**The end of this post has an AWESOME deal on products from NuMe that will change your world:)
As runners, we start many of our days with our hair in a ponytail. It’s just part of the game.
I find the sign of a really good run to be that my hair is in snarls (especially if it is raining outside) by the end, with a few hair horns (you know those are attractive…) and it is pulled back tightly in a sweaty ponytail. The more hair horns and crazier the hair by the end of my miles for the day= I must have really worked hard and pushed it… I use it as a very accurate way to judge my fitness at the time;)
While we are on this subject—> one of my biggest pet peeves while running is when I have hair that is touching my face, especially during a race… that is why I love wearing super thick headbands on race day.
Let’s talk about the non-ponytail hair for a second.
One of my favorite comments ever on the blog came in when I first introduced Andrew on the blog a few months ago. She said that she knew that I must have been dating somebody because I was doing my hair a whole lot more regularly and she connected that to a boy being in my life;) Yep, she was right… when Andrew popped into my life I, all of the sudden, started doing my hair again and changing out of running clothes more often;)
PS for my blind date with Andrew I had my sister do my makeup (because she is a professional.. she did my makeup for my wedding too) for the date because I really wanted fancy makeup for the evening. I didn’t even know the guy (well, I mean we had talked on the phone for a full 8 minutes before our first date) but I just had this weird feeling in my gut that he was something special.
Time to talk about what I’ve been using to do my hair lately—> NuMe!! I will never go back to anything else. After I tried them just once, I was hooked. NuMe is recognized as one of the world’s most innovative beauty brands and now I see why. All of their products are salon grade and they’ve got everything from hair straighteners and curling wands to styling sets and personal hair care items!
First, I’ve got a fun little video where I show you how I do my hair with NuMe curling wands!
Hair straighteners… before this one, I felt like I was never able to really get my hair straightened out just the way I wanted it. I couldn’t ever get all of the bumps out. It always frustrated me so I rarely did my hair straight until I started using my NuMe flat iron.
I also really don’t like to spend a lot of time on my hair (I got it from my mom, we try to get in and out of our getting ready routine in the bathroom as quickly as possible) and this one gets hot within seconds of plugging it in. It is so nice that I just go through each chunk of hair once with it and it ends up looking just the way I want it.
The Classic Wand (which is my personal favorite) is perfect for medium to thick hair (another thing I got from my mom;). It is 100% titanium and awesome for the big, loose curls for that summer beachy waves look. I just wrap each piece of hair around the wand and boom… I’m all set to go.
Hallelujah for their clipless wands—> no thank you to bumps in my curls from clips.
Something especially random that I love about the NuMe products is how light they are. I don’t feel like I’m holding up a clunky huge thing each time I curl my hair. I feel spoiled using these because they feel so nice and easy to use.
This is the Titan 3 which includes three pure titanium interchangeable heat barrels—> 19mm, 25mm and 32mm (my favorite). You choose the curl size based on the day just like that.
I love doing Brooke’s hair. I don’t know how to do fancy braids or anything like that but I love curling it and I love putting it in a bun. I remember when I first found out that Brooke was a girl (on 4/25/12 to be exact;) one of the many things I was excited for was to curl her hair. It’s the little things right? PS how she can do that with her tongue, I have no idea.
For Brooke’s hair I especially love to use the Classic Pearl Wand (I showed this in the video too). It is a tourmaline-infused ceramic coated barrel! The barrel is shaped like a pearl and it is PERFECT for mermaid curls. Each time I do her hair with it the results are a little different.
And then once we are all done we are off to exploring Utah and our favorite froyo joints together;)
