Styled for a Steal by Suave
This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Suave.
I'll admit it. When it comes to awards shows, I'm rarely all that interested in who wins. I only care about who wore what, how they accessorized, and what they did with their hair. I've spent many a Golden Globes texting and emailing with friends to ooh and ahh over who looked particularly fabulous and share snarky comments about those who might want to fire their stylist. But, last night was the first time I held a red carpet Emmys party, and I owe it all to Suave!
Suave asked me to host an Emmys party for my girlfriends. They sent products, ideas for food and drinks, and even brought in a hairstylist so we could get ourselves red carpet ready (even though our "red carpet" was actually just two long pieces of red felt).
Erin from Salon La Di Da in Gainesville, Florida, created a whole variety of glamorous styles for us using Suave products. After all, if Suave is good enough for Kate Walsh to use for an awards ceremony (and it is -- that's exactly who styled her hair last night), it's good enough for us.
We had just about every hair type represented -- short, long, curly, straight, fine, thick, you name it. Each of us ended up with a 'do we could rock for any formal event, probably because there were products there for all kinds of hair. In the Suave professionals line, there's mousse for curls and another for volume, a volumizing root lifter, anti-frizz styling cream, extra-hold mousse and gel, and a whole variety of hairsprays. And, of course, they're all super affordable (no more choosing between whether you want to pay for clean hair or pay for stylish hair!).
While Suave sponsored this party, my friends and I had such a blast that we're already plotting another one on our own -- it was like the slumber parties we had when we were kids. Only with booze. And better cheese. And a professional styling our hair. But! It's totally something you could put together yourself (and I recommend you do). Have everyone bring some products, provide some bobby pins, and take turns creating fabulous (or just plain funny) hair. Boas and tiaras are strongly suggested.
