@copa- Yes, early 30s. So not freak out time, just thinking time… I think we are leaning towards a smaller thing in 2021. Wow, that speaks a lot to his character!December 1, 2020 at 1:20 pm #968281Cleopatra_30Participant
@hfantods, CONGRATS! Seems like a big week for people in my social network, a family friend proposed to their now fiancé this past week, my cousin got engaged the other day, and now you! Wonder what is in the air….
That is such a sweet way to propose 🙂December 1, 2020 at 4:04 pm #968296MaterialsGirlParticipant
Congrats hfantods! That’s super cute 🙂
@Copa, you can always try the antique/vintage ring avenue. We got mine at Beverley R’s, but I wear a plain rose gold band 90% of the time. Also.. courthouse is the way to go!!! I vote San Fran with a casual bbq back in Chicago.
okay, remind me everyone.. it’s the Revlon hot brush everyone likes, right?
Also, my son is so stinking cute. I forgot how little they are! My 2 year old is adjusting pretty well, but has some “terrible two” moments now and again. My parents just left to go back home, so now I”m on my own. Wish me luckDecember 1, 2020 at 4:15 pm #968297
Yes, the Revlon one step styler & volumizer.
Pros: inexpensive, easy, smoothes out even curly hair, fast, gives you a straight blowout with volume in one step
Cons: You can really only do one look, it gets super hot on high setting and a lot of people say they need the high setting.
I also really like the John Frieda one, and it gives more wave at your ends but is not as fast.
And finally, I invested in the Dyson Airwrap and it blew my mind.December 1, 2020 at 4:16 pm #968298
If you say “hot brush” or “blowout” in the mirror, I appear out of the darkness.December 1, 2020 at 4:20 pm #968299ktfranParticipant
Ok, I can legit not look into a mirror in a dark room because of that bloody mary shit growing up. I avert my gaze.December 1, 2020 at 4:27 pm #968300MaterialsGirlParticipant
haha i knew i would say “hot brush” and kate would appear! Magic! I have the conair spin brush currently but you need to partially dry your hair for it to work best and then I feel like the spinning is probably not the greatest for my hair?December 1, 2020 at 4:39 pm #968301
Right, the John Frieda is like that but doesn’t spin. And you need to rough dry or air dry first to like 60-80%.
You shouldn’t use the Revlon on really wet hair either, or any brush. Before you start styling, your hair should be partially dry. That only takes me 1-2 minutes with a dryer though, hitting my roots.December 1, 2020 at 4:53 pm #968302CopaParticipant
I have the Revlon and John Frieda brushes. The Revlon is very fast (I use it on high, it is very hot, but my hair isn’t any worse from it according to my stylist). The end result is like you got a blowout with a paddle brush. It even gets my sister’s very curly hair, VERY thick hair straight in a relatively short amount of time. My style with it withstands humidity very well (did both Savannah and Nashville in July with that one). I’ve seen it at Costco, if you’re a member.
The John Frieda one takes longer but the end result is nicer. This one doesn’t pass the humidity test for me, which was a bummer.
I don’t find either one does much for me in terms of volume, but I have thick hair so I’m okay on that front.
I’ve also seen T3 hair tools at Costco, which are pricier but nice if you are in the market for a “normal” hair dryer.December 1, 2020 at 4:58 pm #968303
I think the Costco version of the Revlon is titanium or something and a little smaller, which might give you more of a bend at the ends. You get some with the regular one but not a wave.
Nothing holds up for me in humidity unless I have a $$$smoothing treatment in my hair.December 1, 2020 at 4:58 pm #968304
Now the Air Wrap LEGIT gives you volume, without a root spray or anything.December 1, 2020 at 5:09 pm #968305CopaParticipant
I haven’t paid attention to if the Costco one is identical, but yeah, often their products are a little different. My sister had the Revlon one and loved it (she used to spend SO much time straightening her hair instead of rocking her natural curls). Hers crapped out after a few years of frequent use and when she purchased a new one, got a knock-off that she seems to like just as much. It might be Hot Tools? I’m not sure the brand, but I think at this point several companies have their own versions or Revlon’s, so you can take a look at price points. I’ve seen on on Amazon that might well be Amazon brand that’s cheaper but gets just as good reviews.
