The problem with at home hair styling is that often it's near impossible to know where to even begin. The magnitude of choice in hair products, each promising a slightly different thing can be overwhelming. So we took a look into the Hershesons session kit to find out which products our own stylists swear by.. & here are the tried, tested and approved products you need to try.
1: Bed Head's Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray
FOR BUILDING BODY A secret favourite of Jordan Garrett, hairstylist at Hershesons, Bed Head's 'Queen For A Day Spray' adds instant thickness and body to limp hair. Perfect for those who don't like or have the time to have elaborate routines when getting ready in the morning.. All you have to do is spritz onto wet hair starting from the roots, then blow dry as usual.
2: Ouai's Dry Shampoo Foam
FOR A SECOND DAY HAIR REFRESH This dry shampoo neutralises excess oils to leave hair looking light and refreshed. Pretty standard right? But what makes Ouai's Dry Shampoo Foam a cut above the rest is it's unique foaming texture which cleanses without a drop of water and better yet, never leaves white residue behind.
3: Kiehl's Creme With Silk Groom
FOR PREP AND FINISH A staple in every stylists bag is the cult frizz-defying product, Creme with Silk Groom. It's suitable for all hair types but is particularly good on curly hair, helping to add amazing definition to curls without weighing the hair down. Other wins are enhanced shine, professional finish and the fact that you only need a microscopic amount so a bottle of this will last ages.
4: Sam McKnight's Cool Girl Barely There Texture Mist
FOR TOUSLED TEXTURE If you love 'undone' tousled styles as much as we do, this super light texturising spray is an essential. From the legendary Sam McKnight and the man behind an insane number of supermodel locks, it's safe to say he knows a thing or two about cool-girl waves. A few spritzes of this groundbreaking formula is all you need - Don't be fooled by it's barely-there feel, this stuff will dramatically redefine your hair into that effortless texture you've always dreamed of.
5: Kerastase Styling V.I.P Volume In Powder
FOR MAXED OUT VOLUME This hairspray will give you the strong hold desired plus has the added benefit of being specially formulated to add volume and texture - ideal for a look full of drama! The anti-humidity protection will keep the style looking great even on the second day. Slightly pricier than your usual drugstore hairsprays, but considering the extra body, grip and longevity provided, it's definitely one that's worth the investment.
6: Kerastase Elixir Ultime Serum Solide
FOR DRY HAIR With 15 rejuvenating oils blended into solid form, this serum actively injects moisture back into frizz and damaged ends. Whilst nothing but a pair of scissors can fix split ends, this solid elixir does add an impressive amount of shine and softness to dull locks. Although it is essentially a hair oil, it comes in a solid white form which is very handy in preventing you from the very common (and tempting) mistake of applying too much.
7: Hershesons Clear Snagless Bands
FOR DISCREET STYLING Take your braids and updos to new levels of chic with these handy discreet bands. Made from durable elastic, the clear bands will hold hair in place all day, over and over again. Comes in a travel-sized tin so you'll never lose a hair band again!
