Plus three life lessons gleaned from Sofia!
Sofia and her entire family are proud to be partnering up with the classic American hair care line to offer one lucky fan the chance to win a trip to an upcoming Head & Shoulders ad shoot to meet the whole gang!
In between videotaped talks with entertainment news channels (which is when I snapped the great image above), Sofia made the time to chat with bloggers about the campaign. While we only had about minutes to chat, I learned a few valuable life lessons from the sweet and smart actress.
3 Life Lessons from Sofia Vergara
1. Don’t be afraid to show who you are
Not all women would be confident enough to advertise their love for Head & Shoulders. But Sofia thinks it’s important to be honest about the person she is. And while she adores high-end beauty products, she isn’t afraid to be loud and proud about her regular drugstore favorites, including Covergirl lip glosses and mascara, and yes, Head & Shoulder shampoos. In Sofia’s words “I use them (beauty products) all. And love them!”
2. Find your confidence – and flaunt it
Speaking of being confidence, I asked Sofia her secret to always appearing calm, cool and completely confident. She explained that many Latin women, including Sofia, fall in love with beauty and fashion early. She’s always loved wearing makeup, doing her hair and wearing high heels. And she’s learned what works and doesn’t work for her.
She says “what gives women self-confidence is feeling good about yourself, and sometimes that’s when you look good. Take time to experiment and learn what to do that will make you look in the mirror and say ‘My eyes look good’ or ‘My hair is perfect.’ If a women can find the clothes or makeup or hair styles that make them feel good, they appear confident – and the whole world will think that you look confident and great!”
3. Keep family close even if they are far away
With family across the globe, Sofia keeps in contact with them all via weekly chats and lots of texts. Sofia, her mom, son, cousins, aunts and nieces use their phones to keep up to date on life, loves, gossip, clothes and beauty. And it is these talks that lead to the this Head & Shoulders campaign.
Sofia’s family were excited to hear she was thinking of working with Head & Shoulders. They all started texting her images of Head & Shoulder bottles in their cabinets and showers. Sofia tells us her family has used the shampoo and conditioner “for decades in Columbia and America. It’s just always around and I know it’s a great product.”
