Her Campus Announces TRESemme® as the Official Hair Care Sponsor of College Fashion Week 2014

BOSTON, MA (July 7th 2014) - College Fashion Week®, the premiere fashion show tour put on annually by Her Campus Media (HerCampus.com), has partnered with TRESemme® as the official hair care sponsor to bring the catwalk to campus in four major cities this fall. Kicking off on Saturday, October 4th in Boston, the tour will include stops in New York (Saturday, October 11th), Chicago (Saturday, October 18th) and San Francisco (Saturday, October 25th).

Each College Fashion Week show features all real college women — or as Her Campus calls them, collegiettes™ — as its models, having them present the latest fashions to their friends and contemporaries right in their college town. Furthermore, collegiettes will have their hair made runway-ready at the TRESemme VIP Backstage Hair Lounge by the same stylists that create the hair looks for many of New York’s most celebrated shows. It’s there that each girl will be given an on-trend hairstyle created with TRESemme’s professional, affordable salon-quality products.

On site at College Fashion Week, TRESemme will be running a Dry Styling Bar where show attendees can get their look elevated instantly by TRESemme stylists while they wait for the show to begin.  With their hair looking amazing, attendees can then step right into TRESemme’s LinkedIn Photo Booth at each of the shows to snap a “perfectly profesh pic” to grace their profiles. In addition, TRESemme will be distributing samples* of their best-selling styling products.

To amplify the brand’s sponsorship of College Fashion Week, the collegiette models and attendees will be treated to product-packed gift bags on-site, and those following along from home will see TRESemme featured through a series of advertorials on Her Campus’s digital and social platforms with a chance to win a VIP prize package from the brand.

“Her Campus is ecstatic to be working with TRESemme on College Fashion Week this year.  TRESemme helps women look and feel amazing, on-trend, and stylish in a real-woman kind of way, and that’s what College Fashion Week is all about.  We are thrilled to be able to give our models and our attendees the VIP treatment with TRESemme styling and products thanks to TRESemme’s support of this program,” said Windsor Hanger Western, co-founder and President of Her Campus Media.

“By partnering with Her Campus for College Fashion Week, TRESemme will reach women as they begin to transition through many life experiences, from starting college to getting their first job and beyond,” said Jennifer Healy, Brand Building Director, Hair for Unilever, US.  “We are excited to engage with this college market, providing them with content inspired by the runways, as well as information and tips they can take with them.” 

We always knew collegiettes were the best dressed—but now they’ll also be the best tressed, thanks to TRESemme.
