Elle Macpherson’s Hair Stylist Shares His Number One Hair Tip

We’re listening

Elle Macpherson may forever be known as ‘The Body’, but you bet we’ll take any insider tips on her skin, hair and wellness regimen, too.

The 56-year-old’s long golden hair has always been a mane of beachy perfection, and despite being a natural brunette (it’s true!) her bronde always looks healthy.

But for anyone that’s ever tried to grow their hair long, you’ll know it’s no easy battle. With split ends, damage and thinning to contend with, it can be easy to relent and try out a bob instead.

However, with social distancing still in play, there’s never been a better time to try and reach your long hair goals, and with the advice of Mcpherson’s hairstylist, it just may be possible.

“My number one piece of hair advice would be to start repairing the damage we do to our hair,” says Joey Scandizzo, co-creative director for ELEVEN Australia. “That’s laying off the heat styling tools and washing your hair less.”

Scandizzo, who’s also worked with the likes of Carrie Bickmore and Ruby Rose, also recommends to “treat your hair to a protein-packed shampoo and conditioner with plex properties to pump the hair full of life and repair broken bonds [and to help] repair hair follicles.”

Scandizzo is all for masking too, saying to “treat yourself to at least one hair mask a week – your hair deserves it!”

You heard the man – go forth and mask.
