• Patti Scialfa onstage
  • Patti and husband Bruce Springsteen make music together

Rockin' Redhead

Traveling to different cities each week and rocking out onstage almost nightly has the potential to wreak havoc on the hair, but singer, guitarist and music royalty Patti Scialfa (wife of Bruce Springsteen) keeps her locks looking healthy and vibrant with a little help from Oribe Hair Care.

“Patti uses Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color exclusively to keep her hair color in top form while she’s on tour with Bruce,” says her colorist, Anthony Palermo, who enhances the musician’s naturally red hair with copper and strawberry tones to make it pop onstage. “Every few visits, we add some highlights around her face to give what she calls ‘a more rock ‘n roll look.’” Palermo, color director and co-owner of Anthony Leonard Salon in Manhattan, uses a secret formula of Wella Color Charm shades to create Scialfa’s desired red color, which is bright yet natural-looking. “Bruce loves the way her hair looks while she’s performing,” Palermo says.

And what about the always well-groomed Springsteen, who famously (and hilariously) covered Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” with Jimmy Fallon back in 2010? According to Palermo, he’s using Signature Shampoo and Conditioner to keep his own mane in check.
