3 Steps to Gorgeous Curls!

Fall is almost here, which means beautiful crisp weather with little humidity.. translation: Let the great hair days begin! In the summer, it’s always too hot to do any kind of heat styling to your hair and such a waste of time if you’re swimming or doing any kind of outdoor activities. But now with this great fall weather, there aren’t any excuses to have a bad hair day. Get voluminous curls like Selena Gomez.

Love this!!!! Perfection in a pre treatment thermal spray. I love that is protects my hair without weighing it down or leaving it stringy. This is a must have before using my curling iron.

First spray a generous amount of Philip B. Oud Royal Thermal Protection Spray on damp or dry hair. This thermal spray will elevate shine and prevent breakage and split ends as you style, while also adding a light, seductive scent.


If you’re looking for a great and affordable curling iron check out the John Frieda  Volume Curls 1½ inch Barrel curling iron. It’s a user friendly and creates big, beautiful curls.  I love how fast it heats up, just 30 seconds and I can start curling my hair. With variable temps I can set the iron low or high depending on how tight I want the curls.

The twist free cord, and cool tip make it very user friendly. The smooth clips means it doesn’t get stuck in my hair or pulls.  Smooth frizz free curls  and waves that last all day.  A great iron if you are looking for big loose curls or waves.


Next, take your John Frieda by Conair Volume Curls 1 ½ inch Curling Iron and begin sectioning off hair, starting with the bottom layers. Curl hair away from your face to create more volume. For an uneven, messy look, curl randomly starting at different areas on each section.

I have such a tough time finding a hair spray that works with my tempermental hair. Either it doesn’t hold the curl or it leaves it crunchy and stray like. Finally a hair spray made for my crazy hair. I  spritz  a light coat and comb through before using my curling iron. Then once I have style it finish with a quick spray. My hair stays soft and bouncy and my curls last all day.

Finish off with a light spray of KMS HAIRSTAY medium hold spray to lock in the style while allowing flexibility and movement to your hair.



Disclosure: I was sent press samples for potential review. I was not paid to write this post and all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Get the Look: Reese Witherspoon at the ‘Wild’ premiere!

We’ve got all the details about how to get the hairstyle that celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel created for Reese Witherspoon at the Wild premiere in Los Angeles.

THE LOOK: Modern yet classic – accented with a 60’s inspired heavy side swept bangs and a simple chic bun


· To begin, Abergel created a very deep side part on towel dried hair and applied John Frieda Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir to create beautiful shine and pliability.

· Next, he applied John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion from the roots through mid shaft to create volume.

· Then, he blow dried the hair smooth with a round brush creating side swept bangs for a 60’s feel.

· Once the hair was dry, he took a fine tooth comb and teased the crown making sure to smooth it with a paddle brush. Once the shape was achieved, he locked it in by spraying John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.

· He tamed any fly aways by rubbing a dime size amount of John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème and running it through the hair.

· Abergel then pulled the hair into a low ponytail staying about 4” above the nape of the neck and secured it with an elastic. He then twisted the hair into an “S” shape knot and pinned it in place.

· To finish, he sprayed John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray to set the look.
