Raven-haired actress Laura Prepon, and the strong blonde Robin Wright were both styled by Celebrity Stylists Jonathan Colombini & Paul Norton for Joico! Both actresses looked stunning in their jaw dropping styles.
How To: Laura Prepon’s Style
Laura Prepon, one of the stars of the hit series Orange is the New Black, and a former That ‘70s Show cast member, rocked a modern version of the classic French twist for her Emmy red carpet appearance, courtesy of Celebrity Stylist Jonathan Colombini for Joico. Inspired by the graphic lines of Laura’s satin, emerald colored Gustavo Cadile gown, Colombini combined the iconic hairstyle’s classic shape with updated texture and proportions.
To get the look, Jonathan first applied Joico Body Luxe Volumizing Elixir to Laura’s damp hair, followed by Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Restorative Styling Oil on the ends. Next he power-dried the hair to about 80% dry, and then finished and smoothed all strands with a round brush.
To produce a “gritty” interior texture, he applied dry shampoo to dry hair and then misted with Joico’s NEW Flip Turn Volumizing Finishing Spray, which he calls his “new obsession!” Next, he created a deep side part with a dramatic, side-swept bang and gathered all of Laura’s hair on one side –a bit higher than where a traditional ponytail would sit when forming a roll– using a bungee elastic.
Once secured, he loosened the gathered hair for a more casual, effortless look, then rolled up the ends to fashion the upstyle. Finally, to maintain the “undone” vibe of the style and to create a contemporary texture, he released a few wisps of hair around the hairline and within the crown before setting the look in place with Joico’s NEW IronClad Thermal Heat Protectant Spray.
How To: Robin Wright’s Style
Channeling the composure and cool of her character on the Netflix smash hit House of Cards, actress Robin Wright sailed down the 2014 Emmy red carpet in a jaw-dropping, custom Ralph Lauren (completely) backless pantsuit, shoes and clutch – and a strong, elegant hairstyle to match, courtesy of Celebrity Stylist Paul Norton for Joico.
“The style of the suit –‘40s meets ‘70s– evokes two decades when women were most powerful and confident,” says Paul. “So we decided that a strong shape, directed off her face, was the best choice for the evening.”
To get the look, Paul reveals that he first shampooed and conditioned Robin’s hair with Joico Color Endure Violet Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner to ensure that her blonde tone would be cool and crisp in front of the red carpet cameras. Next, he combined small amounts of Joico Power Whip Whipped Foam with the NEW Joico Heat Set Blow-Out Perfecting Crème and worked the mixture through Robin’s hair roots to ends.
He dried top sections with a small, round, boar-bristle brush to create volume, and switched to a small Mason Pearson brush to smooth the side and back sections. When the hair was dry, he applied Joico Texture Boost Dry Spray Wax to his hands, emulsified and tousled the product into the hair to create separation and a natural texture effect.
Finally, he secured the sides with Joico’s NEW Flip Turn Volumizing Finishing Spray, and then spritzed his own fingers and “pinched” random sections to create definition throughout the longer top sections.
