Recognize this blast from the past?

Herbal Essences Print Ad Win a years worth of hair products and the chance to be the Herbal Essences Yes, Yes, Yes woman!

Non? Okay, maybe you need to see this, then:

It’s a brand new ad—but it’s a total throwback to the classic Herbal Essences hair commercials of the 1990s. You know that woman. She gets really, um, “excited” about washing her hair. (Best.Beauty campaign.Ever.)

And now, I hope YOU’RE going to get excited, because…

You could be the new Herbal Essences “Yes, Yes, Yes” woman!

That’s right—Herbal Essences is looking for the next “Yes, Yes, Yes” woman and they’re doing it right here on BEAUTY EDITOR! (How cool is that?!)

What does it mean to be a “Yes, Yes, Yes” woman? Well, you don’t have to be like the lady in the ad that uses the products on an airplane… although if you did, I’m sure the Herbal Essences people would be seriously impressed.

Charles Baker Strahan 225x300 Win a years worth of hair products and the chance to be the Herbal Essences Yes, Yes, Yes woman!It’s more about your beauty attitude.

I asked one of my favourite famous hairstylists, Charles Baker Strahan (who is also the celeb stylist for Herbal Essences) how he would describe the “Yes, Yes, Yes” woman and here’s what he said:

“She’s fun, she’s confident, and she’s not afraid to try different things—whether it’s with her hair or in her life overall. She may take inspiration from fashion and pop culture, but at the same time she has a sense of humour and doesn’t take the trends too seriously. It’s more about how the way her look makes her feel.”

Then he paused for a minute, and added:

“She’s the kind of girl who, when driving in her car or walking to work, will be singing out loud to her music and having a movie moment in her mind.”

Do you do that? I totally do that. (Sometimes it involves dancing, too.) Plus if you’re a BEAUTY EDITOR regular, then you’re probably a lot like me. We love beauty and we’ve got a sense of adventure about it… but at the end of the day it’s all about having fun and feeling good!

Now, a quick word about WHY this is all happening…

The Herbal Essences Shine and Smooth collections are back!

The “Yes, Yes, Yes” woman search is happening in tandem with the re-introduction of two classic Herbal Essences collections from the 1990s. The shampoo and conditioner in the Shine Collection are formulated with an infused blend of chamomile, aloe vera and passion flowers that, when used together, make hair look silky and shiny:

Herbal Essences Shine Win a years worth of hair products and the chance to be the Herbal Essences Yes, Yes, Yes woman!Meanwhile, the Smooth Collection features an infused blend of rose hips, vitamin E and jojoba extracts—and when you use the shampoo and conditioner together, they deliver hair that’s soft and smooth:

Herbal Essences Smooth Win a years worth of hair products and the chance to be the Herbal Essences Yes, Yes, Yes woman!

Both make you naturally beautiful, both smell incredible and this time around, the shampoos are silicone-free and the conditioners sulfate-free. How on-trend is that?!

Speaking of trends, Charles says this collection is the PERFECT prep for getting that ’90s supermodel big-hair look (think: Cindy Crawford).

How to make your hair look like a ’90s supermodel

1. Shampoo and condition with the Shine Collection (if you have fine hair that needs volume) or the Smooth Collection (if you have a naturally wavy or curlier texture).

2. While your hair is still wet, take a golf-ball sized amount of mousse, such as Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Mousse and emulsify it between your palms before rubbing your scalp with your fingertips. Drag any excess product through the lengths of the hair.

3. Blow-dry your hair upside-down until it’s about 90 per cent dry.

4. Using a round boar-bristle brush and working in sections, blow-dry your hair towards your face. Once each section has dried, roll the hair in the brush all the way up to the roots and leave the brush in to set while it cools. (It’s a good idea to have at least two or three round brushes so that you can leave at least one in while you move on to the next section.) You can also give each section a shot of cold air with the dryer.

5. Once all the sections are dry and the brushes are removed, flip your hair upside-down and mist with a volumizing hairspray, such as Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Hairspray.

6. To really play up your ’90s style, back-comb the area at the crown.

7. Shout “Yes, Yes, Yes!” while admiring your new look.

Ta-da! Here’s Herbal Essences celebrity spokesperson Nicole Scherzinger demonstrating. (Or “doin’ the Herbal,” as they say…)

Trying hair products is one of my hobbies!!!

I should be the Herbal Essences Yes woman because I like to try products and I will flip my Hair for this :) I will sing for it to but maybe not very good singing but I will try. :)


Monday, March 18/2013 at 6:50 pm

I am still so in love with herbal essence. I have tried lots of hair products from many different brands, and I have always gone back to herbal essences because it makes my hair feel the best. I’m also a hair flip addict, perfect for some “yes Yes YES!”

It needs a change.

I love the smell of the shampoo!!


