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!
