#NYFW Backstage Hair Report: Vivienne Tam Spring 2014
The hair for Vivienne Tam Spring/Summer 2014 was a modern twist on a 1930’s Shanghai Calendar Girl. With stylist Jeanie Syfu on point for TRESemmé, a minimal but matte-textured look was created in order to complement the bold prints and shapes to be seen on the runway.
As simple as it seems, this look entails a lot of tricks in order to create its effortless finish. Syfu gave us the scoop on how to create this seemingly natural blowout (using natural parts in the models’ hair) with its “second day look” feel:
#1: Prep hair by applying TRESemmé Platinum Strength Heat Spray to damp hair to protect hair (not only from the effects of heat styling but also from breakage).
#2: Apply TRESemmé Thermal Creations Mousse for maximum volume and flexible fullness; blow out using a flat brush.
#3: As the hair dries, allow it to fall naturally into an imperfect part. Quickly run a flat iron through the ends.
#4: Pin the front sections of the hair behind the ears to sculpt the hair away from the face. Seal the look with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray. Unpin hair.
#5: Spray hair as needed with TRESemmé Color Care Dry Shampoo (Syfu’s go-to product for breaking down and transforming models’ looks during Fashion Week) to rid the hair of any shine at the root.
