A few weeks back I attended Marc Anthony True Professional Red Carpet workshop and picked up a few nifty hair tips in addition to being acquainted with their products. Valerie, the brand executive of Marc Anthony in Singapore introduced the brand and products to us, followed by a hands on demonstration and workshop taught by hair stylist Shawn Ang.
I use to be really lazy with my hair, I’d just towel dry my hair and head out when its still semi-dry and it’s only in this one year after being acquainted, testing so many hair products that I am only slowly beginning to show better love and care for my hair. As the saying goes, our hair is our crowning glory – a lot of us shell out big bucks for a nice cut, dye and treatment, why should we not spend a little more on home care products to ensure the longevity of these expensive treatments on our hair?
For the uninitiated, Marc Anthony True Professional is a trusted brand that hails from Toronto and is stocked in 30,000 retail shops world wide. Marc Anthony the founder and creator is a celebrity hair stylists and he has tended to the the tresses of red carpet beauties like Blake Lively, Jessica Alba and Lauren Conrad.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the event with my fellow lovely beauty and lifestyle bloggers and enjoyed using the Argan the day after the event, I started using the Oil of Morocco Argan Oil treatment and Bye Bye Frizz Keratin Smoothing Blow Dry Cream to style and nourish my hair. I highly recommend both products and I am going to purchase their 2nd Day Dry Shampoo from Watsons because the entire local team was raving about how effective it is to keep hair dry and odour free especially after lunch – brilliant!
Enjoy the photos~!

There were 2 other bloggers and myself who were invited down earlier to have our hair done by Shawn before the event – super love how he straightened my hair with just the lightest curl at the edges. If only I could have this hair everyday!
Shawn conducts the Red Carpet workshop by demonstrating on attendees’ hair, here with Jeraldine. Notice how he blows and then ties her hair and styles it up into a high crown + pony tail look that’s super trendy and runway ready.
Another look I did up myself by pinning my fringe up and wearing a pair of earrings I bought from Lovisa – I like buying such “special occasion” earrings to stock up for when the occasion arises, heh!
With lovely beauty/lifestyle bloggers Jerlene, Roanna, Amie & Jeraldine. Always fun to catch up with Jerlene and Roanna and such a pleasure meeting sweet ladies Amie and Jeraldine for the first time.
Marc Anthony’s Oil of Morocco (OOM) Range is formulated to lock in moisture to give your hair a healthy shine. On the left, OOM Argan Oil Volume Shine Hairspray nourishes and styles your hair at once. (53ml, $6,90). OOM Argan Oil 3x Volume Cream (175ml, $18.90) gives you thicker, fuller with extra hold and shine and is said to last 3 days or until your next wash – not recommended for you to test it out in 3 days in Singapore’s humid weather! Lol. The OOM Argan Oil Treatment ($18.90) is a must have product to use while your hair is still damp, apply on hands and spread all over your hair – this will help to smoothen ends and prep and protect the hair for the next step when you add cream to style your hair – this is totally new to me and something I learnt from the workshop! You can also opt to use OOM Argan Oil 3 Day Smooth Perfect Blow Dry Cream (200ml, $18.90) for frizz free and shiny hair for up to 3 days. I would peronally opt for this because my hair is prone to frizziness.
Additional to the range are the Bye Bye Frizz Keratin Smoothing Blow Dry Cream – this is recommended for hair that’s brittle as the Keratin Smoothing will help to strengthen the hair – and Strictly Curls Curl Envy Perfect Curl Cream (gosh, 3 curls in one name!) $18.90 which is a best seller.
Here are more of the ranges that you might be keen to check out:

Thanks to Marc Anthony Singapore for the invite and products for review!
