Tutorial Tuesday – Use a Curling Wand

The use of curling wands can be tricky. Depending where you hold it, vertical or horizontal position or how tightly you wrap your hair around the barrel and so on can change the look and feel of your curls at the end. To end this battle with yourself, follow our tutorial to get easy curls perfect for any occasion!

You will need:

 

  1. Before you begin curling, make sure your hair is clean and dry.
  2. Prepare your hair by gently detangling it with a paddle brush or wide tooth comb.
  3. Horizontally part your hair starting at the temple and clip it out of place.
  4. Start with a vertical section of hair around an inch thick (the smaller the section the more curls you’ll have).
  5. Start wrapping your hair at the base of the barrel, and keeping a firm grip on your hair, wrap the entire section around the barrel without overlapping.
  6. Hold the tip of the section tightly around the barrel for a few seconds and release. The longer you keep your hair on the barrel the more defined your curls will be.

P.S. When you’re done with your whole head, don’t forget to run your fingers through your hair! This will give your curls a more natural look.

Spritz a shine mist to leave your hair smooth frizz-free.

Stay beautiful!

Quick Beauty Tip – Homemade Treatments for Damaged Hair

treatments-for-damaged-hairI’m obviously obsessed with beauty products and I’m not ashamed to say it – but I am also a fitness buff and fully understand and recognize the power of the natural ingredients we all have access to. So many of the delicious & nutritious things we include in our diet can also be used to make us more beautiful too! Here are a few of my favorite hair masks using all natural ingredients you can get at any grocery store!

1. Banana & Avocado: YES we are obsessed with avocados! Mash a ripe avocado and ripe banana and mix well. Apply an even layer to clean, dry hair and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and condition as usual. Your locks will be moist & shiny when you’re done! Plus, this mixture smells delicious!

2. Honey & Olive Oil: Sounds like the beginning of a salad dressing recipe – but this combo does wonders for your tresses! Combine equal parts of the two and apply from roots to tips. Secure hair in a shower cap and let it sit for 45 minutes. Shampoo lightly and condition normally afterwards. Your hair will be silky & shiny when you’re done!

3. Thyme Treatment: If you suffer from dandruff, try this – boil 8 sprigs of fresh thyme in 2 cups of water. Once rapidly boiling remove from heat and let cool. Strain and massage the leaves into your scalp. Rinse and repeat with leftover mixture in a couple days. This is a natural way to fight flakes!

Ever used a styling product only to realize that it is not what you expected? Maybe you are not using the ideal styling product for your hair type. For example, fine hair cannot be weighed down or it may look more limp and therefore needs a lightweight styling gel or hairspray. Curly and thick hair is so strong it needs products that are strong enough to manage it. Here we feature styling products for hairstyling fine, curly, thick and coarse hair types.

Fine hair can get greasy fast and because of this gals with fine hair shy away from hair oils like Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment.

Party Girl Hairstyle: Holiday Beauty

Amika Tourmaline Curler 19mm at TheBeautyPlace.com

Amika Tourmaline Curler 19mm at TheBeautyPlace.com

This year we are in love clipless curling irons. This type of curling wand creates sexy waves, prevents snags, crimp marks and the “prom” curl. It is the go-to hair tool for many top hair stylists because it heats up fast, it gets really hot, and curls last for a long while! In the picture you see the Amika Tourmaline Curler 19mm in a giraffe print. Since you curl the wand around the barrel, you can control the tightness of the curl and create countless curly hairstyles.

Thanksgiving is next week and the question trending this week is, “Who is cooking this year?” We want to ask you, “What hairstyle will you do for this holiday?” Here we feature the party girl hairstyle with the help of a clipless curling iron. Do it this holiday! Everyone will be sharing memories, jokes, great food and talking about how great you look!


Step 1:
Brush your hair and apply a hair serum or treatment like Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment to condition and protect hair from damage.
Step 2: Create a half ponytail and use a clip to hold the top half of your hair.
Step 3: Grab a 1 inch section from the loose bottom half of the ponytail.
Step 4: Start winding the section around the barrel starting from the center of the wand.
Step 5: As soon as you are finished winding the section wait 3 seconds. Turn your curling iron vertically and let the curl slip out.
Step 6: Repeat with several sections of hair.
Step 7: The curling wand we used took 10 minutes to curl our entire head!
Step 8: Finish with a flexible hold hairspray.
Step 9: Enjoy your night! Have fun!

Hair Care and Curling Iron Tips for a Glam Hairstyle

Hair Care and Curling Iron Tips for a Glam Hairstyle

Curling irons are a stylist’s tools of the trade. They can last for years, and help us alter an entire look in minutes! The holidays allow us to share with our friends and family good food, fun times, and great memories. With a simple curling iron, create a super-glam hairstyle that will take you from party to party. Let’s face it. With all the fun you are set to have your hair should match the excitement of the season and of course your cheer! Here we feature the steps for a hairstyle with body, waves, and a little va-va-voom!

