Naturally wavy tips
December 11, 2015
If your hair is straight and lifeless, you probably envy people with natural waves. They don’t have to do anything at all and they have the volume and body that you don’t. If getting a perm isn’t for you and you don’t want to put extra products into your hair, there are a few really simple ways you can get some natural waves going.
The most common method is to use curlers. Roll up your hair into curlers when it’s wet, let it dry completely, unroll, and then comb out. If you’re going to use curlers, try to avoid using conditioner when you’re washing your hair. Conditioner softens your hair and this makes it much easier for it to fall out of the curlers. Hold the curlers in place with bobby pins and be gentle when you’re pulling them out or you may break hairs.
An even simpler method that might work to get some waves rolling is to spray your hair with salt water. Put salt water in a spray bottle and spray your hair everywhere. Once it’s wet, use the blow dryer to dry it. While drying, grab sections of your hair and twist. Again, be gentle when you’re twisting.
The Braid Method
What works really well for some hair types is to sleep with your hair braided. If your hair is the right type, you’ll wake up in the morning with natural waves. There’s no easier method than that! Some people find that one long braid works best, while others tie up their hair into two tight French braids. It all depends on your hair type, so try both methods and see what works best.
Another braiding method that works well for some people is to braid it after your shower. While it’s still wet, braid it into one tight braid. Use a blow dryer to dry it, and then undo it. Don’t comb it out but just run your fingers through it. For even more waves, you can try tying your braid into a bun.
When you’re using either of these braiding methods, the tighter you make the braid, the tighter the curls will be. If you’re hair has a little bit of natural wave or you just want less curling, make a bigger, looser braid.
Fight the Moisture
Moisture has a serious effect on your hair as well. Usually, moisture will take your hair back to its natural state, whether straight or wavy. For some people, a little bit of moisture makes their hair wavier. A good way to control moisture is to tie it up in a towel after you shower and palm squeeze the moisture out. This gets rid of the excess while keeping some moisture there.
Everybody’s hair is different, so try out a couple of the methods mentioned above and see what works best for you.
The Flat Iron Method
One of the other cool tricks that you can use to produce waves is to use your flat iron. You will want to use your flat iron just like its a curling iron. Just wrap your hair around the hot plate of your flat iron and clamp it down on your hair. This gives your hair a really cool wavy look that I just love.
In the future, I will do a tutorial video on how to produce these wavy curls with your hair straightener, but in the meantime just do some experimenting and I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the types of looks that you can create.
My favorite tool for this purpose is the Solia Flat Iron because of the 1 inch plates. Before you buy a solia flat iron, be sure to read my complete and honest review of this product.
Curling Iron Mistakes
December 7, 2015
Are You Making These 5 Mistakes with Your Curling Iron?
Adding a few curls can be a simple and effective way to give your hair a little extra zing, even if your hair happens to be short. If you don’t use a curling iron every day, it can get tricky. Here are five common mistakes, and how to fix them:
- A too-large or too-small barrel
Curling irons come in a range of sizes from ⅜ inch to 2 inches. If you have short hair, or if you want tight ringlets, choose a curling iron with a barrel smaller than an inch. For larger curls, go with a curling iron with a 1.25 or 1.5 inch barrel. Use a 2 inch barrel to curl the ends of your hair or for soft waves.
- Curling too much hair at once
You should always section your hair with clips, especially if you’re hair happens to be particularly thick. Doing this will ensure that you don’t miss any spots. It will also keep the rest of your hair out of the way while you focus on each section. Bonus trick: Start with hair near the nape of your neck and work your way up.
- Setting the iron too hot
Too much heat can damage your hair, so it’s important to use the least amount of heat you can while creating the curl. Hair that is fine, fragile, or thin is especially prone to damage, making it especially crucial to use the lowest setting available. Steer clear of irons that have only one setting in favor of an iron with several settings. For the same reason, you should minimize the time your hair is on the barrel. For some people, a few seconds per section is plenty. Experiment with lower temperatures and shorter exposure times to find the best temperature and time to protect your hair from damage while getting a beautiful curl.
