It’s been quiet for a while on my blog but I’m back with a raving review about the amazing haircare and styling products by Kristin Ess – the stylist behind Lauren Conrad, Lucy Hale, and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Being an avid TheBeautydepartment.com reader and long-term follower of Kristin Ess‘ Instagram profile (and now also following the Instagram profile of George – her dog), I was stoked when I heard that she will be launching her own haircare and styling product line.
The line offers four categories: The pink products are for cleansing and conditioning in the shower, the white products are for restoration after you shower, the gray products are for styling wet hair, and the black products are for styling dry hair.
Kristin Ess‘ goal was to create an affordable collection of luxury haircare and styling products so that everyone is able to create perfectly-imperfect hair. With more than twenty years of experience as a celebrity top hairstylist, she developed an amazing range of products and launched them just last year in the US. She partnered up with Target where people could buy her products to an absolutely affordable price. Sadly, Target doesn’t ship to Switzerland. Luckily I traveled to the United States in November and went straight to a Target store to get my hands on her products. As there are weight limitations when traveling (darn!) I had to limit my choice and got The One Signature Shampoo, The One Signature Conditioner, and the Depth Defining Water-Based Pomade. I also got one of her limited Christmas gift sets containing a travel-sized Dry Finish Working Texture Spray, the Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray, and a cute hair pin.
Having tried these products, I can highly recommend them to anyone looking for professional but wallet-friendly hair care products. You will love the smell and functionality of the products. Especially the handling of the squeezable shampoo and conditioner bottles is a huge plus in my opinion. To finish a hairstyle I love using the pomade as well as the texture spray, as it does not leave your hair being sticky. And I can’t wait to try the beach wave spray in Summer! Since everyone went crazy about the products, Kristin Ess started to partner up with other non-US shops to spread her products all over the world. So if you’re based in Europe, you can buy her products exclusively on NICHE-BEAUTY.de! I think I don’t have to explain that I’ve already ordered a couple more products…
