Nearly one billion people around the world do not have access to clean drinking water, and 2.6 billion still lack basic sanitation, according to www.waterday.org. World Water Day, celebrated annually on March 22nd, was established by the United Nations in 1992 and focuses attention on the world's water crisis, as well as the solutions to address it.

Men's Oscar Hair: Get The Look

This year, the men at the Oscars shined as bright as the women with their perfectly coiffed styles that had heads turning. Jenny Balding, Redken for Men Consultant, gives her takes on the best looking ‘dos at the big night and trends in men’s grooming for 2010: “For 2010 men are really enjoying more refined, classic hair cuts. The perfect example – Mad Men. This polished, clean style is going strong and every guy from the polished professional to the active outdoorsy type is asking for it now. Another look that is popular with my clients is a cut that is heavier in the front and kept shorter around the back, a kind rocker look, think Robert Pattinson!”.

Get the Leading Men’s Red Carpet Looks:

Zac Efron’s Multi-Textured Mane
Recommended Product: Redken For Men high rise hard wax

How-to: use a small amount of product in hands and rub together to loosen up the product with the heat from your hands. Apply hair in all directions, starting from the back. This will give that multi-textured finish that Zac Ephron sported on Sunday.

Ryan Reynolds Laid-Back Waves
Recommended Product: Redken For Men clean spice conditioning shampoo and outplay texture putty

How to: Prep hair with Redken For Men’s new clean spice shampoo to moisturize and condition thicker locks to look healthy all night long. Apply outplay texture putty, a softer paste which will create that definition and texture but still looking slightly polished.

Bradley Cooper’s Swept Back Style
Recommended Product: Redken For Men get groomed finishing cream

How to: Have hair slightly damp and work the cream into the hair using small amounts at a time. You can always add more product to the desired shine and control. This will give you that loosely pushed back effect off of the face.
