If you track the hairdressers to the stars you may think you know the secrets of celebrity hairstylist David Babaii. The charming hair guru, who is as modest as he is celebrated, is more often than not, in the shadows of some of his famous clients.
Unlike some celebrity hairdressers who make sure to stay in the spotlight with their clients, David cares more about creating stunning hair than adding gold stars to his celebrity image.
Known for his famous beachy waves which has graced the heads of many International stars, David's hairstyles were recently front and center on NBC's The Voice.
Giving Voice To Spectacular Celebrity Hair - David Babaii Hairstyles On Christina Aguilera
Anyone watching The Voice is probably still shaking their heads at the spectacular soft pink hairstyle Christina rocked on the November 13th show when she performed a single off her new album with CeeLo Green.
All eyes were on her amazing fashions, make-up and of course the hair which was created for her by David. She look spectacular and of course her voice was off the charts.
He explained his hairstyle on Christina's website. He said "Tonight we take you on a journey that everyone fantasizes about. For me as a hairstylist the hair must tell a story and create a spell, Christina is the perfect muse as she allows me to think out of the box. Her energy and passion excites my creative juices to the point that the hair on my arms stand up."
He continued "To create this explosion of texture and volume I used my own David Babaii Miracle Volume (from his hair care line) and IT&LY HAIRFASHION’S Pure Definition Hair Spray. With long hours and hot lights I stand back and say, “Using great products that really work, makes all the difference”.

Jennifer Lawrence 2012 Hunger Games Promo Tour

David traveled with her on the tour and created her stunning hairstyles for each stop. He focused on creating modern day Brigitte Bardot inspired looks for the beautiful young actress.
Great Love For Animals
David also has a great love for all animals which he has shared with me in past interviews.
When he was testing products for his own hair care line he admitted in an LA Times blog article, to testing the shampoos, conditioners, sprays and thickeners on his A-list clientele like Angie, Kate, Sarah Jessica and Uma, but never,ever on animals.
He was quoted confessing "I tested them on everyone in the past few years, I just didn't tell them."
Well, except at one point he did have to fess up. During the time he was testing his early-stage products his over zealousness resulted in green, broken off tresses on the lovely blonde head of longtime client Kate Hudson.
Green Hair And Broken Off Strands Of Kate Hudson
"I was always testing on Kate before an awards show or a big premiere," David recalls. "She would say, 'What are you doing now?"
"Remember when she hacked off her own bangs? That's because they were falling off," David noted. He was on his way to cut them for her, got stuck in traffic, and when he got there, she'd done it herself. "Not a bad job either, she even cuts [her son] Ryder's hair sometimes."

Although his past hair care line, The David Babaii for WildAid line (supporting WildAid) was sold to another company, it was initially created to benefit the wild animals. David is outspoken about the cause which Angelina initially made him aware of.
David told the media "She introduced me to WildAid and talked about the animals she sponsored and her support for them. She's such a lovely lady and human being. She's the whole package."
His new hair care line is scheduled to be launched in the US in the Spring of 2013. With his new line, 100% of the profist will go to preserve no-kill animal shelters around the world!
