So I did it. I got about six inches lopped off my hair and, while I wanted to go blonde right away, the lovely and skilled stylist suggested we take a multi-stage approach to keep my hair healthy, and lightened it up using balayage. Evidently, I won't need to have the color revisited for about eight weeks, at which point we'll add in more blonde. I'm new to balayage so was wondering if anyone else has experience with it and can I really wait eight weeks? I love the fact that my hair doesn't scream 'highlights!' and I just want to ensure I maintain this in the best possible way!
I have straight hair, and it gets super boring sometimes. What's your favorite way to curl your hair? I just don't really want to use curling iron, because my hair is thin enough and I don't want to damage it. Brands names are welcome too
Just brought a T3 compact Singlepass. The Ultra Chi was an option, but I wasn't sure if the Australian voltage would kill my Chi. What do you guys recommend for a universal voltage hair straightener? Australia voltage: 230 V 50 Hz I am not staying at a hotel, I will be in my family home.
So I have naturally curly hair. I use the Deva Curl 3 step and when I got my hair cut by a DevaCurl specialist (he did a dry cut) he did a great job of putting volume at my roots with the duckbill clips. When I try to replicate the process I can't seem to get my roots to work with me. I was wondering if I should use a volumizing product to help with the volume or just keep using the clips? Even when I straighten my hair and try back combing I still can't get any volume in the crown. Anyone have any advice?
20% off is a big incentive for me to get this thing that I've been debating over for what seems like forever. I have pale skin and dark hair, which is supposed to be best for these sorts of devices. I'd love any input if anyone has tried it. Enable me or unenable me! http://www.sephora.com/flash-go-freedom-hair-remov al-P379503?skuId=1539659
I have a TON of hair (like... a lot.) I want to curl it for prom but it gets BIG when I curl it. Would curls or waves bring volume down a bit? (In the shaft, not at the root) I have fairly long hair, down to the middle of my back, but my hair just gets so big when I curl it, it doesn't look that long. I want it to go on for days, while still having some style. So would curls (would a smaller barrel or a larger barrel produce less volume?) or waves (how would I make waves...) have less volume in the shaft itself?
I am personally terrible with styling my hair, so I love to treat myself to blowouts @ DB! Have not tried their products yet (they have always used Loreal and Moroccan Oil at the salons) but am looking forward to trying some volumizing products! I may not be getting the curling iron, but for those interested in this super-cute yellow buttercup one, there is a promotion right now
I am looking into a new flat iron and have heard great things about the KQC Flat Iron and things about NuMe too. I was leaning more towards the KQC at first, but then when I saw many beauty youtube guru's using NuMe, it made me think again. Just wondering which one is better or if both are just the same? Any tips on which one to get? Any pros and cons?
Anyone have any idea what product Kristen on this season's Top Chef ()season 10) uses to get the awesome motion and hold in her hair? Or suggestions of products and routines to try? I love the wave she gets but it still holds and looks natural.
