Get the Look: Olivia Culpo's Boss Babe Pony


Joico Celebrity Hairstylist, Paul Norton, recently worked with actress and model Olivia Culpo to get her ready for the International Style Institute in Los Angeles. Paul created this flirty-meets-serious style he describes as “Power Babe.” Says Paul, "For Olivia's look… we decided to create a mix of serious girl boss vibes with a fun flirty texture." The end result is a super chic, super wearable style that’ll take your client from the board room to girls’ night. See Paul’s how-to so you can recreate the look, below!

Get the Look:

  1. “I started off by doing a simply blow out,” says Paul. “I blew Olivia's hair out with JoiWhip using a large round brush until fully dry.
  2. “I sprayed Joico Hair Shake from roots to end to create more texture. This also helps me have more control over the hair while still looking ‘undone.’
  3. “I finger-combed back the hair to create some dimension at the base.
  4. “I then gathered the hair into a mid-level ponytail, confining it with a clear elastic band.
  5. “I took a 1-inch piece of hair from the ponytail and wrapped it around the elastic to conceal it, keeping the hair in place with 2 bobby pins.
  6. “Taking a 1 1/4-inch curling iron, I grabbed sections of the ponytail to create large bends throughout to add more texture.
  7. “I took a large tooth comb to break up the curls and create a fuller effect.
  8. “Lastly, I used Joico Flip Turn hairspray to ensure the bends would hold as well as to detail the edges of the hairline for any unwanted fly-aways.”
