My 4-page advertorial spread with TRESemmé – MAKE WAVES

Susana Hong, TRESemmé‘s lead stylist, who also happens to be the coolest person, created three very different wavy looks for my recent spread: 1. The Hollywood Wave 2. The Boho Wave 3. The Beach Wave. All three hairstyles that Susana created looked amazing, making it very difficult to choose my favourite one, because they were all so unique, yet trendy!

I have been a huge fan of TRESemmé for a long time now, and I fell in love with their latest collection that was used in my spread called Perfectly (Un)Done™ Waves . My hair is thick and heavy, however, these products did their job, and did not weigh my hair down at all – tres excited about!

The Boho Wave is the perfect hairstyle to sport in the summer for music festivals or even on a patio during the warmer months.

We got this look using the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done™ Waves Sea Foam on damp hair, then with a large curling iron, Susanna wrapped my hair around the barrel from top to bottom, and loosely ran my fingers through it to loosen it up.

The Beach Wave has been very popular for the last few years, and it’s still in high demand! This hair trend is not only great for the beach, you can also wear it to a BBQ or a night out on the town. It’s an effortless and easy look, which I love!

I found this hairstyle very easy to achieve. On damp hair, Susanna used the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done™ Waves Sea Salt Spray, and diffused it. She also wrapped a few pieces around a straightening iron, and then brushed my hair with a wide tooth comb.

As I mentioned before, I have dreamt about being a hair model for years, and never thought it would come true. Well, I was wrong… This 5′ 1/2″,  30-something year old Style and Beauty Blogger made it happen! It’s an experience I will cherish forever. A dream come true indeed!!!

Here’s hoping that this will happen a 3rd time, since most things happen in threes, right?! *wishful thinking*
