Cookie’s beauty debut was equally as statement-making as her grand entrance as she descended upon the protest grounds in a barred cage. A sleek topknot offered a sophisticated touch to her otherwise over-the-top aesthetic (emerald green shadow, fuchsia lips, blingy nail art, and dare we say—free the nipple?). Add polish to your own updo with a shone serum like Earth’s Nectar Hair Gloss ($19, sephora.com).
She wouldn’t be Cookie Lyon without a waist-length pony. This season, she puts a twist on it with side-swept bangs. Create sleek strands like hers with a smoothing cream like Phytodéfrisant Botanical Straightening Balm ($28, ulta.com)—and a few extensions for added volume and length.
A court appearance prompted Cookie to take a more natural approach, pairing minimal makeup with loose curls. Create defined ringlets of your own with a medium-size curling rod and set with a holding spray. We like Drybar Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray ($26, sephora.com).
Another topknot for Cookie—now, with a roughed-up texture. Starting with a ponytail, spritz dry shampoo on the loose hair and rough-dry with a blow-dryer. Then, wrap the hair around the base of the elastic and secure with pins. Try Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle Oil Control ($20, sephora.com).
