Messy Ballerina Bun

by Megan Joy May 14, 2015

 

 

Hi there! I'm Megan from meganjoy.ca and I am so excited to be a guest blogger. I wanted to show you this simple and quick way to style your hair. A ballerina bun is perfect for hot summer days because it keeps your hair off your neck and it's also great for those "second day" hair days when you just want your hair up and out of your face.

I used the Remington Perfect Bun in Blonde to create this look. I have fine and layered hair so it can be tricky getting all the stray pieces into a bun. I've learned that if it looks a little messy it's ok! It doesn't need to be perfect and it still looks pretty even if you have a few stray hairs.

 

 

• Step 1: Pull your hair into a ponytail. Use your hands (not a brush) to give it a more casual look.

• Step 2: Once your hair is in a ponytail slightly tease your hair to give it more volume

• Step 3: Push the ends of your hair through the opening of the Perfect Bun with about an inch of your hair sticking out

• Step 4: Roll the bun towards your head and twist the ends of the Perfect Bun around the hair elastic (there is wire inside so it holds it's shape when you wrap the ends of it around your ponytail)

• Step 5: Spread your hair out around the bun to hide the Perfect Bun and add bobby pins if needed

• Step 6: Use hair spray or styling product to smooth over the bun and tuck in any stray hairs. If there are a few pieces hanging out, don't sweat it. The messier the better!

 

That's it for this super easy hairstyle. I like the Remington Perfect Bun because you can adjust the size of it depending on how tightly you wrap the ends around your hair elastic. So if you have thin hair like me you don't have to worry about having enough hair to spread across a giant hair donut. And if you have thicker (or long) hair you can create a larger bun too!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!

Ways To Protect Your Hair

by Remington Ready April 15, 2015

 

Beautiful style starts with healthy hair. To keep hair healthy, you have to protect it against damage from the environment and from styling. Here are a few of the most important tips to keep your hair healthy, smooth, and strong.

 

 

Avoid exposure to harsh weather

You might not think weather or a little sun could do much damage, but all that exposure can really take a toll! Excessive dirt, heat, pollution or sun can cause breakage and dry out hair. It can also have harsh effects on your scalp, even creating scalp conditions or infections (EW!). So be sure to cover your flowing locks during a day in the sun or a dusty area with a hat or scarf. Go ahead and take advantage of the giant sun hat trend. You could also try a UV protection spray or conditioner like the Ubuntu Oil Colour Fade Protection Oil from Ulta ($12.99).

 

Be gentle with wet hair

Okay, we all know wet hair breaks easily, but we had to say it anyway: DON’T MESS WITH WET HAIR. It’s way more vulnerable to breakage than dry hair. It all starts in the shower. Don’t scrub your hair too aggressively; massage your hair as if you were hand washing your delicates. Once out of the shower gently towel dry, but don’t twist hair. Use a wide tooth comb to detangle and you’re all set to style!

 

Condition your hair the right way

Conditioner is crucial to protecting your hair, along with making it look awesome. It’s the one hair product you should spend a little more on to get something that really does its job right. We recommend It’s A 10! Miracle Daily Conditioner from Target ($14.99), which also have UV protection! Apply conditioner to the bottom ¾ of your hair and make sure to work it into your strands gently. Also, as summer rolls around, try putting on some light conditioner before hitting the pool or beach.

 

Brush carefully

Your grandma might have told you to brush hair 100 strokes a day. And while it helps distribute oils, it can also damage your hair if it’s not done right. Use an ionic bristle for less frizz or a detangler brush if you need to. Even better, use a conditioning brush like the PROtect micro-conditioning styling brush ($10.99) for a healthy shine. Overall, just handle with care. You should know if you’re brushing too hard if you notice a lot of hair in your brush afterwards.

 

Use protective styling tools

Unless your natural hair is just the way you like it, chances are you can’t help using heat to dry or style it. So make sure your styling tools are being as protective as possible while you style. Keep the heat setting as low as possible to get the style you want.

Look for dryers with ceramic and ionic technology like the T|Studio PROtect Hair Dryer ($47.99). This dryer has a conditioning ring that conditions hair as you dry for a healthy finish. For flat irons or curling tools, try to find products with high ceramic content so heat is distributed equally, minimizing the risk of damaging your hair.The T|Studio PROtect Flat Iron ($82.99) has vapor infusion technology that actually conditions hair with a macadamia treatment while you straighten. That means smoother and healthier hair!

Spring Active Style Trends

by Remington Ready April 1, 2015

 

Activewear isn’t just for the gym anymore—it’s become a style all its own. That means it’s time to upgrade your attire with something you can wear from the gym to the store and everywhere in between. We’ve put together styles from the top two emerging active trends to inspire your style!

 

Fit and Fluoro

 

 

The Fit and Fluoro Active Style trend features an array of bright, rich colors. We're all about these fresh tones that pop with boldness. Don’t be afraid to mix and match the bright colors in a single look and then find a fun print that brings it all together: Geometric or watercolor prints are some of our favorites. So try this vibrant look for your workout or to spice up your lounge day attire.

 

Water Bottle , Sports Bra, Tank Top, Gym Bag, Shoes, Running Pants

 

 

Pastel Perfect

 

 

The Pastel Perfect Double Knit Elastics trend comes from a mix of pretty and fierce. We love the tint of colors that are crisp while still lively. Pastels have been a trendy influence in everyday style and now they’ve made their way to activewear! Pair lighter pastels with richer colors, and look for floral or watercolor prints. You’ll be looking super cute at the gym or anywhere your day might take you!

T|Studio PROtect Straightener: How To Get Straight, Sleek, Healthy-Looking Hair

by Remington Ready March 2, 2015

 

Hello my loves! Today's vid is on getting healthy, straight & sleek hair! It's a review/demo of the Remington PROtect flat iron, which I am absolutely in love with! I'm usually not a fan of straightening my hair because of the damage, however this flat iron just makes my hair feel so nourished and moisturized that I absolutely love it! If you have super curly or frizzy hair, this flat iron will get rid of all of that!

I feel that this iron works best with the vapor feature turned on, however you can use it without and get great results too. Remember that if you run out of the Macadamia Treatment, DISTILLED water is the right substitute. Regular tap water shouldn't be used.

You can purchase the PROtect in Target and Walmart stores beginning March 1st! You can't miss out on this high quality flat iron for the drugstore price.. I'm literally so in love, and I know you will be too!
