What Jonathan Van Ness Can’t Live Without

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness — who is working with Movember and Planters this month to promote men’s health awareness — about the hair clips, litter box, and iPhone holder he can’t live without.

I’ll play with my Nintendo Switch at home with certain friends, but for the most part, I use it when I’m traveling and when I’m on a plane. I mostly stick to Mario Brothers and Mario Kart because that’s what I played as a kid. I don’t play Zelda so much. But I should, oh my gosh, I should try. I just hate learning new games. New ones stress me out.

My really good friend and makeup artist started using one of these easels for their iPhone and I was like, “oh my gosh, that’s so silly.” And then, within a day, I was like, “I need one.” It’s the most amazing thing. It frees up your hands so you don’t have to hold your phone so much. If I’m eating at the table, like at home eating, I’ll put my phone on it while I’m reading the news so I can eat and use both hands.

I love these. After you blow-dry your hair or after you do your style, you kind of smooth your little flyaways down and use these clips to keep your hair in place until right before you walk out of the door. They’re so convenient.

I just adore the Dyson blow dryer. It doesn’t overheat your hair, and it’s so compact and light. She’s also really durable and dries your hair a lot quicker than other hair dryers.
