Halle + Tresemme = A Badass Updo

Hey Ladies,
The Oscars! Spectacularly boring! I did, however, love the new way they introduced the acting Oscars. The movie buff in me adored seeing all those back-in-the-day winners together in one glitzy clump of talent and ego! Speaking of, Halle Berry looked particularly gorge as she helped present the Best Actress award, didn't she? She really has been so glowy and lush since Nahla was born (where's MY lushness, yo?)...and the chignon was LOVELY. So lovely, I did some digging and found out how her hairstylist, the much-sought-after Mara Roszak for TRESemme, worked it out:

1.) She applied TRESemme Thermal Creations Straightening Gel ($4.99) to Halle's wet hair from roots to ends, and then blow-dried it with a round brush.

2.) Next, she sprayed random sections of her hair with TRESemme TRES TWO Ultra Fine Mist Hairspray ($4.75), and curled them using a 1 1/4 inch curling iron.

3.) Then, she rubbd a dab of TRESemme 24 Hour Body Weightless Crème between her hands and raked her fingers through the curls. Next, she pulled Halle's hair into a pony, twisting it into a loose chignon and securing with bobby pins.

4.) After leaving out some sexy, face-framing strands, she sprayed the 'do with TRESemme TRES TWO Ultra Fine Mist Hairspray.



For those of you who asked for a new pic of La Lina, okay, okay, you twisted my arm. Here she is in all her giggling glory!

I use a few TRESemme heat protectant styling products. I'm thinking of trying the volumizing products as well. La Lina is gorgeous!

I love Tresemme shampoos, conditioners and mousse. I've never tried any of the other styling products.

And La Lina is too cute, a very nice picture of her.

She is such a cutie-pie! I never really gave Tresemme a second thought even though the jingle plays in my mind whenever I see the name...tresemme, tresemme, oooh la la...(is that still the jingle or am I dating myself???)

Is it really "work" to make Halle look good?!?! And I thought she worked with Neeko? What's he been up to?

Everyone here is all about noticing the Juicy outfit, but I noticed one thing-you pierced that baby's ears!!! OH! Thank heaven for little girls!

Tia, La Lina is so adorable. I just saw her picture in an older post and I noticed she already has her signature post: her left hand on her hip and her right hand resting gingerly in her lap. Too precious!
