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!

3 Back-to-School Hairstyles

by Rachel August 22, 2016


Hey there, everyone! My name is Rachel and I’m a fashion/lifestyle blogger over at my website, Rachel Lynn. I don’t know about you, but I am so excited for the upcoming school year. There’s always something magical in the air this time of year. Everyone is buying new clothes, school supplies and crafting the perfect back to school haircut, which brings me to the topic of this post. Today I will be discussing my top 3 favorite hairstyles featuring the Remington curling wand, perfect for back to school!

I know when I’m trying to get work done I need my hair out of my face. If I’m constantly touching my hair because it’s in my face, I immediately start wondering if my hair still looks good and then it all goes downhill from there!

Productivity- 0
Hair- 1,237

So without further ado, my top 3 favorite hairstyles featuring a curling wand, perfect for back to school!




When I was in high school I wore this style braid all of the time and recently it’s made quite a comeback.

I start by curling my hair using the Remington T|Studio Thermaluxe Curling Wand. This wand is amazing because it heats up in only 30 seconds and curls hair even faster. Talk about fast results! I always curl my hair away from my face. This gives the look a more wind blow, beachy effect—very flattering!




After that, I grab a section of hair from the front of my head and separate that into three equal parts. For this style, a Dutch braid is best. Take the two end pieces and braid them under the center piece. This gives the braid a more 3D effect.



Stop braiding once you reach your ear and secure the braid behind it. Now, all you need is a spritz of hairspray and you’re ready to go!




This is another quick and easy hairstyle, ideal for those lazy mornings you don’t want to put too much effort in, but still want to look cute!



I always start off this style by putting my hair up. Section off the top half of your hair and put it in a tight, messy bun. This is a lifesaver on mornings when you want to look cute and save time doing it. You only need to curl the bottom half of your hair. Believe me, if you’re anything like me and most mornings are a blur of foundation and toothpaste, the quicker the hair style, the better!



Okay, lets be real. I could wear this style any and every day, regardless of when the last time I showered was. However, if you were up late studying the night before and didn’t have time to wash your hair, DON’T PANIC! On mornings like these, I spritz a little dry shampoo into my hair before throwing it up into a high ponytail. If this is your second day of curls then a light touch up and a cute headband is all you need before you’re ready to walk out the door!

Even if you’re starting fresh, this style is super fast and easy. I don’t know why, but curling my hair when it’s in a ponytail is always quicker for me to do than otherwise!



For a clean look, take a piece of the ponytail, wrap it around your hair tie, and secure firmly. Now you have a look that took less than 10 minutes, is chic, but also effortless. Sounds like a win-win to me!

3 Different Curls from 1 Styling Tool

by Kelsey August 15, 2016


Hey Ya’ll! Kelsey from Chasing Cinderella Blog here and I’m excited to partner with Remington® to show you how you can get three different curls from one styling tool!

Remington sent me the T|Studio™ Thermaluxe™ Curling Wand and I am amazed at the quality! The ultimate ceramic barrel is cone shaped, sized from ¾” to 1”, and produces medium to large sized curls. My favorite part about this curling wand may be the fact that it has a 30-second heat-up time and a 60-minute auto shutoff! This is perfect for those of us who always forget if they remembered to turn off their iron!

The best part about the Remington Thermaluxe Curling Wand is that you can create three different looks using the same iron! Because this wand has non-slip ceramic barrel, your hair won’t slide off the rod, making it super easy to create different style curls! Below I am going to show you three different ways to curl your hair using this Remington curling wand: full curls, combo curls, and spiral curls.



Full Curls

This is the way that I usually curl my hair every day. It gives you more of a “Shirley Temple” look, with full, loose curls. To create this look, wrap your hair around the rod, keeping it flat against the barrel the whole way.



Combo Curls

This will give your curls a more textured look. You want to wrap your hair flatly at the top, wrap it around a few times, and then twist your hair the rest of the way around the rod. This will give the curls two different looks that combine for an awesome style.




Spiral Curls

This way will give you a twisted curl look. When creating this look, you want to first twist your hair tightly, spray some hairspray onto it, and then wrap the twisted hair around the curling wand! When you are finished twisting and curling all of your hair, you may think you look a bit scary- the trick is to brush out these curls with your fingers!



There you have it—getting three different curls by using one styling tool! Thanks so much for reading!

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!



Remington 5 ct Clips/Barrettes, Remington Flower Headwrap (Available at Target), Decorative Headwrap, Metal Arrow Headband



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.



Remington Flower Headwrap, Decorative Headwrap, Metal Arrow Headband

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!


Simple Stylings

Braided Top Knot Tutorial

by Remington Ready May 27, 2016


Hi everyone! Diana from 204 Park here today and I’m really excited to be partnering with Remington to share with you my go-to hairstyle for those hot summer days. As soon as the temperature rises I immediately gravitate towards top knots to stay cool. Today I’m sharing a braided twist on the top knot that’s sweet, simple and seriously elevates your look. Here’s what you’ll need:





Remington Glitter Vent Brush, Remington Teasing Brush, Remington Bow Clip, Bobby Pins, 2-3 Elastics, Hairspray





This hairstyle is easiest on second or third day hair. To start, brush your hair with the glitter vent brush to make sure you’re starting with a smooth base. Then, using the end of the teasing brush, separate the bottom ⅓ of your hair straight across and secure the top portion of your hair with an elastic.





To get a bit of volume, use the teasing brush to add some texture to the bottom ⅓ of your hair. Then, separate the bottom section of hair and begin braiding. You might find it easier to flip your head upside down to do this. Once the braid is complete, secure with an elastic. For a fuller braided look, gently pull the braid with your fingers to make the braid a bit looser and wider.





Once your braid is complete, secure the top portion of your hair into a ponytail, tucking the braid into the elastic. You’ll then create a bun with your ponytail using an elastic or bobby pins or both. To keep any flyaways at bay use a spritz of hairspray.





Lastly, finish the look with a sweet bow clip and your braided top knot is complete! With a bit of practice this look is easy to master and is a major upgrade from your basic topknot. Now you’re ready to look cute and stay cool all summer long! Thanks for having me!

Loose Waves and Dutch Braid Tutorial

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.
