As you may have already heard or seen, I had the privilege to work with TRESemmé for a Make Waves advertorial spread in ELLE Canada’s May 2015 issue! This is the second time in a year I’ve had the opportunity to work with TRESemmé on a fun and exciting photo shoot. This shoot focused on wavy hair and it was a great chance to show off my personal style!
At this shoot we created three wavy styles. The last style of the day was a glam Hollywood wave. To achieve this red carpet-ready look, my amazing and fabulous hairstylist Susana Hong applied TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Waves™ Sea Foam to my wet hair from roots to tips and then blow-dried my hair with a large round brush to add volume. Next, Susana created a side part and then curled small sections of hair, pinning each curl in place. Once my hair cooled, she unclipped my curls and used a wide tooth comb to gently brush them out. For the final step, Susana set my hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Waves™ Ultra Brushable Hairspray.
To complete the Hollywood look from head to toe, wardrobe stylist Karen Kwinter paired the hairstyle with a sleek black jumpsuit and white blazer. The final look was classic and very glamorous, which has become very popular over the last few years. I can see myself wearing this to a gala, fancy dinner or a cocktail party. You can never go wrong with a timeless style like glam waves and sleek clothes!
I am very grateful for this amazing opportunity to work with TRESemmé on such an exciting project and I think the spread looks fantastic! It’s been a childhood dream of mine to star in my own shoot, and I’m very proud of myself that I was able to make this happen.No matter what your age, size or height, if you work hard, stay positive and follow your passions, great things can happen!