- Going the wrong direction
Curl your hair out and away from your face, in the direction of the side you’re working on. So if you’re curling your hair on the right, curl to the right, and on the left, curl to the left.
- Curling your hair when it’s wet
Wet hair is far more prone to damage by heat than dry hair. Even hair that is barely damp will sustain some degree of damage. Make sure your hair is completely dry before curling. It’s best if you can air dry it, but if you’re in a hurry, you can finish it off with a blow dryer. Some people get better results if they don’t wash their hair for a day, while others prefer to curl their hair when it is freshly washed. Experiment to determine which method gives you the best results.

December 4, 2015
If you love vintage things, then you probably own a set of hot rollers. Well things have changed and hot rollers have become just as advanced as modern day curling wands and irons. Many people believe that hot rollers will only give you those Shirley Temple ringlets, think again. You can use them to give you beach waves, cute loose curls, and everything in between. They work well to touch up your blowouts, and much more. These are the tools that every lady or guy needs to have in their arsenal.

Sedu Revolution Clipless Curling Iron Review
December 4, 2015
The best part of the Sedu Curling Iron is that it is as revolutionary as its name implies. It weighs almost nothing, making it feel as though I am holding a magic wand that lets me get rid of bad hair days forever. It’s also so simple to use, there aren’t a bunch of complicated instructions to try to figure out. I can find the perfect setting for my hair and get the perfect style all on my own.
It also has a super-comfy grip and a heat resistant covering. This makes it safe for use by amateurs at home. It heats up fast, so I only have to wait a few minutes before I can start getting the perfect curl.
I especially love that it’s clipless. I don’t have to worry about the clip when styling my hair, I can just wrap my hair around the hot barrel, and slide it right off when I’m ready. With regular curling irons, the clip means curling my hair requires more precise motions. Without the clip, I can get perfect waves and curls anytime I want them. The curls stay in place much longer than with many other irons, so my style stays in place all day long.
The Sedu Revolution Clipless Curling Iron is not without its downsides, however. One of the biggest is the temperature. Its maximum heat setting is very high, potentially causing burns. If you’re on the highest setting, you have to be extra careful to avoid being burned. Fortunately, the iron has adjustable heat, just be careful that you use the right setting.
The Sedu curling iron has a heat-resistant grip, but not a heat-resistant carrier, so you may want to invest in a heat-resistant pouch so that you can put it away when you finish with it. Otherwise, you will have to wait for it to cool before you can do anything with it. This becomes potentially more of an issue if you have limited bathroom counter space or if you travel a lot.
The Sedu comes with a really long cord, which could be a positive or a negative, depending on your needs. If you need more reach, it could be good. If you don’t, it could be a bit of a hassle.
Finally, the Sedu curling iron is a bit more expensive than many other curling irons, though it is a great value. Considering the quality of curl you can achieve with this iron, consider the cost to be an investment in yourself. See how it compares to other curling irons.
How to curl short hair
December 2, 2015
Curled short hair is currently one of the biggest trends. Curls and volume and life to short hair. They can be a great break from your usual straight hair daily look and they can transform your appearance in greatly unimaginable ways.
Steps in Curling your Hair
- Have the right equipment to avoid discomforts and getting burned. A curling iron may get too hot and yet you are working close to your skin.
- Clean, dry and straighten your hair. Using a curling iron on wet hair can cause damage. You can add some styling gel or wax to help set your hair. Follow this by spritzing your hair with a heat protection spray before commencing to prevent the hair from becoming dry and frazzled. Avoid using hair sprays before curling since doing this will damage your hair.
- Separate your hair into sections using a small comb and pin the sections using salon clips. The thicker your hair is, the more the sections you will need. Moreover, if you want large curls, you will need to use larger layers than if you will need small and medium sized curls. For shorter hair, a 1 to 2 inch section is okay to produce medium curls. If you aim for a more natural look, then section your hair into different sizes.
