Holiday Hair Inspiration

holiday hair, holiday hairstyles, holiday party, holiday hair ideas

Yesterday I mentioned that I like getting dressed up for holiday parties, and for me that means actually attempting to style my hair. On a normal morning I just straighten my bangs and go, but when I have a party to attend I like to put in a little extra effort. Nothing too complicated- just styled enough so it looks like I actually tried! I turned to my favorite source for inspiration- Pinterest. I found a few different hairstyles that I loved and thought I might be able to recreate. Pantene generously sent me a few different products to use to achieve my perfect holiday party hair. I’m particularly excited to try out the Intense Moisturizing Shampoo and the Moisturizing Conditioner because my hair needs all the moisture it can get. If it’s too dry, then it turns coarse and brittle, which is no good. I also want to try the Heat Potion Serum, which is supposed to serve as a protective barrier against the damaging effects of too much heat styling (for the complete list of products I received, see below!)

    Pantene all the way! Their volumizing line is honestly the best—every time I try a new product, I always come back to them.
