Ep 78 – #TheGlowDown: Kim Kardashian’s Mane Man Chris Appleton Reveals His #1 Frizz Fix, The Hair Tool He Can’t Do Without and His Trick for Flawless Extensions

August 14, 2019

celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton reveal his hair secrets!

Meet Chris Appleton, the hairstylist to Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and JLo and card-carrying member of the glammiest of glam squads (that gang also includes Mario Dedivanovic aka Makeup by Mario.) Chris is known for his fantastical looks that we first see on a celebrity, and then on the stylish girl on the street. Case in point: Ariana Grande’s snatched ponytail, Kim’s sexy summer bob and the neon green hair trend courtesy of one of his plethora of wigs (psst: many of these are created by stylist and wig maker extraordinaire William Jackson @TokyoStylez.)

Tune in to hear Chris’ master tips on how to put in extensions without any of the tell-tale signs (that ‘shelf’, ugh), the exact steps to achieving glass hair and what to do about summer frizz. Plus, Chris tells us a little behind-the-scene story about how he chased Katy Perry around with a leaf blower for her Never Really Over video, and the reason he used a coat hanger to get her soft-focus 70s curls. And finally, listen until the end when Chris gets personal, to find out what inspired him to get into the hair industry in the first place.
