The internet is a lie. Right now I’m actually standing in Ikea wishing I was anywhere but here so I’m just reposting this video from a year ago so I have something calming to look at. 😬

One: this is just a video of a hairstylist (🙋) who can never stop touching hair. Two: another French pin video. (For those of you just tuning in, you can get this pin in one of my limited edition holiday gift sets on and in target stores). BEE TEE DUBS: this wave tutorial is a few posts back. 🖤🌊 #KEHfrenchpin

SLIDESHOW! 📽 Did you guys see the 3 cute holiday accessory hairstyles I created for @target’s website? I’ll be posting the other two (along with their how-to videos if you swipe! 👈🏻🖤👉🏾) I’ll put a link to the story in my bio 🎯 I’M SO EXCITED FOR HOLIDAY HAIR. Also can we just talk about these ✨❄️✨ accessories from @jenniferbehr & @leletny!? Ughhh. Too much perfection. BTW: sorry for the funky lighting in this video. It was ⛅️🌦☀️⛅️ out that day. 😬🤷‍♀️

A special real-time vid for those of you asking me to see that "thing I do" after I curl a section of hair, a little slower 🐌 if this caption makes no sense to you, peep the last post. ☺️🖤 for more about that iron, what products I used and other random facts go back a post. 👉🏼

OKAY OKAY. Styling the lob wins every time. 😂💇🏻‍♀️💇🏾‍♀️💇🏼‍♀️💇🏿‍♀️ I’m not going to launch into a million steps in this caption, so watch the videos and HMU in the comments if you have additional questions. 🤷‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙎‍♀️ The slideshow gives you all the steps, the two products from my “Essentials for More Volume” holiday gift set & curling iron I used (I showed 2 sizes at the end because you can use either. The smaller gives you tighter waves, the larger makes it a little more relaxed). And, YES this same technique can be used on longer hair, shorter hair, thicker hair, thinner hair and so can the Thickening Spray! 🖤 GOOD LUCK MY KWEENZ 👑 ps: forgot to mention the size of the iron I used in this was 1 1/4”. It’s by hot tools. But you can use 1” if you want your waves a little extra wavy 🌊🧜🏻‍♀️
Openly crazy.👋🏼 Thank you to The @coveteur @katiejaynebecker & @tristankallas for coming to hang out w me at #kristinesshair HQ. This interview was a lot of fun and so different than most. Go read about how @laurenconrad often reminds me of how scared I used to be, find out who my first celebrity client was and peep all the sparkly things in my office. {clickable link in my profile}

If you know me, you know I love putting a headband on backwards. 🤷‍♀️ Just do. Luckily I got to borrow the prettiest head of hair from the most glamorous of them all, @marianna_hewitt ✨ this headband is from @laurenconrad’s runway collection at Kohls. It comes with a thin velvet ribbon so it can go on the right way, but I chopped that off and pinned this in backwards because I’m a savage. Shout out to these two boss kweenz tho. 👯‍♀️🖤

So we did a lil poll a couple of hours ago on my IG stories. I asked if you wanted to see a tutorial on Vintage Waves or another French pin look. Vintage Waves won, but like... you didn't really think I was just going to do one, right? 🙅 Decided to shoot both.

VINTAGE WAVES. Ok, I understand it's a little tough to see what's happening with the curls. We did our best on a quick timeline as the light was going down. But... the most important things you need to know are:
1️⃣ Always prep the hair with KEH Thickening Spray, no matter how thick or thin your hair is. Then roughly dry it on low so you're not using a hot tool on damp hair.
2️⃣ When doing vintage inspired waves, curl EVERY SINGLE THING forward and in the exact same direction. That's how you get a pattern.
3️⃣ Find a brush or comb that's not going to rip your hair out. I like a detangling brush or something with bristles that bend a little. You have to brush a lot. Don't use something that will cause damage.
4️⃣ The 🔑 to soft waves is to keep brushing until the pattern shows up, then spray it in place, then maybe brush again and spray again. It takes a little time. Be patient. I obviously use KEH Signature Finishing Hairspray. This is exactly what I made it for. It's a dry hairspray so you can brush it out.
BONUS 💕, in the last slide I'll show you another quick way I like to use my French pin from my Perfect Waves Holiday gift set. It's so comfortable. If you feel like it might slip you can add one more bobbypin but if you get it in there right, it will stay in place, no problem. 💁
GOOD LUCK. Also, next time I promise to face her more toward camera and I'll shoot it for square format. I didn't know you HAD to do square videos for the slideshow feature until now. UGHHH. Lame. 😬

