Head turner Isabela Rangel Grutman is an international model, global philanthropist, style influencer, brand builder, design advisor, and a full-time mother but — spoiler alert— that isn’t all. She has now joined IGK Hair Care as a partner. (Congrats, lady!)
While wearing many hats (literally outside and figuratively every day), we had to know how she styles her hair and (of course) her go-to product for keeping it looking so modelesque… even in the humidity of Miami, where she’s based. “I’m all about the health of my hair, so I love applying IGK Best Life 100% Plant-Powered Nourishing Hair Oil every day, in every look, to keep my hair nourished and shiny,” she says. We’re convinced it’s magic in a bottle.
Read on for three of her fool-proof hairstyles using the same hair oil, for the beach, daytime events and when she’s feeling playful.
“I love the texture of beachy hair, so when I’m on the beach I love to do one side braid and leave it loose,” says Grutman. “If I’m not by the beach and I want to achieve the same look and texture in my hair, I use Beach Club Volumizing Texture Spray all over and I add Best Life 100% Plant-Powered Nourishing Hair Oil to the ends. If you feel stylish that day, put on a scarf or a hat for a cool look.”
Time commitment: 1 minute.
Products needed: IGK Best Life 100% Plant-Powered Nourishing Hair Oil and IGK Beach Volumizing Texture Spray Club, Scarf or Hat (optional)
If you don’t already have the beachy hair texture, spray Beach Club Volumizing Texture Spray through your hair. After, add two pumps of Best Life 100% Plant-Powered Nourishing Hair Oil in your hands and apply to your hair, starting with the ends, and after through it all.
Put your whole hair to one side and do a three-piece braid starting loose and tightening it through all the way to the bottom.
Step 3 (optional)
Add a hair scarf or a hat.
“I love this look for daytime events or even for a cute brunch and casual dinner with friends,” says Grutman.
Time commitment: 20 minutes.
Start with dry hair. Separate your hair in two, top and bottom, and start with the bottom pieces. Use the mermaid curling iron, piece by piece, marking it from top to bottom of pieces. After finishing the separated bottom pieces, do the top ones finish up all of the hair.
Add a finishing spray like 1-800-Hold-Me No-Crunch Flexible Hold Hairspray all around the hair, brushing it out with your fingers for a natural look.
Add Best Life 100% Plant-Powered Nourishing Hair Oil for healthy ends.
“I love this look when I feel playful and want to have a young, fresh look,” says Grutman. “At the same time, I’m nourishing my hair and making it super healthy.”
Time commitment: 5 minutes.
Products needed: Best Life 100% Plant-Powered Nourishing Hair Oil and two hair ties.
Apply Best Life 100% Plant-Powered Nourishing Hair Oil all over the hair, especially in the ends.
Separate your hair in two, keeping it towards the back.
Braid both sides, keeping the braids in the back and place the hair ties in each of the ends.
