Last week, Suave was one of my gracious hosts at the Unilever Suite during BlogHer. Little did I know, a treat was in store for me! I got to have a hair appointment with celebrity stylist Jenny Cho! Jenny (whose client list includes the Olsen twins and Claire Danes!) gave me some great tips and product recommendations, and I am excited to share them with you all!
First of all, Jenny asked me about some of my “hair issues.” (Don’t we all have them?) I let her know that I do a lot of flat-ironing in the fall and winter, but that I have been embracing my natural hair texture (wavy) lately for summer. Generally speaking, my summer styling has included towel-drying my hair, putting some product in, and letting it air-dry. I was proud to learn that Jenny totally supported this! She said that giving my hair a break from heat styling was very good to do, saying that it is similar to giving your nails a rest from constant polish in the winter. Sometimes it is necessary to just go au naturale!
For my styling session, Jenny demonstrated how I can ramp up the waves I already have. She used a 1.5-inch barrel curling iron and created curls that turned away from my face. The curls are more distinct than my usual lion’s mane of waves, giving a sleeker and more sophisticated look. Jenny did this in about ten minutes, and it created a great look that could easily transition from day to night. She also used Suave Professionals Weather Protection 365 Cream Gel while she was styling my hair. The product has such a light feel. It did not weigh my hair down, and it kept my hair frizz-free even during a super humid day in the city!
My hair is highlighted, and Jenny showed me some great Suave products that can keep my hair from getting dry, brittle, and damaged. Suave Professionals Almond & Shea Butter shampoo and conditioner is very moisturizing, and it is great for color-treated hair like mine. I tried it, and it has a light and very hydrating feel. It left my hair feeling silky and healthy!
Best of all, the products I described above, as well as the other amazing products in the Suave Professionals line, are salon-quality, but are available at drug stores and are very friendly on the ol’ wallet! Style on!
