Last May 15, 2014, seasoned and aspiring models got the chance to show that they had what it took to be a part of TRESemme’s 2014 Runway Show.
I swear by TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner! Who wouldn’t try out the one and only brand used and trusted by professionals?
Unfortunately, I was in the US during the actual/main show, but I’m glad I was still able to attend the biggest casting call in the country as their official event correspondent.
I’m no professional host, but I tried my best to get the inside scoop on what it was like to get tressed-up with the latest hair trends to hit the runway. Here at TRESemme’s pop-up salon, I asked Victor Ortega different questions, including what TRESemme hair products we should use to achieve that salon-smooth effect!

The show was hosted by Raymond Gutierrez and Kelly Misa. Really loved Kelly’s outfit! I finally got to meet her in person and I was so starstruck! I pretty much grew up seeing her in all my local teen magazines!
The judges – TRESetter, stylist and author Liz Uy, sought-after fashion show director Robby Carmona, and supermodel, PR maven (and one of my ultimate life pegs) Apples Aberin. They were on the lookout for those with looks that can adjust to various fashion styles, as well as those who can emulate high street glam and couture styles for the main fashion show.
Over 700 hopefuls tried out for this event, but only 200 were chosen! Here were some of my personal faves. Not sure if they were all able to make it to the final show, but I seriously caught a bad case of hair envy when I saw these models walk the runway!

Overall, it was a fun event that only made me want to stop cutting my hair shorter! One day, I’ll really get my super long hair back! In the meantime, I’ll take care of what I already have with my favorite TRESemme hair products.
