When my hair is a bit shorter, as in bob shorter, I prefer to wear it straight, but as my hair starts to grow in length I always find myself gravitating towards curlier looks. This is why I was surprised when TRESemmé asked me to pick my favourite NYFW trend style, and recreate it for y’all, and I immediately picked the dead straight, sleek style. The smooth evening blow out was perfected by the TRESemmé team at NYFW SS17 for all the models walking the Oscar De La Renta show. This style is easy to create, with minimal tools and only a few affordable TRESemmé products. Watch my video down below for all the steps to recreate this easy, Summer look.
Step one: Start with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo, followed by the Keratin Smooth Conditioner for a smooth starting base. (both are currently R59.95 at Clicks)
Step two: Apply TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Hair Maximiser from root to tip, applying in small sections, and using your fingers to work in the product. (currently R51.95 at Clicks)
Step three: Create a centre part and blow dry in small sections with a round bristle brush, working from the nape of the neck up to the forehead – make sure you angle the air from the blow dryer in the opposite direction towards your hair for a smooth finish.
Step four: After you finish each section curl the hair around your fingers and pin in place with a bobby pin. Allow all the sections to cool completely before releasing.
Step five: Spray a soft bristle brush with the TRESemmé Firm Hold Hairspray and brush through your hair to tame any flyaways. Tuck your hair behind your ears and allow the hair to fall behind your shoulders. (currently R25.95 for 100ml at Clicks)
