Beauty notes: Mrs O’s hairstylist bags reality TV show

21 January 2009


So you've scrutinised the outfits and joined either the Isabel Toledo or Jason Wu camps, but what of last night's inauguration beauty bonanza?

Headline news is Mrs O's hair. She may be the First Lady, but it seems that even Michelle Obama can't convince her Chicago-based hair guru, Rahni Flowers, to up sticks and move to Washington with her. Rumour has it that, despite her personal requests for Rahni to accompany her to Washington and keep that layered bob in check, her wishes fell on deaf ears, because of the hairstylist's commitment to his salon, Van Cleef Hair. Still, presumably she can always hail a private jet to maintain her appointments and keep those split ends at bay… [Allure]

However, some other hairstylists are happy to be in the spotlight. Johnny Wright, who styled Michelle's hair on the campaign trail, has apparently bagged a reality-TV style makeover show. [Fashionista]

Meanwhile, Michelle's make-up artist has made the First Lady's eyebrows fuller and lighter. Ingrid Grimes-Myles was responding to some commentators who, earlier in the campaign, said Mrs O's overarched brows made her look angry. [NY Mag]

Moving away from Michelle for a moment, Demi Moore got the beauty look just right. With an olive glow, apricot blush (it's the new pink in beauty circles) and nude lips, the woman looked like a walking advert. And even managed to overshadow Ashton Kutcher.

And finally... we first saw the Sydney Herald's Veet hair removal ad with the slogan 'Goodbye Bush' beneath a pic of the new President a full half an hour ago. And we still can't stop snickering.
