The Best Flat Irons, According to Celebrity Hairstylists

CHI Professional 1″ Ceramic Flat Iron. “I’ll use this to create that undone look that’s super trendy right now. After curling hair and letting it cool, I run this over the ends for a straighter effect and then tap the iron over any areas that are veering towards Shirley Temple-ish. The tapping helps to flatten and smooth without completely crushing the curl, and instead leaves a nice wave pattern behind.” —Laurie Heaps, celebrity hairstylist

How-To: Textured Faux Bob

How-To: Textured Faux Bob

The faux bob is a great style when your client wants to rock shorter locks without the long-term commitment of chopping it all off. Master this look with the help of Farouk Systems, Inc. Global Artist Anna Cantu. We broadcasted her LIVE on Facebook creating this textured illusion bob during Miss USA 2017 in Las Vegas. Check it out!

But first, some of Anna’s top tips when creating this style:

If she has fine hair, create volume and texture by going in close to the scalp with the CHI Onyx 1-inch Ceramic Crimping Iron and pressing the iron down just once.
At the parietal ridge, create a section from ear to ear and braid it out of the way so it hides under the rest of the hair. This creates the illusion of shorter length and doubles as your foundation if you need to pin later.
Hairspray vs. CHI Spray Wax: If you’re going for a smooth, polished look Anna recommends finishing the look with hairspray. If you are aiming for a more textured final look, Anna suggest spraying some Spray Wax to keep the hair in place.
Watch the full how-to below!

The infused Olive & Monoi oils within this product have been known to rejuvenate, stimulate and hydrate the hair cuticle from root to end. For intense penetration, use low heat.

CHI Ellipse to achieve Malia Obama’s hair

I like the CHI Ellipse ¾” — 1 ¼” Teflon Tapered Styling Wand to get this look. Make a curling iron or curling wand and start wrapping pieces of hair. Start at the mid-shaft of the hair. Curl in alternating directions for a natural look, but be sure to curl the pieces closest to your face AWAY from the face. Wait until the curl has cooled before brushing or raking your fingers through. Malia doesn’t look like she brushed out her curls — that creates more of an old Hollywood, retro wave style.

Finish off with a hairspray to protect your hair from the wind and humidity, especially if you are in New York City! I like the Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray.

WHY I LOVE THIS CHI AIR FLAT IRON

When you have frizzy or thick hair, flat irons are a necessity, not a luxury. There’s a lot I expect out of my flat iron – it needs to provide shine, flatten the frizz, straighten with ease and heat up quickly.
Believe it or not, I had never been able to find a flat iron that does all of those things. I’d use one that would provide a great shine, but I’d have to work over the same strands just to get it to 100% combat frizz, which resulted in so much damage to my hair. And none ever heated up fast. Having to straighten my hair became a chore and not one that could be done quickly. Then last year I came across the CHI Air Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Wand, which heats up in 60 seconds. Essentially – something you plug in before you put on your mascara and it’s heated up to temperature by the time you’ve applied your second coat. It also gives my hair an amazing shine.
I then wondered if CHI had a similar flat iron… and oh yes they do, but the best part? The CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic flat iron heats up in 30 seconds!

This flat iron: distributes heat evenly, eliminates frizz, adds shine, has automatic shut-off (after one hour), has 410 degrees max, temperature, has curved floating plates (eliminates snagging on your hair!), heats up in 30 seconds

The size of the plates are 1″, which makes it manageable when creating waves versus straightening. While I have thin hair, I have a lot of it giving it the appearance of being thick. It gets tricky to straighten, but most of my hair only needed me to go over a section once. The very front is where I would go over it twice in order to get the slight curve I like.

