Achieve Olivia Culpo Perfection with ghd

You are here

Achieve Olivia Culpo’s gorgeous Oscars red carpet ponytail with a little help from ghd Brand Ambassador, Justine Marjan.

We were inspired by the hairstyles seen on the Marchesa Fashion Show runway, particularly a hairstyle that featured a deep side parting and separation around the face. We wanted to balance the feminine glam of the dress with edgy and fashion forward hair.

Tips and Technique
  1. Prep damp hair with TRESemme Extra Hold Gel at the roots and use TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shine Serum at the ends.
  2. Create a deep side parting and then use the ghd air hairdryer (£99) and a fine tooth comb to dry the hair forward on the face.
  3. Blow-dry the rest of the hair straight using a smoothing brush.
  4. Spray TRESemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray and run the ghd platinum styler (£165) through the hair from roots to ends.
  5. Separate the back section of the hair from the front and gather the back section into a low ponytail with a smoothing brush that has been sprayed with TRESemme Keratin Smooth Hairspray, and then secure with elastic.
  6. Add the front sections to the back of the ponytail and secure with elastic.
  7. Add a Rapunzel of Sweden ponytail extension piece, and then flat iron the length of the ponytail with the ghd platinum styler (£165).
  8. Run TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shine Serum through the length of the ponytail.
  9. Wrap the base of the ponytail with a velvet ribbon and secure with a Bobby pin, tucking in the ends.
  10. Spray a toothbrush with TRESemme Keratin Smooth Hairspray and lightly brush the top of the hair to smooth any flyaways.
