Yes sorry another post about the Babyliss Big Hair styler but after my enthusiastic review yesterday I was asked to do a more in-depth post on how it works. So here it goes.
I washed my hair this morning as usual, spritzed on some heat protection spray and pre-dried my hair with my normal hair dryer until it was damp but no longer wet. You can use the Babyliss styler on wet hair too, but damp is recommended.
Here’s me with my hair still damp before using the styler.
Now one thing I like about the styler is that you just plug it in and go, there’s no waiting around for it to heat up as you would with a straightener. As you can see the thing looks like a giant brush, it’s got three heat settings (cold, warm and hot) and the brush head rotates both clockwise and anti-clockwise.
All you do is take a section of your hair, hold the brush against the root and press the rotate button for your desired direction. It’s really not that tricky to figure out and if your hair gets stuck you simply stop the rotating and pull out the brush, easy.
Here’s me styling away, I especially love it for my fringe.
It doesn’t take very long at all to do a section. I have lots of very thick hair and if I use a straightener I have to go over sections many, many times to get them straight – the Babyliss is much quicker, it really only takes seconds. I was in a real hurry this morning and the whole styling (including taking pictures) took only about ten minutes.
Here’s me half styled, it gives a good comparison between finished hair and non-styled, big difference, huh!
And here’s me all done. I often wear my hair in this kind of very straight 60s style and honestly, using the styler is the quickest and easiest way of achieving it, so yes, I love it!
