If you’ve followed this site for a while, you may know that I used to have really short hair, and that I’ve been growing it out for a couple years now. The impetus behind this was wanting to have more styling options, but it’s taken me a while to figure out just how to do things with it. One thing I’ve realized is that products make all the difference, and I’m having fun discovering new ones. Apparently hairspray isn’t the only option!I love that, between styling and blogging, I am introduced to so many places and products I might not otherwise be exposed to, and I’m always so excited to share them with you. One of my recent favorites is True Grip by L’Oréal Professionnel. It’s a salon product that was recommended to me recently by a hairstylist friend, and has rocked my world ever since. Like a magical fairy dust for your hair, a little puff of it creates the most incredible texture, grip, and volume. It’s the only reason I was able to come up with so many different hairstyles on my own during Fashion Week. I would have never figured out an updo otherwise.I can’t recommend it enough ~ especially if you have really thin hair (like I do) and want to create bigger volume. I’m always running around town visiting clients, taking meetings, and putting together shoots, so I’ve started keeping a tube of it in my purse at all times, to build up and tease out my hairstyle throughout long workdays.Because I’m so obsessed with the stuff (and have been extolling its virtues to all my friends), L’Oréal Professionnel and I decided to team up and make this fun little video, to show you all how True Grip works and why it’s changed my hair game in such a big way. If you have any questions about it, let me know and I’ll try to answer them in the comments.|VIDEO| by 87AM |PHOTOS| by Mark Iantosca
