The Hair Tricks We Learnt Backstage At X Factor

Its’ not everyday you get to mingle with the stars and rub shoulders with a contestant on one of the biggest TV shows in Britain, X Factor. But that’s exactly what our Beauty Editor, Samantha  Freedman, got to do on Sunday night. After watching the show she got taken on an exclusive trip backstage to meet the beauty gurus grooming the contestants. Here’s what she learnt from Jamie Stevens, The Tresemme X Factor Stylist:


1.    My wonder product this series has been Tresemme’s Oil Elixir, £9.99, it’s perfect for hair like Fleur’s.

2.    I carry the most unusual things in my kit, including a fork. It’s great for creating a sleek, straight parting.

3.    When we’re limited with time I mix products together in my palm, then apply them to the hair. My perfect combo is a shine serum and body booster.

4.     My static hair trick is to spray hairspray over the area in need, then rub the can over the top, it’ll take away fly aways instantly!


Thank you Jamie! We’ll be sure to save these tips for our party hairstyles. Stay tuned for more X Factor goss!
