People sometimes don’t know how to take care of their hair effectively and face with much trouble. Therefore, four leading hair geniuses will share their tips on creating different hairstyles and colors without damaging it.
Dennis Gots: The Magician
Stylist Dennis Gots, who is preferred by ELLE’s fashion team thanks to his ability of transforming a model’s style in each shot, is keen on mimicking natural texture to keep hair looking real and strong. He suggests that a blast of Pssssst Dry Shampoo be affordable and give lots of volume, especially for people with fine hair. His secret weapon is “Bumble and bumble Prep” that helps create hairstyles.
He said that styling was always superior
His kit includes a Mason Pearson brush, L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray, Kérastase Elixir Ultime and Redken Outshine Anti-Frizz Polishing Milk
Sam McKnight: Curl Power
Any stylist can use a flatiron to produce straight hair but only few of them including Stylist Sam McKnight can create gorgeous curls that are admired by fashion-world perfectionists such as Karl Lagerfeld. The Pantene’s global ambassador advised that “Comb a conditioning mask through hair, then braid and tie it up in a knot. Let the treatment penetrate all day, then rinse it out for silk-like softness.”
In order to keep pretty and polished curls in a flash, McKnight blow-dry hair with a round brush, then use a two-inch iron to create loose waves, clipping each up until the hair cools
His kit includes Pantene Curly Hair Heat Protection & Shine Spray, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle, Fekkai Full Blown Volume and Sebastian Professional Shaper Hairspray

Josh Wood, Wella Professional’s global creative director for color, always produces intense, saturated and high-impact shades. He often advises his clients such as Kylie Minogue and January Jones to go to salon every few weeks for hair care and hair color fresh.
