Last night in Sydney, Giorgio Armani opened their highly-anticipated beauty counter in Myer. Celebrities including Laura Dundovic and Zoe Marshall turned out to help celebrate the luxe affair, but there was one more lady to catch our attention — or rather, her hair did. Nicole Warne — also know as her blogger alias, Gary Pepper Vintage — sported hair so glossy, we almost wanted to run up and touch it. There's a few tips and tricks you can do at home to get shinier hair, keep reading.
What's more Australian than a gorgeous girl leaving the beach with sexy, salty, textured hair? We say: nothing. With Australia Day fast approaching (um, it's tomorrow), we've got your nails covered and your fun outfit sorted out nicely, but the easiest way to amp up your Summer sex appeal and overall cool-girl beauty look is by spritzing a good quality sea salt spray through your locks. A few of us here at Sugar are big fans at the stuff, so we've tried and tested most of these. And let us tell you, they've got the goods. They don't weigh your hair down or leave it looking greasy, and they actually give you that sexy hair you've always wanted — think Lara Bingle, Sienna Miller and Jodi Gordon. Click through to see which ones we recommend, then spritz your way into your Oz Day delecbrations!
So you know we're going a little loco on the Australiana theme this week — but what better time to celebrate all that is great about Aussie celebs and products made Down Under than the lead-up to Australia Day? We always look forward to events like the Logies and any Australian film premiere, because we get to see stars including Jodi Gordon, Lara Bingle and Rose Byrne flexing their makeup muscles. We asked the Sugar eds to pick their all-time favourite Australian beauty moment; plus the product they'll be purchasing to get thy look at home.
Easy, care-free beauty is something to look forward to in the Summer, but becoming delinquent with your daily upkeep can cause your hair and skin to go from glowing to dull very quickly.

If you've always been a fan of the Brigitte Bardot teased-up bump but don't have the time, willpower, or hair spray to pull it off, here's your solution: Zooey Deschanel's vintage up 'do, which she debuted at the Fox All-Star Party. Instead of teasing and tousling the crown of her hair, Zooey created a stylish half-up, half-down style by pulling the top section of her hair into a bun. This created the illusion of a voluminous bump without the hassle.
To mimic her look, start off by spraying your dry hair with a texturising spray like Evo Mr Fantastic Texture Spray ($28.46). Separate your hair into top and bottom sections and pin the bottom section off. If the top section of your hair needs a little more texture, just quickly backcomb it. Next, twist the top section into a larger bun and secure it with pins. Release the bottom section, curl the ends, and finish with a mist of hair spray.

We know her best for that Victoria's Secret bod and her perfect model style, but Miranda Kerr is also a dark horse in the off-duty beauty stakes. She's a big fan of low-key hair, but we think her top knot on the streets on New York yesterday is definitely one to try at home. The proof is in the Christmas pudding that you don't need to try hard to make this hairstyle work — it's all about letting those baby hairs and flyaways do their thing.
Start with second-day hair, and add some salt spray to the mid-lengths and ends, we love Evo Salty Dog Beach Cocktail Spray ($26.95). Rough dry the product in using the hot setting on your hairdryer, and then leave for a few minutes to cool (the secret to any lasting hairstyle is allowing your strands to cool, and set). Once you have that edgy texture, whip it up into a messy bun and gently create some flyaways by rubbing the palm of your hand in circular motions around the rest of your head. Voilà! The perfect off-duty model beauty look.
