Tips and Hairstyle Secrets

We’re backstage at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. We’ve asked all our expert stylists for their best hairstyle secret. You can find a new tip here every day!

Antonio Corral Calero

“You need to have the right balance between your shampoo, conditioner and your styling products. Too much can saturate the hair and too little can create an imbalance.”

Samantha Kenyon

“Step up your moisture level – especially if your hair is long. Hydrate from the ears down to the mid-lengths and ends to keep your hair really healthy.”

Angelo Fraccica

“It’s really important when getting your hair styled day after day like at Eurovision that you properly wash your hair with the right shampoo to remove any product build-up. But make sure you really add the moisture back in too!”

Mariska Schutten

“If your hair really needs a pick-me-up, use the Mending Infusion because it will give you that fresh cut feeling and seal the ends while giving your hair that overall polished look.”
