Are you excited for my 5 Days of Giveaways kick off post? I decided Mark Hill would be the perfect starting point because these 3 products will get your hair absolutely ready for the holiday/party season! Mark Hill has created a new haircare line to me personally but it has been very popular over in the UK! Mark Hill himself is a famous celebrity hairdresser who has worked with clients such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, & even the royal family! Talk about big names right? I was super excited to try out some products from the Big Night Out line from Mark Hill which preps clean hair for styling! Keep reading to find out what I think & enter to win your own set of products!
“I’ve spent more than 15 years creating a range of hair care products that are of such high quality that they are used every day in my salon. To bring an effective, yet affordable range to the U.S. is absolutely a dream come true,” says Mark Hill in a press release.
I feel like I’ve been looking for this type of line all my life: A line designed to not only wash/clean my hair but allows me to style it right after! Normally I literally plan around events (yes, pen & paper plan!) so that I can have at least second day hair to work with. As pretty as my hair is clean & freshly washed it just doesn’t want to do anything. Like…at all. It wants to just be hair. It looks slightly frizzy, floppy, & just like tons of thick hair. No pretty wave, no working with styling tools, & definitely doesn’t look how I want it to. This line is meant to give you the freshness of clean hair with the manageability of second day hair.
I started with Mark Hill Big Night Out Get Ready to Party! Pre Styling Shampoo (because I wash my hair like most people I suppose!) & immediately liked the scent. It is very soft, slightly floral, & doesn’t linger. If you’re going to be styling your hair & adding more product to it sometimes a heavy scent can mingle & become somewhat offensive. This shampoo is quite thin & is meant to prep your hair for styling. As I had hoped, it removed buildup, cleansed my hair, & didn’t leave it feeling stripped. If you’re looking for a super rich or super softening shampoo then this isn’t it, the whole point is to create a starting line for hair styling.
Following up the shampoo is the Mark Hill Big Night Out Get the Party Started! Pre Styling Conditioner. This also comes packaged like the shampoo & has a similar scent. I find this to be quite a light conditioner which I assume is the point: detangle & moisturize without going overboard & making hair un-styleable. Right? Right. So this does a very nice job, I have very thick long hair & it helped to detangle without being too hydrating. I personally can’t go without conditioner so this was a very pleasant surprise!
The last product I have is the Mark Hill Big Night Out Only Takes a Minute! 60 Second Detox Gloss Treatment. I think this is something really special, especially with only taking one minute. This does come in a smaller tube but it also takes very little time so does that balance out? I have VERY long & VERY thick hair but it is also fine so treatments can sometimes be finicky for me. I tend to leave them in as long as possible in the shower/bath. This one minute treatment seemed to do the trick though! You use this instead of conditioner so it takes a lot less time, smells a bit stronger than the other two, & is much thicker. I tried not to use too much (I have a habit of really laying down the treatments!) & it did leave my hair shinier & it also felt conditioner while still being able to style it!
Overall I’m very happy with this trio! For me personally, this isn’t something I’d use every day but before a big event or when I have product buildup & still have things to do this is perfection! I’m really impressed, why hasn’t anyone else come out with this type of invention? This would have been so amazing back when I was a cheerleader or for proms! Even better? You can purchase this line (& other Mark Hill lines, he has quite a few I hope to try!) from Walgreens! How awesome is that?
