The Bardot Bouffant Fall/Winter 2016

Runway hair went retro for the À Moi FW16 New York Fashion Week show, with TRESemmé Ambassador Christopher Naselli creating a trio of iconic 50s, 60s and 70s styles to complement the high necks, flared trousers and crochet knits in this cool, casual collection. But if we may say so ourselves, we think the bouffant hairstyle he created is well worth a closer look.

Teased high at the crown and pulled back into a low pony, our Bardot Bouffant exudes effortless glamor while being perfectly practical for the modern woman who’s always on the go. Think sexy 60s volume with a fresh twist! 

On the runway, À Moi models sported a sweep of graphic black liner across the lower lid (another modern twist on classic 60s beauty) and textured ponytails for a more relaxed result, though we love the idea of playing with the look to suit your style personality. 

And here's the best bit: despite looking professionally put-together, this bouffant hairstyle is a quick and easy updo to achieve with just a few tools and  tricks. Here’s how to master the Bardot Bouffant from À Moi FW16.

    STEP 1:

    Start with the back-to-front wash! Yes, that’s right – wash your hair in reverse order, using TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner to soften the hair, followed by TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo to wash away weight. Then apply a quarter-sized amount of TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Maximizer to the roots and rough dry. This will help you achieve that bouffant lift and voluptuous volume.

    Use your teaser to backcomb hair from the crown – the bigger the better for a stand-out movie star look!

    STEP 3:

    Sweep hair across the forehead and gather into a practical low ponytail. An embellished elastic will add extra interest – we spotted sleek and shiny metallic details on the runway.

    You don’t have to be a movie star or a model to rock the Bardot Bouffant – this sexy swept-back style brings out the starlet in every woman.
