Jeanie Syfu is a TRESemme celebrity stylist who attended New York Fashion Week and looked at the hair trends for us. She focused on what hair styles to do and how to create the hair style with styling products. I won’t be taking ALL  of her advice, but some is fairly helpful.

You see, there is a bit of a translation you need to do when you get hair advice on TV/magazines. Those people are in a different environment, with lots of money, and they also have to plug their products most of the time. So, I listen to what they say and then translate it to apply for real life  functionality.

She says: Good hair styles include messy buns with controlled ‘front hair’. Use one big simple hair accessory. Try disheveled hair textures, and deep side parts. Basically, do anything that will be simple enough to showcase big outfits (large collars, statement necklaces, whatever).

What I take from that: The stylish women of France always do a low, back bun for a reason – it’s very chic. So that advice doesn’t seem very new to me. A deep side part might be interesting to throw into my look…  But since I’m not buying any $4,000 sweaters from the runway my clothing and hair do not have to really compliment each other in the same way they needed to on the runway. I like hair accessories like a flower barrette, but it’s not because it’s a trend. But I guess I’ll look trendy anyway, score!

She says: Using a flat brush is great for creating sleek hair instead of a lot of volume.

What I take from that: Fair enough! That seems like a good tip if you plan to wear your hair sleek quite often. I wouldn’t invest in that brush, otherwise. (Flat Brush – $8 on Amazon)

She says: Use your blow dryer attachments like the directional nozzle to make sure the hair cuticle stays in one direction to eliminate frizz.

What I take from that: Well, I understand the science behind that. But I really do not like to spend a lot of time blow drying my hair, and if I bought an attachment I’d probably use it about five times before I got sick of it. I don’t think it makes a ton of difference to me if I don’t do this step.

She says: Use a smoothing product – an anti frizz cream.

What I take from that: Ah, that IS the crucial step that I use when I want to have sleek hair. And the video shows a good technique for doing it (melting the product in your hands). (Anti frizz cream by Neutrogena – $8 on Amazon)
