HAIR.

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos?
I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing.
And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂

The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got mine for 60% off doing this!).  There are a lot of other great options, but I'm not very skilled at those (curling wand seems to be most common, using the flat iron to curl).  With this one, you literally clamp you hair and press a button, hold it for 5-7 seconds, and ta-da!  They post tutorials on Instagram often - you can make a few different types of curls depending on how you use it.  I typically use the curling iron diagonally for normal/beachy waves.  If you use it horizontally, you'll have those crazy glam curls/Princess Kate bouncy hair.  For me, it's been worth the investments as far as hair products go.  Anyways, here are the videos...more info in them.   The other products I talk about are linked below.  Also, hair goals: Liz Adams, Haute Off the Rack, and Jillian Harris - always. 

This video is more about the products I use and how I dry my hair.   If you want to skip the fluff, go to video two.


And this one is more about the curling/Beachwaver.   Big takeaways - if you want lots of curl that lasts all day, use smaller sections and hold for longer.  Bigger curls that don't stay as tight - larger sections and don't hold as long.
