By the hair looks from Milly by Michelle Smith created by TRESemmé NYFW Stylist Odile Gilbert, you can rest assured knowing that your “I Woke Up Like This” hairstyle is still a hit. Odile created effortless ponytails that you can literally recreate in your sleep.

The Effortless Pony from Milly SS ‘19



Some of us are blessed to wake up in the morning and have our hair already styled the way we want it but this may not be the case for the rest. Sometimes, that “effortless” look takes a few styling tools and hair products.

Odile has a simple tip that we all can benefit from, “The key to any ‘I just woke up like this’ look is using your fingertips to create natural texture.” However, if you need a few more steps to really nail the look you want, follow the steps below:

“The key to any ‘I just woke up like this’ look is using your finger tips to create natural texture.” – Odile Gilbert, TRESemmé NYFW Stylist

Step 1: Start by washing hair with TRESemmé Thick & Full Shampoo and Conditioner to create a voluminous foundation.

Step 2: Create a clean part down the center of your hair. Use a coin size amount of TRESemmé Thick & Full Balm to give hair textured impact and then rough dry.
