Who will be the next E! Style Contributor?
After last week's elimination round, things are heating up in the E! Style Contributor contest presented by TRESemmé. In the last round, contestants competed to create the best festival season look. This week, it's competitors Deepica Mutyala and Olivia Rodriguez's turn to create the ultimate business luncheon look.
Both style enthusiasts had just one hour to pull together a power outfit that was professional but stylish. In terms of hair, both contestants consulted with TRESemmé Stylist John D and agreed that a pulled-back style, off the face, would command the most authority.
For Olivia's look, comfort was her top priority. A monochromatic jumpsuit is a simple and classy outfit, so a polished ponytail in the same vein was the perfect addition to complete the look. An easy center-part ponytail is a great choice for any hair length, but for a professional feel, keeping it sleek is the key. To lock down flyaways, finish the entire look with an overall spritz of TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hair Spray. For a slick finish, be sure to spray just the ends of the ponytail with the same hairspray.
For Deepica's look, she was all about mixing feminine and masculine pieces together for a modern city-girl feel. For a hairstyle that jived, she focused on creating soft, touchable volume that gave her ponytail a feminine vibe. To create a pumped-up updo that still has movement, run TRESemmé TRES Two Extra-Firm Control Mousse through dampened hair before blow drying. The trick is to focus the product mostly at the roots, you'll be able to achieve a voluminous base in no time.
