Being a fashion girl isn’t as easy as it may seem. From meeting clients and running to shoots to consulting and editing photos, no day is ever the same. Sure, this lifestyle has its perks, but it takes a special type of person to be able to stay polished from dusk to dawn with minimal free time in between: a person like Mara Ferreira of M Loves M, who despite her hectic schedule has figured out how to stay fresh—with the help of Nexxus—while on the go.
Scroll down for Ferreira’s top tips for staying fresh anytime, anywhere.
If you know that your day is going to be particularly busy, Ferreira suggests prepping in advance. “Because I tend to use a lot of heat and product on my hair, I need a shampoo with strengthening qualities, like the Nexxus Therappe Shampoo,” she says. “I let my hair air-dry before going to bed so in the morning I don’t need to blow-dry and style my hair.”
“On my crazy-busy days, I love styling distressed jeans with a fun top and flats, but I always keep a pair of nude heels in my car in case I need to dress up for a meeting,” explains Ferreira. Her go-to ’do? “I feel most myself with hair in soft waves,” she says. "I always spritz the Nexxus Maxximum Finishing Mist before heading out to ensure that my waves are set all day.”
The best part of having your hair in waves? “For an evening event, I can throw on a dress and easily pull my hair back into a messy, low bun and pin it,” explains Ferreira.
“I always keep a travel-size bottle of the Nexxus Comb Thru Hairspray in my purse or car because it’s perfect for taming those pesky flyaways,” says Ferreira. “On those extra-crazy days, you’ll be happy to have it,” she says.
