The Easter Bun

by Remington Ready April 2, 2012

On a holiday where there are eggs to find and chocolate bunnies to eat, you most likely want to quick and easy hair style while still looking festive. The Easter bun, also known as the braided bun, has been seen on countless celebrities like Heidi Klum, Lauren Conrad, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristen Bell. Luckily for those of us who don’t have a team of hair stylists, this high fashion look only takes minutes to create. 

Step 1: Comb out your hair using a flat brush to remove any tangles.


Step 2: Use an elastic hair tie to pull your hair into a low pony tail. Separate the pony tail into three pieces and braid it until you’ve reached the end of your hair. Secure the end with your second elastic hair tie.

 *Tip: A good way to measure where your bun should be located is by line up your pony tail with the top of your ears.


Step 3: Wrap your braided hair around the base of your pony tail to create the bun and make sure the end of your braid is tucked under the bun. Bobby pin the outside of your bun to your head.  


Step 4: Spray with hairspray to secure your bun.


Step 5: Easter is colorful holiday, so don’t be afraid to add an accessory to brighten up your bun like this Turquoise flower clip.


Voilà, you have a beautiful Easter bun in minutes!

Back to Basics: Brushes

by Remington Ready March 5, 2012

Back to Basics

Sometimes everyone needs a 101 course on beauty basics, because let’s face it, bits of information slip through the cracks. So the main lesson today will be that, like makeup brushes, not all hair brushes are created equal.


1. Cushion Brush: Create smooth touchable hair or use with your blow dryer for a punch of volume. These brushes are best for detangling dry hair (remember – it is always best if wet hair is detangled with a wide toothed comb!)as it conforms to the shape of the scalp and its cushion helps absorb some of the shock that can damage delicate hair.


2. Paddle Brush: Similar to the cushion brush, this fella is a great detangler, especially for long hair. Because the brush head is so wide, it can penetrate thick hair and its bristles provide a gentle massage and spreads hair’s natural oils, leaving you with a smooth and shiny finish.


3. Vent Brush: This brush is a beginner’s bff. It’s basic and can help you dry your hair quickly if used with a blow dryer. The large holes, or vents, running through its back help hair circulate when blow drying.


4. Round Brush: Perfect for adding va-va-volume or for a DIY blow-out. The barrel is specially designed to allow air to pass through helping to accelerate your drying time, while its large size allows you to lift the roots, giving hair more body.


5. Grooming Brush: Last minute touch-ups are dominated by this little gem! The grooming brush is designed to add a shiny smooth finish to hair and rejuvenate any hairstyle throughout the day.


What brush do you use every day?

Our Curl Crush

by Remington Ready February 20, 2012

Curl Crush


Who isn't after those luscious curls seen on stars and in magazines all the time? While practice makes perfect with killer curls, one thing that helps is a curling wand! For those of you that aren't familiar with the tool, a curling wand is a clipless curling iron. One of the favorites among the Remington Team and our fans is the TStudio Pearl Ceramic Styling Wand. The beauty of this tool is that its cone design can create a variety of curls without the annoying clap mark that some curling irons leave, giving you with a more natural look. It also has crushed pearl infused barrel, leaving hair shinier and smoother. Trends and styles come and go, but smooth and silky hair is always in style!


Here's our secret to creating crush worthy beachy curls with the Pearl Styling Wand:


What you will need: protective spray/argan oil, duckbill clip, Remington TStudio Pearl Ceramic Styling Wand, light holding hairspray.


1. Apply protective spray or argan oil to the ends of your hair.


2. Part your hair from ear to ear and pin up the top portion of your hair with a duckbill clip. You will start curling at the bottom and work your way up. If you have very thick hair, you may want to portion off smaller sections.


3. Put the included heat protective glove on your free hand.


4. Point the tip of the wand towards the ground. Starting at the barrel's base and working towards the tip, wrap sections of hair away from your face. Tight curls = thinner sections, loose curls = thicker sections.


5. Once the bottom portion is done, make another part through hair from upper temple to upper temple, pin up the top portion with the duckbill clip and curl. Once the middle section is curled, unpin the top section of hair and curl*.


6. Once your hair has cooled, soften the curls by gently breaking them apart with your fingers. To finish - add hairspray!



*Insider tip: for va-va-volume, back comb the last section of your hair before curling it.
