i’m not super into beauty products like some girls i know. i tend to keep it pretty simple in the hair department. recently, i have been looking to mix it up a little bit and try a more feminine hairstyle and maybe – just maybe, be able to run my fingers through my hair.
so when pantene approached me and sent me some samples of their new ultimate 10 collection i was open to giving it a try. i ended up liking the bb cream and asked my friend nicole to use it to create a hair style we could share on the blog with you all.
below nicole is going to walk you through the step-by- step on how to create the style…
“Bri already has so much natural texture and movement in her hair. To create the controlled yet uncontrolled look we wanted, I had to remove it by brushing it out. Clean slate! Once smoothed out, I applied a small amount of the Pantene Ultimate 10 BB Creme to her dry hair in the same size sections as I was going to curl it. This helped smooth it further with a bit of shine. To achieve the “beachy” waves I wrapped a 1-2 inch section of hair around a big barreled iron (we used a 1.5″.) The product held the curls with a soft and supple shape. It gave shine and hold at the same time. In turn, this also made it very easy to create the beautiful twisted waterfall braid across the back of her hair. It tamed fly always without weighing it down. I also wanted to see how this product worked on wet hair, so I blew dry her bangs with a round brush. Again great results! Smooth, shiny, and workable hold. Over-all this product left Bri’s hair looking smooth, feeling soft….and allowed me to create natural fun waves with that summery waterfall braid.” –nicole
how to get the look:
- start with clean, dry and brushed hair.
- apply pantene ultimate 10 bb creme in sections the same size as you’re preparing to curl (approx. 1-2″ in size.)
- curl the hair in sections by wrapping around the outside of the curling iron barrell and holding for a couple seconds. allow the curl to cool in your hand before releasing for added hold.
- finger-comb the waves to tousle for a less perfect and more beachy and natural look.
we then added a twisted waterfall braid for interest. you could pin half up, pull back the twisted sides or braid (and maybe next time we will do a braid tutorial?)
girliness achieved. now go and conquer!
