TRESemme At alice + olivia Fall 2014 Presentation

Stacey Bendet’s Fall 2014 collection for alice + olivia is titled “Enchanted: A Midwinter Night’s Dream,” and is a blend of sharp tailoring combined with vintage Victorian charm and bohemian beauty, creating a free-spirited decadence. Suffused with luxe modernity, the collection features bold brocades, rich velvet, regal lace and opulent metallics, mixed with monarch butterfly motifs. Stacey Bendet says of the collection, “This season is about sexiness and fantasy – luxury and decadence in a wearable way.”

TRESemmé Global Stylist, Matthew Curtis complemented the collection with voluminous brushed-out and backcombed curls that were inspired by the Victorian charm and the vampish, enchanting beauty of the collection.

Follow Matthew’s Tips to recreate this look with TRESemmé products and “Feel Front Row” every day!

Divide hair into middle part. Using one-inch curling iron, curl the hair horizontally. Pin each curl with pin curl clips and allow hair to cool.
Once cooled, remove the pins one by one, and use a soft-bristle brush to gently backcomb each curl. Spray roots with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray and tease into place.
Repeat this process working from the bottom to the top of the head, ensuring you focus the teasing at the roots for that voluminous feel.
To finish, smooth out the part to create a strong graphic finish. Set the look with a blast of TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hairspray.

Products Used:

  • TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray
  • TRESemmé Two Freeze Hold Hairspray

Tools Used: One-inch curling iron, comb, pin curl clips, soft-bristle brush

Britney Spears shared a new picture over weekend showing off her newly-dyed hair!

The longtime blonde has gone back to brunette! The singer is promoting her new perfume, Naughty & Nice. She wrote, “Spice up Valentine’s Day by getting ‘Naughty & Nice’ ((pun intended)).”

Britney’s currently performing in Vegas during a 2-year, $30 million deal with Planet Hollywood.

What do you think of her darker hair?

What did you think of Lorde’s black fingertips at last night’s Grammys?

Lorde made her Grammy debut last night – and what night it was!

She performed her breakout hit “Royals” at the Staples Center. Wearing a sleeveless white shirt, and black pants, the singer belted out her famous song. She sounded AMAZING. I think I liked the live version of the song better!

As I watched her sing (my son said she looked like she was going to be sick the whole time), all I could do was stare at her black fingertips. She dipped the tips of her fingers in black paint, which she removed before hitting the stage to accept her award.

Her gorgeous dark lips came via M∙A∙C products. If you want her exact lip color, use M∙A∙C Heroine Lipstick mixed with Cyber Lipstick and M∙A∙C Vino Lip Pencil.

Although we didn’t see her typical curly mane — we loved her loose, very slightly wavy locks! The center-part was also a nice touch to complete the look. Her hair was done by Jen Atkin.


Davine’s Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion is HEAVENLY!

If hair oil sounds suspiciously like snake oil to you, we’ve found the product that will turn you on to the trend: OI/ OIL by Davines. It’s a hard-working potion that improves your hair for the short- and long-term. First, this lightweight serum instantly tames frizz, providing the ultimate finishing touch for any hairstyle. To strengthen your mane over time, it comes packed with nourishing antioxidants that help prevent hair aging and breakage.

I am obsessed with this stuff. As I get older, I find my hair changing on me. (Why can’t things just get BETTER with age, eh?) I’m finding I don’t like to put a lot of products in my hair. I’ve been using this on my dry hair – in place of other, more heavy, products. I give it 2-3 pumps, and it keeps my hair beautiful and shiny all day! I’m loving this stuff!

How it Works

The appearance and health of your hair gets an immediate boost with the help of protective silicone and antioxidant-rich roucou oil. The end result? A glossy, frizz-free ‘do worthy of a double take.

How to Use

Apply two-to-three squeezes on damp hair to target frizz or on dry hair for extra shine. Adjust the amount according to texture (less for thin hair, more for thick hair). Be sure to coat your strands from root to tip.
