My Hair and Hair Inspiration

Some of you have asked about my hair, especially when I curl it and I thought I would share my favorite hair tools.  

My favorite hair look is when I curl it outwards (not towards the face) and keep it voluminous. 

My hair dryer of choice is the Hana hair dryer, I did a post on it here last year.  A year later it is still running strong and when I travel I actually miss my hair dryer.   Don’t you hate those tiny hair dryers they give you in hotel rooms?  It never does fully dry my hair.  

I typically curl my hair the day after I wash my hair, the texture is a bit rougher and holds the curl longer.  Recently the people at Misikko sent me a Babyliss Pro Ceramic 1.5″ Curling Iron and I wasn’t sure if it could be better than my Hot Tools Curling Iron I’ve had forever.  But after using it now for 3 weeks, I love it.  My hair gets a big damaged after time from using the curling iron, but the Babyliss is ceramic so after curling my hair my strands still feel soft.  Since receiving it I haven’t turned back to Hot Tools.  The clamp is not as tight (which I like), the heat is hot and goes up to 400 degree F, and the weight of the curling iron is lighter which I prefer.   It is nice to feel my hair so soft after curling it.  Keeping my curls in all night is still my favorite hair spray by Tresemme

Misikko provides adorable gift packaging too (they add additional little gifts like shampoo/conditioner and other hair products).  

I get inspired to change my hair up a bit when I’m on pinterest.  These inspirations are great and motivate me to try something different every once in a while.  After doing my makeup and getting dressed, my go to is the curled hair above, but next time I’ll add a touch of bling or pile my hair up high to change it up a bit.  

Messy curls with a lovely pin – I could do this!

I don’t think I could do this myself, but I love looking at braid tutorials.  

I love this entire glam look.  I’m over the donut bun but love this version of it.

What are you favorite hair tools and how do you change up your hair look?

*Please note the hair dryer and curling iron was gifted to me but all reviews and opinions are my own and I would not post anything that I do not believe is true.

    I have the babyliss curling iron too and love it. It curls thick long hair so well, which I have like yours. Also I love that polka dot skirt look! You can check out my looks for the week here:

    I loove Misikko's blogger packages. I got the Hana blowdryer sent to me last year, and they left me a little monkey inside the box. Loved it! [I wish my hair was as thick as yours!! So beautiful]
