We all know that feeling when you leave the salon - your hair bounces on your shoulders, there’s a spring in your step, and you can’t help but glance in every shop window to admire your professionally styled locks for the rest of the day.
It’s hard to beat, but there is something to be said about the confidence that comes with knowing exactly how to style your own hair at home, everyday. Learning what styles work for your lifestyle and your hair type is key - and finding salon quality products (that don’t cost the earth) will help streamline your routine and do most of the heavy lifting for you.
In the video below, three real women with very different hair types and needs show you how they style their hair themselves everyday, using TRESemmé’s new 940ml professional range of shampoos and conditioners.
Styling addict Brittany demonstrates her go-to party top knot, after nourishing her hair with TRESemmé’s Moisture Rich range. Learn how Jo does away with excess oil, freshens her natural curls and keeps them hydrated with TRESemmé’s Cleanse & Replenish range, and busy working mum Yuki shows us her signature chic low pony using TRESemmé Smooth & Silky. You’re bound to find some practical tips that will empower you to nail an everyday styling routine of your own, with TRESemmé.
A top knot to take you to the beach - or the bar
Brittany is a style chameleon who loves to experiment and have fun with different looks when she goes out. She adores her wavy hair texture after a swim in the sea, and tries to recreate that tousled, summery look at home.
As Brittany uses heat styling tools daily, her hair is prone to dryness and needs extra TLC to keep it healthy and smooth. TRESemmé Moisture Rich shampoo and conditioner is loaded with vitamin E and jojoba oil, a nourishing combo that coats the strands with moisture and revives hair from frequent heat styling. Brittany never skimps on conditioner, so she loves that the large 940ml size pump bottle lasts her so long.
A beachy top knot is her current favourite style to wear to happy hour drinks with friends, or a big night out dancing. After blow-drying her hair smooth, she starts by tying up the top half of her hair in a half-bun, then takes chunky portions of the bottom section, twisting them up and around the bun, securing them in place with bobby pins as she goes, using her fingers to loosen as needed for that perfect tousled finish.
Maintain - and highlight - glorious, natural curls
Since becoming a mum, Jo loves to embrace her natural curls, and has found an easy, low-maintenance way to style her hair everyday.
After a sweaty workout at the gym most mornings, Jo washes her hair with TRESemmé Cleanse & Replenish shampoo, concentrating on her scalp to thoroughly remove post-workout oils and build-up. Then she follows with Cleanse & Replenish conditioner, with multivitamins and grapeseed oil, the alcohol-free formula keeps her curls feeling soft and moisturised without being weighed down.
Jo squeezes out excess water then gently towel-dries her hair before using a hair dryer to speed up the process. To finish, she uses a curling tong to wrap small sections around her face, giving her curls extra definition and beautiful bounce.
The ultimate in corporate chic - a sleek low pony
Yuki feels her best when she looks polished, but being a busy working mum of twin boys, she has little time to spend on her beauty routine. Working in a corporate office, Yuki's signature look is a sleek, unfussy style, so keeping her hair in great condition with professional products is key.
She uses TRESemmé Smooth & Silky shampoo and conditioner to cleanse her hair and lock in moisture. The paraben-free formula contains vitamin A and sunflower oil to prep her hair for a perfectly frizz-free style.
She parts her hair in the centre while it’s wet, then blow-dries her hair using a paddle brush to help smooth flyaways. To finish, she sweeps it back into a low ponytail fastened at the nape of her neck with her favourite silk scrunchie - chic and quick!
