Decades Past 1970’s Inspired Hair

hairfinishedContinuing on with the 70’s inspired makeup tutorial I posted last week I have a 70’s inspired hair video for you.

In the video I used the BabylissPro C Styler which was one of the fabulous hair tools that IGlamour sent to me in the past few months to do some looks/reviews with. Full review of the C Styler will be up after I post the video on how to use it for curls and waves.

I also used BabylissPro Argon oil that I purchased to trial, One n Only Ceramic Silk Curling Iron Glaze and Schwarzkopf 10 carat shine finishing spray.

Boho Waves/Curls with the Babyliss Pro Conical Wand

My latest video on how to Boho Waves features a product I’ve been interested in for a while now, the Babyliss Pro Conical Wand (large size). IMG_0068

The main reason I’ve been wanting to try one of these out, well besides the fact that Babyliss products generally get a rave review is that it has no tong. I have been using traditional curling tongs for years now and wanted to see the difference.

There are obviously no tong marks left on the hair which is its first plus. Other things that I think need mentioning are

    • Long Cord – Great when your power source is a bit out of the way.
    • 25 Heat Settings – Anyone can find the perfect temperature for their hair type, curls last!
    • On and Off Switch – This is more of a personal preference as I don’t really like styling tools that turn on as soon as you plug them in.
    • Hair isn’t ‘dulled down’ – Looks nice and shiny after
    • Cool Tip – At the end of the wand so no burnt fingertips!
    • Heat Protectant Mat – I use this with all my heat styling tools now.

All that and its pretty easy to use and also heats up fast.

To use all you have to do is hold the wand upside down and wrap hair around! Curl smaller sections for a more defined look or larger sections for a wavier look. You can also either favour the top or bottom of the wand for different sized curls.

On to the Video

Beach Hair

The wand itself retails at $94.95 on I-Glamour.com and was provided for the review/tutorial. Other products used from i-glamour were the One n Only Ceramic Silk Curling Iron Glaze on sale for $8.60!(from $17.19!) and the BabylissPro Heat Protection Finger Shields $11.95 (for 2). Both of these were bought by me. If you check out the website make sure to stop by the clearance section there are many, many bargains to be had there!

In the video I also used the Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Hairspray (also sent for review/tutorial) which is actually perfect for this look as you do want it to have slight hold but it has to be ‘movable/tousled’ as well.

The finished Result -

Dip dyed with boho waves hair

 

Also sorry the video is so bright, Note to self: don’t film in the middle of the day with the curtains open!

40 Questions Tag

I decided I do a tag that’s been making the rounds.

(I did a tutorial for the makeup in the video I just need to edit it!)

I missed a few questions. I do have freckles and no I don’t or ever have used Proactive, (I’ve heard to many horror stories plus my skins dry enough already).

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!

New Series! BASICS!!!

I thought it might be helpful to start a series on Basic Steps that I can refer to in other video’s. I have already started with Foundation and that video is live now.

I will focus on basic techniques, not only in makeup but hair as well!

Up coming posts/videos will be focusing on (but not limited to) Contouring, Highlighting and Blush, Eyebrows, Mascara, Liners and Lips.

With hair I will do a regular wet se, cheats set, Blow dry , and other quick tips to get a great hairstyle in a jiffy!

(I am also interested in requests for other ‘Basics’ you may be interested in)

Ok onto the First

FOUNDATION

Products

Smashbox 2 in 1 Hybrid Primer

Benefit Dr. Feelgood

Revlon Colourstay Foundation
