Dascha Polanco at the Premiere Party of ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK in Carmen Marc Valvo

Dascha Polanco is always so much fun to work with, the whole crew at Caravan Stylist Studio totally enjoys it when this fantastic ball of energy comes for a visit. Dascha had her red carpet premiere to attend and we had a blast.

This week was the Netflix original series premiere of “Orange is the New Black” at the New York Botanical Garden. All 13 episodes of the Netflix Original Series “Orange is the New Black” arrive exclusively on Netflix July 11, 2013. From ‘Weeds’ creator Jenji Kohan, OITNB is based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of a year spent in prison. All of us at Caravan have our calendars marked and can’t wait to see Dascha and all the lovely ladies from OITNB take it to the screen.


Caravan worked with Dascha to help her with everything from finding the perfect dress that was custom fitted by Carmen Marc Valvo and her decadent shoes to match. Her jewelry was made just for her to match the amazing dress by Kira Kira.

We also had fun finding the perfect Zoya Nail Polish in the shade of Pandora. Last but never least, we styled Dascha’s hair with a semi inspired pompadour and gathering the remainder of the hair into a deconstructed bun in the back. It was easy to create when you are working with Salon Grafix products. We used Healthy Hair Nutrition Restyler and Salon Grafix Moose prior to running a large curling rod by Babyliss Pro over all the hair. We took the top front section of hair and used a back-combing technique and giving it a few good sprays of Shaping Hair Spray. Once we back-combed the we took the outermost layer of hair and lightly combed it over the teased part to create a clean shape to the elevated top pompadour. With the remainder of the hair it was gathered in the back and pinned random twists of hair to form a deconstructed bun. Once the look was perfect a spray of Freezing Hair Spray was used to set Dascha’s style all night.

Prior to Dascha getting glammed up it was great that we now have DDF in the studio. She was able to experience first hand how fantastic the skin care line really is. Using some Firming Eye Cream and my new favorite product Wrinkle and Pore Minimizer once you put this on your skin feels like silk and you have a lovely natural glow.
