Sally Hershberger is the coolest hairstylist ever. She began doing hair at eighteen, landed an apprenticeship with Arthur Johns while still in beauty school, and quickly began working with famed photographers like Herb Ritts, Steven Meisel, Annie Leibovitz and Helmut Newton. Sally’s celebrity clientele is equally impressive, and includes Michelle Pfeiffer, Meg Ryan, Sandra Bullock, Winona Ryder, Courtney Love, Rene Zellweger, Julia Roberts, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss and many more.
Sally Hershberger became widely known for creating Meg Ryan’s much-copied haircut the “Sally Shag”. And of course, she (awesomely) appeared on the Bravo reality show, Shear Genius. AND she’s the inspiration behind Shane McCutcheon on The L Word.
Of course, Sally also has a product line, which I have been trying it out. I started with the Shampoo and Conditioner for Wavy Hair. They smell great and leave my hair with a nice beachy scent through the next day. The shampoo didn’t dry out my hair, and the conditioner was moisturizing without being too heavy. $9.50 each
Luxe Layers Protective Blow Out Gel: Luxe Layers was my favorite Sally Hershberger Hair Care product that I tried. It’s a weightless, water-based gel that helps protect hair from heat and humidity while adding amazing shine and texture to your style. It contains no alcohol, silicones or oils. It didn’t weigh down my hair and gave me a super smooth blowout. Luxe Layers is brand new–it just launched this month and is available exclusively on HSN. Price $18.00
Style Primer for Wavy Hair: The Style Primer comes in a mousse form, yet it’s creamier than a typical mousse. I only used a small amount; it did not weigh down my hair, but it did smooth out my frizzies and flyaways. This product is suppose to be used as a “primer” before you use other styling products. It provides thermal protection from heat styling and boosts the performance of other styling products. Price $12.50
Wave Spray: When I don’t blowout my hair, it’s wavy, so I do love a good Wave Spray! And this one is top notch. I just sprayed a little product onto my hand, and applied it through my hair after I used the Style Primer. Then I let my hair air dry. Once it was dry, I sprayed a little more Wave Spray directly onto my hair for texture. The end result is that messy, piecey beach look. And it has a nice tropical scent too. Price $12.50
Finishing Cream for Wavy Hair: The Finishing Cream enhances waves, smoothes hair, and adds gloss. It softens frizz, works to condition hair, and intensify shine. Price $12.50
