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!

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!
