Influencers Say These Hair Must-Haves Should Be on Your Back-to-School List

Add to Cart! The Pros Say These Hair Must-Haves Should Be on Your Back-to-School List

Our favorite hairstylists are getting us campus ready with their product must-haves and back-to-school styling tips.

In our eyes, no back-to-school shopping list is complete without hair products to carry you through shuffling between classes, homecoming festivities, dorm fun, and more. We always rely on the pros in our time of need to recommend the best professional hair products to add to cart, and back-to-school season is no exception. “New semester, new you!” says Bradley Leake, celebrity stylist and Hair.com Ambassador. “Heading back to school is a great time to change up your look and experiment with a new hairstyle or hair color to put your trendiest foot forward for the school year.”

During our Mane Campus: Semester of Style campaign we chatted with top hairstylists on their hair must-haves for this semester. The pros spill on how these styling products and tools will get you influencer-worthy locks and save you a trip to the salon. Even better, all of their picks are shoppable right here on Hair.com. You’re welcome!
