Holiday Travel Packing Tips from the Paul Mitchell Beauty Squad

Holiday Travel Packing Tips from the Paul Mitchell Beauty Squad

Posted by Paul Mitchell Team on Nov 22nd 2015

When heading home for the holidays, there are a few beauty supplies we simply can’t live without. No, we’re not committing to bringing our whole beauty arsenal home (becauase we want to save our dollars a new pair of kicks, not airline fees), but we certainly have some tried and true products to help us get our fave holidays looks while away from home. Take a peek into the beauty bags of some of our stylish staff below.

WENDY HERMAN, CONTENT CREATOR

Your travel destinations during the holidays: Chicago, IL and Grand Rapids, MI

Your three must-have hair products: Dry Wash® to freshen up after a long flight, Awapuhi Moisture Mist® to keep my hair and skin moisturized in the cold weather, and Awapuhi Wild Ginger® Shine Spray™  which keeps my hair soft and shiny with an amazing, clean scent.

Your must-have hair tool: Definitely the Express Ion Smooth®+ so I can keep my bangs in check. I never travel without it!

Your must-have beauty products:  Liquid makeup, primer and lip gloss and mascara.

TAYLOR DEDIEGO, WEB CONTENT WRITER

Your travel destinations during the holidays: San Francisco and Tahoe

Your three must-have hair products:  Worked Up® for bouncy curls, Dry Wash® for reviving second-day hair on lazy mornings and Awapuhi Wild Ginger® Texturizing Sea Spray® for casual, lived-in looks.

Your must-have hair tool: Express Ion Curl®  for waves and curls. Perfect for casual and fancy occasions alike!

Your must-have beauty products: Bobby pins, tinted moisturizer, mascara, eyelash curler and red lipstick.

STEPHANIE VOVES, WEB DESIGNER

Your travel destination during the holidays: Colombia

Your three must-have hair products: MirrorSmooth® Shampoo, Conditioner & High Gloss Primer  for beautifully straight and shiny hair!

Your must-have hair tool: Express Ion Dry®+.

Your must-have beauty products: Tinted Sunscreen, mascara and hair ties!

ANGELA HAUK, BRAND ADVOCATE MANAGER

Your travel destination during the holidays: South Dakota

Your three must-have hair products: Forever Blonde® Dramatic Repair® for protection before I blow dry, Super Skinny® Serum to polish any unruly flyways and Extra-Body Finishing Spray® because it's the best hairspray in the world.  

Your must-have hair tool: Express Ion Smooth®+ (in the limited edition rose gold finish!). When I'm traveling, I don't like to pack a ton of tools. I am able to style my hair straight or curly with this tool and I love the simple technique and beautiful design!

Your must-have beauty products:  Sunless tanner, blush and mascara.  

MELISSA SHAMOOILIAN, WEB DESIGNER

Your travel destination during the holidays:  Tel Aviv

Your three must-have hair products:  Forever Blonde® Dramatic Repair® (even though I don’t have blonde hair, this really rehydrates my hair that tends to get dry from my highlights), MirrorSmooth® High Gloss Primer (smells so good and makes my blow out look smoother and last longer) and MarulaOil Rare Oil Treatment (I especially love this one because I can double it up as a cuticle moisturizer to keep my nails looking great as well as my hair).

Your must-have hair tool:  Express Ion Unclipped 3-in-1. I love the three different wand sizes because I can get a variety of looks with one tool.

Your must-have beauty products:  Coconut oil (I use it for everything!),  brow gel and a nude lipstick.
