Since summer is now officially over, we think it’s time to ditch the flip-flops and get your Ugg Boots ready for Autumn/Winter! All that heat that has been applied to your hair over the summer to get curls and waves, it’s to try something new! Straight hair can be really striking but we are going to tell you how you can get this without using straightening irons.

The Denman D79 Straightening Brush is like a straightening iron but it is not electrical. It is equipped with boar bristle to smooth the hair and make it super glossy and shiny. As it is not electrical this makes our straightening brush much better for your hair and it won’t damage it.

D79 cut outHow To Use It

1. Towel dry your hair until it is damp.

2. Take the Denman D79 Straightening Brush (Click here for USA Site) and begin to blowdry the hair straight using this brush. Clamp the straightening brush on a small section of damp hair. Point the hairdryer at the vented section of the brush and slowly glide both the brush and hairdryer down that section of hair to straighen it.

3. By using this straightening brush you are straightening your hair without causing any damage as flat irons do. As this brush has natural boar bristles, these will gently grip the hair and smooth the cuticle for a straight, glossy and manageable look.

4. Continue this technique all over your hair.

 

 

Marilyn Monroe Inspired Look!

Blond beautyThe 1950′s is a decade that everybody loves and it keeps coming back in style. Nowadays girls would kill for a 1950′s dress as it so vintage! Not only are the clothes coming back … but the hairstyles are also making their way into celebrity hairdressing salons! Our favourite has to be Marilyn Monroe; she is the icon of the 50’s… beautiful bouncy blonde curls with a bold red lipstick.

GET THE LOOK

  1. Curl all of your hair with curling tongs or straighteners. We recommend a thick barrel to create defined curls.
  2. Once all the hair is curled, spray the hair with hairspray and brush the curls with the Denman D82M Boar Bristle Brushes (USA).
  3. Tease the roots of the hair with the Denman D91 Dressing Out Brush (USA) to create more volume.

Beautiful Braids

Portrait of the girl with a plaitBraids really have taken over the hair world, they are great for adding texture and patterns in hairstyles as well as one large braid! With the huge success of the Disney movie Frozen, side braids is all that can be seen in children as well as adults! This beautiful braid looks tricky but once we explain how to achieve it you will want to wear it every day.

GET THE LOOK

This hairstyle is best created on wavy, messy hair, so if you need to add some curls and waves into your hair, do this first and then spray it with texturizing spray.

The hairstyle is created in two parts: The first part is the fringe braid and the second is the long side braid. We are going to start with the first part.

  1. Section the front part of your hair away from the rest of your hair. Begin with large sections of hair and braid then, taking sections of loose hair as you go along. Once you get to the other side, secure this underneath the hair with a bobby pin.

Now we will begin the second part of the hairstyle.

  1. Gather all of your hair around to one side and again begin to braid the hair in large sections, bringing loose hair into the braid. Continue this until all of your hair is in the braid and secure with an elastic.

Gently pull the braid to loosen it further and give it a bit more of a messy look.

Classic Quiff For Men

Jack Dean Matt Styling Paste can be used to add volume and hold to create a sleek, classic quiff.

  1. Work the Paste in the hands until it becomes warm and fibrous

  3. Using a firm backward action, smooth the sides flat to the head and drawing them into the nape of the neck
  4. Starting at the crown, gently work the paste into the roots and lift slightly
  5. Continue towards the front hairline increasing the level lift with each section
  6. At the front hairline pull the section slightly forwards when lifting and lay the hair gently over previous sections

Super Soft Side Curls

iStock_000027987326SmallToday’s look we are going to create is something that has been seen on celebs such as Taylor Swift, Amanda Seyfried and Miranda Kerr. The super soft side waves is a classic, the reason it works so well is that it is really romantic hairstyle so you can wear it on a date, for dinner or at the beach. It can be dressed up or dressed down but will always look amazing and it won’t let you down!

GET THE LOOK

  1. Start by curling the hair with straighteners or tongs, whichever you prefer is fine! If you find that your hair is too curly, don’t worry because you can brush it with the Denman D82M Boar Bristle (USA) which will loosen the curl but not let it go completely frizzy.
  2. Once the hair is curled, use the Denman Lime Green Pin Tail Comb (USA) to create a deep side parting at your preferred side.
  3. Bring the hair around to your preferred side and secure it with bobby pins at the nape of the neck.
  4. Finish with hairspray.

Pump Up The Volume!

Beehive Here in the Denman office we are loving the 60’s inspired looks that have been seen on runways and on the high street. From the Twiggy style makeup to the bold psychedelic prints the 60’s is very much still here! Most of all we love the big volumised bouffants and beehives…The Bigger… The Better! Beehives and Bouffants are quirky but super elegant for a night out and you can impress all your friends.

GET THE LOOK

  1. Starting at the top front of the hair, spray it with hairspray and begin to backcomb with the Denman D91 Dressing Out Brush. Continue this technique at the sides of the hair.
  2. Brush the backcombed hair back using the Denman D82 Boar Bristle Brush (Don’t worry it won’t affect your backcombed hair, you will still have the volume but it will just be smoothed and more sleek.) Pin the hair at the back of the head.
  3. Curl the rest of your hair with either straighteners, curling tongs or wands, whichever you prefer.
  4. Spray with hairspray to hold all night!

Why you should use a Boar Bristle Brush!

New D82M - rotated

We all know that we have to look after our hair and keep it in the best condition possible so that you will have glossy and shiny hair. Argan oils have become increasingly popular as they help with split ends, dry hair and frizz.

However, it is also worth noting that the body’s natural conditioner, sebum, is spread by using boar bristle brushes. It will not detangle your hair but it will clean and condition your hair. A boar bristle brush will also massage your scalp and seal the cuticles of your hair so that each hair appears glossy.

The Benefits of using a Boar Bristle Brush:

  1. Removes Dirt – The bristles are packed together closely removing dirt and dandruff from your hair. The smooth bristles will not tear your hair or damage the follicles.
  2. Distribute Oils – If you have dry hair, the bristles will help distribute your hairs natural oils.
  3. Reduce Excess Oils – If you have greasy hair, the bristles will help reduce excess oils by lifting it away from your hair.
  4. Stimulate Your Scalp for Hair Growth – The brush will also give your scalp a great massage which will stimulate the blood flow and increase the flow of needed nutrients to the hair follicles.

The Denman D82 Boar Bristle brush is available from the Denman Online store in 3 different sizes: small, medium and large.

Heading To Uni This Month?

That time has finally come, no longer will you be putting on your school uniform and knowing which teacher is your favourite! It will feel like your first day of school again, but just in a different environment. University for some people is a huge step, some venture into another country and leave home for the first time, whereas others stay at home, but either way you will LOVE IT!!

University is the perfect time to go wild and experiment with new hairstyles and colours! It doesn’t have to be bright pink or green, it could be darker brown or even red! If you’re really not sure about a colour, why not try a semi-permanent hair colour, as this will wash out if you don’t like it! 

Talking about bright colours… the Denman D6 Be-Bop Bright brushes are a total life saver! They are super small, perfect for detangling hair in the shower and they give a great head massage!
