The Secret to Model Perfect Hair
Maria Borges “With my hair I am very specific: I trust the one and only hair guru Marcello Costa. I love to use Jonathan Products because is organic. We avoid relaxers and try alternatives to it. Before my blowout, I use Hydra-Curls leave in conditioner.”

Neelam Gil “Neil Moodie cuts my hair and before he cuts it he does this amazing treatment that strengthens my hair and keeps it glossy. I also wash my hair with the Windle and Moodie shampoo and conditioner, which is really nourishing for my hair seeing as it’s styled multiple times a day whilst shooting.”
