Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel on how to dress tresses for an outdoor affair.
Written By Jess Basser Sanders
If you ever receive a carefully calligraphed invitation to a garden party, you may find yourself asking (once the lawn-appropriate shoes are selected) just what to do about your hair.
Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel is certainly qualified on the subject. He tends a dreamy garden of his own, and handles the tresses of likely lawn-party attendees like Reese Witherspoon and Anne Hathaway. Here, Abergel shares his top product picks and tips for outdoor soirées.
The acacia collagen and vegetal oils in this jasmine-scented mask will work hair into its most manageable state, especially for dry and thin locks. Abergel recommends leaving the mask on for ten minutes before washing it off. “Hair regains immediate shine, softness, and manageability,” he says of the hair booster.

This hair primer acts as a shield against the elements, making it perfect for al fresco occasions. “It’s weightless, so it keeps the moisture out and allows hair to stay shiny and gorgeous during an outdoor party,” says Abergel.
No need to dream about voluminous hair—Serge Normant’s Dream Big Volumizing Spray can make it a reality. “Spray this on dry hair, concentrating on the roots, before throwing it into a chignon or updo,” says Abergel. “It helps to give hair texture for an effortless, tousled, undone style.”

For many of us, the great outdoors means one thing: frizz. Abergel’s secret weapon is this humidity-fighting spray. “It shields hair from frizz, so it’s a must for any type of humidity. It protects blowouts, waves, and updos on the sultriest of days.”
