Curling your hair with flat Iron

Hey guys,

How was your Christmas? I hope you had a good time and received a lot of lovely pressies. I bet you all looked fabulous and will look even more this NYE.  Recently I have been pretty obsessed with having lovely big curls,  they take me back in time and I feel like I’m living in the 50’s.  I found an easy way to curl your hair by using a normal flat iron on youtube and I want to show you how to do it yourselves.



 Curling your hair with a flat iron

Step 1: Wash your hair and slightly dry most of it

1Step 2: Before drying your hair completely, apply some heat protection cream on the tip of your hair, were it basically needs the most.  I used the Tresemme,  Thermal Sensations blow dry potions.


Step 3: Dry completely your hair, and straighten it a little bit. It doesn’t have to be perfect, you will be curling it right after so don’t spend to much time on it.


Step 4: Grab a 1 inch piece of hair and start curling it by twisting the iron inwards and pulling it downwards slowly. I do suggest you watch the video for further help. The first time I tried this technique they curls didn’t stay on for long because I didn’t give it enough heat. So make sure you pull the iron downwards slowly, but not too slow that you end up having your hair straightened rather than curled.


Step 5: Basically do the same technique for the rest of your hair, and then retouch where you think is needed. Then I like to slightly brush the curls so they look more natural and with more volume.


There are many other ways to curl your air, from the traditional rollers, to the most conventional technology curling iron.  Always make sure to use heat protection before curling your hair if your using a a straightener or curling iron.

I hope you enjoyed my short tutorial, if you need further help feel free to comment down below, a few days left to enter my Giveaway 😀




Event : Phillip Kingsley London Launch in Malta

This week I was invited to this Exclusive Launch of the Phillip Kingley London hair care products. Being that they haven’t been selling in Malta before now, I didn’t know much about this brand, but I did hear about it on various Magazines and beauty blogs. It is widely known in the UK and in America, not only by hairdressers but even by celebrities like Kate Winslet, John Travolta, Lucy Liu and and much more.


We had a quick presentation of the products for which we were explained the study being these products and what are the products for. It was really interesting to see how much study there is behind each product. Their particular aim is not only to have healthy hair but also to have a healthy scalp. Even-though the products are more targeted to hairstylist to use in their Salon but I think they can be great for anyone at home that want to pamper their hair with some quality product.


Their products have won great awards by well know magazines like , Harper’s Bazaaar, GQ, and In style magazine for being the best hair treatments out there. I have to admit their Elastisizer has truly caught my eye, as it is highly reviewed.

After the presentation, she demonstrated how the products should be applied and even how to massage the clients during the treatment.  FWI All of us beauty bloggers were really jealous of the model, as we definitely wanted a massage ourselves :D. Then we were given some nice sample of the Phillip Kingley’s shampoo and conditioner, which I might add, they smell lovely.


Then we ended the event with some nibbles and a drink with my other fellow bloggers. I truly enjoyed the event and it is truly nice to see new brands make it to our lovely small Island.

P.S At moment the Phillip Kingley products aren’t available in Malta yet as they are waiting on stock, however once they arrive you will be the first to know 🙂 Keep posted as I have some great events coming up and Halloween make up looks.
