I couldn’t be more excited to partner with the great people at ULTA Beauty to help promote their Love Your Hair campaign.
What is Love Your Hair you say? Well, allow me to enlighten you. It is a 21-day celebration of hair, people, HAIR! And since I am fluent in hair, you can see how this excites me greatly.
We girls can sometimes be hard on our hair. Admit it, you have been known from time to time to neglect your hair. Maybe you went to work with wet hair, maybe you threw a hat on because you are running late, maybe you even allowed yourself to be in public in a NOT so pretty pony… c’mon, you’re guilty, and I’m guilty. We all are. We also can be downright ugly to our hair by bashing the hair the we were blessed with, when we should be embracing it!
During these fine 21 days of hair celebration, ULTA Beauty will be highlighting different “Beauty Steals™” each day that will be available at a discounted price (for that day only). Make sure you check in daily to get the best deals! I was extremely lucky to get to sample every “Beauty Steal” that will be highlighted, and I have some new found MUST haves for all of you ladies out there. The Love Your Hair celebration will also include events, demos and prizes.
I challenge you to take the ULTA Beauty hair pledge with me, and pledge to LOVE your hair.
Now join in with me, what do you pledge to do?
Wake up 10 minutes earlier to style that beehive? Not go to work with wet hair? Not cut your own bangs? (I am talking to you Erin). Use a heat protectant with your straightener EVERYDAY?
Whatever your pledge may be, if you tweet it along with the hashtag #ULTAhairpledge you will be entered to win free blowouts for a YEAR! You can see sample pledges, more info, and other ways to enter HERE.
ANNND, there is more.
I will be giving away a $100 gift card! All you need to do is leave your hair pledge in the comments or let me know you tweeted it. Easy right?
I had a little too much fun by myself (and my sidekick Sadie of course) sampling out all of the ULTA beauty steals. In honor of the wedding season that is upon us, I decided to showcase some different and easy DIY ways that you could wear your hair to a summer wedding (and yes, tutorials will be coming in following posts in honor of this joyous hair occasion!)
Here are some of my end results:
I used the following products to achieve these looks, with the most crucial being the Kenra volume hairspray-I’m Obsessed. New fav. Link below.
Abba Volume Conditioner
Big Sexy Hair-Root Pump (adds texture and volume, goes on towel dried hair)
CHI 44 Iron Guard (helps protect your hair from heat styling, a necessity)
Osis Dust It (adds major volume, essential for poofing-if you find it normally difficult)
Dare I say that I have been turned into a Kenra Hairspray advocate? I dare.
It is amazing, I love the fine mist and incredible hold. I have always been a fan of items 2, 3, & 4 above, but now also enjoy the all natural Abba line of shampoo and conditioner.
So girls, join with me and take the ULTA Beauty hair pledge. Your hair will thank you!! Don’t forget to check out ULTA’s 21 days of Loving Your Hair, and tweet your #ULTAhairpledge for a chance to win free blowouts for a year, and a $100 gift card!!
