4 Fall Hairstyles to do with a Curling Wand and Accessories

by Rachel September 16, 2016


Hey there, everyone! My name is Rachel and I’m a fashion/lifestyle blogger over at my website, Rachel Lynn.  I’m back to bring you more fun hairstyles perfect for the crisp Fall weather that is quickly approaching. I don’t know about you, but lately I’ve been so excited for Fall! Apple cider, Halloween, changing leaves and pumpkin everything has got me ready to say goodbye to summer and hello to Fall. So today I’m bringing you 4 of my favorite Fall Hairstyles to do with a curling wand. For these tutorials I’ll be using my Remington T|Studio Thermaluxe Curling Wand. I love how fast this wand heats up and how quickly it actually curls my hair! For a girl on the go, this wand is a must.



Curls & Volume

Everywhere I look lately, people are all about voluptuous hair. Not that people haven’t been dying for volume since the beginning of time, but lately I’ve been seeing volume on top of volume—especially on the runway! This hairstyle is super easy to create. Start with your basic curl using your Thermaluxe curling wand. Wrap your hair around the wand, leaving as much space in between each strand on the barrel as possible. When there’s more space on the barrel, your  curls will turn out looser and fuller! 




After that, I take my hands, hold small sections of my hair and push up on the rest of it. This isn't quite like teasing hair - although if you want even more volume that will definitely work - but it will still get the job done!


Greek-Inspired Twist

This style is even easier than the last! I like to start with a curled base, because the curls give my hair more volume. Who doesn't want more volume in their hair?! After the curl, place the hair band on top of your hair - not underneath it. Then, simply take sections of your hair and curl them up, over and then underneath of the hair band. This gives the circular twist look. 



 I always mess around with mine a bit, pulling some strands looser here and others tighter in order to give the desired effect. 




Pony Tail Twist

This look is very similar to the Greek-inspired twist, but with a ponytail. I start by sectioning off section of hair towards the front of my head and twisting it back towards the base of my head. You can make this twist as tight or loose as you want. I usually add in hair as I get closer to the base of my head.




Once you do this to both sides secure tightly with a hair tie. Low ponytails are HUGE this fall. I've seen them all over the runway, and this look would be perfect with a sweater and a scarf. I always like to take a piece of hair and wrap it around the hair tie. I feel like this gives the look a cleaner effect - much more chic!




Knots, Knots and More Knots!

If there's one thing that the runway is crazy about - besides vintage accents and 80's inspired hair - it's knots! Any and every type of knot! Some of them look super crazy and messy and other a very prim and proper. I'm the personality that loves a little craziness. Maybe that's because I'm always in a rush when I'm doing my hair, but if I can pull off the 'chic mess' then it's a good day! Again, I curled my hair before hand to give my knot more volume. For this style, I simply took my hair and twisted it into a ballerina-esque bun on the lower part of my head.        




I secured it with my Remington Large Sweep and Style Barrette and was good to go!  




I love having my hair curled with this style, because then I can pull out a few strands of curled hair and give off that 'messy' vibe.


I hope these fall-inspired hairstyles bring you as much joy as any pumpkin spice latte could give you! Happy Fall!

4 Beauty Trends for 2015

by Remington Ready January 23, 2015


Sombré is the new ombré! It’s a softer, more subtle color fade and an easier way to mix up hair color without going too extreme! Instead of going from dark brunette to light blonde, the color fades from dark brunette to light brunette or blends in color by going from dark brunette to dark red. The sombré also blends better, using highlights to work the color in more naturally. This is usually done with the “balayage” technique where color is painted on by hand instead of using traditional foil. So if you’re ready for a sombré color update, look for stylists in your area that specialize in balayage! 




Bold lip color is everywhere! But it’s out with the red and in with the new. The deep berry color is what we’re seeing most. Adding a rich elegance in darker shades, it varies with hints of either purple or pink. The key to wearing dark lipstick is the lip liner; make sure to have a defined edge if you’re trying this trend out! For more natural looks, try a rose color lipstick. This brings in the berry shades while keeping a more subtle and neutral tone.


For a berry color, we recommend "Raspberry" No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick or "Blissful Berry" Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color.


For a rose color try "Plum" Botanics Lip Stain.




These waves are bringing the 40s back— more retro-fabulous than ever. For shoulder length cuts, it’s all about the deep side part, sweep over, and dramatic waves. We’ve seen many variations of this look on the runway and red carpet, but it’s just as fitting for everyday hair styling. Don’t worry about the fuss of using salon clips to set hair in a zig-zag wave pattern, just use a wide waving wand like the TStudio Pink Silk Waving Wand. Brush out the waves for a softer look and create a side part, slicking back the shorter side. Keep volume across the sweeping bangs and you’ll be looking fresh and classic with these retro waves.




