Curling Your Hair With The Awesome KISS Instawave


Curling your hair couldn’t be easier with the revolutionary Kiss Instawave!!! A fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly and effortlessly creates beautiful and long-lasting curls with just the touch of a button!

Therefore it is super easy for anyone to use, from any angle and with any hand. All you need to do is grab a small portion of your hair, place it on the curling rod, and hit the Curl Dial.

It features 2 heat settings with a low/high switch and maximum temperature of 420 degrees.

I also love the fact that it automatically shuts off after 90 minutes, which makes it super safe, in case you forget and leave it on.

How To Use Kiss Instawave

I used it in high, but I didn’t want tight curls; I wanted my hair wavy showing some volume, so I only curled it for about 10 seconds, and I did achieve the look I wanted! All I did was press the Curl Dial to the right to roll my hair in, and left to roll it out!

I am very pleased with my new Kiss Instawave! I can effortlessly do my hair in only a few minutes and my curls last really long… Just exactly what I need!

 

KISS InstaWave is available in Target, Ulta & Amazon.com

Stylo of the Week63♥ *European Vogue* Hair, Makeup & Outfit Tutorial

 

For weeks I kept going to Express to look at a shirt that I wanted really bad. It was a Sheer Loose Button Down Shirt in Black & White. I kept waiting for it to go on sale but it never did. On the 25th I opened one of my Christmas gifts and what a surprise to find out I had gotten the same shirt as a Christmas present! (Law of Attraction 😉 ) So I immediately started brainstorming on what Stylo to create with that shirt. I spent the whole day on Wednesday looking for leggings in a Oxblood color. I finally found a pair of leopard patterned ones in this color at Zara’s. I paired them with black leather Audrey Brooke riding boots which are a little plain but perfect to balance out the whole outfit. I also added my pearled Peter Pan Collar Necklace and the rest of the accessories in silver. I was also looking for a Derby or Bowler Hat that I was not able to find, so I decided to wear my Black Pinstripe Fedora Hat that I wore for my Stylo of the Week2♥ This is a British high trend right now, therefore the name of the Stylo. I was in a mood to wear my Kat Von D oxblood lipstick so I decided to pair it with black eyeliner. Now I’m ready to go hang out in the City with my forever college friends 😉

Stylo of the Week47♥ *Nightfall Empress* Hair, Makeup & Outfit Tutorial

 

Nightfall Empress

If you read my recent article Another Trend for this Fall: The Collar Necklace, you already knew I was coming out with a Stylo incorporating this Trend. I picked the monochromatic choice I gave you and I created this awesome look, one of my favorites by the way. As I say in my Video Tutorial, this look resembles a lot of my personality and Dee Stylo (me), since I looove everything in it. To create a similar look, all you need to do is use dark colors. Lace is optional, since you could wear any short or long sleeves turtleneck top and still recreate a similar look. I’m also wearing lace socks which is a very feminine touch and a unique eyecatching trend that you may want to consider for this Fall/Winter 2012. I chose my accessories in an antique gold color, but you could definitely wear them in silver too. The Hairstyle and the Makeup is inspired in the Crimson Velvets Sephora Fall Look. Just in case you didn’t know, dark hues are back! So get yourself a dark purple or burgundy lipstick this Fall.

 

I am wearing Black Skinny Jeans from New York & Co; Lace Turtleneck from Victoria’s Secret in Black; The Lucie Leather Sandal from bebe in Black; Lace Anklet Socks from Jessica Simpson in Désert ($8.00).

 

Gold Peter Pan Collar Necklace from Mandee ($14.00); Gold Earrings from Mon Rêve Jewelry; Gold Bracelet from Mon Rêve Jewelry; Gold Flower Ring from Forever 21 ($3.99); Nail color from The Color Workshop in Burgundy.

 

I got inspired by the outstanding Crimson Velvets Sephora Fall Look 2012. I decided to create a wild Hairstyle with a lot of volume and soft curls complementing. I invested in a dark burgundy lipstick as dark hues make their imposing comeback this Fall/Winter 2012.

Stylo of the Week46♥ *Baroque Dramática* Hair, Makeup & Outfit Tutorial

 

Baroque Dramática

In last week’s article Trend Alert for this Fall 2012: Baroque Style I had mentioned that I was working on putting together a Stylo resembling this Trend. This week I bring you my *Baroque Dramática* inspired by this exuberant and melodramatic antique style. I must confess I’m inclined to always go for what is not common and simple. I like to add drama to my makeups and outfits, so somehow I identify myself with the Baroque style. I love the fabric, the patterns and the colors used to create this style. About two weeks ago, I went to Mandee and I got me this Outfit. I bought the leggings and the top for a very affordable price. Then I went home and I started looking for the accessories to complement this look. I was not a fan of loose tops until now. I am learning how to accommodate this type of tops into an outfit without looking chunky 🙂

As I say in my Video Tutorial, the key to attain a balance when creating this type of styles, it’s to always let ONE garment make the statement, meaning either the dress, the bottom, the top or the shoes, not all at the same time. So make sure to combine the baroque pattern with solid colors and moderate accessories.
