Clayton Hawkins is the wig-wearing, vintage hot tool-collecting hairstylist to Olivia Rodrigo, Dove Cameron and Emily in Paris’ Ashley Park. Today, we’re diving deep into his tickle trunk, as Clayton decodes the hottest hair trends of 2022, so far. The “shullett,” bottleneck bangs, Y2K baby braids – we’re covering it all, honey. We find out the exact products in the Hollywood hairstylist’s hair kit, from the essential brushes to the $6 dry shampoo and the hot tools – 70s, 90s and new – that he thinks are definitely worth the investment.

But first, we discuss the recent Olaplex headlines that prompted some TikTok users to start binning their hair holy grails. Do they really cause infertility? Jill’s not throwing away her bottle yet, guys! We reached out to the brand for their official statement. (To understand the science behind the study that led to banning of the ingredient in the EU and why testing on rats is different from testing on humans, we recommend watching Dr. Michelle Wong aka @labmuffinbeautyscience's breakdown of this topic.)
