what makes Brazilian Blowout ZERO different from other professional smoothing treatments on the market?
Most professional smoothing treatments are formulated using a methylene glycol based bonding system.
Brazilian Blowout ZERO is formulated with a breakthrough Plant-Derived KeraSafe Bonding System. This bonding system releases 0% Formaldehyde before, during or after the in-salon smoothing treatment.
What is KeraSafe?
KeraSafe is a proprietary blend of ingredients combining the original Brazilian Blowout Super Nutrient Complex, rich with powerful smoothing ingredients such as camu camu and annatto seed, with a highly innovative Plant-Derived Bonding System that effectively smoothes and seals the cuticle by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and promote shine.
How does Brazilian Blowout ZERO perform compared to the original Brazilian Blowout?
- ZERO difference in performance.
- Same smooth, frizz-free hair in 90 minutes.
- Same process with zero downtime.
- Same incredible results for up to 12 weeks.
- Same deep conditioning and radiant shine.
- Same improvement in overall health of the hair.
- Same Acai Aftercare Products
Is the in-salon ZERO treatment performed the same way as the original Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment?
YES! The application and treatment process are exactly the same for Brazilian Blowout ZERO as for the original Brazilian Blowout treatment, and the end-result is the same as well!
Are you discontinuing the original Brazilian Blowout Professional Smoothing Solution?
Absolutely not! The original Brazilian Blowout Professional Smoothing Treatment will continue to be offered based on ever-increasing demand for the product.
Why did you choose to launch Brazilian Blowout ZERO if you are confident about the safety and integrity of the original Brazilian Blowout solution?
We remain 100% confident with regards to the safety and integrity of the original BB treatment and will continue to sell this product as it remains incredibly popular throughout the U.S. and worldwide.
Brazilian Blowout ZERO is a NEW Professional Smoothing Treatment alternative that utilizes a plant-derived bonding system.
A number of stylists and consumers may feel more comfortable using this system as a personal preference.

EMILIO PUCCI F/W ’11
“She’s still Pucci’s sexy girl, but this season she’s got more power and toughness to her,” says Makeup Artist Lisa Butler on the makeup look, “it’s a bit of a warrior-like green messy eye, so she’s cool, not trying hard. It references Charlotte Rampling and Kate Moss — not in the way they look, but more their sexy, raw attitude.”
Butler applied MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder on the waterline of lower lashes. She also blended MAC Eye Kohl in Tarnish and blended it out straight out. She made lashes feathery and fanned with MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara in Black, and groomed brows with MAC Clear Brow Set.
MAC Studio Finish Concealer was applied over the skin only where needed for a natural finish. Butler blended MAC Cremeblend Blush in Ladyblush and Posey together across the cheeks for a flush. She highlighted the skin with MAC Cream Color Base in Luna and Pearl.
Butler hydrated and conditioned the lips with MAC Lip Conditioner SPF 15 and dabbed the tiniest amount of MAC Lipstick in Girl About Town on the inside of the lips to look more modern than retro-beige.
C’N'C COSTUME NATIONAL F/W ’11
“The label is always very young, very urban, very direted by music…” says Makeup Artist Lyne Desnoyers, “yet this season w’re flirting with 60′s minimalism with a gorgeous take on beiges and matte textures enlivened with a little gloss.”
Makeup Artist Lyne Desnoyers applied MAC Pro Gloss Texture along the lash line, and groomed the lashes with MAC Clear Brow Set.
Desnoyers mixed MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer with moisturizer in varying consistencies to create a perfected, yet still real skin. Then Lyne patted MAC Pro Gloss Texture on top of the cheekbones, bridge of nose, and cupid’s bow.
Prepping the lips with MAC Lip Conditioner SPF 15, she then applied MAC Glamglass in Have to Have It (available autumn/winter 2011) and worked it into the lips as perfectly as if it were a bright red, only to create a chic matte nude.
A mix between Charlotte Rampling and Anita Pallenberg inspired the makeup at Chloé, according to Charlotte Tilbury for MAC Cosmetics.
Tilbury used a tiny bit of concealer mixed in and blended out over models’ faces, plus a bronzer on their cheekbones and noses.
She’s been on the hippy trail, this girl,” said Tilbury, adding a few freckles were dotted on noses, as well. A chocolate-color eye shadow from MAC was applied below and above peepers, which got lots of mascara, “slightly cloggy,” both on top and bottom.
Eyebrows were gelled up and filled in with two MAC pencils, Lingering and Fling. And the brand’s Freckletone lipstick was used under powder.
Hairstylist Luigi Mureno created long, blown out tresses with a slight wave.

GARETH PUGH F/W
“Religious Iconography,” says Makeup Artist Alex box on the inspiration for the Gareth Pugh look.
Box glued Gold or Blue laser cut fabric pieces under the eye. The blue fabric is a bespoke retroreflective fabric that turns pure white when hit with a bright light (like a flash bulb). MAC Clear Brow Set lightly grooms the brow.
MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation was applied to even out skin tone, avoiding the eye area. Box topped cheekbones with MAC Clear Lip Glass for a mirror-shine effect.
Lips were hydrated with MAC Lip Conditioner SPF 15.

ZAC POSEN F/W
“There’s an insect influence to the clothes that can be seen in his construction technique and patterns,” says Makeup Artist Kabuki, “my inspiration for the makeup came from art nouveau glassware and the shimmering colours on the armored backs of beetles.”
