Celebrity Hairstylist Castillo used the ghd Air ELITE Hairdryer and Platinum Styler to create Priyanka Chopra’s sleek, chic hairstyle at this year’s Emmys – learn HOW TO!
“Since the dress was custom-made, I really wanted the hair to be cohesive with the vision of the designer – sleek and chic,” said Castillo.
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “I started with a wash which is the foundation. I used MOP mixed greens shampoo and stuck with a moisturizing one to help her hair withstand humidity and heat from the tools. Next I used MOP’s pear detangler and combed through her hair to untangle and minimize frizz.”
“I rough blow-dried the hair using the ghd Air ELITE Hairdryer until it was about 80% dry, then brushed through it with the ghd Paddle Brush to take out any tangles. I created the side part, then section by section I flat brush blow-dried the hair straight and then went back over each section with the ghd Platinum Styler from mid hair shaft to end.”
“Once I was done straightening, I took a dollop sized amount of MOP orange peel molding cream and coated root to mid hair shaft the side of her hair. I brushed it through and then with a twisting motion I twisted it behind her ear and down the back of her neck. I repeated this same technique, minus the twist and gathered her hair into a low ponytail, secured it with a hair bungee and wrapped a section of hair around the bungee to conceal it,” said Castillo.
