Model 1:-

Celebrity Reference: - Rachel McAdams
Rachel starred in The Notebook (2004) , Mean Girls (2004), Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Hairstyle:- The Ballerina Bun

Rachel's preferred product: -
Sebastian 'Volupt' blow dry spray, €28, select salons

Sebastian 'Re-Shaper' Hairspray, €19.40, select salons

Rachel is a big fan of Sebastian products- in fact, it was a Sebastian stylist that did her hair for the Oscars this year (photo above!)
Other celeb fans of Sebastian products include Victoria & David Beckham

Model 2:-

Celebrity Reference: - Nicole Richie

Hairstyle - The Messy Plait

Nicole's Preferred product: -

Nicole is a big fan of what she calls the "Brazilian Blow Dry" - this would be similar to the 12 week blow dry that we have here in Ireland. As she has naturally very curly hair, she likes to smooth it for weeks on end with this treatment. To create the messy plait look however, we're using a moulding product to give a more disheveled appearance.

Garnier 'Surf Hair' texturising gum, €5.49, nationwide

Model 3:-

Celebrity Reference:- Jennifer Lopez

Hairstyle- Slicked ponytail

Shay recommends this style for summer as you can leave treatments in your hair for the day while you're on the beach or even shopping in town (without your hair looking greasy & dirty).

JLo's preferred product:- 100ml Moroccan Oil, €38.00
Mason Pearson hairbrush, €75, Hickey's pharmacies
