Great hair needs great products, but choosing which ones to buy can be an expensive business. It’s hard to know which ones work best, and finding out means buying them all and trying them out. If only there was an expert you could ask. Someone who uses new hair products on all sorts of people, of all sorts of ages and every hair type. Someone like a hair stylist.

We asked the stylists at The Cutting Garden to recommend their top six products. They told us exactly which ones they love and told us exactly why so we put it all together into this handy guide.

Feel free to share this with your friends too.
