The ultimate treat & no other than the recipient of the ‘Best Hair Innovation Tool’, the Dyson Corrale is straight up the best hair styling tool we’ve ever come across. Revolutionary, it causes 50% less damage than regular straighteners (as only one pass is required, thanks to its grooves), is cordless, sports innovative design, AND creates stunning tousled waves. Nicer, better, faster, shinier.
Behind the swoon-worthy packaging lies magic in a bottle. Synonymous with the glamorous ’90s supermodel era, we are truly obsessed with hairstylist Oribe Canales’s luxe line, renown signature fragrance (after all, their tubes are inspired by perfume), and ultra-potent formulas. This cream-to-oil, oil-to-powder texture provides serious luster to damaged and ageing strands, tames flyaways and dramatically extends any hairstyle thanks to its key ingredients: plant collagen extract, caffeine, biotin, and an amino acid complex. The newly revamped bottle is now easier to use as the product is dispensed as a continual ribbon, on top of now being made of aluminum, so entirely recyclable.
Infamous for her face serums (referred to as ‘the Sturmglow”), this high-performance molecular cosmetics line focuses on a science-driven approach. A pioneer, Dr. Sturm rose to fame after launching her bespoke plasma-based cream (sadly, only available to her patients), as the subject’s own blood cells produce proteins that fight inflammation and speed up the healing process. Ironically, the scalp is largely responsible for healthy hair, yet remains too often overlooked -or even neglected. This scalp serum provides intense hydration and boosts the overall scalp health, thanks to its formula infused with hyaluronic acid, arginine, caffeine and papaya extract, as well as a rejuvenating ingredient obtained from the Indian Kino Tree. The end results: strong, beautiful hair and a soothed, perfectly balanced scalp.

Aerin Lauder’s striking designs – whether it is THAT limited edition gold caddy or her fragrance collection – are simply exquisite. Turn a mundane task into a regal ritual, thanks to this classic cushioned paddle hairbrush adorned with gold-tone bristles that gently detangle any type of hair. Lightweight and handcrafted in Italy, it will look breathtaking on any vanity.
Approximately $89.00 CAD, net-a-porter.com.
Byredo masters the art of hair perfume like no other. The revered Swedish label has successfully distilled its niche fragrances into a range of sensational candles, body care products and hair mists. Incredibly chic and unisex, Byredo makes some of the most intriguing and sensual scents, which were drawn from the founder’s Indian heritage & memories. Pure olfactory delights, Byredo’s hair perfumes all truly stand apart. We’ve particularly fond of Bal d’Afrique and Black Saffron.

The famed grooming wizard-family-owned-and-operated, New York apothecary is at it again, this time with a sensationally fresh & detoxifying scalp mask. Infused with 2% alpha hydroxyl acids, this 5-minute hair ritual removes build-up, exfoliates and balances excess oil while deeply purifying all hair types and textures. Fatty acid-rich oils, spearmint leaf and peppermint oils soothe irritated skin while the seriously heavenly gel to foam texture fully oxygenates while making the hair look fuller. Divine after a long winter run outside or a sweaty Peloton sesh!
Arguably the most sensational hair treatment currently available, period. We’re utterly obsessed with this incredibly potent balm that makes our tresses look luxurious overnight. Applied at bed time once a week on lengths and especially on any damaged areas, the rich, melt-in formula is packed with active ingredients and high-quality oils that encourage extreme hair repair during our sleep, as it treats, regenerates and enhances the hair fibre. Psst: No need to worry about your Frette sheets: the formula is naturally absorbed by the hair so it doesn’t stain. An absolute beauty must, in order to keep one’s locks luscious, silky and healthy.
