A dynamic hair styling duo makes mane miracles at Rossano Ferretti in Beverly Hills

Debi and Alina are the super stylist team to see at this chic salon By Patti Pietschmann They are the gurus of coif, mane masters, two female hair stylists who work in tandem to turn dull-looking hair into the silky strands.  First Debi perfoms a masterful color transformation then  Alina painstakingly applies a Keratin treatment followed by a necessary bang and ends trimming. The women have been friends for 16 years and have worked as a team at three top Beverly Hills salons where they amassed a large celebrity following (as well as the rest of us) in the shops as well as home calls. Both have also worked backstage on television and have clients who fly them in private jets to Europe and the Kentucky Derby. They are that talented and sought-after. After Debi redid my color to make it more vibrant and healthier looking, Alina began the Keratin Complex process. The whole appointment took a little more than two hours but then I was taking photos and schmoozing. I  highly recommend this …

Golden Globes glam: Zoey Deutch gets the look from Avon's Lauren Andersen

Makeup artist Lauren Andersen glams up Zoey Deutch for GG viewing party
The look: soft, smoky eyes, a pop of peach on lips
How to:  Lauren used a a soft brush to apply a  mix of Avon Ideal Flawless Liquid Foundation in Nude and Honey Beige to keep her skin looking fresh. Then, I swiped Avon Ideal Luminous Blush in Antique Rose onto the apples of her cheeks and blended it with Avon Ideal Luminous Blush in Candlelight onto her cheekbones.

The eyes had it: To create a really soft, neutral eye, Lauren used a cream  shadow with shimmers of peaches and golds to play off of Zoey’s dress. She applied Avon Extra Lasting Eyeshadow Ink in Gold Gleam Forever Bronze on her lids. 
She lined the eyes with Avon True Color Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Cosmic Brown and softened the line with a brown shadow through the crease and added some to the lower lash line for an extra pop. To finish the eyes, I added a few coats of the new Avon True Color Super ExtendNourishing Mascara in Black on both t…

There were tables of new cosmetics being proffered to celebs and media, all the latest in anti-aging, rejuvenation technologies.

One of the first I tried was STORM from Cosmetic Research Lab. I couldn't believe my eyes. Just like skin care expert Karen Sinclair Drake promised, wrinkles under my eyes and around the mouth vanished in three minutes.  You dab the serum on and wait without expression for a few seconds while it works its magic. But you'll have to wait to try it as it doesn't launch in the United States for two to three months. When it does Drake says it will retail for $65 for a box of 50 sachets. A sache…
