Clubhouse Beauty Secrets – Discover Professional Hair Care Tips From Celebrity Hairstylist Sam McKnight
Clubhouse, the new invitation-only audio app, has recently become one of the most popular places to hang out (virtually, of course). With many celebrities and global industry leaders using the app, it was quickly recognized as “the place to be” right now. If you have not yet registered or are still on the waiting list for Flag, I will explain a little bit how this application works.
What is the Clubhouse app?
Similar to a live radio show with host (s) and guest speakers, Flag allows listeners around the world to listen to the live broadcast of every show. Plus (and here’s the fun part!), It allows audience members to ask questions and literally participate in the conversation. This means you have the ability to ask and say hello to your favorite celebrities or industry icons, in real time!
Just last week, I was “hanging out” in discussion forums with the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg, bestselling author Marie Forleo, “The shark” Daymond john, Jeanine Lobell (Founder of Stila Cosmetics), and more.
Unlike other social media networks (which flood our feeds with images or videos), Clubhouse acts differently. Each person has their profile picture with their bio attached. I tend to think of the Clubhouse as “LinkedIn meets live radio”. While it can be used for leisure and recreation, it also provides great opportunities for business networking and brand building. The ability to connect and join conversations in real time is incredibly powerful, especially given our virtual world these days. It’s a great way to learn expert advice, tap into people’s vast knowledge and experience, and connect with like-minded people.
The best part is that you can find all types of Clubhouse cats anytime. From beauty, fashion and wellness to business, technology and more – there are groups and discussions on all types of topics. This means that you can spend time walking in and out of “rooms” to hear (or participate in) conversations on a variety of interesting topics.
Beauty secrets of the clubhouse
As an avid beauty lover, I particularly enjoy listening to and learning from the beauty experts at Clubhouse. During a recent chat titled “The Beauty Pioneers” (hosted by The Beauty Club, a popular group on the app), a celebrity hairstylist Sam McKnight discussed her backstage work experience at Fashion Week, celebrity hairstyling and the launch of her hairstyle product line, Hair by Sam McKnight. Her hairstyling brand is sold online at retailers like Net-A-Porter, Selfridges and Violet Gray.
As shared on his website, “Celebrated Session Barber, Sam McKnight, is the barber to all barbers. He boasts a legendary career spanning more than four decades including runway shows, editorials and advertising campaigns for fashion houses such as Chanel, Fendi, Balmain, Burberry and Tom Ford. A regular contributor both British and international Vogues, W, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, username, and Like, he has over 100 blankets to his British name Vogue alone. McKnight has collaborated with some of the world’s most prominent photographers including Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Testino and Nick Knight. A longtime stylist for the late Princess Diana, McKnight was the creative behind her iconic short, slicked back hairstyle in the now famous 1990 Demarchelier shoot for British Vogue, a partnership that led him to become her personal hairstylist for seven years. “
Since her product line mainly includes dry shampoo, texturizing sprays, and hairspray, I asked her to share her pro tips on how to take care of our hair. I preceded my question by stating that while we all love using these products (for convenience), research shows that too much hair products on our scalp can cause clogged pores, which leads to unhealthy hair. . So how do we best use these styling products while taking care of our hair? Here’s what he had to say …
Professional hair care tips from celebrity hairstylist Sam McKnight
- Only use dry shampoo occasionally as a quick fix.
- Try to wash the dry shampoo from your hair as soon as possible after using it.
- Dry shampoo should do not be used daily or too regularly, as this can clog the pores of the scalp.
- Instead of spraying dry shampoo directly on your roots, spray it on a brush first (eg boar bristle brush).
- Use scalp stimulating products, such as clarifying shampoo and scalp tonic (once a week).
- These products can help prevent buildup and cleanse the scalp of product residue.
- Sam recommends a brand called Act + Acre, which creates award-winning scalp detox treatments.
Join the Beauty Club on Clubhouse
If you are on Clubhouse and enjoy learning beauty tips and tricks, I encourage you to join The Beauty Club group. Founded by Michela wariebe (makeup artist and beauty educator), this active group of over 6,000 beauty professionals and enthusiasts regularly hosts Clubhouse chat rooms featuring beauty experts, beauty industry leaders and founders of beauty brands. This is a great resource whether you are in the beauty industry, aspire to be, or just love to uncover professional secrets (on makeup, skin care, hair care, etc.) .
Michela says: “I started the Beauty Club because, in a space saturated with technology and VC, I felt that beauty also deserved its space. We’re an industry that generates billions of dollars in revenue around the world, so in a space that speaks of impact, it made sense that beauty was included.
The Beauty Club hosts weekly chat rooms including:
- Beauty Clubhouse: Beauty Townhall for All (Sunday, 3 p.m. EST)
- Morning Beauty Cat (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. EST)
