T|Studio PROtect Straightener: How To Get Straight, Sleek, Healthy-Looking Hair

by Remington Ready March 2, 2015

 

Hello my loves! Today's vid is on getting healthy, straight & sleek hair! It's a review/demo of the Remington PROtect flat iron, which I am absolutely in love with! I'm usually not a fan of straightening my hair because of the damage, however this flat iron just makes my hair feel so nourished and moisturized that I absolutely love it! If you have super curly or frizzy hair, this flat iron will get rid of all of that!

I feel that this iron works best with the vapor feature turned on, however you can use it without and get great results too. Remember that if you run out of the Macadamia Treatment, DISTILLED water is the right substitute. Regular tap water shouldn't be used.

You can purchase the PROtect in Target and Walmart stores beginning March 1st! You can't miss out on this high quality flat iron for the drugstore price.. I'm literally so in love, and I know you will be too!

Your hair needs some kick-butt products to protect against the heat of styling tools and any damage the extreme winter weather can cause. But what products will give your hair the help it needs? We went around the Remington offices asking women about their favorite products for damaged hair and they are thrilled to share some of their beauty secrets with you.

Davines Oi Oil

Valentine's Fashion

by Remington Ready January 29, 2015

 

 

Date Night

Going on a classic Valentine’s Day date with your man? Maybe it’s that new restaurant you’ve been meaning to try or your favorite hotspot downtown. Your go-to outfit should be a classic red dress. Keep it chic with a flowing shift dress or try a sexy bodycon dress. Layer on some elegance with a sparkling gold or silver necklace and black pumps. Finish it off with a loose up-do and he won’t be able to take his eyes off of you.


Girls Night Out

Maybe Valentine’s Day is your night to celebrate with your single ladies! Hit the scene wearing something fun! Ditch the red for skinny jeans or a skirt in purple or pink. A peplum top is the perfect flirty piece that still keeps it classy, along with your favorite embellished necklace. Add an edgy touch with a leather jacket and your favorite high-heels that really make a statement. You’ll look fantastic while enjoying the night with some of your best friends! 


Staying In

Sometimes the best Valentine’s Day is one spent at home with your hubby, family or friends! Pop in a rom-com classic and open your favorite bottle of wine. Try an outfit that’s comfortable and add a Valentine’s Day touch. Put on a cute light pink sweater or sweatshirt and a cozy scarf. Some faded boyfriend jeans make a great relaxed-chic look. Top it off with some fun moccasins or Valentine’s socks and you’re ready for the perfect night in.

4 Beauty Trends for 2015

by Remington Ready January 23, 2015

 

Sombré is the new ombré! It’s a softer, more subtle color fade and an easier way to mix up hair color without going too extreme! Instead of going from dark brunette to light blonde, the color fades from dark brunette to light brunette or blends in color by going from dark brunette to dark red. The sombré also blends better, using highlights to work the color in more naturally. This is usually done with the “balayage” technique where color is painted on by hand instead of using traditional foil. So if you’re ready for a sombré color update, look for stylists in your area that specialize in balayage! 

 

 

 

Bold lip color is everywhere! But it’s out with the red and in with the new. The deep berry color is what we’re seeing most. Adding a rich elegance in darker shades, it varies with hints of either purple or pink. The key to wearing dark lipstick is the lip liner; make sure to have a defined edge if you’re trying this trend out! For more natural looks, try a rose color lipstick. This brings in the berry shades while keeping a more subtle and neutral tone.

 

For a berry color, we recommend "Raspberry" No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick or "Blissful Berry" Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color.

 

For a rose color try "Plum" Botanics Lip Stain.

 

 

 

These waves are bringing the 40s back— more retro-fabulous than ever. For shoulder length cuts, it’s all about the deep side part, sweep over, and dramatic waves. We’ve seen many variations of this look on the runway and red carpet, but it’s just as fitting for everyday hair styling. Don’t worry about the fuss of using salon clips to set hair in a zig-zag wave pattern, just use a wide waving wand like the TStudio Pink Silk Waving Wand. Brush out the waves for a softer look and create a side part, slicking back the shorter side. Keep volume across the sweeping bangs and you’ll be looking fresh and classic with these retro waves.