- Take a section of hair and wrap it around the curling iron. Hold the iron from your face and roll the curl away from your face towards the back of your head. You can alternate between ironing your hair towards and away from your face for a more natural look.
- The width of the curling iron should depend on the length of your hair. The shorter the hair, the thinner the curing iron should be so that you can wrap the sections of hair around the iron and produce fantastic results.
- Leave the ends of your hair straight so that they can still have a bit of length and also to prevent the curls from sticking out from your head.
- Hold the hair wrapped around the wand for about 8 seconds to get tighter curls and for about 5 seconds for loose curls.
- If you opted for loose curls, spritz the curls with hairspray to hold its shape. If you opted for tighter curls, allow the curls to relax for a few minutes before spraying.
- Gently pull the curls apart with your fingers to get rid of the ringlet look and re-curl any curls that may have fallen out.
- Backcomb the roots while holding the crown area of your hair near the part. This will help in adding volume to your hair.
- Spray you hair one last time to hold the finished look in place.
Short hair is easier to maintain and work on. Just be careful not to bring the curling iron too close to your scalp and do not curl the hair ends as this makes the hair to appear over-curled. Curled hair gives you a new and transformative look, but only if done well.
The Hot Tools Spring Iron Curling Iron Review
December 2, 2015
If you have ever wanted those nice bouncing curls like I have, you want a great curling iron that won’t damage your hair, but will still give you the most for the price. The Spring Iron will give you the features of most other similar tools, but it is a tad more expensive as well. It’s more versatile for many hair types, and it will give you those long lasting curls that you see in the movies.
My own hairstylist has recommended using any Hot Tools spring iron, simply because of the multi-level heat control and the flexibility. There is a lot that goes into having a great curling iron, such as trying to figure out if you plan to use it daily, or only on special occasions, and what type of hair is it best for. If you are like me, then you want to have a great professional type of spring iron that is used in a salon by trained hair stylists?
When it comes to performance, Hot Tools Spring Irons are the best not only because of the power cord swivel action, which is a plus, but because of the powerful spring clamp and 10 heat settings. How do the Hot Tools Spring Irons measure up? Keep reading.
All of the Hot Tools Spring Irons will come with a one year warranty and weigh less than 2 lbs. They have solid circuitry, and have an 85W capacity, not to mention the Pulse Technology that comes with it. What’s even better is that it heats up quickly for fast use and will maintain a constant, even heat from super hot to low while your hair is being styled, plus it has a pilot light to let you know when it is on.
The Hot Tools Spring Iron will heat at super high at 428°F and has a super soft grip that allows for secure and comfortable handling. What I thought was amazing, is the fact that the barrel is actually 24k gold plated and it has an extra long thumb grip. It does have a great foldaway stand, and it has the Gets Hot… Stays Hot mechanism that gives it the high performance standards. Since springs tend to wear out quickly after a lot of use, this spring iron comes with 2 replacement springs for the high performance spring clamp.
The on and off switches are actually separated to help allow the rheostat control memorize your preferred heat setting. To keep your fingers from being burned constantly, there is a cool tip that is added to keep your fingers safe. Not to mention the 8 foot heavy duty cord. Now lets get to the Pro’s and Con’s.
- Amazing High Performance.
- Multi-heat control with 10 heat settings for various curls.
- 1 inch curling barrel for optimal curls.
- The cool tip that is long enough to hold hair and curl it at 428°F and below.
- Won’t fry your hair during use, so there is not burnt hair smell.
- Long power cord, that is convenient to plug into a floor socket.
- Pivoting cord, that prevents it from pulling, snagging or tangling your hair.
- It doesn’t have an auto-shut off feature.(although it isn’t really needed, I have found that is great for those who are forgetful, like myself.)
- Can crease hair when it gets too hot.
