Vidal Sassoon x Chictopia: "Show Your Genius" - Look 1: Sleek Chic

Blue floral blouse tank top via Crossroads Trading, White c/o GUESS rhinestone necklace, Ivory vintage Chanel crossbody purse, Light blue HM skinny jeans, White Tildon heels.

I'm so excited to share with you lovelies my first beauty-meets-fashion post on Inspirafashion!  
I recently was asked by Vidal Sassoon x Chictopia to participate in their campaign called "Show Your Genius."  Here, I was able to show my creative side with unique hair style creations using Vidal Sassoon products.

Also, I've entered Vidal Sassoon's fun contest on their Facebook, be sure to enter too HERE lovelies!  You can share your own hair style look and be entered to win one of many prizes, $1,000 to complete your look, and a year's supply of Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Also, feel free to check out my Chictopia posts on the series as well here.

I've always loved creating different hair styles especially when I had longer hair, but now having shorter hair, it was a fun and new experience creating different hair styles.
I decided it'd be fun to show a bit variety by creating two different hair style looks -- one as a casual daytime look and the other for night or going out.  Hope you liked the first part of this series!
First up, "Sleek Chic and 'Faux' Side-Swept" Look

I decided to use these three products from Vidal Sassoon's Pro Series:
After washing my hair with Vidal Sassoon's Moisture Lock shampoo and conditioner, my hair felt super soft, and fresh and clean.  After, I did a quick blow dry using a round brush. I usually have blunt straight across bangs, so I thought it'd be hard to have "faux" side-swept bangs.  But with the help of Vidal Sassoon's Mega Firm Hold Gel, they were manageable and held my bangs to the side after applying the product and sweeping the bangs to the side with a small tooth comb.  Not to mention, the product smells SO GOOD.  I think I'd compare it to sweet candy or a mix of floral scents.

With this Casual straight hair style, I decided to keep it simple and style a pretty floral printed blouse from Crossroads Trading with high-waisted jeans, along with all white accessories: rhinestone necklace, Chanel purse, and sleek pointy white heels.

Hope you enjoyed the first look :).  Stay tuned for part 2 this week!  The second look I created as a "Glam" hair style you can wear on a night-out.

Hope you're having a great week Beautifuls!

Kathleen
