Kerastase At Fashion Week, 2011

Many stylists used Kerastase products on their models during Fashion Week, 2011.

Von Anthony Salon is your North Texas location for Kerastase. 972-731-7600.

Kerastase Resistance Volumactive Mousse - Here the hair was tousled and voluminous in front, and tighter and controlled in back, which is twisted haphazardly in pieces, securing them with pins at the nape to form a tight chignon.

Below, frizz is fully eliminated so hair is shiny, sexy and edgy with Kérastase Serum Oleo‐Relax.

This wind-swept look was created by first prepping models hair with Kerastase Fibre Architectre, a yet to be released product that’s both a texturizer and a treatment conditioner. The hair was parted and straightened on the side and separated into two low ponytails. These were then knotted at the neck and four little strands were pinned to the head as if blown back by a gust of wind. The look was finished with Kerastase Double Force hairspray.

"Sweet 16 Hair. Very gentle, very easygoing." The stylist started by working in Kerastase Volumactive Mousse to build texture. Then she wrapped sections of hair around a large barreled curling iron, giving the models big, loose waves. She pulled strands from the front over to the side of the head, creating a rolled-over effect, then secured it with a small comb barrette underneath.

This style is straight and flowing with textured braids extending down using Kérastase Elixir Ultime.

How to Fix Summer-Ravaged Hair

We found some great tips on Allure.com to salvage your hair post-summer.

As if the hot air from our turbo blow dryers and the scorch of our flat irons weren't enough, the summer heat adds that extra sizzle that will put almost any head of hair over the edge. Then there's the salt water and chlorine—in other words, our hair takes a serious beating by September.

Here's how to rescue your hair for the fall.

  1. Get a cut. Parting with those beloved inches can be tough, but getting a good, healthy trim should be on the top of your list.

  2. Go easy on the shampoo.
    As Von Anthony Salon Artistic Director, Shai Stout, explains, "
    Don't wash your hair. People over wash and under condition. There are many ways to refresh without starting over."

  3. Use a deep conditioner. They are the ultimate thirst quencher for parched hair. Try a deep conditioning treatment, like Kérastase Masque Nutri-Thermique.

    Von Anthony Salon also recommends Chronologiste. The finest hair care ritual ever created by Kerastase. Never before has such a large amount of active ingredients, in the highest concentration been combined in one single formula. Rediscover true hair beauty.
