7 Pros Share the Product They Swear by For Red Carpet Glam


A gleaming gown garners a glance on the red carpet, but show-stopping strands guarantee steady gazes, on and off the carpet. We expect said tradition of tresses to carry into this year’s Oscars on Sunday, thanks to these celebrity approved red carpet hair products that are definitely working overtime this weekend. Before the big night, we had to know: What makes a hairstyle so stellar at a star-studded show? Ahead, seven celebrity approved red carpet hair products that will help you achieve an award-worthy mane.

Aussie Instant Freeze Hairspray

1. THE PRO: LAURA POLKO @laurapolko

THE PRODUCT: Aussie Instant Freeze Hairspray and Scunci Cuff Ponytailer

THE PERKS: “It has a finishing hold that really will lock in the look throughout whole night, from carpet to party. Another important detail that I stock my kit up with are hair accessories like Scunci’s pony cuffs that could be the extra accent to finish off a look and set it apart.”

Dry Oil Finishing Spray by Serge Normant

2. THE PRO: HARRY JOSH @harryjoshhair

THE PRODUCT:  Serge Normant Dry Finishing Oil

THE PERKS: “I love it for maximum shine because it’s truly weightless and non-greasy.”

Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky Dandruff Shampoo

3. THE PRO: SUNNIE BROOK @sunniebrook

THE PRODUCT: Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky and Beauty Works Invisi-Tape Hair

THE PERKS: “I encourage my clients to wash their hair with this before a red carpet because it provides 24 hours of frizz free hair, creates the perfect canvas for any look I want to create by freeing the hair and scalp of product buildup, and keeps the scalp healthy and dandruff-free (essential for those sleek looks and braids).

Also, Beauty Works Invisi-Tape Hair gives me an endless amount of creative possibilities. Adding in pieces helps make a hairstyle last longer and look its best on the red carpet from any and every angle.”

Honest Beauty Honestly Uplifted Volumizing Spray by Jessica Alba

4. THE PRO: JENNIFER YEPEZ @jennifer_yepez

THE PRODUCT: Honest Beauty Volumizing Spray

THE PERKS: “It holds any style you want to achieve with amazing volume that won’t go flat.”

Instant Lift Thickening Spray by Kristin Ess

5. THE PRO: RYAN RICHMAN @ryanrichman

THE PRODUCT: Kristin Ess Instant Lift Thickening Spray

THE PERKS: “It’s a great product to add volume throughout a style without weighing the hair down. For red carpet down ‘dos I spray it generously on towel-dried hair before blow drying and then style the hair with a curling iron. Every wave or curl holds perfectly in place all night long while adding volume and bounce to your overall style.”

Oribe Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray Oribe

6. THE PRO: MARISSA MARINO @_marissamarino

THE PRODUCT: Oribe Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray

THE PERKS: “It’s amazing as a setting spray before I curl a client. I can send my girls off with confidence that their style will hold all night long.”

Leonor Greyl Paris Eclat Naturel Styling Cream

7. THE PRO: BOBBY ELIOT @bobbyeliot

THE PRODUCT: Leonor Greyl Éclat Naturel Styling Cream

THE PERKS: “This is a staple in my kit! It’s great for that perfect smooth shiny finish on an old Hollywood glamour look to a perfect undone texturizer! Not only is it a great styling product, it also doubles as a leave-in treatment. Jojoba oil and Shea butter nourish the hair! And the scent is to die for!”
