I receive endless compliments whenever I wear a dress by Diane von Furstenberg. It’s like the style gods whisper to me Wear DVF if you want to feel fabulous today. This year on my birthday, one of the dresses I wore to celebrate was a hot pink DVF dress that you guessed it, made me feel like a million dollars.
Whether it is one of her iconic wrap dresses or even a summer sheath dress, I find myself wondering what to do with my hair to compliment the look. Luckily, Diane von Furstenberg is a TRESemmé Designer Partner for New York Fashion Week SS/16 so I got the scoop on a great look created by Orlando Pita, New York Fashion Week Ambassador for TRESemmé
According to Orlando, “this look is really all about Diane! Before the show, she was sharing photos with me of herself in the 1970s where it was the first time she’d let her hair fall in its natural wave and I just loved the texture and the volume she had so wanted the girls rock a little of her personality today.”
Want to get the runway look at home from TRESemmé? Here’s how in five steps:
Step 1: Start by washing your hair using Perfectly (un)Done Weightless Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and rough dry.
Step 2: Create a deep side part. Layer Make Waves Shaping Gel, then Make Waves Shine Enhancing Cream, onto a 2 inch wide section of hair, twist and secure in a bun with a hair pin. Start with one row of buns at the base of the neck and then create a second row around the crown and forehead until all hair is secured.
Step 3: Use a hair dryer to dry each twisted bun, or leave to air dry. When dry, unravel each bun, pulling apart the hair twists as you unravel.
Step 4: Use a soft bristle brush to brush out the waves and lightly tease the front section to create soft volume.
Step 5: Finish the look by tucking your hair behind one ear and spraying Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray for flexible hold. Add pins or a hair accessory for additional interest where the hair is tucked back.
TRESemmé Products Used: Perfectly (un)Done Weightless Moisturising shampoo and conditioner, Runway Collection Make Waves Shaping Gel, Runway Collection Make Waves Shine Enhancing Cream and Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray
The Tools Needed to Achieve the Look: Blow dryer, soft bristle brush, hair pins and optional accessory.
And what does DVF herself think about The Diane? “Whether in Ibiza, Portofino, Los Angeles, or Bali, I love seeing all the girls head out at night with their natural waves fresh from the beach, just tucked behind their ear with a flower, it reminded me of how I used to wear my own hair back in the 1970s and I wanted Orlando to inject that carefree vibe into the show.”
