Tresemme's Joh Bailey took the hair to cinematic proportions for Jayson Brunsdon's show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia today. Poker-straight strands were doused in gel and hairspray to create hair that looks up from the front, but down from the back. Mac Cosmetics' Nicole Thompson went for fierce but classic makeup, and used the brand's new, creamy foundation to create easy-to-copy skin. Come, come.
The look: A loose ponytail with a ribbon, glowing skin, and a gradient glitter manicure.
The inspiration: 17th century opulence.
Trends: Nail art.
From straight, blunt hair to oil-slicked nails and graphic liner, Rebecca Minkoff envisioned a sleek and edgy girl for Fall 2013. She showed us how to take the blue eye makeup trend from Spring into the colder months with the help of Sarah Lucero for Stila Cosmetics and Jeanie Syfu for Tresemme. So put away the curling iron, break out the bold liner, and see how you can achieve this must-try style.
The look: Bold and edgy.
Who would wear it: A downtown girl who's trying to add some polish to her look.
Key products: Crayola-blue liquid liner and a flat iron.
Colour scheme: Blues and metallics from her handbags and clothes.
After ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the pieces presented at Willow’s 2012 London fashion week show earlier today, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on the hair inspiration. We loved Tresemmé hair director Sophie Roberts’s sleek and chic take on free-flowing hair – another nod to the natural, minimalist looks we saw in New York.
“The Willow woman is very much a well-defined woman," said Sophie. "The look this season is about creating a luxury in the hair," with Kit Willow adding, “[This collection] is about layers of transparency, lingerie and corsetry under chiffon; the hair needs to be very modern and very clean – almost that old Helmut Lang look.”
They called it deliberate chic, we think it's perfect.

Split ends can make even the most carefully coiffed hairstyles look less than polished. And while the only real "cure" is to trim the frizz at the salon, there are a few things you can do to smooth your strands at home. Check out this easy, three-step routine that will keep your ends sleek and silky all year long.
"It's '40s pin-up girl meets '90s Gwen Stefani," Nicole Thompson (MAC) told us of the We Are Handsome makeup. The standout was the dual-toned orange and pink lip which was all about the layering according to Thompson. She started with MAC Pro Chromaline in Orange and Pink — "As it's water-resistant, it helps to set the colour," she told us — and then layered up pre-mixed cream lipsticks. Next came orange and pink power Pigments before a final layer of cream lipstick right before the models walked out. The '40s element came through in the brow: " We've given it that structure, we've lifted the arch and that gives it a feminine, almost cat-like feel." Two coats of St Tropez Wash Off Mousse were applied using the applicator mitt and the brand's Bronzing Rocks were dusted over the models' collarbones aarms and legs for a sexy shimmer. For the hair, Kieran Street (TRESemme) wanted to include all three elements of the collection's name: 'The Matriarch, The Enchanted and The Streets'. He put a '40s spin on beachy soft strands using a 1-inch tong to "create almost a water wave, it's texture and movement" before parting hair on the side and making the front sleek. See how the look came together.
Serving up not one, not two, not even three lip looks, but FIVE at Jayson Brunsdon, makeup director Nicole Thompson (MAC) said the look was "The Lady is a Tramp, it's sexy, it's boudoir." All models' skin was shiny and glossy, MAC's Photo Lipstick was used to create a "halo" around the eye and brows were given a '50s shape, but that's where the similarities stopped and the different lipstick shades started. Hair was styled to look as though she'd "been out dancing all night and got hot and sweaty," Joh Bailey (TRESemme) told us. He used TRESemme Smooth & Silky Anti-Frizz Secret Créme and Fresh Start Dry Shampoo before tonging the hair and pinning the curls up to set. "Then we're going to pull them down and let them fall out and pull our hands back through the hairline to get that sweaty movement." There were also five different nail looks.
