OSCAR'S LEADING LADY
Katherine Heigl may not have been up for an Oscar this year, but she rocked the red carpet, thanks to her personal hairstylist Sean Flanigan, who used Joico JoiGel Medium Styling Lotion and Design Collection Spray Dry Wax, Gloss Wax and Humidity Blocker—hey, it was raining that night—to give her a sense of old Hollywood glamour. —M.D.
Love Thy Curls
Editorial and celebrity stylist Anthony Dickey has introduced a line of cleansers, conditioners and styling aids called Hair Rules that are specially formulated for kinky, curly and wavy hair. Dickey, who styles such curly-haired celebrities as Minnie Driver, Kelis and Sarah Jessica Parker, says that he was inspired to create the line because so many haircare products on the market are too drying for textured hair, which is prone to being dehydrated, brittle and frizzy. Designed for wash-and-wear results, the paraben-free, ultrahydrating products contain a combination of moisturizers, strengtheners and shine-enhancing ingredients. hairrules.com —L.A.

It's well-known that sunscreen should be worn daily to protect against skin cancer and the sun's harmful UV rays, but it's easy to forget to reapply when you're having a good time. Thankfully, the Wallaroo Hat Company has a line of flattering and functional toppers that block almost 98 percent of the sun's rays. Versatile and comfortable, they're also a fashionable way to protect sensitive skin after a cosmetic procedure. Each hat has been fitted with a drawstring so that one size fits most everyone. wallaroohats.com —C.W.
