NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Suave Professionals® celebrity stylist Leonardo Rocco kicked off Funkshion Miami Beach Fashion Week by taking a historical tour of fashion and beauty trends with a look toward the future. As a tribute to the show's tenth year, Rocco created the "DECADE" concept, which took the audience on a tour of hair and fashion starting with the late 20's. Rocco and his team gave each of the hairstyles a touch of glam using Suave Professionals®.
In preparation for the show, Rocco took inventory of hairstyles throughout the past nine decades and found looks that inspire not only the versatile and feminine styles he creates today, but also hair trends to come. Suave Professionals® products were a critical part of his team's toolkit for the show as the brand's various lines have evolved through the years to fit women's styling needs.
"Like Suave, I'm dedicated to helping all women live beautifully by giving them the tools and tips to create beautiful styles. The past is a constant source of inspiration while I look ahead toward the future. By taking the best of the decades, such as the movement of the classic 50's styles that celebrated volume and curl and the playful and sexy hair from the 70's, I was able to present the looks that inspire my work today," said Leonardo Rocco. "From today's looks to the styles of tomorrow, Suave Professionals® will continue to make women look and feel good through the years."
Suave Professionals® Natural Infusion includes three hair care collections that are free of parabens or dyes. For more information, visit Suave.com for styling tips and tricks. Additional hair trends and product information can be found on the Suave Beauty Facebook Page or @SuaveBeauty on Twitter.
