As someone whose hair has a life of its own, I've learned to love the unpredictable nature of my wavy strands. One day they'll happily be convinced into corkscrew curls while the next there's no chance of them playing ball. Thankfully, I always have a multitude of hair clips on hand to jazz up a hastily tied ponytail or messy bun on days when my waves need a little fine-tuning. For the A-list, however, it seems like every day is a good hair day. Take Jennifer Aniston, for instance. Famed for her iconic hairstyles, sleek blow-drys and bouncy beach waves, her hair always looks salon-fresh even on days that she's supposedly styled it at home. So what's the celebrity secret?
Admittedly, when it comes to red carpet events and award season, celebrities have access to the best hairstylists in the business. So it's not as if they're struggling at home with a pair of 200-degree hair straighteners like the rest of us might be before a big event. But it turns out, there are a handful of products that even the biggest A-listers keep on hand at home to keep their strands looking the part.
I've done a little beauty detective work to uncover the exact hair products that three of my favourite celebs—Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Victoria Beckham and Meghan Markle—swear by. After all, these ladies are never spotted with a single hair out of place, so I definitely want a spritz of whatever they're using.
Keep scrolling to discover the celebrity-approved hair products that Rosie, Victoria and Meghan all swear by, and then shop them all.
When asked about her hair routine, Rosie has previously revealed that this product was top of her list: "I like to use a Moroccanoil Treatment Light in my hair, which is really beautiful for making it really manageable, really shiny, and healthy," she told InStyle. "I will put a tiny drop of that at the ends of my wet hair. It makes it really easy to style and then I will blow dry my hair."
"Klorane Dry Shampoo is always in my cabinet," Rosie told W. A French pharmacy staple, this shampoo spray is enriched with hydrating oat milk and nourishing vitamins to soap up dirt without leaving behind a powdery residue like other dry shampoos.
"A good hair for me would start with having washed it the night before," Rosie told W. "Right now, I'm using shampoo from Sachajuan, and then I'll blow-dry my hair and flip my head upside down and take a big round brush and blow it out. You can do a very mini version of a hairdressing salon blowout that way."
"There is nothing like a hair flip," Meghan previously told Birchbox. "When my hair is feeling a little weighted, Suanne, my hair artist on set, has me bend forward and she sprays a little Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray or nothing at all, and then has me 'flip back hard' to give my hair a little extra bounce."
Hair and makeup artist Lydia Sellers worked with Meghan on the set of Suits before she made her royal leap to the UK. As well as the texture spray, Sellers told Allure that Meghan swears by the Kerastasé Oléo-Relax range for her signature sleek styles. "The Kerastasé relax treatment helps keep everything smooth," she explained.
"We've stuck to the same sleek look since I've known her," Sellers told Refinery29. "She'll say, 'Just give me a slight bend or a slight wave. Nothing too crazy. Kevin Murphy also has a great smoothing cream I'll use."
When VB took to Instagram Stories to reveal this shampoo-and-conditioner duo she was loving, I was surprised to discover the affordable price tag. "Sulphate free ladies!! With UV filters. New, clean shampoo and conditioner," Beckham captioned her image of Josh Wood's Colour Radiating Shampoo and Conditioner for brunettes.
"I'm better at doing my own makeup than my own hair, which is why half the time it's just scraped up or off my face into a bun," Beckham told Into the Gloss. "For products, I use on my own; I like Oribe's Shampoo and Conditioner because they smell incredible."
Avid viewers of Beckham's Instagram Stories might have spotted this budget can of hair spray in her behind-the-scenes shots. Not only does it keep her strands in place, but it also adds gloss and shine.