For any of you trying to figure out how to use the pin, here’s a slower video on longer hair. (I’ll do another shorter hair ASAP but it’s the same method). The trick is to “hook” the pin. Remember how you used a pencil in school to hold your bun? (Maybe that was just me 🤔) it’s a lot like that. You should be able to see how it’s done here. 🖤 meanwhile all I can see is that piece of white fuzz on my arm 😒🙄😂 UPDATE. Forgot to mention... Emily’s hair was waved with a 1 1/4” iron, then we sprayed texture spray at the top and beach wave spray from middle to ends (both come in the box with the pin) #kristinesshair #KEHfrenchpin

Back at it more holiday looks on @marianna_hewitt 👸🏻This time with a super chic ponytail, tied off with a small clear elastic, then topped off with 1/4” velvet ribbon. I wrapped the ribbon around like a choker, tied it in back, then put it over the clear elastic on the ponytail and tied my 🎀. The cool thing about this look is you get 2 accessories in 1 and it’s insanely cheap. And no, it doesn’t choke you or annoy your neck. Happy Holidays, party people.🖤

Having a quick “holy sh*t” moment right now 🙊 Just found out that the KEH Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray is nominated for a #R29BIA (aka: a @refinery29 Beauty Innovator Award). The reason I’m freaking out is because last year I was a judge and got to be on the other side of things. It was so cool to try every single product that was nominated and then speak passionately about the ones I thought were game-changers in each category. This year we are actually UP for one and I’m low key dying. 🧜‍♀️🎉 I respect these awards so much because I know first-hand how they’re done and how thoroughly they research every product. Even just being nominated is an EPIC WIN in my mind. Thank you REFINERY & thank you kweenz for using it! 🙌🏾🙌🏽🙌🏿🙌🏼🙌🏻 #refinery29 #beautyinnovatorawards (clickable link to the awards is up in my profile)

Ohhhhh. Now I see what portrait mode is good for. 👸🏼✂️ Last week we travelled 3 years back in time and returned to the chop that kicked off my bob & lob obsession on my original kween. #ClearTheShoulders

One of my favorite uses for the French pin in the “Perfect Waves” gift set is to pin your hair in a low bun before bed. It preserves your waves and doesn’t crease your hair the way a rubber band or clip can. The pin has a bend to it, so it hugs your head and feels comfortable overnight. Your hair probably has to be about shoulder length (like Nora’s above) or longer to hold. 💤 🛏👑🖤 UPDATE: there's a newer real-time version of this a few posts forward. #KEHfrenchpin

Since the launch of KEH this past January, you’ve asked for one thing more than any other— travel size. We’ve been working hard to get them finished for the holidays they are FINALLY here. 🖤 I created 6 different gift sets so there is something for everyone on your list and each set costs between $10-14. This one comes with a Beach Wave Spray, a Working Texture Spray & a French hair pin (which I will be showing you how to use in some upcoming tutorials). If you want to see the rest of the sets, stay tuned to my stories or go peep!! 🤗 Thank you for letting me know what you wanted. I hope you like them! 🖤👑🖤 (I just added a clickable link to see all the gift sets in my profile up top!)

I’m used to crown moulding, built-in shelves and hella charm, so this whole modern loft situation is a new world for me. {ICYMI, peep my studio/office makeover with @highfashionhome on @mydomaine and a clickable link to it is in my profile.} 📷 by @monicawangphoto
