We all know the ins and outs of wardrobe staples — a plain white tee, dark denim, and a timeless LBD come to mind — so why not learn the rules when it comes to beauty? We wanted to find out the must-have products that our favorite fashion insiders never leave home without: the go-to goodies that instantly put a pep in our most stylish friends’ steps. This week, Sally Hershberger Downtown stylist Ruben Colon says what hairspray is always in his kit. Hint: it’s not the brand you’d think.
“L’Oréal Elnet Hairspray. It’s my favorite, favorite, favorite. I’ve been using it since 1988. That’s one of my favorite all-time products that I use [on clients]. It doesn’t matter what product [line] I’m working with, that’s always in my kit. Whenever I do a photoshoot or video, or any type of job, even if they want you to use their product, what I do is I hide the label with tape. That’s the one product I love.”
“On myself I use 24K Texturizing Paste [by Sally Hershberger]. I have short hair and it’s fine, and it’s receding. Anyway, it’s a great men’s product.”
“Skin is a whole different game. I’m a skin product freak. I use RéVive Skincare products by Dr. Brown. Those are my favorite products, really amazing. It’s very pricey. If I want to run to the store, if I run out of something, Olay Regenerist is also my second choice. It’s a reasonably priced, classic moisturizer.”
