Trying New Hairstyles With Nexxus

Manhattan, NY

New Hair, New You

A new year should come with new changes. Every year I try to go out of my comfort zone and try something new that I wouldn’t normally do. It’s no secret that I have curly hair but just like everyone else, I get tired of the same style. I wanted to try an elegant up do for those special occasions or the days that I just want to refresh my look.

I teamed up with my good friends over at Nexxus New York Salon Care to get some tips on how to accomplish a no-fuss classic up-do which was surprisingly easier than I thought!

I worked with the Nexxus Global Creative Director, Kevin Mancuso who created magic in my hair the last time that we collaborated. He started by washing my hair and blowdrying it straight. I have to be honest, I’m not sure how he managed to create this style considering my hair was in dire need of a color job but we used the Nexxus Therappe Caviar Complex Shampoo and Humectress Caviar Complex Masque to condition my hair. I love this line and use it regularly as part of my hair routine.

I always love stopping by the salon because I get to try and learn about new products which is always fun for a beauty junkie. I’m currently loving the Diametress Headress Leave In Conditioner with Green Tea Extract. It’s concentrated with 100% Pure Elastin Protein which helps with sealing in moisture, volumizing and nourishing the hair.

Get The Look

Kevin started by parting the hair in the middle. He began to braid each section of the hair and side swept one side to join the other. He slowly pulled the braids apart to give it a fuller appearance and secured the look by pinning the bottom and sides with bobby pins. We finished the look with Nexxus Comb Thru Volume Finishing Mist for a flexible hold.

The look was gorgeous and it felt great to change up my day-to-day look with something so elegant. My hair felt softer than ever thanks to the Humectress Caviar complex and of course we threw in Oil Infinite Nourshing hair oil. I love this nourishing oil as it helps with frizziness and fly-aways.

I hope you get inspired to try today’s look and don’t forget to leave me a comment if you would like to see other styles.
