Hey ladies! Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of visiting Ojon’s Treatment Triage Suite, backstage at Milk Studios (where tons of shows are happening). Basically, it was a cute little suite where the wildly restorative, genius-for-healthifying-hair brand was styling editors’ hair between fashion shows. Let me start by saying that I stan for Ojon’s products. Every last one of their damage-reversing treatments is blended with a golden elixir extracted from an obscure Central American tree (natives have been dousing their hair in it for like 500 years…hence, their long, impossibly glossy, slow-mo shampoo commercial manes). 800 nuts off the Ojon tree produces only 3 cups of this stuff. It’s very, very special and rich and decadent.
So in celebration of Fashion Week, where all I’ve seen are textured, braid-y ‘dos, I asked Ojon Lead Stylist Gwynne to hook me up with one of these ‘dos! Really, I wanted my hair to look exactly the opposite of how it always looks: down, straight, kinda limp. First, to give my hair some sheen and life, she massaged a couple drops of Ojon Instant Restorative Hair Serum from mid-shaft (tee-hee) to ends. THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE PRODUCT. Look at how glossy and healthy it made my hair look! Frizz-free, as far as the eye can see.
Starting at the crown, she brushed small sections straight up, spritzed Ojon Volume Advance on each (smelled like cake…omg I was so hungry while this was happening) curled with the curling iron, and created pin curls. After they all cooled, she undid the pin, finger-brushed and then created a loosey-goosey, haphazardly twisted French braid (pinning the ends up randomly), and left out face-framing tendrils. Cuuute. My Met Ball hairstyle for next year! Yep, securing an invite was one of my New Year’s resolutions.
I was obvs waayyy into the touch screen photo booth thingie at the suite. Technology is sexy! Listen, I go to a zillion of these FW beauty suites, but this one was such a treat. I never really try new styles with my hair (I’m so much more of a makeup girl), so my pickle was tickled. Thank you Ojon!
