3. Use a flat iron or wand, depending on the texture you want. Slide your flat iron root to tip through horizontal or vertical sections, turning it out a just a touch at the ends (sectioning horizontally will kick the ends up, vertically will kick them back, away from the face). Or, wrap large 2 inch sections around your barrel iron or wand, turning hair away from the face. For a softer, more relaxed wave, start wrapping each section at least 2-3" away from the root and leave the same amount loose at the ends.

Hairstylist and Strength x Beauty CEO Lisa Abbey says less is more, and makes it easy to style on the fly. Her new clean beauty line is a super multitasker, and offers everything you need in full and to-go sizes. From paraben, sulfate, gluten and sodium-chloride free cleansers and conditioners, to keratin-infused blow out serums & balms and soft beach babe wave enhancers.
Is there a woman who doesn't need longer-lasting blow outs, or purse sized products for a quick touch-up? “The whole idea is less is more; women shouldn’t be slaves to dozens of hair care products and styling should be easy. This is what I really believe in,” said Lisa Abbey, a stylist and hair care line creator who’s pared down her own line to just a few key must-haves and convenient travel & on-the-go sets.
The line is not just for travelers like Abbey. "Our new 'Strength x Beauty' line is a revolution in clean hair care and on-the-go hair care & beauty.” she says. “Other companies keep adding products; all of our products are multi-use so you only need a few.
