How to curl with and without a curling iron



My how to is how do you curl hair without heat or a curling irons. I was browsing YouTube when I stumbled upon the video. Before you attempt to start curl you're hair you will need, Hairspray, and Hair clips. That simple, from there take your middle and ring finger and hold them together making sure the other fingers are out of the way. Then take your hair split down a fair portion that you know will fit over your fingers, then wrap it tightly around your fingers after your sure its tight take the hairspray, and generously spray around the curl, then put the hair clip through the hole as you part it out of your fingers and clip it to your head. Repeat this as you go around the head after you are done leave to sit for at least a good hour or longer if you feel needed. 



My second how to do will be one of the newest curling irons there are. The Conair Curl Secret. I happened too get one of these recently and have learned the dos and don'ts, first off don't attempt to use unless your hair has just been dried and strait. I know this because i attempted it i found the curls didn't come out right and they spit out more curls. If you don't own one me saying spit out might sound silly but because this device sucks in your hair. If it happens to become knotted or you put too much hair in it, it simple release the hair it had wrapped up before it could be tangled or stuck. Pretty cool if you ask me :) but too move on to actually use it, there is a curve in the gap where you can lay a normal amount of hair after laying it all the way across just close it then it sucks up the hair placing it in the rounded hole and release when complete and from there just repeat. I found this to be the funniest and easiest way to curl hair as long as your hair is smooth and strait enough to work.

My Book Review of "Standards Text Book For Professional Estheticians."

My book is called Standards Textbook for Professional Estheticians, and  was written by Joel Gerson. Since the whole book isn't about hair, I found a few pages in Chapter Two "The History of grooming and cosmetology." I'll start this with the Egyptians.  They are the first people we know that started cosmetology and their face, nails, and hair were seen as a fine art, The most popular hairstyles you would find from them would of been there elaborate wigs and head dresses. I wish there was more information on them, like why they felt so strongly about their beauty status with there hair. Then we'd move on to Hebrews. Hebrews were also known for their cleanliness and loved  fragrances.the Hebrews were  known for their beautiful skin and hair.

The Romans stole most of their beauty tricks from the Greeks, like their oils. Men started the trend of shaving and it quickly became popular. They also discovered products that made bleach and dyes for what we'd use today on our hair, As this book goes on I found a lot of information I had already blogged about with Africans and Japanese. I noticed there was a lot of information I had already learned in this book.

But then, it moved to the Middle Ages the time of royalty and knights, castles of wealth,and the poor peasants. During the time where the poor couldn’t afford any fashion,Though for the wealthier class Head dresses were all the rage! Their intricate hairstyles, are just very fancy braids would be the best way to explain it. I felt they needed a lot more information on this topic and plan to look into it.


I also read about The Age of Extravagance from 1755-1793 the time era was called this because of the extreme use of high end beauty products from the wealthy, and woman bathing in baths of straw berries and milk. Didn't exactly say what it did for them...but seems interesting. You would probably best remember the time with powdered wigs the woman and gentle men would wear. These hairstyles were outrageously unneeded and very silly.    


Through the Victorian Age most women held their hair up with dressed hats, then the 20's hit the era showed more short bob haircuts through the time. While the 30's went for the platinum blonde sleek look through here and the 40's a lot of the styles were just copying whatever was on the movie screen or magazines.
.
The 50's and 60's could be remembered by their huge hair to the strait, sleek hippie styles.

This book was made back in the 1900's so it stops in the 70's and 80's then gives a peek to what they imagined our generation would dress like apparently we're a little behind from there expectations I feel their thoughts on our fashion now a days was very off though.
