A Futuristic Sleek Style Debuts at Sally La Pointe S/S 18 NYFW Show
Try this super sleek style at home in under five minutes.
One of the most common themes we’ve seen at New York Fashion Week this season is seeing stylists embracing the models’ natural texture. At Sally La Pointe’s Spring/Summer 2018 show, Holli Smith, TRESemmé NYFW stylist, did just the opposite. She created a futuristic sleek style using lots of shine and silver hair accessories. This sleek style makes a big statement on the runway while still remaining a totally wearable everyday style.
“We decided to put these silver bobby pins on each side so that there’s some sort of finished detail,” Smith says. “We’re using some of the shine serum in the hair to sort of lay it down and create a glossy, not-so-wet look. Every model has her own length so there’s a little bit of individuality with that. We’re finishing with the bobby pins by laying our hands on top and securing the pins. There’s something kind of futuristic about it. It’s a pretty simple detail but it makes this style completely achievable at home.”
“Use a product that feels like a conditioner but is really a styling product, something that has a hand lotion feel to it,” Smith advises. “You can seal the hair with a flat iron for a more polished look that stands up to the elements.”
How to Create this Futuristic Sleek Style at Home
Step 1: Start by washing your hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Keratin Smooth Conditioner to tame frizzy strands and flyaways and prep your hair from the start.
Step 2: Apply TRESemmé TRES Two Mousse from the roots to the ends of your hair, then blow-dry your hair straight while setting it with your natural part.
Step 3: Add just a small amount of the TRESemmé TRES Two Gel to the roots with the help of a fine-tooth comb. This will help you achieve even consistency.
Step 4: Slide seven bobby pins in line with the back of your ear on the ride sidelight the smooth side visible and repeat this same technique on the other side.
Step 5: Finish the look with TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hair Spray for extra long hold.
