What’s in Kristin’s bag
Between tending to her celeb clients, creating her popular hair tutorials and coming up with new products for her hair care line (available exclusively at Target), calling Kristin Ess “busy” would be an understatement. Unsurprisingly, the beauty boss has her on-the-go essentials down to a science. We asked Kristin to spill her bag for us, and it’s filled with her hardest-working, most trusted beauty products.
Everyday Go-Tos Kristin’s everyday bag is filled with essentials like Bio-Oil Multi-Use Skincare Oil, a Kristin Ess French pin for easy updos, Kristin Ess Working Texture Spray for touch-ups, an NYX Powder Puff Lippie and some wear-with-everything gold hoops. (Bonus! Kristin’s French pins and Working Texture Spray are also available in travel sizes for extra portability.)
On-the-Go Essentials When she’s on the road, Kristin grabs a refillable travel kit to decant her favorite products herself. “I love being able to take any products I want, anytime,” she says. Plus, “It cuts back on plastic waste." Other travel faves include the Kristin Ess Rose Gold Detangling Hair Brush and the Kristin Ess Space-Saving Compact Hair Dryer, matcha green tea for jet lag and Pacifica Dream Sleep Beauty Gummies to help her sleep.
Self-Care Picks In the rare moments she has some downtime, Kristin keeps it simple. “I put my phone on ‘Do Not Disturb’ and make a bath” with one of her favorite bath bombs, she says. Other times, she’ll apply a Kristin Ess hair mask along with a face mask and put on her favorite show. (“Probably reruns of Schitt’s Creek,” she says.) Then, if she has any energy left she’ll treat herself to a mani-pedi.
The hair products Kristin Ess can’t live without.
