Hair Styling Tips for Beginners and a José Eber Giveaway

Jose-Eber-Giveaway-and-Review

 

I know that many of you are experts when it comes to styling your hair, but I have a feeling a few of you are like me. . .challenged with difficult to style tresses that only look perfect when styled by a professional.  As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, the fabulous people at José Eber provided me with 3 of their expert styling tools which I’ve been using and practicing with for the last couple of months: the World’s Fastest Flat Iron, the Trio Clipless Curling Iron and the Infrared Blow Dryer.

 

There are so many how-to videos and tutorials available online that you can check out, so instead I thought I would share a few tips that I’ve discovered while using these products…some I’ve read about in the past and some I’ve discovered through trial and error.

 

Blow-Dryer-Tips-For-Beginners

The Infrared Blow Dryer uses a far infrared light to heat the hair shaft from the inside out, and decreases drying time by 50%.  It is incredibly powerful, and Justin called it a power tool.  Justin has super fine hair, while mine is very thick, but both of us love using this hair dryer.  It has really made a big difference with the amount of frizz in my hair, reducing it greatly.

 

Flat-Iron-Tips-For-Beginners

 

The World’s Fastest Flat Iron claims to heat to full temperature in 5 seconds, and boy, does it ever.  I am shocked by how quickly it heats up, which saves me so much time in the morning when I’m running late for work.  No more waiting for the straightener to warm up.  It smoothly glides over my hair, and does not pull at the hair shaft like other flat irons I’ve used.  I love this flat iron!

 

Clipless-Curling-Iron-Beginners-Tips

 

The Trio Clipless Curling Iron Iron comes with 3 interchangeable clipless barrel sizes to achieve several different curl and wave sizes.  I’ve exclusively used the 25mm barrel, but I’m excited to try the other 2 as well.  The curling iron creates a long-lasting, smooth curl and/or wave.  Each time I’ve curled my hair, the curl has held in my hair for 2 full days.

 

*Products were provided by José Eber, however this is not a sponsored post.  I chose to write about these products because I truly love them.

    This is so great! I have a Jose Eber curling wand and I love it (although it took me a bit to learn how to use it without burning myself haha). I could use a new hair dryer though!

    I would choose the blow dryer because I already have that straightener, which I love and a clipless curling iron from them!

    If I win I will go with the curling iron. Admittedly I don’t own a curling iron firstly because I did not what size to buy and secondly I was scared to try one for myself. But with the ease you curled your hair I have mustered the courage to try one.

    What a great giveaway Jenny! I’m stuck between the blow dryer or the flat iron. Since my hair is naturally wavy it’s rare I use curling iron.

    Although currently, I’m loving how my blowdryer is making a high pitched squealing noise when in use (it’s 8 years old), a new curling iron would never hurt a girl… I hear that Jose Eber’s hair products are fantastic, and a hair dryer with a diffuser would be fantastical!

    All 3 looks are awesome, but I must say your hair looks so flawless and voluminious even with the blow dry. Looking great without overworking it 🙂
    How shine the sleek straight look is. Beautiful either way.

    BUT I must say, how can you do this to your germany blogger friend? Excluding me from the giveaway breaks my heart ;-(. BUT having an american citizens boyfriends helps right? 🙂 hehehehe. You can ship it to his adress and I can use those products when I am visiting or moving there in a year plus it saves him time to go to the drugstore and getting me hair tools 🙂 JUST SAYING 😀
