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.

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!

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.
