When you're a celebrity hairstylist, working on-the-go is pretty standard. Just ask Andrew Fitzsimons, whose client roster includes Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls—oh, and every single member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. He’s known for creating effortless bombshell waves. Whether he's on a far flung island taming flyaways or crossing the country to deliver a waist-grazing ponytail, Fitzsimons is always prepared with his trusty essential-filled kit. Here, the Dublin-born pro stylist shares the five products he never leaves home without—because you can never be too prepared.
"This dryer checks all the boxes I look for: it heats up really quickly, cuts down on overall blowdry time and it's super lightweight. As a freelance hair stylist, I'm constantly traveling everywhere with a huge suitcase of everything I need for my clients, so when the tools are lighter—but still effective—it makes everything more manageable."
"I use hair oil every single day—it's one of the most versatile products in my kit. I can use it before blow drying for heat protection and to really smooth out the hair, as a finisher to smooth out any flyaways, to give definition to texture, to moisturize ends and so on. I love this particular formula because it's lightweight enough to use on thinner hair without weighing it down, but moisturizing enough for thicker hair."
