Effortless, textured waves seem to be your signature on the runway and on your celebrity clients, such as Khloe and Kim Kardashian and Olivia Culpo. What are your tips for creating perfect beachy waves for all hair lengths?

I suggest using the ghd Classic Curl Iron to twist small sections of hair in alternate directions, then spraying with TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray for texture.

What is the most requested red carpet hairstyle and how can we achieve it?

Super sleek, stick-straight strands will never go out of style; they always looks so luxe and beautiful in photos.

I suggest prepping the hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth shampoo and conditioner, then blow drying with a ghd hairdryer, along with TRESemmé Heat Defence Spray.

Make sure the parting is perfectly centred and then take thin, horizontal sections and flat iron from roots to ends with the ghd Platinum Plus Styler, following a smoothing brush, pinning down with no-crease clips after each section.

Once the entire head is straight, run a small amount of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil through the ends.

What one piece of advice do you always share with your celeb clients?

Sleep on a silk pillowcase. It makes the biggest difference in keeping moisture in the hair and preventing frizz and breakage. That way, you can go extra days between washes and just touch up strands with the TRESemmé Instant Refresh dry shampoo range.

What was your favourite red carpet hairstyle last year and who wore it?

I absolutely loved Khloe Kardashian’s half-up long ponytail from 2018’s E! People’s Choice Awards. It was a look we’ve never done before and she looked incredible.

What is the best hair advice you have received?

Don’t be afraid to brush the hair!

What is your favourite TRESemmé hair product and why?

My must-have is the TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray. It is a strong-hold hairspray which still offers flexibility and movement in the hair without any stiff or sticky residue.

Whose is your dream head of hair to work on?

Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lawrence and Blake Lively.
