Nu Style, Nu Change, Nu You {NuMe Giveaway}

What is the first thing you notice on a girl?  Her eyes?  Her smile? Her hair?  For me, it is hair.  Hair can make or break it for you.  If you have a gorgeous outfit on but your hair is looking crazy, no bueno.  If you have one a gorgeous outfit and your hair is looking it’s finest, BINGO!Every morning I get to do two of my favorite things: hair and makeup.  I like getting dolled up.  I like trying new mixes of eye shadows and new hairstyles.  Some times I turn out no bueno and some times I turn out BINGO!I like the BINGO days the best.  It makes me feel better and it seems to make my day go smoother.uMe has worked with stylists for over a decade to “deliver the highest quality products for the most incredible results.”   They have changed our everyday hair styles.  They get that “frizzy and unruly hair” can put a damper on our day but they also understand hair, unlike some features we are born with, can be “transformed into the silkiest, most gorgeous styles.”  NuMe brings their products and knowledge “to all salons, stylists and individuals around the world.”  Plus, their hair care tools have up to 5 year warranty on them!  Now that says quality!

NuMe gave Hollie, Amanda, and I the wonderful opportunity to try out their products.  Talk about being a lucky group of bloggers!

NuMe sent me a 25mm Curling Wand.  A curling wand is like a curling iron without the clip.  Not having a clip keeps your hair from breaking, being tugged, and keeps your curls from having creases.  This tourmaline curling wand gave me long lasting, bouncy, frizz free curls.  It was like I had a personal hair dresser giving me a celebrity look.  I really liked the fatness of the wand.  It gave me big luscious curls rather than tight spirals.The NuMe Curling Wand uses their “signature negative ion technology to get you the lasting look you want, quickly and without the damage of conventional irons and curlers.”NuMe also sent me two hair care products: Thermal Defense and Miracle Shine. Thermal Defense is a product you use on your dry hair before using a flat iron or curling wand.  It protects your hair from heat damage and provides holding power.  It doesn’t leave your hair greasy or heavy.  Love this product!!  Miracle Shine is another weightless product that goes on dry hair.  It give hair a nice polished, glossy look while eliminating static and frizz. Check out the results on my straight hair.  The left side is nice and shiny while the right side is dull.  Also, love this product!!There is something about fixing my hair that makes me feel extra glamorous. I’m not sure if it’s because it doesn’t happen very often anymore, but I know that I love the way I feel when I take a little extra time and put myself together. I feel confident, beautiful, and ready for anything. My hair is stick straight and I usually use a flat iron on it to get rid of a little frizz and smooth it out, but every once in a while I like a little wave, the beachy, hollywood star kind! I have spent years trying to get this look with curling irons, by curling my hair with a straightening iron {I know, sounds so odd}, even hot rollers.

I had not found anything that would get that “beachy wave” look I was after. NuMe generously sent me their 25mm Curling Wand. I had never had any experience with a curling wand and was so curious as to how it worked and if it would work at all. Turns out I was pleasantly surprised and wish I had discovered this little secret long ago! The curling wand is so simple to use. All you have to do is grab a piece of hair, wind it around the wand, hold it for a few seconds, and then release. They even include a glove to wear on the curling hand to protect your skin from the heat of the wand. I was so thrilled with the look I got after using the NuMe Curling Wand. Loose, beachy waves! Oh, so hollywood! The clip free design keeps your hair from showing creases and the NuMe Curling Wand uses signature negative ion technology to get you the lasting look you want, quickly and without the damage of conventional irons and curlers. NuMe also sent a few products to use with my new curling wand; Thermal Defense {natural heat protection}, and Miracle Shine {a straight up glossy finish}. Both products are keeping my hair healthy and beautiful; I am loving them both!

Ever since I remember (high school years) I have always had straight hair, but with a slight wave to it.  I was always so envious of girls who could wash their hair and let it air dry and it would end up super straight. I even had a roommate who could put her hair up in a pony tail and hours later take it down and it was still super straight. I was so jealous. I had to spend a lot of time blow drying my hair every time that I washed it, if I wanted it straight. I was so excited when given the chance to try the Nume Couture Flat Iron. I am always looking for the perfect way to straighten my hair. I love that it is 1 1/3 inch plates so it really covers my hair when I pull it across it, I can control the temperature from 140 degrees to 410 degrees. I like it at roughly 300 degrees, not too hot but hot enough to smooth out my frizz. Just enough to get my hair looking super straight every time. I also found that my hair stayed straight not only the rest of the day but into the next day. Plus, it only takes 10 seconds to heat up. Love that! I am learning to curl and flip my hair with it too! I never knew you could curl your hair with a flat iron until now. Nume offers a great product definitely Real Mom recommended!
