We all want a healthy, luscious and a glossy shine to our hair but we don't always get that when we tackle the journey of trying to find the perfect haircare products that will work for us. I find a lot of the times I'm swapping hair brands to find the perfect combination but that could change thanks to GLOSS Moderne. This brand specializes in four key products that in conjunction will deliver runway worthy style and hair care indulgence. Each product is rich in keratin and panthenol that helps to create a glossing effect like no other. This is a brand for a woman who appreciates luxury as well as the most technically advanced formulas in haircare available. The most standout product in the range is the GLOSS Moderne High Gloss Masque which is a superior moisture treatment that will de-frizz and coat the hair shaft with a soiree worthy shine!Read More »

Sleek hair is all the rage this season, and from what we saw at Fashion Week for fall/winter, this trend is not going away. One of our favorite sleek looks, that has withstood the test of time, is a pony tail.
We love a pretty pony because it's work-appropriate, great for all textures - including fine hair - and a great way to get a second day out of your already-styled hair. Ready to rock this runway-ready revolution? Here are step-by-step instructions for this easy up-do, and the products that will get you there.
1. Prep Your Mane
You perfected your hair for work yesterday, but 24 hours later it's looking a little … sad. Use Mason Pearson's Handy Mixture Bristle & Nylon Brush to detangle and soften your locks, in preparation for your pony.
2. Tame Your Tail
Run T3's Single Pass 1" Flat Iron over your ends and address any noticeable kinks in your 'do. Don't spend too much time on this step, as the majority of your locks will be gathered and unseen. One minute tops!
3. Smooth Your Strands
Add a couple drops of Mixed Chicks Hair Silk from root to tip. This light reflecting serum not only tames fly-aways, it also gives you the added shine and vibrancy this sleek look requires.
4. Repair Your Hair
One of the things we love about a sleek pony is that is allows you to throw on a treatment or leave-in conditioner to repair hair while it's up. We recommend klorane's Leave-In with Mango Butter. It prevents further breakage and repairs without weighing hair down. Concentrate this product at the ends of your hair to keep the 'tail' of your pony streamlined.
4. Flipping Out
Flip hair upside down, brushing repeatedly from root to tip toward the floor. Make a fist, and place it against the top of your head, this is where your pony will 'sprout' from.
5. Gather the Herd
Open your fist and begin brushing your hair into it, collecting it for the hair tie. Depending on hair length, you may have to move your fist towards the nape of your neck, in order to collect all your stands in the tie.
6. Rein It In
Using the hair tie of your choice, secure your now-collected hair. You may choose to leave the tie as-is, or you can create a more polished look by wrapping a thin segment of hair from your tail around the tie and securing it with a bobby pin towards the underside of your ponytail.
7. Polish the Pony
Now that your pony is in place, you'll want to tame baby hairs and frizz. Use GLOSS Moderne High-Gloss Serum along the hairline and sides to perfect your sleek look, enhance shine and tame fly-aways.
8. Solidify Your Style
Finish off this look with a pass of your favorite hairspray. We recommend Serge Normant Meta Luxe Hairspray to ensure hold and protect hair against damaging and dulling UV rays.

To treat hair with better care, we’re loving Gloss Moderne’s High-Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner. It makes hair smooth and treats it so gently that it improves, and maintains, your hair’s health. It can be hard to find a shampoos and conditioners that are moisturizing but also paraben, sulfate, and sodium chloride free. But Gloss has it all.
Plus, if you love locks that smell delish all day, Gloss is reminiscent of coconut and caramel, which makes showering more like dessert.
Our editor had this to say: “I recently started using this duo after having a keratin straightening treatment, and it has made my hair feel wonderful. The best thing is it’s obviously Keratin safe, but I don’t notice frizz or ‘crunchiness’ with my hair anymore, which is saying a lot since it’s gone through several chemical treatments. I’ve also heard that this will extend the life of my Keratin treatment.”Read More »
