The Look: Sultry Brunette

“Brunettes are the best right now!” says Perry, who worked with Ratajkowski to maintain her gorgeous brown shade. “We are maintaining her hair after she went red for the summer. The color is based on her natural tone. After glossing Emily’s hair, we did OLAPLEX Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask to seal the deal.”

If you want to maintain a dark brunette hair color, Jenna says, “Gloss your hair regularly and wash with OLAPLEX No. 4 and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner. I love the OLAPLEX Broad Spectrum Chelating Treatment before any color service to create a clean slate.” 

The Look: Soft Textured Version of a Classic Pared Back Low Bun

“Chic and subtle which has been a key theme this season to complement the gowns,” says Halley. “For Maude, the look was inspired by the elegance of her dress and its textured black finish. It was a classic bun, but we wanted to keep a coolness to the hair, so we kept the actual finish soft and textured.”

  1. Begin with towel dried hair and work OLAPLEX No. 6 Bond Smoother through in a medium distribution and then create a soft blowout with a medium round bristle brush. Both a center and side parting work for this so I advise to go with what suits your face shape best. 
  2. Once finished take 3 taps of OLAPLEX No. 7 Bonding Oil worked into your palms and spread evenly through to help separate and add shine. 
  3. For styling, allow hair to fall gently forwards before pulling back loosely into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure with a hair elastic. 
  4. Finally, using bobby pins and grips, work into a small bun to finish.

To complete the look, Halley says, “As this is designed to have a softness to the finish, you want to stay away from any heavy sprays and gels when pulling hair into a bun and instead only finish with a very light misting of light hairspray at the end to tame any flyaways.”
