Ever wonder how Caitlyn Jennerâ€™s hair always looks so perfect? Itâ€™s all thanks to her trusty stylist, Courtney Nanson, who serves as her righthand glam woman while filming Jennerâ€™s docuseries â€œI Am Cait.â€
The pair met through mutual friends over a year ago and have been a team ever since, working together before Caitlynâ€™s Vanity Fair debut to discover looks they liked from magazine pages.
In an interview with Allure, Nanson revealed the Jennerâ€™s biggest preference surrounding her new look. If youâ€™ve ever taken even a glance at an episode of â€œKeeping Up With The Kardashians,â€ the answer probably wonâ€™t surprise you:
â€œCait has always loved long hair. Her whole life people were constantly telling her to cut her hair. Long hair is more than just a look; itâ€™s a feeling. I have put Caitâ€™s hair up, pulled it back on the sides, or into a high ponytail depending on what the situation calls for. But mainly her daily hairstyle is a fresh look, softly curving around her face with fullness. It will work for anything she might be doing that day and will last through the night.â€
After reading this, thoughts immediately flew back to of just how many times Jennerâ€™s family members mocked Jennerâ€™s long hair throughout the Kardashiansâ€™ on-television history â€” especially Kimâ€™s staunch insistence that a haircut happen before her wedding.
Now that we have greater context on what Jenner was going through at the time, what once seemed like good-natured digs are heart-twisting to think about. Now that Jenner is at last rocking her hair as long as she pleases, Nanson opts for a blowout most days:
â€œI love doing a big blowout on Caitâ€™s hair. I recommend working with three to four different sizes of round brushes. I start at the hairline working one inch sections around the entire headâ€”I use the smallest brush first and graduate up a size with each section. I concentrate on blowing the roots upward. I then finish with the biggest brush on the top of her head for maximum volume.
“I also set every section with Velcro rollers for a minimum of 30 minutes, taking out each roller and lightly back combing each section to build shape. I always finalize the look by adding volume to the ends with a smoothing brush.â€
Nanson also mentioned that Jenner is definitely down to try new hairstyles in the future â€” would it be a stretch to wish for a brief platinum blonde stint like Kimâ€™s?
