Phyto Instant Hydrating Conditioner & Phyto Protective Beach Spray

Summer Hair. Marta Walsh is LOVING Phyto Instant Hydrating Conditioner & Phyto Protective Beach Spray. The Hydrating Conditioner I spray on wet hair before blow drying. it smells fresh and doesn’t weight down my hair. Formulated with sunflower oil which is a natural UV filter. The Protective Beach Spray is an essential oil for your hair when you spend time on the beach, the pool and anywhere under the sun. It’s such a classic, this one is the original formula since 1974! (yes I know, way before our time).

Celebrity stylist Peter Gray shares with us how he created the eye-catching style for Michelle’s short cropped hair:

“The dress was so beautiful with those bronzes and golds that I wanted to reflect that in her hair. I didn’t want it to look styled or even blow-dried, so I created the whole effect on freshly-shampooed, naturally-dried hair. My inspiration was a modern day Jean Seberg with a “Breathless” nuance, but with a soft, sexy and defined texture.”
