Jennifer Garner Styled Her Own Hair for the First Time in 20 Years With This $32 Styling Product

Tara Gonzalez

A couple days ago, Jennifer Garner asked her hair stylist Adir Abergel if she was a pig. After calling on him for a virtual styling session ten minutes before she was supposed to go on air (virtually) with Jimmy Fallon, Garner realized in the 20 years they’ve worked together, she had never once asked him how he did what he does. “What kind of pig am I?” she asked after trying to figure out what exactly a hair diffuser looked like.

Spoiler: She found the hair diffuser and managed to get her signature beachy waves right in time. Luckily for all of us, Garner filmed the entire process for her Instagram and, in turn, made us feel better about ourselves. Sure, we’re still not Jennifer Garner. That kinda sucks. But we definitely feel less bad about not knowing how to make our hair look like it hasn’t been locked inside of a house for over two months. Apparently Garner didn’t either until she used one of her lifelines and called up Abergel. Turns out Virtue Labs, the hair product line he is an ambassador for, is all you really need. Hair diffusers and paper towels also help though.

And that’s how Garner did her own hair for the first time in her life. The process only took 10 minutes and even Abergel was shocked by how amazing it looked. Abergel also does Reese Witherspoon’s hair and for her recent Vanity Fair cover, Witherspoon sported a similar look to Garner’s. On Instagram, the stylist uploaded a photo of the cover writing, “Her hair is so shiny and beautiful. I love the length and the slight wave...I wondered who did that hair? Well after some research I realized it was me.” The look was not done over FaceTime, but still involved the same Virtue Labs products.

Since hair salon visits are still in the distant future, it’s time to face the reality that we’ll have to keep taming our own bedheads for now. Not all of us have famous hair stylists to call on, but thankfully Garner has shared her stylists’s wisdom with all of us. She also shared some wisdom of her own, by suggesting saving the pieces of paper towels used for scrunching for later. Unlike with any kind of paper right now, thankfully there’s no shortage of Virtue Labs, although products have noticeably started selling out since Garner’s video.
