July 30, 2015

To say the weather in Miami was misbehaving, is to say nothing at all. Sure it was hot, but I can honestly tell you, combined with 100% humidity the blazing heat is really something. It is precisely the kind of wether that makes you want to abandon everything in favor of taking a nice long soak in the pool and staying there till sundown. But I had people to meet and shows to attend since as I have previously mentioned, I partnered with TRESemmé to attend Miami Swim Week this year, so  spending most of my time underwater was not an option:)

As part of this collaboration, I got my hair styled daily and I can't say enough about what a wonderful experience it was and how much I appreciate TRESemmé's Perfectly un(Done) line of products! You see, from the moment I stepped off the plane, I had what I would consider pretty legitimate concerns about my hair staying in tact given the weather in Miami. Partially, because my make-up melted off my face within 5 minutes of walking out of the airport and my hair did exactly what it  always does in extreme humidity ( a half curly, half straight, frizzy mess which can be described best as a homage to a bird's nest ) but mainly because my poker-straight fine hair doesn't hold hairstyles very well in perfect weather, let alone in 100% humidity:) Luckily, I was wrong! I was very, very, wrong! Not only did my hair behave ( no frizzy mess ), the hairstyles held up beautifully throughout the day and much to my delight looked just as well hours after I got them done! And so, since I am sure most of you are just as committed to fighting frizz as I am and have an appreciation for long-lasting voluminous hairstyles, I thought I take this opportunity to talk about exactly what my TRESemmé stylist did and which products he used on me.

For Mara Hoffman presentation, I chose to go with a fun little cobalt blue number, so I wanted a hair-style that would be equally fun, flirty and girly. To complement this look, we decided to go with voluminous, textured waves with straight ends.

1. Once again, I started by washing my hair with TRESemmé Perfectly un(Done) Shampoo followed with TRESemmé Perfectly un(Done) Conditioner.
2. To add body to my hair, the stylists applied about 3 pumps of TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creation Sea Foam to damp hair, distributed evenly throughout the entire head and blowdried my hair straight.
3. Next, the stylists curled medium-sized sections with a flat iron to create bouncy, textured waves rather than ringlets.
4. Once my hair was curled, the stylist applied a few spritzes of TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray and scrunched the waves for a sexy, tousled texture.
5. He finished the look with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hold Hairspray.

I chose a beautiful lace two-piece set to wear to MIKOH presentation. Since the outfit had a slight romantic reference, I wanted a hair-style that would complement this look. I also wanted something a little more effortless and easy to help downplay the dressiness of the ensemble. And so, we decided to go with one of my favorite hairstyle ever: soft, beachy waves! To re-create this look, you can repeat steps 1 & 2 from the style above, but use a large­-barrel curling iron to create soft waves instead of the flat iron and finish with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hold Hairspray for all­-day hold.

On my last day in Miami, we wanted to create an effortlessly tousled look to complement my sheer, embroidered floor-length dress, and I think the mega voluminous waves ended up working absolutely perfectly! Super simple to do, you can just repeat steps 1-3 & 5, then apply a few spritzes of TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Perfecting Gelee to create definition while taming the frizz and flyways.

P.S. If you have questions about any of the hairstyles or products, shoot me an email any time, I'll be happy to answer! :)
