A girl’s hair is super important because it frames the face, and can totally make or break your whole look, but as we girls know, it can be so hard to style. There are so many styling tools and products out there, it can get downright overwhelming — but it doesn’t have to be! Guy gave us some tips on how to take care of, style, and protect your precious mane.
When it comes to styling your hair, Guy Tang says to start with your haircut. He says, “If it’s not shaped right, it’s not gonna lay right.” So before you mess around with a bunch of products and tools, focus on what shape you want; highlights and curls are important, but your haircut should be your top priority.
How To Protect Colored Hair — Guy Tang’s Top Tips
If you have the cut you want and you’re looking for some great products, Olaplex is one that Guy Tang absolutely swears by. Kim Kardashian also loves this product. Olaplex is a bond multiplier added to color or lightener to strengthen and rejuvenate your hair. Getting an Olaplex treatment at your salon will help repair and limit damage. Guy Tang describes why he loves this product more than anything else, saying, “we’ve been targeting the protein part of the hair, but we’ve been lacking targeting the skeletal structure, until now. Olaplex is the first
So, if you color your hair often, you should make sure to use Olaplex (you can simply ask your stylist ahead of time to add it in to their coloring process). He also cautions people with bright colored hair (like reds, blues, and purples) against shampooing their hair too often, as that will dull the color much faster… and nobody wants dull locks.
When it comes to hair trends, Guy likes to make up his own. So don’t follow trends, just go with how you feel! This will make your look more unique. As Guy likes to say, “Your hair is the biggest fashion accessory you can’t take off. Make your statement!” Now, go out into the world and make bold, fabulous hair choices, HollywoodLifers!
