The Best Revlon Hair Tools for Every Day Hair

This post was sponsored by Revlon Hair Tools as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.


Many of you have asked me about my go-to hairstyles. In partnership with Revlon, I'll be sharing my two most common go to's - straight and slightly curly. Both are great for everyday styles, along with day-to-night. I like my hair to be easy-going with my busy schedule, as I don't have that much time to style my hair every day. I'm only using Revlon hair tools in this post - continue reading to learn more along with seeing the final looks!

Revlon Straight hairstyle
Revlon Curled Hair

The first hair look is the straight-style one, using the Salon Copper Smooth 1.5” Flat Iron. Featuring advanced copper ceramic plate technology for ultra-fast results with less damage, it will leave your hair with silky smooth and shiny results. You can also adjust the heating temperature, which is perfect for different hair types! I love using the Revlon XL paddle brush before styling my hair with any heated tools. With IONIC TECHNOLOGY® infused bristles this hairbrush helps dry hair faster while still retaining moisture and reducing frizz. This brush is great for longer hair. I also normally put in some sort of heat-protected serum before styling my hair as well.

The second look for tousled curls, I used the Revlon Salon Advanced Copper Ceramic 1” Curling Iron. Featuring professional high heat, this fast heat-up curling iron reaches salon temperatures for fast styling and glamorous curls that last. Perfect for all hair types as this too has temperature adjustments. 5 settings to be exact! It literally took me less than twenty minutes to go from straight to this! Do you guys see the difference in texture and movement, while still maintaining that glossy shine?

In the meantime, here is my monthly roundup of beauty favorites!  From my latest favorite fragrance, to hair products, liquid matte lipsticks, a rosy face spray, to innovative makeup you all need to know about, it’s all happening now in today's post so don't miss out! Continue reading to learn more about these products and where the shop them!

ACQUA DI PRIMA MAGNOLIA NOBILE

Inspired by the beautiful palazzo gardens of Italy's majestic Lake Como region, Acqua di Prima Magnolia Nobile represents the essence and expression of natural, understated elegance. Top notes of Italian bergamot, lemon and citron blend seamlessly with the magnolia accord, a rare essence that can only be extracted with time and dedication. The heart evolves with refined notes of rose, jasmine and tuberose. The base notes unfold with sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver and vanilla. A unique and enveloping harmony. An unforgettable, captivating fragrance. Available at Sephora.

KÉRASTASE RESISTANCE COLLECTION

I've been using Kérastase haircare products since I was in college! They have amazing hair masks and lotions on top of shampoo/conditioners. With their new Resistance collection, it's the perfect regiment for hair seeking a healthy length. I’m growing out my bangs right now, and this collection has really helped speed up the process of my hair getting longer. My hair grows fast on its own, but after using this collection for a while now and the results have been amazing! Here's a breakdown of these four products:

Kerastasé Résistance Masque Thérapiste

Reparative Bandage Treatment Fiber Renewal care for thick hair. The thick, creamy reparative masque deeply nourishes and works at very core of the hair, for very damaged, over-processed thick hair. The hair is deeply repaired as its core. The hair fiber regains its strength and elasticity. Hair is toned and revitalized.

Kerastasé Résistance Serum Extentioniste

Strengthen and protect strands with the Kérastase Resistance Serum Extentioniste, a nourishing leave-in hair serum that helps to protect against breakage. The non-greasy formula uses a host of powerful ceramides to seal the hair cuticle whilst a blend of lipids creates a smooth surface, creating a fortifying effect from the inside out. The highly concentrated serum forms a defensive barrier over the scalp to protect against damaging environmental aggressors, whilst also sweeping away impurities for a fresh appearance. Hair will be boosted, revitalized and given improved resistance.

