The most modern celebrity hair cuts and colours
Celebrity hairstylists Jen Atkin, Harry Josh and Roger Medina weigh in on the celebrities with the best hair in the world right now.
Who: Mica Argañaraz & Olivia Wilde
According to the pro: Harry Josh, international creative consultant for John Frieda.
The style: “Model Mica Argañaraz has these amazing bangs and rock ’n’ roll layers with wavy hair. Every girl wants that, and every model and casting director is obsessed with it. As for colour, I’m getting a lot of requests from people who want a bold change, like Olivia Wilde’s platinum blond.”
Pro tip: To keep curls buoyant (runway or not), Josh suggests John Frieda Luxurious Volume Core Restore Protein-Infused Clear Conditioner.

Who: Chanel Iman
According to the pro: Roger Medina, hair expert for Garnier Canada
The style: “Chanel Iman rocked such an interesting hairstyle at Coachella. Her bright, colourful braids are almost like dreads. This look is perfect for someone who doesn’t want to worry about styling their hair every day. It’s not for everyone—make sure your hair can handle braids. It’s ideal for medium to thick hair; if your hair is fine, it could cause breakage. Consult with your stylist before getting braided extensions, and be prepared for a four- to six-hour appointment.”
Pro tip: Medina recommends Garnier Whole Blends Marvelous Oil Moroccan Argan and Camellia Oil, which keeps scalp and hair hydrated.

Who: Kendall Jenner & Chrissy Teigen
According to the pro: Jen Atkin, celebrity hairstylist and founder of OUAI Haircare
The style: Short is here to stay. I’m all about a really straight A-line at the bottom, so it’s still thick and healthy. It’s quite versatile because you can flip the part to either side or part it down the middle. Before Fashion Week, I cut Kendall Jenner’s hair into a cool ’90s lob, and I cut Chrissy Teigen’s hair into this really cute short cut for the Grammys that had minimal layers and a lot of texture throughout the bottom. The key is in layering right for your hair type and face shape.”