Styling Tip 1: Choose a curling iron for its barrel size. Madonna loves Veronica Lake curls, and her curls look as if she used a ¾ inch or 19mm barrel. Our favorite is this zebra print curling iron. A ¾ inch or even a little smaller than that like 5/8 inch or 16mm barrel creates a loose, full curl. If you have short hair, and want a tight, bouncy curl a 3/8 inch or 13mm barrel. These tight curls can be combed through to create a retro hairstyle. For body and volume a 1 inch or 1 ¼ inch, this size barrel creates deep waves.

Styling Tip 2: Find out the heat settings of your curling wand. A heated styling tool can reach temperatures of up to 410 degrees. Unfortunately, many of us have hair that is difficult to curl or curls don’t last very long once you create curls. This is the reason for a professional curling iron that reaches such high temperatures.

Styling Tip 3:
Use a hair serum before styling. The aforementioned tip informed you a curling wand can get as hot as 410 degrees. Don’t think you need a hair serum? Do you heat up a pan without a little olive oil?

Styling Tip 4: Let’s get ready to curl! What kind of curls are you interested in? Step 1. Part your hair as desired. Step 2. Apply a hair serum like Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment, placing special attention to the ends of hair. Your ends tend to be the driest. Step 3. Turn on your curling wand and wait a few seconds. Step 4. Curl your hair in 2 inch sections starting from the front. Use a clip to keep hair you have curled in placed. Step 5. Hold the iron vertically, curl sectioned hair, and clip completed hair. Step 6. Wait about 10 minutes for your curls to cool. Comb them lightly with your fingers. Apply a finishing spray to hold.

Styling Tip 5: Consider a curling iron with a tourmaline or ceramic coated barrel. The ceramic or tourmaline technology preserves hair color and prevents frizz.

Romantic Date Night Hairstyle

Date night is the perfect time to show off your unique fashion sense while still looking gorgeous! You have chosen the perfect outfit, shoes and makeup, but still haven’t figured out your hairstyle. Your hairstyle should be romantic, fun, and easy to do (you don’t want to be late!). Sleek and smooth hair looks sexy, how about you save that hairstyle for the 3rd date. This hairstyle displays confidence and fun, and you’ll know it took you under 20 minutes to make.

Use a curling iron with a 1’’ or wider barrel to curl hair at the crown of head. If you don’t own a curling iron, or want to upgrade your current version the Bio Ionic Style Winder Rotating Styling Iron 1 ½’’ is super easy to use. The curling iron features an ergonomic design, where the barrel rotates avoiding burn accidents and weird contortions on your part. It also features different heat settings for fine hair, medium thick or thick and coarse hair. The temperature settings are very important because they assist in preventing damaged hair and split ends.

Second, once the romantic waves are done, start braiding your hair from the nape of neck. You can choose whichever braid style. Fishtail, French, or a regular old braid will work. How does it look? You can stop here or keep on going!

If you are here, you are going for the wispy knot! This very romantic chignon will keep your hair in place all night avoiding it being in your face when enjoying dinner or wherever your date full of fun takes you. Grab a few bobby pins and secure braid forming a knot. Voila! Finish with a medium-hold spray. A great little accessory to keep in your makeup bag is the Travalo Refillable Perfume Spray – Classic Pink. This smart little tool lets you refresh your fragrance without you having to carry your big bottle of perfume!

Tips on Styling Tool Use for Healthy Hair

Healthy Hair and Proper Styling Tool Use

Many of us have a love and hate relationship with our styling tools. They help us achieve straight, curly or wavy hairstyles, but since flat irons and curling wands can reach temperatures of up to 450 degrees they can easily damage our hair in under a week! Damaged hair is frizzy, dry, and with split ends. Is your mane showing signs of damage? Follow our styling tips on proper thermal styling, and display your gorgeous hair with pride.

Tip 1: A styling tool uses heat to manipulate hair and shape it, but hair is not meant to withstand 450 degrees worth of heat. Tune your flat iron to 410 degrees. At this temperature it is still really hot to wave or straighten any hair type.

Tip 2: Do you know heat sucks moisture out of hair? When hair is dry it is tight and can break easy, when hair has moisture it is flexible, and tougher to break. Think about this next time you curl or blow dry hair, and reach for a silk-infused hair serum like CHI Silk Infusion. Its alcohol-free formula will not dry out hair instead it will leave it incredibly soft. How does it protect hair from heat? It coats every hair strand with a silk ingredient that delivers strength and shine with no build-up. Another hair serum that does the same work is BioSilk Silk Therapy.

Tip 3: Unless your flat iron is a wet-to-dry iron do not iron damp hair! A sizzling sound does not mean it is working. It means your hair is frying!

Tip 4: Any styling tool that features ceramic, tourmaline or ionic technology is perfect. These really smooth surfaces are usually smoothed in a way that prevents frizz and damage.

Tip 5: Give your hair a break a day or two. Second day hair still looks great!

Follow all of these tips so you can use your flat iron guilt-free! If you are looking for styling products to create any look go to TheBeautyPlace.com and find the beauty industry’s top brands at affordable prices!
