Le style n'est pas une taille mais une attitude

VOLUM24 BY CALOR TESTING

 

Huge hair trend for a few months now : the volume.

Volume on the side for a more rock’n’roll hairstyle, volume on the back of the head for a glamorous style, or simply to fill your usual hairstyle a bit.

A few weeks ago, I got the new Calor hair appliance : Volum24.

Why Volum24 ?

Simply because this appliance promises you a 24h lasting volume.

I tried it and I even posted a picture of me right after waking up here on Instagram and a lot of you were surprised by my hairdo (I was surprised too).

This appliance’s principle is simple thanks to a roller you apply at the root of an hair lock. It creates lift at the root and thus volume. The appliance also releases ions that will stop static electricity and make your hair shine.

Its use is simple, at first I had to practice the gesture and then it became more natural.

The roller heats up to 338°F tops, just the right temperature for the hair to take the shape you want. No need to use a serum or a protective spray.

Before I give you a little demonstration with pictures, I’m sure you all want to try this appliance already ? I have good news for you since you can try and win one of the 20 Volum’24 Respectissim by Calor from October 6 to 24 over here.

1st step : to avoid the roller’s demarcation, make sure to lift up the first lock of hair, you’ll get a more natural look.

So start on the second lock.

2nd step : pluck the roller on the lock at the root, next to the skull, for 3 seconds. You won’t burn yourself because only the roller gets hot, the appliance doesn’t.

3rd step : make a 90° rotation towards the bottom of the lock. That’s an important step to create lift.

4th step : pull the whole lock to the opposite side of your head.

The gesture is simple : pluck the lock with the roller, a 90° rotation towards the bottom and hup, pull up the lock (on the opposite side).

Repeat the operation on the locks of the zone you want to be voluminous.

I shot you very expressive before/after pictures so that you can visualise it better. After I used Volum24, I curled the rest of my hair with my straightening iron as I usually do.

CHANEL BEAUTE POP UP STORE

 

Yesterday I was lucky enough to discover the preview showing of the new Chanel nailpolish collection that will be put to sale as of today in the Chanel beauty pop-up store.

A magical place that put stars in the eyes of the all-time Chanel fanatic that I am.

Today is the Vogue Fashion Night Out at rue Saint-Honoré and Chanel is launching a limited edition nailpolish for the occasion, the “Sweet Star”. A quite magical iridescent bluish grey nailpolish ! It will only be available for sale in this ephemeral store for this occasion and a little bluish grey bird told me it’s going to be quickly sold out.

The beauty pop-up store is also an adress to go and get pampered by the brand with the CC logo : make-up lessons, manucure and nailpolish application, make-up for big occasions or just to treat yourself. This uncluttered beauty cube is modelled on the two-colored brand.

Good to know for all of you nailistas and VAO addicts out there, it’s there that you’ll find the new Chanel nailpolishes, in preview, generally 1 month before their launch.

By the way, Chanel is relaunching 3 cult red nailpolishes in limited editions (Rouge no19 – Rouge Flamboyant – Laque Rouge 71) available as of tomorrow at this adress and as of the 3rd of October in every Chanel store.

I personally fell for the Rouge Flamboyant, it reminds me of the red Gabrielle Chanel used to wear.

What about you, which one is your favorite ?

Adress of the Chanel pop-up store
382 rue Saint-Honoré
75001 Paris
tél: 01 44 50 72 67
From Monday to Saturday, from 10AM to 7PM
