HOLIDAY GLAM : Faux Bun How-To for Mid Length Hair

Hair tutorials for long, thick, straight hair are easy to find. But what if your hair is mid length? Or curly? We recently treated my sister, a new mom, to a mini ‘glow and go’ session, courtesy of Conair, because we all need a little glam for the holidays. Her shoulder length curly hair was perfect for a ‘faux bun’ – here’s how we did it!
Faux Bun for Mid Length Hair | Henry Happened The Infiniti Pro by Conair is great for curly hair. My sister Susanna can easily spend 30 minutes drying her hair when she straightens it. With this nifty blow dryer the brush is built in, and it includes an Argan oil strip that automatically distributes conditioning oil while you dry. The result is less time spent drying and shinier hair!

Our ‘glow and go’ session also included a test run of the Conair true glow Sonic Cleansing Brush. (Is it just me or do these products have the world’s longest names?) Whatever it’s called, this brush is my new favorite thing. It’s waterproof so you can use it in the shower and there are different brushes for use on the face and body. Plus, it pretty much leaves your skin feeling amazing.
