Plus size models manage to look flawless in front of the camera and on their days off. Not only do they command your attention when made up, but they are equally as beautiful when they’re not working. They always look beautiful, stylish and so pulled together. So, what’s their secret to great hair?
We asked some of our favorite plus size models and past cover girls what their hair secrets were. Here is what Brittany Cordts, Kori Spencer and Christina Mendez had to say about their hair routines.
What are three words that you would use to describe your hair?
Fine, Straight, and Soft
When you’re not modeling, how do you wear your hair?
Its almost always down and straight. I love my hair curly but I value sleep way too much to get up early to curl it! If its really hot or humid outside, I’ll wear it in a low pony or side braid.
What is your daily hair routine?
I’ll wash my hair with an ultra moisturizing shampoo and conditioner but I don’t rinse the conditioner out right away. I let it soak in for the rest of my shower with the steam and rinse it out right before I get out. I then use a moisturizing, leave-in conditioner spray before combing it out. I have to use moisturizing product because my natural hair color is brown and dying it blonde could make it very dry otherwise. After I dry my hair, I spray it with Organix Ever-Straight Brazilian Keratin Flat Iron Spray before straightening it which I swear by. It strengthens, softens, and closes the cuticle for a luxurious, straight, healthy look (and it smells great!). Then, I’m good to go! If I go out later that evening, I’ll spray my roots with a dry shampoo first so my style doesn’t fall flat.
What’s your favorite thing about your hair?
My favorite thing about my hair is definitely that it’s blonde now! I’ve had various shades of brown hair my whole life so being blonde has been a new adventure. I love it! My second favorite thing is how fast it dries. Since my hair is so fine, I can literally dry my hair in about 60 seconds!
