After the Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole Paul & Joe Post, I was emailed a few times asking what styling products and tools I use to straighten my hair.

Here are the products I use:

The Orange wood or Luxor Citrus Nylon and porcupine boar bristle 4 1/2" diameter jumbo brush.

I learned how to do my hair while I was on tour with Cirque du Soleil; before that, I would go to the salon two to three times a week for a blow dry.

This jumbo size brush is the best styling brush I've ever used; grabs onto the hair, giving the perfect amount of pull, without causing breakage, and smoothing each strand.

Besides needing good pull, the next key to a good blowout is heat and speed. 

I recommend the Parlux 3800 or the Twin Turbo 3200 Ceramic Ionic. Both Blow dryers have the perfect amount of heat and air flow power to leave the hair straight, shiny, and frizz free. This is my second Twin Turbo (the first one was with me for six or seven years before the voltage power in Korea killed it), the first one being a Ceramic Ionic. In repurchasing, I didn't realize I bought non Ceramic Ionic dryer, and, in all truth, I don't see the difference.

I've tried many flat irons, Babyliss, Solano (I think it was called Blue Sapphire), CHI (not a fan) and I was using a T3, before my friend and stylist (Melvyn) gifted me a HAI Flat Iron, and I've converted ever since.

I used to work the flat iron throughout all of my hair, but in the last few years, I just smooth out my roots at the front to prevent any frizz that may creep in throughout the day (and, it works). If I want my hair bone straight or just smooth out little bits, HAI does the job while keeping my hair soft and shiny.

I've been asked to do a post on what hair products I use when it's curly or straight, and that is coming soon. If you have any questions, please leave a comment or email me. 


  1. thanks for sharing

  2. Yay!!!!I'm really looking forward to the whole hair care post! :)
    Two questions: 1)Where can I find that brush?Is it available online? and 2)
    YOU WERE TOURING WITH CIRQUE DU SOLEIL WOMAN???As what?A makeup arist I hope, cause if you tell me you can do sommesaults on top of everything I'll stop following this blog!There's only so muh accomplishment I can handle! :P

    1. This brushes used to be sold at Sally's beauty supple, but now I have my sister buy them from a Kiosk at her local mall.

      Lol, no, I'm probably the least flexible person in the world. Just know I used to work in the telepherique (that's what we called the big top).

    2. Thank God! I can retain some self esteem! :P
      Just out of curiosity, how does one get a job at the telepherique for Cirque du Soleil? Inquiring minds want to know and what not :P

    3. You can apply online through their website. Are you thinking of running away with the circus?!

  3. You were with Cirque?! Please tell me more!

    1. Not as a performer, but I worked inside the Telepherique. What do you want to know?

    2. I thought you were a performer. But... was the Telepherique fun? :P

    3. Lol, no way, I'm probably one of the least flexible persons in the world; the closet to be a performer is having dated one :P It was a great experience, but after some time of living like a gypsy, it gets old.
