Meg hair! All of you know I have “difficult hair” I’m sure it’s fascinating to listen to my complaints. Almost as fascinating as “boy, cold for this time of year” or “wow, my allergies are killing me!” Really heady stuff.
I have found my new dream tool! No, it’ not a new boyfriend. It’s the most amazing, easy and cool way to add body or any type of curl WITHOUT a curler. I know. Stay with me here.
I’m a nightmare with curling irons. I don’t know if it has something to do with being left-handed or what but I can’t work the damn things. I always end up with weird kinks or dents or I burn myself. I’m very graceful.
When I wanted to add body I would heat up my archaic, hot rollers. I’m not into tight poodle curls, it would always seem I would have plenty of the small roller’s left in the case and would go right through the biggest, fattest ones. I also am slightly (ha! Slightly) unorganized and 50% of the time would be searching for “Now, what did I do with the roll fastener?” Look around and end up having to MacGyver some at home DIY clip to act as a replacement.
Wednesday, my hair life, as I know it, changed! I went to an even where I was introduced to the TopStyler. The creator’s Dean Banotwetz and Linda Flowers (of Instyler fame) showed me a few, easy tricks and I am hooked! This is the first tool that I got the very first time and I’ll been stuck on it since. Let me break it down for you on how it works.
UPDATE-ADDED A PIC AFTER I USED IT!
I’m on the right. This was at the AMC Premiere Party for their upcoming series “Hell on Wheels.” My hair was limp and flat that day and I was running around like crazy in the day. I grabbed my dry shampoo, sprayed my hair and added the Topstyler Ceramic Shells. I used 3 fingers and large sections of my hair to curl. Total time? 20 minutes ish. Let them out and had the nice bouncy, big curls for the nights event. I will take another photo, but you can see how much body it makes my hair look like it has. I really do love it.
1. NO ACTUAL ROLLERS! IF YOU HAVE FINGERS YOU CAN DO THIS!
Yes, all you need to do is figure out how big you want your curls to be. Because I like Big Bounce, I take Large sections of my hair and wrap it around THREE fingers. Then I pinch the curl and apply the heated ceramic shell around it. The hells are hot but not hot enough to burn your fingers (or singe your hair!)
If you want tight curls use 1 or 2 fingers and less hair. It also comes with a DVD and an easy flip book that shows you how to do a million different looks, pin curls, beach waves-you name it.
2. IT IS QUICK! the ceramic shells take 6 minutes to heat up. The whole rolling my fingers bit took maybe 2 minutes. I applied my makeup (15 minutes ish) took out the shells, flipped my head and voila! FABULOUS!
3. I LOVE COMPLIMENTS. I GOT A TON! Megsroomie and Kristenosborne88 were the first! When I walked in I got “What did you do to your hair? It’s never looked better?” Followed by “Seriously, your hair is so shiny and healthy looking. Where were you?” So we have the females covered. When I went to my friend Martin’s from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for dinner HE SAID (A HE!) “Nutmeg, did you get more extension hair put in? Looks really nice. Very full!”
I swear, you will LOVE this! It is so easy and so effective! If you have QVC Dean is going on today at 3pm to talk about and demo it. This is really, really awesome. It’s the first time I’ve ever felt like I needed to send a “Thank-you” card to a tool creator!
