[VS SASSOON] NEW HAIR STYLING PRODUCT REVIEWS + COLLABORATION WITH WE ARE KINDRED FASHION LABEL FOR MBFWA 16' CHITCHAT!


HAPPY WEEKENDS EVERYONE! 

This is a packed fun-filled post dedicated to VS Sassoon. I look to reveal to you all of their two new product hair launches (that were recently used at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 16' Show) - along with sharing their recent collaboration with fashion label We Are Kindred for MBFWA 16'...

Happy reading - xoxo


VS SASSOON DIAMOND WAVES 

VS Sassoon launched their Diamond Waves in October late last year. It features a spiral barrelled waver that looks to help you create glamour hollywood style waves. (Loose waves are so sophisticated and glamorous looking, why not look to try it yourself at home). If you've ever wondered on how to achieve the lovely waves, you can now do so by checking out the Diamond Waves hair styler by VS Sassoon. It's designed with large spiral barrels that way you can easily follow the waves and wrap the hair onto it as you go. It's also perfect for styling large sections of hair. 

The hair styler is equipped with a breakthrough Diamond Radiance Technology which means that your waves stay and feel smoother than ever, hence lasting longer. The plate finish is 50% smoother and 20% harder than standard ceramic, therefore providing the long lasting waves for your hair. 

FASHION APPROACH 

Simply use on a lower heat and then brush through for a relaxed Boho-Soho take. You can also choose to pull up your hair up into a pony waved tail or leave down as casual looking waves. 

THE DIAMOND WAVES FEATURES 

When you purchase the Diamond Waves spiralling curling wand, you also get included a heat mat and protective glove. The product comes in a spiral barrel which designed to really help you to guide your hair along it. The spiral shape is what essentially gives you gorgeous looking waves and you can style as desired for large or big waves. As previously mentioned, it comes with the Diamond Radiance Technology, which means that your waves turn out smoother and last long. 

As for the heat settings, there are five options that range from 150 to 210 degree Celsius which means you can adjust as required to suit your hair requirements. Personally, I find that the higher the heat setting, the longer the hair will last during the day. 

Also, the styler comes with a built in stand to prevent it from rolling over so it's definitely helpful if you're going to keep this sitting on the table or so. Next, you get included a heat protective glove that is heat resistant for that extra protection from the heat. (Things could certainly heat up!) 

TIPS ON HOW GET THE BEST RESULTS
  • Before you start, ensure your hair is 100% dry. 
  • Ensure your hair is brushed throughout, de-tangling out any knots. 
  • Ensure you section your hair. 
  • Make sure you set the temperature to the highest heat setting to ensure a tighter curl is created. 
  • Wrap the hair around the barrel and hold this for approx. 5 seconds. 
  • Release the hair and don't touch it until the whole head is done. 
  • Get a soft bristle brush and brush out the curls to create glamoour style waves. 
  • Use a hair spray to set the curls in. 

OVERALL THOUGHTS

The Diamond Waves is certainly an ideal spiral curling wand to use if you're wanting to achieve smooth and long-lasting hollywood glamour style waves. You don't need a special occasion to whip out this hair styler, if you're feeling like rocking waves for the day, it's worth checking out to develop the skills you thought you never had!

  • RRP $59.95
  • Comes with a 3 year warranty, 
  • Stockists: 1800 650 263.

VS SASSOON 3Q HIGH PERFORMANCE DRYER 2200 WATTS


Wow..this is probably the most high performing hair dryer I have used to date. Featuring VS Sassoon's 3Q Hair dryer that helps to keep your hair healthy all way through. (It doesn't dry out the hair or damage it in any particular way...and I'll tell you why). 

The Hair Dryer is designed with a brushless motor that generates fewer got spots than a standard dryer, meaning that in the long term it protects your hair and does not damage it in any way. Additionally, the 3Q Hair Dryer by VS Sassoon also dries the hair by 70% faster than a standard hair dryer projecting less heat time on the hair. Personally, I need a dryer that can do this for my hair is quite long, and the 3Q Hair Dryer by VS Sassoon certainly lives up to its expectations. I would definitely highly recommend this product if you're wanting a new hair dryer that does the job quickly. 

OTHER BENEFITS
  • It's a quick hair dryer that looks to dry your hair 70% faster. This is because of the Smart Tech brushless 2200W motor with airspeed (150 km/h for quick less damaging hair) 
  • There's 40% less noise which means it's not too loud! There's a light and quiet operation which is amazing if your current hair dryer is amazingly loud. You will get a smooth and softer sound from using this hair dryer. 
  • The quality feels durable and of high quality. The brushless motor uses magnets and electronics to drive the motor, which extends the life of the dryer by 10x.
  • The hair dryer is super lightweight and is the perfect weight of only 480 grams. 
  • Also, the hair dryer uses ceramic technology which enables hair to more easily and absorb hear that does not damage the hair at all. 
  • Comes with 6 control settings - 3 being heat and 3 speed settings. So there's lots of variety there for you to personalise it for your hair type. 
  • I also noticed there was a True Cold Setting which is perfect if you don't want to use the heat selection. 
  • Also included is a Concentrator and Diffuser. 

TIPS IN GETTING THE BEST RESULTS 
  • Use a concentrator for super straight hair. 
  • For thick hair ensure you put it onto the highest heat and speed. 
  • For thin hair, put it on the lowest heat and speed. 

OVERALL THOUGHTS 

I love how lightweight and strong this hair dryer is. It's unbelievably fast when it comes to drying my hair (considering that my lengths are quite long) so definitely ideal for those with long hair. There's 40% less noise which means the noise reduction of blow drying the hair is significantly reduced. Most importantly. the hair dryer has up 10x longer life as it uses a Smart Tech Brushless 2200W motor with airspeed (which additionally leaves you with healthy looking hair). In case you were wondering what the 3Q stands for? It's Quick, Quiet and Quality.
