How to Use a Curling Iron: 13 Essential Tips

Hair-Care-USING-A-CURLING-IRON-1Do you want to know how to use a curling iron? A curling iron can be a girl’s best friend, especially when prepping to attend a special occasion. In fact, for some, a curling iron has become a part of their everyday hair routine. It is a magical tool that can easily add texture to the hair. However, it can also cause hair damage and breakage if not used properly. To get gorgeous curls, they are not really that easy to use. When watching hair tutorials or hair stylists do it, it looks like a no brainer. But when you start doing it on your own hair, it is actually harder than it looks.

So, here are some tips on how to use a curling iron:

1. Moisturize your hair

Curling irons can be drying, so it is important that your hair is well-moisturized especially if you are using it often. Some hair stylists though prefer skipping the conditioner on the day you are curling your hair. In this way, the curls will not slide and will just stay in place. You can also do this once in a while. But if the curling iron is your best friend every single day, do not skip conditioner. Heat can be ultimately damaging so you need to moisturize your hair to prevent dryness and frizz.

Party Hairstyles: 4 Party Perfect Hair Ideas

Hair-Care-Tips-PARTY-HAIRSTYLES-1Party Hairstyles #1: Loose Waves

The perfect anytime hair style with its ‘I woke up like this’ air of perfection is a favorite of women everywhere. Great for parties, days off, or drinks with the girls this style looks like it would be easier to achieve than it actually is.  Before starting this style you need to decide on 2 things: first, where you want your part to be and second, whether you want curls through the ends of your hair or throughout the middle and into the ends. The first is done with a classic curling iron and the second is with a straightening iron or curling wand.

What you will need:

Texturizing Spray, 1-1.5 inch curling iron or curling wand (depending on the style of waves desired) or straightening iron, and shine oil or glossing cream. Also a comb or small-medium sized brush.

Part your hair wherever you like, scoop up your hair horizontally from ear to ear and secure the top section with a clip.  Working in 1-2 inch sections, depending on the thickness of your hair (the thicker your hair the smaller the section) curl each section away from your face working your way from one side to the other. Once finished, spray with a light mist of texturizing spray, then section off another chunk of hair from left temple to right temple. Repeat previous steps until

Trend Alert: The Best Long Hairstyles 2015

Hair-Care-Tips-LONG-HAIRSTYLES-2015-1While the bob and lob may have had their moment in 2014, long hair is making a serious comeback and will be the “it” length this coming year. Long hair was all over the runways for the Spring 2015 fashion shows, worn in loose waves, tight ponytails or slicked back on the top of the head. The trend is totally natural, simple, yet stylish hair that’s anything but boring.

We reveal 10 of the best long hairstyles 2015:

1. Boho Waves: Boho waves are simple, carefree and barely there waves that flow past the shoulders. The question is how do you achieve that soft, yet sophisticated tousled look that’s just right for everyday hair? With a few simple steps, you too can achieve this look. Begin by prepping hair with something that will protect it from heat and will provide a bit of shape and body – either a volumizing primer or heat-protecting mousse. Section the hair from behind the ears straight across and fasten with a clip. With a waving wand curling iron, take 1.5-inch sections of your hair and wind the hair around the wand, pointing it vertically to the floor leaving the ends free. Hold for 15-20 seconds then release. Repeat around the head alternating the direction you wind so that it’s not identical and spray with hairspray. Release the top section and repeat step 3. Try and curl the front sections away from the face so it’s more flattering. Using your fingers, drag them through the curls to completely soften and dishevel them. Spritz again with hair spray and the look is complete!

Winter Hairstyles: 8 Styles For The Holiday Season

Hair-Care-Tips-WINTER-HAIRSTYLES-1

Looking for the perfect collection of winter hairstyles? The holiday party season is officially in full swing! You’ve already got the outfit, the shoes, and the accessories and now all you need is the perfect hairstyle to make your holiday look complete. Whether you’re heading to an office party or going to a laid back dinner with friends, there’s a hairstyle on our list that’s just right for you.

Remember to let your outfit decide your hairstyle. If you are wearing sequins, or an embellished neckline, keep your hair effortless and style your hair up, out of your face. If your outfit is fairly simple, go for a more intricate style with your hair or leave it down. And, as with any look, make sure you are choosing a style that complements, not competes with- your outfit.

Natural hair care expert reveals 8 quick and easy winter hairstyles to help you navigate the holiday season:

Winter Hairstyles #1) Braided Party Bun: Add interest to a plain bun by integrating a braid into the look. This style is both elegant and sophisticated and is ideal for an outfit with a high neck or lots of detail. Begin by pulling hair into a high ponytail, smoothing strands with a paddle brush. Braid the ponytail to the end, leaving ends unsecured.  Twist the braid around the hair elastic, trying not to loosen the braid too much. Secure the braided bun with bobby pins. Finish by spraying hair with hairspray.
