Why I Only Style Hair With Round Brushes Along with a Hair Dryer

You most likely haven't encountered numerous hair stylists who will not use a curling iron whenever they fashion hair. I am a hair stylist that does not utilize a curling iron. I only make use of a blow dryer along with a round brush. To put it differently I only blow-style hair. (The sole exception is after i do an inverted curl on medium to extensive hair or make use of a flat iron for tremendous straight styling or use a 50 percent spherical brush for quite small hair). Some individuals are wanting to know why.

Usually, irrespective of which salon you visit, the curling iron would be the hair styling tool of selection. I want the round brush over a curling iron, using different sizes of spherical brushes and also a fantastic hand-held hair dryer. I'll let you know why inside of a moment.

Now I am not talking about the approach in which you spot many round brushes through the entire hair and depart them there a couple of minutes before getting them out to design the hair. The approach I am speaking about entails using inch-wide sections and blow styling them, that may give the hairstyle great body but a all-natural seem.

I'm able to now consider what you are considering, that styling hair this way cannot be excellent, which the design can have no physique and it will in no way final. Most of the people would believe that since they have got never ever had their hair styled by a stylist who was very good at blow styling hair. I in some cases get requested by a fresh client to work with the curling iron due to the fact she thinks that her design will very last for a longer time. I nevertheless reveal to her that utilizing the blow styling method are going to be a lot better.

Opposite to what plenty of people imagine, when employing the appropriate procedure of course, your hairstyle will past lengthier when blow styled. Not simply will it past longer, it'll also look extra organic. There is not any hairstyle that cannot be created that has a round brush and also a hand held hair dryer, be it gentle curls or significant curls, smooth or straight, for short or long hair, curly or straight hair, types with quantity or much less volume.

The rationale why I improve benefits with blow styling is this. To start with, I am able to access the roots with the hair far better simply because in the stream in the scorching air with the blow dryer which ends up in shaping the hair ideal with the scalp and supplying it any carry I want by holding the round brush plus the blow dryer in the correct angle and manipulating the recent air near to the root place. This best hot air brush for short hair uk can make it doable to form this place in the hair and provides it the correct lift ideal within the roots.

Attaining that carry will make a huge variance to how your hairstyle will glance and past. It truly is unattainable to perform using the curling iron, to receive this shut towards the scalp because it would burn up your scalp. Besides, applying a curling iron hardly ever seems to be as organic as when hair is styled with a spherical brush, that's also one among the shortcomings of using a curling iron.

Next, and really importantly, I've much more overall flexibility in styling hair for the reason that I can use diverse sizes of brushes determined by how I would like the hairstyle to glimpse.

I identified the various results of hair styling resources by myself hair, specially since I model my hair myself. It really is a fantastic way to figure out what performs very best and above the a long time I have perfected the technique of blow styling. I love hairstyles that look natural but very last for several times and in my impression the blow styling strategy could be the most effective for accomplishing this final result.

Reconsidering my TBR stack

As some of you may recall, at the start of our lovely pandemic I created a TBR stack to tackle while we were in lockdown. The idea was that a visible pile of what I wanted to clear off of my shelves would be a great reminder should I ever need inspiration for how to while away the hours.


Since then I have read over a dozen books from the stack, which I then either added to my book box or occasionally decided to retain. At this point, it isn't unreasonable to expect that my stack has been whittled down to a small pile. Yet today it has more books on it than it did when I started it:




In retrospect I realize I made an error in how I managed the pile. Instead of confining it to the books I collected initially to comprise it I kept adding to it new titles that I wanted to clear from my shelves. The problem now is that even as I'm aware of all of the progress I've made in paring down my TBR titles I feel as though I've made zero headway in getting through them. It's a frustrating and depressing feeling after months of effort.


So now I'm done adding books to it. I've already winnowed out a couple that I've accepted I was never going to be able to summon the interest to read or re-read, and now the challenge is to reread what I have there. If I can remain true to my intention, I should be able to eliminate the stack by the end of the year

Fair Warning
Fair Warning - Michael Connelly

This took me almost an hour to be able to post something. I just want to scream. Trying to add tags and all of that took me a really long time too. 


