Everything about ‘Sparkle’ sparkles

from the three sisters

to Jordin Sparks as ‘Sparkle’

in her last movie before her untimely death

You wouldn’t guess from the top photo that doing the hairstyles for Sparkle was relatively easy…but they were because of wigs!

The movie’s hairstylist Kim Kimble explained her reliance on fabulous fakes to 8makeup.com. “Wigs were the quickest way to change the hair,” says Kim. The hair wardrobe included about 200 wigs with tools such as 20 boxes of hair pins and 36 cans of hair spray.

8makeup also spoke to the movie’s makeup artist Marietta Carter-Narcisse about enhancing the eyes. She said they had a stock of a “couple hundred pairs” of fake eyelashes!

These insider tips are good news for real women who think glamorous looks are too hard to do. With extensions, tools like bun holders and a little advice from your hairstylist, you can make your hair Sparkle, too.

Who wore the best Teen Choice hairstyle? Crystal Reed, Lucy Hale, Bella Thorne, Nina Dobrev, Jordin Sparks or …

In the previous post, we started a Reader’s Poll of hairstyles from the Teen Choice Awards. Here’s more ‘dos for you to consider. Take a good look at these and the following, and then return to the first post to make your choice(s)!

Crystal Reed rolls one side up and sweeps the rest back.
Lucy Hale‘s side braid is knotted at the shoulder for a one-of-a-kind look.

Bella Thorne contrasts a smooth crown with spiral curls.
Laura Marano chose one of today’s trendiest hairstyles–the sidesweep.

Ashley Rickards and Debby Ryan had the same idea when it came to their hair for the Teen Choice Awards. They both have bangs and straight locks. Ashley’s color is darker and her bangs are angled. Debby has light bangs and a slightly off-center part.

Nina Dobrev looks like she didn’t do much to her hair besides adding a barely visible braid on top of her straight mane. Jordin Sparks makes a smart choice wearing her hair back to show off her pretty face and fashion.

Now that Portia di Rossi has cut her hair short, she and Ellen DeGeneres are starting to look alike! But they’re still unique with Ellen going shorter and layered while Portia goes a bit long without layers.

Country Music Hairstyles from CMT: Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Kellie Pickler, Jordin Sparks, Hayden Panettiere & Jana Kramer

Stars let loose with hair & fashion at the CMT Music awards!

Twice the Sparkle Carrie Underwood won two CMT awards–Video of the Year and best Collaborative Video with Brad Paisley. A one-of-a-kind sequined mini doesn’t need a dramatic ‘do, so Carrie leaves her hair natural looking, flowing waves with a little curl at the ends.

All that Glitters is Silver  Miranda Lambert is the proud winner for best Female Video title for her Over You. While there were sparklers (sparkling dresses) everywhere, Miranda and Carrie still stood out. They took a similar approach to their hair, but Miranda opted for more curl.

Party Dress, Party Curls Hayden Panettiere kicks up her heels, literally, as if celebrating her role on the new drama Nashville. To match the mood, she pins up her long hair to look way shorter than it is. All hair around the face is lifted and rolled off the face.

Flowing Gown, Flowing Hair Jordin Sparks wears a pretty, unique update on the evening dress. The modern-romance look cries out for classic AND sexy. curls. Long, layered curls rise to the challenge.

Natural Blush, Dreamy ‘Do Jana Kramer’s dress is the neutral blush color that’s so popular now. In addition to being trendy, it doesn’t shout, “Look at my dress.” It whispers, “Look at me!” Keeping it subtle, Jana chooses the soft touch of spiral curls topped with a sleek crown.

Pretty in Pink & Blond Kellie Pickler looks thoroughly modern in a short dress, casual coif, daring cleavage and Flapper-like fringe. Kellie’s long bangs blend into lightly layered, lightly curled length.

Jordin Sparks set to ‘Sparkle’ in movie by the same name!

Wearing glam hair and fashion, Jordin looks every bit of the movie star she is becoming with the release of Sparkle in August.*

At Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, Jordin stood out from the crowd, bringing a breath of fresh air to an industry that can be jaded, not-so-pretty and just plain tired.

Here you can see why the American Idol has become a style icon. Her look is an inventive mix of Retro and Avant-Garde. Close up, Jordin’s gown has a futuristic vibe with its slit-neck, notched bodice. But a full-figure view reveals the feminine skirt flowing from the leather top.

A fringe benefit of the strapless couture is the bare décolletage that draws all eyes up to Jordin’s striking facial features, which are also highlighted with hair swept back. Impeccable makeup and elegant earrings polish off the look.

Jordin’s hairstyle is fairly easy for anyone who has thick, curly locks. Simply apply your fave styling product to damp hair. Scrunch while drying naturally or while using a diffused blow-dryer. Comb hair back but loosen it before securing for a softer finish.

*Jordin and Whitney Houston  worked together in the movie Sparkle and contributed to the soundtrack. Their Celebrate duet from the film was the last song Whitney recorded before her untimely death.
