Holiday Hair, Here's Hoping

Monday, December 16, 2013

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year for many reasons and one of those just happens to be all of the dressing up people do for Christmas parties. I am a true girl in that I love to do my makeup and fix my hair and get all dressed up. It’s so much fun!

But my everyday look doesn’t work for a Christmas party, I always feel the need to glam it up a bit more. I mean, Christmas only comes once a year – why not get festive and max it out, right?

When Pantene sent me all of these amazing hair products, I immediately got excited about trying a new hairdo for the holiday season. If you’ve been around these parts you know that I am a sucker for trying out beauty products, so I am dreaming up all kinds of ways to test out these products.

To find the perfect holiday hairstyle, I went straight to my favorite hair blog: The Small Things Blog. Kate has amazing tutorials for any kind of hairstyle and here are a few I am excited to try to recreate for some Christmas parties:

I’ve used Pantene shampoo and conditioner for quite some time, but never really tried out the other hair care products they offer. However, I’m so interested in trying them, especially after reading that Pantene is dedicated to keeping every woman's hair healthy, shiny and beautiful. I mean, isn’t that the ultimate goal that we as women have when fixing our hair? Sign me up!

I was sent the Pantene Pro-V Heat Shield Collection to try out and these are products that couldn’t arrive at my doorstep soon enough. I mean, I use my hair dryer every. single. day. And I use my curling iron or flat iron almost daily, occasionally I’ll give my hair a break. To say that my use of heat styling tools is excessive is a bit of an understatement. Also, I have very fine and thin hair that needs some lift at the roots. I can’t wait to try out their volumizing products to achieve some extra height in my hair.  So I am ready to give these products a try and see the magic they create!

Here are all of the products that I was sent:

-Pantene Pro-V Heat Shield Shampoo
-Pantene Pro-V Heat Shield Conditioner
-Pantene Pro-V Heat Shield Heat Potion Serum
-Pantene Advanced+ Keratin Repair KERAGLOSS Oil Mist
-Pantene Pro-V Stylers Heat Protection Spray
-Pantene Pro-V Stylers Shaping Extra Strong Hold Hairspray
-Pantene Pro-V Stylers Maximum Hold Mousse
-Pantene Pro-V Volume Root Lifting Spray Gel
-Pantene Pro-V Silky Moisture Whip

My hair is ready for some protection from all of my heat styling, because let’s facing – that ain’t changing! This girl has to look good and be happy with her hair and Pantene is getting ready to be my partner in crime!

Check back later this week to see how my holiday hair styling went. I’ll be sharing the reveal of which hairstyle I decided to try and which Pantene products I used. Plus, I will be hosting a giveaway where you can win your very own collection of Pantene products just like I received. You don’t want to miss that!

I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.


  1. I really want to try the heat protection spray!!!


  2. Very nice I would like long hair at times but I suck when it comes to doing anything with it.

  3. I am not creative enough to do this to my hair!
