Natural Beachy Olsen Waves! Remington Air Wave Review10:01 PM
Hello everyone! Today I have a hair tutorial to share with you. To give a little background on my hair, when I was younger (before puberty) I had crazy long, stick-straight hair. I'm talking butt-length pigtails hanging down from the sides of my head at age 9. It was incredibly stubborn to curl and I did manage to do that a couple times with hairspray-crunchy locks which looked like giant black sausages. SEXY! Okay, maybe that's a little inappropriate as 9-year olds should not be sexy, nor attempt to be sexy but I do assure you that my hair was the opposite of sexy. I could go further into this but long story short, I know what it's like to have hair that just won't seem to keep a curl.
After I got into my teens my hair started doing this weird straight-wavy thing where it couldn't make up its mind until it finally settled into my current inconsistent waves. Thank goodness it did since I am terribly low-maintenance when it comes to my hair, but I just wish it could do the gorgeous beachy look naturally! Because of this tendency to not take a ton of effort to style my hair most days, I happen to adore the product I'm about to share with you because it's a no-brainer. Perfect beachy Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen waves that I've always wanted? Check. Easy learning curve? Check.
Here's my video showing you how to use the Remington Air Wave, a product that Hannah told me about. It's totally as awesome as she said it was!
So here's the low-down on the pros and cons:
- inexpensive (around $23 on Amazon)
- easy to use
- works pretty well as a regular hairdryer
- AWESOME waves that are difficult to achieve otherwise
- works well for hair that is stubborn to curl
- looks really nice on those with non-layered hair especially
- curl lasts days or until I shower next
- a tad bit noisier than other more expensive dryers
- takes up extra storage space
- can make your hair frizzy from air-waving it
All in all, I was highly impressed. I thought only people with naturally perfectly wavy hair could get this hairstyle but look Om-ma! It's not so difficult after all. ^o^
Here's some pics
View from the back. I kind of love this picture. Don't mind my bizarre sweatpants outfit. ;D
And just because she's a charm to end with, here's a little more Mary-Kate Olsen because I adore her. <3 <3
Tell me what you think in the comments! Are you going to pick one up? Have you heard of this before? Do you have naturally perfectly wavy hair that I might want to cut off your hair and make a wig for myself (eww)? Until next time~
UPDATE: I heard people are having difficulty finding the Airwave! I guess it sold out on Amazon. I asked Remington's customer service and they said you can purchase it at Walmart but I'd call and check before you go.
