Bella Hadid has naturally “really thin hair”, so she relies on shampoos to add grit and texture. Her favourite? The Moroccanoil Extra Volume shampoo and conditioner are staples to achieving Bella Hadid hair. The body-boosting duo doesn’t weight her hair down and still keeps it silky.
PRO TIP: Blow dry your hair upside down (starting from the inner layers of your hair and then working towards the outer layers) to maximise the effects of volumising products. The Silver Bullet Evolution Professional Hair Dryer is perfect for recreating the effortless Bella Hadid hair volume. I trialled this product for a week straight. The results? It delivers a fantastic root boost akin to a volumising perm, and the ionic generator helps protect the integrity of your hair – ensuring it is smooth, frizz-free and glossy like Bella Hadid’s hair.
She may be a supermodel, but Bella isn’t above a good beauty bargain. Amongst a suite of high-end beauty products, Bella featured the “Pantene Pro-V Smoothing Combing Cream” in her night-time beauty routine on Instagram. The leave-in product is said to repair damage, smooth frizzy har and detangle knots. Yup, replicating the lush Bella Hadid hair is as easy as a stroll to the drugstore.
Bella prefers the undone French-girl vibe that looks slightly lived in and tousled. To achieve the perfect Bella Hadid hair, she doesn’t wash her hair everyday, instead opting for the 24k Dry Shampoo on days where she skips the shampoo. It’s also perfect for giving a bouncy lift to freshly washed hair (that can often be flat!).
Bella’s favourite off-duty look? A tightly pulled-back bun or ponytail. To tame flyaway hair and produce that high-fashion slicked back effect, Bella uses “a lot of hairspray and men’s hair gel”. But before hair spray and gel, Bella will often use a drop of Moroccanoil at the front for that sleek sheen. For stronger body and hold, she relies on Ouai Wave Spray and Ouai pomade.
The product that does the heaviest lifting in achieving Bella Hadid hair? Sam McKnight’s The Cool Girl Barely There Texture Mist. Bella lauded the product as a desert-island must-have on her Instagram Story, stating: “Can someone pls tell @sammcknight1 I am out of my texture mist again … I just can’t live without this.” Famed for its ability to produce sultry bed-hair, it’s key to producing more dimension and texture in Bella’s hair.
