Do you ever stroll down the hair-care aisle, lost in a sea of products, wondering which ones actually deliver? Join the club! We’re all on a quest for that elusive combination of hip and hype in our beauty routines.
Navigating the world of hair products can be daunting, especially when you’re aiming for perfection before a big event. But fear not, because we’ve got the inside scoop straight from the beauty bags of your favorite celebs. Let’s delve into their hair essentials and steal their secrets.
Jenna swears by R+Co’s Velvet Curtain Cotton Touch Texture Balm – a dry-styler that adds soft volume and light hold for that effortlessly chic look. “It’s just a texture bomb!” exclaims Jenna. After she did a wolf cut with lots of layers a year ago, she didn’t have a clue how to style it. This was when her stylist saw her struggle and introduced her to the Velvet Curtain texture balm on a shoot once.
And there was no going back for Jenna. “It smells so good!” Jenna goes on. “And it’s light – I don’t feel like it’s thick or crunchy.” This vegan and cruelty-free product instantly smoothes strands, leaving you with a touchable texture and a modern matte effect.
Vanessa Kirby relies on Virtue Un-Frizz Cream, a leave-in treatment that conditions, smooths, and eliminates frizz. Perfect for all hair types, this cream is powered by patented protein, providing sleek, shiny, and soft results without any harsh chemicals or heavy waxes.
If you’ve ever taken the bleach plunge, you’ll totally get where Vanessa’s coming from – her hair practically sizzled under the peroxide onslaught! “Virtue Un-Frizz Cream tries its best against my frizz,” Vanessa confesses. “I keep it with me just in case it gets completely out of control.”
Priyanka Chopra Jonas trusts the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler to achieve versatile styles. With attachments designed for different hair types and styles, this innovative tool styles and dries simultaneously. Plus, no extreme heat means healthier locks in the long run.
“This was a pandemic buy,” reminisces Priyanka. She hit the jackpot with top-notch stylists keeping her locks on point. But when the pandemic hit, it was a whole new ball game – virtual film premieres, book tours, and launching her own haircare line. With no glam squad in sight, she had to DIY her ‘do, and that’s where the Dyson Airwrap multi-styler swooped in to save the day!
Helen Mirren relies on the legendary L’Oréal Paris Elnett Hairspray – the gold standard for red carpet events. This hairspray delivers an ultra-fine mist, leaving hair clean, weightless, and shiny. With a satin touch, it holds styles all day and disappears with a stroke of the brush.
“This is an oldie but goldie!” claims Helen. “Every hairdresser uses this,” she shares her observation. She’s got this adorable pocket-sized hairspray, making it the perfect travel companion for her jet-setting adventures.
Keira Knightley’s choice is Hershesons Almost Everything Cream – a versatile product that tames, conditions, defines, smooths, primes, adds texture, boosts shine, and acts as a brilliant mask. And with Hershesons’ commitment to sustainability, you can feel good about your beauty routine.
Keira admits she is not very good at styling her hair but swears that this cream does everything it promises on the tin. “You can put it in wet or you can put it in dry and it zhoozhes [your hair],” says Keira. “It gives you a silky bit, it gives you a bit of body, it gives you everything!” she can’t contain her excitement.
