I sat down with glamazon and celebrity dancer Kym Johnson of the hit show Dancing with the Stars at Chicago’s Wit hotel to find out about the new Dancing with the Stars hair extension collection, her beauty secrets and what goes on behind the scenes. Too bad Kym and David Hasseloff where the first to go this season. She told me she was planning a dance with a Knight Rider theme. That would have been fun to watch! Hopefully this video, shot in the bustling lobby, will make up for it. You may think I’m being a suck-up, but I have to say, Kym really is one of the sweetest, down-to-earth, friendly celebs I’ve met. She’s like sunshine! Er, maybe that’s the effect of her adorable Aussie accent.
Before I chatted with Kym, I had a fun hairstyling session where I got to try on all the different styles in the line, which ranges from around $20 to $50. I was also pleased to find out you can use hot tools on all of the hair. Below are pics of me modeling some of my favorite pieces.
Wearing the same combo of extensions Kym’s wearing in the video: Glamorama and Salsaloosa.
Look Ma, I’ve got bangs, thanks to Bango Tango, and long hair, courtesy of Go! Go! Girl.
If you want to get your hands on these extensions now, four styles are currently available at Ulta. The rest will be sold on HSN starting Jan. 1.
Below are links to the products I featured on the NBC 5 TV segment:
After hearing the live performances on the American Music Awards, it became obvious you don’t have to be a good singer to be famous. You just need autotunes…and great hair. Celebrities were parting ways on the red carpet, showing off sleek locks slicked into harsh side and middle parts. While I’m a fan of Honor’s mom Jessica Alba’s strong ‘do and Katy Perry’s deep side part, Taylor Swift’s straight mane and edgy bangs win the award for best hair in my book. Which celeb style is your favorite?