 

 

 

Eyes are really popping with bright, fun colors! From blue and turquoise to red and orange, eye make-up is getting more intense. It’s used as an eye liner or even complete eye shadow, but we suggest the more subtle eye liner highlight. Put on normal black eyeliner on the top and bottom lids, then just accent on the outside of the black liner with a pop of color (we suggest blue to start off with). Focus more on the bottom lid and outside corner, or go all out and blend it into brightly colored eye shadow!

 

We recommend Revlon Colorstay Eye Liner or NYX Slide on Pencil for easy-to-apply color options. 


Hat Hairstyles: Knotted Up-Do

by Remington Ready January 21, 2015

 

This up-do is more of a “low-do”, keeping the style below hat level! It’s Dutch-styled and unique, making you look like a skilled trendsetter without all the work.


Style Tip: If you have layered hair, pieces may fall out during the day. Just keep bobby pins handy to pin in any strays. It only adds to the look!

 

 

Tools: Bobby Pins

 

    1.  Start with natural hair, adding texture spray if needed.

 

    2.  Divide hair into four even sections.

 

    3.  Tie sections A and B together into a tight knot and secure with clip, then knot                sections C and D and clip.

 

    4.  Tie the center two strands, B and C, into a knot using a clip to hold sections A              and D in place.

 

    5.  Continue knotting each side and then the center until about 3-4” of ends are left.            Make sure to keep each knot tight!

 

    6.  Use bobby pins to secure the ends of the sections under the braided area.

 

    7.  Voila! Your knotted up-do is complete. Just add finishing spray as needed                   and throw on your hat! Pull the hat down so it’s just above the knotted hair.

 

Hat Hairstyles: Braided Pigtails

by Remington Ready January 16, 2015

 

Braided pigtails aren’t just for little girls anymore; it’s actually a super cute boho-chic braided style! It’s easy to do and the braids start low, so no need to worry about the hat getting in the way!

 

Style Tip: If you have a lot of layers, start the braids a little higher than right under the ear and keep it tighter as you braid. 

 

 

 

Tools: Double Knit Elastics 

 

    1.  Start with natural hair, and divide hair down the back of your head into two                    sections.

 

    2.  Begin on one side, dividing hair into three uneven sections. It’s best to have the            smallest section be from the back.

 

    3.  Braid the strands, keeping it tight for now. You can loosen them up later!

 

    4.  Repeat steps one and two on the other side.

 

    5.  Loosen up the braid to desired look. They may loosen up throughout the day, so            don’t make it too loose!

 

    6.  You’re all finished with this boho braid style! Just add finishing spray as needed            and top off with your winter hat. Pull it down so that it ends right where the braids          begin! 

 

Hat Hairstyles: Messy Waves

by Remington Ready January 16, 2015

 

Hats are natural teasers, so try this look to let the hat work for you! The natural messy waves are a perfect pair with the hat-teased roots.

 

Style Tip: Use root booster product or hairspray once the styling is finished. This will keep volume in the roots, while not letting the hat mess get too out-of-hand!

 

 

 

Tools: TStudio Pink Silk Waving Wand

 

    1.  Start with natural hair, adding texture spray if needed.

 
    2.  Gather hair into ponytail on top of head.

 
    3.  Curl a 1” section of hair with the TStudio Pink Silk Waving Wand. Remember to             not wrap the hair all the way to the end, leave the ast 1-2” end straight.

 

    4.  Continue curling until the whole ponytail is curled. 


    5.  Spray hair with hairspray, and then take out pony tail as gently as possible.


    6.  Separate curls and tease as needed. Do not tease too much, since the hat will             do a lot of that for you during the day! 

 

    7.  Your messy waves are ready to go! Just add finishing spray as needed and your           favorite winter hat. Enjoy the all-day messy look without a worry!
