And so the next event last week was the Schwarzkopf's Made to Create presentation that happened in the Big Hall of the Riga Latvian Society House. 
After the trend review and defile (you will see some of it in the vlog) that we watched from the top balcony we were invited to go on the stage, learn about the new Made To Create collection and ask questions to the professionals - Christian Petek (international class stylist and Schwarzkopf Professional trainer from Slovenia), Catherine Vavilov (Schwarzkopf Professional trainer in Latvia) and Natalia Rivoņenko (school-studio Create in Riga manager). 
Under the collections name Made to Create, Schwarzkopf has developed three exciting appearances  - Urban Sport, Future Wave and Freecreation (I swear they make the coolest videos for their collections - check the video below!). Schwarzkopf's Essential Looks 01/2016 focus is on the stylists creativity and so it has created two styles, one that combines the bright colors and bold cuts and the second that has a more of a sophisticated look that highlights the humans natural beauty. With this new collection OSiS+ has not only come out with 8 new products, but has also changed the design of the packaging. In the line you will find products that are meant for every hair type and makes it easy to find the right product for the chosen appearance.
All of these OSiS+ products are put into 4 categories - prep, style, texture and finish. The Primer Undercoat evens out the porosity of the hair and makes the hairs surface smooth with an anti-static effect, it also gives a silky shine and a natural fall. This is the product that excited us there the most. We got to try it, to see the texture and how it smells. I really want to try it on my hair now!! The Big Blast is the first volumizing gel that provides a long-lasting volume while allowing the hair to maintain the natural feeling. If you have curly hair and usually straighten them, then the product for you is the Tame Wild cream. It evens out the hairs cuticle and makes them smooth and shiny, allowing them to look great until the next wash. Bouncy Curls is the first curly hair styling gel with oil - it helps fine and normal hair owners to create expressive and persistent curls. For thick curls choose Curl Honey. It defines natural coarse and frizzy curls & waves. Gives curls definition and bounce with a smooth and touchable finish. When it comes to texture, the new OSiS + again wants to surprise us, because it has supplemented the product range with three new innovative products. It is believed that one of the top trends will be the wet hair look. The perfect product to achieve this look is the Damped Wet Look Pomade. It is the first pomade with obvious wetness effect. Creating hair with this pomade you can achieve a damp or wet hair look. The pomade has a non-slip texture and gives the hair a natural shine. Meanwhile, a waterproof and ultra–strong hold and definition gel Play Tough offers a rock solid durability. It has a non–sticky consistency with flexible application before it sets. Just mold and sculpt the hair into the desired shape and leave the product to set. And the last product in this line is the Mighty Matte cream. It's an ultra–strong matte cream for strong matte looks with extreme hold. Perfect for long–lasting style control, the cream provides strong texture and separation. (Best for short and medium length hair). 
We got 4 of the products in our goody bags - Big Blast, Tame Wild, Curl Honey and Mighty Matte. The first one I will probably try will be the Big Blast, as my hair is straight as a knife and doesn't really need that much of taming or curl defining, but is definitely in need for some volume.
