As part of our series, Hair-apy Sesh, we’re asking the hair industry’s most-trusted mavens to divulge their secrets about what products get lifted from their kit, their idea of the most overrated and underrated hair tricks, plus their favorite high-price-tag and drugstore buys that confidently carry them through their bustling careers.

What’s the most stolen product from your kit?

Suavecito!!! The Firm Hold Pomade is my favorite. It’s the best edge control out right now. Sometimes it’s hard to find, so my clients always ask if they can have it once I’m done with their hair.

What’s the most underrated hair hack or trick?

Murray’s Pomade for a slick ponytail. I’ve been using Murray’s since I was a teenager. I found out early if you want a good pony that will stay in place and keep the baby hair poppin’, Murray’s is the way to go. A small amount will go a long way. I’ve had clients who were shocked, some were even side eyeing me once they saw me whip it out [lol], but after seeing how amaze their hair looked, they all become advocates of the orange can. Murray’s for the win!

What’s the most overrated hair hack or trick?

Donut buns.

What’s one expensive product that’s worth every penny? Why?

BaByliss Pro Titanium Flat Iron. This is by far my favorite flat iron, it leaves the hair shiny and straight without burning it. Also, it leaves the hair smooth and sleek without any frizz. Because we all know frizz is a no-no.

What’s one underrated drugstore product? Why?

L’Oreal EverCurl Shampoo and Conditioner—AMAZING!!! Definitely my drugstore favorite!

If you only had time to use one product on a client, what would it be?

Kenra Volume Spray. It gives the hair volume while still magically maintaining its natural look.
