Get that travel mood board ready with the designer’s wanderlust-inspiring runway look.

Let’s start with just how easy it was to recreate this lewk, shall we? TRESemmé NYFW Stylist and backstage baemaker Odile Gilbert assured us that the key to nailing Prabal Gurung F/W 2019’s coveted, relaxed nomad, devil-may-care-but-make-it-fashion hairstyle was a lack of fuss. “Maintain body by blow-drying hair with your head upside down, and then use TRESemmé Between Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo at the roots to get an effortless, voluminous finish.”

Blow-dry upside down? OMG so me. Dry shampoo to get you out the door? Where do I co-sign! No, seriously: This winter’s weird AF temps have given us major trust issues with how to do our locks, so much so that a lot of us have resorted to messy updos, that awkward, staticky beanie life or just simply—and quite literally—throwing caution to the brisk, winter wind. So the moment a hint of warm weather styling comes our way, and the languid, easy-peasy, travel-inspired glam that comes with it, you can bet it’s one we’ll be all about come March 21st. Yes, because spring is officially 27 days away and nope, no one is counting.

Read on for tips on how to get the relaxed nomad look at home, and enjoy that wanderlust as it kicks in:



Hair Inspo: Relaxed Nomad at Prabal Gurung F/W 2019



Step 1: For a full-on prep, wash hair with TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner, followed by TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo to create a voluminous foundation.

Step 2: Spritz hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray before rough-drying hair upside down. Ed’s tip: The upside-down blow-dry technique helps give strands extra body and texture!

Step 3: Apply TRESemmé Thermal Creations Blow Dry Accelerator Spray onto hair, and then blow-dry the roots upwards for maximum volume.

Step 4: Second-day gals, start here! Spray hair with TRESemmé Between Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo, starting at the roots and lightly diffusing all throughout. Scrunch product into the roots with fingers to encourage more body for a truly relaxed nomad feel—you know, like the wind is literally in your hair as you’re trotting around the globe, one sailboat/camel/gondola/cute Italian scooter at a time.

Step 5: Comb your hairline straight back. Ed’s tip: Use your fingers for a rougher feel and a fine-toothed comb for a more refined look. Lock in that height with a spritzing of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Boost Hold Level 3.

Step 6: Use a small amount of TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Firm Control Hair Gel to slick back the remaining front section of hair above the ears (a.k.a. your sides) for that runway feel. Now get your passports ready!
