Exclusive: All Things Hair Goes One-on-One with Chrissy Teigen
All Things Hair: Hi Chrissy! How has life changed since becoming a new mom?
Chrissy Teigen: I want everything to be as Effortless. As. Possible. For me it’s like, you are just happy to get in the shower! (laughs) Oh my gosh—I want everything to be nice and easy and effortless, and honestly, TRESemmé provides that for me, because I really do actually love and really do use their reverse routine line. I really love Beauty-Full Volume—the entire collection, really—and I find that when I do use it, I end up having volume all day, that holds all day and that lasts all day. I don’t find that in other products, really, and for me—I can’t just pop in the bathroom all the time and fix myself—so when I’m running around, as it’s [been] a crazy couple of months for me, it’s nice to be able to know that I have a solid product that’s always gonna take care of me.
All Things Hair: Was this your first time actually doing a reverse-wash?
Chrissy Teigen: Oh, yeah, it never even crossed my mind! It’s so funny: Once everybody saw it they were like oh, I never thought about reversing my routine, ever. It does make sense, because obviously you condition to smoothen, then you wash away all the weight of the shampoo. It got people thinking differently, which is really cool.
All Things Hair: So true! We’d love to know: What’s your go-to hairstyle?
Chrissy Teigen: I love a big, beachy wave, obviously. I like a lot of volume; I just feel [you should do] whatever makes you feel sexy. And I do change it up a lot, but man, I don’t think I ever, ever straighten my hair! But there’s just something about a nice beach wave, or those big-roller, thick waves—you feel very glam and sexy. I love it.
All Things Hair: And how about when you’re relaxing? How do you do your hair in your downtime?
Chrissy Teigen: Oh, it’s wet, and in a top knot, I swear. Which is funny, ’cause on the way here at one show there were a lot of wet looks and I was like oh my gosh, I might have just started a trend! (laughs) And here I thought I was just being lazy!
All Things Hair: What hair product can’t you live without?
Chrissy Teigen: I definitely love the TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray, because to be able to set something and not think about it all day is really great. It doesn’t leave your hair crispy or crunchy at all, and honestly, I have so much of it in; I just did a Snapchat video and it’s just been puff clouds of the spray! I have so much on but you can still run your fingers through it. It’s really nice.
