How to get Olivia’s laid-black gloss

I can’t decide what it is I like most about Olivia Palermo’s look in this picture: the glossy, cherry red nails or the sexy, nonchalant ponytail…


While the simple-hued, punchy nail colour adds vibrancy to a plain black tee and denim shorts and makes this ‘I’m just grabbing a bite to eat’ look seem so polished, the hair is also a mini master class in fresh and easy, but the smooth, worked-on locks keep the style glossy.

DIY with a little texture spray (try Fabricate 03, £11.50, by Redken), through the lengths of your hair before blow-drying. It’ll add the fullness and separation you need to make this style look prettily groomed. For nails, choose Nail lacquer in Monsooner or Later, £9.95, both by OPI for pretty close match. Or try Enthusiast, £16, by Chanel, it’s a red with edge.

Just add shades.
