In Part 2 of this week’s bonus episodes, we have celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin in the house!! She’s the founder of Ouai haircare, she created the hugely popular educational website, Mane Addicts by and for hair professionals, she’s a Dyson ambassador and she works with Hollywood’s elite, from the Kardashians to the Jenners to Chrissy Teigen and Bella Hadid. And while we may have missed out on Jen Atkin’s sold-out Sephoria session where she demonstrated how-to-use Dyson’s new multi-purpose hair tool, the AirWrap, we got a one-on-one preview just days before the event!

Jen Atkin live demos Dyson’s AirWrap at Sephoria

The trend-setting hairstylist regaled us with tips and tricks on how to use the $600 wand—six years and 642 prototypes in the making—that uses air instead of strand-frying heat to create a multitude of styles. Said to basically replace your curling iron, your straightening iron and even your blowdryer, the smart innovation is available at sephora.com/sephora.ca and dyson.com/dysoncanada.ca, as well as in Dyson Demo Stores.

After that, listen in for the scoop on Jen’s favourite hair look right now, what else she will be launching in the next several weeks (and a contraband bath & body scrub that’s for friends only, shhh). We discussed what Halloween costume she’ll be wearing this year (guesses, anyone??)
