anthony-cristiano1

Anthony Cristiano has one of the most glam jobs on the planet, and that is to get some of Hollywood’s hottest personalities red carpet-ready (think Demi Moore, Uma Thurman and Brazilian model Adriana Lima, to name a few). His work has appeared in top fashion publications including Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar and he is constantly tapped by hair care brands for his expertise. Most recently, he assumed the role of Global Artistic Director at Paris-based hair care and styling brand, Phyto.

With over twenty years of high-fashion hairstyling experience, Anthony is a veritable gold mine of tried-and-true hair care and styling tips and tricks. One of the questions he’s constantly asked: What’s the secret behind Adriana’s gorgeous tresses? “Adriana has a very healthy lifestyle. She trains, she exercises and has a healthy diet, which is crucial for healthy hair,” he explains. “But because her hair is constantly styled with heat tools, I make sure to give them an extra dose of nutrition with plant-based hair products like Phyto Phytoelixir Intense Nutrition Mask. They bring back moisture and shine to overly styled hair.”
