April 5, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

A flat iron is an extremely versatile hair tool as it can straighten, curl and flip hair as well as be used to add volume to your hair.

Follow these simple steps to Add Volume to Hair Using your Flat Iron;

1. Section hair so that you can work from the back bottom layers first and then work your way up to the top and front sections of your hair.

2. Taking a section of hair about 1-2 inches wide, clamp your flat iron right at the root of your hair.

3. With your flat iron, pull the section straight up as you glide the iron over the section of hair. Repeat over all of your hair.

4. Once you reach the top of your head, pull the section of hair with your flat iron into the opposite direction in which you want your hair to fall and then flip it back over.

5. Spray hair with a light mist of hairspray to help hold style.

Kim Kardashian 2010 Wall Calendar Hairstyle

January 25, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Kim Kardashian is known for her long, thick shiny dark hair and usually you see Kim wearing it straight and sleek or full of volume with loose waves. I however, love the beach waves Kim is seen with in her 2010 Calendar.

Kim Kardashian’s beach wave hairstyle is a popular summer hairstyle however I love that her beach waves don’t lack volume at the roots, and although the ends of her hair scream beach hair, the fullness at the top keep her from looking like a drowned rat.

To get Kim Kardashian’s beach wave hairstyle start by applying a volumizing foam such as Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam, to damp hair and blow dry hair with your head flipped over to help get maximum volume at the roots.

Once hair is completely dry, using a 1.5″ barreled curling iron, wrap the end of your hair around the barrel, hold for a few seconds and then release.

To get the ‘piecey’ look Kim Kardashian has that gives her that beach hair look, use a hair shaping balm, rub between fingertips and apply it to the end sections of your hair to help separate and add texture.
