Messy Wavy Twist Hairstyle and Giveaway!

Messy Wavy Twist Hairstyle and Giveaway!

 The big day is here! Remember THIS post last week? I told you about the holiday hairstyle I was creating with Pantene products and here is the big reveal! Messy Wavy Twist


I must admit, I was a little worried about trying Pantene products because I am a cosmetologist and I tend to use salon hair products. I got to try several products from Pantene that are all geared to protecting your hair from the heat. The products I used were…


Pantene Heat Protecting Products


    • Pantene Pro-V Heat Shield Shampoo


  • Pantene Pro-V Heat Shield Conditioner



  • Pantene Silky Moisture Whip



  • Pantene Heat Protection Spray



  • Pantene Advanced+ Keratin Repair KeraGloss Oil Mist



  • Pantene Smooth Lisse Serum



  • Pantene Triple Action Volume Mousse



  • Pantene Volume Root Lifting Spray Gel



  • Pantene Shaping Hairspray Extra Strong Hold




I was really impressed with the way that these products felt in my hair! My hair was so soft! I was a little concerned that by using all of these products, my hair would be weighed down and would look greasy, but that wasn’t the case at all. I am glad that I got to try these out! If anyone needs heat protection, it is me! I have naturally curly hair, so my hair gets a lot of heat. I blow dry it, straighten it, and then use a curling wand to create loose curls or waves in my hair. I love the look, but it isn’t good on my hair at all! By using hair products made to protect my hair from the heat, I am able to continue styling my hair the way I like it without feeling like I am totally destroying my hair!


I wanted to create a perfect holiday look for the parties that I attend during this season. I don’t go anywhere formal, so I wanted something that I felt like was a little dressed up, but still had enough edge to it that I could feel casual and comfortable. To create your own messy wavy twist look, follow these directions below. Beware! There are a lot of photos of me without makeup, fresh out of the shower coming up! You may not be able to get these images out of your head.


Holiday Hair Look




1. Wash and condition your hair with the Pantene Pro-V Heat Shield shampoo and conditioner. It is so important to start with a strong foundation to work off of. If you start with great shampoo and conditioner, your hair will be much happier!


2. Put just a little bit of the Pantene Silky Moisture Whip into your damp hair. A little of this goes a long way. It makes your hair feel so soft and it smells fantastic!


3. Put the Pantene Smooth Lisse Serum through the ends of your hair. Keep this away from your scalp, or else you will start looking a little greasy. This helps protect your ends a little more while keeping your hair looking nice and smooth.


4. Next is the Pantene Triple Action Volume Mousse. Put this all over in your hair. This helps add volume to all of your hair. A lot of products that are made for volume can really dry out your hair, but this one is made to keep your hair nice and healthy so that is a total bonus.


5. Spray the Pantene Volume Root Lifting Spray Gel onto your roots and rub it in.


6. Spray a very healthy dose of Pantene Heat Protection Spray into your hair. It is so important to use heat protection spray before using any sort of heat on your hair. It helps build a barrier to keep that heat from frying your hair off.


7. (These next two photos got switched! Forgive me! Look at photo 8) Blow dry your hair and then spray the Pantene Advanced+ Keratin Repair KeraGloss Oil Mist into it.


8. (Now look at picture 7) Straighten your hair. If your hair is naturally straight, I’m totally jealous. You can skip this step!


9. Make sure to brush it out really well before curling your hair.


10. Take medium sized sections of your hair and section them off.


11. Use a curling wand to curl those sections. Leave the ends off of the wand so they will stay straight. Brush through your curls after the hair has been all curled.


12. Take two sections from the front and pull them back. Tie them around each other, creating what would be the base part of a knot. Loop the hair through 2-3 more times to make the twist a little longer.


13. Take bobby pins and pin the twist into place.


14. Check where the hair is falling and pin anywhere you may need extra support.


15. Spray your hair with Pantene Shaping Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to keep everything in place.


Now you are done! The perfect, done up look that will look effortless and amazing!

Great tutorial I love hairstyle like but my hair is very straight but looks much better with some waves in it, however I'm not sure how to achieve the look for a whole day. I've tried braiding it when it's wet and sleeping on it overnight, but the waves fall out within an hour or so.

Do you have any recommendations of products or techniques that can make the waves last all day? Is there a curling iron I should by? A styling mousse? I'm totally clueless! :p

I'm trying to avoid getting a perm since I dye my hair regularly and don't want to over fry it

I found your blog through All Things Thrifty and I clicked through on a total whim. I am terrible at hair and not fussy about make-up, BUT I love this! You look so cute and very glam. My favorite part was the step by step photo collage. Thank you for posting pictures of yourself sans make-up and without perfectly coiffed hair. It gives us non-cosmetologist, never get my hair to look like that types hope! I think I might actually attempt this style.
