If you’ve opened up your Internet browser at all this week, you probably already know that Emma Stone has been straight up killing it while promoting her latest film, The Amazing Spiderman 2. While we love all of her recent red carpet looks, the vintage-inspired curls and pastel blue eyeshadow Emma rocked in Germany had us completely smitten.
To create Emma’s soft, brushed out tendrils, start by creating a deep side part in your hair and wrapping small sections around a 1-inch curling wand (we love this one by Enzo Milano). You’ll want to wrap these curls in towards your face, even though the motion feels a bit counter-intuitive. When you release the curl, hold the rolled hair in place with your finger and pin it (you can pick up inexpensive curl clamps at your local beauty supply store, or here at Sally Beauty). Work though each layer of your hair until you reach the top, where your final curls should stop about two or three inches from your part. Give the curls about 15-20 minutes to cool completely before you begin to unravel them. After you’ve removed all of the pins, flip your head over and gently run your fingers through your hair. If you still see more coils than you do soft, conjoining waves, run a soft-bristled brush through your hair. Slide a bobby pin above the arch of your eyebrow (depending on which side of your part contains more hair) to secure the look. Set with a light-medium hold hairspray.
If you love Emma’s pastel blue eyeshadow, we’ll show you how to rock a similar look here!

Dozens of your favorite celebrities are teaming up against cancer this Friday, September 7, 2012 for the third annual Stand Up 2 Cancer telecast. Will you be joining them?
A-listers Gwyneth Paltrow (who is the executive producer this year), Julia Roberts, Halle Berry, Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, Samuel L. Jackson, Emma Stone and more are set to appear during the commercial-free show, which starts at 8 p.m. on multiple networks. Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Alicia Keys and Tim McGraw will also be performing.
And if that’s not enough to grab your interest: stars will be manning the phones themselves.
Stand Up 2 Cancer has raised more than $180 million for cancer research since movie producer Laura Ziskin launched the organization in 2008. (That’s her, above, with Paltrow at the 2010 event.) Ziskin, who produced the Spider-Man movies, lived with breast cancer for seven years before it tragically took her life in June 2011.
Besides tuning in, here are more ways you can get involved and help make a difference:
Launch A Star
Unfortunately, we all know someone who’s been affected by cancer. You can launch a star in a loved one’s honor to The Constellation for a $1 donation or more.
Start Your Own Group
Inspired yet? Stand Up 2 Cancer isn’t just a telecast—it’s a movement! The goal is to fund collaborative research among top scientists to speed up the discovery of lifesaving treatments, and that takes year-round fund-raising. If you’d like to host your own events to raise money for Stand Up 2 Cancer, check out this grassroots toolkit and learn more about the “dream teams” the organization is currently funding.

Emma Stone is one busy woman. Between wowing in red at the Met Gala this week and promoting her upcoming role in this summer’s The Amazing Spiderman, Stone found time to rally for a cause she cares about deeply: support for cancer survivors.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Stone served as host at the annual benefit luncheon for Gilda’s Club in New York, and she brought her mom Krista, a breast-cancer survivor, with her. Named after comedian Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989, Gilda’s Club opened in New York City in 1995 as a support and resource center for people living with cancer.
Who could forget Radner’s unforgettable characters from her days as one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live, such as Roseanne Roseannadanna? Stone definitely hasn’t: her mom introduced her to Radner’s work years ago, including her memoir It’s Always Something, and Stone’s been a fan ever since. In fact, when Stone hosted SNL last November, she paid homage to Radner in a much-talked-about bumper that ran near the end of the show. “Gilda is my biggest hero. Doing that photo shoot was so amazing for me,” she says.
It all came full-circle for Stone when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and joined a Gilda’s Club support group in Phoenix. “You can’t underestimate the power of finding people who are empathetic instead of just sympathetic,” Stone says. “It was so helpful to her. I wanted to be involved.”
Three and a half years later, her mom is doing well. But Stone continues to lend her celebrity for causes in her honor. She’s also been involved with the organization Stand Up 2 Cancer, and last Saturday she participated in NYC’s EIF Revlon Run/Walk, a fundraiser for women’s cancers, with pal Olivia Wilde. “I’ll be beating this drum forever,” Stone says.
There are now 20 Gilda’s Club centers across the country, with many more in development. To find a support group or make a donation, contact your local Gilda’s Club via this directory.
Happy Mother’s Day from the LHJ Health Ladies!
