Welcome to Beauty Diary: seven days of getting glam with an industry insider. From publicists to professional makeup artists, this a week in the life of someone who lives and breathes beauty

This week, Tresemme lead fashion week stylist Jeanie Syfu gave us a peak behind the curtains into the wild world of runway beauty prep. A week of NYFW life for Jeanie means collaborating with designers on hairstyles, running multiple hair tests, and finally getting a whole mafia of models ready to hit the catwalk.

After the jump, Jeanie shares how she created looks for the Rebecca Minkoff, Jenny Packham, Nanette Lepore, and Vivienne Tam shows, explains the importance of always having a little extra weave on hand, and demolishes her pre-fashion week juice cleanse with donuts and soy lattes.
