Olivia’s Waves

Olivia Munn looked summer perfect on the ESPY Awards red carpet with easy volume and beachy waves. Her tresses were styled by hairdresser Chris Appleton, who used products from the Matrix StyleLink Mineral line. “The inspiration for this look was a gritty yet effortless look—all about texture,” shares Appleton. “Her dress was a beautiful white gown and we wanted to do a look that complimented it. Olivia’s hair is very soft, so we needed to make sure that we added a lot of the right products to make her hair look as textured as possible.”

Here’s the step-by-step, as explained by Appleton…

1. 

First, we started with wet hair and applied  Matrix StyleLink Mineral Rough Me Up Salt Infused Spray throughout her hair and through the roots. Then we blow-dried her hair upside down all the way through the root until completely dry. There was a lot of focus on the roots of her hair to ensure that we were getting volume throughout the look.

2. 

When the hair was completely dry, I applied Matrix StyleLink Mineral Airy Builder Mousse throughout Olivia’s hair to prep it for curling, before back-combing her hair at the roots for more texture.

3. 

Section by section, I began curling the hair. I sprayed each section with Matrix StyleLink Mineral Playback Dry Shampoo, using it as a texturizer. I wanted the look to have a variation of different sized waves, so I used a 2” curling iron at the root of her hair, but then switched to a 3” curling iron at the end of her hair in order to create a more natural, effortless look.

4. 

To finish off the look, I cocktailed the Matrix StyleLink Mineral Playback Dry Shampoo with Matrix StyleLink Mineral Booster, mixing the two together in the palms of my hands. Then, I ran my hands through Olivia’s hair to put the final texture touches on the look!
