Celebrity hairstylist Laura Polko works with stars like Chrissy Teigen, Demi Lovato, Kim Kardashian and Lea Michele, but you don’t need a glam squad to copy these cool hair looks at home.
We all want celeb-inspired hairstyles, without the celebrity stylist! Luckily, Laura Polko, who works on just about everyone in Hollywood is breaking down some easy styles you can wear this summer.
LOOSE WAVES LIKE KIM KARDASHIAN AND DEMI LOVATO:
“Start by prepping the hair with salt spray for texture. Starting in the back, section out 1/2 inch sections, and without brushing out each section first, wrap the pieces around with a flat iron. Continue up the head in either direction. When you get to the front near the center part, direct the sections away from the face. Shake out the hair and finger comb — do NOT brush.”
CHRISSY TEIGEN’S ELASTIC WRAPPED PONYTAIL:
“Start by parting the hair down the middle in a center part and using a blowdryer and a Mason Pearson brush to smooth the hair down on either side of the part. Brush the hair back into a low ponytail and secure with a scunci black hair tie. Take a long cord, elastic, or leather and tie a scunci hair tie on either end of the long elastic. wrap the elastic around the pony in whatever way you wish and use the hair tie at the other end to secure off.”
LEA MICHELE’S BRAIDED PONYTAIL:
“Using hairspray and a Mason brush, brush the hair up and back into a super high pony, ensuring the hair in the pony is smooth and there aren’t any bumps. Secure with a scunci hair tie. Brush out the pony and use pomade in your hands while braiding to ensure it stays tight and contained. Braid the hair tight all the way to the very end and secure with a clear elastic. Spray with hairspray to tame flyaways.”
