Are you sitting down? Yes? Okay, good.

You are looking at the newest face of Pantene‘s Aqua Light campaign.

(Oh, there goes the heart-beating thing again.)

Starting today, if you live in North America, you might just be seeing me on your television (35+ networks!) for the next few months.


I’ve had 5 months to prepare for this, and yet, I’m still speechless. Can you believe this? I can’t believe this.

The month of March is going to be crazy for me, with lots of super cool things planned with the Pantene team, including taking over Pantene’s Facebook and Twitter pages, and a series of Hair Thursday posts about my experience shooting a national hair commercial. (Holy crap, it was insane, and I promise to not spare a detail.)

In the meantime, here’s the commercial.

(This is the spot that is playing in Canada, and there is a another spot playing in America as well.)

If you need me today, I’ll be staring at the television set hoping to catch a glimpse of some swishing action.

    TEARS!! I couldn’t watch the video on my phone so I had to run upstairs to my computer. You and your hair look amazing!! And I was JUST talking to you about how I use Pantene!! You must have been DYING this whole time. I can’t imagine how exciting this must have been for you, but you deserve it. You and your hair! I’m going to call my husband at work right now! “CAN I CALL ‘EM OR WHAT??” I’ll never forget the day I found your blog looking for a tutorial for curling my hair and I found the video of you when you had D video you. I knew then you were a star! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!! :-)