Tuesday, March 19/2013 at 7:15 pm

I remember using these products since I was in middle school. I used to love the way they made my hair smell! Then one day I noticed they changed their packaging and reformulated everything, and it was all so different. I am glad they brought back the old school herbal essence, it is very nostalgic for me:)

Wednesday, March 20/2013 at 12:45 pm

I have a hair obsession and when I mean obsession, I don’t mean that I collect locks from my friends or anything. Simply, put I love my hair. I own more hair products than shoes and blue jeans combined and I can’t stop myself from wanting more everytime I walk in the store… Do you really need more Herbal shampoos, Liz? YES! Abso-freakin-loootly I do! The strangest part is that I’m not very high maintenance about the style of my hair, simply the products that go into it. My hair must feel awesome after I get out of the shower and there is no sense in curling it or straightening it because i am just going to twist it through my fingers all day long anyway. I once had a teacher tell me that if I continued to play with my hair that I would go bald. Still not bald. Winning!


Wednesday, March 20/2013 at 1:26 pm

I really want to win because these are really good series of shampoo and balsam. Both of them smell good and I have never won in a contest like this before and you give it away so I don’t think I need symphaty to win because that is just wrong.

I have used your products back in the 70′s, loved them then and I still do now. So, I guess that qualifies me a as Yes, Yes, Yes, Woman! I am now a Silver Fox and I love it!! With all of the products that you now offer I have everything I need to make sure I look the best I can and I make sure I do! You not only have changed the life of my hair, you have made sure that I look the best I can because I have all the tools to do so! So, Yes, Yes, Yes!!

I was too young to remember what the original collections were like on my hair, but I remembered the infamous smell and the bottles. When I went to purchase them last week, all my childhood memories flooded back!!! And I couldn’t believe the difference in my hair. Not only does it smell amazing, but it looks amazing! It has taken me years to find a product like this, and I hope you never discontinue it again! It definitely has me saying YES, YES, YESSSSS!!! (Now that I’m old enough to!!!) ;)


Wednesday, March 20/2013 at 4:18 pm

Yes Yes Yes is what I say every day…..this is the only shampoo and conditioner I use. Winning this would be very awesome. Good Luck to everyone. Yes!!! Yes!!! Yes!!!

Ashley Black

People often comment on how they like the colour and length of my hair so whenever I feel my hair getting too dry or unhealthy-looking, I make sure to wash and condition with Herbal Essences. To be honest, I like the compliments on my hair so I try really hard to keep it in top shape. (; My favourite Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditionner is Hello Hydration. Smells so good and makes my hair soft! Yes, yes, yes!! ♥

Thursday, March 21/2013 at 6:09 pm

I have been pushing them to bring back the original Herbal Essences since they discontinued them. Can’t wait to use them again.

I used herbal essence all the time back in the day! I’m talking the original formula, and loved it. It was the best shampoo on the market. Made my hair look and feel luxurious. I would love to say Yes again….

Friday, March 22/2013 at 12:55 pm

As a gal who is completely hopeless at styling her own hair, it’s kind of my dream to be a model for a day and have professionals work their magic on me. To go from plain Jane to Herbal Essences cover girl…can’t even imagine how awesome that would be!

With a great attitude and a smile on my face I have found that I can inspire others to be happy and smile as well. I have learned to lighten the mood of any tense situation with simple humor and laughter. I am care-free and confident every day which is exemplified by how I take care of myself, keep myself healthy and glowing, and I love to help others feel the same! To new experiences, opportunities, and challenges in life, I say Yes! Yes! Yes! :)


Friday, March 22/2013 at 2:51 pm

As an adventurer and life enthusiast, I challenge myself in life and style alike. I have been known to spontaneously dance everywhere from Jingshan park (Gathered quite a crowd.. Yikes!), the soccer field during a game or while perched on the back of a camel trekking through the Sahara. My hair has an adventurous and spontaneous side (Sigh..) so it inspires me to experiment with different products and styles. When I successfully get my mane to work with me and my active lifestyle, it’s time to celebrate! ..I’m ready to try that “Yes, Yes, Yes” hair because I am truly the, “Yes, Yes, Yes” kind of woman :-D

I should be the next Herbal Essences girl because nothing shapes a day like a good hair day


Lisa Harkness
Sunday, March 24/2013 at 7:35 pm

I should be the YES! girl because I have beautiful natural curly hair that I just let go wild with the smooth collection. I am not ethnic, but my hair falls into an ethnic category somehow…even as my parents had straight hair. When I was a kid, it was the only thing that would take the frizz out of my curls. When it went away, I didn’t know what to do! I went years without this and frizz went crazy and took over my curls. It was actually mortifying cause I would get made fun of for it. Finally, I found that totally twisted worked almost as well as the smooth collection, but not as well. When this finally came back out, I ran upstairs to my fiance and screamed about it. He didn’t know what to think. When I washed my hair with it, he told me my hair had never looked better and that the smell was goddess like LOL and he HATES scents. I do not straighten it or try to tame it because that is a task that will never end, but work with it and the smooth collection just lets me wash and go. I’ve gotten so many compliments since I started using this again and the ladies I work with are talking about getting perms cause how much they love my natural hair. I am also a very natural person. I believe I should be the yes girl!

