But if you have dreams of long, silky hair, and your current heat styling tools are letting you down, the T-Studio Silk Ceramic collection of styling tools from Remington ca really help you rock your hair routine. For some, they might just be a dream come true.
Shake up your hair routine with one of these stylers, and find yourself smiling, a lot more often!
I tried just one tool form the Remington T-Studio Silk Ceramic Collection, but I have to say before I continue, that the bottom line is that I was very impressed. The T-Studio line features silk ceramic technology that smooths hair very effectively and leaves it feeling a bit like silk, thanks to what Remington claims is 10X more ceramic and 2x smoother slide. While I’m not quite sure what this claim is being measured against, I can tell you that The flat iron I tried with wide 2″ floating plates for $37.99 really wowed me because it lets someone with long or thick or coarse hair (or all three) can reduce the amount of time they have to fuss with a flat iron. And frizz and fly-aways were a lot less, too.
A flat iron with a 1″ plate, or maybe 1 1/2″ plates, is the norm, and 2″ plates means you can steamroll through flat ironing at lot faster because you can put more hair in a section, cutting down on the number of passes you have to do.
This particular iron isn’t really expensive, but it has a lot of professional style bells and whistles. A salon length swivel cord makes it easy to work on either side of your head without strangling yourself with the power cord. The lighted, digital controls are on the side, so you don’t accidentally boost the heat all the way up as you grasp the handle. The temperature window is also lighted and features large numbers so it is easy to see at nay angle. If you wish, you can even lock in the temperature while you are styling, so it stays consistent, and the iron heats up to 455 degrees, which is seriously high. You can get the iron to functional heat in about 15 seconds, but if you get distracted and forget to turn it off, there is a 60-minute automatic shut off. This safety feature is a really important one, because you can cause seriously harm if an iron stays on too long.
The fire engine red color looks really cool and makes it fun to use. The edges of the plates are slightly rounded so your hair doesn’t hang like a stick, great on a 2″ wide flat iron. But this particular wide iron is best when you’re going for model-edque straight hair, and not for curls. Try the slim iron at $34.99 if you’re going for a straight look that curves at the ends, or get one of the T-Studio curling wands.
This may seem like a lot for a budget-friendly product, but the iron is nicely made and substantial. It delivers the silky and straight hair that is promised, and I think my hair actually resisted frizz a lot longer, too. There is also a 4 year limited warranty. While I didn’t try the other tools, based on this one, I’ll go out on a limb a bit and say that the other styling products in the line shpi;d be equally effective and fun to use.

Alas, even with good hair styling tools, weather, and changes in your own body chemistry, can cause your look to be lackluster. For days of full “hair fail” there are inexpensive (and fun) remedies! When bad hair days happen, Remington has some hair enhancers that can make a difference in how your hair looks and feels, in literally, seconds. It’s not magic, it’s just hair accessories! I didn’t realize Remington even made hair accessories, but they have all sorts of clips and bands and barrettes and bobbies and ponytail holders that you can find at Target and they’re priced at just $2.00-$10.000.
Whether you’re growing in bangs that just got a bit too long to let hang on their own, or you’re dealing with an unfortunate haircut, or maybe you just feel like dressing up your same-old, same-old, style, adding a “little something” shows you’ve made an effort.
For example, this Floral print wide headband in chiffon fabric is just $7.00 and has an elasticized back so it stays put on your head, The print is festive and Spring-like, but it’s not so bright or bold that it detracts from your outfit. Wear it open and wide, or scrunch it for a thinner band — there are two pieces in one…a pink and a blue. It’s so versatile! Or, go with two mini-clipped rosettes in bright pink and blue, to add a touch of whimsy or to deal with fly-away pieces. They’re just $7.00 for two, too!
Metallics are always popular. Metallics are a look that never goes out of style. Show your girly side, but with a bit of an edge, with this faux leather classic bow headband (it is available in black and gold, too). At $7.00 each, you won’t be paying a pot of gold for these beauties, either.
If you are really pinching pennies, $2.50 gets you 25 pastel bobby pins in yellow, mint green, rose, lavender, and pink. The Advice Sisters saw a lot of bobby pins being used backstage at fashion week, but not just for practical purposes. They were being grouped and used in bunches, as hair jewelry!
