Get the Look: Olivia Wilde’s Third Person Premiere Style

The Cinema Society & Revlon Host A Screening Of Sony Pictures Classics' "Third Person" - Arrivals

Olivia Wilde is a girl about town – from catching the Nets game, to attending the CFDA Fashion Awards, this new mom has been running all over New York City and today was no exception. After stopping by The Late Show with David Letterman, Olivia then jetted to the premiere of her new movie, Third Person, where her smooth waves stood up to NYC’s soaring temperatures and humidity.

Celebrity Stylist Rebekah Forecast revived Olivia’s blowout and worked with her natural texture to create soft waves that perfectly framed her face. “It’s sticky and humid out, so I didn’t want her hair to look or feel too heavy or weighed down,” said Forecast. “I wanted to give her a style that enhanced her natural wave and looked smooth and effortless.”

Whether you’re reviving a blowout or working with your natural wave after air drying your hair, here are Rebekah’s tips to get chic loose waves at home:

1.       Part dry hair down the center and mist with the Herbal Essences Tea-Lightfully Clean Blow Dry Prep Mist to get hair damp while also adding in a bit of moisture

2.       Work 1-2 pumps of Herbal Essences The Sleeker the Butter Smooth & Creamy Hair Milk through the ends to lock out humidity and leave hair smooth and nourished

3.       Blow dry hair on low heat, working your hands through your hair as you dry it to help enhance your natural wave

4.       Spray the Herbal Essences Set Me Up Medium Hold Hairspray before using the curling iron to help seal in the wave

5.       Take two inch sections of the hair and wrap the mid-shafts around the barrel of a 1.5” curling iron. If you have two different size curling irons, you can alternate between them to create more depth

6.       After curling each section, work 3-4 pumps of the Herbal Essences Moroccan Me a Miracle 7-in-1 Serum through the ends of the hair to add shine while smoothing frizz and protecting against humidity

Korres Luxury Body Butter is from the gods.

This beautifully scented, creamy Body Butter is enriched with natural shea butter and quince extract to soften, moisturize, and rejuvenate the skin. Sunflower, almond, and avocado oils deeply nourish, help improve skin elasticity and smoothness, and provide head-to-toe hydration. Each Body Butter contains a blend of over thirteen unique natural butters, emollients, extracts, and oils known to soften and revitalize dry, tired skin. The three aromatic scents include: Vanilla Guava, a blend of tropical fruits with a warm aroma of vanilla; Jasmine, which bursts with a captivating aroma of newly opened jasmine buds; and Apple Blossom, which features a crisp blend of freshly blossomed apples.

So I’ve tried Vanilla Guava (to DIE FOR), and next on my list is Jasmine! That sounds amazing!

When developing the new HairMax for den•si•ty Collection, the company set out to devise a structure that worked to cleanse, nourish and treat the scalp – providing a healthy base to stimulate new, healthy hair growth.

HairMax for den•si•ty SHAMPOO ($18)

This high performance, sulfate free shampoo cleanses, restores vitality, thickness and volume to hair. The lower pH formula gently exfoliates the scalp and removes the build-up of sebum, styling products and environmental pollutants leaving hair and scalp deeply cleansed and refreshed.

HairMax for den•si•ty REVITALIZER ($23)

This scalp treatment deeply cleanses and exfoliates the scalp dissolving excess sebum, perspiration and environmental pollutants that can clog hair follicles and inhibit hair growth. An invigorating blend of menthol and peppermint oil leaves the scalp feeling refreshed and revitalized.
