5 Hair Tools Every Woman Needs

Sure, we could live with just a brush. But let’s face it, our hair can be unruly.

Just using myself as an example – if I only got out of the shower and used 1 brush, i’d probably end up like Mia from the Princess Diaries.

In fact, that WAS meย before I discovered the magic of hair styling.

And it took me like forever to even get any hair tools because my parents never allowed me for whatever reason, to buy any (#strictparentclub).

But now as a woman, I am the proud owner of all the hair styling tools I want and need, which are only a couple. Keep reading to find out what tools every woman should own to achieve the style they want.

Tool #1: Blow Dryer

And not just any blowdryer. You should get a state of the art blowdryer which can save you the hassle of time and damaged hair. And you don’t need a salon quality hairdryer either. I currently switched to using the Featherweight Lux 2i from T3micro because of it’s ion generating technology to reduce frizzy hair. Not only that, but it’s also won two Allure awards, so you know all the best beauty and hair gurus are using it.

Tool #2: Hair Straightener

If my hair is anything like yours, it starts to get really odd in the back after you’re done blowdrying it. And by odd I mean still very curly and wavy while everything else is perfectly straight. Since it’s hard to get back there with a brush, a hair straightener comes to the rescue!

I’ve switched to using the SinglePass Luxe from T3micro after using a CHI iron and not being happy with how many times I would have to go over a strand. And I also use it to intentionally make waves and curls that sometimes a curling iron can’t give me. You know, mermaid waves!

Tool #3: Curling Iron

But a curling iron can also be a really handy tool to have around when you want a little more sass in your hair. I actually love the look of ringlets in my hair, especially when you add a cute bow! For a curling iron, check out my post on what I got at last years Nordstrom Anniversary Sale where I got the curling iron of my dreams! (Pssst…here’s a hint: it takes 15 seconds to heat up to full temperature!)

Tool #4:ย Diffuser

A diffuser is going to help out my curly hair girlfriends! It’s the perfect solution for maintaining your curls in a manageable way. I actually prefer using my diffuser because most of the time, my curls are pretty darn cute!

You just attach it to the dryer and distribute the heat evenly so that your curls are frizz free and you aren’t overheating, which is a huge no no. Dry hair is bad for anyone. Before I diffuse I like to run a little heat protectant through my hair, just in case!

Tool #5: Round Brush

But when you do blow dry your hair and you want to make it straight or have some defined waves, a round brush may be all you need. I watched my hair stylist Crystal just use a round brush to give me a gorgeous retro curl look without too much heat.

I trust the Antigravity round brush from T3micro to do the trick! It’s really easy to hold and maneuver while blowdrying. And it looks very pretty too!

This morning we celebrated by heading to our local farmers market. I hoped to get up early enough to make crepes but I am still exhausted from yesterday's #Nsale shenanigans ๐Ÿ˜†I spent all day editing, writing, and linking - don't think my crepes would have turned out very well. But I did get some cute striped tops, so all is well, right?

  • C'est la vie! If you're a francophile or just love the little charms about Paris and France, my latest blog post is for you. I've gotten so many questions about living a french inspired lifestyle in the past year, so I decided to share some great resources for you. In todays post, I am sharing 12 of my favorite french-inspired living books that I have personally read and have on the shelf (or err..in my kindle!).
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
I spent a few summers in France and what really struck me back then was the pace of life - slow, relaxed, & cultured. I was amazed on how peaceful my mind was when I sat outdoors in the countryside, sparkling water in hand, cheese on the table, and the sound of birds chirping in the trees.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
My fondest memory was having a picnic on the grounds of Versailles and thinking "I could get use to this". Not owning a palace - I wish...but really slowing down my day and enjoying the beautiful little things around me. Thus, The Petite Bijou motto was born: enjoy the little jewels of life.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
So whether you're interested in just learning how to style yourself like a french woman or if you're interested in just spending time like the french do, this post is for you! Click the link in my bio to learn more.

Are you a francophile or obsessed with french lifestyle or fashion? I'd love to know if you are! Have you read any of the books on the list?

  • โ€œIn character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicityโ€
โ€”
Life is too complicated for me to have anything else but a simple and comfortable style. All my life I have had hardships that have shaped who I am today:
.
Today I prefer simplicity
Today I like speaking softly
Today I avoid confrontation at all costs
Today I dress for myself and not anyone else
Today I take my time to enjoy the little jewels of life
.
But the most important thing I do today is show that glamour is not about how rich you are, how pretty you are, or what designer you wear. Glamour is a mindset - a mindset that this girl right here has always strived for, even when she was laying in a hospital bed for months.
โ€”
You see, if I can do just one thing with my blog and this IG account, I want to inspire you to be more than who you think you are. I want you to embrace simplicity. But most of all, I want you to be Bijou! Basically, a woman who loves style, learning, and finding the little pleasures of life.
โ€”
So tell me, are you Bijou too? #thepetitebijou

  • Can I ask you a question? What would you like me to share? Sometimes I get so discouraged by the crickets on IG and would love feedback on what things you would like to see. Do you like outfit, travel, General lifestyle? Do you use the LTK app? Do you watch IG stories? Would love to know! -
On Friday, I visited @rewardstylehq and it was one of the best and most thrilling experiences ever! When I first started blogging, my dream was to join the thousands of bloggers using ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป When I finally got accepted, I worked hard to try and differentiate myself from other bloggers. That hit me hard

What if you didnโ€™t like my modern vintage style? What if Iโ€™m doing this whole blogging thing wrong? What if this is just an expensive hobby?

These are the questions I asked myself everyday until the ladies at RS and I sat down and chatted. Click the link in my bio to see what I learned about blogging from my visit to their office! http://liketk.it/2wnZz #liketkit @liketoknow.it  #thepetitebijou

  • {BIJOU COFFEE CHAT} Secretly humming the Coffee Break French chat theme music... anyone else listen to that?
-
Can I take a second to introduce myself? Many of you know me, but today I want to share three things you might not know about me...even if they make me feel awkward! -
1. My most embarrassing moment as a kid was when I got yelled at in front of everyone for forging my momโ€™s signature ๐Ÿ˜‚ because I didnโ€™t do homework 
2. I love my job so much, but the best part of it is meeting the people who read my blog! 
3. Most people would describe as quiet, but my family would also add chatterbox, which is a nice balance, I suppose! ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
How would your friends describe you? Iโ€™d love to get to know you better Leave a comment below! Also, should we have a Bijou coffee chat event soon?
