Kendall Jenner blew us away at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party with her gorgeous blow out. With some impressive volume and an adorable 60’s hair flip, this 22-year-old model was certainly turning heads. Here’s how you can get the same look at home! 1. Pre-Dry Make sure your hair is at least three-quarters dry before you grab your hairdryer. Remember, the hairdryer is just meant to help you style your hair. By towel drying or air drying your hair ahead of time, you’ll help to minimize heat damage. Then either take a flat brush or tousle your hair with your fingers and dry your hair in the opposite direction of growth until it’s about 90% dry. 2. Section Off Use one or two clips to tie up the top of your hair so you can work on what’s called the halo section of your hair—the crown and the bottom sections around your head. Take the top of the hair next and then finish off with the hair at the back of the head. 3. The Right Brush Invest in some high-quality, round brushes. A ceramic brush will hold heat better, so it will lend more bounce and texture especially to finer hair. You can also use our fabulous hi-volume brush. Modeled off of a traditional boar bristle brush, this brush will give you a firm hold on your hair allowing you to pull thick, curly locks nice and straight. 4. Up & Out Make sure to always pull the hair up and out. Start drying at the root very close to the scalp for plenty of volume and frizz-control. You'll want to point the hairdryer downward toward the ends of the hair following the brush to make sure its smooth and shiny. Don’t forget to work the ends until they are completely dry and polished. Moisture tends to collect at the ends of the hair creating frizz and ruining an otherwise picture-perfect, salon-quality look. 5. Rock & Roll: Roll the hair around your brush and rock it back and forth while blow drying it to create a natural curl in the hair. When you’re finished, gently release the hair and pin up the curl to let it set. Alternate directions as you go around the head so that the hair doesn’t clump together into one large curl. 6. Cool Down: Let the hair cool for at least five to ten minutes before removing the clips. If you’re in a hurry, use the cold shock button on your blow dryer to help speed up the process. 7. Extra Products: Make sure you’re applying a nice smoothing spray or cream to your hair before you start blow drying. Then apply a bit of Remilia serum to your hairline and ends to prevent further damage. Try not to use too many conditioners besides the Cosmocap though. Leave-in conditioners are heavy, and they tend to weigh hair down making it harder for you to create the volume you need for a blowout. Keep either sea salt spray or dry shampoo on hand while drying your hair. Apply a bit to your roots especially when you get to your crown to add some extra oomph. Finish the look off with a bit more serum and just a touch of hair spray and you’re ready to go. With a Cosmocap and these seven tips, you’ll be runway-ready. Grab your red carpet dress and prepare for the paparazzi.
LET’S TALK CURTAIN BANGS
The urge to cut bangs is one known around the world. At first you’re excited to explore a new look, channeling Zoë Kravitz in that one scene of The Batman (2022) is never a bad idea. But then, you’re greeted with the thought of the awkward grow-out phase that comes next, and suddenly you’ve once again backed out of getting bangs.
So, how do we stop this cycle? We change, and we adapt. We give to you, Curtain Bangs!
Why Curtain Bangs?
Half the worry, with double the fun, Curtain Bangs are the new way to cut bangs. With no grow out stage awkwardness, and totally less maintenance, Curtain Bangs are about to be your new personality trait (Which we 100% support here at Remilia).
What are Curtain Bangs?
Curtain bangs are the cool older cousin of regular bangs. Inspired by the 70’s, they work on all face shapes and sizes, and enhance your features to really open up the eyes and cheekbones. They work for almost every hair texture, and they don’t really need much styling… They’re perfect and we love them for it!
How exactly are they different from regular bangs?
Curtain Bangs require a lot less hair to be cut, and are a lot longer than your typical straight across front fringe. This makes them uber appealing to those with commitment issues, giving them the freedom to cut their bangs to the length they choose, depending on how bold they’re willing to be.
How to style
- Start with a prep product. We love a good mousse and a heat protectant.
- Blow dry all your bangs to the right, and then change directions and blow dry all your bangs to the left. Repeat this a few times until your bangs are 50% dry, to give them a bit of bounce.
- Using your Hi-Volume Hair Brush, grab the hair with your brush and bring it forward, away from your forehead. Then, spin the brush up and back away from your face, and repeat until both left and right bang are dried.
- To finish, moisturize your mane with one of our Cosmocap’s. Simply squeeze the contents of the Cosmocap into the palm of your hand, and then massage the serum evenly into your hair.
To start off, our condolences… we know how heartbreaking it is to use up all of your Cosmocaps. However, making sure your Cosmocap empties are recycled properly helps take away the hurt, and also gives a high five to mother nature (who’s totally going to high five you back). We’ve done all the hard work for you Studies show that less than 12% of plastic is recycled, with approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution finding its way into our waterways and ocean everyday. To put it simply, it’s a big BIG issue and totally not what we’re all about. Here at Remilia, we're big fans of Planet Earth. We’re strong believers in making sustainable decisions when it comes to the products we consume, which is why we strive to make our products as environmentally friendly as possible. Not only is the packaging of our Cosmocaps reusable AND recyclable, our Cosmocap Capsules themselves are totally biodegradable. Don’t believe us? Let us show you how to melt down your Cosmocaps. It’s quick and easy, and also… kind of fun to watch! How to Biodegrade the Biodegradable Who doesn’t love a good science experiment? Simply pop your empty Cosmocap cases into boiling water and watch as the capsules melt, you’ll have a heavenly smelling liquid solution in no time. The boiling water not only dissolves the capsule super quickly, but once cooled, you’re left with a “Cosmo-politan” (it’ll catch on) that is perfect for the garden. Veggies, Plants, or that indoor Monstera that you’re trying to save will LOVE the nutrients. Don’t have a green thumb? No stress at all! Your fun little concoction is totally safe to pour down the drain. Oh how we love versatility! What next? Stock up on more Cosmocaps of course.
