4 Bethenny Hairstyles: How to Get the Looks

Bethenny's hair stylist Stacey Lyn Weinstein breaks down four of Bethenny's favorite hair looks and how to recreate them yourself. Plus, find out Stacey's insider tricks and favorite products and tools.

The Look: Chic & Elegant

I wanted Bethenny to have luxurious looking hair, so I went old school and used electric rollers.

Electric rollers are best when used on clean and dry hair. Take 1-inch sections, spray the section with a wet hairspray to dampen, and then put in the electric rollers. Spray the set with a strong hold hairspray and let the rollers stay in for 30 minutes.

a) Trick: The wet spray will allow the hair to form the shape of a large round curl while drying on the roller.
b) Favorite products for this look: Paul Mitchell Sculpting Spray, Sebastian Shaper Hairspray


The Look: Trendy

On wet hair I applied a clear gloss so my basic blow dry would be shiny. I added a root lifter to give a slight lift at the root, so hair would not be flat. I dried hair 80% and then used a round wooden brush in large sections to achieve a smooth, basic blow dry.

To keep her trendy and stylish, I added hair extensions that were 2 shades lighter than her hair color. I placed a few throughout her hair so I could achieve an ombre highlight (dark to light). This look is a bit more edgy for Bethenny to wear on a regular basis.

a) Trick: Buy clip-on hair extensions (easy to use) one or two shades lighter, and only use a few pieces. You won't harm the hair with bleach and can create a new look in seconds.
b) Favorite products for this look: Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Oil, Oribe Shine Light Reflecting Spray, Oribe Root Lift

The Look: Waves

To achieve the best sexy waves, I always ask Bethenny to show up with day-old hair. Hair then has some texture already and will not be so clean, slippery and fresh. I spray hair with a hairspray to get the hair prepped and texturized. Add a dry shampoo spray at the roots for a clean boost.

I use my wand iron throughout the hair and alternate my section size. For instance, the first row, I take an inch section and then the next row I take a 2-inch section. This allows the hair to have more of a flow. I use a wand and not a regular clip iron to achieve waves because when using the wand you will not curl the ends. If you only have a regular iron, then you want to leave at least one inch from the bottom out of the iron so the ends are straighter and not curled. To achieve the prettiest waves, you want to remember to always wrap the hair away from the face on both sides.

a) Trick: Freshly washed hair and over-conditioned hair make it harder to get waves and won't hold or last. Work on dry, one day old hair.
B) Favorite product and tools to use : Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo, Sedu Blow Dryer, Sedu Wand Iron

The Look: Glamorous

This style is great when you have time to indulge and pull out all of your tools. I start with wet hair, apply a root lifter and gloss to the ends of the hair. I use a large round metal brush in big sections so I can achieve a full body blow dry. I use electric rollers on the top section to get a full voluminous look. I then section hair in horizontal rows and alternate two sizes of curling irons. After I wrap each section on the iron, I wrap the hair up in a barrel curl and clip at the root and let sit in a set. Once I am done, I spray hair and let set for at least 30 minutes.

A) Trick: I use a 1-inch and a 2-inch iron
B) Favorite products: Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Oil, Oribe Root Lift, Oribe Hair Spray
