Fall 2014 Hair Trends with Dove


Let’s change it up a bit today and talk about hair. It’s your most important accessory, really, since you wear it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Good hair day or bad hair day.

I’ll readily admit that I am not an expert when it comes to hair. I normally wear mine in its natural state: air-dried 75% of the way and then blasted with the hair dryer.  However, I was offered the opportunity to try out Dove’s Pure Care Dry Oil products, and I already use and love Dove’s body wash, so I figured it was worth a shot.

Turns out it was a game changer decision after just one shower! I received the shampoo, conditioner, and the nourishing treatment to try, and I loved how silky smooth my hair looked. It also adds major shine without grease, which is a big concern over here, because who wants to deal with that?

In order to demonstrate how great I think these products work, I put my freshly washed and conditioned hair up against some Fall 2014 runway looks.

fauxbangsFaux Bangs:

I started growing out my bangs about a year ago, and while 90% of the time I am SO GLAD that I did, I still miss them now and then. Well, with the perfectly glossy hair that I obtained after using the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil products, I can easily change up my part and swipe some hair over (smoothed over with the Dove Dry Oil Moisturizing Treatment and secure with a bobby pin) for a faux bang look.

Waaaaay easier than it looks, I promise. I loved this pretty piecy ponytail look from the Fendi runway show and tried to recreate it using my limited skills. I actually just played around with pulling two different sections back and securing them with a tiny elastic (I used these) and a bobby pin. You could hide the bobby pin for a sleek look, but I liked how it looked (plus my pulled back “bangs” weren’t long enough).

Once secured, just cross those two sections over each other and secure with another elastic. Perfect pony!

Probably the hardest one of the three, but totally doable! I just started at my part and took three small sections and started braiding them down. As you move the sections around (make sure to always move the pieces under – towards your face – to create the raised look), grab some new hair and incorporate it into the braid. Tie off with an elastic whenever you feel like it. Voila!


I’d definitely recommend that you all give the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil products a try! I loved them and will be continuing to use them! Dove Hair is daring women everywhere to try Dove Pure Care Dry Oil, risk-free now through December 31, 2014.

You can even buy them at Target (or here online)! Sneak a sweater (this one maybe) into your basket while you are at it. How perfect and easy is that?

    Your hair looks AMAZING in these photos. I have more shampoo than I know what to do with right now, but I might give the nourishing treatment a go. My hair is so sad and dry.

  • I especially love the braid on you!! So pretty and bohemian! I’ve been meaning to try this conditioner because I heard great things about it!

    • Thanks so much, Sara! I love the braid, just as much as I love this shampoo/conditioner set!

    Enjoyed your post! All the hairstyles looked great on you. I’m with you on au naturel hair styling. Me, I’m just lazy. Straight or a simple ponytail. You inspired me to try the faux bangs look, and I liked how it looked on me. Thanks. I have tried and do like Dove’s hair products; but haven’t tried this line yet. Could you give an update in a couple of weeks? Appreciate it : )

    • Cris! Thanks so much! That’s so sweet of you, and I’m so glad you tried the bangs look! I’m still using this shampoo/conditioner every day, and my hair is still super soft and shiny. I’m sold! :)
