Holiday Hair Inspiration + a Quick Giveaway

Happy Day-After-Christmas, friends! We're still in Virginia until Saturday, but after that Rob and I have plans for a quiet and romantic New Year's Eve dinner at Fogo de Chao in Minneapolis. I'm really looking forward to getting dressed up and spending our last unmarried NYE together. In 2014, we'll be Mr. and Mrs. Peterson! I'm planning to put on a fancy dress, some heels, and do something really fun with my hair.

I'm not too much of an up-do lady, although I love an elegant up-do for really special events, I usually show up to a holiday party with my normal hair--curled, but maybe with a bit more volume than usual. I'm a fan of vintage styles, and really love the whole victory roll look (as you can see here). For our New Year's Eve dinner, I want to try something similar to that, but maybe a bit less costume-y. Lucky for me, Pantene sent a huge box of awesome products to help make my holiday hair styling a breeze.
