10 Minute Mop Miracle

20140623-083627-30987057.jpg
This is my Good Morning Hair, last night I went to bed with my hair wet.
I applied a heavy Layer of Living Proof No Frizz Weight a Less Styling spray then squeezed the excess water out with at towel and went to bed. 20140623-083913-31153309.jpg
Using just this one Product I will not only create beautiful touchable waves, but also an ever lasting style even in humidity and rain.

20140623-084116-31276637.jpg
Did I mention I’m in a Hyatt , this is not my horrible lighting choice. I’m spritzing the product all over my hair before I section it.

20140623-084227-31347641.jpg
Using my Favorite Scrunchi I section my hair in medium sized sections to create more realistic waves.

20140623-084515-31515225.jpg
I’m using a picture from a previous blogs , ( when my Husband was around to take the pic)
Notice how I hold the iron down and wrap the hair from roots to ends around the wand.

20140623-084724-31644584.jpg
Spritzing more of the product on each section before I apply heat. It will not only shield my hair from the heat but it will block the humidity to maintain the style all weightlessly … It’s in the name.

20140623-084905-31745146.jpg
One last mist and a light scrunch will fuze the sections together into a moldable , movable style.

20140623-085051-31851009.jpg
And your selfie ready!

How to Grow hair before work!

Step 1: buy some hair ( Real Human Hair ) 20140603-163735-59855212.jpg
I like the 18″ clip in from Sally’s they are 130$, cheaper than real ones and half the time!

20140603-163858-59938934.jpg
Step 2. Lay out the hair so you can see what you are dealing with.

20140603-164109-60069207.jpg
Step 3. make sure your hair is dry and styled the way you want to wear it. ( wavy or straight)

20140603-164224-60144399.jpg
Step 4. Section your hair about an inch and a quarter above the nape of your neck ( more if your hair is fine )

20140603-164413-60253802.jpg
Step 5. Tease and spray the roots of this section. This creates a base and something for the clip to hold on to.

20140603-164517-60317009.jpg
Be sure and have all of the clips popped open for easy installation!

20140605-222339-80619498.jpg
Step 6. Press the clip against your scalp , once it feels secure pop it closed. ( fashion dynasty note: if the clip isn’t sticking tease more and add more hair spray)

20140605-222640-80800916.jpg
Step 7. Spray your hair and extension with a workable heat protection spray.
(FD note: be sure that you have Real Human Hair

20140605-222925-80965463.jpg
Step 8. Take a small workable section of your hair and the extension, comb the section together and either curl or straighten.

20140605-223207-81127862.jpg
Pull down your next section and repeat steps 5-8

20140605-223357-81237906.jpg

20140605-223358-81238549.jpg

20140605-223545-81345286.jpg
Use a light Silicone Shine product, I’m using Evo Love Perpetua Shine Drops

20140605-223853-81533602.jpg
Run your fingers through your finished long hair! ( carefully you don’t wanna pull them out! )

20140605-224030-81630836.jpg
Look at that hair grow!

Instagram the rabbit hole

Kyle is watching Indian Jones ! I am on Instagram finding this! 20140530-220011-79211869.jpg20140530-220012-79212031.jpg
How cool is Tattly. My husband says people without tattoos always say ” they can’t commit!”

20140530-220130-79290471.jpg
Well, it’s true I can’t pick one outfit a day I have to pick three!

20140530-220241-79361395.jpg
So now I can pick 3 well designed Temporary Tattoos a day, and the ironic joke tattoos won’t be party conversation pieces in 5 years!

Blow down not up

Most women wish for a man in their bathroom every morning.. A man named Chris McMillan (Jen Aniston’s stylist).
20140520-104817-38897400.jpg
Well, not everyone has one of those so here is my How To Style your naturally wavy hair in 20 min and look like it took Hours!

20140520-104935-38975901.jpg
First the Tools :
Professional Blowdryer
Round Brush
Vent Brush
Product

20140520-105252-39172219.jpg
This is my hair ,out of the shower.

