Explore the Beauty Secrets with Hot Rollers

While fashion is changing each new day, curls are always on-trend. The perfect mix of sexy cuteness and wildness. Who does not want to have curls except curly people, of course?

There are multiple tools to make waves. The most obvious choices are curling iron and the best hot rollers. And since there are tons of information on curling iron, let’s find out what do we actually know about rollers?

The secret guide to Hot Rollers

Hot rollers don’t need a real guide. We`ve all known the basics since early childhood. Our moms used them, our grannies used them. While we receive a better quality of rollers and better hair care, the manual is still the same.

Let’s refresh memory:

Step 1. Prepare your hair. Brush it. Make sure it is dry. Meanwhile, start heating up rollers. You may also use spray or mousse for extra fixation. In this case, do it right away.

Step 2. Part hair into sections and brush it again. When the roller is heated, take a section of hair and roll it up to the skull. Use clips to fasten the roller. Now, when it is holding on its place, take another roller and repeat the procedure.

Step 3. Wait for up to 15 minutes before removing hot rollers. Now, remove rollers one by one, unfastening clips. Use the hair spray if you did not do it before, brush your hair, or just point curls into the direction you need with fingers.

Picking up Hot Rollers that suits you

There is nothing easy in picking up the best Hot Rollers from the variety offered on the market. The task is getting harder by the fact that each pack of hot rollers is different and has its benefits.

Let’s take a closer look at some of them:

● BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Roller Hairsetter was made for those who love to experiment with their hair. It goes in a set with twenty rollers of different sizes which solves the problem of the monotonous hairdo, but if you have long hair and want to see only big or small curls, you’ll need to buy another set.

● Clipless Curlers: InfinitiPro Secret Curl by Conair contains 12 silicone rollers in a set. There are no clips or pins in the pack, which makes the whole procedure easy. Toller is easy to close on each strand.

● Conair Instant Heat Travel Hot Rollers are compact and can easily fit in your carry-on bag. There are 5 rollers which heat up in 2 minutes. It comes with a long cord and super clips to hold rollers.

Things that matter

Material. Hot Rollers are made of different materials, from ceramic to wax. Depending on the material, you may receive quicker heating and long-lasting effect.

Size. It is the most important thing when it comes to picking the perfect rollers. You may be a fan of big curls, so you don’t need to buy a set of different sizes. Pick rollers you’ll use every day.

Time of heating. Modern hot rollers heat up in 2-5 minutes, depending on the model. It can be crucial for you, when you are late for work, missed your breakfast and still in pajamas.

Dry heat or Steam. Rollers with dry heat are warm to touch, as the metal inside them is heating up. Steam rollers evaporate water and moisturize hair, so the effect lasts longer. Dry rollers are faster in use.

Modern Hot Rollers don’t damage your hair. They are quick in use and safe as well. Depending on the waves you want to have, you may choose different hot rollers. The best thing is you still can combine them with a curling iron or a curling wand.

Timex Introduces Vincent Bérard

TIMEX GROUP LUXURY DIVISION INTRODUCES VINCENT BÉRARD, A COLLECTION OF SWISS MADE MECHANICAL WATCHES WITH A GREEN SOUL

Part of Timex Group since 2006 and originally based in La Chaux-de- Fonds, Vincent Bérard was a manufacturer of luxury mechanical watches who used Nature as a source of inspiration. By exploring his inspiring legacy and reinterpreting that connection with Nature with present day consciousness, Timex Group Luxury Division today announced the launch of a new collection of Swiss Made watches with a green soul.


The range consists of stylistic timepieces that deploy only mechanical Swiss Made movements, to avoid batteries, and use sustainable materials -recycled or eco-friendly- at a sustainable price. The green concept is visually emphasized by the customized forest green rotor, visible from the see- through case back, and by a green second hand present on all styles.

Interchangeable straps made from post-consumer recycled PET bottles, vintage vegetable tanned leather or Nuo© wood, a patented material made from thin wood micro laser etched sheets, underscore the brand’s commitment to innovative and eco-conscious creations.