Eyes are really popping with bright, fun colors! From blue and turquoise to red and orange, eye make-up is getting more intense. It’s used as an eye liner or even complete eye shadow, but we suggest the more subtle eye liner highlight. Put on normal black eyeliner on the top and bottom lids, then just accent on the outside of the black liner with a pop of color (we suggest blue to start off with). Focus more on the bottom lid and outside corner, or go all out and blend it into brightly colored eye shadow!


We recommend Revlon Colorstay Eye Liner or NYX Slide on Pencil for easy-to-apply color options. 

Beach and Pool Essentials

by Kate Austin June 30, 2014



My name is Kate Austin and I’m so honored to be blogging for Remington Ready today! I’m the blogger behind Just Kate and today I’m sharing my must-haves for the beach or pool.

1. A beach tote or knapsack is essential for carrying everything to and from your sunny destination.  Other key essentials include a pair of flip-flops and a colorful beach towel.

2. While lying out, I love a good read or a fun magazine to browse through. I can get impatient, so entertaining myself is a must. I often put my headphones in and listen to some music or bring a friend to pass time while I’m soaking up those rays!

3. Pamper and protect.

a. A pair of sunglasses and sunscreen is crucial for a day in the sun. I love this sunscreen from Ulta, because it leaves a pleasant smell on your skin after application.


b. EOS lip balm is widely popular; however look for their Lemon Drop flavor if you want SPF in your balm.

c. Lastly, the Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil is a UV and heat protectant. Perfect for spraying into dry or wet hair for keeping your locks looking healthy. And of course, keeping a hairbrush handy is always a good idea.

4. A good suit to make you feel cute and confident is key for making your day in the sun enjoyable. Choose a style that best fits you and own it.

3 Bold Beauty Trends to Try

by Remington Ready March 12, 2014

In the past, thin eyebrows were all the rage. But this season, the thicker the better. There’s no better way for you to channel spring’s return to all things natural than by sporting bold brows! Pointed arches, darkened tones and filled-in effects define the eye without overpowering it.






Coral lipstick is the new spring and summer lip shade! It’s bright and fresh look leaves a polished look that flatters all complexions and offers a juicy pop of color. Coral lipstick suits perfectly to nearly all skin tone’s. However, the key on applying full makeup with coral lipstick relies on simplicity. Don't over do it! 






Liven up any everyday ensemble with a heavy hand of liner, and you're sure to be the center of attention. When you're rocking dramatic eye makeup during the day, be sure to balance it with other natural makeup. When going from day to night, add even more finesse to your fab eyeliner with a sweep of shimmery shadow, and now you're set!

How to Achieve a Perfect Pout

by Doria Murphy September 9, 2013



Are you dying to achieve a perfect pout? Here are some tips to help you create a lip that looks fabulous and wears well throughout the day or evening!


Exfoliating your lips will remove any dead or dry skin, making them the perfect surface for lip products to adhere to. Mixing organic coconut oil with raw sugar makes a quick and easy lip scrub. Simply apply it to your lips in a circular motion, then gently wipe it away with a damp cloth.


Moisturizing your lips prior to applying lip products will give you a smoother, more hydrated surface to work with. It will also prevent your lips from feeling super dehydrated as the day or evening goes on.


There are a number of amazing primers out there, which are meant to help your lippies stay budge-proof and bright. MAC’s Prep + Prime Lip is an effective colorless ones.

Line & Fill

Lining and filling your lips with a complementary lip pencil will prevent your lipstick from feathering or bleeding, while helping it to maintain a more even appearance as it wears. When filling in your lips it’s easiest to shade them in using the side of the pencil rather than drawing on them with the point, as shown here using MAC Magenta lip pencil.

Line the Perimeter

If you struggle with bleeding and feathering, using a colorless lip pencil to line the outer perimeter of your lips can be extremely effective—such as Urban Decay Ozone. This creates a barrier, preventing lipstick from straying from your lips. 

Apply Lipstick

Now that you’ve fully prepped your lips, apply your lipstick. Using a lip brush will enable you to apply even, thin coats, which will help you to build the color and create longer wear-time. MAC RiRi Boy was used here.


