Celebrity Hair Review: Katy Perry

June 8, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

One of my favorite artists is Katy Perry. She is ever-growing and lets nothing slow her down; it makes everyone love her even more. Another part of her that everyone loves is her spunky and edgy sense of style. When she first came out with her hit single “I Kissed A Girl” we were all in shock that someone would write a song about that but then as she became more famous and got even more comfortable in Hollywood, she started changing a few other things about her. For example, she started dressing in things like bras that shoot out whipped cream and started dying her hair different shades of pink and purple-even if they were wigs, we all learned to love her a little bit more.

Let’s face it, it’s so hard to get recognized in Hollywood today and Katy had her own way of doing so. Some of her songs have been considered borderline crazy-she falls in love with an alien in one song, she sings about kissing another girl and even has a song about sexual terms but that’s what kept her in touch with record companies-it kept them guessing. As fans, we’re also always guessing and wondering what she will do next with her fun yet kooky style.

Recently, Katy Perry filmed a movie about herself called Katy Perry: Part of Me. Although it’s not in theatres yet, in the previews you see many different hairstyles and colors that she sports and it may make you wonder a few things. How does she have such pretty hair after so many different styles and transformations? It’s so true, her hair is absolutely perfect and it never looks like there’s a strand out of place. Now of course she has a stylist that can make her hair look like brand new each day and she probably wears wigs half the time but sometimes it is her real hair that is colored blue or hot pink. And how does she keep such healthy hair?

That’s just it, she has a stylist. There are some people that aren’t celebrities dye who their hair almost once a week and their hair will never look as good as Katy Perry’s. She inspires many people today because of her fun hair but the difference between our hair and her hair is that she pays someone thousands of dollars a year to make it look stunning and completely non-damaged. Whereas we can barely afford a cut and color every month or so. I would be willing to be that if Katy Perry showed her true hair, without extensions, without any hair dye in it, she would have very damaged and dull hair because of all the things she puts it through.

Katy Perry is one of the greatest artists of our time and we all envy her for her stunning performances and appearance. Although I do love her hair, the damage she’s done between dying and styling, I don’t envy her for. The use of a straightener is evident in her hair each time you see her and although it’s not necessarily a bad thing, it can be bad after so long. Katy better watch how she styles her hair-it could come back to haunt her.

November 12, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

So the inevitable has happened, you got out of the shower this morning ready to dry your hair and your blow dryer didn’t work. Left with a sopping wet head, you probably cursed yourself for not updating your blow dryer sooner. Not only have you left yourself with a problem, and a bad hair day, but you could have reaped the benefits of a high quality blow dryer all along. Well, don’t worry. Now is your chance to treat yourself to a high quality hair dryer and you can say goodbye to bad hair days forever.

 

The Farouk CHI PRO Hair Dryer is the latest addition to the Farouk CHI professional hair care line, and it is the same high quality hair tool product that you would expect from the Farouk CHI line. This hair dryer not only gives you the best features that you can expect to find in a quality hair dryer, but it also helps you protect the environment because you are choosing such an energy efficient tool.

 

The Farouk CHI dryer utilizes ceramic coils that provide a consistent heat temperature so you don’t have to worry about your hair heating up and burning with the uncontrolled coils of lower quality hair dryers. Ceramic coils also work to produce negative ions that are extremely beneficial to your hair. Negative ions go to work on your hair to lock in the moisture and dry it from the inside – out which means that your hair will dry in half the time reducing the chance for damage. Negative ions are also crucial for minimizing the frizzies and that annoying static electricity that can occur when you’re done blow drying your hair. Instead your hair will be shiny, smooth and beautifully healthy looking.

 

It’s important to have a comfortable tool when you are using your blow dryer every day. There is nothing worse that using a clunky, heavy blow dryer that hurts your arm. The Farouk CHI PRO dryer is lightweight and easy to handle. It has also been ergonomically designed which means that it will be extremely comfortable to use.

 

If you are in a hurry in the morning, and who isn’t? You don’t want to waste your time blow drying your hair. That is why the Farouk CHI PRO dryer uses moist heat and heats up quicker, drying your hair up to 40% faster than a regular hair dryer. How’s that for a time saver? And you don’t have to worry about wasting electricity because the low electric magnetic fields (EMF) means that you can dry your hair faster which saves energy so you don’t have to worry about the environment.

 

Other features like a cool shot button to lock in a style, two different speed settings, a CHI diffuser and a concentrator nozzle, just to name a few make the Farouk CHI PRO hair dryer one of the best hair dryers available today. So treat yourself and your hair and try out the new Farouk CHI PRO and you’ll never go back to an old hair dryer again.