Tuesday, March 26/2013 at 12:16 am

I should be the Herbal Essences “Yes, Yes, Yes” woman because I do say yes yes, yes, yes to good products that make my hair look great.


Tuesday, March 26/2013 at 4:24 am

The products make my hair more manageable and my hair smells divine. I’d like to be the Herbal Essences “Yes, Yes, Yes” woman who wins a personalized hair consultation AND those great products, and I’d like my 15 minutes of fame.


Tuesday, March 26/2013 at 4:41 pm

I used herbal essences as a young teen and was obsessed with the smell! I still use herbal essences and usually buy the hello hydration (blue bottles) and the volume boost (orange bottles). I still love the smell of the new line, and find that it does not dry out my long hair (with blonde highlights). I wash my hair quite frequently (almost every day) and this always works! I have spent alot of money on herbal essences products so it would be a nice reward to win for my brand loyalty!


Grace Park
Tuesday, March 26/2013 at 10:57 pm

I’m a walking Herbal Essence by day and night.
My hair defines me. It is true what they say, a bad hair day leaves a girl having a bad day. However, after a nice wash using the pink lily and asian silk, it leaves me feeling in style and gorgeous! When I feel good because I look good, nothing gets in my way to tackle a challenging day at work or a tough boot camp at the gym!


Wednesday, March 27/2013 at 2:10 pm

Because I’d rather stay in on a Friday night and wash my hair. ;)


Wednesday, March 27/2013 at 2:19 pm

I think I should win because i am the everyday girl next door that enjoys her showers! I love the “yes yes yes” moment that yummy smelling hair products evoke in the shower!


Ruby B
Wednesday, March 27/2013 at 3:31 pm

I am that yes,yes, yes woman … I like to fuss with my hair but I also like to just let it be and often I have been complimented on how healthy my hair is.

My tip .. work with it as much as you work against it! And yes, I sing in the car, in the shower and sometimes to my dog!

I have been know to sit in the hairdresser/makeup stylists’ chair and let them go to town and create whatever they think will make me look like a knockout.

And of course … makeup, clothes & accessories are all about having fun! I mean how serious can you really look with magenta lipstick on?

I’m a working Mom with two kids, but I still take care with my looks and most of all my long hair. I love the smell of this shampoo (YES!) that it’s silicone free (YES!) and sulfate free (YES!) that to me makes these products a winner.

I should be a “yes, yes, yes” woman because want 15 minutes of fame (Ok, not really me but it would definelty be FUN)! I REALLY need to be treated to a personalized hair consultation with celebrity stylist, Charles Baker Strahan! My hair is a joke (insert “ha, ha” here)! I don’t have thick hair (think and brutal) and my colour is pathetic! My husband and daughter think I look better with a HAT on then when I spend any amount of time taming my mane! Please, please pick me! My hair is screaming “YES!”, we can’t stand what she is doing to us (or NOT doing) xoxo


Sunday, March 31/2013 at 12:12 am

I may be 41 and the mom to two sets of young twins but I consider myself to be fab, fun and fashion-forward! I would love to say “YES, YES, YES” to trying all of these terrific products from I brand I already use and love and then spread the word about the lush, luscious locks I was left with!

I’ve always been a YES YES YES girl, but lately my hair has been a big hot mess of NO NO NO!!! Not only would a set of Shine & Smooth Herbal Essences products make me say YAY YAY YAY (!!!) but a hair consultation with Charles Baker Strahan is definitely the only thing making me say WOO WOO WOOOOO!!! Cannot wait to see my hair transformation & show my fellow beauties on! PICK ME! XO


Monday, April 1/2013 at 1:26 am

I just love Herbal essences, smells really amazing, and I honestly I would like to be the winner, I say >YES< ! My best wishes ~


Friday, April 5/2013 at 11:07 pm

I think I should be the next “Yes, yes, yes” woman because I have long hair, don’t care!


Sunday, April 7/2013 at 2:46 pm

I think I’d be a great “Yes, Yes, Yes” woman because when it comes to how I look, I’m up for anything! I like having fun with my clothes, makeup, and especially my hair. I’ve let it grow halfway down my back and chopped it into an ultra-short pixie and it’s been everything from blond to black (with stints in weird colours like blue and burgundy). Life is too short to be bored!

When I first tried the Herbal Essences rose-based shampoo and conditioner, I fell in love immediately. When it was discontinued, I snatched up as many bottles as I could so I could keep my hair feeling soft and looking shiny. I practically shed tears over the dregs of that last bottle! So glad it’s back. I’ll be grabbing it the first time I see it back in stores.


Sunday, April 7/2013 at 9:05 pm

Because I haven’t tried it yet, and if this one doesn’t work then I will have really tried them all


Friday, April 12/2013 at 10:32 pm
