TRESemmé Returns as Hair Care Sponsor of NY Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week


As part of its role as the longest-running official hair care sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, TRESemmé partnered with contemporary women’s fashion designer Vivienne Tam. Led by the brand’s global stylist Matthew Curtis, the TRESemmé international team of stylists created the latest hair trends to accompany Tam’s newest collection, which debuted on Sunday, Feb. 9, at New York City’s Lincoln Center. In addition to its sponsorship of Vivienne Tam Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, TRESemmé also partnered with modern and flirty women’s wear designer Stacey Bendet, who hosted a presentation of her alice + olivia line at The McKittrick Hotel in New York City during the same week. The alice + olivia designs blend eclectic fabrics and patterns, creating bold and perfectly-tailored pieces.

Additionally, TRESemmé partnered with designers Rebecca Minkoff, Marissa Webb and Jenny Packham to create show-stopping hairstyles for their latest collections. Although no designer’s style is alike, each new fashion line provides the perfect canvas for TRESemmé stylists to polish the looks with gorgeous hair. Each designer’s unique style helps TRESemmé make this a reality, drawing inspiration from Minkoff’s chic yet edgy apparel line, Webb’s combination of masculine and feminine style and Packham’s elegant evening and bridal wear.





Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week attendees were treated to on-site styling services at the TRESemmé Trend Bar, the brand’s two-story salon and lounge, featuring complimentary dry styling and tips from TRESemmé professionals, and samples of the latest TRESemmé products to ensure women feel front-row ready for the day.

Get The Surfer-Babe Look in Minutes

The easy, carefree lifestyle of the wave riding beach babes translates into an effortless beauty look that we all crush over. If you haven’t spent the summer shredding it up on the beach, use this surfer chick checklist to look the part of a beach cutie.


1. Obviously any serious surfer is going to have a bronzed glow that could only come from the real deal. But here’s an expert advice on how to get golden sans sunshine. Apply bronzer in the shape of a #. Start at the temples, then slightly under the cheekbone, and finally along the jawline. As a last touch, use a dusting across the nose. This can be done with powder or liquid.

Blushed Cheeks

2. A day spent catching waves will undoubtedly leave a beach beauty with flushed cheeks. A rosy glow is the perfect complement to a sun-soaked complexion. Try a sheer wash of hot pink, fuchsia, or a vibrant orange on the apples of the cheeks. Cream and gel blush formulas melt into the skin creating a realistic, dewy finish.

Beach Hair

3. No surfer babe beauty look would be complete without beachy waves. Since we spend more time at the beach in our daydreams than we do in reality, we turn to Kérastase Spray á Porter to create the salt-water-kissed texture we crave (minus the stickiness). Not sure it is available in Kuwait, but you can always order it online through Amazon.

Finish off the look with a swipe of mascara for the eyes, and add little tint for lips.

Stay gorgeous!

How To Make The Perfect One Sided Braid

The one-sided braid; another gorgeous hairstyle with a super cute braid! Think of it as a french braid, but you only add in new hair from one side ‘the top’..Follow these steps, be patient! And you’ll get it:

– Part your hair slightly off-center for this..On the heavier side, grab a section at your hairline. split it into three.
– Start it just like you would a regular french braid.
– Next add in a piece of hair from the top, still like a regular french braid.
– Now skip the part where you’d grab a new piece from the bottom + keep braiding instead.
– Then take another piece from the top + add it in.
– Continue with this pattern until you have 5-7 sections added in.
– Once you’re just past the ear, stop adding in new hair. Just do a regular braid + tie it off with a clear elastic.

Stay gorgeous! Xx

Review: J.F. Lazartigue Hair Treatment

I’ve always dealt with the problem of thinning hair..It’s not particularly thinning, but it’s too soft it makes it look that way..I used to go to J.F. Lazartigue regularly about 2 years ago..For some reason I stopped, and I just got back into it last month..I remember when I used to go, I got this new baby hair and I have to say my hair improved a lot.

Let me start by telling you a bit about the place; J.F. Lazartigue is a center that ultimately specializes in hair care & treatments..They also have a salon, nails spa, as well as an Organic Spa.

The founder, Jean-Francois Lazartigue, is one of the most renowned hair care specialists in France. He began his career as a hairdresser and opened his first salon in “Rue de Courcelles”, Paris, in December 1963. He has always been fascinated by hairdressing techniques and interested in the health of the hair.

They offer specialized treatments & products for almost everything related to hair; Dry & Damaged hair, Moisturizing Treatments, Oily Scalp Treatments, Anti-Dandruff Treatments, Hair Loss Treatments, Volumizing Treatments, Normal and Combination Hair, Styling Products, Daily and Sun Protection, Curly and Frizzy Hair, Treatments for Men, First Grey Hair..etc!

The place is spacious and relaxing, mostly in white and silver, with separate rooms for each client, so you can enjoy ultimate privacy..It’s one of my favorite things about them.

Each room has a little TV screen, a hair dryer, a sink, and products they use throughout your treatment; you can also get your mani & pedi done at the same place instead of waiting to finish & moving to the nail spa..It saves time 😉

My treatment is called ‘scalp treatment’, It helps relax the scalp, cleanse the roots, and keep the hair fresh and bouncy..I really like it; this is how it goes, at first, they apply this Massage Gel..It’s kinda minty, It cools off my scalp, head, and even hair! They leave it on after massaging it for about 20-30 minutes..I love it!

Then it’s time for this Propolis Jelly; it purifies & soothes the scalp, and leave it ready to absorb all nutrients from the shampoo..This also stays on for about 20 minutes 🙂

These 2 are the shampoos I use as the last part of my treatment..The first one stays for about 20 minutes, then it’s washed and the second one is massaged for about 7 minutes.

One more thing, you can add to your treatment is the hair mask..I prefer not to add it to mine cause it makes my hair even softer than it already is 😕 But if you’re thinking of pampering your hair, ask their hair consultant about the best combination of products for you.

And at last, the hair perfumes..I loooove their smell..Leave the hair smelling super beautiful and glamorous! 😀

If you’re a hair products freak like me, you must give them a visit..You’ll love it 🙂

J.F. Lazartigue is located at Salem Al Mubarak St, Salmiya, their contact number is 25744555.

Feather Hair Extensions

The new ‘it’ hair trend have been sneaking into girls hair and looking absolutely gorgeous! If you’re into boho chic or rockers hot looks, you’d love this!
