I remember being hair obsessed since a very young age. My daughter (now 20, which I cannot believe!) was definitely obsessed with creating, fun but VERY EASY hairstyles since she was probably three, and this summer has been all about finding fun and easy hairstyles for my nine year old niece Elizabeth. Being an active new fourth grader and having to get out the door fast in the morning but still wanting to express herself with her hair, Elizabeth turned to me for some help. She was tired of wearing her hair down, headbands and pony tails - she wanted to learn how to braid her hair. Braids are a huge trend, as we all know. Elizabeth and I both agreed that smaller braids used as accent pieces were the perfect way for her to express herself. The problem was that her little fingers had a hard time actually creating the braids herself. This is when I was lucky enough to get to test the brand new Conair Quick Twist and I knew this was the solution.
I am always on the hunt for the easiest way to do my hair. As my hair is finally growing out from a bad haircut and is longer, I am able to play and curl it more like I used to. I have been looking for larger barrel irons and have been obsessed with the CHI ARC Automatic Rotating Curler lately. This curling iron gives my hair the perfect curls I crave in a flash!
