Job: Hair stylist to the stars (Malin Akerman, Coco Rocha, Daria, to name a few)
Website: What looks are celebs loving this fall?

Tony Masciangelo: Long luscious waves that are reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour. Step back in time and think 50s siren Lauren Bacall. What’s the hottest look in hair for TIFF? In makeup?

Tony Masciangelo: Celebs are running on very tight schedules at TIFF so intricate hairstyles are pretty much a no-go. High-glam ponytails can make someone glamorous in an instant; that way you can be a bit daring with your makeup. Celebs this season have adopted gold and golden-brown tones with apricot cheeks. Don’t forget just a hint of pink in the ever-popular nude lipstick. What looks are considered passé for this film fest?

Tony Masciangelo: Matte skin and hair that’s just flat and long. Everything needs to have a refined luxe quality to it; simple just doesn’t work. What’s your number one beauty tip for women prepping for film fest parties?

Tony Masciangelo: Make sure your skin is well-moisturized and your hair is well-prepped for staying power. Ensure you’re using a dry hairspray like Nexxus Comb Thruwhile you’re curling; this will give hair a soft glamorous look. The last thing you want is for things to appear overly contrived and stiff. Glamour comes from all the small perfect details. How can a woman look more confident on TIFF’s red carpets?

Tony Masciangelo: Strong makeup, sexy hair, a great bag, killer shoes and amazing posture. Oh, and a little attitude too.
