"I am excited to partner with TRESemme on a curated hair look that celebrates personal style and inspires women to maintain a sense of conviction and ease on and off the runway."
In addition to Misha Nonoo's show, world-renowned hair stylists Orlando Pita and Jeanie Syfu will partner with TRESemme to create fashion-forward looks for some of the week's other celebrated fashion designers including: Banana Republic, BCBG, Carolina Herrera, Diane von Furstenberg, Erin Fetherstone, Herve Leger, Marissa Webb and Rebecca Minkoff.

"This season, TRESemme is putting a new twist on how we share our stylists' tricks from backstage by partnering with Misha Nonoo to have the models style their own hair before hitting the runway, with the professional expertise and products only provided from TRESemme. Our fans will experience backstage at Misha Nonoo's show in real-time using social and traditional media, allowing them a never-before-seen look at how the professionals create the season's top trends."
