Inside My Tool Kit

Megan McIntyre

While the hairstyles I create may look effortless, there’s actually a lot of work that goes into each one. Before I do hair for a special event, I have to think about what is in my kit and make sure I have all the right stuff. From Angelina Jolie, Gabrielle Union, Anne Hathaway, Debra Messing, Joy Bryant, Claire Danes — each has her own style and different hair type. Extensions are one of the most important things in my kit, so I make sure that I have them in every color. I usually use clip-on’s because they are easy to put in and take out and don’t cause much stress on the hair. They aren’t so much of a commitment as permanent extensions.

Products are an important thing for me and an important part of making my girls’ hair look its BEST!! Here are the things I bring with me to make my Gibson Girls feel and look good.

9 different sized curling irons
1 flatiron
5 different sizes round brushes
1 big box of hair pins (to anchor hair)
1 big box of bobby pins (to lightly hold hair in place)
10 different colored hair elastics

Beautiful Hold Hairspray
Build It Blow Drying Agent
Hair Sheet Styling
Tame It Shine Lotion
Goodnite Replenish Hair Serum
Daily Cleanse Shampoo
Daily Nourish Conditoner
Baby powder (to add texture make product application easier and subtly scent hair)

Yes, I lug all this around in a BIG Tumi Bag that I carry with me from shoot to shoot, from plane to plane, from home to salon and from hotel to suite. I love my work and feel so blessed to love what I do.

Tip: Always remember to rinse hair with cool water when washing out your conditioner. It will help to give you brilliant shine and close down the cuticle.
