Hi ladies! I don’t know about you, but I’m always drooling and trying to achieve my favorite celebrity hairstyles. Since I was born with super curly, thick hair that I struggled to manage most of my life, the one thing that continually sticks out to me is beautiful, healthy tresses.
True story, when i was 13 I finally figured out how to get my hair smooth with my moms iron and ironing board! Needless too say it didn’t go well and I have a few burns to remember it! Ha! Anyone else?!
Anyway, I’m always keeping my eyes out for tools that make styling my hair easier. So when Dermstore reached out to me about testing the latest Harry Josh Pro Tools line, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity! And how perfect was the timing since I just cut my hair and totally had to relearn how to style it!
If you don’t know by now, Harry Josh is a big deal when it comes to all things hair. Without knowing it, you’ve probably seen his work in the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, GQ and Allure. His hair career is jam-packed with talent, working on the heads of Olivia Wilde, Kate Bosworth, Karlie Kloss, and Gisele - just to name a few! If this isn’t convincing enough, read on to see how his line of hair care tools will change your life.
I strongly believe that if there is only one haircare tool a girl should invest in, it should be a hair dryer. Let’s face it, a good blow out does miracles and breathes so much life into your locks. Plus, if it’s truly a good blow out, the style will last for days or until you wash it again! Or if you’re me, almost a week! The Harry Josh Pro Dryer allows you to achieve just that. The dual ion functionality provides sleek volume, as well as healthy shine no matter how damaged your hair is from coloring and heat styling.
The first time I switched my Pro Dryer on, I was shocked at how powerful this sucker was! It blows air at 80+ mph, which means you can not only style with perfection but it also saves you a lot of time - even with thick, unruly hair like mine! As soon as I replaced my old hair dryer with the Harry Josh Pro Dryer, I was sold! PS it blow dried my hair so fast I literally had to wet my hair again 3 times to get these photos! ;) And that is saying a lot considering I have super thick hair! It’s also got this cool cold air button that does an awesome job of setting your hair with a cold shot. This is important because it makes my hair so much more manageable with a curling or flat iron.
Ok so by popular demand here is a step by step tutorial on how I style my hair to achieve volume, texture and that effortless kinda messy style you ladies ask about ALL the time! Hope this helps and let me know any questions you have! XO
Step By Step How To For Textured Volume!
For how I like to style my hair, my goal is volume and texture so I blow dry my hair away from my scalp for maximum umff! I could also use a round brush and smooth it out for a much more polished vibe buy you know me I like a little rock and roll in my looks so texture all the way!
Pro Tip: Blow Dry away from the scalp and use mainly your hands to dry to achieve the most volume!
Ok, don’t judge, this is my hair in it’s natural crazy frizzyness glory! But I wanted to share with you so that you don’t get frustrated as you style and just follow through because the finished result will give you killer texture!
Next I section my hair into 3 sections with these clips and work from the bottom up and take really small, maybe 1/2 in sections and curl with the 2 in 1 Marcel Curling Iron starting mid-shaft and aiming my curling iron DOWN! I’m obsessed with this iron and it couldn’t have come at a better time as my old one was too big for my new shorter hair. This 1.25 size is perfect for my length and any type of bob/lob length.
Pro Tip: The smaller the sections you curl the more texture you’ll achieve!
Then I alternate directions and curl with iron facing up, hold on to my ends and kind of do a pull through to smooth at the ends to make the ends straight and give that lived in look. Does that make sense? I will be sharing a video on stories to make it easier and save to my hair Highlights! ;) I got you ladies!
Lastly I let my hair set for a few minutes to cool and then shake the curls loose before I spray it with texture spray!
Now here is the next game changing feature from this Marcel Curling Iron, it converts from a marcel iron; that I totally love because once you get the hang of it, t’s super easy to use; to a curling wand that is perfect for those loose beach waves. I only wash my hair every 4-5 days so I’ve been using the wand option for the following days to touch up a few loose pieces here and there.
Overall, my new Harry Josh Pro Tools have been a game changers in my daily hair routine and I am really impressed! If you’re interested in emulating the perfect celebrity hair, definitely check out the Harry Josh Pro Dryer at Dermstore. I promise, you’ll be blown away by this amazing hair dryer and curling wand AND guess what?!
