How to Steal the NYFW Hairstyle Called “The Side Sweep” According to Laureen Uy



This February, New York Fashion Week (NYFW) officially kicked off the Fall/Winter 2019 collection shows by different designers and labels. From donning the designers’ latest creations, to the makeup looks and hairstyles, everything about NYFW can leave every onlooker inspired. While not all of  may be able to cop the fall winter looks in this tropical heat, we can at least take inspiration from the stylish hairstyles on the models. And this year, the smooth “side sweep” hair trend has taken over the scene.

To show us how to steal this look, we got in touch with fashion blogger and TRESsetter Laureen Uy straight from NYFW. To prepare in time for the Kate Spade Fall 2019 fashion show, she has gotten her tresses treated by only the best stylists at the TRESemme salon. Learn how the TRESemme team has glammed up Laureen’s hair into a polished side sweep:

First things first, start off with freshly washed hair.

To get the right runway-smooth texture, you have to start with a clean base. Wash off any residue and excess oil from your hair with the TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo. It’s a power-packed shampoo that protects your hair from frizz and detangles it making it shiny and smooth. Pair it up with the Keratin Smooth Conditioner to help tame your flyaways.

Protect your hair from heat damage.

Styling your hair comes with risks that may damage your hair for good. Protect your locks from the heat of styling tools with the TRESemme Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Spray. This heat protection spray can shield your hair while reducing frizz so you can have smooth, straight, shiny stylized hair. Spray it liberally onto your damp hair and comb it through to spread it evenly.

Smooth things over.

Now comes the tricky part. Make a parting on your hair down on one side, preferably somewhere further on the side of your normal parting. Divide your hair into portions so you can pay attention to each section carefully. Make sure to start from the very root of your hair down to the tips. Secure some colorful bobby pins on one side of your hair for some added boldness.

Flaunt that look all day long.

Keep your hair in place for a fierce look that’ll last all day. Spray on some TRESemme Freeze Hold Hairspray for an extra strong hold on your tresses, so you can have that sleek side sweep even in damp or humid conditions.

Get inspired by the latest fashion wear and the side sweep fresh off the NYFW with some help from TRESemme and Laureen Uy.
