Celebrity Hair Tips Revealed

Do Up Your Hair for the Holidays

Ok, I admit it.  I love to splurge from time to time as much as the next girl.  And I have to tell you, my new favorite splurge is going to see celebrity stylist Ryan Crupi at the Andy LeCompte Salon here in West Hollywood, CA.  But since I am Fabulous AND Frugal, there is no way I can go to see Ryan to prep for all of my holiday festivities – so I asked him for D.I.Y. tips on how to do holiday hair at home.  It turns out, that you can recreate the salon experience – with you as your own on call stylist!

Celebrity Style

Ryan is known for doing the hair of celebrities like Kate Walsh, Rachel Bilson and Emanuelle Chriqui. Having long hair myself, I wanted to know how to re-create their natural, sexy beach-y look at home. Here are Ryan’s easy steps.  In just 15 minutes you too can get the look I WISH I had when I roll out of bed!

Ryan’s 15 Minutes To Fabulous Hair

Follow these easy steps and you too can rock tousled waves without spending a ton of dough!

  1. After washing hair towel dry very well – remove as much moisture as possible.
  2. Spray all over with R Y A N C R U P I • O C E A N S P R A Y™
    (this is the only product I use, by the way)
  3. Blow dry with your fingers – keep your fingers running through it constantly.  And yes, this is way more fun when Ryan
    himself is doing it!  But a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do….
      Then flip your hair upside down and keep your fingers running through it.
  4. When dry, take a flat iron or curling iron and smooth it out or add curls, whatever you would normally do.  The key is to NEVER use an iron on wet hair – it will BURN it.  And to keep the iron constantly moving – you don’t want 400 degrees sitting on your hair!
  5. After you use heat, let it cool.  As Ryan explained to me, hair is like metal – use heat to form it and then let it cool to set.  You need to let it cool down before finishing up your look.
  6. After it cools off, comb your fingers through your hair to achieve a more natural look (as he puts it, so you don’t end up looking like Shirley Temple). Loosen your hair with your fingers to achieve a natural, sexy look, and he advises to “pull with tension” – don’t be afraid to get in their and work with your hands.  And … that’s it!  You don’t need to spray again or add anything else to it.
