Caitlyn Jenner has only been a woman for a matter of months, but she has already mastered the art of the blowout, according to hairstylist Courtney Nanson.

The 65-year-old has only been known in her female form for the past two months, after transitioning from Olympic athlete Bruce.

But even though adapting to womanhood poses a number of huge new challenges, Caitlyn has managed to master one of the most difficult aspects of feminine styling.

“I must say, she does a pretty good job at styling her own hair!” hairstylist Courtney Nanson told Allure magazine.

Caitlyn is lucky enough to have Courtney on hand to help with her tresses on a daily basis.

Along with Courtney, Caitlyn’s glam squad also consists of make up artist Kip Zachary, with the pair working hard to help Caitlyn perfect the flawless look she is now famous for.

Each morning, the trio begin the day with a planning meeting, which Courtney admits is usually a hilarious process.

“Kip and I will discuss the type of look we are going to do that day and the fun begins,” Courtney said. “Between the three of us, we always have ‘glam gossip’ to start off the day. This includes strong coffee, reading any new articles out loud to each other and sharing makeup and hair tips. We joke around a lot so there’s a constant laughter coming from our direction.”

Caitlyn has been documenting the start of her new life as a woman in reality series I Am Cait. As well as focusing on her own journey, Caitlyn is using the programme to raise awareness of the difficulties many transgender people face while coming to terms with their true identities.

And Courtney thoroughly admires Caitlyn’s bravery.

“Cait has changed my life in a bigger way than I could have ever styled her hair,” she said. “We have spent a lot of time together and created a great friendship. To put it simply, I’m not the same person I was prior to meeting Cait — I am so much better.”
