I had a set of hot rollers by Remington that I got in high school, and it lasted me a very long time. I found it recently, but I couldn’t use it because I couldn’t find the clips (that had to be stored separately from the machine). So I ended up buying this Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Heated Clip Setter hoping it would be as good as my old hot rollers. This setter comes with 20 velvety soft rollers in two sizes — 8 medium 1″ rollers and 12 large 1 1/4″ rollers. The hinged clips are also heated.
I recently bought this Conair 3/4″ (19mm) Instant Heat Spiral Iron on a whim. I hadn’t tried one of these spiral irons before, so I was curious how my hair would turn out if I used it. This Conair iron heats up in 30 seconds and has 25 heat settings, including a turbo boost for difficult styling spots. Here’s how my hair looked after using this iron for the first time!
I went to the salon to touch up the low-maintenance blonde highlights I wrote about back in July. Since then, my hair grew out about 3 inches. I really liked the highlights I got, but I wanted a little something to make my hair a bit different. So I decided to get some pink highlights mixed in with the side sections of blonde highlights I have near each ear. I’ve never had my hair dyed pink before, so I thought it would be fun (and it matches the pink color on this website’s logo)!
Usually “low-maintenance highlights” for me means peek-a-boo lowlights that only cover a small triangular section of hair behind each ear. Although the placement of these types of lowlights can look great for several months without needing touch-up, they don’t add too much color to my hair. This time around, I wanted to come up with a low-maintenance highlight look that can be very bold yet can still grow out without the roots being too visible.
Hair U Wear, the company behind Jessica Simpson and Ken Paves’ Hairdo extensions, has a line called POP (Put On Pieces). POP is a collection of clip-in hair extensions that can be used to add length, volume, texture, and/or highlights to your hair. These extensions are made of 100% human hair. The POP extensions that I own are Color Strips, which come in bright colors. They provide instant highlights or lowlights!
