Debra Messing’s head-turning look was one of the most beautiful seen at the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Complimenting her dramatic red Michael Kors gown, star stylist Robert Vetica created a truly inspired low, asymmetrical ponytail shaped into a free-flowing cluster of curls that resembled an elegant chignon.
“It was all about style complemented by sensuous movement and healthy, natural-looking ease,” said Vetica. “A smooth, shiny texture was the essence of the look.”
The technique was as brilliant as the look, and was achieved without any curling or flat irons, using only Moroccanoil Treatment, Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray, a blowdryer and a round brush.
To ensure smooth, natural-looking and weightless shine, Vetica first generously applied argan-oil infused, original Moroccanoil Treatment to Messing’s coarse textured, curly wet hair. “Her hair loves the ultra-light richness of Moroccanoil Treatment and it absorbs in instantly without any residue. There’s nothing else like it for this kind of shine,” said Vetica.
Next, he blow dried sections of hair with a 1 1/2-inch round tourmaline brush and clipped each section in place to cool and set, and to help retain its movement and wave.
The style itself was easy to create. “I first made a low side part, gently brushed hair back and pulled it behind Debra’s right ear and held it in place with a few bobby pins and a elastic hair band.” Vetica then pulled the right side forward, letting it drop over her right eye. “My homage to Veronica Lake,” he noted. Finally the relaxed ponytail (on the right side), was fluffed to perfection, and he added a spritz of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray followed by light spritz of hair spray.
“The thoughtful preparation of the hair allowed the relaxed ease and hold of the style, and the use of Moroccanoil Treatment and Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray and the heat of the blowdryer insured brilliant shine and great condition.”
