Keeping your hair sun (and pool) safe has never been easier.
Twenty-eight-year-old Mara Klein, a black-clad, Manolo Blahnik-wearing fashion publicist in New York, never leaves home without three things: her cell phone, Cherry Lip Stain from Chanel, and Phyto Plage Sun Protection Oil for her hair. “I spend a fortune on highlights,” says Klein.
“I’m not about to let the sun ruin them—especially when I’m at an all-day, outdoor photo shoot.”
“The sun is brutal,”agrees Zoë, a top colorist at Privé—the downtown SoHo salon where Gwyneth Paltrow, Elizabeth Shue, and Shannon Dougherty are regulars. “It dries hair out and is any hair color’s worst enemy—even hair that’s never been color-treated.” Zoë likes combination products like Rene Furterer Okara Protective Mousse. She says-
“It’s a styling aid and sunscreen in one, doesn’t get much easier than that.”
Joel Warren, co-owner of the bustling, Midtown Manhattan Warren-Tricomi Salon packed with celebrities like Hilary Swank and Natalie Portman, won’t set foot on a beach without first using Redken Sun Shape Shmpoo. “It has a great sunscreen in it,” he says.
“Without it, hair turns brassy—blonde becomes a yellowy-gold and browns take on a reddish hue.”
Everyone from Cameron Diaz to Neve Campbell and Leelee Sobieski trust their color to L.A.-based stylist Cheryl Marks, who swears by Pantene Daily Strengthening Complex.
“It’s amazing—it blocks UV rays and keeps your hair conditioned so it’s less prone to split ends and breakage.”
But all the sunscreens in the world can’t completely protect your hair. If you really love your color, says Privé’s Zoë, “Wear a hat.”
