West, Swift and Kardashian are all smiles at the 2015 Grammys. Word on the street was West and Swift were talking about a collaboration. When the two ladies met, it was peace on the western front. Both gals sported shoulder length cuts with long side swept bangs. Swift’s look was straight and very sleek. To achieve this look use Shampoo and conditioer two to three days before you want to straighten your hair. Use Olea E Shampoo & Conditioner. This combo is amazing for your hair. The conditioner is made with olive oil which deeply nourishes and repairs your hair. Then when you are ready to straighten your hair, use the Beyond the Beauty Hair Straightener 1.25”. What’s awesome about this straightener is that the plates that heat your hair are ceramic. These plates heat up evenly and don’t damage your hair.

Here’s what you do next: Start with dry hair–preferably hair that has some styling products in it. Use some dry shampoo before you begin if you didn’t wash that day and your hair is a little oily. Spray hair with a workable hair spray. Then take one inch to one and a half inch sections starting in the front of your face on either side.

Beyond the beauty hair straightenersClamp a 1 inch flat iron on medium to medium/high heat near the scalp and twist the flat iron 180 degrees. NOT 360. You should be twisting/turning the flat iron toward the back of your head (and away from your face). Then pull straight down at the tips. Re-clamp and twist at the base again if more lift is needed at the root. Work your way toward the back/center of the head. Follow these same steps starting at the front of the opposite side and work your way back to the center. Spray with hairspray and allow to cool. Shake curls out and separate them and follow up with finishing product. Here’s a video for more help.

They supposedly had a conversation about the whole thing to which she gave her blessing. West, “didn’t call for approval but did ask Taylor to release his single “Famous” on her Twitter account.
