Want that Hair: My Style Recreation


Diana Agron Hair Inspiration

best lace wigs 

If you read my first post about holiday hairstyles, then you know I was hoping to recreate Diana Agron’s hairstyle! I made a plan in my first post, and today I am sharing with you my final hair reveal.

Pantene Heat Shield

I started with Pantene’s heat shield protection shampoo and conditioner because it is always important for me to start with fresh, blown hair. I will first start with some products to add to my damp hair! As outlined in my plan, I will use:

Pantene Oil Mist and Smooth Lisse

Pantene’s Advanced+ Keratin Repair KeraGloss Oil Mist on my damp hair, and use it again on my completed hair do, for extra shine and shimmer. I also used Pantene’s Smooth Serum with Argan Oil Shine to control the frizz. I used Pantene’s Stylers Heat Protection Spray prior to blow drying my hair, to protect it from heat damage. I also decided to use Pantene’s Silky Moisture Whip to help comb through my damp hair and make it super smooth. This is definitely one of my favorite Pantene products!

Lace Hair Systems

I used Pantene’s Volume Triple Action Volume Mousse after blowing drying my hair partially to ensure the curls will stay.

For me, the easiest way to achieve curls like this is to use a curling set. First I will use some of Pantene’s Stylers Extra Strong Shaping Hairspray to help me tease and set up my hair with a slight side part. Normally I wait to part the side, but I want to make sure my hair looks as nice as Dianna Agron’s does, which means I need to pay attention to the top of my hair before moving onto the curling! After I have my hair parted and pinned back halfway like Dianna’s, I will tie half of my hair up to focus on the bottom part.

Using my roller set, I start out by using the biggest curlers for the bottom half of my hair. Just like I would with a curling iron, I switch back and forth between which way I roll the hair, this will help give a fuller, volumized look. I then let down the second part of my hair and switched between using big and smaller curlers, and of course, making sure I roll the hair opposite each time. After I have the curlers in, I spray my hair with hairspray again.

After the rollers completely cool, I carefully take each one out and spray again with hairspray. At this point, I used the Smooth Serum again to help work through my curls and make them look beautiful and give that vintage vibe like Dianna’s hair. Again, I will add just a hint of the Oil Mist to give that healthy, shiny look! The final touch, is adding a gorgeous, decorative pin to my hair, just like Dianna’s and there you have it, ready for a night of fun.

Want That Hair: Holiday Hairstyles

celebrity style wigs

There are so many hairstyles I am envious of and while I’m no professional at doing my hair, I certainly use them as inspiration. I love the loose, undone styles of Blake Lively and Gisele Bundchen and the always perfect curls of Lauren Conrad and the Kardashians. With some more formal holiday parties and events coming up, I was looking for inspiration that I could actually recreate and that would suit the look I’m going for. Diana Agron is completely stunning and always has perfect hair. Whether it is pulling off the glamorous vintage curls as seen above, or rocking her new look, she always pulls it off well.    I am absolutely in love with her hair style from the 2011 Golden Globes. It is romantic, yet fun with a sparkly hair piece. This is exactly the look I want to recreate for the holidays!

Pantene, the World’s #1 Hair Care Brand, is dedicated to keeping every woman’s hair healthy, shiny and beautiful. To achieve this holiday hair look, I will be using a variety of Pantene products! I will start off with a clean head of hair. I have been told for years that curls stay better on “dirty” hair, but I’ve actually found it is better to wash and blow dry my hair to have the best curl results. Also, when I was in New York, they made me come in with clean hair, and my hair turned out amazing, so I trust that is the best way now.

Damp Hair Wet Hair

I would start off by using Pantene’s Advanced+ Keratin Repair KeraGloss Oil Mist on my damp hair, and use it again on my completed hair do, for extra shine and shimmer. I would also use Pantene’s Smooth Serum with Argan Oil Shine to control the frizz. I have very frizzy hair, and so when curling my hair, it is important to keep it to a minimum. I have been using Pantene’s Stylers Heat Protection Spray for quite some time now, and will continue to use it prior to blow drying, straitening or curling my hair.

(Almost) Dry & Dry Hair Dry Hair

Next, I will partially blow dry my hair, then use some moose to give it volume and ensure that once I start to curl my hair, they will stay in. Pantene’s Volume Triple Action Volume Mousse will work perfectly for this. Finally, it is ALL about the hairspray. Pantene’s Stylers Extra Strong Shaping Hairspray will keep my hair looking fabulous all night. Again, I will add just a hint of the Oil Mist to give that healthy, shiny look! Stay tuned, I will be doing another post to show you how Pantene helped me achieve my final holiday hair style.

Pantene Pro-V BB Creme Product Review

Pantene Pro-V

I am completely in love with BB Creams, so when I saw an advertisement for Pantene Pro-V’s BB Creme for hair, I was immediately intrigued. BB creams were developed to provide an all-in-one product that can do 5, 8 or 10 things at once to provide the ultimate beauty product to hide flaws.  Pantene Pro-V Ultimate BB Creme was developed with the same idea in mind, saying it provides 10 benefits:

Repair for Rough Hair
Strength against Damage
Silky Softness
Brilliant Shine
Smoothing
Moisturize
Frizz Control
Heat Protection
Manageability
Tame Fly-Aways

I am in marketing/advertising, so there are a few benefits I question just because there could be different definitions of these depending on who you talk to.  For example, I wonder what they mean exactly by repair for rough hair and manageability? When it comes to manageability for hair, I think tangle-free, whereas someone else might think it just makes it easier to style your hair. Maybe it means both? Anyway, I am just bring this up because when I buy a new product or am giving a review, I just want to make sure  it is clear that I am trying to give the best review I can based on the claims and what I find to be true.

As some of you already know, I recently colored my hair be more blonde, which I love, but I can already feel the damage from highlighting it. That was my main reason for buying this product last week. I have been using it on a daily basis along with my color protective shampoo/conditioner and Moroccan Oil.

Pantene4

After using the Pantene Pro-V Ultimate BB Creme for almost a week, I find that a lot of what the product claims to do is true and it seems to be a great product that I will continue using and most likely buy again. My hair has been really hard to brush through after showering with the recent color transition, so after I shower, I run a couple pumps of the BB creme through my damp hair, which makes it a lot easier to brush through.  It definitely seems to help immediately moisturize and smooth my hair when I apply it.  After blow drying and straitening my hair, it has been very smooth and the frizz/fly aways have been reduced. Typically I use my John Frieda Frizz-Ease Smoothing Creme for this, but because you can apply the Pantene Pro-V BB Creme to both damp and dry hair, it seems that I no longer need the frizz ease creme and can just apply an extra pump of the BB creme to my dry hair. I would like to believe it helps with heat protection, but how would you know this for sure? I guess because my hair looks healthy even after blow drying/straightening it. It has also helped me detangle my hair before blow drying, which has really been helpful since I got my hair colored. Moroccan Oil also helps with this though, as well as giving me shiny, healthy looking hair, so some of these results may be attributed to the oil (which I love and will continue to use ALWAYS).

Pantene Pro-V Creme

Conclusion:

All in all I give this product a thumbs up. Even though it might not do everything it claims (or how I interpret some of the loose definitions/wording), it definitely has helped give me smoother, tangle-free, more manageable hair, as well as helping with frizz and fly aways. It is a nice size and has a well-made pump (you know, not one of those that is going to break on you right away). On a final note, this stuff smells AMAZING. I have been making my bf smell my hair every time I use it and he loves the way it smells too!
