TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu actually created two stunning looks for Marissa Webb‘s Fall 2015 show. Along with the braided updo, there was also sleek and straight hair with bangs, completed by fresh and modern makeup. Get all the details on the hair, makeup and nails at the show right here!
Kate Middleton’s Braided Bun — Get The Gorgeous Updo From Marissa Webb Runway
Whether you prefer it more polished like Kate Middleton or a little edgy and modern like Marissa, here’s the exact how-to for the braided bun:
“Prep wet hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam and rough dry; lightly finish the hairline and ends with a Mason Pearson brush.
Using a tail comb, create a center part from the forehead to the middle of the crown, then part hair from ear to ear and back brush this section for added texture. Next, pull top section of hair straight back and secure with an elastic.
Divide the remaining hair into two parts and back brush, then tie sections into a knot at the top of the ponytail and begin a three-strand braid through the lengths, fasten ends with an elastic.
Wrap the lengths of the braid into a bun at the nape of the neck and secure with large hairpins.
Complete look with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray.”
For the straight look with bangs, Jeanie says:
“Prep with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam and rough dry the hair.
Back brush hair for a light, airy texture and create a center part.
Apply TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Perfecting Gelee and TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray throughout the hair to define the texture.”
Marissa Webb: Makeup By Maybelline
Key artist Yadim created a “soft, modern, less contrived” makeup look.
He used his finger to apply taupe shades to the eyelids and the Maybelline The Nudes Palette as a contour ion the cheekbones and bridge of the nose. No mascara was used on this look. It was very “Bianca Jagger in the ’70s.”
Nails were done by Miss Pop using OPI products. To get the look, use a sliver of car detailing tape to create negative space up the center of the nail. Use two coats of Light My Sapphire. Then smooth the nail with a regular top coat before applying OPI’s Matte Top Coat for extra texture. See the finished product here!
