magic monday - luscious lady locks

As someone who wishes she woke up with sultry, bombshell hair à la Lana Del Rey, but isn't willing to spend more than half an hour getting ready ... I've made a new best friend. Hot Rollers. LDR - new age bombshell

Hot Rollers are the perfect way to get curls so sultry, you'd swear you stepped off a Victoria's Secret runway. They're more or less foolproof (bonus!) and take minutes to set.

Here's how:

Heat up your rollers. I normally flip the switch on mine as I'm headed to the kitchen to make my coffee. After I've got my first cup in hand, it's time to begin!

Starting with the top of your head, separate hair into 2-inch sections (sections should not be wider than the roller itself) Spray each section with your favorite hair spray (ours is the Kevin Murphy Session Spray) and roll hair onto the roller. Set in place with a roller-clip.

For added volume, remember to over direct the hair forward, while holding taut as you roll.

I normally roll the center section of my hair (from forehead to nape) then go on to roll two rows on each side.

When every hair is nestled ever-so-snuggly in hot roller heaven, I slap on some rouge, and grab a bite to eat. Your rollers are ready to remove when they've cooled completely. Most days I get distracted, and by the time they've cooled down, I'm only halfway done my breakfast. If you're in a bit of a rush, just give them a blast of cool air with your hair dryer.

Now for the fun part. Unclip each roller, and unleash the curls. When you've removed all the rollers from your hair, run your fingers through and give your head a shake.

Next, for that even, relaxed bombshell look, run a natural bristled paddle brush over your tresses. We love this boar bristle brush from Dannyco. (Free when you purchase any two Osis or Euphora products in our boutique!)

The Curling Iron In this day and age the flat iron gets all the love.  Intermittently I've been using my curling iron, and I forgot how great it is.  Don't get me wrong, the flat iron is a great all around tool and can do so much, but the curling iron?  The curling iron does not get enough love in this era.

The curling iron has the ability to give more of a full look.  It also makes giving texture to hair quite easy.  The flat iron does take some skill to use as a curling tool.  You need to be be swift with your movements as not to put a 90 degree kink into your locks.  The curling iron is simple and basic and doesn't require much dexterity.  That being said, the curling iron can be a little complicating.

How does one begin to make a decision about the type of iron to get? Well, you can always start by asking your stylist.  He/she will be able to guide you down a good path and should offer all the advice and tips that they know.  There is pretty much an iron for just about any length of hair and any type of hair.

The lovely curling iron is also a bit gentler than a flat iron because they are less hot and don't have two continuous heated plates squeezing the sweetness out of your hairs.   Any type of regular heat styling may leave your hair looking dull and unhealthy so keep that in mind when deciding your styles.

I'm looking forward to this upcoming week of hair.  I'm going to get a few curls into some of my clients hairs and start a revolution!!! That's the fresh perspective...
