Not Your Grandma's Setter

by Kelsey October 24, 2016


Hey Ya’ll! Kelsey from Chasing Cinderella Blog here and I’m excited to partner with Remington® to show you that a hair setter isn’t just what your grandma uses to curl her hair, but a quick an easy way to get your everyday curls in under 5 minutes! Remington sent me the T|Studio™ Thermaluxe™ Hair Setter and I was paid for this post. 


I’m not going to lie to you, when I was first approached about the hair setter; I was a little bit confused. Those things still existed?! But I am always looking for new ways to curl my hair, so I thought, “why not?” and had Remington send me the hair setter. I was so impressed by the space-saving design that I knew I had made a great choice by trying out this setter!


The T Studio Thermaluxe Setter comes with 20 clips and rollers in two sizes, 12 large (1 ¼”) and 8 medium (1”) rollers, making it easy to quickly create a head full of beautiful curls. With a 90-second heat-up time, the dual heating technology heats up the curls from the inside and outside, allowing maximum heat transfer onto the hair, allowing your curls to set faster and hold longer. You can curl your whole head in 5 minutes, rather than the 20 minutes it can take with other tools. 



Applying the rollers is super easy, and takes no time at all! First, you need to section your hair and run a brush through it to ensure you have no tangles. Then you roll your hair as you usually would, in the direction of your desired style. Once the roller is against your head, use the clip and clip the roller in place. Continue this process until your entire head is set. Depending on the type of curls you going for, determine how long you will keep the rollers in your hair. The longer you keep the rollers in, the tighter your girl will be. I went for a loose/wavy curl, so I kept the roller in for only a few minutes, but the rollers will remain actively curling for approximately 15 minutes. Warning: you will look like your grandma when your hair is full of rollers!



Once your rollers have been in place for as long as you would like, it’s time to take them out! To release the roller, remove each clip and roller gently. Once you unwind each roller, let each new curl spring back into position and cool for a moment. I then like to brush out my curls so they look a little more natural. Then spray a little bit of hair spray and you’re good to go!



There you have it—curling your hair made 100% easier! Thanks so much for reading!

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!

Beach-Ready Waves

by Sonja May 6, 2016



I've partnered with Remington once again to bring you this beach-ready look using their amazing T|Studio SILK Ceramic Slim Styling Wand. To see how to achieve this quick and easy look, keep reading!



The T|Studio SILK Ceramic Slim Styling Wand is the most advanced ceramic curling iron featuring a coating with real SILK proteins and provides more ceramic content than traditional curling tools, giving you a healthy, effortless, long-lasting curl with less frizz and damage. Silk ceramic combined with 410-degree high heat and professional performance creates smooth, beautiful and fast salon results.



What I find really unique about this curling iron is the tapered end - the barrel goes from 1/2" to 1", which allows you to achieve loose waves, tight bouncy curls, or even both! In this case, I went for a combination of loose and tight curls for a messy hairstyle that's perfect for the beach or just about any spring or summer outing.

It also comes with a glove to protect your hands from the heat, but if you're careful enough, this styling wand is quite user-friendly and I was able to achieve this look in just under 15 minutes. With a little bit of hair serum and heat protectant, you don't have to worry about it damaging your hair like most curling wands tend to do.



To accompany these sultry loose waves, I came up with a relatively simple beach-ready makeup tutorial. Since the intense summer heat calls for minimal makeup, I went for a natural-finish foundation with SPF, my usual winged eyeliner, a pair of natural-looking wispy falsies, a "my lips but better" liquid lipstick, and a whole lot of golden highlight for that striking summer glow.

Here's a quick walk-through:



1. Apply a light peach eye eyeshadow base all over the eyelid, extending it to the brow bone.
2. Add a touch of gold shimmer on the lids.
3. Wing your eyeliner and draw it as close to the lash line as possible.
4. Apply gel liner on the waterline and smoke out the bottom lash line with a dark brown eyeshadow.
5. Curl lashes, apply mascara, and glue on your favorite pair of falsies (I used House of Lashes in Leatherette).

And there you have it - a summer-friendly hair and makeup look that's perfect for a stroll on the beach or the pier. Be sure to check out Remington's T|Studio SILK Ceramic Slim Styling Wand if you want to achieve these loose messy waves! Also, stay tuned for yet another collaboration with Remington that will feature some really exciting products!

'Til next time.

Hi my name is Alex, (just Alex, my parents kept it short and sweet) and I have a channel here on Youtube where I share my love for hair, beauty, and my pup named Sophie. Since festival season is amongst us I thought I would share with you a simple Coachella inspired braided hairstyle that can be easily personalized to reflect your style with fun hair accessories.

I would love to hear which hair accessory was your favourite, or even better, if you will be attending any festivals this year, let me know in the comments below.

