You won’t believe the secret behind Stranger Things star Joe Keery’s hair!

Though a monster is terrorising Hawkins, Joe Keery's (AKA Steve Harrington!) hair is still on-point.  

It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana, are still reeling from the horrors of the demagorgon. And while there’s a new sinister entity for the Stranger Things cast to fear, we need other answers: how does Steve Harrington (AKA Joe Keery) keep his hair looking fly 24/7?

You’d think with all the chaos, monsters, and odd weather around that his mane would mess up, but it just doesn’t! Lucky for us, in a recent episode (no spoilers, we promise) Steve let’s us in on the secret behind his perfect flow hairstyle and you won’t believe it…

So, this is the secret behind Steve’s mysterious hair!

In episode 6, Steve Harrington gives Dustin Henderson some girl advice, informing him that elevating his mane game is the best way to turn heads.

After Steve says this, he reluctantly spill the beans behind his mane routine: “Use [a] shampoo and conditioner, and when your hair’s damp — it’s not wet, okay? When it’s damp, you do four puffs of the Farrah Fawcett spray.” Honestly, who knew monster-proofing hair could be this easy?

So, if you have medium-length hair and are eager to recreate Steve’s famous hairstyle, you’ll first need to wash your hair.

Then, when your strands are damp, apply your favourite styling product, making sure to use your fingers to casually sweep your hair up and back, to get Steve’s quiff shape.

For the ‘Farrah Fawcett’ part of the equation, you’ll need to substitute in a more modern product, like the VO5 Mega Hold Hairspray. This helps provide a 24-hour firm hold with a non-sticky, natural feel, which means you can take on any Stranger Things monster, in style.
