Shhh! Style Secrets of Amy Poehler + Rashida Jones’ ‘Parks and Recreation’ Hair
Celeb hairstylist Terrie V. Owen dishes on how she creates Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones’ office looks on ‘Parks and Recreation!’
Looking to change up your hairstyle for the office? Celeb stylist Terrie V. Owen can help! With a resume that includes Mad Men, Suburgatory, and Iron Man 2, Terrie knows where it’s at when it comes to chic, office-friendly looks. As Parks and Recreation’s on-set stylist, she currently spends her time getting stars Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones camera ready and fabulous. Coveting Amy and Rashida’s gorgeous waves? Here’s how to get them!
For Amy (seen above), Terrie starts with deep conditioned hair. “I put a lot of stress and heat on the hair daily,” Terrie says, “so deep conditioning is essential.” Pro tip! Next, she preps Amy’s hair with a styling spray: “I use White Sands Liquid Texture Thermal Styling Spray Soft Hold when I need the waves and curls to stand up to long shooting days on the set.” Next, it’s curling iron time. Notes Terrie, “I use a large barrel marcel curling iron to make soft waves, just by wrapping the hair around each section and spraying with more White Sands Liquid Texture.” For the finishing touch, she uses just a light mist of finishing spray so that Amy’s waves stay in place, but still have movement.
For Rashida (seen here), Terrie preps with a heat protectant—“a must for color treated hair,” the stylist notes. Next, Terrie hits up Rashida’s hair with a 1 and three-quarter inch ceramic curling iron. Before she sets each section, though, she sprays on Rashida’s dry hair the same White Sands Liquid Texture Thermal Styling Spray she uses on Amy. “White Sand makes the waves last all day!” she gushes. Finally, she styles the look with Rahua’s finishing cream.
