Fashion week is just beginning, but Olivia Culpo is already poised to be one of our celeb favorites. Case in point is the gorgeous curly hairstyle she wore for Lauren Conrad’s debut runway show. Keep reading for tips from her hairstylist on how he created the look!
Olivia Culpo, 23, definitely got the beauty memo when she attended former reality TV star Lauren Conrad‘s New York Fashion Week show sporting a very similar hair and makeup look to the models that walked the runway! Major glam girls like Chrissy Teigen and Ashley Tisdale were also at the show, but it was Olivia’s ethereal look that caught our attention — and Matrix SOCOLOR Celebrity Stylist, Nick Stenson, gave us the how-to.
“I love Olivia’s lob, and I wanted to give her tousled, romantic curls with a center part to show off those amazing cheekbones,” Nick told us. To get those curls, he made sure hair was squeaky clean by cleansing hair with MATRIX Biolage Cleansing Conditioner for Medium Hair.
For the styling, while Olivia’s hair was still damp, Nick applied MATRIX StyleLink Heat Buffer Thermal Styling Spray to protect it while he blow dried her hair (and from the curling iron action, later). Once her hair was dry, Nick parted it down the center and curled the hair in sections around a one-inch curling iron, alternating the direction of the curls. On the sections at the front, he curled Olivia’s hair away from her face, setting the style with MATRIX StyleLink Texture Builder Messy Finish Spray for hold and volume.

For the rest of her beauty look, Olivia went with luminous skin and natural flushes of pink on her cheeks and lips. Playing up her amazing brows, Olivia kept her eye makeup simple with oversized lashes and an eye-opening white shimmer around the inner corners of her eyes.