Interesting third book looking at the character of Jack McEvoy. Or as I started to call him, his own worst enemy. I honestly dithered about 3 or 4 stars, but ultimately gave it 4 stars because I thought this one had a lot of interesting sub-plots that I was glad to see Connelly tackle (privacy and DNA). But I was tempted to give it 3 stars because Jack is beyond annoying at this point with his constant need to be a jerk and awful to Rachel. Also it's kind of annoying that Jack will get some success and then we find him 10 years later down in his fortunes (again) due to mess he did (again). Also if you are a serial killer one wonders why anyone even goes near McEvoy.


"Fair Warning" finds Jack McEvoy 10 years later after the events in the second book. Readers know that he and Rachel Walling had plans to open their own agency after she finishes up with the FBI. Rachel was in a Harry Bosch book, a few years back, and I can't remember what book it was. She mentions at the time that she was with Jack though as an aside to Harry. So between that Bosch book and now, Jack and Rachel are once again done. We don't get the details, initially, but just go with your gut that Jack messed things up. When you read what happens you are going to go yep he messed things up. Shocker.


Jack is now working at a site called "Fair Warning" that deals with consumer warnings. It doesn't sound too exciting and you wonder if Jack misses the big stories that he used to chase down. When Jack is interviewed by the police due to his connection to a murder victim though, he starts to investigate the dead woman and finds a surprising connection between her getting her DNA tested to then being murdered. When Jack starts to identify more victims, he is put on the radar of three men. Jack also reaches out to his former lover, Rachel Walling in order to put together a profile of the killer. Connelly moves the story back and forth between Jack, two men, and the murderer.


Honestly Jack kind of sucks. I think that Rachel and other characters really drove this story for me. He stays selfish and doesn't trust anyone and constantly bleats about his story, his scoop, and wanting to ride along with the FBI or police. We do get into the rights of the media in this one which I do think is important now more than ever, but Jack once again kind of sucks so you want him to just be quiet after a while. He also messes so many things up that you are kind of exhausted by him.


The murder mystery and how it ties into DNA and privacy though I thought was cleverly done. I have to say that I have never done one of those DNA tests things and have zero plans to do so. There's way too many caveats and I am always surprised that the same people who want to yell about their freedom don't care they are giving up a lot of information to a random DNA site.


The ending leaves you with more questions than answers though. We have Jack moving into a new direction which honestly makes sense for him and for a lot of journalists these days. However, he still wants something more. With the ending I think we end up seeing a fourth book in this series.


The whole Fair Warning publication is apparently real so if readers for a need, they can click on it and see some stories.

28 Summers by Elin Hilderbrand
My Rating: 5 Stars
This book starts with the reader already knowing the ending. Some reviews I've seen state that it would've been better to save what Mallory's fate is until the end of the book, but I feel that the reason Elin disclosed her illness was so you could appreciate what a full life she led, although bittersweet.

This book is based on the play and movie, Same Time Next Year. Mallory Blessing and Jake McCloud come into one another's life via her brother Cooper Blessing and connect romantically almost instantly in 1993.  Although they have chemistry from the beginning, Jake is in a relationship with his childhood sweetheart and Mallory is starting her life over on Nantucket. They agree to spend Labor Day weekend together every year, no matter what is happening in their lives.  are not to contact one another throughout the year unless there's a marriage, pregnancy or death, which they abide by.
I loved how each chapter began with real life highlights of events that were happening in the specific year.  Another highlight was the mouth-watering details in the meals they prepared and ate!!! I need some recipes for these dishes Elin!!!  She also peppers characters and businesses from her other books throughout the story, which is very comforting; makes you feel like you've been here before (and if you've read any of her books before, you kind of have been!)

- I did not enjoy the politics within the book. (Beach Read...trying to escape reality here!!) - At times I felt sad for both Mallory and Jake because their situation could've been different if they were just honest with themselves and others in their lives.  They could've had more time together during their lifetime (life is short!)  - Infidelity. It is bothersome that both characters so easily could drift back to one another for one weekend a year and then just return to the rest of their lives for the remainder of the year.  ( they did find it difficult to separate and thought of one another when not together...torturing themselves.)
If this is your very first Elin Hilderbrand read, please don't totally judge her on this book alone.  It was a bit more 'serious' and depressing than some of her other books. Checkout 'The Blue Bistro' to experience just one of my favorites of hers!
