Wavy Looks Made Easy

by Remington Ready December 18, 2014

 

Traditional curling irons create small, tight curls that can leave you with the Shirley Temple look. That might work for your grandma, but you need a more modern style—something like free-flowing, vibrant waves!

 

That’s where the Remington Oval Waving Wand comes in.  The unique shape of the wand forms natural-looking waves that add a perfectly subtle touch to your fresh look.

 

You’ll get salon-quality results from the 410-degree digital heat that reaches temperature in just 30 seconds. And as part of the T|Studio line of styling products, the wand is equipped with a ceramic coating that’s infused with silk proteins to keep frizz to a minimum and reduce damage to keep your hair looking and feeling its best. 

 

So throw away the old curler and embrace the wavy look! The simple wrap-and-go convenience of the Remington Waving Wand makes it easy to craft long-lasting beach waves for the modern style you want!  

What It’s Like To Be A Celebrity Stylist: Richard Marin

by Remington Ready December 17, 2014


Hair, camera, action! We sat down with celebrity stylist Richard Marin to get the inside scoop on some of the fabulous hairstyles he’s created for world-famous actresses. His remarkable work has graced the pages of some of the most elite fashion magazines, including Vogue, Allure and Vanity Fair. In this exclusive interview he shares his favorite part of the job, styling tips, and some of the hot trending hairstyles! 

 

 

What is the best part about being a celebrity hairstylist?

 

"The best part of my job is the access I have to the most creative people in their fields from fashion designers to wardrobe stylists who start the fashion trends. From here I see what my peers are doing and how we relate hair trends to salon clients to celebrities on the red carpet. It's fun to see what trends really catch on and become every day hairstyles that everyone wants to emulate."

 

 

What is the difference between styling hair for television and movies versus everyday wear?

 

"With TV or movies you're working with a variety of elements from lighting, what a scene calls for, or a director and actress wishes. Hair usually expands on screen so it's a balance of getting the hair right for the character and what is right for each particular scenario. In real life it's all about getting it right for YOU! In any case, I can't do my job correctly if I don't have the right products, a good haircut and most importantly the right tools. I've become very reliant on my Remington T|Studio Silk products because they just make the hair look and feel shiny, soft and beautiful. That’s where I start and hopefully maintain that in working with a client at the salon or an actress in a movie or on the red carpet."  

 

In your mind, what has been the best red-carpet runway hairstyle?

 

"What works on the runway necessarily doesn't transfer to the red carpet so what I always look at is what is big on the runway and how will I translate the look on a celebrity for the red carpet to make them look the best they possibly can. I take into consideration who the person I'm working with is and what hairstyle will be best them, the event they are going to and the dress they are wearing for the red carpet." 

 

 

What is your favorite runway look and how do you create it?

 

"I'm really liking all of the new layered Bob's that are happening for the season, These looks all have great texture. Begin by adding a texturizing spray into your dry hair or a thermal active spray that will work with your T|Studio Silk Slim Conical wrap and go wand. I like the Remington T|Studio 1/2 inch to 1 inch conical iron to achieve the best texture. Wrap your hair around the large portion of the conical iron, and the next section of hair use the smaller section of the conical iron. What this does is it creates a variation of texture throughout your hairstyle. Once you've completely wrapped all of your hair in various textures, shake, shake, shake your hair and you're ready to go! Have a lot of fun with this look. The messier and the more texture, the better!"                                      

                         

Whose hair style is trending the most in Hollywood?

 

"Whoever does the most dramatic change! Trending hair comes in all forms. Everyone has an opinion about hair, whether they love it or hate it, but this past year we really owe all the short hair resurgence to Miley Cyrus. It shot a whole new energy in cropping the hair short from the model Coco Rocha to the Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco. Also, last few seasons "BOB" trend will now be the "Shaggy Layered Lob (long bob)" for spring 2015."

The Braided Crown

by Remington Ready November 3, 2014

 

 

Braided Crown:


1. Part hair to the side and separate 3 small sections from the front of the part.


2. French Braid hair by crossing each section under the other, instead of over the other like normal braiding. To French Braid hair, add small sections of hair every time the braid crosses. It is best to start by adding sections from the part and hair line.


3. Continue French Braiding hair across forehead, around the back of the head, and to the other side, so that braid wraps around head like a headwrap.


4. Once you reach the end, secure with a Double Knit elastic.


5. Tuck/cover up the end of the braid into the hair behind/above the ear and secure with bobbies.

Smooth Skin in the Sensitive Areas

by Remington Ready October 28, 2014

 

How many trimmers, shavers, and other tools do you use on your bikini area?

 

If the answer is more than one, you’re missing out on the ease and convenience of the Remington Smooth & Silky® Body and Bikini Grooming Kit!

 

The versatile set comes with three grooming heads that fit on the slim, cordless base for use in or out of the shower.

 

The trimmer head is perfect for shaping the bikini area. It comes with an adjustable guide that trims at four different lengths and protects your skin from the blade.

 

When you need to get a close and smooth shave, the foil attachment works wonders. The head is angled to handle even the hard-to-reach places, and it’s hypoallergenic so the close shave won’t irritate your skin.

 

The third attachment will keep your bikini area smooth and beautiful. The exfoliator brush attaches to the same battery-powered base as the shaving heads, and operation couldn’t be easier. Just move it around the bikini area in a circular pattern before and after grooming to help prevent ingrown hairs and razor burn. 

 

Three ways to trim and maintain your bikini area in one awesome kit. And don’t forget—it’s waterproof and cordless so you can use it in or out of the shower to fit with your normal grooming routine and find your most comfortable performance.
