Happy Valentine’s Day! I know that A LOT of people hate V Day, but let’s take a moment to take a deep breath and try to understand what it is about this “holiday” that’s so bad.
Sure, it’s a commercial holiday; yes, you’ve been seeing heart-shaped everythings since Boxing Day; of course, it makes you feel crappy if you’re not coupled up. But let’s take a moment to flip the script and change our perspective. It’s also a day to tell people how much you loved them (that includes mom, day, brother, sister, cat, mailman… whatever). It’s also a day that you can show yourself some love and treat yourself. The most important relationship you have in your life is with yourself. So take this magical day to love yourself!
This brings me to my next point. Whether you’re getting ready for a hot date, a night out with the girls or just want to do something to treat yo self, Kérastase PARIS has got you covered. They just came out with a trilogy of Power Couples designed to give you the style you want easily and effortlessly. Each Power Couple comes with one of their best-selling Thermique and a travel-size Couture Styling Spray.
Va va voom volume is always a good idea! The Sumptuous Volume Power Couple includes the Ciment Thermique Resurfacing Strengthening Milk to prime hair. After applying to towel-dried hair, flip your hair over and blowdry to get maximum volume. Style hair with a large round brush, then spray the VIP Backcomb Effect Spray on the roots and gently backcomb to maximize volume and give your hair a healthy dose of oomph!
Whether your curls are natural or not, consider the Perfect Curl Power Couple your new BFF. The Nectar Thermique Polishing Nourishing Milk is the first step to add shine and make hair easier to style. After blowdrying hair, prep hair with the Laque Noir Extra-Strong Hold Hairspray and curl small sections away from your face. Run your hands through your curls so soften the look and finish with another mist of Laque Noir. Voilà!
If it’s a sleek, feminine look you’re after, the Smooth & Sleek Power Couple is just the thing. The Keratine Thermique Smoothing Taming Milk primes and protects hair as you blowdry, preventing flyaways and giving your hair that sleek look. Give your hair extra smoothness with a flatiron, then give your hair an allover mist of the Laque Couture Medium Hold Hairspray to finish.
