Chrissy Teigan is a style and beauty icon for many, with one of her most iconic hair looks been her wavy beach-babe locks, we chat to the man behind the brush, David Lopez. He goes on to say: “When I was styling Chrissy’s hair, instantly I knew that I wanted to create a clean and classic look. For this, I still wanted to incorporate a free flowing texture”, explains David.
“To re-create the S bends in the hair, I use T3 Micro’s Single Pass Luxe Styling iron and then brush out. For the finishing touches, use a hair colour brush and ‘paint’ on SheaMoisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Style Milk” David also goes on to give us advice on how to give support for finer locks, “Chrissy’s fine hair needs lot’s of support for texture. To do this, I spray in a healthy dose of Oribe’s Beach Texture Spray after curling. This product gives shine, hold and texture all at once.” Perfect, right?

David has also worked on supermodel, Hannah Davis‘ hair and tells us how we too can get her look; “SheaMoisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Styling Lotion gave Hannah’s hair all day protection from frizz without weighing it down. Using this meant for long lasting bouncy waves and long-term healthy hair.“
To achieve a 90’s inspired blowout, which David created on Hailey Baldwin, he said: “By using SheaMoisture’s Fruit Fusion Texture Spray, it gave Hailey’s hair lot’s of modernised texture” This weightless texture spray is enriched with Imbe Oil which helps to blog humidity and control frizz, too, so your blog dry can stay under control for longer.
Thicker hair needs a lot of protection, David tells us: “When I was styling Lily Aldrige’s hair, I used SheaMoisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-in Conditioner. This product provides high shine; protection and manageability which left Lily’s blow dry soft and shiny, all day“
For brides that seek braids, David shares his best tips to keep them in place; “When I styled Hailey’s hair into a braid, I used, Kendra Professional’s Ultra Freeze Gel. This product helped to keep the braids neat, sleek, shiny and controlled all day long” – er, wedding perfect or what?
David explains: “Long hair looks best when it’s healthy. After smoothing Ashley Graham‘s hair straight with T3’s Single Pass Luxe Flat Iron, I applied SheaMoisture’s Raw Shea and Cupuacu Frizz Defence Styling Cream on ends for all night shine, shimmer and protection.“
