Runway Hairstyles. TRESemmé once again made a splash this past Saturday night as the haircare sponsor for the Mara Hoffman Swim show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2012 in Miami.

Mara Hoffman Swim Show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim hair by TRESemmé

Mara’s gorgeous prints and designs evoked a very spiritual, ethnic feel. TRESemmé Stylist Elsa Canedo, the lead stylist for the show, created earthy fishtail braids to match the inspiration. The overall style is meant to have lots of texture and to look effortless without being too polished. See below for steps on how to recreate the look:

Step 1: Create a middle part and divide hair into sections

Step 2: Prep each section with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray, then curl using a 1″ barrel curling iron and pin to the head

Step 3: Once all sections are completed, take out the pins and brush the curls with a paddle brush

Step 4: Flip your head upside down and spray TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo throughout hair for added texture, lightly combing the product through with your fingers

Step 5: Flipping your head upright, divide hair into two sections down the middle of the head, and begin to create two French braids, starting at the top of the head to the base of the neck

Step 6: From the base of the neck, create two fishtails braids, and secure them with clear elastics, leaving some length on the ends loose

Step 7: Lightly rough up hair at the top of the head, pulling a few pieces loose with your fingers, and finish by lightly applying TRSemmé No-Frizz Secret Smoothing Créme in a backwards motion