Look Beautiful Anywhere in the World

Heading out for a holiday or a business trip can be exciting, overwhelming and sometimes just plain daunting. No matter where you are going, you will no doubt have a million things to think about. What to pack, flight arrangements to make, where you will be staying. Just to name a few. The last thing that you should have to think about is how you will be styling your hair while you are away from home.  No matter where you are in the world, you should be able to look fabulous right? So when it comes to packing, make sure you have room for your essential hair styling tools.

 

If you’re like me, you may have been tempted from time to time to leave your hair dryer at home because, “The hotel will have one.” And yes, the hotel will have one. But what type of hair dryer, do you really think the hotel will have? Is it going to be a top notch, high quality ionic hair dryer that will dry your hair in half the time without any damage? Not likely. If a hotel has to provide hundreds of hair dryers in each and every hotel room, you can bet they will be the cheapest ones that they can find.

 

You wouldn’t use the cheap hair dryer at home, because you know it will damage your hair. So why would you use it on holidays? Forget the hotel hair dryer and pack your own. If you are crunched for space, consider purchasing a quality travel hair dryer. Just because they’re small and compact, does not mean you have to sacrifice quality if you choose a good one.

 

When you’re packing your bags, be sure to leave enough room for your hair straightener and curling iron if those are regularly used styling tools. There is no reason that you should have to face the world with frizzy; un-styled hair just because you are in a different part of it. You probably wouldn’t leave your make up at home, so why leave your hair styling tools at home? Unless you plan on wearing a hat 24/7 while you’re away, you are going to want your hair to look good too.

 

When you travel with your hair tools, you should take extra precautions to keep them safe. If you are concerned about having to pack up quickly after using either a hair straightener or a curling iron, you should invest in a heat proof pouch that will allow you to put your tool away even when it’s hot and you won’t risk damaging any of your belongings. The pouch also helps to protect the tool from scratching or any other damage.

 

When you are packing in a suitcase that will be a checked bag on an airplane, try to put the hair tool in the middle of your bag between layers of clothes to keep it safe. Sadly, improperly packed tools will end up broken because of clumsy baggage handling.

 

It’s also important not to wrap your cords around the tool themselves. This can damage the cord and if the cord doesn’t work, your tool is useless. Instead, roll the cord up separately and fasten with a tie or elastic to keep it together.

 

Taking a little bit of extra effort to pack your hair styling tools will be well worth it in the end when you are on holidays and out for dinner looking smashing as always, while the women around you stare in envy wishing they had thought to pack their curling irons or hair straighteners too.

What you Need to Know Before you buy a Hair Dryer

July 31, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

There are a lot of hair dryers to chose from, so many that in fact it can be hard to chose which one is right for you. Prices range from a few dollars to the hundreds of dollars. How can a blow dryer be so expensive?
Well they can do different things, and are also made to last longer. Some are made for traveling as well. These are usually the ones where the handle will fold in to make it easier to pack with you. A Travel Hair Dryer is a good hair styling tool to have on hand.

Traditional blow dryers have approx. 1500 microns of EMF and some of the more expensive ones ie: ceramic, ionic, tourmaline) contains only 1.5 microns. EMF stands for electric magnetic field and the higher the micron the more damage to the environment. So obviously one who is concerned with the environment would make the wise choice of the lesser micron.

These “Ionic Ceramic Hair Dryers”  state that they are made with genuine tourmaline crystals. They are known to help create the same styles and as easy as a professional hairdresser and give even drying. Tourmaline is infused into the ceramic, which when used help to eliminate frizz and improve shine. These blow dryers can run into the hundreds but if they do what they state they do, what is a one time investment for great hair?  These kind of hairdryers most likely will come with some sort of warranty, therefore it should leave the buyer worry free!

There are ionic ceramic blow dryers that come with higher wattage, this is what usually tends to make the price higher. These will dry your hair in half the time, drying  hair from inside out while at the same time reducing  frizz and static electricity and producing shine. Also known to lock in color, repel humidity and seal the cuticle.

Some come with a cool shot button which when held down will blow cool air instead of hot. There are some that come with diffusers, these are good for root lifting and also for those with curly hair. It disperses heat evenly and lighter therefore producing less frizz in final stage.

The most common mistake I find is that people seem to think that they have to blow dry then use a curling iron. In most cases this is not true. For instance, to blow dry out long layers  I suggest getting a small bristled brush, the kind where the bristles heat up during the blow dry process, and use it like a curling iron. Brush the hair forward scooping up the hair and brushing out twisting the brush in a feathered type motion. Using this method instead of  curling your hair will not only save time but instead of blow-dry then curling will cause less damage in the long run. Using too many heating products on a day to day basis will wear out your hair and you will need a few more trips to the hairdresser than if you don’t.

When choosing one, be sure to get all the information you need, because like I said there are a ton to chose from!
