7. L'ORÉAL ELNETT HAIR SPRAY It helps enhance texture and hold a style without stiffness. I use it on Paula Abdul during long days of filming American Idol.
8. MASON PEARSON EXTRA LARGE BRISTLE HAIR BRUSH It detangles hair without breaking it. I use it to tease, create updos and for blow-outs. It's my go-to tool whenever I work with Martha Stewart.
9. TURBO 2600 BLOW DRYER It's been my friend for the last 10 years.
10. MADELINE JOHNSON She's my best friend and publicist. She's my mentor who is always looking out for me.
This may be 2007 but it was the 1940s all over again on the fall runways at Gucci and Valentino, where movie-star glamour staged a major comeback. Think streamlined silhouettes with puffy shoulders, offset by stunning Veronica Lake-inspired hair and intense red lips. Now you've got the idea. —K.D.

ON THE EDGE
Harry Boocock of The Hair Studio in Leeds, England, cut, colored and styled this long, layered bob, one of the looks in his recent In Perspective collection. "The collection is all about shape and texture," he says. "I wanted to create looks with an extra edge." Boocock used a razor to produce the soft, textured layers in this style, and cut the fringe blunt for contrast. To achieve depth and shine, he colored the hair with Schwarzkopf Igora Vibrance 5.5 and blow-dried it with Schwarzkopf BC Daily Q10 Satin Spray and Osis Slick: Flattening Liquid. —L.A.
