Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause is no stranger to the world of larger-than-life hair looks—our all-time favorite was her bubble ponytail—but whether she’s going for a casual wave or another show-stopping updo, they all share one common thread: UNITE Hair Expanda Dust ($27), a product her hairstylist Bradley Leake says “adds grit to her soft, silky strands.”
“I love this powder for adding fullness and volume with a little bit of grit to any hairstyle or clients with flat, limp hair,” says Leake. “The key factor with using EXPANDA Dust is to remember, a little goes a long way. I love to tap the product sparingly through the desired styling section, then lift the hair up with my fingers to create volume. I also love to shake EXPANDA Dust through braids for a pulled apart boho vibe.”
A few other products that also live in his kit are L’Oreal Hair Touch Up Spray ($25), which covers up pesky grays or scalp spots, Oribe Straight Away Smoothing Blowout Cream ($44) and ColorWow Dream Coat ($28) to smooth out frayed ends.
See below for our top three favorite looks, all styled by Leake.
According to Leake’s post, these iconic bubble braids were made using a few staples: ColorWow Style on Steroids Texturizing Spray ($26), L’Oreal Hair Touch Up Spray and UNITE Expanda Dust.
We wish we could rock this smooth blowout every day of the year. To achieve this look, Leake used Hidden Crown Clip-In Hair Extensions ($99) to add a boost of volume and length, Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel ($46) to control baby hairs and UNITE Expanda Dust.
