When Belleza Suave selected me to be one of the bloggers to represent them in a promotion during Premios Juventud, I had no idea exactly what I was in for. I never imagined that I would make some amazing friendships as well as have some of the most fun I’ve ever had!
We kicked off the celebration at Barceloneta (1400 20th Street Miami Beach, FL 33139), a South Beach tapas restaurant where I got better acquainted with fellow bloggers Delmy Reyes from Fashion Bananas and Gabriela Natale from Super Latina Tv, the Belleza Suave Team, and celebrity stylist Leonardo Rocco of Rocco Donna Salon (101 Ocean Drive Miami Beach, FL 33139).
Our night ended quite early since we all needed to be up by 5:00 am to head over to Univision Studios where we participated in a segment on Despierta America. Leo used Delmy, Gabriela and I as models to show off the trends he predicted to be hot on the blue carpet at Premios Juventud later that night.
My hairstyle was pretty amazing, especially how Leo put the top bun together with a sock! The final version I ended up wearing to the award show however was created sans sock. Find out how you can imitate this look at home with a step-by-step guide below:
1. Flip all of your hair downward. Then, French-braid the middle section beginning at the neck going all the way up to ear level. French braiding is similar to normal braiding except you have to keep adding hair as you go along braiding.
2. Secure hair in a high ponytail and separate it into 4 different sections to begin creating the bun.
3. To give it the long-lasting hold needed, spray a bit of Suave’s Touchable Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on each section and start to roll the hair down from tips to middle and secure it with bobby pins – follow this same process with the other ponytail sections until it begins to form a big bun.
4. Finish off the hairstyle by securing it with additional bobby pins and spray a bit more of hairspray to give it the final touch.
And while I can’t confirm that our hair is what scored Delmy and I a chat with Premios Juventud host Wilmer Valderrama, I bet it helped!
Here is the video segment from Despierta America where you can see Leo working his magic on Delmy, Gabriela and myself in case you would like tips on recreating our looks.
