Karmin G3 Salon Pro Hair Straightener REVIEW

Regular readers of this blog will know that I’m quite the hair straightener addict and the my beloved GHD‘s are never far away. Can Karmin tempt me to their brand with the promises of  tourmaline ceramic smoothing plates and a pretty design? I had to try it to know for myself…

Design

The Karmin G3 Salon Pro Hair Straightener came in a lovely box, a smart shape with a snap closure and the content displayed well. In side lay a carry-case/ combo heat mat (that Detached) which  was black with a light white floral overlay, subtle, but not extreme. The straightener came with  two type of lug fittings as well to make it easy to travel with which was a very sweet addition. There was also a  3 years manufacturers warranty include, which never hurts!

I also really liked the 3- metre carry cord as that’s very helpful when you live in plug socket hell. The pink color was also an extra bonus, as it’s bright and fun, and it’s nice to have a pop of color in the morning.

Vacuum Hairdryer solves age old problem

Hairdrying makes your hair soft, volumized and dry. But it can lead to shedding, flyaways, broken strands and piles of broken pieces sticking to the carpet. Sadly, this is pretty much unavoidable. Well, to an extent. The vacuum hairdryer won’t solve breaking, but will help you keep your apartment free from piles of lint.

The Vacuum Dryer is a concept gadget (read: Can’t buy yet) that is incredibly smart. It’s a simple idea that makes you wonder why it hasn’t been made yet/ One side of the hairdryer “dries” the other vacuums up the flyaways and broken hair. Both utilize a nozzle, and hot air, and it seems pretty self explanatory that you could blow or suck fromt he same device.

Designer Jeong Shin Yoon created a mock up, taking into account the grill needed to capture hair and how the air flow system would work. Sign me up!

Wishlist: Jose Eber Infrared blow dryer

How much would you pay for a hairdryer The Jose Eber Infrared blow dryer is not cheap not cheap at all. Yet somehow I’m drawn to it, and part of the reason is the promises it gives out.

The thing is I really hate blow drying my hair. I hate the noise, I hate the time, I just want the process to be done. The Jose Eber Infrared Blowdryer says that it does two awesome things to the hair: Halves the drying time and makes the hair smoother too. How and why?

Well the premise is that by using infrared light (as well as heat) the air shaft dries FROM THE INSIDE OUT. Like,inside of the hair cuticle. Surreal, but very cool.

It also uses a “Blue, ultra violet light provides antimicrobial properties that prevent buildup and bacteria, deodorizing and refreshing hair during styling.” I don’t know if my hair really needs deodorizing, but this is a cool and smart way to solve my drying problem. I haven’t tried this yet, but from reading a bunch of beauty blogs it really does sound like this might be an awesome product.

Christmas wishlist, maybe?

$149.00 from Ulta

The Hot Iron Holster is genius

This is such a smart idea that I’m half kicking myself that it wasn’t mine. The Hot iron Holster is a portable carrycase for your heated appliances and what’s so amazing about it is that it can GO anywhere. You can poisition it on your night stand, the bathroom counter, wherever and it will stick firmly in place till you peel it up again.

Made from silicone, the pouch part holds hair straighteners and the like securely, without heating up, and the flap part adheres to whatever surface you put it on, no glue or sticky tape needed.

I’m always looking for somewhere to balance my straighteners as I clip my hair out my face and I love the portability of this. Durable is a key watchword here and this will save me from many bathroom burns and curses. Available in three colorways, black, pink and white I think this is one of those, ” You didn’t know you needed it and now you can’t live without it” devices.

$19.99 from The Grommet

International Beauty Show New York 2013

The International Beauty Show is an enormous annual event in New York. It features  exhibition halls full of sparkling powders, wheezing hairdryers blowing out steam, and high cheery calls of dah-ling and bah-by! Students clutching purses full of twenties wandered the halls, slender feet encased in Uggs, and processed hair teased high.

Vendors attempt to lure them with giveaways, and heavily discounted products. They also had exciting new cosmetic lines to show.

The New York International Beauty Show is a great time to assess what the big beauty trends for the next year will be, and there was a lot to take in. I’m going to showcase some of the cool stuff on offer, and give you a nice little teaser for the months to come.

These Cobra Hairdressing shears were [pretty stunning. Love how they come with different handle designs.

Bright shades remain popular. Thick, heavy pigments were being sold by lots of brands.

This is a pretty cool look, a unique ponytail catcher that gives you that Xena Warrior Princess Look.

Just your average cool body art tutorial…
