The Cannes Film Festival is my favorite celebrity event of the year, and yes, that includes all the award shows, even the Met Gala. This Year David Cronenberg Created His Latest Horror, Baz Luhrmann Revealed Elvis in the world, and Anne Hathaway is embracing an incredible style renaissance.
The actress is currently in Cannes to support armageddon time – a film in which she plays alongside Succession Jeremy Strong. He would have received a standing ovation, which I would like to extend to Hathaway and all of his glam crew. Her outfits have been amazing and her hair is giving off 60s glamour, and according to her hairstylist, that’s it thanks to Virtue’s Healing Oil.
You may have heard of this Virtue hair oil before; it was used on Nicola Peltz for her hair on her wedding day and Jennifer Garner has previously credited it with boosting her locks. Hairstylist Adir Abergel, who works with all three actresses, said Harper’s Bazaar that due to the large number of cameras in Cannes, every look has to be flawless from every angle. So obviously he reached his go-to Virtue Healing Oil for all Hathaway looks.
Abergel used the oil for three of them: the blowout with the long white dress, the Brigitte Bardot 60s-inspired hairstyle, and her center-slicked hair paired with a pink jumpsuit. Using healing oil as a final step, he warmed the oil in his hands and tousled the hair just before sending Hathaway down the red carpet.
The oil uses several ingredients that help in the hair healing process, as the name suggests. There’s Kalahari Melon Seed Oil, which protects hair from the harmful effects of the environment, and Tahitian Gardenia Flower Extract, a botanical extract that strengthens weak, damaged hair. Finally, Amaranthus caudatus seed extract improves color, moisture retention and shine, making it an excellent styling tool in addition to a healing repair tool.
All three of Hathaway’s looks lend glamor to the Riviera — which alone is enough to sell me, but it also reiterates that this oil seems to be in every celebrity’s repertoire. Because it’s Memorial Day weekend, there’s an added bonus: Oil is 20% off at Dermstore when you use code SUN. Head to the retailer to try this luxurious celebrity favorite hair oil for you.
