Chrissy Teigen Has the World's Coolest Hairdressers, So Yes, We Want Her Hair

Updated 07/07/19

There aren't many Instagram accounts that we'd be willing to turn post notifications on for, but Chrissy Teigen's is the exception. While we eagerly await her adorable family posts, her troll clapbacks and spot-on opinions about pretty much everything, there's another thing we can't get enough of: her hair. She usually sticks to her trademark highlighted colour, though she's always willing to switch things up—giving us plenty of looks to pop into our own hairstyle catalogues. We did some Insta-stalking and decided to take a trip through her hair history to find her top hits. Get ready to screenshot.

Teigen sure knows how to rock a red carpet ponytail, and this is exactly the way to do it. Keep things super-sleek and in place with Ouai Smooth Spray (£22). Then wrap your hair around the ponytail.

A low bun can take you everywhere, and we're huge fans of Teigen's take on this classic. Get a helping hand to keep flyaways in check with Oribe Superfine Hairspray (£35).

This is the ultimate glamour-girl style. The look here is the kind of blowout that we'd be willing to sacrifice an extra hour in bed for. If you struggle to get enough volume with your blow-dryer, add Davines Your Hair Assistant Blowdry Primer (£25) to your routine.

This is a signature for Teigen. The tousled curls have an effortless texture that never makes them look too "done."

This fishtail braid is worth every single moment of practice to get it just right. The loose volume at the front softens the look. A healthy dose of Hair by Sam McKnight Cool Girl Texturising Spray (£25) will help you re-create it.

Oh hello, high bun. We can't get enough of this super-easy style complete with loose tendrils pulled out over the ears. Meet your new summer style.

There's nothing like a quick parting switch to refresh your look. If you usually go for a side parting, move it over to the middle and then straighten the hair.

Teigen proves that she can do no wrong in the hairstyle stakes with this off-duty look. A double French plait when it's scorching outside? Sign us up.

We've all tried (or wanted to try) fringe at some point, usually to varying degrees of success. Take a cue from Teigen and fake it by pulling out strands from a high bun. Keep ends straight and smooth with Cloud Nine The Original Iron (£139) to make it look more realistic.

You don't need 24 inches of hair to go for an Old-Hollywood look. Combine loose, brushed-out waves with a sleek tuck behind the ears and you're good to go. Don't underestimate the power of a good brush out—Raincry Boar Bristle Paddle Brush (£72) will do the job.

If you're growing out a bob, it's easy to run out of simple styles to choose from. Follow Teigen's lead when you're in a rut by going for a combed-over tuck behind the ears with plenty of shine.

These face-framing layers belong on the wedding guest summer circuit. When paired with a low bun or a plait, it'll take all the guesswork out of finding a cool, effortless style.

Wet-look hair is in, and it's so easy to achieve the "fresh out the shower but still totally put together" look. If you have no idea where to start, all you need to do is liberally apply L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Wet Domination Shower Shine (£12) before combing through.

When in doubt, a hairband will always have your back (it's also a holiday staple). Find a bold one like ASOS Design Headband in Leaf and Floral Print (£6) and style the hair with beach waves.

We're all about the texture that's going on in this lob, and love the contrast between the neat roots and disheveled ends. Make Kevin Murphy Bedroom Hair (£22) your best friend to re-create the lived-in effect.

If your obsession with Chrissy Teigen wasn't already at an all-time high, we guarantee it will be once you re-create one of her signature hairstyles.
