We caught up with celebrity hair colourist Justin Anderson recently, the man responsible for the hair hues of Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Margot Robbie (to name a few). As you've probably guessed, his forte is blonde – a high-maintenance hair colour that requires plenty of upkeep.
One of Anderson's main clients is actress Margot Robbie, who he clearly loves working with.
"Margot’s really, really fun to collaborate with. She works on a lot of amazing projects and her style is always so great," he told us. "She’s really open to taking on a lot of changes. We’ve done a lot of different hair colours over the years."
But with constant colour changes and daily heat styling comes inevitable damage, and Justin has some solid-gold advice for clients who want to repair and nourish their colour-treated tresses, especially if they're wearing a wig on set.
"The great thing about Suicide Squad is Margot's hair was a wig, so we put either Olaplex or dpHUE oil in her hair, and she would alternate between the products to keep her hair really, really healthy under the wig," he explained.
Olaplex's bond-strengthening treatments work by penetrating deep into the hair strand (rather than remaining on the surface of your hair), meaning the treatment is reparative rather than just shine-enhancing. What's more, the brand just dropped its strongest at-home treatment yet, scientifically proven to encourage 68 per cent more repair. Available at Space NK and Feel Unique, Olaplex No.0 can currently be bought as part of a kit, also featuring the No.3 Hair Protector.
The dpHUE is actually Anderson's own brand of colour-focused haircare. It's not available to buy in the UK at the moment, so duties and VAT are reflected in the price. The good news is, you don't have to be a wig-wearing actress to benefit from these products.
