It was once revealed that he and his son Christian go through 15 cans of hairspray a week to maintain their perfectly coiffed hair.

And Richard Wilkins showed off his manicured mane at an event to celebrate Christian’s new job as Pantene’s first male ambassador.

The Today Extra host was joined by his beloved girlfriend Nicola Day, who also had her blonde locks expertly blow-dried for the event.

Good hair day! Richard Wilkins and his new girlfriend Nicola Day sported perfectly coiffed hairstyle as they celebrate the Today Extra host’s son Christian being the new face of Pantene at a dinner at Nobu on Thursday evening

Ahead of the event Richard’s son Christian, 26, said he feared he’d lose his job as Pantene’s first male ambassador in Australia due to a recent hair mishap.

Christian was preparing to shave his head after heavily bleaching it for an acting role last year when Pantene got in touch.

Christian debuted his bleached white hair and eyebrows in August, while filming Stan Original series Eden in Byron Bay.

‘I was halfway through filming Eden when my hair was white and I admittedly was really sad because I thought that I wouldn’t be able to do it [work with Pantene],’ he told Daily Mail Australia.

‘I just assumed having my hair literally bleached to white that I would have to shave my head. I thought there was no coming back from that,’ he added. 

Christian explained: ‘My hair was so brittle and dry, it felt dead, and it had absolutely no life or anything to it, and it felt like straw! I assumed that was the end of that hair.’

But when he raised his concerns with Pantene, they decided to use his hair journey as the perfect way to test their new Miracle Treatments collection.

He used the product on his brittle, bleached hair and was amazed with the results. 

‘It worked! It looks gorgeous. I was so amazed that these three small treatments, realistically, were able to save my hair,’ Christian boasted.

Speaking of his famous father, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant said: ‘He understands this ambassadorship because I think hair is large identifier with out family, and with so many people.’ 

‘He is really proud to see how I’ve embraced that, and I guess I am following in his hair footsteps,’ he laughed.

While Christian is known for his long straight hair, his father is famous for his bouffant ‘do – a throwback to his days as a pop star.

Meanwhile, the model said it was ‘an absolute dream come true’ and ‘pinch-me moment’ to be announced as Pantene’s first male ambassador in January. 

Christian, who came out as gay in 2018, never shies away from bold colours, textures and patterns, pushing the envelope in terms of both style and gender stereotypes.

He also often wears gender-defying skirts and frocks.

‘People used to call me a girl all the time because I was a gay guy who was very flamboyant, and did dance and singing,’ he said in 2020.