14 Oil-Based Shampoos That Will Make Hair Soft, Not Greasy

CHI
Tea tree oil isn’t just for clearing up pimples. Its antiseptic and calming properties make it a brilliant option for sorting out any scalp problems. Combined with peppermint oil, silk and chamomile, the invigorating formula soothes, removes buildup, and balances your scalp’s natural oil levels.
Tea Tree Oil Shampoo, $16 at Ulta
Just when we’ve managed to wrap our heads around the fact that certain oils really are good for our skin, we are confronted with a new crop of oil-based shampoos hitting the market. If you’re prone to greasy roots and hate the thought of unwashed hair, just the mere suggestion of combining “oil” with “shampoo” sounds a bit like an oxymoron.
Surprisingly, oil-based shampoos don’t leave your hair looking, well, oily. The best oil-based shampoos are designed to clean hair, nourish the scalp and wash out with no greasy residue. Traditional cleansers and shampoos can strip the skin and scalp of natural oil, which in turn makes them produce more oil. By using an oil-based shampoo or facial cleanser, oil, dirt and impurities are rinsed away without disturbing skin’s oil balance.
Oil-based shampoos work for all types of hair but are especially beneficial for medium, coarse, chemically dependent, curly or wavy, and super-parched hair. Read on for 14 oil-based shampoo formulas that will moisturize without weighing hair down.

Best CHI Flat Iron 2017- Top Picks and Reviews

CHI flat iron reviews have shown this.

It is used all over the world, and in many different settings. You might find a CHI hair drier in someone’s bathroom, or you might find a CHI flat iron at a high class salon.

There really is no end to the ways that this company can help you tend to and style your hair. They produce beautiful, hard-working pieces that most women simply can’t afford to be without.

Even better, they offer options for women with all different types of hair, as well as those with a great deal or little experience using the tool itself.

With CHI products, they really focus on one thing, and one thing only: The best way to satisfy the customers, and the best ways to produce long-lasting, beautifully-styled hair in very little time, and with very little experience needed.
That’s one of the reasons CHI is such a beloved brand when it comes to hair care products.

And the CHI flat iron reviews have shown that it is working very well: Many women would recommend a CHI flat iron to their friends and family.

What could be a better endorsement than that?

Best CHI Flat Iron Reviews 2017
1. CHI Original Pro 1” – Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline

Basic But Powerful

CHI Original Pro 1” Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat IronFor those looking for a great deal on an otherwise expensive brand, the CHI Original Pro 1” Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener is certainly the hair straightener for you. It is amazing, working wonders on all types of hair. Its high heat content, combined with the tourmaline ceramic that it uses, makes it a great choice in flat iron for both salon and at-home use.

Of course, most who are buying this product will be wanting it for home-use. And that’s perfect! The tourmaline ceramic that makes up the heating plates me emits a lot of negative ions, resulting in hair that is less frizzy, straighter, and more manageable. The high heat content, too, will boost the style’s hold, making it a great option to last all day.

The reviews for the CHI Original Pro are fairly solid: It seems to be a good flat iron that many people enjoy. The only negatives found were about the high heat content (which can be bad for certain hair types) and that it is a bit thin.

Beyond that, this is a great product!

Here’s how you can recreate Belle’s two hairstyles from Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” movie

Even though I dream of becoming a real-life princess who lives in a castle, I know it will probably never happen, especially because Prince Harry is currently taken. However, if I can’t be an official princess, then I can damn well make myself look and feel like one. That’s why when Disney announced the live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, I knew I had to transform myself into Belle. I mean, we do both have brown hair and a passion for reading.

I love how Emma Watson’s hair in the film mimics Belle’s in the animated movie, and that they left that messiness to it. Remember how Belle had that one strand that always fell out of place?

Ultra CHI Flat Iron – The Best Flat Iron – Manage Your Mane Without Frying It

The key to the perfect coif: Find an iron that straightens your type of hair at the lowest possible heat setting with the fewest passes. Sounds complicated? What it really comes down to is plate material — ceramic and titanium are best. Ceramic plates deliver a very gentle, far-infrared heat that locks moisture into your hair while emitting negative ions. Those little ions close the hair’s cuticles, working to smooth strands and cut frizz. Titanium plates are a favorite of professional stylists and it’s not hard to understand why — they’re super smooth, heat up fast, and are lightweight.

For coarse or textured hair, the Chi Ultra CHI Titanium Straightening Iron won’t lead you astray. (Titanium plates are too harsh to use on thin or damaged hair.) The $120 iron performed similarly to the Bio Ionic 10X, just not as astonishingly well. It may take a few tries to get the hang of it to avoid any unwanted crimps.

