NEW Crest 3D White Whitestrips: Whiter & Stronger


When Crest reps reached out to me with news of the NEW Crest 3D White Whitestrips + Therapy, I was more than my usual "Smiles4Miles". For starters, I have had the pleasure of attending three other Crest events (see below) over the years and I cherish and protect my smile (I only have 1 cup of coffee a day and was looking to brighten my smile), but tend to be cautious of damage to my tooth enamel. I got lucky not to need braces as a child, (good thing too, as I was a rambunctious tomboy growing up and surely would've removed them with pliers) but always take great care of my teeth and gums. No need to worry with these new strips from Crest, they sent me a press kit and I started testing (I have strips in my mouth as I type). It's been a while since I tried whitening strips - they just wouldn't stay on well enough without slipping - so I loved how once it the 30 minutes were up, I  had to really peel my strips off - no slip grip technology. I saw a difference after just one application, means the whitening gel really got in there, a plus in my book. Day 1, with 13 more to go; ready to wreck some corneas! 😁 #Smiles4Miles


The NEW Crest 3D White Whitestrips + Therapy (SRP: $44.99) is a 2-step whitening kit that offers the same great whitening results as your favorite Whitestrips but comes with the NEW Enamel Strengthening Serum that nourishes teeth to strengthen enamel. Please see more information below:

Pamella Roland Fall 2018 show, Drybar Lead Artist Alli Webb created a voluminous, romantic look using products from the brand's professional styling collection, including the NEW Drybar Southern Belle Collection.  

Inspiration: Pamella Roland’s new collection is made up of gorgeous, rich fabrics and colors, both chic and with a little edge. We wanted the hair to compliment the beauty of the collection with just the right amount of volume and waves. The hair is romantic and voluminous and very easy for woman to recreate.


     Start by washing hair with Drybar Southern Belle Shampoo & Conditioner
     Prep wet with Drybar Southern Belle Mousse and spray from midshaft to ends for all over body
     Next apply Drybar Southern Belle Root Lifter at the roots for 99% more volume
     Using the Drybar Buttercup and Drybar Full Pint Round Brush blow dry hair, back brushing for added volume. When hair is almost dry, create a deep side part
     Next take 1-2 inch sections of dry hair at the crown and roll in Drybar High Top Rollers to set the crown for max volume. Secure with pin
     Once the hair has cooled, spray Drybar Money Maker Hair Spray all over for flexible hold. Remove the rollers and toddle
     Next, take 1-inch sections of hair and use the Drybar 3-Day Bender to create soft, romantic waves throughout the mid shaft. Leave ends out.
     To add height and lift, tease the crown with the Drybar Texas Tease Teasing Brush
     Finish the style with Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 Texturizing Spray by flipping head over, spraying all over and lifting the head back up - this creates even more piecey volume!
     Accentuate the side part by tucking hair behind ear and spraying with Drybar Money Maker Hair Spray to keep in place
