Jonathan Van Ness shares his top tips for flawless hair. When it comes to haircare, ‘Queer Eye’ star Jonathan Van Ness does not mess around. The 31-year-old has revealed his top tips for a flawless head of hair.
In an interview with The Cut, he says, “Not over-washing your hair gives it a nice shine. Washing your hair every day dulls it out. Silk pillowcases help keep it shiny. I also love this product by Wonder Worker by Shu Uemura. I put it in and let it air dry.”.
And for those of you who struggle with dull hair, The ‘Gay of Thrones’ star has this advice.
“If you struggle with dull hair, try finishing it up with one from Aveda (Aveda Brilliant Emollient Finishing Gloss) or Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine. If you’re a dude, try more water-based pomade as opposed to matte – it’s more absorbent.”
Jonathan also wants his fans to know that looking your best all the time is impossible and that his show is all about giving people the information to look good when they need it.
“When I run to Starbucks in the morning, I brush my teeth, floss, throw my hair up into a top knot, and it’s fine. If someone texts, ‘I’m here, come meet me’, I don’t worry about my look.”
“It’s about giving people information. It’s not about using grooming knowledge as a club of shame. It’s not, “You should be doing this or that.” It’s about changing the perception. Obviously, we want to accept and love ourselves, but there’s nothing wrong with learning.”
