Tastemakers Favorite Hair Products

Have you ever spotted a stranger with hair so good that it makes you do a double take? Of course you have, and we're right there with you. If only we could casually tap her on the shoulder and ask her to share her styling secrets (in perfect detail and slowly, please, so we don't miss a step). Well, we did just that with our 2019 Southern Living Tastemakers. We asked this influencing set to cue us in on how they make the most of their hair—whether it's wavy, natural, color treated, frizz prone, or fine. Find a new haircare superhero in this bunch and perhaps a new style icon too.
