Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Blake Lively: they've all got pretty great hair. Often, that's thanks to hairstylist Oribe-so we hit him up to learn the secrets behind the styling. "I think hair looks best when you embrace what you've got and work with your natural texture," he told us. With that in mind, here's his hair wisdom:
Short Hair: "It's important to find a style that has versatility and isn't too masculine. I like softer, short hair that still looks glamorous and feminine, like Scarlett Johansson in the D&G ads," he says. To style it: He suggests separating and defining the layers with a dry pomade like Oribe Rough Luxury.
Long Hair: This hair, which he defines as anywhere between 3 to 4 inches past the shoulders, looks best with layers that start at your chin. To style it: Try a volumizing product to add lift, and blow your hair out so it's sleek and shiny. Then the next day, try hot rollers for tousled waves.4 Easy Hair Ideas to Steal from Jennifer Aniston
Curly Hair: "If you're going to go short, be bold- curly hair can be extraordinary, very Ava Gardner," says Oribe. Otherwise, curly hair should have some weight so it doesn't go too round. To style it: Enhance your curls with hot rollers for a larger, loose curl. For a '40s look, start with hot rollers, brush curls out, and finish with a moisturizing cream for shine.
Straight Hair: "When it's all one length, thick hair can have beautiful movement, but for fine, straight hair, I recommend adding a few layers to enhance texture and volume," Oribe says. To style it: Try using Oribe Royal Blowout for a sleek look that isn't dehydrated and damaged.
