Among the celebrity hair transformations that made us OMG in 2017, Selena Gomez’s peroxide plunge was the most shocking (Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee got skill). But nothing about the actual hairstyles Sel’s been slaying on the crimson carpets has changed—all the looks her right hand woman and Mane Master Marissa Marino has been serving continue to make us ooh and ah. To get the closest we can possibly get to Sel’s level of lock perfection, we asked Marissa about her top red carpet hair products. From the best comb and gel to create a wet look to an affordable setting hairspray and more, see Marissa’s go-to’s in the gallery below.
I love the Evo Love Touch Shine Spray. I use it as the final touch for an overall reflection on the hair before a client walks out the door.
For Fighting Frizz
Oribe’s Straight Away Smoothing Blowout Cream is the best product I’ve found to help smooth out hair from the time it’s wet. I apply evenly throughout damp hair and blow dry it with a boar bristle brush for added smoothing and shine.
Pantene Airspray Hairspray is genius. It has a great hold while also allowing flexibility in the hair. It will never get hard or tacky.
For Adding Texture
Mannequin Styling Paste from R+Co. I actually just discovered it this year and now I can’t live without it! It’s perfect for adding second day texture or piecing out an updo.
