Stylist Picks

"The one thing I cannot live without is my ghd platinum styler. It's super lightweight, and the beveled edges make it the perfect hot tool to create sleek looks, waves and curls. I can honestly do anything with my flat iron and would cry if it went missing from my arsenal."

Justine Marjan, celebrity hairstylist

"Elnett hair spray is and has always been a staple in my kit—I couldn't do my job without it. I love that it provides great hold while leaving hair soft and weightless. It's the ultimate sealer and creates a beautiful shine."

Mara Roszak, celebrity hairstylist

"My secret weapon for my long straight hair is Garnier Fructis Frizz Guard Anti-Frizz Dry Spray. I love how it leaves hair frizz-free without taking away from the volume. I keep it on me at all times to control flyaways and to style all the looks for my clients. Definitely one of my favorite and must-have products!”

Millie Morales, celebrity hairstylist and Garnier brand ambassador

"I'm obsessed with Dove's new Unscented Dry Shampoo. It's perfect for those sensitive to fragrances and my go-to solution for giving hair a quick refresh in between washes. I never leave home without it!"

Mark Townsend, celebrity hairstylist

"I've said it once, I'll say it a million times: I can't live without Magic Move pomade. I keep at least three in my kit at all times. It gives hair the perfect amount of thickness and texture, and it's invisible. It works on all hair types. Obsessed."

Joey Maalouf, celebrity hairstylist and co-founder of The Glam App

"My go-to is Trophy Shine + Texture Spray because you can use it on both wet or dry hair and it gives manageability and control. It can also be applied as a light hair spray to lend texture while locking in your style with hair memory."

Garren, celebrity hairstylist and R+Co co-founder

"My must-have hair product is the Ouai Wave Spray—it is essential. Most sea salt sprays are drying because the salt dries out your strands. That is not the case with Ouai Wave Spray, which actually uses rice protein to create texture in the hair instead of salt. Your strands will love it."

Jen Atkin, celebrity hairstylist and creator of Ouai Haircare

"My must-have hair product is Expensive Amla Oil Hi-Shine Topcoat. It’s an in-shower protective gloss treatment that's great for color-treated or dry hair because it weightlessly seals and protects the cuticle, enhances color, adds shine and makes hair softer. I like to use it one or two times per week in place of conditioner, but it's also great as a dry styler. It gives hair a cool wet look and can be used root to tip or just on the ends for definition."

Chase Kusero, co-founder of IGK Hair Care

"I never go anywhere without at least two of my dryers in my kit. My new version is even easier to travel with because it's so light (under a pound!). There's an on and off Ion switch, which makes the dryer ideal for all hair types—fine to frizzy—and the dryer comes with two nozzles and multiple heat settings so I can truly customize the blowout for what each client needs."

Harry Josh, celebrity hairstylist

"The one product that I absolutely cannot live without, and that will never leave my kit, is Garnier Fructis Frizz Guard Anti-Frizz Dry Spray. It eliminates frizz all day long, giving myself and my clients peace of mind. The hair stays soft without any product build up. It truly is a dream."

Michael Duenas, celebrity hairstylist and Garnier brand ambassador
