    >> both on the red carpet at the oscars, their hair looked so shiny. i get so many questions. how do they get their hair so shiny? they were both using this oil treatment. it's a nut from the amazon and the nut gives you 600% more strength and is said to revive brittle hair. if you have been to holiday parties, teasing or blow cdrying all winter this revives your style. you add it at night before bed to get an extra boost or also use it to style and keep flyaways away.

    >> smells good, too.

    >> it absorbs, is light weight and doesn't weigh it down.

    >> next, rita hizan.

    >> and her hair looks healthy.

    >> she does jessica simpson 's gorgeous locks. she has hair color between treatments so you don't have to spend as much money. we love this in the makeup room. it covers the grays. her root concealer. brand new that launched yesterday are foaming glosses. it gives you a little bit of shine and helps maintain color. so you can get another two weeks out before you have to recolor which is damaging it again. this will help your hair look prettier and be healthier.

    >> in the shower, it's a foam and light weight . easy to use. anybody can do it.

    >> this is a new take on the curling iron , i guess.

    >> i like this one. it's called curly pops. this is from bedhead and it has a unique hour glass shape. if you wrap your hair using the glove at the root you have a looser wave, tighter in the middle and looser again.

    >> i don't understand how that works.

    >> you put it in your hair and wrap it, it won't kink at the root. a lot of times it looks like shirly temple at the end. this is a looser, beach wave.

    >> this color is kooky.

    >> i was in florida and i saw so many moms trying streaks of hair color . instead of going for something permanent these are color rubs. it's a powder.

    >> you do it.

    >> it's not a spray.

    >> try it. you take your thumb and add the highlight.

    >> cute.

    >> and it comes out pink. if you put hair spray it won't get on your clothes.

    >> i like that. all right. it's only my credibility.

    >> it can wash out and it gives you an easy pop of color.

    >> it looks so natural. what about skin?

    >> we talked about bb cream. that's a blemish balm with everything in one. it has spf, nourishing ingredients and more. they have seven different tints here. this is the miracle skin transformer. i swear by this. it will give you a primer and set your makeup. this was the first one at drugstores by garnier. it's more affordable. this one is at miracle skin transformer.com which is great with more variety in shades.

    >> what do we have here?

    >> deodorant. it's brand new from dove called clear tones. it targets the dark discoloration under your arms which is great for tank top season. st. tropez has another new product.

    >> bronzer.

    >> one night only. you don't have streaks.

    >> it really picks up the pink in your hair. what's this?

    >> adele has inspired people with the winged liner and so has angelina jolie . this is a felt-tip pen. it's really easy from maybe maybelline. you have so much more control. there are tips at their website. full brows are another trend.

    >> no unibrow but fill them out.

    >> this is a cool invention. my couture came out with blush and bronzer papers. they have innovative foundation papers. it's like a blotting paper because it controls oil but it gives you foundation. so what's fantastic is you don't need a brush or compact. you have even coverage. it comes in three colors. brand new.

    >> you get a little bit of powder, too.

    >> it's powder in a paper. easy and light weight . something all women will be asking about. cry baby mascara.com.

    >> perfect.

    >> this just hit salons in the last two weeks. semipermanent mascara. on average it costs $35 for the service. you can go to the website. they will actually put on regular black mascara. we have a before and after. it looks unbelievable and lasts two weeks to have the mascara look. you don't have to reapply it. great for summer especially if you're outside.

    >> you can just cry you will all summer. sounds great.

    >> lastly, i like some of the new nail things in the stores. sally hansen did so well with the nail stickers they have them now for pedicures. and press-on nails are back.

    >> are they? i remember it well.

    >> impress has press on nails. my hands are pink from the hair color , but if you feel off the back, you can stick this on.

    >> oh, my gosh.

    >> remind yourself of the '80s.

From do-it-yourself hair helpers to innovative "foundation" papers, TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com'sBobbie Thomas shares the scoop on spring's best new beauty products.

Mane attractions
You’re hair is your best accessory, and new shine treatments offer your tresses more than just TLC. Couture Colour's Pequi Oil aims to revive dry or chemically treated hair, while taming frizz and mending split ends with moisture-restoring vitamins and nourishing oils in a quick-absorbing formula. In a clinical study, damaged hair was 600 percent stronger after just one application ($32, pequioil.com). If rich color is what you’re craving this season, Rita Hazan is your guru and Hollywood’s. From Jessica Simpson’s beautiful blonde waves to the rainbow-bright Katy Perry, Rita is the expert. Her brand new Foaming Color Glosses are shine enhancing and color-correcting. Like a ‘lipgloss’ for your locks, the lightweight foam will help you boost your natural shade or maintain you hue between visits ($26, Sephora.com).

For those looking for a fresh twist on the classic curling iron, Bed Head Styling has released Curlipops, a fun collection of tools with unique barrel shapes. The "Hourglass" iron is a favorite for adding loose volume at the root while providing a sexy curl with relaxed ends ($29.99, BedHeadstyling.com). And, if you're planning an evening out with the girls, why not try a temporary pop of color? Hot hair hues are a surprising trend that's been sweeping the country, from celebrities and soccer moms to teens and tweens. Splat's Washables and Hair Flair's Color Rubs are favorites that are easy to apply and easy to wash out (Splat Washables $6.99, Walgreens.com;Color Rubs $13, HairFlairs.com).

Skin solutions
The BB Cream craze (a.k.a. blemish balms or blemish bases) hit the U.S. last year — thanks to Dr. Jart’ssuccessful launch — and now the multi-tasking must-have is going mainstream with a new crop of followers this season. Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfector was the first BB Cream to drugstores this year to help you hydrate, nourish, even skintone, protect and correct imperfections, all in one quick application ($12.99, CVS.com). Although not exactly a BB Cream, Miracle Skin Transformer is another fantastic product that can help you streamline your skincare regimen, offering hydration, a priming base, a hint of color tint and SPF, just to name a few of its benefits ($48, MiracleSkinTransformer.com).

When it comes to getting even more glow, St. Tropez is celebrity favorite self-tanning solution. The brand introduced a wash-off bronzer last year but has re-launched a new version called One Night Only, which Oscar nominees and presenters debuted on the red carpet — it's a safe way to look get that sultry, sun-kissed look ($18, Sephora.com). And last but not least, Dove has introduced a personal hygiene product just in time for tank top and strapless dress season. Their brand new Clear Tone anti-perspirant and deodorant comes in both regular and clinical strength and can help target discoloration and redness caused by shaving ($4.99-$7.99, drugstore.com).

Makeup must-haves
Bold brows and cat eyes are making a major comeback this season. If you're looking to line your eyes a la Angelina Jolie or Adele, Maybelline’s new EyeStudio Eyeliner pen has a felt tip that stays moist, giving you a perfectly smooth stroke every time you apply, while their EyeStudio Brow Pencil will help you bring back Brooke Shields' supermodel-style arches ($7.99, Maybelline.com).

If excess oil is a concern, consider Mai Couture’s Foundation Papers, which can help you absorb oil while reapplying a touch of powder foundation at the same time, a perfect midday quick fix ($24, MaiCouture.com). And last but not least, there's been a breakthrough in the wonderful world of lashes: Cry Baby is a semi-permanent mascara that's applied by salon professional. Unlike a simple lash tint, Cry Baby can provide you with up to two weeks worth of dramatic volume, curl and color, all while being gentle on lashes ($25 & up; CryBabyMascara.com for salon locations).
