Freshen up your look this season with some help from the Remington brand’s Shine Therapy tools
As the weather gets colder, days feel shorter and the seasonal moodiness starts to set in, it’s important to do whatever you can to make yourself feel good both inside and out. For many, that can be as simple as freshening up your hairstyle. With holiday festivities right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to have some fun with your look.
With that in mind, we connected with Toronto-based celebrity hairstylist Cia Mandarello to spotlight five of her current favourite winter hair trends and how we can bring them to life from home using the Remington brand’s coveted range of Shine Therapy hairstyling tools.
Dramatic side part
Go for glamour with this old-school Hollywood-inspired look (as seen on actress Ana De Armas) with a sleek update.
Get the look: Start with clean, blow-dried hair and heat-protecting spray, and use a tail comb to create a deep side part. Next, use the Remington Shine Therapy Argan Oil & Keratin Infused 1-Inch Flat Iron to smooth and straighten your locks from the part, directing your hair down and over the face. “That way, when you tuck it behind the ear, you get that nice sweep across the forehead,” Mandarello says.
Big, voluminous curls
Take a cue from the decade of glam rock and Flashdance and go for bigger-than-life curls this season. This look is great for adding some oomph to curly bangs, too.
Get the look: For this look, use the Remington Pro 1” Mutli-Styler with Twist & Curl Technology. “[Once your curls are set], flip your head upside down and apply a mist of light hold hairspray. Then give it a tousle and go!” Mandarello advises.
If you want a change but you’re not ready for a blunt fringe, this soft, romantic look (as seen on actress Jenna Ortega) may be the style for you.
Get the look: Blow out your bangs to add that soft touch of wispiness with the Remington Shine Therapy Argan Oil & Keratin Hair Dryer. To finish, add a bit of styling powder, rub it into your roots, and pull out those fringe pieces.
Classic ‘90s blowout
Channel your inner Cindy Crawford with this super glamourous look, inspired by the original supermodels.
Get the look: Starting with wet hair, apply volumizing spray at the roots and a blow-dry serum, then use the Remington Shine Therapy Argan Oil & Keratin Hair Dryer and a round brush for a big, voluminous blowout. Next, part your hair down the centre and, starting at the nape of the neck, use the Remington Pro 1” Mutli-Styler with Twist & Curl Technology to curl sections, directing your hair into your face. “Lay the hair flat onto the curling iron so that it remains sleek and smooth,” Mandarello says. Continue to the next section and repeat, moving upward. Let your hair completely cool, then gently comb it out with a wide tooth comb, shake your hair upside down, apply some light hold hairspray, then flip up, and voila!
Give your look an instant edge and take centre-stage with this rockstar look. It works for many different hair textures and is totally versatile.
Get the look: Start by giving your wet hair a rough blow dry using the Remington Shine Therapy Argan Oil & Keratin Hair Dryer to get lots of volume. Next, section your hair into small pieces and use the Remington Shine Therapy Argan Oil & Keratin Infused 1-Inch Flat Iron to create a curl, holding the wand at a 45-degree angle. “If you want to create a ‘70s mullet, flip the hair out, away from the face. For a fun ‘80s look, flip the hair in around the face,” says Mandarello. Finish with lots of texture spray, tousling the hair, and blast your locks using the cool setting on the blow dryer to break up the curls.
Beard trend: 5 o’clock shadow
A bit of stubble is key to this cool look, as seen on Chris Evans.
Get the look: To achieve this style, use the Remington Virtually Indestructible Rotary Shaver 5100 or the Remington Virtually Indestructible All-in-One Grooming Kit. “Use the stubble attachment on the shaver so that it doesn’t get too close to the skin,” suggests Toronto-based barber and founder of The Groomed Society Mikka Gia. Another low-maintenance option: Just use the close shaver in the mornings every two days.
