Kelly Bensimon on Her Coif: 'Everyone is Obsessed With My Hair'

The Real Housewives of New York City might be used to their castmate Kelly Bensimon’s competitive spirit, but when it comes to a real rivalry, the reality star says that the competition is all in the hair. “Everyone is obsessed with my hair,” she told PEOPLE at a polo match to benefit Nacho Figueras’s Work to Ride Charity at the Bridgehampton Polo Club on Sunday. “They always want to touch it.” Kelly’s enviable tresses come at the experienced hands of her longtime colorist Kathleen Flynn Hui and stylist Bradley Irion, who was on hand at the Avantair-sponsored event to explain how he gives Kelly her chic curl and color. “We worked with her natural texture,” Irion said. “And then we just added to the beauty. We bumped up her base with a dark blonde, light brown, and then we hand painted highlights into the hair. We glaze that with a warm honey tone. It’s a natural gloss that bumps up the shine and enriches the highlights, so everything kind of blends together.” And Kelly can’t praise Irion’s work enough: “When I met Bradley, he said, your hair has to be natural. People are constantly coming up to me and touching my hair. That’s what Bradley gave me. . . this touchable, gorgeous hair that’s real,” she said. And there’s another Bensimon that Irion has lent his magic touch to, according to Kelly. “He even cuts my dog’s hair.” –Jeffrey Slonim

NOTHING SPECIAL ABOUT HER HAIR…I HAVE SEEN MUCH BETTER. IT DOES MAKE HER FACE LOOK LONG. SHE ISNT EVEN THAT PRETTY. I THINK SHE BORROWED HER TEETH FROM ONE OF HER HORSE BUDDIES…
COME INTO THE 21ST CENTURY KELLY…EVERYTIME I SEE YOU I EXPECT YOU TO BREAK OUT DISCO DANCING.

No Kelly, they really aren’t obsessed w/ your hair or anything about you!

As much as I think Kelly is “interesting” , I will give her and her colorist credit for having awesome hair !!!!!!!!! She is right and I wish I could achieve the same color look. Only thought or concern is how costly it may be, but keep up the great work. Ignore the negative comments as they are just jealous…………

FJC on

It’s so “1979″ as she kept saying this season..and poor thing..she should really concentrate on whatever issues she has…her dingy hair is the LAST thing she should be concerned with!!

Jeanne on

I’m not. I could care less.

Jules on

I’d rather touch Bethenny’s hair!
