For those of you who don’t know me all that well, I have to tell you that I’m absolutely obsessed with all things fashion. Clothes, shoes, accessories, makeup and great hair….you name it~ I LOVE IT! They all form key parts to creating the perfect look and when you have the nack of putting them all together like you’ve been hit with the magic wand of a Hollywood stylist then you probably deserve a spot at New York Fashion Week ~ haha!
(Behind the scenes of NYFW)
With that said, I had the amazing opportunity of being a social media Influencer for the TRESemme #TRESNYFW campaign where I got to have a really in-depth look behind the scenes of the NYFW shows for 2017. All of the big designers such as Carolina Herrera, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, BALMAIN, Moschino, Julien MacDonald, Brandon Maxwell, Saint Laurent, Max Mara, Jonathan Simkhai, Jenny Packham and more were there showcasing their latest collections. This was TRESemme’s 18th season as the official hair care sponsor for NYFW which obviously means that they’re doing something very right and I loved the fact that they enlisted an all female team with the incredibly talented celebrity hairstylist , Justine Marjan (pictured below), at the head….pun intended 😉
The hair looks for 2017 were definitely on the simpler side of things with many designers opting for slick ponytails, loose braids and beachy waves which any one of us could attempt at home with the right products and techniques. TRESemme came up with the fabulous idea to put a few “how to” guides together so us mere mortals could see exactly how these styles were created, and the perfect products used to achieve the look. So, I thought I’d share a few with you so you could give them a whirl.
I noticed that in many of the backstage pictures the hairstylists were using dry shampoo on the models hair and I personally think that “Dry Shampoo” is the best invention EVERRRR! I’m actually not quite sure how I survived without it in the past ~ LOL! I find that washing my hair almost everyday is such a hack so dry shampoo allows you to go that extra day or two without feeling like your hair is completely flat and oily. If you haven’t tried it and you’re looking for a nice one then I highly recommend the TRESemme Instant Fresh which is really fab!
The fashion on the runway this year was out of this world and if I had the space to post pictures of every show then I would but ain’t nobody got time for that 😉 so here’s just a few pics from a few of my favourite shows…
I can’t believe it’s over already….seems like it went by in such a flash, but all I can say is that if #NYFW2017 was anything to go by then I’m really looking forward to the next one already 😉
Keep an eye out for the “Rock Your Runway” competition that I’m going to be running on Instagram along with TRESemme where you can be the lucky one who gets a personal hairstylist to come to your home and recreate one of NYFW hottest looks. #goodluck
