Amika Deep Purple Tourmaline Clip-Free Curler.

Amika Deep Purple Tourmaline Clip-Free Curler

What it is:

A professional styling tool that delivers salon-quality curls that will last for days without any hairspray or holding agents.

What it does:

This clip-free tourmaline curler allows you to easily create smooth and shiny curls that last without tugging, breaking, or creasing the hair. Unlike other curlers, the barrel is clip-free, so it will not tug or break the hair.

Comes with: a heat resistant glove for you to style your hair and instruction manuals with advertisements of their other great products. The handle is designed  with a simple on and off switch with a turnable handle  making it easy for you to move the cord around. The actual curling rod is fused with ceramic for better and even heat distribution and safer styling.

The results: soft, natural curls that last for days without hair spray.

I am really impressed with this iron, it does take some time to get used to a clip free curler but its worth it. By my second try I felt like a pro and in 10 minutes had big gorgeous curls that lasted until I washed my hair. My hair is very fine , curly and I have a lot of it. I was so shocked that the Amika Clip-Free Curler could leave me with such big soft curls, I am in love!

One trick I found was this works best on hair that is not freshly dried. I like to wash my hair at night and blow dry it then I curl my hair in the morning it seems to hold the curl better. 

Price: $99
Where to buy: Sephora & www.sephora.com
 All amika™ tools come with a one year warranty.

 

Disclosure: I was given a complimentary iron to review, my opinions are 100% honest and my own.

TWO LEADING NAMES IN STYLE UNITE:
JOHN FRIEDA® HAIR CARE AND LAUREN MERKIN

THINK: Style to go.

WHAT IT IS: A fashion-forward partnership between hair care authority John Frieda® and design maven Lauren Merkin. Her name is synonymous with the clutch, so it was only fitting that John Frieda® hair care came to Lauren Merkin to design the perfect bags to house two of the latest style breakthroughs from the John Frieda® brand: Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher and Full Repair™ Touch-up Flyaway Tamer. Both trendsetters in the style universe, John Frieda® hair care and Lauren Merkin are joining forces to create the ultimate style accessories: exclusive Lauren Merkin clutches with must-have John Frieda® stylers inside. Whether you want to pump up the volume or smooth down flyaways on the go, now the chic style solution is at your fingertips—and in a covetable clutch.

To house Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher, John Frieda® hair care’s instant oomph infusion to revive style that falls flat, Lauren Merkin created a soft pouch clutch in gold snakeskin-embossed leather to match high-volume hair. Ideal for fine hair prone to flatness, Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher recreates volume at the roots by absorbing oils, instantly taking weight out of hair to give it lift. The translucent formula blends effortlessly to refresh hair and revive volume without a hint of residue. The result? Fresh, full, high-volume hair, any time.

For a sleek way to stash Full Repair™ Touch-up Flyaway Tamer, Lauren Merkin designed a slim, rectangular taupe color patent leather clutch with red suede lining to complement glossy, smooth hair. Touch-up Flyaway Tamer polishes broken strands, smoothing flyaways and frayed ends with Inca Inchi oil, an omega 3-packed oil that weightlessly restores dry, damaged hair. Just brush the wand over dry, styled hair for on-the-go touch-ups and an instant boost of shine.

Each of these must-have clutches includes the corresponding John Frieda® hair care product when purchased online at laurenmerkin.com. Available beginning November 2011, the clutches are the perfect way to stay chic at the season’s parties.

New Trend: Botox for Hair?

L’Oreal has released a new in-salon Professional Fiberceutic Fiber Filling Treatment. In other words, Botox for hair.

Celebrity stylist Negin Zand at Sally Hershberger’s West Hollywood Salone is already using the product on her celebrity clients, and the response has been great!

Who in particular? “Everyone,” she says, with a sly smile. And we know her list of clients includes Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Sheryl Crow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Bosworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cate Blanchett, Diane Lane, Meg Ryan, Evan Rachel Wood, Jessica Biel, Jane Fonda, Megan Fox, Carey Mulligan, to name just a few.

This new L’Oreal product finds the damage in the hair strands and smooths out the surface, hence the nickname Botox for Hair. Zand explains: “The product is really great for women with fine, dry or colored hair and hair that’s gotten damaged from blow drying and flat-ironing. It makes the hair smoother, shinier, silkier. But it can only be professionally once applied every six weeks. Like everything, there can be too much of a good thing.”

The active molecule — trademarked as Intra-Cylane — is currently only available through salons and must be applied by hair-dressers. It is washed into the hair using a shampoo, and then once the hair has been towel dried, more of the chemical is added in serum form. Inside word is that L’Oreal will soon launch a range of consumer Botox for Hair shampoos and conditioners to be used in between the salon treatments. The treatment costs $100 at the Hershberger salon, located at 760 North La Cienega Boulevard, West Hollywood.

This new miracle product is just in time for the 2012 awards season. We’re gonna go on record predicting a major hair trend: shiny, silky hair on the nominees and presenters at the Critics Choice, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Independent Spirit Awards and the Oscars.

I would be happy to offer my hair up as a test dummy if anyone local is looking to try it out! This helps explain why most these female celebs have amazing hair!

So I Googled this product, and did find that you can buy it on Amazon, although that kinda scares me.
