GlamPalm Easy steps to creating a great hairstyle by Yuki Ng

Yuki Ng’s loyal readers would all know that my hair is under the professional management of  Jean Yip Singapore. However, it’s impossible to visit the hair salon everyday. So how do I manage to keep my hair (and hey, I’ve natural curls!) in tiptop style all the time? To be honest, the hairdos you see on me regularly- be it an event, vacation photos or selfies- are all done by me. So what’s my secret? Here’s a shoutout to stylists and especially those out there with hard to manage hair! Don’t miss this great product! When you’re transiting from your previous hairstyle, as the everlasting wait for your hair to grow past your shoulder stretches on and you wake up everyday with terrible bed hair… This is the time for our trusty hair assistant — GlamPalm Ceramic Hair Styler! IMG_0827 Here, let me share my past experience with hair curlers or ceramic flat iron:

    • Previously, I’ve tried many curlers and flat iron from your typical beauty products franchises. I went through several different models, be it brand names or otherwise, since they were pretty cheap and I didn’t feel the need to buy an expensive hair beauty equipment. But it all ended in a disappointment and huge waste of money!

 

    • After visiting a shop which specialises in selling hair beauty products, I bought a pricey ceramic flat iron that did justice to the cash I shelled out. It gave my hair a shine and bounce immediately, and the hairdo stayed in shape for a long time. Although it was fantastic, everyday use resulted in dry hair for me. Two years ago, it waved goodbye and departed from my life (yeah, it was no longer functional by then), and I couldn’t find another ceramic flat iron like it again.

 

    • Subsequently, I faced dissatisfaction with many curlers and flat irons. If my hairdo collapses within an hour, what’s the point?

 

    • There was a curling iron that automatically rolls your hair into it and gives you a wavy hairstyle. Call me a worry wart, but the thoughts of having my hair stuck in it were too scary for me to give it a go. I’ve heard of this story about a girl who had her hair caught in the curling iron, and she had to cut her hair off on the spot! Isn’t that horrifying? Besides, the curling iron itself is really bulky.

 

    • Through a friend, I was introduced to the curling iron below. It’s really not bad, but the learning curve is steep for this. If you’re a newbie in DIY hairdos, it’s probably hard to get a hang of it. I had a hard time manoeuvring it too because of the product design. There are some safety concerns too, especially if you turn up the heat. Just last month, I burnt my forehead! And it has a really large body, so packing it is a problem.2015-02-11 16.06.27

But why? That’s because a flat iron not only straightens your hair, it can create curls too when using the right technique!

Yes, it’s possible to create curls with a ceramic flat iron!!!

 

Using GlamPalm, I’ll be demonstrating a few simple but crucial steps to create the curls. Remember to place more emphasis on the on the arc of the turn (?) and the angle of your hand — these determines the degree of your curls and how bouncy it turns out! The trick to this is practice, practice and more practice!

Tips for newbies:

    1. Try each and every heat setting, from low to high. It’s important to know the performance of the product.

 

  • Turn the temperature to 150-160 degrees and use it on just a small bundle of your hair. Start small and try it until you have enough confidence to handle the high temperature. Eventually, you’ll be able to save a lot more time when styling.

 

 

  • You can opt to wear heat insulation gloves.

 

 

  • Treat it as you’re simply brushing your hair when practicing at home. Turn it to a low heat setting, and occasionally, bring your hair up before releasing it freely. Familiarise yourself with how different height can create different type of curls, you’ll be able to create a better shine and bounce thereafter.

 

 

  • For dyed hair, do remember to use a leave in hair mask…?!, as high heat can cause your hair colour to fade.

 

 

  • To sustain the hairstyle for a longer period, spray some hairspray!

 

 

  • Watch hairstyling tutorials on YouTube during your free time. Regardless of how complex or difficult a hairstyle is, with effort and practice, you’ll be able to recreate it!

 

 

I firmly believe that a great hairstyle contributes a good 50% to your appearance! So try to allocate an extra 10 minutes daily to style your hair, it will definitely score you more points! I strongly recommend GlamPalm Singapore’s ceramic flat iron, it will be a great assistant to equally gorgeous hair. Adios, bad hair days!
