Summer Hairstyles to Beat Frizz

by Remington Ready June 29, 2016


Hi everyone! It’s Diana from 204 Park here again today to talk to you about summer hair. Let’s get real here for a second, in the summer it can be hard with the heat and humidity to keep your locks looking smooth. It’s easy to let frizz take over and ruin your hair but I want to share today how I keep my hair under control during the summer months.



Most of the time I like to wear my hair straight and to keep frizz at bay I use my Remington T|Studio PROtect Straightener. I cannot tell you guys how much of a game changer this straightener has been for me. It uses ceramic plates in combination with a vapor infusion technology that helps not only straighten and smooth your hair but conditions and prevents breakage at the same time! AKA - it’s AMAZING!



The vapor technology works with either distilled water or the Macadamia Conditioning Treatment. When you press the vapor release button, cool vapors are absorbed into the hair, protecting it from damage while you style. How incredible is that?!

Now onto the styling…

Because I wear my hair down most of the time I’m always looking for ways to mix things up a little bit that don’t take too much time. First, I smooth my hair out and detangle with my Remington Glitter Vent Brush to prep for the headwrap. I love my braided headwrap because it’s reversible and can also be worn several ways. For a sleek look, I like to wear it as a headband with my hair either down or in a ponytail or bun. For more of a boho vibe (or hello- summer music festivals!) I wear it as a head wrap. The elastic keeps it from moving around and it’s comfortable all day! Which look is your favorite?





Thanks again for having me, until next time!
Xo, Diana

Effortless Hairstyles with Accessories

by Remington Ready June 24, 2016



Hi! Sonja here and I'm back again with another collaboration with Remington, but this time I'm featuring a handful of their super cute hair accessories for the summer. I actually braided my hair the night before hence the wavy look, but you can style it however you like. Here are just some tips on how to do super easy hairstyles with these dainty accessories that are perfect for festivals, barbecues, or any outdoor events that you plan on having in the summertime!

Hair Extensions Looped Bristle Brush, Teasing Brush

Here are the tools and accessories that Remington sent me to test out, all of which I'll be using for this post except for the Hair Extensions Looped Bristle Brush since I won't be wearing my hair extensions today.



Starting off with the easiest look, I teased the crown of my hair for a little bit of volume using the Remington Teasing Brush. I then took about a 1" section from both sides of my hair, twisted them loosely, and secured them with the triangle clip. If you want a more effortless look, leave little sections in the front to frame your face. The clip won't budge, so you don't have to worry about it falling off when you're rocking out to your favorite bands!




Here's something that requires a little bit more work but still totally simple and doable. I took 1-2" sections right above my ears and did two regular braids. A few inches above those sections, I took another 1-2" sections and did the same thing. I then brought all 4 braids together to the back of my head as centered as possible, and secured them with the infinity clip. This one feels even more secure than the triangle clip, so these little braids surely won't fall apart! If you want, you could loosen the braids for a messier look as well.

For the photos above, I styled a braided crown using three vastly different hair bands that you can use for various occasions. First off, to do this ethereal bohemian hairstyle, start off by braiding pigtails and securing them with elastics. Bring one side of the pigtail all the way around the other side and bobby pin securely. Do the same thing on the other side by positioning the braid however you like - it can be on top of the other braid or right next to it. You may also want to leave thin curled sections in the front to frame your face.

Now you're ready to soak up the sun with your hair looking super chic and summer-ready!
