WHO: Actress Selena Gomez
HAIR BY: Celebrity Hairstylist Marissa Marino for Olivia Garden
INSPIRATION: We wanted the hair up so the dress could be the focal point of the look. Selena wanted a high voluminous ponytail which really complemented the dress.
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: To achieve this look, I started by blow drying the hair with the Olivia Garden Ceramic + ion Hair Dryer while using the Olivia Garden Ceramic + ion Speed XL Hairbrush to create a sleek and smooth base.
Next, I used the Holding Gel and pulled her hair into a high ponytail, leaving out her front bang area and securing the initial ponytail with a hair tie. I then moved on to styling the base of the ponytail by curling with the NEW! Olivia Garden Titanium + ion 1.25” Curling Iron that allowed me to create the perfect volume and waves for the look. Following, I secured the curls with the Style Finishing Spray to stay in place during the show.
Then I brushed the bang area back into the ponytail with the Olivia Garden Ceramic + ion Supreme 100% Boar Brush in order to make the top of the ponytail seamless. I finished off the updo by wrapping around another band to properly secure the entire look. Lastly, I sprayed the hair with the Shine Mist for extra shine to last throughout the night.
