Aveeno and Patrick Melville

Patrick Melville is one of the fashion industry’s top hairstylists. With countless magazine credits and an enviable roster of Hollywood heavyweights relying on his skills, he is the ultimate insider. Melville, who has styled the likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry, Heidi Klum, Demi Moore, Molly Sims, Sharon Stone, Rosario Dawson, and Brooke Shields, took his skilled hands to our hair last week and gave us an incredible long layered cut and blowout. In the midst of our transformation, we talked Hollywood hair and current trends with the expert stylist.

How do you recommend women care for their hair?
Use sulfate-free products like Aveeno Pure Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner to leave hair smooth and shiny. Plus, getting regular haircuts will keep you from looking drab.

What are some of the hot hair trends?
It's not about following the trends—it's about finding the style that works for you, that complements your hair texture and the shape of your face.

What looks have been dominating the red carpet?
I noticed three April magazine covers all had the same messy, sexy look. Ladies have been wearing their hair a bit longer, which works well for beach waves.
