How to get red carpet ready hair

With the Met Gala and Cannes come and gone and leaving us in a whirl of inspiration, we put together a few tips on how to get Red Carpet Ready hair with some of our favourite styling products. Have a look below on the must-haves to not only help you achieve those looks at home, but that will protect your hair and keep those styles in place.

It starts with tools

Give a girl the right tools and she can conquer the world… or in this case, any hairstyle! Our CHI Luxury range will ensure that you’re always ready to achieve any look you want.


CHI Luxury Back Comb
 (R195.00) is a multi-pronged comb which is perfect for teasing, back-combing and styling hair. It has a large rat tail which is great for detangling, parting and lifting the hair and works on all hair types.






Say hello to shiny, long and healthy hair with the 
CHI Luxury Nylon and Boar Bristle Paddle Brush (R465.00). It has extra-long nylon pins which detangle, while the boar bristles gently smooth hair and add shine. The pins help to redistribute the natural oils in your hair while reducing frizz and stimulating the scalp.





CHI Luxury Large Round Brush
 (R465.00) is a must-have to help you create beautiful curls while adding volume to your hair. Its ergonomically designed handle provides a soft touch comfortable grip which allows for easy manoeuvring while creating the perfect blowouts and curls. The ceramic barrel provides faster drying time and reduces frizz which we love.



Add some heat

Now that you have the basic tools, it's time to add some heat to help achieve the style you want.

Whether its waves, curls or straightness that you’re after, the CHI Luxury 3 in 1 Iron (R2995.00) can do it all. Infused with our favourite, the CHI Black Seed Oil, the 1-inch rounded ceramic plates promotes long-lasting smoothness and incredible shine. We love how easy it is to use as the smooth silicone strip on the inner plates provide additional grip and control during styling. It has multiple styling capabilities such as:
  • Smooth: Heats only the inner plates of the iron creating straight and smooth styles
  • Curl: Heats only the outer plates; by using the lock feature this tool can also be used as a wand
  • Smooth & Curl: Heats the outer and inner plates at once allowing the iron to wave, wrap or bend the hair into various looks and styles.

Keep it in place

Now that you achieved your desired style, be sure to keep it in place with some of our favourite CHI styling products.


Add intense texture, volume and hold to any hairstyle with the CHI Royal Treatment Ultimate Control Hairspray. This fast-drying and volumizing hair spray is infused with white truffle and peal which not only adds volume but also leaves you with a thicker and fuller style for the ultimate glamorous finish. We love that it moisturizes, strengthens and rejuvenates your hair while protecting it against environmental damage
