The Misha Fall/Winter 2016

The Misha is a style inspired and worn by designer Misha Nonoo herself, as well as the models who showcased the Misha Nonoo FW16 collection (via Snapchat instead of the runway). Described by TRESemmé New York Fashion Week Ambassador Chris Naselli as “naturally Misha,” and “something effortless with lots of body and movement,” this subtle wave is fresh, playful and perfect for the busy modern woman.

The Misha Nonoo label is all about creating solution clothing that will work from 9 to 9, taking the wearer from day to play effortlessly – and The Misha hairstyle is a further extension of that easy-to-wear ethos. Models wore their natural shoulder-length waves with slouchy suits, preppy collared dresses, and stripes, while Misha herself wears her waves for running around as an always-on-the-go fashion designer.

Texture is a key element of The Misha, so the TRESemmé team used a flat iron to create S-bend kinks along the hair strands. The result is a hint of a wave that looks fresh, sporty and preppy, all in one – the perfect hairstyle to complement a collection that mixes a sporty vibe with a youthful take on tailoring. AKA: clothes and tresses that will literally take you anywhere.

The Misha is also versatile enough to work on any hair length. Misha Nonoo wears her waves in a bob, while her models sported longer, just-past-shoulder-length hair. We also spied it on the street on longer and shorter hairstyles, proving its wearability. We loved it worn long over a colour pop coat for a look that wouldn’t seem out of place in Misha’s colourful, playful collection.

Whether you’ve got long hair or a chin-skimming bob, here’s how to create The Misha on any hair length.

    STEP 1:

    To help restore healthy hair, start by washing with TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner, then apply a rich layer of moisturizing TRESemmé Botanique Damage Recovery Oil Elixir from the mid-length of the strands to the ends. This helps to create shine without weighing your hair down.

    STEP 3:

    Use the S-bend method (twisting your flat iron first forwards and then backwards in one inch sections along the hair length) to create subtle bends.

    STEP 4:

    Break curls apart with your fingers, then spray with TRESemmé Botanique Nourish and Replenish Hydrating Mist.

    Finish with a spray of your favourite TRESemmé hair spray to ensure your gorgeous, gentle waves last all day – and late into the evening too! Wherever your day or night takes you, The Misha is the perfect breakfast-to-bedtime hairstyle for the busy modern woman.
