Hairstyle How-to: Miss Universe Olivia Culpo

Hairstylist Albert Luiz created this patently unpageanty hairstyle for Miss Universe Olivia Culpo–and I’m loving it. Here’s how he got the look using CHI products. 

“To create Olivia’s goddess-meets-fairy hairstyle, I first separated the front from the back at the ears with a center part for the front. I used the CHI 3/4″ ceramic spring iron and CHI Magnified Volume finishing spray to create horizontal barrel curls directed towards the center back. I did horizontal barrels from center parting to ears with the ends of hair pointing back.

I used the Royal Treatment White Truffle Foundation to help define and smooth the back curls as I separated then joined them all into a cascade of curls. Doing the same to each side while softly twisting the entire side section and securing to center back. Soft texture is a must to maintain a whimsical effect.

Then return to the back length to lift and pin in order to create the goddess effect of times forgotten. CHI Magnified Volume Finishing Spray helps to secure the stile without making it look dated and stiff.”

What do you think of Olivia Culpo’s 2013 Miss USA look? Yay or nay?
