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 Finished Look!
When Kára McCullough won the Miss USA crown last night, she was put in the spotlight for some problematic comments on healthcare and feminism. While speaking during the pageant’s Q&A section, Kára asserted her beliefs that health care was a privilege (as opposed to a right) and attempted to distance herself from the word “feminism.read more
Instead opting to wear her hair in silky smooth locks like many women, Kára decided to wear her natural for the beauty pageant. The look, which was styled by CHI Haircare’s Albert Luiz, certainly caught some attention the night of and before the big show.read more

Readers’ Choice Winner: CHI Original 1″ Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
Why: This makes my hair so silky and smooth, and it stops frizz. It heats up quickly and cuts my straightening time by 75 percent. It’s an excellent investment.
Farouk Systems rolled out CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Line, a hair care line and relaxer system, which is enriched with both olive oil and monoi oil for “ultimate hair rejuvenation,” said the company. The restorative line includes everything from a masque to a sheen spray. Each product is enriched with olive oil, monoi oil, shea butter and silk that collectively work together to revitalize chemically treated tresses and prevent damage from daily styling.

CHI Ultra CHI Titanium Straightening Iron – 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.
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.read more
To realize a beautiful hairstyle that is free of stray hairs, curls, and waves, there are no better units than professional flat irons. These styling tools smooth over the face of your hair to form a stick-straight style and are helpful for forming beach-inspired waves.

CHI flat irons are thoughtfully designed to fulfill the needs of both the professional user and everyday home user. Their products come in a variety of sizes and colors to ensure that you find an efficient and stylish choice that is just perfect for you. They ensure that you get top quality hair products that make your hair to look great.read more

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.read more
