Celebrity hair stylists share their #1 rules

When it comes to haircare advice, there are few people more trustworthy than a celebrity stylist. Responsible for creating the most enviable A-list looks, they have picked up some tips and tricks for keeping hair healthy and looking great. 

Below, four of the most in-demand celebrity hair stylists share their number one rules. Their clients may range from pop princesses to fashion icons, but there’s one thing they can all agree on: make sure to deep condition.

Dalina Rebollo - works with Ariana Grande

“My number one piece of hair care advice is to give your hair a break. Color wise! Also, treat it with a great detangler. Everyone’s hair is probably more against a pillow than ever before during this quarantine (tangles)... so a spritz of KEVIN.MURPHY UN.TANGLED after a shower will make strands manageable without fighting with your hair brush!"

BD also recommends: Daily Naturals Detangler Spray; Original & Mineral Know Knott Detangler; Kérastase Paris Fondant Extensioniste; and LUSH Sunny Day Anti-Static Hair Detangler.

Joey Scandizzo, ELEVEN Australia co-creative director - works with Anna Wintour, Rozalia Russian, and Elle McPherson

“My #1 piece of hair care advice would be to start repairing the damage we do to our hair. That’s laying off the heat styling tools and washing your hair less. Treat your hair to a protein packed shampoo and conditioner with plex properties to pump the hair full of life and repair broken bonds, like the ELEVEN Australia Repair My Hair Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner which will repair hair follicles, protect against heat and add 32% more volume. Treat yourself to at least one hair mask a week – your hair deserves it!”

BD also recommends: A’kin Miracle Shine Conditioning Hair Mask, Garnier Fructis Wonder Mask + Coconut Oil Hair Mask; L’Oreal Paris EverStrong Strengthening and Repairing Hair Mask; and Sukin Naturals Hydrating Replenishing Hair Masque

Korey Fitzpatrick - works with Billie Eilish, Finneas, and Tove Lo

“Use heat and colour in moderation. This doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun, but people who reduce those two easy things always notice stronger, shinier hair. Before styling with heat, always use a heat protector product, like KEVIN. MURPHY HEATED.DEFENSE."

BD also recommends: Aveda Heat Relief™ Thermal Protector & Conditioning Mist; Sebastian Professional Trilliant Heat Protector; Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Detangling Heat Spray; and John Frieda® Detox & Repair Protect Spray.

Rachel Vitullo, ELEVEN Australia educator and co-owner at Joey Scandizzo salons - works with Steph Claire Smith

“Invest in the correct tools, like blow dryers, good brushes like our new ELEVEN Australia Styling Brush. The correct tools are going to assist you in achieving your final look, so investing in the proper ones is going to be a huge help."

BD also recommends: Mason Pearson Comb Detangling; WetBrush Stellar Skies Original Detangler; Scunci Hair Accessories Brush Paddle Argan & Keratin; TONI&GUY Bamboo Paddle Brush; and JUSTICE Professional Easy Wave Styling Brush.
