Tilane Jones here, just stopping by from UrbanBeautyCollective.com. I recently sat down and spoke with renowned celebrity hair stylist Tippi Shorter. Along with being a celebrity hair stylist and entrepreneur, Tippi is also a member of our Style Squad crew. As part of the Style Squad, Tippi gives style comments on some of the hottest celebrities in the industry. Here we speak about her beginning and of course, about hair. She even gave us a few great products to get us through the heat of summer. It’s hottt!
Of course, we had to know how this artistic lady got her start in the hair styling industry. “It was so hap hazard! About 16, 17 years ago I was really unsure about what focus I wanted to take in my life.” Some of us have found ourselves in that place before. She goes on to say, “One of my girlfriends discovered she was going to be having a baby and she told me she needed someone to fill in for her.” That was all that needed to be said! Tippi went on to “go through school, get my license and started assisting for an awesome hairstylist in California.” As chance would have it, “it turned out I was pretty good.”
After assisting, Tippi would migrate to New York and style the crops of the likes of Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Keri Hilson and Jennifer Hudson, just to name a few starlets. “Honestly, I’d have to say that each time I work with a client it is a WOW experience.” With the names on her resume, we would definitely agree with her! With all the fabulous hair styles she has created we had to know what products could help our sisters on the East Coast tame their tresses in all the heat and humidity this summer. “Tresemme 24 hour body line is an entire line to help keep body in hair and fight frizz. The hairspray is awesome!” suggested Shorter.
Thanks Tippi! Here are a few more humidity control lines that I found to beat the heat:
Phyto Phytodefrisant: Phytodefrisant is a relaxing balm for all hair types, naturally curly or permed hair. The formula coats and straightens hair without any chemical action. The non-oily formula won’t weaken hair. It also imparts shine as the hair is blown dry to a smooth, straight perfection.
Hair Rules: Hair Rules’ hydrating finishing cream is for our curly hair fans. It is the final step in your care and styling routine. This uniquely non-greasy finishing product keeps textured hair infused with essential moisture to keep curls soft, hydrated and shiny all day long. It’s your all-day frizz-fighter!
Get Gorgeous Hair. Now sometime the weather is so unbearable all we want to do is tie it up in a bun. Well instead of doing that why not try something that is virtually frizz proof. Get Gorgeous Hair! A line created and brought to you by Ms. Shorter. GGH is a line of hair extension that is made of 100% virgin Remi human hair. GGH is shipped directly from one source donors across the world. It isn’t over processed like many store bought hair extensions so the hair keeps its shine and beautiful flow. They even professionally dye the tresses to make it look even more natural.
