volumized wavy curls with a conical iron

Hair is a tricky business. A few weeks ago I had six inches cut off after I got super brave and decided it was time for a change.
Don't get me wrong, it TOTALLY was.  I was very much over the typical, curled, long and blonde moment (for now anyway). I was bored. It's so funny how hard it can be so hard to get used to styling a shorter length, even if it's not that dramatically different.  Because I wanted to embrace the more fun, mid-length look and get used to styling it with a bit more volume, I felt like a conical iron was the way to go.
Surprisingly, it wasn't that hard to get the hang of! I had never really had any experience with styling my hair with one before (other than a single failed attempt a few years ago).  I was shocked at how fast and easy it can be!

Oh, and not to mention, the crazy volume!

So this is how I create my volumized wavy curls with my new conical iron. I hope you enjoy it!


Hope this helps some of you who may be in a bit of a "hair rut" with your regular curling iron, or those struggling to learn how to get back in a "styling groove" with a fresh cut. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  4. Hi Tiffany I love your hair colour I have been jet black for so long I'm trying to get back to my natural colour which seems to be the same as what you have now. Was wondering if you do a half head or full head of foils with colour on the roots or if you now do a root stretch? My hair colour is currently orange on the ends (not a good look) from striping the black out but we left the roots a soft brown, I would really love to know how you have achieved your current colour as that is what I'm trying to achieve. Any feedback would be great...

  13. I love the new length and color!! I would love to cut my hair shorter, but my hubby loves long hair. But I do have a question, how do you pair your eye shadow colors with clothing? I love color, but then I worry about it clashing with what I'm wearing, but I also do not want to be matchy-matchy with blue eyeshadow, blue shirt etc. I do my makeup before I dress, so most of the time I stay neutral with the naked palette. But I want to put to use the awesome colors that I have. On a side note, I have been watching your videos faithfully for the past year, and I love your videos!! You have definitely made my makeup style more glamorous!! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and expertise!!!

  14. i just went out and bought the iron you linked but i think it is the wrong one.. yours looks bigger than the one you linked which was the 1" medium one. Is yours maybe the large? thanks

  15. I'm a little confused about the Alternative product, the hemp one you love: is the one you show here an old one you still have? It sounded like the website was "back ordered" so you didn't order from there. I'd love to know if you did indeed find it! Thanks!!
