With Taylor’s new album & recent move to NYC, she seems to be popping up all over the place…and looking more polished than ever! I recently saw an adorable, yet super simple Fall outfit that she was sporting in the streets of NY & I am dying to snag the style…
I have the most pathetic hair. Luckily, I’m cool with it [I’m more of a nail girl]. Most days I throw it on top of my head & just rock with it. Other days I feel like putting in a little effort. I’ve been avoiding hot tools & hair products for about week now – I’m trying to go “no-poo” …but that’s a whole other blog post [you can Google it in the mean time]!
Anyways, this weekend I decided to do SOMETHING with my hair. I was going to be seeing people that I hadn’t in a while…in public, and didn’t feel like looking like a total frump. In an effort to follow as many “no-poo” rules as possible, I decided to keep it simple. Using only a heat protectant spray on the ends of my hair & my secret ceramic weapon of a hot tool [keep reading], I was able to bring my limp & lame locks to life!
I’ve used this tool quite a few times before … & every-single, no seriously, literally, every-single-time I get SO many compliments on my hair. After receiving so much love in person & on social media this weekend, I decided I needed to share!
Insert secret weapon…
This is honestly the perfect tool for anyone who has thin & flat hair [like I do :(]. It creates a clean, beachy-wave style that lasts!
HOW-TO: …Apologies for my photobooth pics below – I didn’t have time to properly photograph. Hopefully they are still helpful!
1) Clip up your hair & leave a small section out to clamp. The more sections you have, the better…more volume!
2) Starting from the root of that piece of hair, clamp the tool on top of the hair [with the double barrel side UNDER the hair – you want the styler to create an “n” or a “c” curve, not a “u” curve.
3) Hold in place for about 20 seconds, unclamp, move down the piece of hair & repeat as many times as necessary to reach the end. My hair length takes about 3 clamps per piece.
4) Take down a new section of hair & repeat until your entire head is done!
…and TA-DA! SO easy, no!?
So much volume, so much curl! Such an easy way to completely transform lame hair! I highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking to give their thin & flat hair an all-natural looking boost! 🙂
Have you tried this styling tool before?
Any other tips for thin, flat hair? I’d love to hear them!
Fall is one of my favorite times of year…the colors, smells, food, and fashion- to die! Not so lucky for us on the East Coast, this Fall has been aggressively interrupted by Hurricane Sandy, and most recently this friendly little Nor’easter named Athena. While my state, and town are currently buried in fresh white snow, I wanted to bring it back and remember that regardless of what we may feel…winter is not here yet!
To help get back in the mind set, I picked out some of my absolute favorite things about Fall 2012 thus far- enjoy!
Those are just a few of my favorite things this season! What are you loving about Fall this year? Let me know 🙂
