Have you ever had to go to a party straight from work? Maybe you had a meeting that ran late and then had to rush straight to a birthday party or to meet the girls for drinks. This is always a bit stressful for a woman because the way you look at work isn’t usually the same as how you look when you’re going out. For me, these two looks differ greatly. But when you just don’t have the time to go home and completely change up your look then you have to find simple ways to change it up with little to no effort.
First things, first: you have to start out with a good foundation. Simple pieces like dark skinny jeans and basic tops make it so much easier to change up your look from daytime to nighttime. That way there’s no need to change your entire outfit. You also need to start out with clean, voluminous hair.
I have very thin, straight hair and although it’s great that I don’t have to straighten it every day, I have issues with it lacking volume. I’ve tried many different volumizing products and none of them really seemed to make a difference. And then I tried the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Collection and completely fell in love!
Unlike typical shampoo and conditioning systems, the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Collection uses a reverse wash and care process. You begin with your pre-wash conditioner and then follow up with your reverse wash shampoo. Just after the first, wash, my hair not only had more volume, but it was left feeling extra soft and smooth as well. The product line also includes the Beauty-Full Volume Hair Maximizer which I work into my damp hair every day before blow drying it as well as Beauty-Full Volume Touchable Bounce Mousse and Beauty-Full Volume Flexible Finish Hairspray. This allows you to style your hair however you want and still end up with noticeably beautiful and touchable volume.
Now that you have your base down, here are five easy ways to change up that look from day to night:
Change your accessories.
Typically I’d be adding accessories to my look. During the day time I tend to stick with stud earrings, my Alex & Ani bangles and a simple necklace. By night, I’ll add some larger earrings and/or switch up the necklace for something a bit more flashy. Maybe I’ll even add a chunky ring as well.
No one wants to carry a large purse with them when they’re out. My daytime bag literally becomes a hoarding bag throughout the day so it’s always nice to switch to something smaller and lighter and only carry the necessities when I’m out.
Change into heels.
This one is super simple. Switching from flats to heels is a quick and easy way to change up your look.
Change up the makeup.
I tend to keep my makeup pretty natural looking throughout the day. By nighttime, all I have to do is touch up my foundation, add a smokey eye and/or a red lip and I’m good to go!
Throw in some curls.
Add even more volume by throwing in a few curls! Since your hair was already washed with TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, you can now lock in those new curls with the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Hairspray or Mousse. I happen to be more a mousse girl so that my curls are both locked in and touchable! Both products are amazing, especially when paired with the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. I throw in some mousse and then toss it into a messy bun for about five minutes to let it lock in the curl. I then take it down, run my fingers through it and I’m good to go! You can do this with or without using a curling iron first.
Like I mentioned above, I use the pre-wash conditioner, reverse wash shampoo, and the hair maximizer on a daily basis and am completely in love with the system! It’s a super easy way to add volume to your look without changing up your typical routine and adding more products to your look.
