Dar Está De Moda!

By Linda Ponder: I was thrilled to recently been invited to a fabulous glamorous fashion show for a very good cause at the Coral Gables Woman’s Club. The first edition of the “Dar Está De Moda” event benefiting “Entre Nosotras Foundation”, which exists to raise awareness against domestic violence, does so with conviction and leadership by Maria Mercedes Becerra. All proceeds from this event have gone to this organization.

“Dar Está De Moda” was hosted by Telemundo’s Rashel Diaz, featuring Pantene celebrity hairstylist Gabriel Samra while renowed designer Rosita Hurtado showcased some of her spectacular dresses.

The show began by presenting several hair models showing the latest hair trends for 2013 using Pantene Pro-V hair products. Pantene celebrity hairstylist Gabriel Samra confirmed that different styles of braids are in this summer and that although messy but “put-together” it is what we are seeing in Hollywood’s red carpets.

The glamour got into high-gear when designer Rosita Hurtado’s evening gowns were presented with astonishing vibrant colors of long elegant and flowing evening dresses, low-cuts in the back truly made an impact on the audience.

Telemundo “Un Nuevo Día” host Alessandra Villegas surprised guests by closing Rosita Hurtado’s evening gown fashion show in a gorgeous pale pink bridal dress. Aside from the beautiful dress, she looked stunning with a long pink veil hanging from a hairpiece made of pink roses. Hairstyling biggest challenge was creating a romantic up-do that could be worn on the red carpet as well. “So we decided to go with this look, perfect for a summer wedding or a night out” said Gabriel Samra.

Want that hairstyle = How to do a romantic and relaxed bridal updo in 4 easy steps:

Step 1: Blow-dry hair completely using a round brush. Place the brush underneath the hair, with the blow-dryer on top to help straighten the hair. Then use a curly iron throughout your head.

Step 2: Divide hair in to 2 sections (front and back). Gather the hair from the back in a low ponytail. Secure with a rubber band to use as a base. Then twist it into a bun.

Step 3: Part the front section in the middle in two equal sides and bring them back loosely to cover the rubber band.

Step 4: Use small bobby pins to secure the hair as it falls naturally in place and spray hair liberally with Pantene Pro-V Flexible Hold Hairspray to keep the look in place.
