Zara’s beauty products are excellent—not just because they’re affordable, but also because they’re designed by the world’s leading authorities in the space. Some of the brand’s fragrances have been designed in collaboration with powerhouses Puig and perfumer Jérôme Epinette. When the brand launched over 130 shades of makeup in 2021, it tapped legendary makeup artist Diane Kendal to help design the collection. Now, the brand has joined forces with none other than hairstylist Guido Palau—the mastermind behind runway hair looks at Marc Jacobs, Versace, and Fendi, among so many others—for the launch of Zara Hair. Though the full suite of Zara Hair products won’t be available until 2024, the brand just dropped a “four-piece amuse-bouche” called “Glitter in Gold” that is perfect for the holiday season.
Out today, Glitter in Gold features two styling products that Palau calls “makeup for your hair,” along with two accessories. The first styler, Give Me Gold gel, is perfect for all of your slicked-back party looks. The lightweight, buildable formula has a subtle sheen to enhance your hair’s natural luster, but can be slathered on for a more dramatic effect. The second styler is pure fun in the form of Give Me Glitter hair spray, which adds the most subtle dusting of shimmer. “You can update your hair and make it look fun just for a night,” Palau says.
An Instagrammable gold comb and 12 oversize gold bobby pins complete the collection, sold as a set for $50.
To help model the products, Palau tapped his friend Kaia Gerber for a series of videos. “I love Kaia. She represents Zara Hair for me, both relatable and aspirational. She wants to have fun with her hair,” he says. “I love the way she is kind of boyish as well as super feminine at the same time.”
You can shop the Glitter in Gold collection at Zara stores and online right now, and keep your eyes out for more information on the rest of Palau’s must-have Zara Hair styling products when they launch in 2024.
