Dancing with the Stars
elimination was a shocker — goodbye, Kristin Cavallari! — but what wasn’t so shocking? Seeing Brooke Charvet looking chic on the dance floor in a crystal-covered Mandalay gown. We particularly loved her hairstyle on Monday night’s show: a sleek, straight pony pushed to one side.
“To get this look you will want to work with a smoothing product such as Oribe’s Supershine, which will add moisture to the cuticle,” he tells PEOPLE. “If your hair tends to feel dry on the ends, Shu Uemura’s Essence Absolute will hydrate dry ends, leaving you with a really polished blowout.”
To attain the shiny, pin-straight look, “a boar-bristle brush with nylon quills will give you the tension and polishing you need to smooth the hair and get the shine you see in Brooke’s hair,” Olson says. “I start my sectioning from the bottom and move my way to the top. To keep the sections neat I clip up the hair that I am not currently drying.”
But be sure to stay conscious of your blow-drying, too. “A key point to remember is to blow-dry the hair in the direction from the roots to the ends which will smooth the cuticle and give you maximum shine,” Olson advises. “If your hair isn’t quite long enough for this look you can use Hotheads hair extensions as a quick, easy fix to add length and volume. In as little as an hour you can put in an entire head of extensions. Finish the ends with the round brush to create some movement by either flipping the hair out or curling it under.”
