Top 10 Red Carpet Hair Trends by Marc Anthony Celebrity Hair Stylist

Toronto – February 27, 2011 – A wave of high sophistication yet delicate charm flooded the Red Carpet at this evening’s 83rd Annual Academy Awards; it takes us back to the time of the ‘movie star’, when picture perfect glam was status quo.

It was a melting pot of decades - from soft 40s waves to sexy 60s bombshell - and every strand played its role to perfection. Tonight’s Oscar style had that gratifying feeling of “yes I worked hard to look this good and proud of it”.

1.Cate Blanchett

Cate’s cut was simply amazing. We love that she just got a perfect blowout and left it at that. Her side part looked flirty and the body in the blowout let it move with her. This was definitely a modern bob.

2.Anne Hathaway

Anne wore an amazing red dress on the Red Carpet. This was a great colour for her and so were her lovely highlights. The bits that were left out at the front gave it a young look but the overall feel was very grown up. The clean simple low bun wrapped and tucked into a half circle had a very 40s feeling to it.

3.Reese Witherspoon

Her high ponytail was very Bridget Bardot in feeling – it was so polished and elegant. This look works well when you Velcro roller the hair before hand for a fuller finish. Hair is wrapped around
the elastic and the pony is left to fall naturally.

4.Sandra Bullock

Her messy bun worked because it was not tight or overly contrived. She has left her hair natural with that great wave and then pulled it up for a very modern finish. We’re glad that she pushed that heavy fringe off of her face.

5.Scarlett Johansson

Her short, blunt cut really worked for the Red Carpet. She may get a bit of flack for the casualness of her hair but with her classic look she could have easily looked overdone. This was a nice balance. The simple blowout and lightly curled finish looked modern and fresh, which is something she does not always get right. This time she did.
6.Hailee Steinfeld

Perfectly grown up her look was just right for her age. The modern twists in this could have been a tad too mature but were made soft by their execution. Two bits twisted together and wrapped over and under worked well and the hair band kept it young in feeling.

 7.Celine Dion

Celine arrived with shine, body and a very cool mix of Veronica Lake and Victoria’s Secret. Hair loosely wrapped around a large barrel curling iron has never looked so good – You go Miss `Canadienne`.

8.Mila Kunis

We loved Mila Kunis’ Red Carpet hair. A few finger waves as a nod to the 30s with a semi messy bun loosely pinned in the back to make it modern.

9.Michelle Williams

We love that her hair is a bit longer now. If you wear you hair short making it too fussy can make you look older. Michelle kept it simple which is the best way to wear shorter hair and her side swept fringe really worked.

10.Penelope Cruz

Perfectly smooth, sexy, modern hair. She bounced back after having a baby and kept her look classically simple. This woman is so stunning that simple works amazingly well on her.

Batmanghelidj subsequently found through research that water prevents and helps cure1 :

Tired, dark under eye Circles, feeling bloated and suffering from sinuses?

Take the test to see if food intolerance is your problem
Do you feel bloated and suffer severe nausea when you drink a glass of milk? Does your stomach feel like a rock when you?ve eaten a delicious croissant?
Food Intolerance occurs when the digestive system is unable to produce the right quantity of enzymes/chemicals to digest a particular type of food. The reactions can be delayed up to 48 hours or more; or, effects can be cumulative. Although not life threatening, the effects can have a major impact on one?s health.

Allergies occur when and food is not properly digested and / or partially digested food comes into direct contact with the immune system; triggering it into action. 

These immune reactions may cause a wide variety of effects such as fatigue, eczema, weight gain, fluid retention, arthritis and conditions such as IBS, migraine headaches, Cohn?s Disease, rheumatoid arthritis, infantile colic, and childhood ear infections.

It is therefore a critical step to identify which foods are causing you intolerance.

The next big thing in nails is Cracked Nail Polish. No, not chipped and certainly
not un-kept, but artfully Cracked Nail Colours. We know all the beauty rules, but rules
were made to be broken – or cracked, if you will. Simply apply Tip Top NailChic
‘U Crack Me Up’ and watch it as it dries. When this Cracked Nail Polish dries, it
has a fractured effect to it that allows the undercoat to peek through. Tip Top
NailChic ‘U Crack Me Up’ nail polish looks like an ordinary polish. But when you
apply it over the top of any of your favourite nail varnish, it starts to visibly shrink on
your nail so you get a crackle effect. On top of white polish, you can create a
zebra-print style pattern; on top of yellow, you get leopard print – perfectly on-trend
for autumn/winter. Play around on top of darker colours and you can create a cool
Gothic effect. You can even layer it over glitters for a more creative touch. It’s so
different and unique that people will think you sat at the salon for hours to get that design!

Oral Care for Babies

For most people oral care simply means brushing the teeth. At  MAM, we believe oral care should begin even before the first tooth appears!

Here are a few tips from MAM's pediatric dental experts:

1) Clean your baby's gums after breastfeeding or bottlefeeding using a soft cloth, a cotton swab, or a cotton ball. This way you not only remove bacteria but you also gently massage the gums of your child. You can start doing this during the first month after delivery. MAM has developed the Oral Care Rabbit to meet this need. 
The MAM Oral Care Rabbit is a teething cloth that makes dental hygiene very easy. Simply slip your finger into one of the ears – this makes it easier to reach and clean each part of your baby´s mouth. The soft microfibers clean and gently massage the gums.

Zinc - Could it be the most important mineral?

Zinc, Boring?
Oh no! It could be the single most important mineral for life.

Especially for men. Men and women have just about the same amount of zinc in all tissues of their bodies, with one exception. The male prostate gland contains and uses more zinc than any other tissue – 4 to 80 times more, depending on what tissue it might be compared against.
The main transporter of zinc into prostate tissue is the amino acid arginine, nutrient also found concentrated in the prostate gland. Binding zinc to arginine helps direct it to the tissue that has the highest requirement for the mineral. Without adequate zinc, sperm production decreases, and the general health of the prostate falters. In addition: 

Winter Hair Woes – Dryness, Frizz and Static
