TRESemme RUNWAY INSIDERS:
From the streets of New York City to the backstage and front row at the hottest shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the TRESemme Runway Insiders will be working around the clock to bring women a personal point of view of the latest hair trends and how women at-home can achieve these looks. Part of this team will be  professional hair stylists Matthew Curtis, Paul Hanlon and Jeanie Syfu who will use the full collection of TRESemme products to interpret each designers' vision into fashion-forward looks that standout on- and off- the catwalk and inspire women to turn these trends from runway to ready-to-wear.  As part of this inspiration, TRESemme is partnering with some of the most celebrated established and emerging fashion designers on the schedule including: Clover Canyon, Prabal Gurung, Phillip Lim, Misha Nonoo, Narciso Rodriguez, Rebecca Taylor and Marissa Webb.

Also joining our Runway Insiders team is blogger, model, DJ and fashionista Harley Viera-Newton.  No stranger to the front row, Harley is a girl with a passion for all things hair and fashion and is best known for her unique individual style. "One of my favorite parts of the fashion week experience is getting inspired by the amazing hairstyles you see on the catwalk, and around Lincoln Center," says Harley. "I always come away full of ideas to try at my next event so I'm excited to go behind the scenes with TRESemme and experience life from the other side of runway this season. I can't wait to share these insider secrets from the TRESemme team and empower women to try the trends themselves, with a little expert advice."

With access to all areas throughout Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Harley will gain the inside hair scoop live from backstage, the front row and from the most coveted parties taking place around New York City. Her video diaries, which will be filmed by online style mavens "The Coveteur" throughout the week, will show Harley mastering her favorite hair looks from the runway as she prepares to DJ a party or take the front row at her designer friends' shows. The TRESemme Daily Debrief series, will be streamed on www.coveteur.com and www.Facebook.com/TRESemme to give women the world over unprecedented access to the insiders at the fashion event of the year.

In addition to her Runway Insider role, Candice will again report live from Lincoln Center with the help of TV personality Louise Roe and style blogger Arielle Nachmani of Something Navy for the daily Style Setters web TV show that highlights the latest trends and tracks what's trending in social media as the style crowd discuss their top looks.
