Disney Princess Hair Can Totally Be Yours
No, it's not a magic bean situation: the stylists behind Kim, Gisele and Angelina fill us in.
As we've established, the choppy, non-mom-like crop is de rigeur. Cool, right up there with cucumbers and Nike slides.
But like all good things, sooner or later, the pendulum will be swinging in precisely the other direction: the direction of long, satin-y Disney Princess hair. 100 strokes with a Mason Pearson brush every night hair. Not the Kate Middleton variety, but the kind you can rationally imagine as having an integral role in a fairy tale, chirping cartoon birds at your side to braid it every morning. For all of the satisfying immediacy of taking a pair of glinting, super sharp scissors to your ends, the allure of long hair is in part due to it's unattainability—it's all in the longing, y'know?
But it doesn't have to be that way. Or at the least, the very literal growing pains can be eased with the help of supplements (that, and less-intriguing, more common sense fixes like regular trims and healthy fats in your diet). Here, the stylists behind everyone from Kim Kardashian to Gisele Bündchen (#hairgoals) divulge their go-tos.
"Now get growing!"
Clients: Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway, Lupita Nyong'o
"One of the most common complaints I receive from my clients is that they wish their hair would GROW! Whether it’s too thin, balding in places or just not growing fast enough, hair growth issues are extremely common.
To help combat these issues, I always recommend that my clients use serums directly to the scalp as opposed to ingested supplements. I like the idea of fighting the problem right at the source. Companies such as Phyto and Keranique have great serums that promote hair growth. You can even find great products in your drugstore. Look out for ones with with grape seed oil—it really helps to stimulate new and healthy hair growth. Now get growing!”
Clients: Kim Kardashian, Sofia Vergara, Katy Perry; Founder, Mane Addicts
"There are a few supplements that I swear by…
1. Biosil, which contains collagen, keratin, and elastic, creating thicker hair strands that grown in stronger and faster (added bonus: it’s a great anti-ager for the skin!).
2. Viviscal, which is great for anyone who has thinning, weak, or a bad haircut they want to grow out fast. I recommend this a lot on set to people whose hair has been damaged from over-styling.
3. Hairfinity, which contains hair healthy biotin, MSM, and tons of other vitamins and essential amino acids. I have seen first hand how effectively Hairfinity can cause new hair growth on several of my clients.”
Clients: Gisele Bündchen, Miranda Kerr, Anna Kendrick
