Video: Celebrity stylist Kevin Murphy tells us what kind of hair we need NOW

Chanel fall 2010 hair

Time for a bit of a breather from all the makeup talk lately! Let’s shift the focus to hair, because that’s changing, too—at least according to celebrity hairstylist Kevin Murphy. And he knows stuff.

Remember Kevin? Last time he was in town, I raved about many of his awesome hair products, including the best beach hair product EVAH and hair curlers that will make you wonder why you ever bothered with the snaggy velcro kind.

This time, he was here to introduce a few more new prodz to the Canadian market—does the man ever sleep? I’ll get to those in a second, but first! A video.

LOTS and LOTS of valuable info here, ladies. This is me picking Kevin’s brain on:

  • The kind of shape and texture your hair should have now
  • What kind of cut to ask for
  • Why the Olsen twins need a new hairdresser
  • The beauty tools and products to invest in (hint: I’ve now become obsessed with finding a mini-crimping iron)
  • The easiest Day-to-Night hair trick

Here’s the video:

And here are the new products out this month…

Powder Puff ($26), which is a powder that morphs into an invisible paste (kinda similar to the Schwarzkopf powder I’ve been raving about) and gives hair lots of volume:

And Luxury Rinse ($25) is its matching conditioner:

You might want to tell your guy about Night Rider ($22), which is a matte paste for wet or dry hair:

So tell me…

Are you feelin’ these new hair trends?
Ever tried any Kevin Murphy products?
Do you feel as triumphant as I do that Kevin ALSO dissed layers? Hooray!

“He’s not my son!”. That was awesome. Love that matte is the new shine. And Powder Puff sounds wicked! Your video was so fancy!

Yes—the fact that matte is now trendy makes me feel much better about having dull, colour-treated hair!

As for the vid… slowly teaching myself iMovie but WOW, I won’t tell you how many hours I spent editing this one and figuring out how to slice in photos, music, etc. No wonder I get nothing done!

Kevin Murphy is, like, my favourite guy ever. This video (which is great, btw!) totally justifies why I’ve been feeling so BLAH over my long, messy (read: OLSEN-Y–I love how he didn’t remember their names), unbrushed hair and craving a structured, shapely long bob. If Kevin says to do it, I must.

Also, LOVE his hair. It’s a nice hairstylist-y change from his usual no-fuss ‘do.

I know, I loved his quiff! He practices what he preaches!

Loving the thought of a blunt, angular lob on you. DO IT! :-)

You all got it spot on. I have worked with K.M. a few times now over the last few years and let me tell you ( as a hair dresser), hes all that and more. There is something around every bend.

Wow you worked with him? Cool! I think he’s a genius – such a forward thinker, so modern but really understands what women want to look like at the same time.
