Known for her blunt fringe as much as her kooky girl-next-door characters, Zooey Deschanel has carved out quite a niche for herself in Hollywood as well as finding herself being appointed the newest ambassador for Pantene. She joins the iconic hair care brand to help support women in Australia and New Zealand donating to and benefiting from the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program.
Zooey says: “I am so excited to be part of the Pantene family in Australia and New Zealand. I am really into hair and I love experimenting with different styles. Being a ‘Pantene girl’ has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid. It is really amazing to be representing the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Collection; the products are fantastic and Pantene also supports the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program which is a wonderful cause.”
Working together with local Australian ambassadors, beauty expert Zoe Foster-Blake and leading hairstylist, Barney Martin, Deschanel will be encouraging women across the country to skip a trim and grow their hair longer and stronger to donate their ponytails.
Since Pantene Beautiful Lengths launched in September 2012, over 4,500 ponytails have been donated to the program. The Pantene Beautiful Lengths wigs are currently being distributed across Australia and New Zealand to wig libraries in need at no cost to cancer patients through Look Good…Feel Better.
“Pantene is helping to provide confidence and beautiful real-hair wigs to women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment; you can’t put a price on that,” Deschanel added. “I know Australia and New Zealand have received over 4,000 ponytails so far which will make a huge difference to many women with cancer, and I hope we can surpass that number this year.”