There are a lot of flat irons on the market each promising to do the same thing. We started our search by compiling 132 flat irons from popular beauty websites like Sephora and Ulta, the hair-focused online retailer Folica, and the omnipresent Amazon.com. Then we dug into the details.

We only looked at 1-inch flat irons with heat settings below 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

When you apply heat to your hair, which is not a living thing, you’re essentially cooking it. And, just like food, it’s easy to overdo it. Short of actually searing your hair, you still run the risk of drying out each strand, which can lead to breakage and split ends over time.

From Hair to Wear: Introducing CHI® Steam

Meet the latest innovation from CHI® – a line of high-performance irons and steamers that bring the power of the pros to your home, just like our hair care tools.
The line launches this spring with two powerful irons: the Professional Clothing Iron and Electronic Clothing Iron. Both irons feature the same titanium-infused ceramic soleplate as our popular G2 flat iron. This soleplate heats up quickly and provides an extra-smooth glide, so you can easily iron everything from a silky LBD to your favorite fall flannel.

Good news – there’s no previous ironing experience required with the Professional Clothing Iron. With a temperature dial that includes a fabric guide, adjustable steam control and a comfortable handle, ironing is easier than ever. Your co-workers may think your wardrobe is professionally pressed, but little do they know it only took you a few minutes to get that polished ready-to-wear look.

How to Master Every Single Hair Tool You Have

Tip No. 1: Use Protection

Frequent use of your heat tools causes damage such as dryness and breakage. But, if you prep your hair before you straighten, your strands will be better protected from the direct heat. If you don’t like using product, don’t fret: a protectant serum won’t kill your style’s vibe. “Just use a few drops of serum—it won’t change the final outcome of your hair,” LaFond says.

Tip No. 2: Use Your Discretion

If there’s no need to flat iron all of your hair, then don’t! “Focus on the areas that need it,” LaFond says. “Say you’re growing out a keratin treatment. If that’s the case, just flat iron the roots and slightly touch up the ends.”

Tip No. 3: Comb Through, Girl

Integrate a comb into your straightening routine to get out any bumps or knots that could get in the way. “Take a section of your hair and put the comb into it,” LaFond says. “Place the flat iron above the comb and work your way down. The comb is going to help keep your hair nice and flat so you only have to pass the iron once over the section.” This process will reduce heat damage and will cut down on time!

I Got a SUPER Long Hair Wig Inspired by Kim Kardashian–Here’s What Happened by Deepica Mutyala

You read that right, I got a long hair WIG inspired by Kim Kardashian and the infamous Cher and their super duper long hair that’s trending RN. My whole life, I was the girl who rocked super long hair. Then, I had an epiphany about a year ago and decided to do something drastic and chopped my long hair off into a bob. Don’t get me wrong, the short hair was fun. Liberating really–but I’ve had an itch to grow it and right now I’m in that awkward hair stage where it’s neither short nor long. You know what I’m talking about.

Samantha Jane – CHI Rose Hip Oil Review

Farouk Systems Inc recently released the Rose Hip Oil Colour Nurture line from CHI. It’s been formulated to nourish colour maintenance with rose hip oil, antioxidants and low PH levels. I have 5 of 6 items in the line, I skipped on the dry shampoo as I have dry, curly hair. My hair has no issues with volume or greasiness.

Rose is all the rage lately, and I have been loving it! I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or rose scents are less … old lady floral? That being said, none of these products have a true rose scent, so wether you like it or not it really doesn’t come through prominently. It has a very fresh scent, quite light. Some of the beneficial ingredients included in this line are rose hip oil (obviously), silk, vitamin c/antioxidants and UV protector.

Rose hip oil: This oil is easily absorbed and contains essential fatty acids and antioxidants to protect your hair colour.
Silk: Helps to strengthen and protects hair cuticles
Vitamin C/Antioxidants: Rejuvenates hair and creates shine
UV Protector: Protects hair against UV rays that can alter and damage hair colour
