stars are no different than we are — we all want to look our best when we know we are going to be photographed! It’s no surprise the Dove Color Care Salon was a hot ticket, with lots of stars passing through to get their hair touched up for their big events — Karina Smirnoff visited to get her hair washed and styled by celebrity stylist Matt Fugate with the new Dove Color Care products while Mario Lopez hung out and watched his wife Courtney as she got tips from Fugate for keeping her hair vibrant.
The salon, part of the Talent Resources Gifting Suite, included visits by Jane Lynch, Octavia Spencer, Jennifer Coolidge and more. The main star of the salon? The new Dove Color Care collection — formulated to protect hair against the dulling and fading of its color while nourishing it, giving it a vibrant shine. I don’t color my hair — but I do chemically treat it, and it’s often looking “fried” and dull — especially in busy travel seasons! I’m already obsessed — check out how hot my hair looked after Matt gave me a blowout with the products. After back-to-back red eye flights and a whole lot of dry mountain air, that’s pretty incredible.
It was also a time for spotting — and creating new trends. “This was the first time Mario had ever seen Courtney with bangs before. He was super excited and was tweeting throughout the cut!” says Fugate, who created the fabulous fringe, inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama, Mario’s wife is rocking. Fugate says another big trend was “undone fun” — all the looks matched the energy of the festival from Freida Pinto’s messy ponytail to Julianne Moore’s topknot and January Jones’ new blonde, sexy bob.
“The most fun for me was being able to meet so many great people and work with such an amazing team of girls from Ulysses salon in Salt Lake City… And also laughing with Pretty Little Liars’ Troian Bellisario — her hair and personality were vibrant as ever!” says Fugate.
