- Lady Gaga's Hair Color. If you envy (naturally brunette) Lady Gaga's platinum hair, listen up. Stylist Nicole Gache of NYCs Valery Joseph Salon is the brains behind the high-impact look, and it's not an easy one to achieve. "We worked on her hair for three days straight, coloring it gradually with a lot of conditioning treatments," says Gache. So if you're thinking of the same look, "It's important to see a good colorist," Gache cautions. "Gradual treatments with heavy conditioning is key."
- Heather Graham's Hair Housecalls. If you were wondering how celebrities find time to stay coiffed, here's one secret: house calls. NYC stylist Adrian De Berardinis of the De Berardinis Salon recently paid a visit to Graham at her NYC pad for a trim. Berardinis told us he used a cool new blow-drier called the Cricket Q-ZONE, which has a special silent motor that won't drown out client-stylist chit chat.
- Mary-Louise Parker's Blowouts. When stars like Mary-Louise Parker and Rosanna Arquette just want a quick blowout, they head to Blow, the New York Blow Dry Bar. The space, dedicated to the art of the blow-dry (though they offer other services, too) is a favorite of anyone looking for a no-frills, smooth-every-time style. New product offerings, like the specially designed shower cap, help seal out humidity and keep your blowout in-tact through a shower--a plus for us non-celebs looking to make our investment last a few days.
