Odds are, all of us have used a straightener in our lifetimes. In fact, most of us use them on a daily basis, whether to curl or straighten our hair! Little did I know that there is a science to picking the perfect straightener for your hair. Here is everything you need to know to find the perfect flat iron for you!

Size:

Mini flat iron–  These  1/2” flat irons are perfect for bangs and fly away hairs! They are also perfect for travel because they are so small.

1” flat iron: These straighteners are perfect for short, fine hair.revlon-perfect-heat-ceramic-straighteners-model-rvst2029cpk2-1-12-plates

1 ½” flat iron: These are great for hair that is not thin but not thick, it is right in the middle! They are also great for thick, coarse, and curly long hair.

2” flat iron: This straightener is great for long, thick hair.

Type:

Ceramic: This is the type that I have! Ceramic plates are less likely to burn your hair and allow for an even distribution of heat.

Titanium: Titanium plate heat up the fastest, but be careful because if you clamp the plates on your hair for too long you can burn your hair!

Tourmaline: Tourmaline is a mineral that is crushed up and then used to coat the plates of your flat iron. It helps make your hair shinier, straighter, and less frizzy than other straighteners!

Now you are fully educated in the art of choosing the perfect straightener for your hair!

Products are a girl’s best friend.  Whether its perfume to make us smell good, hairspray to keep our hair in check, sunscreen to protect our skin, or foundation to cover those pesky pimples, products keep us feeling and looking beautiful; but did you know that overusing products happens too often?  Most girls don’t know the proper amount of what they’re using.  I’ll break it down into an easy guide of how much to use for each of my favorite beauty essentials.Chelsea Crockett- quarter size of conditioner

  • Overdoing it on conditioner is easy, especially if your hair is really tangled; but using too much can cause your hair to be greasy! Next time, try using an amount the size of a quarter!
  • Spraying your hair too close can leave it looking stiff or clumped together. Spray your hairspray approx. 4-6 inches from your hair.
  • Never have your flat iron or curling iron above 350 degrees! No one wants burnt hair!
  • Sunscreen can be oily and clog pores. Don’t use more than the size of a nickel to cover your face.
  • Using too much liquid foundation can make you look “fake” or “cakey”. You only need about the size of a dime to cover your entire face. You’re pretty just the way you are!
  • If you use a foam styling product to make your hair curly or to give it volume, use an amount the size of an egg!
  • Never swipe your mascara more than 10 times or it’ll look clumped!

Using the proper amount of product is key to getting the most use out of your beauty essentials!

XOXO,

How to Fix a Bad Haircut

Imagine you’re in the moment, “I want bangs and lots of layers!”  Oops, bad mistake. Your hair already has a lot of layers and you have a small forehead already. …

Imagine you’re in the moment, “I want bangs and lots of layers!”  Oops, bad mistake. Your hair already has a lot of layers and you have a small forehead already.  Now it’s just a mess!  The bangs are too short and you look like you have all different lengths of hair.  What do you do now?!  Don’t worry; I’ve got a few brilliant tips to save you from a bad haircut.

  • If you have too many layers, making your hair look really choppy, avoid the flat iron.  Try curling your ends, curling some more than others to make pieces Chelsea Crockett- bad hair cutshorter or longer.  This gives the illusion of blended hair.  Also, slipping on a headband will camouflage stubborn short layers.
  • Hate your new bangs?  No problem!  Lucky for you, there are so many cute half up, half down hairstyles to get those pesky bangs out of the way.  Try twisting your bangs and pinning them up or wearing a hair scarf as a head band.  If you like your bangs but wish they were longer, try blow drying them from above and brushing them straight down.  Once straightened, they will appear longer.
  • If your cut is uneven, avoid the flat iron at all time.  Try curling your hair or call your stylist.  They will usually fix that for free!

Don’t freak out if you hate your new hair!  There’s always another options!

Love,

Chelsea