Kerastasé Résistance Shampoo

Strengthen hair from the inside out with Kérastase Resistance Bain Extentioniste, a fortifying shampoo that uses powerful amino acids and ceramides to improve elasticity from root to tip. Targeting weakened and brittle strands, the silky formula helps to rebuild the hair’s internal structure to make it more resistant to breakage, whilst a blend of lipids creates a smooth and shiny surface. The shampoo gently lifts away the build-up of dirt, impurities and excess oil from the scalp to leave locks fresh, clean and strong. Suitable for weak hair types.

Kerastasé Résistance Conditioner

Create smooth, silky and flowing locks with Kérastase Resistance Fondant Extentioniste, a creamy conditioner that expertly detangles strands. Powered by a blend of ceramides and Maleic Acid, the formula helps to fortify the natural hair fibre from the inside out, improving strength and elasticity to encourage growth. Replenishing moisture to the scalp and nourishing from root to tip, the purifying conditioner will leave locks super-soft, supple and noticeably healthy.

SUNDAY RILEY GOOD GENES

For an instant boost, reveal brighter fresher skin with Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment. Harnessing the exfoliating power of lactic acid, this intensive treatment helps to instantly brighten skin while working to reduce the appearance of fine lines and restore damaged skin. Enriched with licorice and lemongrass, the rich formula works to reduce the appearance of dark spots and boost blood flow, helping to bring new life to tired skin, in time revealing a fresher, more even-toned face. You can use Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment as a mask for an instant rejuvenating boost, or apply daily under makeup to reap long-term benefits and get skin truly glowing.

LAURA MERCIER INFUSION DE ROSE FORMULAS

LAURA MERCIER NOURISHING OIL

Lightweight yet powerful, this fast-absorbing oil leaves skin with a healthy glow – soft, radiant, and renewed. A true multi-tasker, Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil also provides multiple beauty benefits:
•Skin: provides soothing nourishment and moisture.

•Nails: hydrates and softens cuticles..

LAURA MERCIER CLAY MASK

A clay mask that deeply purifies and cleanses the skin, blended with the unique soothing and nourishing properties of the rose. A rose-infused mask powered by rich clays and infused with soothing, moisturizing ingredients to deeply cleanse the skin and remove surface impurities. 

LAURA MERCIER FACE POLISH

This creamy scrub cleanses, exfoliates and removes dead skin with purifying microbeads. A luscious blend of emollients softens the skin, leaving it smooth and even-toned. Suitable for all skin types.

LAURA MERCIER NOURISHING CREME

This light, whipped nourishing crème is supremely hydrating and offers intense moisturization and conditioning with mango and shea butters. Its unique formula rejuvenates the skin’s appearance and strengthens its moisture barrier, helping to replenish and balance during the day and restore natural radiance and softness at night.

FIRST AID BEAUTY HELLO FAB BENDY AVOCADO CONCEALERS

This full-coverage, buildable concealer provides a natural, luminous finish. It stretches and bends with skin’s movements throughout the day so it never cracks, creases, cakes, or settles into fine lines. The clean, skin-loving formulation contains avocado oil, vitamin E, and mushroom extracts to help hydrate, condition, and soothe skin while caffeine helps to diminish the appearance of under-eye puffiness and dark circles. The clean formulation contains no artificial colorants, is safe for sensitive skin, and is available in seven adaptable shades. The shade I use is 2.

Tata Harper Clarifying Spot Solution

TATA HARPER CLARIFYING SPOT SOLUTION

Tata Harper Clarifying Spot Solution Skin Care Serum: Infused with healing copper, magnesium, zinc, essential oils, and powerful herbal extracts, this solution treats blemishes by neutralizing impurities and reducing inflammation on the spot (literally). Whenever I get a big ole’ honking zit (hey, I love my dairy) I use this bad boy to quickly zap them away. And it’s the perfect travel size as well.

REVLON ULTRA HD MATTE LIP MOUSSE

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse Hyper Matte is a pigment packed, creamy formula that glides on smooth for hours of comfortable hyper matte wear. My favorite lip shade is Spice.

