There was a subtle vintage vibe to the makeup at Talulah with Nicole Snell (Napoleon Perdis) citing "1960s California cool" as an inspiration. She interpreted that with luminous skin, false lashes (only one set was use to avoid the look from going "too sex kitten") and a hint of bronze to give the models a sun-kissed look as though they'd been "running around on vintage bikes" all afternoon. Napoleon Perdis Light Patrol Luminzer Palette played a key role in the look with the silver shade being used to highlight the high points of the face, the rose used as a triangle underneath the eyes to add colour when models smile and the bronze used underneath the silver shade to give the sun-kissed glow. Joh Bailey (TRESemme) was behind the bedhead style which he created using a big-barrelled tong to put two bends in the mid-section of the hair, leaving the ends straight. "It's got a raw, organic texture to it," he said. The hair was parted in the centre and Fresh Start Dry Shampoo was used to create the look. OPI Mod About You provided the perfect pop of pink to models' fingers and toes.
The textured mohican braids at Whitney Eve & We by Whitney Port may have looked complex, but in reality only two TRESemme products were needed to bring them to life: Fresh Start Dry Shampoo and TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray. Joh Bailey was the mane man behind the look, which saw models' hair pulled tight into braids at the side, but voluminous and heavily textured through the mohawk fishtail braid. The makeup team, led by Amber D (MAC) played with texture and once again served up a lovely luminous skin. " It wasn't about creating a character, but about creating "the most beautiful version of each girl," Amber D said. MAC Prep + Prime Moisture Infusion played a key role both before and after makeup to give the illusion that not much makeup was being worn. OPI created a custom-blend colour especially for the show using Give Me the Moon (a pale pearly shimmer) and My Pointe Exactly (a sheer grey).
Twilight star Nikki Reed kept popping up backstage at New York Fashion Week and now we know why she seemed to be everywhere. The actress was filming TRESemmé Style Setters, a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to take a look from concept to completion. The web series follows stylist Jeanie Syfu as she readies runway hair for Tracy Reese, Charlotte Ronson, and Rebecca Minkoff. "I think hair completes the look on the runway," Nikki observes in one episode. "It doesn't happen as easily as one might think it does." (She would know — her mum is a stylist, too.) The just-launched series, with Nikki and designer cameos, will roll out over the next eight months, following Syfu's team from the Fall 2012 shows into the Spring 2013 season.
When creating the hair look for Rebecca Minkoff's Fall 2012 runway show, Tresemmé celebrity stylist Jeanie Syfu was inspired by the designer's mix-of-textures assemblage of sequins, knits, leathers, and metallics. But she also looked to something beyond the surface, exploring a "woman on a journey of self-discovery. I wanted the hair to look undone, and not perfect," Syfu explained. And that meant embracing models' natural texture: no curling and/or flat irons were used, and even the brushes stayed in their drawers. See more of the undone side buns, along with tips for getting the look at home and a close-up of the double-tipped manicure, now.

The three remaining contestants jetted to Dubai in last night's episode of Australia's Next Top Model — the last one ahead of tonight's finale — and given United Arab Emirates is known for its hot and humid temperatures, we quizzed the show's resident hair expert, TRESemmé's Joh Bailey, on how we can maintain our mane when the temperatures are soaring.
- Always use some product in your hair when styling to help protect against humidity
- Try to work with your natural texture in high humidity
- Work in some loose waves that will not show up as much humidity frizziness
- If you have a fringe, keep it off your face with a simple braid like Simone did in Dubai
- One of the best products to use is to finish is TRESemmé TRES Two hairspray ($7.99) as this product actually contains no water so it's fantastic for fighting humidity

In this week's episode of Australia's Next Top Model, the girls posed in a sexy lingerie shoot and Liz and Izzy busted out some kick-ass moves in Short Stack's “Bang Bang Sexy” music video where they both wore long, dark wigs. Given that it's nearly Halloween and party season, wigs are coming into their busiest time, so we asked the show's lead hair stylist, TRESemmé's Joh Bailey, for his advice on prepping the hair first and making sure the wig stays in place all night long!
Does your hair need to be freshly-washed to wear a wig? It doesn’t matter too much. You wouldn't want to have dirty hair, but it doesn’t have to be freshly washed. Day-old hair is probably best as it has a little more hold and isn't too soft.
