Ever wondered what an Editorial Stylist’s go-to products are?
When it comes to photoshoot’s hair stylists are often running on tight time schedules, changing looks repeatedly or shooting from AM to PM in all kinds of weather – so it’s always important to be using the best of the best product-wise to ensure a smooth finish! The products must be versatile, consistent, easy to use and have the ability to transform a look in minutes.
We sat down with Senior Stylist Taylor Redman from our Surry Hills Salon to find out what his go-to top 5 items are that he packs in his editorial styling kit when it comes to working on photoshoots, editorials, campaigns and celebrity clients.
YS PARK DIFFUSER
This is perfect for creating natural curls and natural texture effortlessly.
GHD TONG WITH CLIP
Super quick to heat up and great for smoothing down the cuticle! This is my go-to styling tool to use.
ORIBE APRES BEACH WAVE AND SHINE SPRAY
I love creating a lived-in textured look with this Oribe Spray. It’s one of my favourite item’s in my styling kit as it helps me produce beautiful tousled waves without the salty stiffness.
KEVIN MURPHY MOTION LOTION
The Motion Lotion is great for texture and is super light. This product is all about enhancing and controlling the hair with minimal weight thanks to it’s quick absorbing skills which is important when it comes to all-day or early morning photoshoots.
ORIBE SUPER SHINE
This cream comes in both a light and normal formula but I like to have both in my kit, depending on my preferred finish. It’s great for smoothing and controlling ends as it absorbs easily into the hair! I’d say it is a definite on-set favourite.
Calming frizz, elevating shine and restoring hair to supernatural softness are also a few more perks of this product.
