In the October issue of IMAGE, on shelves today, MELANIE MORRIS shares the most effective products and solutions for home hairstyling at salon-quality standards. Here, she shares your essential at-home kit.

1 Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring, €5.99

Secure updos like a pro with these sturdy elastics. They minimise breakage too.

2 Redken Blondage Shampoo, €18.50, and Conditioner, €21

Keep creamy/ash/platinum blondes fresh with purple products. For a more regular/gentle hit, mix half quantities of purple shampoo with your usual brand, or use for just one shampoo out of two.

3 IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo, €23.24

Invisible, weightless and non-gritty, yet offers all the volume, grip and texture you could hope for. Our favourite this year.

4 Kevin Murphy Color.Bug, €18

Colour without commitment; simply rub onto hair and brush to integrate. Great for coloured (or multi-coloured) tips or a balayage effect.

5 Kérastase L’Incroyable Blowdry, €26

A super-light styling cream with a memory… apply, style and restyle at speed; this product will return hair to its original blow-dry shape up to four times. Magic.

6 ghd Heat Protect Spray, €15.50

Does exactly as promised, and the perfect partner to any heated styling tools.

7 Acca Kappa Oval Medium Extension Brush, €30

By royal appointment, and not surprisingly so, this brush gets roots, extensions and ends smoothed out in seconds, and eliminates matting with ease.

For more effective products and solutions for home hairstyling at salon-quality standards, check out the October issue of IMAGE Magazine, on shelves nationwide now.
