Celebrity Stylist David Malo at Capelli Hair Salon in Repulse Bay has helped celebs such as Mariah Carey and Khloe Kardashian achieve their iconic locks. Want gorgeous hair like theirs? He gives us five tips to ease the frizz and keep our hair looking luscious in sticky Hong Kong summers.

Keratin treatments: With the sole purpose to de-frizz, there are now many different brands you can use for Keratin treatments. Also known as a semi-permanent smoothing treatment, it allows you to still have bounce and wear curls, just without the frizz. The results can last up to 12 weeks, so it's perfect if you only want to get through the worst of the heat. It’s also safe with color.

Hair products: It's definitely a good start to use the right shampoo and conditioner and styling products. Jennifer Aniston's very own line, Living Proof, is the ultimate home care brand, with a range simply called “Anti frizz.” These products are designed to hydrate your hair and they also contain humidity blockers making your hair shine for longer. Very popular this summer.

Styling tools: All year round, it's always good to utilize styling tools such as straightening stylers, or curling tongs to complete or add variations to your look. But in summer, they also help maintain smoothness for a longer time.

Fresh cuts: Summer is also a good time if you've been thinking about a change, to go for something shorter. Get that heavy hair off your neck and opt for a shorter look. Mid length bobs that have a softer edge with a little more texture are also a popular summer haircut.

Less frequent washes: It's a good idea if you can, to avoid washing your hair daily. This will just allow the natural oils to soften out and control frizz.
