Smith was on set this week creating a fresh look for an upcoming issue and we were so impressed with her "set up" that we asked her to take us on a tour.

Her musts:

Hot Tools irons (curling and flat), blow dryer and Curlbar set

Assorted brushes including Denman and Nicholas French

Styling liquids: BIOLAGE R.A.W.

Hairtalk extensions

To see what else she keeps in her kit (including clips, pins and forms), join her on this short video tour:
