Walk into MECCA HQ, and you’ll be greeted by the intoxicating scent of Maison Crivelli fragrances, faces glowing with only the most nourishing serums (and perfectly blushed cheeks) – and hair that really shines.

From curly bobs and silky lengths to wavy wolf cuts and even the occasional mullet, MECCA HQ’s hair game is strong across the board.

So, we had to ask the owners of some of our greatest manes to reveal their ultimate hair secrets and the products they can’t get enough of. This is what they told us…

Reine’s chic curls

The tip: “Never brush out your curls.”

The product: Curl Charisma™ Chia + Flax Seed Coil Custard  

Hair, Fragrance and Body Brand Manager Reine is known for her immaculate curls, and her role means she’s constantly surrounded by products that are the cream of the haircare crop – namely, Briogeo’s Curl Charisma™ Chia + Flax Seed Coil Custard.

“I love that it defines the curls without weighing them down, so you get beautiful curls and volume,” she says, adding that between her love of a bleach blonde colour and bi-weekly swims in chlorine pools, her hair needs all the hydration it can get!

Fortunately, this curl-specific treatment leaves her hair feeling nourished long after she applies it.

Jasmine’s pop of cherry red

The tip: “Avoid using too much heat.”

The product: Dyson Supersonic Nural™ Intelligent Hair Dryer

Digital Campaign Coordinator Jasmine will proudly declare to anyone who will listen that redheads (even faux ones) have more fun: “I love having red hair… It's the best accessory.”

The secret to keeping her on-trend cherry red always looking freshly blown out, with such gloss, shine, and vibrancy? Avoiding heat – kind of. Jasmine knows how that sounds, but explains: “What I love about my Dyson Supersonic Nural is I don’t have to worry about the temperature, since it has a sensor which automatically adjusts the heat level to protect your scalp and hair.”

Jasmine also loves the precision airflow settings on this high-tech tool: “It makes blow drying really quick, which is a win for me and my thick hair,” she adds.

Lisa's iconic blonde crop

The tip: “It’s only hair. Have fun with it.”

The product: Full Dry Volume + Texture Spray 

The perfectly quaffed hair of M-POWER Director Lisa is everything she is; poised, professional and, put together – and totally unfazed by whirlwinds that come its way.

That’s partially down to her styling product of choice – Living Proof’s Full Dry Volume + Texture Spray: “I love that it makes my hair feel fuller, yet smoother,” Lisa informs us.

She adds that this nifty spray also helps her when styling with heat to achieve the height and hold she’s well known for!

Dave’s luscious locks

The tip: “Shampoo is for the roots. Conditioner is for the ends.”

The product: Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil  

The long hair atop Digital Customer Analytics Manager Dave’s head has been his favourite accessory for the 12 years he’s had it.

And with rumours swirling around MECCA HQ that he has his hair insured, à la Regina George, it felt crucial to know the essentials in his routine.

At the top of the list: Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil. The viral honey-infused oil - loved by everyone and their third cousin - is a staple in managing Dave's impressive lengths.

“[It] gives my hair this awesome shine and I love the glossy finish,” he says. Dave also praises the way it makes his hair feel: “It's amazingly hydrating, helps with dryness and frizz and makes my hair feel really smooth.”

Elena’s voluminous locks

The tip: “Keep it moisturised and nourished.”

The product: Bumble and bumble Curl 3-in-1 Conditioner 

The hair of our General Manager for Omnichannel Product and Experience, Elena, is coveted by all in MECCA HQ - she’s spent years perfecting her own version of the viral ‘Curly Girl Method’ (and it shows).

“My mum has the same hair, so she taught us how to handle it from a young age,” she tells us.

Bumble and bumble's Curl 3-in-1 Conditioner is a key component: “I love that [it] helps define my curls, provides (much needed) moisture and tames the frizz factor,” says Elena, adding that it doesn’t ever leave her hair feeling crunchy.

She also raves about the different ways she can use the conditioner: “It's great after a full wash, or for a quick curl refresh. Also, it smells amazing!”

Tara’s fabulously admired bob

The tip: “Dry shampoo, always.”

The product: Living Proof Perfect hair Day™ Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo

There’s a term all the kids are using to describe iconic bobs, and although we won’t repeat it here, we do believe that our Head of Content and Editorial Strategy Tara’s cut – a bob so chic and polished it would put Anna Wintour's to shame – deserves its place in that pantheon.

So, how does she maintain that enviable texture and body on short hair? “My hair type is super fine, but I have a lot of it – so it has a tendency to get oily really quickly,” Tara informs us, explaining that Living Proof’s Perfect hair Day™ Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo is the perfect start to her day (and a great way to touch up between washes).
