those of you who really know me, know that i hate doing my hair. i'll leave the house with a full face of makeup and my hair, unbrushed, in a wet knot on top of my head.
rewind to a few weeks ago, i was getting ready for my best friend's bachelorette party with a friend who was helping me style my hair while i helped her to apply her makeup. she told me that getting a "hair styler" changed her life - or at least the frequency and quality of hairstyling in her life.
as fate would have it, not long after i attended an event for amika styling tools and got my hands on a styler of my own. stylers, or amika stylers anyway, are made of 100% ceramic plates that can used to straighten, create waves, flips or volume - it's like a flat iron on steroids.
however, as a true lover of wavy, voluminous hair i fell in love with the amika curler. unlike the traditional curling iron, this curler is a clip-free tourmaline barrel that heats up very quickly so you can work through a head of hair in about 10 minutes (believe me, i time these things because i'm very impatient with them). i've used it multiple times this week - a huge change for a girl who hated spending any time on her hair.
the stylers and curlers come in updated patterns to celebrate the trends of that season. pick one to match your taste and styling needs at loveamika.com, price range $110-400.
