The BabylissPro Triple Barrel Waver

As the title states this post is going to focus on the BabylissPro Triple Barrel Waver Iron, (long name eh!), The one I used is the regular size but if you want bigger waves there is also a larger sized one available. I mentioned in the video that this is quick but really I meant to say that this is probably the easiest type of iron to use. All you have to do is clamp down on the hair and then repeat until you reach the ends. Depending on the size of the pieces your ‘waving’ will determine how long it takes you to style. I’d also like to mention that you don’t necessarily have to wave the entire length of the hair, you could for example just do the mid-lengths or just the ends.

So onto the tutorials, the first I am basically showing you how to use it then a simple twist to finish off the look and the second is how to continue onto a textured up-do.

 

Besides adding waves it also gives the hair volume and I find its also great to use before a up-do as it gives the up-do a great ‘messy/textured’ finish.

 

Both of these styles are incredible easy to do and perfect for summer (or winter, autumn and spring I ‘spose!)

Pro’s for this tong are the same as the conical wand I wrote about last month, the cords long, variable heat settings – the on/off and dial are the same. But I must mention that this iron is on the heavier side, I put this down to it being like three tongs in one so it kind of makes sense it would be.

As always make sure your using a heat protectant before heat styling and as a general rule finish off with your preferred hairspray!

Hair Tutorial- Oscars Inspired Messy Up-do / Bun for day or night

http://www.youtube.com/user/Madamebfatale

During the awards season I noticed a few messy up-do’s. This is my version of it.

This can easily be worn day or night and is best achieved with dirty hair, (as with most up-do’s). I would recommend  using a hairspray to finish, I just seem to be losing everything lately!

This style can be as neat or as messy as you would like and is a great hairstyle to try if you don’t have much time or need to wash your hair but want a ‘pulled together’ look.

If you don’t have hair extensions to add volume to your do you can easily use a rolled up stocking with the toe cut out and thread your ponytail through it. Or you can use a rat.

The makeup worn in this video is the Napoleon Perdis Walter Runway Inspired look.

The shine spray I used was by Evo that was sent to me, I do have to say its lovely. It smells like watermelon candy!

After the Wet Set – Retro Styling

This is a super quick way to style your hair after you have curled it. This is a great style to do the day before you plan on washing it.

I would recommend only using Hairspray and a shine spray, nothing else will be required!

Basics : Wet Set – Longer Lasting Curls

A wet set in my opinion is the best way to get longer lasting curls.  Its also great because it gives your hair a break from heat styling.

The smaller  the roller the tighter the curl. I like to do my set with smaller rollers so the first day I have tight curls, second they are a bit messier and on the third day I usually brush through the curls  so its smooth from the root and the curls are at the ends. Some times I leave them for a fourth day and do an up-style.

Getting the curls to last

  • Don’t use too much product (it will weigh the hair down)
  • Use a wide toothed comb on the curls, only if you need to (not a brush)
  • Make sure that the hair is completely dry before taking them out

The products I used in the video were Redken Curl Spray and Garnier XXL Mouse.