Thanks to the co-operation with Treedom, a Benefit Corporation that supports agroforestry projects around the world, a tree will be planted for each watch sold.
“Sustainability has become a key marker of luxury status in the eyes of today’s consumers and adds emotional capital to the value of the watch. Our proposal addresses the «positive green», the modern businessman sensitive to environmental impact and in search of new brands to express his personality” said Paolo Marai, President and CEO of Timex Group Luxury Division.

Vincent Bérard watches, all featuring 10 ATM water resistance, screw-down crown and sapphire crystal, will be available in exclusive selected stores and online starting from September 2019.

Timex Group Luxury Division, based in Switzerland, currently markets Versace, Salvatore Ferragamo, Versus Versace, CT Scuderia and Teslar watches, in department stores, independent specialty retailers and mono-brand boutiques, as well as on key e-commerce outlets.

CHAMPION × “100 YEARS FOR THE TEAM”

CHAMPION® ATHLETICWEAR CELEBRATES “100 YEARS FOR THE TEAM” WITH LAUNCH OF GLOBAL CAMPAIGN

Brand partners with sports legend Magic Johnson in a quest to find unique teams around the world to share their stories

Champion®, the global athleticwear icon, is celebrating a century of teamwork with the launch of its centennial anniversary campaign – “100 Years for the Team” – that will explore what it means to be a team in 2019 from the perspective of participating teams, clubs, squads and crews across the world.

From its humble Rochester, N.Y. beginnings in 1919 as Knickerbocker Knitting Mills to its position today as one of the largest and fastest growing global athleticwear brands, Champion has always been about one thing – the team. To celebrate a century of team spirit, Champion will engage with teams small and large around the world to share their passion about teamwork and what it means to them to be a team.

Throughout the year, Champion will highlight and celebrate teams through social media, a special website, exclusive product collections, events and influencer partnerships. Select teams will even be featured in a centennial celebration video.

“This significant milestone for Champion allows us to reflect on what ‘team’ and the evolution of ‘sports’ means today to consumers around the globe,” said Jon Ram, Group President, Global Activewear, Hanesbrands Inc. “Helping people come together as teams and being innovators in the industry has been an important part of our brand’s story since the very beginning. Now is the time to look ahead and celebrate how teams today have the power to change the world for the better, and how we assist in enabling them.”

The campaign will launch with a special film that features someone who has experienced the power of the team personally – the iconic basketball legend Magic Johnson. In the film, Johnson shares his reflections and insights into what truly makes a great team.

“As part of the ‘Dream Team’, I experienced first-hand the power of people coming together to achieve great things,” said Johnson. “I’m pleased to celebrate the power of teams in Champion’s 100th anniversary campaign.”

From its inception, Champion has been a part of some of the most important moments in sports and cultural history. From designing collegiate apparel to supplying military uniforms, and dressing iconic sports teams such as the gold medal-winning 1992 U.S. Olympic Men’s Basketball “dream team,” Champion has proudly outfitted a broad range of teams over the past 100 years. Be it on the field, on the court or in the street, Champion has been embraced by teams around the world. Champion has also been at the forefront of innovation since its establishment with patented creations, such as the iconic Reverse Weave sweatshirt. In 2018 the Reverse Weave hoodie was permanently installed into the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

100 Years for the Team Campaign

Throughout the year, Champion will showcase a variety of modern-day teams while also looking back at key milestones in the brand’s rich history that have cemented the signature ‘C’ logo within sports and popular culture. The 100th anniversary campaign will feature a global digital and social media campaign, a limited-edition Century Collection, and partnerships with key influencers.

“The ‘100 Years for the Team’ campaign allows us to connect with teams throughout the world to really show what team means during our centennial anniversary, in addition to partnering with the legendary Magic Johnson to celebrate and explore his own authentic history of passion and team spirit,” said David Robertson, Director of Brand Marketing. “Whether you’re a sports team of four from Tokyo or a team of three hundred from Texas interacting in everyday life, Champion wants to find you and to share your story.”

Teams are encouraged to share their stories via social media using #Champion100 or through the Champion100.com website for the opportunity to receive limited-edition product, be featured in a centennial celebration video and spotlighted on Champion’s social media channels and website. Limited-edition product collections, events and influencer partnerships will be announced throughout 2019.
