Kristin Cavallari has always been the ultimate California cool girl, and she’s got gorgeous sun-kissed locks to prove it. So if you are in need of #hairinpo, Cavallari should be on the top of your list—or at the very least, a regular in your Pinterest searches. In the past, I’ve gotten so many requests for a tutorial on how to perfect effortless beachy waves. So, when I got the chance to team up with the pro of flawless hair, Kristin Cavallari, I was beyond excited to find out the routine for her signature waves.
Kristin started off by suggesting leaving a day or two in between washes in order to not over-wash your hair. Her plan for those few days between shampoos? Use a dry shampoo in the morning to keep hair fresh! Her favorite is Klorane Dry Shampoo, which she counts as one of her must have beauty products. Although, when she does wash her hair, Kristin swears by this Shampoo and Conditioner. She’ll use those intermittently with this celebrity favorite Shampoo and Conditioner to mix up her shower routine from time to time. Kristin explained, “It’s purple, to help brighten blondes!”
If you’re looking for Hollywood’s secret weapon to having “celebrity style” hair, it turns out its more than just what products you put in your hair – it comes down to the water itself! The Raindrops filtration system (from the famously beloved Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood) is essential when wanting to preserve salon color and shine.
For styling her hair, Kristin creates relaxed waves with a GHD 1-inch barrel curling iron. She told me, “I curl my hair in both directions (except very top layer, I do that away from my face). This gives it a more natural look and avoids having the curls all come together.” The more natural and tousled your curls end up, the closer you’ll get to those sand and sun treated locks!
