Celebrity hair stylist David Lopez shares all on styling his A-List clients and how you can achieve the look at home!
One of the most iconic hair looks for Chrissy Teigen, a celebrity who is a style and beauty icon for many, is her wavy beach babe locks; we chat to the man behind the brush, David Lopez. He said: “When I was styling Chrissy’s hair, instantly I knew that I wanted to create a clean and classic look. For this I still wanted to incorporate a free flowing texture,” explains David. “To recreate the S bends in the hair I use T3 Micro’s Single Pass Luxe Styling iron and then brush out. For the finishing touches use a hair colour brush and “paint” on SheaMoisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Style Milk.” David also gives advice on how to give support for finer locks, “Chrissy’s fine hair needs lots of support for texture. For the texture I sprayed in a healthy dose of Oribe’s Beach Texture Spray after curling. This product gives shine, hold and texture all at once.”
David has also worked on supermodel Hannah Davis' hair and tells us how we can get her look; “SheaMoisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Styling Lotion gave Hannah’s hair all day protection from frizz without weighing it down. Using this meant that the waves stayed bouncy all day and also gave long term healthier hair.”
To achieve a 90’s inspired blowout, which David created on celebrity Hailey Baldwin, he said: “By using SheaMoisture’s Fruit Fusion Texture spray gave Hailey’s hair lots of modernised texture.” This weightless texture spray is enriched with Imbe Oil which helps to block humidity and control frizz too, so your blow dry can stay under control for longer.
Thicker hair needs a lot of protection, David tells us: “When I was styling Lily Aldrige’s hair I used SheaMoisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-in Conditioner. This product provides celebrity shine; protection and manageability which left Lily’s blow dry soft and shiny all day.” To keep braids in place, David shares his best tips; “When I styled Hailey’s hair into braid, I used Kenra Professional’s Ultra Freeze Gel. This product kept Hailey’s braids neat, shiny and controlled all day.”
David explains: “Long hair looks best when it looks healthy. After smoothing Ashley Graham’s hair straight with T3’s Single Pass Luxe Flat Iron, I applied SheaMoisture’s Raw Shea & Cupuacu Frizz Defence Styling Cream on ends for all night shine and protection.”
