We asked legendary hairstylist Yannick d’Is for his favorite beauty products. Here are his must-haves, straight off his latest shoot.

Supremo Magic Move Soft
“I use this product to create a solid, day-old, lived-in look on shorter hair.”

Supremo Magic Move Hard
“This product is great on medium- to longer-length hair. It’s quite matte in texture and has a dry feel. Sometimes I mix it with water to create a tougher look on boys.”

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo Powder
“I prefer the powder over the spray as you can focus more on the areas that need to be refreshed. I like to use it in the palm of my hands and rub it through the hair to help restore and clean up any overuse of products.”

TIGI Bed Head Superstar
“This product is one of the best to deliver strong hold and volume that lasts all day. It’s perfect for creating any sexy modern textures.”

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray
“Instant volume in a spray can. When used on dry hair through mid-lengths, it creates body with texture and is perfect on the root area for a matte look with volume that lasts all day.”

Fekkai Advanced Salon Technician Color Care Anti-Fade Top Coat
“I use this to help restore radiance back into the hair if it looks overworked from excessive heat styling. Perfect to use on models before hair campaigns.”

Let’s Jam Regular Hold and Mega Hold Gels
“These soft shining and conditioning gels are great to either apply to dry hair or blow dry into wet hair to help create control and direction on hair for a smooth touch and no heavy residue or flaking. My favorite for any wet looks.”

Disegnare Brush Out Spray
“This is my new discovery. I love it!!! Waterless shaping that is easily brushed out with no flaky residue, and with zero shine.”

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water
“Purified water in a spray can. The cleanest way to help revive dry-looking hair and to help control any soft flyaway hairs for close-up beauty shots.”

Oribe Original Pomade Est. 1983
“It is what it is—a classic pomade for shine and control. Great for any rock-and-roll shapes.”

Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Conditioner
“This is a lightweight conditioner to help keep hair maintainable without a greasy residue, and it does what it says—gives full-blown volume.”

Kérastase Nutritive Lait Nutri-Sculpt Smoothing Foundation
“A few pumps of this product through damp or dry hair before blowdrying will help turn it into silk, creating a glossy texture without the heavy finish.”

Kérastase Nutritive Nutri-Sculpt Mousse
“This mousse is designed specifically for dry and damaged hair, so it’s perfect while shooting to help restore hair back to a pliable and workable state. It’s great to help create bouncy hair with body and shine.”

Kérastase Nutritive Serum
“This product is more than just a serum. It acts like a leave-in conditioner. It’s not oily and can be absorbed into hair. It repairs the hair and seals down dry ends. I find it’s a great product to help give hair control and direction. It’s also a personal favorite of mine for any close-up hair or beauty campaigns.”
