Beach Babe styling tool http://www.nymbrands.com (available at ULTA)
A new kind of beach wave emerged on the runways this fall (for Spring/Summer 2014). Not Your Mother’s lead stylist, Drew J. Noreen: Hair Designer+MUA shows how to recreate the look here with the new Beach Babe styling system.
1. How is the Beach Babe 2 in 1 styling system different from a regular curling iron?
Drew: “The biggest difference you will notice with the Beach Babe tool is that you have 2 attachments. Instead of the typical cylinder shaped iron, you have a more oval shaped iron and a bubble wand. The oval shape will give you a deeper, more relaxed wave perfect for creating a beach-y feel and the bubble wand will give you an alternating curl pattern due to its concaved shape.”
2. When would I use the bubble wand and when would I use the waving wand?
Drew: “The bubble wand is going to be the perfect choice when you are looking for a tighter and natural looking curl. The waving wand is ideal for soft texture and undulating waves.”
3. What type of hair, hairstyle and look is this best for?
Drew: “The Beach Babe tool is best for almost any hair type and/or style! Because of its dual attachment, it can be used on short to long hair and curly to straight to create a multitude of styles and shapes.”
4. How do I protect my hair when I heat style it?
Drew: “Whenever you are styling with any type of heating tool… be it a blow dryer, flat or curling iron, make sure to always protect hair with a thermal heat protectant. I recommend trying Not Your Mother’s Beat the Heat. It’s a simple to use mist that you can spray on and brush through wet or dry hair before styling.”
Although summer is over, that doesn’t mean you can’t stop looking like you just went to the beach. Check out my review of “Not Your Mother’s Sea Salt Spray”.

Alright I know probably 75% of my followers are guys but I am going to get girly for a second (to make my blog just another category).
For my ladies,
I bought this the other day, you have to try it. If you have annoying straight hair like me (top before picture) that does not curl, this is magic. My hair just dries straight without doing anything to it at all, and it’s super thick. I’ve tried everything to curl it, and nothing stays or really works. I’m not big on products as I mentioned I never have to do anything to my hair. But this was $4, and it smells amazing. It gave just the subtle beach wave I wanted (bottom pic). And it lasted the entire night at the concert without hair spray (another thing I’m afraid of). So anyway I recommend this and if you have any questions on how I made the magic happen just ask. The end.
P.s. CVS, Walmart, anywhere
