Pantene Head-to-Head Hair Challenge

Now for a quick press update. Remember this Instagram? A few months back I was honored to serve as Glamour’s style ambassador for Pantene’s Head-to-Head Hair Challenge against two amazing ladies from Lucky and Teen Vogue. We each gave step-by-step tutorials on how to re-create our magazine’s take on a popular hair trend, and both videos are below.

The two styles I’m wearing are personal favorites (if you keep up with my blog, you know I’m all about garland braids and dramatic side parts). They’re also great in the summer when hair is damp from swimming or needs to be swept back for nights out. Enjoy!

LOFT My Girl Holiday & Insta-Takeover

I was honored when LOFT asked me to pick my favorite layering item from their winter collection and style it two different ways. I chose this cozy sherpa vest, a versatile piece that can be dressed up or dressed down depending on what look you’re aiming for.

My picks and styling tips went live on LOFT.com today as part of their My Girl Holiday campaign, and I couldn’t be more excited. Click here to take a look!

I’ll be taking over LOFT’s Instagram (@loftgirl) for the entire day today. Follow along as I snap holiday pics between blog meetings (and hopefully squeeze in a manicure at my favorite spot) in NYC!
