My hair has always been in layers, ever since the Friends' "Rachel Layer Days" (around the 90's). I've always been very adventurous with layers, I have tried 3 inches of hair at the crown area while the rest of my hair falls way below my shoulders.
As most hair stylist would say, layers won't be appreciated unless you blowdry it or curl it! It's true, especially on me! My friends who have seen me for the past month would know that I had my hair cut short (just a bit below the shoulders) considering I've had my long locks for the past "blogging years"!
Do you want to know why?
It wasn't depression or heartbreak *promise* :P I went to my favorite Korean stylist "Water" at Tony & Jackey salon and one look at my hair she had this disapproving look and said: "Ahhh, your hair, the ends! Soooo soooo dry!". Girl! That hurts! *in pain laughter*
I asked her what needs to be done, she asked me to go through hair treatment, I told her I religiously treat my hair with "at home"hair care treatment (you guys would believe me with the number of Hair Product Reviews I've done.)
She told me she'll cut it a bit shorter than I requested, of course I said "yes", she's the expert anyways!
It was cut in "full layers" and on the next day after my hair wash. For the first time, I do not appreciate the cut done by my favorite stylist! It has been days that I've been struggling to like my 'do until I styled it by using curling iron to create "volume".
I'm dead, do I need to use heat on a daily basis for my hair to look good?
Then I remembered my dear blogger friend Kim, who's also a hairstylist did Tara's hair on her Sunlife photoshoot with the red and white gadget called Caruso.
And Tara looked like this...

I googled Caruso and researched about the product, which by the way, is not available locally! It was great timing though as my aunt in the US asked me if I needed something from the US and I need this!!!
I read through various sites and saw different versions of Caruso. My choices was trimmed down to 2...
The Caruso 30 Molecular ION Steam Rollers
And the Caruso Professional Molecular Steam Hairsetter
with 30 Rollers
I wanted to save my hair, I tweeted about it and Sophie messaged me telling me she bought extras because she purchased a set for herself and it was in huge box so she might as well purchase more! That means she has limited sets left. I bought a set from Sophie because waiting for shipping is "hellish" for me! She's heaven sent! *lol*
It wasn't a hard decision anymore as the ONLY set that has Worldwide Voltage is the Caruso Professional Molecular Steam Hairsetter which Sophie has! I purchased from her right away and played with it once I received it!
30 different roller sizes
6 petite, 6 small, 6 medium, 6 large, 6 jumbo
At this point, I do wish my hair is longer
So I can play with all the roller sizes!
With a combination of Small and Medium sized rollers
I came up with this!

Now I appreciate my layers! I will be reviewing about the Caruso Heating Rollers soon! For now, it's a Eureka Moment for me! Obviously, the downside is, its not available locally! Nevertheless, I own one and I don't have to worry on damaging my hair on a daily basis!
Do you have layers?
How do you style your hair?
