I have been getting so many requests for hair tutorials and what I use to do my hair. I haven’t had the chance to to a tutorial video yet, but at the very least I wanted to share which tools I use. Just like with makeup brushes, I believe that if you don’t have the right tools, you wont get the same/best results. Therefore, I figured you girls would be interested to see what I use.
There are 5 main tools that I use almost every time I style my hair. And not just any curling iron or straightener will do. You have to find the right ones. Most girls that I know, don’t use the right curling iron, let alone know how to use it.
I have 3 brushes that I like to use. A paddle brush (Hot Tools Pink Titanium Paddle Brush) used mainly during blow drying, a round brush (Conair Tourmaline Ceramic Large Round Porcupine Brush) that I use to style my bangs while blow drying, and a TIGI Bed Head Clean Freak Tourmaline “Split Personality Styler” brush that I use when I’m traveling because it is a 2-in-1 brush. Even when I’m at home I will use the SPS instead of the other 2 brushes because it is easier. I love this brush.
THE CURLING IRONS:
I also love having a selection of different size curling irons. Seeing them sitting there all lined up and seeing the options! Love. They look so alike, but each one gives a slightly different result, so depending on your mood or the occasion you can be creative in the way you curl your hair.
Now, a curling iron is not just a curling iron. . . I’ve never found a better brand than Hot Tools curling irons. They are well priced, and I recommend trying to buy yours on sale since they go on sale often. For the money, these are the best! What I love about them is not only are they easy to use and affordable, they work very well. What makes them work better than other curling irons? The durability of them, as well as the adjustable heat setting. I highly recommend that you get all of your hair tools with an adjustable heat setting, mine have it, this is important to protect your hair. They also have a few different types of curling irons, in many different sizes.
I have 3 curling irons, but the one I use most frequently is the 1-1/4″ Professional Spring Iron for large, loose curls by Hot Tools. I have it in the classic black & gold, and also the Titanium and Pink. I also have the 1″ Professional Spring Iron for full curls and waves, and the 1-1/2″ Professional Spring Iron for longer hair and creating extra-large, loose curls and waves.
These curling irons have a Soft-Grip™ textured handle, adjustable temperatures up to 430° F (220° C), a powerful spring clamp, Extra-high heat, 24K gold-plated barrel or Titanium surface (on the pink one), Fast heat-up, Heavy-duty long-life heating element, Foldaway safety stand, Extra-long cool tip, 8-ft. heavy-duty tangle-proof swivel cord, & On / Off switch.
I always buy mine from ULTA:
THE FLAT IRON:
I have this flat iron in 2 sizes, the 1 inch ($99) and 1.5 inch ($140).
Croc Classic Titanium for all keratin treatments 1″ Black Titanium Plates for easy styling. “Croc Classic Titanium iron has 1 1/2″ plates for easy styling on long hair.
