Kristin Ess Just Launched Travel Sizes of Her Cult Favorite Products at Target

When I said this is about to be my summer of travel, I really wasn’t kidding. All I want to do is lay on a beach towel, hear the sound of the waves in my ear and sip giant pina colada-filled pineapple. Is that too much to ask? My hair always takes a toll in the summer because I hate filling my bags with giant shampoo bottles. Hotel shampoo is a giant no-no for me, so I end up having to take whatever I can find in the travel section.

This summer, my hair doesn’t have to suffer because one of our favorite hair brands, Kristin Ess Hair, is launching travel sizes at Target. AH! Cue my biggest shriek since the comeback of Zoey 101 when Chase finally told Zoey he loved her.



Kristin Ess KNOWS hair. She’s been a hairstylist in LA for over twenty years and has worked on celebs such as Lauren Conrad, Lucy Hale, and Jenna Dewan. When her line first came to Target, I was ecstatic. I mean, it’s salon quality products at an inexpensive price, but I also knew they would be on-trend and the bottles would all look perfect on my vanity.

Kristin Ess’s The One Signature Shampoo and Conditioner has its own signature Zip-Up complex which helps strengthen and condition the hair naturally. It’s made with Kerabead microcapsules and natural ingredients like chia seeds, pea protein, and marine algae. It’s also made without sulfates making it perfect for anyone with color treated hair.

Oh, and at $3.99, the price is totally right. No need to worry about what you’re packing for your next vacay — it’s all at your favorite place, aka Target. GRAB ALL THE BOTTLES.






Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray

Spray your fresh curls with this for soft shine and separation that creates a perfectly tousled look. Unlike most wave sprays, this won't leave your hair crunchy or dry.


Style Reviving Dry Shampoo

A dry shampoo that looks (and smells) much more expensive than it actually is. Plus, it never leaves your roots white or cakey. Our team is wildly addicted to this and has been known to buy in bulk.


Strand Strengthening Reconstructive Moisture Mask

Add this mask to your self care routine STAT. The sulfate free formula will replenish moisture and soften your strands.


Rose Gold Temporary Tint

There's a reason this spray has sold out 10 times over. Get a touch of millennial pink in your hair. But beware: people will be stopping you on the streets for your secret.


Instant Lift Thickening Spray

We recommend this to all of the fine-haired girls wishing their locks had a little more oomph. It adds award show volume without weighing your hair down.


Weightless Shine Air Dry Crème

We hate blow drying our hair—especially in the summer. This is the secret to air drying your hair without looking like you put your finger in a socket. TOTAL GAME CHANGER.


Dry Finish Working Texture Spray

Craving the effortlessly messy undone look? Yeah us too. This is your secret weapon for adding texture. Hands down, it's the highest quality affordable texture spray out there. Plus, it smells like you just walked out of a salon.
