After her role in White Lotus, Emmy nominee Simona Tabasco inspired women everywhere to commit to a chop with an Italian bob. Last night, now with a longer length, she channeled Veronica Lake with the help of celebrity stylist Peter Lux (@peterluxhair) at the 2024 Emmy Awards. According to Peter, the inspiration for the “Siren” look came directly from Simona: “She was picturing an old Hollywood kind of look with a modern twist to it,” he says. “The look felt so right for the dress she was wearing.”


Donning a colorful Marni gown, Simona radiated romance with the glamorous, but timeless look from Peter on the gold carpet. He added: “I feel like this look is never out of fashion, but it’s important to keep it modern and young by keeping the waves longer and retaining movement in the hair.” Press play to see Peter’s process and get the step-by-step below!

Products Used



First, Peter washed and conditioned Simona’s hair with OLAPLEX No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and OLAPLEX No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner.

Next, he applied a generous amount of OLAPLEX Volumizing Blow Dry Mist on the roots, followed by five drops of OLAPLEX No. 7 Bonding Oil through the ends and mid-lengths. “I love using the Bonding Oil on wet hair before blow-drying as it provides the hair with nourishment and the shine it leaves on the hair is unmatched. My favorite product to start off any look,” Peter says.


Finish the blow-dry prep by applying one pump of OLAPLEX No. 9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum for added heat protection.

Then, Peter blow-dried the hair over a natural bristle round brush to seal in the product for maximum shine.

Peter followed the blow-dry with a medium-sized curling iron and curled the hair in a forward motion, clipping each section to set. “Once all the hair has been curled I leave it cool for five minutes,” says Peter.


After removing the clips, Peter applies a couple of drops of the No. 7 Bonding Oil through the hair.

For the final step, Peter brushed her hair thoroughly to blend the sections together for a ‘closed’ finish with a mirror shine, and then used hairspray to hold the style in place.
