When it comes to my hair, I've tried tools up and down the spectrum. I have thick, wavy curls that somewhat do whatever they want unless I find a high enough quality product that can tame it.
Speaking of which, I have to admit that I used to think that haircare items were directly related to their price; the higher the cost the better it must be, right? Isn't that how a lot of things work? But then I discovered something: that's not always the case. I won a $200 fancy schmancy curling iron a while back and can barely stand using it, instead preferring a simple one that I purchased years and years ago.
So, when that one fell apart (literally) a little while back, I knew that the price tag wasn't what was going to point me in the right direction towards a replacement that I would love. Instead, what mattered was choosing a product from a brand known for only the highest quality with a proven track record of success. Too much to ask? Not when Remington is in the picture.
Known as "How the World Gets Ready," Remington is a global leader and innovator of affordable hair care, electric shavers and body groomers. Whether you're looking for hair dryers, flat irons/straighteners, curling irons, epilators, mustache and beard trimmers or much more, they have an item for just about any man or woman at a variety of affordable prices.
And, most recently, Remington stylists have been helping the stars rock the red carpet with stunning hairstyles that those of us watching at home can do as well. Did you catch the hilarious and gorgeous Tina Fey at the Golden Globe or SAG Awards? She looked amazing thanks to her stylist's talents and his use of Remington products to give her such a classic and chic look!
So, when Remington stepped up in my time of need and sent over their ¾" Curling Iron, I had no doubt that it could help transform my thick mess into something beautiful as well (now if they would just send a stylist over to do it for me, that would be even better)!
Perfect for creating long-lasting curls, the Remington Style ¾" Curling Iron is everything that I want in a curling iron at, get this, a price point of $9.99. Opening the package, I immediately liked the two heat setting options (with a power indicator light) and the tip that stays cool so that there is never any worry about safety.
Having a tangle-free swivel cord makes a huge difference as well, as I can remember past curling irons without the swivel feature and having the cord wrap around and around was just never convenient while I was trying to fix my hair.
When it comes to using this curling iron, it performs great! It can heat all the way up to 375° in a short amount of time and the slim, comfortable design of the handle makes it easy to hold as well as store or pack for travel. I've even given the brush sleeve a try a time or two (something that I've seen before but never used) and it's been an excellent way to create smooth, soft curls. How handy!
If you're looking for a beauty product for a man or woman, Remington has them all. And not only will you find affordable prices and great ideas on their website, their recently revamped Remington Red Chair Ready Facebook page contains inside style tricks, tips and great sweepstakes and contests for everyone - right now two random winners will receive a VIP trip for two to NYC to see Lady Gaga perform at Madison Square Garden!
