"My next kit essential is these great sectioning clips. These are the crocodile rose gold clips from Kitsch and I just love them because they glide through the hair easily and they can hold a lot of hair without slipping or falling. I use these clips for sectioning the hair as I work my irons through the hair."
"These make it really easy for the hairline to lay flat and smooth or if I'm setting a look and want it to hold a certain shape until it cools, I use these clips. You guys have no idea how many questions I get about these creaseless clips! They definitely make the biggest difference in making a hairstyle look polished and put together and it just is super simple and an easy thing you can add to your hairstyling routine."
"For every hairstylist or any beauty girl, these are the two brushes I think everyone needs. Sheila Stotts extension removal brush, but I actually use it as a detangling brush because it doesn't pull or snag on the hair. And then a smoothing brush -- this is a bore and nylon mix bristle brush from Ibiza and this is just great for brushing through the hair, smooth styles and taming frizz."
"I use this to touch up any gray hairs if people have exposed partings or hairlines and to tint hair extensions if I need to change or adjust the hair color. This root concealer comes in every color you would ever need for your hair, so it's really easy. Sometimes I even blend colors depending on the shade that I need."
"I love the Leonor Greyl E'Clat Naturel for polishing the ends. This is basically lotion for your hair. If your ends feel dry or frizzy, you just run a little bit through the ends and it makes them look polished and put-together."
"This is a new product. It's pretty innovative and it feels kind of funny because you're putting something wet onto dry hair, but you massage it into the hair and it gives the hair a fluffy messy kind of gritty texture."
"I'm a big fan of products that you can scrunch into the hair, so another one of my favorites is the R+Co pomade mousse. I love this for curly looks or for looks that want a lot of volume. I really like to massage it into the roots and through the ends and it gives the hair a fluffy texture."
Getting clean partings is really essential if you're gonna do a sleek middle part, a sleek side part or if you're doing braids -- so I always have a really great Rat Tail Comb -- this is from YS Park and it just makes sure I can get those really clean, perfect lines."
"One of the things I never leave the house without is hair extensions. This is a hidden crown halo headband-style extension. It's really easy to put on. It gives instant length and volume. This is something every girl can use."
"I get a lot of questions about how to do a wet look and what it really comes down to is product. The hair is not actually wet, but we're giving the illusion of it being wet. So I love Fatboy Tough Guy Water Wax. It's kind of like a wet-looking pomade and I work that through the roots and it gives it hold and that shiny glossy feel that makes it feel like the hair's wet."
"My ride-or-die hair product is hairspray. I could definitely not live without it and I can use it to create any look. If there's one product I had in my kit it would just be the Tresemmé Micro Mist Hairspray in Extend. This is a strong hold hairspray, but I can still work it through the hair, which I love."