20140520-114419-42259094.jpg
Apply a product that will moisturize your hair and protect it from the heat. I’m using Living Proof PHD, it is a 5 in 1 that adds shine, moisture, volume, and frizz elimination! Dime or quarter size depending on your hair thickness and length.

20140520-114755-42475745.jpg
Put the product on your hands like your putting lotion on them, fronts and backs of your hands, then apply roots to ends until your hands are clean.

20140520-114949-42589072.jpg
Comb the product through out with your vent brush.

20140520-115019-42619323.jpg
I’m using a Babyliss Pro ItaliaBrava
It is 2000 watts of hairstyling awesomeness with adjustable heat settings and a turbo button! I use high heat and high power for my thick hair, lower your heat for finer hair.

20140520-115607-42967434.jpg
Start with the vent brush blowing the hair around your face straight back. Follow the brush with the dryer to smooth your your hair line.

20140520-115824-43104902.jpg
Section an inch of hair around your hair line, in front of your ears.

20140520-120011-43211551.jpg
Push your round brush down to gather the inch section and roll back toward your face.

20140520-120111-43271074.jpg
Blow the section away from your face, notice my section is the same width as my brush. Keeping your sections clean and small will allow you maintain control.

20140520-120230-43350263.jpg
Pull the brush through the lower portion of the section , still blowing away from the face.

20140520-123929-45569062.jpg
Twist the brush lightly while moving down the section, the nozzle of the dryer should follow the section until you corkscrew the brush out of your hair!

20140520-124100-45660422.jpg
I have bangs/ fringe that I am growing out; so to incorporate them I set the dryer on turbo and blast with hot heat holding it in my hands, then cool shot to set.

20140520-124217-45737550.jpg
Repeat on the other side .

20140520-124339-45819055.jpg
Next section is the underneath section.

20140520-124427-45867437.jpg
Split the sections in two. The front and the underneath are what frames your face, this is why I start with the most important section.

20140520-124548-45948840.jpg
Notice the section is the same width as my brush. Brush the hair into your round brush same manor as the front, just backwards.

20140520-124933-46173392.jpg
Slowly cork screwing the section till the ends drop out following the brush with the nozzle.

20140520-125026-46226062.jpg
Now that the underneath and front are styled, drop the rest of your hair down, and spray with a little more product. living proof flex spray will protect your hair from the heat and add a slight bit more hold.

20140520-125328-46408928.jpg
Grab your crown section to smooth the top hairs .

20140520-125411-46451909.jpg
Smooth both sides of the crown.

20140520-125448-46488412.jpg
Always finishing a section the way it will lay, so blow dry the cuticle smooth, and down away from the face.

20140520-125539-46539105.jpg
Cork screw this section slowly to finish the ends.

20140520-125622-46582392.jpg
Incorporate all of the sections together with the round brush.

20140520-130301-46981169.jpg
Marrying the top and bottom section will push the curls in a similar direction, because the middle section of hair is only 50 percent dry it will leave humidity in the hair, so your hair will get bigger as it drys.

20140520-130450-47090578.jpg
Notice there is hair that isn’t smooth, this is a 20 min fix so don’t expect JLo @ the Grammys when you are done.

20140520-130548-47148545.jpg
Smooth some of the sections together at the ends to avoid frizzy ends.

20140520-130640-47200385.jpg
Because you have wavy, or curly hair you can brush these sections together with your vent brush fusing the hair together. ( no recommended for straight hair)

20140520-130800-47280019.jpg Brush these sections together flipping the ends up and smoothing them with your hands.

20140520-130847-47327970.jpg
Apply a pea size of a moisturizer, or shine drop… See PHD does it all!

20140520-130935-47375795.jpg

20140520-130935-47375407.jpg
Smooth it through your hair, away from your face in a twisting motion.

20140520-131025-47425172.jpg
Make a duck face and take selfie!

20140520-131439-47679306.jpg
Cuz your done baby!

Fashion Dynasty Note:
Why a professional dryer? This dyer will get hotter and work more efficiently than a cheap dryer, because it is powered by Ferrari it will far out last the toy Motor in your 20$ dryer. Be sure and get at least a wattage of 1875! Babyliss, Rusk , Conair are my go to dryers, irons and tools!
