For Danielle Campbell's character Davina, I like to use <a href='/index.php/products/view/2230/soft-small-dry-conditioner-spray-small/award-winners:true' target='_parent'>Soft Dry Conditioner Spray</a> because it gives a very soft texture with hold and not too much grit, so it's workable. I use a big-barrel iron for long, tousled curls and top it all off with <a href='/index.php/products/view/1884' target='_parent'>Shine Light Reflecting Spray </a>and <a href='/index.php/products/view/53/impermeable-anti-humidity-spray/' target='_parent'>Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray</a>. I switch between <a href='/index.php/products/view/2229/thick-small-dry-finishing-spray-small/' target='_parent'>Thick Dry Finishing Spray</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/2230/soft-small-dry-conditioner-spray-small/award-winners:true' target='_parent'>Soft Dry Conditioner Spray </a>depending on how long her look needs to last, which can sometimes be up to 12 hours.

I love using the <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> on Elisabeth Moss. I really like it for finishing, but I also use it to tease and backcomb a little bit. The hair is still brushable, but stays when I need it to stay. And everybody loves the smell.<br />

My personal favorite, which is quickly becoming a must-have for Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones and Adam Scott, is the <a href='/index.php/products/view/26/dry-texturizing-spray/' target='_parent'> Dry Texturizing Spray</a>. Everyone steals it from the product drawer!<br />
<br />
For Amy, every morning I use <a href='/index.php/products/view/59/royal-blowout-heat-styling-spray/award-winners:true' target='_parent'>Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray</a> on damp hair and blow it out, then I apply some Dry at the crown and roots. If we are shooting outside or the weather is bad, I use <a href='/index.php/products/view/53/impermeable-anti-humidity-spray/' target='_parent'>Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray</a>. Otherwise, I use <a href='/index.php/products/view/70/superfine-hair-spray/' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> for maintenance throughout the shooting day, which can get to be around 13 hours. <a href='/index.php/products/view/26/dry-texturizing-spray/' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a> really holds up, though. Sometimes the next-day hair is even sexier thanks to <a href='/index.php/products/view/26/dry-texturizing-spray/' target='_parent'>Dry</a>. I have Amy using all Oribe products. I love, love, love the <a href='/index.php/products/view/63' target='_parent'>Shampoo</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/44' target='_parent'>Conditioner for Beautiful Color</a>, and the <a href='/index.php/products/view/65' target='_parent'>Signature Moisture Masque</a> is pure luxury in a little black bottle!<br />
<br />
Adam Scott (one of the <a href='/index.php/products/view/26/dry-texturizing-spray/' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a> thieves) is a huge fan. <a href='/index.php/products/view/26/dry-texturizing-spray/' target='_parent'>Dry</a> is great for thickening men's hair, it fattens up strands and gives a cool lived-in look. <br />

For Jimmy, I like to use <a href='/index.php/products/view/51/gel-serum/' target='_parent'>Gel Sérum</a>. It’s got great shine and hold, not to mention it smells amazing—all of the products do! I mix that with <a href='/index.php/products/view/48' target='_parent'>Crème for Style</a> on his dry hair. Then, if I need a little more hold, I use <a href='/index.php/products/view/58' target='_parent'>Rough Luxury Molding Wax </a>and <a href='/index.php/products/view/1783/fiber-groom/' target='_parent'>Fiber Groom Elastic Texture Paste.</a> I also use <a href='/index.php/products/view/2226' target='_parent'>Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse</a> in his hair when wet and scrunch it in with my hands to get some body and wave. <br />

<br />
<a href='/index.php/products/view/68' target='_parent'>Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray</a> is amazing! I use it all the time with hot rollers, irons and all of my hot tools. Also, <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> is such an essential element in our hairstyles. It's soft, yet can really hold a style. It not only brushes out beautifully, but it smells amazing.
  • <b>Doreen VanTyne<br />
Department Head Hairstylist, 'Grimm'</b><br />
<br />
A few of my favorite products are <a href='/index.php/products/view/1916' target='_parent'>Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil</a>, <a href='/index.php/products/view/48' target='_parent'>Crème for Style</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/55' target='_parent'>Maximista Thickening Spray</a>. Maximista not only adds an amazing amount of volume without stickiness, but it also helps hold a curl. <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a> is great because it adds body and volume as well as a piecyness without leaving a product residue feeling in the hair. Filming 'Grimm' here in Portland, Oregon, <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry</a> really helps styles last all day. <a href='/index.php/products/view/57' target='_parent'>Rock Hard Gel</a> is great for men’s styling; we also use it to help hold the hair in place when we are applying hairpieces and wigs. And I love all the shampoos and conditioners. I make sure all our actors have the appropriate shampoo and conditioner for their hair type.