The Hot Tools Spring Iron, is the best in its class, and even though it doesn’t have an auto-shut off feature, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth it. This is one of the few curling irons that are out in the market that actually can create a variety of curls for all hair types, like glamorous waves to casual curls.
How to get loose curls with a curling iron
December 1, 2015
If you plan to go out or just want a quick and salon fabulous type of curl then this tutorial will give you a chance to try on your own at home. Before you even begin, you want to make sure that your curling iron will give you the right amount of heat and has the right barrel size to produce those cute waves. If you have very hard to curl hair, you will need a curling iron that heats to more than 370° F. I have very long and hard to curl hair, my iron heats to a full 480° F, and I have no issues getting those wavy curls. Now you have to figure out if your barrel will give you those loose curls. Any barrel that is ¾ in and up will give you a loose curl.
Now you need to gather everything you will need. Heat protectant or styling products that you use, your curling iron, a few hair clips, comb and brush. I myself have a bit of a habit on burning my ears, so I use a small cloth headband to cover them.
Brush your hair until it is fully untangled and add in your styling product. This will help your curls to stay a bit longer than you expect. Once it is in, part your hair into different sections. Since my hair is super long, I use 4 clips and do a section at a time.
Start with one section, and then divide your hair using the comb. A section that is about an inch wide is usually the best. Anything that is bigger, your curl may actually fall. Depending on if you want the curl to fall around your face or away, clasp the end of your hair in the clamp at the end. Now, I curl my hair from my face, so if I start on my left side I will wrap my hair counter-clockwise and if I go right, I wrap it in a clock wise motion.
Hold your hair in the clamp for around 30 seconds. This gives your hair enough time to heat up well and hold your curl. Hold that position and release the clamp. As you are pulling your barrel out of your hair, pull downwards, not enough to hurt yourself, but enough to stretch your curl to give it a more natural feel and look. Now do this to the rest of your hair.
Once you are done, spray a medium to light hold hairspray to keep it in place and style as normal. This is the easiest way to get celeb style loose curls without all the hassle or the price tag of a salon.

Sultra The Bombshell Curling Iron Review
November 29, 2015
Advantages of the Sultra Bombshell Iron
- Uniform distribution of heat. The distribution of heat is even, which means that you won’t end up with odd shaped curls that retain the original shape after some time.
- Relatively easy to handle and comes with instructions. If you are a beginner and never used a curling iron wand before, you can watch the available instructional videos and tutorials on how to achieve classic looks with the iron yourself at home. These are especially beneficial for beginners or those with little experience.
- Comes with a 2 year warranty. If you register the product number within the specified day limit after buying it, you will enjoy a 2 year warranty which covers you in case of breakage or accident.
- Awarded with a 2014 TotalBeauty.com Curling Tool Editors’ Pick Award, which makes it among the top choices of curling irons for last year. The editors who have voted for this considerate many different factors and this obviously has passed the test of performance and quality.
- Great portability. The curling iron comes in a bag to be carried with you, anywhere you go—to your uncle’s house or even your work—it’s really that easy and doesn’t take so much space as you think in your bag/purse.
- Long lasting results. If you are fed up with making an effort to curl your hair, only to end up with semi-straight waves the next day, this one won’t disappoint you. The quick heat distribution works wonders for bringing you long-lasting hold.
Disadvantages Of Using The Sutra Bombshell Curling Iron
- Low number of dissatisfied customers. When rated on a beauty site, this curling iron received very few negative reviews, which means that the vast majority of people who have used this, were very satisfied with its performance. The negative reviews however, were aimed towards the purchasing process rather than the use of the product itself.
- Relatively expensive. The curling iron isn’t dirt cheap for some and there is a price to pay for quality.
- May not be suitable for creating classic (or if your prefer outdated) deep curls as this is more designed to produce modern, deep or light waves and curly styles.
Ιt’s blatantly obvious that the advantages outweigh any disadvantages coming with using the bombshell curling iron and you should definitely give this a try if you want stellar performance and great long-lasting wavy styles. Compare it to other curling irons.
