Welcome back to Monday beauty babes! We had a busy, yet productive weekend thanks to all the beautiful weather. I am so happy that it’s finally starting to feel like spring! If you missed my post last week about the new John Frieda Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ products from Walmart I’ll give you a little crash course to catch you up… Now that nice weather is finally here, it seems I’m busier than ever. The kids have school on the week days and on the weekends we try to catch up on yard work, spring cleaning and of course, family time. So it goes without saying that I have very little extra time to pamper myself, which I am OK with now that I have found a system that has been working great for me.
Last time I left off in my other post, I was going to show you the results of my instantly lightened hair from using the new John Frieda Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ In-Shower Treatment, so here you go:
These results are after using the Visibly Brighter™ Treatment one time and you can see it’s added a subtle sun kissed glow to my hair which is exactly what I wanted! I have been maintaining my new fresh color by using the Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ Subtle Lightening Shampoo and Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ Subtle Lightening Conditioner with every shower. Using them daily, helps to visibly boost the brightness of my lightened color, which couldn’t be any easier for me especially since I can find them at my local Walmart!
Check out my previous post for the full details of these products!
Now that my hair is looking revived and has some multi dimensional color to it, I thought it would be fun to show you a quick hairstyle that enhances my sun kissed tones. I first saw this tutorial on Refinery29 by its creator Nicci Welsh and she calls them “scandi waves.” It took a little bit of getting used to the motions, but once I got the hang of it I was hooked! I got such easy going, beach-y waves that I was kind of shocked. Plus they lasted all day, which us fine haired girls know that in and of itself is a big feat.

How to get Easy Flat Iron Waves:
- Start out with clean blow dried (or air dried) hair with some sort of styling or heat product applied, I love the John Frieda Frizz Ease Heat Defeat Protective Spray.
- Section off the top part of hair and work with the bottom half first
- Take a section of hair, smaller will create more defined waves and a bigger section will result in looser waves.
- Make a curved bend in the hair, by holding with one hand
- Clamp the iron along the bent part of the hair in quick pulsing movements
- Keep bending and clamping as you move down the hair. Make sure to go in the opposite direction from the previous bend. (It should resemble an S shape.)
- When you are done all of your hair, let it cool a minute before any further styling.
Here is a short video tutorial to give you a better idea of the process:
These waves will literally last me all day and even into the next day. The flat iron just seems to hold curls/waves better in general for me as opposed to standard curling irons. When I do my hair like this I prefer to wear it down, but even styling it with a clip or half-up is super cute. I love that it gives me a relaxed/easy going look, but still put together and polished.
See how my lightened tones are shining in all their glory? This easy wave technique really showcases highlights in a subtle yet playful way. I am so happy with the way my hair looks since I have been using the new John Frieda Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ products. I save time, money, and my hair color is looking so much better than it was before. (All for a fraction of the price I usually spend at a salon.) All of these products should be available at your local Walmart, but if you are having trouble finding them in store, you can always get them online!
