If you spend half your monthly paycheck on expensive and complex treatments and products to get your hair not to resemble a particularly dishevelled bird’s nest, we’ve got some good news for you.

Celebrity hairstylist Yianni Tsapatori, the man responsible for Deepika Padukone’s effortlessly elegant red carpet and editorial hairdos, was recently in the capital city for a Dyson masterclass. We manage to corner him for a few insider secrets to make our non-celebrity hair look red carpet-ready without breaking the bank or promising your firstborn to a wish-granting witch.

As it turns out, Deepika Padukone is unafraid to put in the elbow grease to ensure her hair looks picture-perfect every time she steps out. “One hair care hack that Deepika swears by is brushing her hair and scalp regularly to maintain a healthy scalp, which in turn promotes healthy hair growth,” said the Greek hairstylist, “She (also) emphasises hydration and uses nourishing hair masks to keep her locks luscious and vibrant.”

While a mix of consistent haircare and a formidable team of experts stand behind Deepika’s gorgeous locks, Yianni claims you can add a few tricks to your arsenal for your hair to rival an international movie star’s too. “Achieving red carpet-ready hair at home is possible with the right techniques and products,” he said, “Start by prioritising hair health with regular conditioning treatments and minimising heat damage by using heat protectants. Experiment with different hairstyles and textures to find what suits you best, and don’t forget the finishing touches like shine serums for added gloss. With advanced technology products like Dyson Airwrap multi-styler, it has become easy to flawless hairstyles.”

The celebrity hairstylist is only too happy to share his top hacks for haircare that can transform your hair this Summer. “Firstly, prioritise hydration. Second, a balanced diet rich in protein, whether from vegetarian or non-vegetarian sources. Third, minimise heat usage and always protect your hair. Fourth, use the right hair products, including a shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair type. And lastly, experiment with hairstyles and find what works best for you. Don’t hesitate to take inspiration from celebrities, but always tailor it to your own preferences and needs.”

There you have it!
