How celebrities keep their hair looking red-carpet ready

Kim Kardashian

With their huge incomes and glam squads on call 24/7 to keep them looking red-carpet ready, it’s no surprise that celebrities are the ultimate #hairgoals.

But there are certain things you can do to keep your hair looking as good as a celebrity.

Here we reveal six celeb secrets to keeping your hair in shape.

Celebrity secret 1: They take their haircare regime seriously - and stick to it

Hollywood stars know looking good is their job so they take their beauty routine extremely seriously. That means regular haircuts and deeply hydrating conditioning treatments.


Secret 2: There are no “off” days

When they’re not working, celebrities still need to look after their image. And that’s why a day off means a day restoring and reviving their hair in a conditioning mask.

This will not only combat the negative effects of constant heat styling but also any chemical damage.

Secret 3: They use heat protectants when styling

Too much straightening, curling and blow-drying plays havoc with hair.

Using an oil or heat spray before styling is the best way to protect the hair.


Secret 4: They take vitamins, because beauty comes from within

Supplements can not only ensure scalp health, they can help hair grow faster and thicker.

Your hair needs vitamin A to stay moisturised and grow (also find it in sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach and kale if you prefer to get your nutrients from food).

Research has also shown that vitamin D could help create new follicles - the tiny pores in the scalp where new hair can grow.

Secret 5: They know how to brush wet hair without damaging it

Be careful what type of brush you use on wet hair, which is at its most fragile.

A wide tooth wooden comb is the most gentle, or even simply run your fingers through your damp hair.


Secret 6: They use wigs and weaves

Whether it’s for a big role, photo shoot or special event, hair pieces are commonplace in the celeb world - and they are a great way to change up a look and have fun with your style.

3 celebrity hair trends you need to try this Spring

Whether it’s the return of the scrunchie (yes, you heard us right!) or messy schoolgirl plaits, Spring is the perfect time to try out the most coveted celebrity hairstyles and hair trends working their way down the runways and onto the streets. Here are our top three trends you won’t want to miss:

Supermodel Bella Hadid sports the scrunchie (or "hair cloud") trend with a side of attitude.

TREND 1: Return of the Scrunchie

The Scrunchie, the hair accessory that almost broke up Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw and her angsty writer beau Berger, is back!

And you can blame the sexy new generation of Supers and singers... Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid love wearing their scrunchies (now known as “hair clouds”) with pride and no sense of irony, whatsoever. 

Once relegated to the bathroom cabinet, this throwback 90s accessory is now taking centre stage. Even designers have been getting in on the action, with Balenciaga selling one for a whopping £145. We prefer to pick ours up from our teenage haunt Claire’s Accessories for the bargain price of just £3.50.

Actress Lily Collins recently swapped her brown hair for this on-trend Dirty Blonde look.

TREND 2: Blondes have more fun

As formerly brunette actress Lily Collins proves, dirty blonde is the new go-to A-list hair colour this Spring.

So forget platinum - this season it’s all about adopting the LA vibes with golden shades and distinctly warmer tones, perfectly achievable (and in half the time) with our new product L’Oreal Instant Highlights.

TREND 3: Schoolgirl plaits

Is anyone feeling a retro theme with hair trends at the moment?! This Spring, give your traditional plaits a messy makeover so they give off that ‘I woke up like this’ vibe.

Keep your plaits loose and a little untidy for that ultra cool look.
