When it comes to hair styling and fashionable public figures in the entertainment industry, one might assume that their carefully coiffed styles require major investment. According to Tai Simon, Zendaya‘s hairstylist, the star’s recent NAACP red carpet look consisted of products at affordable prices. OGX, an all-inclusive hair product brand, is what Simon used to style Zendaya’s hair.
Simon’s latest Instagram post shared the details of what she used to accomplish the actress’s look. She used OGX Protecting + Silk Blowout Quick Drying Thermal Hair Spray ($7.89), OGX Locking + Coconut Curls Decadent Creamy Mousse ($7.99), and OGX Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum ($11.69).
The hairstylist responded to fan comments asking how she applied the products to get the results she wanted. She shared that she used the moose to make Zendaya’s hair fuller and the serum to protect her hair from heat. There are so many affordable products for all hair types to achieve a luxury look.
