Kerastase Elixir Ultime L'Huile Original Hair Oil, $50
The stylist: Gabrielle Buttitta, senior stylist at Bentley Hair and Beauty in Chicago
Why she likes it: "Glass hair — a blunt haircut that reflects glass-like sheen — is one the fall's biggest trends, and this hair oil helps you achieve it. It works on all hair types; just apply two to four drops throughout damp hair before styling or on dry hair post-styling for a glossy touch-up. The main ingredient, marula oil, provides weightless nourishment and ultimate shine."
Pulleez Sliding Ponytail Holders, $12.98
The stylist: Arsen Gurgov, celebrity hair stylist and founder of Arsen Gurgov Salon in New York City
Why he likes it: "These have a sliding toggle design that gently holds the hair in place without snagging, and can be removed by squeezing the toggle to quickly release the hair. They come with custom metal and crystal charms, so they glamorize the traditional ponytail without denting or damaging the hair. They're so easy to use, and I like that they're both functional and chic."
Virtue The One For All 6-in-1 Styler, $18-$36
Why she likes it:: "This has so many benefits — it acts as a heat protectant, adds shine, and hydrates, just to name a few. It's also a great product for all hair textures, since it helps smooth frizz on coarse hair, without being too heavy for fine textures."
Oribe Power Drops, $58
Why she likes it:: "These highly concentrated serums provide an intense dose of nutrients to treat the hair. There are three formulas — damage repair, hydration/anti-pollution, and color preservation. They're great options because of the highlighting, sun exposure, and constant ponytails that end-of-summer hair has seen; getting hair healthy is top priority for fall and winter. Add three to five drops to any of your leave-in or styling products. I personally like mixing them with a hair oil and applying to ends daily."