<br />
My favorite product that I use on both men and women in the cast is the <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a>. It's a must! The smell is fantastic, and it gives the perfect amount of texture without weighing the hair down.
  • <b>Theresa Marra Siliceo<br />

<br />
I love <a href='/index.php/products/view/58' target='_parent'>Rough Luxury Molding Wax</a>. I use the wax on every actor on our show if his hair is styled. I love it because it’s flexible, has good hold, shampoos out easily and grooms the hair beautifully. I work mostly with Merritt Wever on the show. Her hair is baby fine with a nice wave, so <a href='/index.php/products/view/55' target='_parent'>Maximista Thickening Spray</a> works nicely to plump her strands.
  • <b>Michael Anton Prockiw<br />

<br />
I love everything about Oribe products, from the packaging to the incredible fragrance that’s like no other. Courteney Cox loves the <a href='/index.php/products/view/72' target='_parent'>Supershine Moisturizing Cream</a>, <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/66' target='_parent'>Signature Shampoo</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/64' target='_parent'>Conditioner</a>. Signature Shampoo and Conditioner gives normal-to-overworked hair bounce and incredible sheen that makes the hair so much easier to work with and look great on camera. We spend long days on the set, and hair has to last 12-plus hours a day sometimes, so <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a>—a favorite of Christa Miller’s— works awesome for immediate plumping of flat hair. Our makeup artist even sprays some on a small brush and uses it on the actors’ eyebrows! Busy Philipps loves the <a href='/index.php/products/view/61' target='_parent'>Shampoo</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/46' target='_parent'>Conditioner for Magnificent Volume</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/1473' target='_parent'>Après Beach Wave & Shine Spray</a>, which works incredibly for a tousled look. I love <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> because it has great hold, and the actors love it because of the fragrance. Above all other hair sprays, <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/71' target='_parent'>Superfine Strong</a> are by far the best I've ever worked with. All the products are elegant, sophisticated and get the job done. They hold great style while leaving the hair touchable.

I use <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a> with almost every style, whether the hair is up or down. I love it to finish, as a base for teasing or to add volume. I often flip the hair over and give a good spray to keep natural movement on the top and a good base underneath. <a href='/index.php/products/view/2226' target='_parent'>Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse</a> is the best thing that has ever happened to my blow-dries, and <a href='/index.php/products/view/1884' target='_parent'>Shine Light Reflecting Spray</a> is great when I'm using a flat iron for a clean, sleek, touchable look. I used it on the first episode to marry the extensions I added into Orly's hair. <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> is a staple because it holds great but also brushes out without any residue. <a href='/index.php/products/view/48' target='_parent'>Crème for Style</a> is also handy as a finisher. I use it just on the ends if they need a little hydration or on flyaways at the part or hairline. It’s also great for men if they need just a little something without adding too much structure.

I work with Brooklyn Decker, Zoe Lister-Jones and the guys on the show. Once I cut the guys, I can let them loose on their own hair with the Oribe products to style however they’re comfortable. I have James Van Der Beek using <a href='/index.php/products/view/48' target='_parent'>Crème for Style</a>, Kevin Connolly using <a href='/index.php/products/view/51' target='_parent'>Gel Sérum</a> and Rick Donald using <a href='/index.php/products/view/58' target='_parent'>Rough Luxury Molding Wax</a>.<br />
<br />
For the girls, I always prep with <a href='/index.php/products/view/50' target='_parent'>Foundation Mist</a> for the conditioning factor and heat protection. Brooklyn has amazing hair—and lots of it. I start with the <a href='/index.php/products/view/50' target='_parent'>Foundation Mist</a> and layer <a href='/index.php/products/view/55' target='_parent'>Maximista Thickening Spray</a>. Even though Brooklyn already has lots of hair, each strand is very fine. This hair type looks great when freshly done, but the hairstyle has to hold up all day. Throughout the day, I give her a shot of <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a> to pump up her hair, and I finish with <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a>. I like <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine</a> because it’s a working spray. It’s great for soft hold and especially good for taming the flyaways that occur under the TV lighting. <br />
<br />
I prep Zoe with <a href='/index.php/products/view/50' target='_parent'>Foundation Mist</a>, and follow this with <a href='/index.php/products/view/2226' target='_parent'>Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse</a>. I dry the product in her hair completely before using my 1 ¼-inch curling iron to set her hair. I take fairly large sections, mist each one with <a href='/index.php/products/view/73' target='_parent'>Volumista Mist for Volume</a> for a touch more setting action, and pin up each curl so it can set. I then brush it out into a full, smooth wave. This is my foundation for anything I may choose to do with Zoe’s hair throughout an episode. We change her hair up a few times each episode. We use the same regimen for Majandra Delfino.

My absolute favorite product in any line is <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a>. I use this on Sarah Michelle Gellar for every look. I also use the <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> to keep Sarah's hair in place. Everybody loves the scent! I’ll mist her hair with <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine</a>, and then use a flat iron to achieve her waves, wrapping the hair and twisting the iron alternating directions as I go. When her hair is finished, I tousle the hair to loosen it up and spray <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry</a> into the lengths, finishing with a quick mist of <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine</a>. Sarah loves the shampoos and conditioners as well. For James Wolk, I love <a href='/index.php/products/view/1946' target='_parent'>Rough Luxury Soft Molding Paste</a>.

Zooey Deschanel is also a fan of <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/1784' target='_parent'>Supershine Light</a>. I set Zooey’s hair with <a href='/index.php/products/view/73' target='_parent'>Volumista Mist for Volume</a> every day. If her hair is wet, I’ll use <a href='/index.php/products/view/59' target='_parent'>Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray</a>. After the set cools, I brush through the curls and apply a small amount of <a href='/index.php/products/view/1784' target='_parent'>Supershine Light</a> as a finishing cream, then lightly spray with <a href='/index.php/products/view/70' target='_parent'>Superfine</a> to set the style.
