OLAPLEX Nº.7 Bonding Oil Is the Red Carpet MVP Celebrity Stylists Love Using

Each year, the brightest and biggest names in fashion, music, and film converge on the red carpet, dressed to the nines and setting beauty and fashion trends for months (or years!) to come. OLAPLEX Global Ambassadors and celebrity stylists like Vernon Francois, Tracey Cunningham, Halley Brisker, Kat Thompson, and Jenna Perry were behind many of the stunning looks seen on the red carpet, all of whom had a particular product in their kits: OLAPLEX N º.7 Bonding Oil. When it comes to versatile hair products, OLAPLEX N º.7 is considered a holy grail. Colorists and stylists use it during every step of their work, whether as a wash-and-go product after a color touch-up, a styling tool, or having a client use it as a leave-in overnight.

There is a lot of magic in a bottle of OLAPLEX N º.7 Bonding Oil. The product, formulated and made with a blend of nourishing plant oils, offers a multitude of benefits. It tames flyaways, brings tons more shine (125%!), and can control frizz for up to 72 hours, but it’s not just for regular styling. OLAPLEX N º.7 helps reduce breakage and protects hair from heat up to 450°F. Plus, you can also use it on either damp or dry hair. No wonder it’s a red carpet favorite!

Are you attending a friend’s wedding this summer or just want magazine-ready hair for a night out on the town? Keep reading to learn how the OLAPLEX Global Ambassadors and celebrity stylists use OLAPLEX N º.7 for red-carpet hair tips you can use yourself.

Protecting the Scalp While Smoothing Strands

OLAPLEX Nº.7 Bonding Oil is a versatile choice, perfect for a range of hairstyles, including braids and protective styles for Black hair. Celebrity hairstylist Vernon François incorporates it into his red-carpet styling process in multiple ways. “Besides massaging it into the scalp, it acts as a finishing touch, enhancing shine and smoothing where necessary,” says Vernon, sharing one valuable tip: “Keep this close to you!”

Styling Blonde Hair Without Weighing it Down

If you have blonde hair (especially if it’s processed), you probably already know that heavy styling products can make hair look limp, flat, or even greasy. Thankfully, using a lightweight hair oil instead can make a world of difference. OLAPLEX Ambassador and celebrity hair colorist Tracey Cunningham uses OLAPLEX N º.7 Bonding Oil as the final touch when refreshing a client’s beautiful blonde color. She also likes to pair OLAPLEX N º.7 with OLAPLEX Nº.6 Bond Smoother for a dual powerhouse that keeps frizz at bay. “These products are perfect to finish any look as they don’t weigh the hair down,” says Tracey.

Bringing Shine to Simple Updos

For a formal event, a classic updo is always a winning choice. OLAPLEX Global Ambassador and celebrity stylist Halley Brisker opted for a simple yet elegant chignon for a standout red carpet look, using OLAPLEX N º.7 to add lustrous shine to the style. If you're planning a similar look for your next dressy event, take a cue from Halley and use OLAPLEX N º.7 to add shine before twisting your ponytail into the bun or chignon and securing it with bobby pins.
“OLAPLEX N º.7 Bonding Oil is your friend when it comes to shine, and creating a chignon is very simple with the right tools, so it’s all about having fun with it,” says Halley.

Keeping Fresh Color Protected from Heat

Getting ready for a high-fashion event means blow-drying, flat-ironing, curling, or sometimes, all three! All hair types, especially color-treated hair, must be adequately protected against heat. OLAPLEX Global Ambassador and celebrity colorist Jenna Perry used OLAPLEX N º.7 on freshly dyed hair to “achieve the rich, glossy look” and protect it from a long day of heat and styling.

Elevating a Sleek Straight Style

A fancy, elaborate hairstyle isn’t a requirement for a formal event. Gorgeous downstyles are just as common as updos on the red carpet. And if you have a chin or shoulder-length bob, OLAPLEX Nº.7 Bonding Oil might be your secret weapon. Celebrity hairstylist Kat Thompson used it as the final step to make a straight bob hairstyle look polished and sophisticated. “The best way to achieve this look is by using clips to section your hair to get it as sleek and smooth as possible, all while using products like OLAPLEX Nº.6 Styling Treatment to soften the hair texture and get that silky look,” says Kat. “Then finish with the OLAPLEX N º.7 Bonding Oil to add shine and glow.”