Hair That Goes from Day to Night Effortlessly with TRESemmé


Hey guys! I've been in London for LFW and am finally back in the states. I can't wait to share more content in the next week, so be prepared for an overload of posts and whatnot. February is a busy month for me! With traveling, I'm pretty selective about the hair styling products I use. Especially when it comes to hairspray, I'm picky because I've tried quite a few brands and there is nothing worse than a hairspray leaving your hair sticky and stiff! Some hairsprays are formulated with clunky particles that sit on top of the hair which creates build-up. The whole purpose of hairspray is to help maintain your look without weighing you down.

Luckily, TRESemmé got it right with their new line!The way these hairsprays work is by coating the hair fibers in a layer of various polymers that form bonds between the fibers to hold the hair in place. Micro-Mist blends two types of polymers in hair sprays: “tough” and “durable”. Too much of the “tough” polymers and hair feels stiff. Too much of the “durable” polymers and hair has flexibility but no hold. The breakthrough NEW TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Spray has the perfect formula that gives you style without stiffness for a natural, lasting hold that will move with you.

This is my kind of hairspray! Besides being a great product, the new hairsprays are packaged in a smaller can which contributes to an overall reduction in CO2 and are ergonomically optimized and easier to hold, yet still, contain the same number of sprays in the 11 oz. can. The new technology result in a more targeted, efficient spray that comes out softer for a truly lightweight, flexible hold and fast-drying coverage including adjusted valves, inserts, and actuators that are specially designed to cut the spray in half and narrow the cone angle of the traditional hairspray.

It's perfect for jet-setters who don't have all the time in the world to be high-maintenance with their hairstyle. I like to keep it lightly wavy/tousled curls and these sprays definitely do the job in holding it in place! Whether you are looking for a date night look or everyday style, the NEW TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Spray keeps your style intact without the stiffness. The hairspray I've been using has been the Texture & Boost Hold, but there is also the Extend, and Smooth! Head to the hair aisle at your local Walmart and pick up a can. Let me know what you think of this new hairspray formula!

THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY MARIA BONITA SPA & SALON AND EGO SHOES.

Hi guys! Yesterday for MLK Day I was treated to a blowout from a New York salon I've never been to. Maria Bonita Salon & Spa, located in SoHo, NYC, is a refuge for Manhattanites and is the only full-service salon and spa downtown. Co-owned by Manuela Giannini and created by Fernanda Lacerda in 2003 (recognized as one of the 100 most influential Brazilians living in New York by Vogue Brasil), the salon marries cutting-edge technology with traditional Brazilian beauty treatments to create an impressive mix of services and innovative spa treatments that rival those of the best spas in Brazil. Let's just say it was the perfect way to finish up the long weekend. Continue reading about my time at Maria Bonita and to see more photos from this fantastic location!

The fun, energetic vibe of Maria Bonita Salon & Spa is a full experience that morphs fashion and art into an intimate and professional environment. They offer facials, massages, waxes, and manicures in a gorgeous setting mixed with industrial and eclectic charm. Can this space be my new apartment, please? ;) I had my hair done by hairstylist, Junior. You definitely need to ask for him should you plan a visit to this salon. He is quick on his feet (did my blowout in under an hour... usually takes over that) and is very sweet. Did I mention this is a favorite salon in NYC for the models of Victoria's Secret? I definitely want to go back and try a facial, as this my latest obsession when it comes to skincare and beauty regiments. Look how sleek the blowout is!

