Fashion Week: TRESemmé for Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2012

It’s Fashion Week, which means in addition to checking out the fashion forecast for Fall 2012, we’re mining for the beauty and hair trends coming our way later this year. TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu created an undone side bun for Rebecca Minkoff’s Fall 2012 runway show. To complement the mix of leather, fur, sequins and knits on the runway, Jeanie went with a chic, textured yet relaxed low bun to bring femininity to the strong silhouettes in the collection.

Step-by-step:

1.    Create a deep side part and prep damp hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray.  Apply throughout hair from roots to ends

2.    Diffuse hair on high heat

3.    Repeat steps 1 & 2 – apply TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray from roots to ends and diffuse hair.  Be sure to layer the product to create a natural, rough texture

4.    Apply a dime size amount of TRESemmé Smooth & Silky Anti-Frizz Secret Crème throughout hair to give definition

5.    Gather hair into a loose pony on one side, fastening elastic midway down the pony, leaving the heavier side of the face-framing part loose and undone

6.    Twist hair into a messy side bun, fastening with hair pins as you go

7.    Loosely gather pieces from the heavier side of the part and pin into bun

8.    To finish, lightly spritz with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray

What do you think? I think this one will work nicely off the runway!

*Also, it doesn’t feel right not to mention our sadness about the death of Whitney Houston. All of us at Product Girl have our own memories growing up listening to her beautiful voice. RIP Whitney.

TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TRESemmé for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’ve come to find myself relying on dry shampoos more and more lately. It saves me so much time in the morning AND I’m prolonging the life of the reddish brown locks I’m loving so much. I’m always on the hunt for an affordable dry shampoo that will refresh my hair and this time I tried TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo.

I tried this product when it was first released and was only available in one variety. Now the full line includes a Strengthening Dry Shampoo with B12 vitamins and keratin to help strengthen hair, a Volumizing Dry Shampoo with mineral clay and citrus to remove oil while adding volume, a Smoothing Dry Shampoo that ensures your smooth look lasts and a Moisturizing Waterless Foam Shampoo with Witch Hazel, Citrus, and Aloe Vera that refreshes and moisturizes your hair. TRESemmé has some tips that make a difference in how the product works for you:

  • Do shake vigorously before use and in between spray bursts for best results.
  • Do lift sections of dry hair and spray lightly at roots.
  • Do spray in short bursts, holding 8-12 inches from head.
  • Don’t spray it like hair spray (all over and continuously).
  • Do leave in for 1-2 minutes.
  • Do use fingertips or a brush to distribute product evenly.
  • If clogging occurs, remove nozzle and rinse the nozzle under warm water, then reattach.

Check out this video from YouTube Guru Elle Fowler. She teamed up with TRESemmé and created a tutorial to teach people how to use TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo properly, making this one of her Top Hair Products for School.

Ten or Less: TRESemme Climate Protection Finishing Spray

Don’t call this one a hairspray, because TRESemme’s Climate Protection Finishing Spray is so much more than that. Part of TRESemme’s 4-piece Climate Protection line to keep your tresses looking good despite the usual destructive elements of static, wind and/or humidity, the Finishing Spray is like the grand finale to any hairdo. Up, down, straight, curly — this product will set you on your merry way for the day, especially one with weather woes.

The secret to this spray’s success is TRESemme’s Climate Control Complex, a blend of Kertain and UV blockers, that build a residue-free barrier between your hair and the effects of harmful elements. We’ve been having our share of nasty weather in Chicago this month and I’ve been impressed with how my hair has held up throughout the day when using this. I spray it all over, let it dry before touching and then do a final fluff with my fingers. It dries completely and feels weightless.

And in usual TRESemme fashion, I was able to snag a ginormous can of this from Target for about $3. I’d happily pay the same amount for a tiny version for travel! Because now, I need this product in my daily routine no matter where I am.