Teasing Hair Tutorial

by Remington Ready February 22, 2016


All it takes to tease is a good brush and some hairspray! Teasing (or backcombing) is an awesome way to create texture and build volume for everyday styles or updos. The Remington Teasing Brush features a pointed end that helps with parting and sectioning hair during styling. This is one tool that can do it all!




1. Section the hair around the crown of your head using the sectioning end of the teasing brush.

2. Starting with a 2” section, lightly hairspray focusing on the area you will be teasing.

3. Using the teasing brush, gently backcomb the hair while holding the section straight up. You should start about 3-5” above the scalp, depending on your hair length. Then brush the hair down towards your scalp several times until you reach your desired volume.
Tip: To avoid breaking your hair, don’t be too aggressive when backcombing and don’t brush hair quickly.

4. Repeat steps 2-3 on all hair sections around the crown of your head.

5. Once all sections are teased, part your hair as usual and lightly brush top layer of hair, making sure to not flatten out the teased hair underneath.
Tip: To have a smooth finish without brushing, keep a thin layer of hair around your part separate during teasing. Then when you are done teasing, let that section down to be a smooth layer over the teased hair. 

6. Scrunch your hair at the roots with your fingers for additional volume and look for any areas that may need additional teasing.

7. Smooth down your hair again using your hands and a shine serum or hairspray. Now your teasing is complete and it’s on to the styling.

8. Leave your hair down for natural big hair or bring hair up into a bun or ponytail.

Hair Brush Guide

by Remington Ready February 11, 2016


Anyone who’s had a bad hair day (who hasn’t?!) knows the value of owning a good brush. But one brush does not fit all styling needs. Remington has you covered on everything from building volume to drying hair faster. Check out the guide below and find the perfect brush for you!





1. Men’s Brush Set
The ideal set for the man in your life. The cushion brush smooths out short or long hair and the comb works best for detail styling any difficult areas.

2. Mini Brush and Comb Set
This brush and comb are the perfect size to keep in your purse for on-the-go styling. You’ll be prepared for any windy day.

3. Cushion Brush
The cushion brush is essential for medium to long hair. The nylon bristles detangle and smooth out hair and are also great for scalp stimulation.




4. Looped Bristle Brush
The ends of regular brush bristles can snag and pull on wigs, extensions and weaves. This brush has looped bristles, so you can smooth and detangle your hair with no worries!

5. Teasing Brush
This brush is sure to pump up the volume. It was specially designed for backcombing, teasing, and finishing, hair. It also has a special handle for sectioning hair or creating the perfect part.

6. Vented Brush
With a vented base, this brush can actually save you time getting ready. It was designed for use with a blow dryer, speeding up drying times and providing maximum volume.

Bohemian Curls Tutorial

by Busola January 15, 2016


Happy New Year everyone! My name is Busola Coutts and i am a guest blogger today on Remington. It is a new year and that always marks a time for new beginnings, new changes or just an excuse to have something new.
Hair is always one of those things i consider when i want a significant change, especially with my look. So today, i will be sharing a few quick and easy steps of how i went from straight hair to medium shag curls with a bohemian touch to it.


What you need:
1. Remington 2-in-1 Curling Iron
2. Remington Hair Clips. This is a complete set with two different hair clips and bobby pins in gold and silver.



Step 1: First, turn on the curling iron to start getting hot while you work on your hair. Pull out a few strands of hair on both sides and braid. Hold up hair that may be in the way while you braid by using the Remington bobby pins in the hair clip pack.



Step 2: You can either start from the sides or the back twisting a few strands of hair together. Then curl the twist with Remington curling iron set on 30 degrees.

Continue with this step by working your way to the top. Remember to leave out the fringe if you have one and if you don't you can easily get one by trimming your hair in front (only if you are comfortable with that) or you may just leave it as is.



Step 3: Once you have curled the entire hair except for the fringe start taking the curled up twists apart with your fingers. If you don't have a fringe you can always curl your entire the same way.

Then simply run your fingers downwards through your hair to loosen the curls to achieve that shag do. For more loose curls, gently brush it out with a wide comb hair brush.


Step 4: Time to pin down the individual braids on both sides to the back of the hair. You can have the braids slightly below the center of the back of your head which I prefer...

Or you can pull it even further down low. It depends on how long and how far your braids can go to meet in the middle.

After securing the braids in place, I pulled out a little bit of hair over the point where the braids meet and I locked them down with the Remington triangle hair clip for a trendy and stylish look.



The Final Result



The shag hairstyle has been and will always be a hot and trendy hair-do especially now. It is easy to maintain, very daring and great for a night out with friends or for that every day chic look. For more helpful hair tips, check out my blog in