With the variety of skillful Brazilian techniques ranging my haircare to nails, I'm offering a personal code that you guys are free to use to receive 20% off of anything at the salon! Use, 'Spiegoski20' during your next visit to Maria Bonita Salon & Spa. Watch more behind-the-scenes on my Insta-Stories before they disappear! But I'll probably put it under my Highlights so you guys can still go take a look. Lastly, if see anything I'm wearing from today's post that you'd like to purchase, I've linked the pieces in the beginning and end of this article. Got questions about the salon or what hair products they used during my blowout? I'm more than happy to answer back! Drop me a line in the comment box and have a great week! Catch ya guys soon! :)

THE WORLD IS MADE UP OF TWO TYPES OF WOMEN: THE SIMPLE GIRLS AND THE KATIE GIRLS. I AM A KATIE GIRL. ~ CARRIE BRADSHAW

 

If you're a SATC fan, I'm sure you know by now what episode Carrie said this in, with who, and why. It all comes down to Hubbel and why Robert Redford didn't end up with Barbara Streisand, or as us girls know her as, Katie... the complicated woman with wild curly hair. “Hello! C-C-C-Curly!!” Not all men, but many would prefer being with a simple girl rather than a Katie girl. Why? She's basic... ordinary... nothing special. She won't challenge you or inspire you or make you want to be a better person, but more so has the talent of keeping things light and well... simple. A definite non-core shaking kind of gal. And there's nothing wrong in that. But men I find to be highly intelligent and sophisticated will eventually grow tired with boredom. Wouldn't you rather find someone who touches your soul? What is the phenomenon of some men wanting to have a more quiet, less intense-filled relationship? Let's take a closer look...

4.jpg

There are a variety of reasons. One is that some men have trouble handling a Katie girl. We're passionate, ambitious, and sometimes yes, wildly difficult. Not because it's cool to be a great deal of maintenance required, but because we have opinions and aren't afraid to stand up for them let alone share them with you. We don't have simple minds and nothing about a Katie girl is basic. Ever see that couple walking down the street where the man is drop dead gorgeous, but not the woman? Now she may not be ugly, even far from it, but there's nothing particularly unique about her. She looks like a dime a dozen, and the personality is the same. An attractive man may prefer being with someone less attractive-looking for the sole purpose of being the better looking one. And because they know this, they too realize that these women will also worship the ground they walk on. They need that sort of validation from this kind of girl as they'd never receive it in the same way with a Katie girl. Plus,  a man like this tend to also be extremely insecure or narcissistic, and would also have trouble being with an extremely desirable woman. Just the idea of another man looking at her would piss them off to no end. (Yes, I've been with a guy like this before, and ugh, such a turnoff.) 

The other reason comes to down to simplicity. As mentioned before, the easier the relationship is -  the happier the guy will be in this situation. No muss, no fuss. But how can you grow with someone that you never disagree with let alone shares any kind of objections with? You think they're going to share their hopes & dreams on top? The same goes for women wanting a Katie guy. Is there anything real in that? But I also think not everyone wants fireworks... complications... difficulties. Most of us hardly have the time to see our friends let alone immerse themselves in an intense relationship as such. And how many times do you encounter a love like that? Once? Maybe twice if you live long enough? I think the key to finding and maintaining a successful healthy relationship is definitely figuring out what you want... what works for you, what doesn't. Because no one is exactly the same. 

10.jpg

How do you guys feel about this dynamic? Do opposites really attract, or is it just a disaster waiting to happen? Find out at least, in my opinion. I like to live with no regrets and if making a few mistakes leads me to something great, it's worth looking into right? But only if you're truly into the person. And I mean, TRULY. Lastly, I can't forget to mention a few shout outs with this fun pre-fall look! I'm all about the layering lately so today I matched an Adore Me pajama blouse with a cute summery striped split dress from ROMWE. I love the lavender satin ribbon detail in the back of the blouse, it brings a nice feminine added touch to the overall edgier look. My new backless ankle boots are from Ego Shoes, and they're one of my favorite shoe brands based in the UK! I added fishnet crew socks to complement the layered outfit. And my Movado watch was my mother's, a gift my father once gave her as an anniversary present, and a lesson within itself that you cannot buy back time. Don't forget to check out the entire look by shopping directly down below! You can follow my everyday adventures on Instagram too! And leave those comments down below about how you feel about basic b*tches vs. non-basic b*tches... and/or what you look for in a relationship that works for you :) I hope you all have a great week!
