How to curl your hair with a curling wand

How to curl your hair with a curling wand (how-to video) / jones design company

I’ve recently added a new tool to my beauty regimen and like it so much I made you a video for how to use it.

This is becoming like a mini series – first I did a video about how to curl your hair to get loose waves, then came a video about my 5 minute makeup routine and last time I showed you how to do your hair in a messy side bun.  I like these simple beauty + hair videos!

Today, it’s all about how to curl your hair with a curling wand.

A few notes:

  • Did you see my cutie No. 3 come press his nose against the door about halfway in? My kids think I’m the strangest mom, I’m sure, recording myself curling my hair in my office.
  • Make sure you curl your hair away from your face. That’s the key.
  • Sometimes it helps to use a curling iron to style the front hair/bangs.

Products used:

Kerastase Thermal Spray
Hot Tools Curling Wand
Redkin Volumizing Powder

My daily bible reading routine

I haven’t been great at opening my bible these past few years. I’ll just put that out there from the start. The reasons are legit – my kids wake earlier than I do, I’m just so exhausted by the end of the day, I’m not part of a formal bible study so I don’t know […]

How To Create A Gallery Wall

Audrey’s room has been in it’s incomplete state for well over a year. This seems to be a theme in my life – this starting and not finishing projects around the house – and I’m determined to wrap a few up.  I’ve been collecting art for her room and knew a gallery wall was in order. […]

fun freebie / fruit note cards

While cleaning off some files in my computer, I came across these fruit note cards. I designed them months ago – probably more like a year ago – and they sat there in a hidden file, forgotten. Poor cute little fruit note cards. So yesterday I finished them up, formatted the pdf file and today they […]

2015 Summer Reading List / jones design company

summer reading list 2015

Each summer, it seems, I re-acquaint myself with my love of a good novel. As hard as I try to pick up a book in the Christian living genre (you know, those self-help-ish, but not self-help types), I just can’t get through them. Fiction novels have my heart. Over the past several weeks, I’ve devoured […]

it’s a miracle … progress on the kids’ bathroom

Friends. You may remember that I started a mini-makeover on the kids’ bathroom last spring. And then it stalled. For a year. Actually, a little over. But who’s counting. Well you’ll be happy to know that over the past two weekends we’ve made progress. Hallelujah! The funny thing is that it really is not a […]

what I bought at the nordstrom anniversary sale

Every summer when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog came out, my sisters and I would spend hours looking at all the clothes, circling what we hoped for. Then on day-one, my mom and us girls met our aunt, grandma and cousins for a day of chaotic shopping for a few back to school things. Shoes, stretch […]

things I've learned this summer / jones design company

things I’ve learned this summer (so far)

My friends Myquillyn and Emily (and their dad) host a monthly podcast covering all sorts of themed topics. Their most recent, and the one I listened to yesterday, was titled What Only Summer Can Teach Me. They talk about the things they have learned this summer and I was so inspired, I decided to join the […]

Q+A / ask away

I like to do this once a year-ish … a few days of Q+A. I chat at you post after post and sometimes it’s fun to switch things up and hear what you want to talk about. Personal, random, decorating, business – any of it – I want to know what you’re curious about. I wish we could […]

Covered Journal / a simple diy to do with kids

Covered Journal / a simple diy with Audrey

My go-to when my kids have nothing to do is to suggest crafts. This very simple covered journal was one such attempt to occupy a certain 5 year old who needed a productive activity (and probably some one-on-one mom time, too). Audrey is all about having her own notebook to write or draw in, so even […]

How to know if blogging is right for you

How to know if blogging is right for you I met a new friend over the 4th of July weekend. She is a friend of a friend who graduated from the same college, just had her third little boy and calls herself a wanna-be blogger. We chatted for a bit, in the bright, beautiful sun, with […]

the dinner solution that has changed my life (for real)

I’ve tried it all. Planning dinner for the week. Planning dinner for the whole month. Eating the same meal on the same day each week.  A regular rotation of eating out at one of the three restaurants in our town.  Resorting to quesadillas because that’s the best I could do. Dinner is just not my thing. It’s not the […]

The playroom in Better Homes + Gardens Magazine

In December 2012, a team from Better Homes + Gardens came to our house to take pictures. It was beyond exciting. They shot both the office (featured in the September 2013 issue) and the kids’ playroom. We weren’t sure when they would publish the playroom, but it turns out, it made it into the June […]
