Sponsored post disclaimerThrowback Thursdays are a great excuse to bring back what works, and style is no exception. As I mentioned a few days ago, I’m super excited to be partnering with  TRESemmé and to be able to show you step by step how I adapt hairstyles from my past to make them look fresh. To follow the conversation on Twitter and Instagram, just use #TRESThrowback and #TBT.

TresThrowback 70s inspired TutorialMy first Throwback Thursday tutorial is classic and was inspired by none other than my beautiful mom.  Last time I visited her in Chile, where she lives, I saw this photo and felt I had to have it. So, I brought it with me. Of course now she knows that I took it, but she’s not angry or anything. She was actually quite excited to see how I managed to recreate her look, given that my hair is much curlier than hers.

TRESemme hair productsHere’s how I recreated her look from the 70’s:

1. First, I washed my hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Keratin Infusing Shampoo & Conditioner ($4.99 each) which provides a foundation of sleek, nourished hair.

2. I then towel dried my hair and applied the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Keratin Infusing Serum ($4.29) smoothing my locks and eliminating any frizz my hair may have.

3. Next, I blow dried my hair using a big round brush, being careful to give it volume at the crown. Once it was dry, for extra volume at the roots, I sprayed TRESemmé Fresh Start Color Care Dry Shampoo ($4.79), left it alone for a minute and then did a quick blast with the blow drier.

4. I flipped my hair upside down, brushed it and then applied TRESemmé Tres Two Ultra Fine Mist hair spray ($3.49). I flipped my hair back and then applied hairspray to seal the style and avoid frizz. It dries quickly and gives you a flexible hold which is perfect for this style.

5. To pull my hair away from my face, instead of using a comb like my mom did, I used a bobby pin with a flower for a summery look.

It probably would have been faster to simply use a straightening iron to get rid of my curls, but I opted for a blow out instead to get as much volume as possible. If this look inspires you to try out a seventies look, please share. I’d love to see what you did for Throwback Thursday!
