"> THE IMPORTANCE OF A GOOD FLAT IRON. | The Chic Confidential


Since chopping my hair, my haircare routines have drastically changed. And if I’m being honest, short hair is A LOT of work. I felt like when I had long hair, I didn’t have to style it as much. I could throw it up in a messy bun, and manage to still look “put together”.

With short hair, there’s no getting away with not styling it. I mean, I’ve tried. I’ve tired the messy high-top bun, and there’s usually hairs falling out from under. I’ve tried the low bun, but with the layers I have, strands are peeking out.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is, don’t cut your hair short if you think you’re going to lessen your styling time in the mornings. NOPE. That is false news people.

However, where there’s a problem, I OBVIOUSLY have a solution. That’s just how I roll 😉

Introducing the vibrating flat iron that will change your life.

K, that sounded sexual in every way possible.

I mean, it IS a vibrator…but for your hair.

Let me tell you, up until recently I was using a flat iron that I bought at a random cell phone shop about 9 years ago. I’m not even making this up… It was on sale, I was broke, and needed a flat iron, K? So, I bought that, which was great at the time. You know, 9 years ago ceramic flat irons were all the rage. Don’t judge.

Anyway, I was complaining to my hairstylist, Jessi, about how long it takes me to style my hair in the mornings, and that I just don’t seem to have the time for it. So, I asked her to show me some quick tips with my flat iron, and when I pulled out my 9-year old flat iron, she looked at my like I was from Mars. With her judgy stares (LOL), I immediately knew that my flat iron was the issue. It wasn’t my short hair.

Thankfully, Brocato sent me their latest Vibrastrait Oscillating Flat Iron. GAME CHANGER. [KEEP READING, I’M DOING A GIVEAWAY AT THE END!]

No really. This cut my styling time in half!

Ok so, I bet you’re all wondering WHY the flat iron vibrates….right?

The vibrating movement allows hair to glide through the plates easily minimizing damage. So, no tugging, no pulling. Your hair is shuffled through the plates, allowing for more even heat distribution. YES.
Here’s some other fun facts about this…vibrator.
  • It vibrates 7,500 times per minute.
  • It’s got high quality tourmaline plates.
  • It seals in moisture & provides even heat distribution.
  • It eliminates frizz.
  • It heats up super quick!
You can straighten and curl your hair in minutes. I’ve done both, and let me tell you, my hair is NOT easy to straighten. It usually takes me a full hour and a half to straighten my hair. With this flat iron, I’m done in about 30 minutes.
Life with short hair has become MUCH easier!
I’ve included a mini video below, so that you can see how I curl my hair with the flat iron. It really is effortless, and anyone can do it.

What other videos would you guys like to see on hair? Quick and easy hairstyles? Low buns? Beach waves? Updos? LET ME KNOW! I’m down to do some filming!

On another note, how was everyone’s weekend?? If you were following along on Instagram, you know that I was busy organizing my office at home. It was getting super cluttered with products everywhere. I just can’t work in a cluttered, messy area. And sure, I do a lot of my blogging right from my couch, but still, messy office = unproductivity. 

Anyway, I showed a little update on Insta-stories of how I organized. Do you guys want a blog post on this? You let me know. Because organization is like EVERYTHING for me. I just feel very much out of place if things are a mess. I can’t seem to focus in messy situations. Is anyone else like this? 

ALSO – The Chic Confidential is getting a little facelift SOOOOON. I’ve been working to get the website cleaned up and more efficient for a little while now. And I can say, we’re almost there! I can’t wait to share the new site with you guys. I think you’ll find it much easier to navigate through. It’s also more modern and cleaner. Oh, and a slightly newer logo.
