Justine on the inspiration behind the look:

“The collection is very woodsy inspired and romantic. Like the girl that’s out camping and slept on her hair,” explains Justine. Which explains the dreamy braid complemented with a matte and frizzy hair texture.

How the models were prepped:

All the models had heat applied to their hair, so before getting to that step hair was washed and conditioned with TRESemmé Repair & Protect Shampoo and TRESemmé Repair & Protect Conditioner. “The models that came in with dry hair, we applied mousse to create the foundation then sprayed dry hair with dry shampoo to give the hair texture.”

Getting the look at home:

According to Justine, an easy way to get this look at home is to simply put your hair into a braid and sleep on it. However, if you have more time on your hands follow the below steps to get the runway look.

Step 1: Wash your hair.

Start by washing hair with TRESemmé Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner to protect hair against breakage.

Step 2: Part your hair.

Part hair down the center and apply a dollop of TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Firm Control Mousse throughout your hair, combing through with your fingers for even distribution

Step 3: Blow-dry your hair.

Take sections of hair into your hands and fold them up, 3 inches at a time until it hits your scalp. Blow-dry each section using hot air to set the foundation and lock in the style. To seal, use cold air.

Step 4: Use a flat iron.

To create defined waves, use a flat iron to create an “S” shape like crimps throughout your hair.

Step 5: Spray your roots.

Spray roots with TRESemmé Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo to soak up any excess oil ensuring you’ll get the lived-in, matte look you’re after.

Step 6: Separate your hair.

Separate the front piece of hair on each side of the part and gather the remaining section to create a loose braid leaving the front pieces out for a slept-in texture. Secure the braid with bobby pins leaving out 1-3 inches at the end for an effortless finish.

Step 7: Lock in your style.

Seal look with TRESemmé TRES Two Firm Control Hairspray to lock the look in.
