A beautiful hairstyle doesn’t have to be elaborately created, require an excessive amount of time to do, or even necessitate an expensive visit to the hair salon. With just the right hair styling tools and a little know-how, you can have great looking hair in just minutes.
To help you get two looks for your locks, today’s hairstyle tutorial shows you how to use two Conair styling tools to go from work-to-weekend easily and effortlessly.
How To Get a Renaissance-Inspired Romantic Hairstyle with InfinitiPRO by Conair® Curl Secret®
One of the most popular Fall fashion trends this season is inspired by old world romance. From embellished handbags and vintage lace dresses to baroque style gowns, a beautiful way to accessorize this whimsical look is to adorn your hair with a jeweled clip.
This hairstyle is especially great for date night, weddings and special events, or even holiday parties. By simply adding a glamorous accent to your hair, it makes a statement without requiring you to do an elaborate hairstyle.
To get a Renaissance-inspired, romantic hairstyle, you need only 4 products: InfinitiPRO by Conair® Curl Secret®, bobby pins, a wide tooth comb, and a jeweled hair accessory.
The InfinitiPRO by Conair® Curl Secret® is a revolutionary hair styling device that takes the guesswork out of curling your hair. This innovative tool makes it easy to create salon-quality spiral curls and ringlets in about 20-minutes. The “unique, patented curl chamber allows your hair to be gently held and heated from all directions to create a consistent and perfect curl, every time.” Plus, it has a built-in safety sensor, which prevents tangled hair.
Step 1: After washing and drying your hair straight, use a wide tooth comb to part your hair down the middle.
Step 2: Plug in the InfinitiPRO by Conair® Curl Secret® to let it warm-up (which takes about 30-seconds); and turn the Heat Setting to “Lo” and Curl Setting to “10”. Starting with the front, top section of your hair, grab a small piece of hair (appx. 2/3″ wide) and place it directly into the InfinitiPRO by Conair® Curl Secret®.
Ensure the opening of the curl chamber is always facing towards your head. Make sure that the side that reads “This Side Towards Head” is facing inward toward your head. Wait for the red blinking light to remain solid before starting. The device will emit a series of single beeps (letting you know the hair is curling); when it’s finished curling that section of hair, you will then hear consecutive beeps. Release the wand and let your hair out of the device.
Step 3: Continue curling small sections of your hair throughout your head until your hair is completely curly. These curls will resemble semi-tight spiral curls, which is expected. After all the curls are done, gently separate the spirals with your fingers, to loosen up the curls, making them look more like tousled ringlets (rather than prom-night spirals). The goal is to make your hair look a little “un-done”, as if you naturally woke up with bouncy curls.
Step 4: On one side of your head, sweep back a small section of the front of your hair toward your ear. Using a bobby pin (or two), secure the hair.
Step 5: Conceal the bobby pin with a jewel-encrusted hair accessory. It’s that simple!
How To Get a Sleek, Low Ponytail with InfinitiPRO by Conair® Diamond Brilliance™ Diamond-Infused Ceramic Smoothing Hot Brush
When it comes to workdays, my go-to look is sleek, sophisticated, and understated. Since I have limited time in the mornings, I want a fuss-free hairstyle that takes less than 5 minutes to do. That’s why ponytails have always been a signature hairstyle for me. But, I’m not talking about the messy ponytail you’d wear to the gym.
To make a ponytail look more pulled-together and professional, today’s hairstyle tutorial shares a few secrets to looking more like a model off-duty than a gym rat on the weekend.
To help you get a sleek, stylish ponytail in literally a few minutes, all you need is the InfinitiPRO by Conair® Diamond Brilliance™ Diamond-Infused Ceramic Smoothing Hot Brush.
With just 3 products (the InfinitiPRO by Conair® Diamond Brilliance™ Diamond-Infused Ceramic Hot Paddle Brush, a wide tooth comb, and a stylish ponytail holder), in just a few minutes, you can easily create a sleek, low ponytail that’s suitable for a work day or even a business cocktail party.
Even if you have curly or wavy hair (like me), this tool makes it unbelievably simple to straighten your hair. Plus, it helps to eliminate frizz and boost shine, while delivering smooth, straight tresses. This device “combines diamond-infused ceramic with advanced ionic technology to transform hair into silky, straight styles.” With three hair settings, it was designed to work with all hair types, from thin, delicate hair to thick, wavy hair.
Bottom line: If you can brush your hair, you can straighten your hair. It’s that easy.
Above is a ‘before picture’, showing my naturally wavy hair.
Step 1: To style my hair, I turned the heat setting to “medium”. Take 2″-sized sections of hair and run the brush along the under-side portion of the hair, pulling your hair taut from the bottom with your other hand. Go over each portion until fully smooth.
It helps to clip the top section of your hair up, so that you can make sure to fully straighten the bottom section of your hair.
As you can see (by the photo above), one side of my hair is still wavy, while the other is now completely straight.
After you have straightened each section of hair, you should be able to run your hands through your hair. You’ll notice how soft and silky your strands feel. Plus, your hair should get a boost in shine too (as shown above).
Step 2: Using a wide tooth comb, make a deep side-part on the top of your hair.
Step 3: Tightly pull your hair back into a low ponytail, and secure with a decorative hair accessory (that includes a built-in elastic hair band).
After your hair is styled, as an added option, you can run a glossing serum through the ends of your hair or use a shine-enhancing hairspray to keep your hairstyle in place.
