Happy Monday! Roughly a year ago, I posted a story about my Inner Katie, a SATC (Sex & the City) reference many will know. Simple, straight-haired girls vs.; wild, curly-haired girls. I'm definitely the latter. Ha ha! Even though I'm half-Asian, my Polish roots are literally in my hair! All joking aside, it's true. Short story: I originally had jet-black straight hair up until around the age of 7 or 8. That's when my hair decided to have a life of its own and went wavy. Ever since then, my hair's texture has been this way. Not that I'm complaining. I'm lucky I'm able to work in different hair styles. And when, like many other girls, discovered Carrie Bradshaw's fashion sense and her famous, wild curls, I had to give this look a try!
As much as I adore this hair style, it has always taken me up to at least an hour to do. But not anymore. That's why I've partnered with HerStyler, a wonderful hair line of products, both in haircare and essential tools such as flat irons, curling irons, curling wands and more to give you a simple and easy hair tutorial on how to get 'Mrs. Big's' seamless ringlets! And in less than 20 minutes! I'm really excited to be able to do this look more often now, especially with New York Fashion Week upon us. :)
I started with HerStyler's Argan Oil Complete Hair Care Set, first washing with the shampoo which was rich in lather and soft to the touch. My hair afterward felt ultra clean and weightless. I then applied the intensely nourishing hair mask which repairs and prevents further breakage due to over-processed, dry and damaged hair. Hello, summer heat! The Argan Oil and Panthenol replenish even the most processed hair, resulting in thicker, shinier, and healthier-looking hair. After towel-drying my hair, I applied what is a godsend to any hair fanatic. The Argan Oil Hair Serum is anything but basic. Containing Provitamin E, this serum brings instant shine to any hair style. It instantly removes any frizz and wiry, unmanageable hair, by surely controlling, smoothing and shining! Perfect for these kind of curls. :)
After completely air-drying my hair (I never blow dry unless I have a blowout // *secret alert!), I used HerStyler's Colorful Grande Curler [curling wand 25" (base) 18" (end)] to achieve glamorous-looking curls. Start by dividing hair into two sections, leaving the bottom half down. To begin curling, I grab not too thin and not too thick strands of hair. (Between 1-1.5" in width) Always curl away from the face. I received a heat-protective glove included with the hair tools because it is that searing hot! Be careful as you can easily burn yourself. Like I mentioned before, other curling irons in the past used to have me spend too much time to get this hair do, but with HerStyler's curling wand, I was able to finish it in twenty minutes! My hair is extra thick, so many hair products in the past would not suffice. Trust me when I tell you this, HerStyler is the way to go, for any hair type! Works wonders while helping you achieve healthier hair while having the liberty to create whatever hair style you want! Just check out the results for yourself, like my Before & After pictures above.
