Getting Ready with Remington

***Special thanks to Remington for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

Whether it’s getting ready for a big event or just to look done up for the day, I can always rely on Remington’s T|Studio Thermaluxe Collection to achieve a flawless hair style all day long. The collection features advanced thermal technology for long lasting, healthy hair and 24/7 style perfection! To me, good hair sets a precedent for a good day — because when I feel confident, I can achieve anything.

Remington’s Advanced Thermal Technology collection was developed over the course of 27 months and many hours of consumer research to ensure superior performance. The advanced heating system in each tool allows for the heat to quickly and safely transform hair. This collection is readily available for purchase at your local Walmart or online at Amazon.com.

Naturally, my hair is straight but I definitely get bed head after waking up after a good night’s rest. Remington’s hair straightener allows me to quickly touch up my hair so that I don’t look like a lion just out of bed! The straightener takes only 15 seconds to heat up, and will give me flawlessly straight hair in under 5 minutes. Other straighteners I’ve used fluctuate in temperature, making it harder to achieve straight hair efficiently. Because Remington’s Thermaluxe straightener gives even heat distribution, I don’t have to straighten the same section of hair over and over to get even the stubborn parts of my hair straight. I love how smooth and shiny my hair looks afterwards!

Those of you who know me know that I love loose beach waves for an everyday hair style. On days I want some volume in my hair, I use Remington’s curling wand. This one took some practice to get used to because all the curling wands I had used before had a clip-on clasp allowing me to easily curl my hair mostly with one hand. This wand definitely requires more of an attention span at first (to avoid burning your skin/scalp from certain angles) and two hands. After I got a hang of it though, I found that it cuts down curling time by half. What normally takes close to 30 minutes to finish now takes me anywhere from 10-15 minutes depending on the look I’m trying to achieve. Also, the gradient heating system concentrates where you need lift most — at the root! Long gone are the flat-head days.

After some experimenting, I also learned that the wand is very versatile, despite its smaller barrel. I am able to make the curls tighter or looser depending on how much hair I curl at once, and how long I keep the hair wrapped around the wand. The first time around, my hair turned out a lot more voluminous than I had expected. While it’s not my everyday go-to look, I do love how these curls loosen out over the course of a few days. This works out nicely because I’m not keen on washing my hair so often… and it saves me a lot of styling time!

With other curling wands, my hair wouldn’t hold curl for very long without a ton of hair spray (a major con for having stubborn straight Asian hair). With Remington’s T|Studio wand, I surprisingly didn’t have to use any hair spray! My curls were a lot bouncier and my hair felt a lot healthier. For looser waves, I try not to keep the hair wrapped for too long and I curl in smaller sections so that it looks effortless & natural. Looser waves are ideal for the day, but will require more touch-up if I want them to last longer.

If you’re clumsy like me and sometimes worry about whether you’ve left your hot tools on and fear coming back to a house on fire, you’ll greatly appreciate the fact that these tools have a built-in automatic shut-off function. After 60 minutes, they will automatically turn off so you don’t have to worry if you’re out of the house for a few hours.

Both the hair straightener and curling wand are pretty lightweight so they’re ideal for travel. The straightener even has a lock function that allows you to keep it compact in your suitcase. I love that I can easily bring my Remington styling tools anywhere I go for the perfect look any time.

Have you tried any of Remington’s styling products? Which one is your favorite?

  1. Your hair is SO gorgeous! You rock both wavy and straight hair and these Remington products have definitely done you good 😉 Will have to check them out! My straightener just broke so I think I’ll be getting this one as a replacement.

  2. Your curls look gorgeous! I only really do my hair when I have an event but Remmington seems like a great hair care brand. I’ve never used their straightener or curler but will look into them 🙂

  3. Gorgeous hair!!! I can’t tell if I like you better with curled or straight since both look amazing. How long did it take for you to adjust to the curler? I use one with a clamp too and am wondering if it’s time to switch.

  4. Wow, love both hair tools. The straightener gets your hair so straight and I love that it heats up in a short 15 seconds! That is key for someone like me who is always rushing out the door. The curling wand gives such amazing curls. I need this for myself and for my daughters (one of which has super stick straight hair). I love that Remington tools are also so affordable. I need to look into these products! xoxo, Christine

  6. Your hair looks awesome–especially in these lovely photos! I don’t think any of my styling tools are Remington. Might have to check them out!

  7. I’m not really into hair straightener because they say it dry your hair but with this I wanted to try it! hehe I love your hair, especially when it’s curly. Pretty as always!

    Hope you could also drop to my blog too. 🙂

  8. I’ve never tried Remington’s heat styling products before but you’ve definitely convinced me to give them a go. Your hair looks fab both straight and wavy. I really want to try that conical curling iron. Up to now, I’ve only ever used a straight barrel one.

  9. First off, you’re very nice at getting your hair so good. The Remington looks very professional, I like how this wwarming up so fast and it has been tested for more than 2 years before selling it. Unfortunately I have short and straight hair but it is practical to have it. Enjoy

  10. Ok, you actually didn’t see this coming, but yes, I’m a proud owner of a Remington hair straightener, BUT I have to admit I haven’t used it for ages as I always tell myself I don’t have time and then I just put a cap on my head. One day soon when I’m feeling like I wanna be a bit more handsome than usual I’ll actually take it out for a spin although I won’t get those pretty curls you’ve got, haha.
    Love, Thomas xx