If you’re using a matte lipstick and wish to maintain a matte look, skip this step. Otherwise, apply a layer of gloss to your look. This will give you an ultra-smooth, glossy finish while also helping to promote the longevity of your lip look! Butter LONDON Lippy in Frilly Knickers was used.

The Finished Look

Now that you’ve created the perfect, long-wearing lip look you’re ready to take on whatever the day (or evening) 
throws your way without worrying about your pout!

A Daily Hair and Make-Up Routine

by Melissa Uy May 6, 2013

What’s an ideal hairstyle & makeup look for everyday? Neutral eyes & a simple hair look is ideal when you’re on the go and don’t have the time to do complicated looks. I love eye palettes because they are compact and really easy to use on the go.


In this video I did a Taupe eye makeup look applying: a light eyeshadow on the brow bone, light taupe color all over the lid and a dark brownish eyeshadow on the outer crease.



Products used in this video: Flower Cosmetics Foundation “All About Face” mixed with Kat Von D Lock it Foundation. Rimmel Eyebrow pencil in black brown. Sonia Kashuk Spooly to brush the eyebrows. For the eyes I used the E.l.f. Tantilizing Taupe Eye Palette. Maybelline The Rocket Mascara in Waterproof formula. Milani lipstick in Teddy Bear. Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzer.

Must Haves for a Perfectly Primped and Polished Valentine’s Day

by Erica Jones February 11, 2013

When asked what my Valentine’s Day must have were, I had no idea! We are lucky if we can catch a meal at the local Olive Garden, let alone get dressed up and go out. Then I thought, how about I do something easy, something that would take the same amount of time as a regular look, but that had a little something extra. I feel as though when I’ve done something a little special, I feel more attractive, and whether he’s responding to the look or my feelings of attractiveness, I get a response from my honey.


I have been having a lack of confidence lately, as with the stress of grad school, I have been having significant hair loss (not fun or sexy, but true!) Luckily, about the time I’m having this very specific issue, L’Oreal comes out with a product for just that. The L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Triple Resist Ultimate Strength Solution promises nourish hair and reduce hair loss due to breakage by 64%.


I love the smell of these products and that all three smell the same. The scent is not overly floral or fruity, but clean and not overpowering. The leave-in Treatment has a nozzle that allows you to get right into the roots and, to me, feels a little cooling. It also recommends that you massage the leave-in product into the scalp to encourage micro-circulation, which is a good tip for anyone suffering from hair loss.


After I get out of the shower, I put the leave-in product in and then pull my hair into a loose bun while I do my makeup. The makeup I chose for this look couldn’t be easier.



I started with my Revlon Colorstay Whipped Crème Makeup in 200 Sand Beige (my winter color,) which I chose because it applies like a dream, has wonderful staying power and doesn’t need powder to set it or keep it looking great through the night. I then used a brand new product, the Starlooks blush in Cuty Peach, which is the perfect peach for a sweet, sexy flush on the cheek. I then did my brows with my new favorite brow product, the Tarte emphasEYES Waterproof Amazonian clay brow mousse, which I applied with the SOHO eyeliner brush that is the perfect strait edge for getting a uniform and neat brow line. The best part of this look is the eye palette, which I discovered recently and absolutely fell in love with.



This is the Lorac Unzipped Eye Shadow Palette. I have been obsessed with putting a midtone shimmering shade all over the lid and blending a dark matte shade into the outer corner and deep crease, and this palette gave me so many options to do just that. For this look I used Unreal all over the lid, blended Unspoken through the crease and Untamed into the outer V and lower lashline for a smokier look.  I topped off the look with two coats of Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Mascara and Revlon Balm Stain in Honey. The finished look came out better than I hoped!



Finally, I took to the task of finishing my hair. I started by applying my Big Sexy Hair Root Pump to the roots of my damp hair and drying with a round brush. Then, employing a trick I learned from my stylist, Jacob Rodriguez at Alicia’s Salon who is Sexy Hair Demo Cut Certified and a Genius. He came back from a Sexy Hair event in LA with some awesome ideas, not the least of which was the return of an old friend from the 90’s – the crimper!  


Jacob told me how another stylist had used the crimper at the roots of various sections to add body and from root to tip on strand sporadically as a sort of accessory.  The crimped pieces in between strait pieces look almost like when we were doing hair feathers, but cooler!  


As you can see, the crimp really pulls the hair away from the scalp and adds body.


While the interspersed crimped pieces add variety of texture and looks amazing!  So here is the final look with hair an makeup!  I love how everything came together and it looks totally fresh, romantic and a little edgy!



A huge thanks again to Jacob for not only the cool hair idea but for the amazing color!
