Laura Prepon, one of the stars of the hit series Orange is the New Black, got a chance to move away from the orange jumpsuit she usually wears and slip into an emerald-colored Gustavo Cadile gown with a peplum fitted top and structured lines.

Inspired by the graphic lines of Laura’s satin gown, celebrity stylist Jonathan Colombini decided on a modern day French twist, taking the iconic hairstyle and updating it with texture and proportions.



Here’s how he explained how to get the look:

To get the look, Jonathan first applied Joico Body Luxe Volumizing Elixir to Laura’s damp hair, followed by Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Restorative Styling Oil on the ends. Next he power-dried the hair to about 80% dry, and then finished and smoothed all strands with a round brush.  To produce a “gritty” interior texture, he applied dry shampoo to dry hair and then misted with Joico’s NEW Flip Turn Volumizing Finishing Spray, which he calls his “new obsession!”  Next, he created a deep side part with a dramatic, side-swept bang and gathered all of Laura’s hair on one side—a bit higher than where a traditional ponytail would sit when forming a roll–using a bungee elastic.  Once secured, he loosened the gathered hair for a more casual, effortless look, then rolled up the ends to fashion the upstyle. 

Finally, to maintain the “undone” vibe of the style and to create a contemporary texture, he released a few wisps of hair around the hairline and within the crown before setting the look in place with Joico’s NEW IronClad Thermal Heat Protectant Spray.



“We had a blast getting ready,” said Jonathan about being part of Laura’s Emmys “glam squad.” “And thanks to Joico’s new Flip Turn and IronClad sprays, she will be able to feel confident about her hair and enjoy herself all evening!”
