Fashion Blogger, Cara McLeay teams up with Mode to create a perfect pairing of function and beauty. NICHE Jr. Style Editor, Josie and Beauty Assistant, Gracie put the ‘A Fashion Love Affair XO Styling Iron’ to the test trying a sleek straight summer style. Working with a head of sun-fried hair was no challenge when paired with Matrix Oil Wonders Controlling oil. Two pumps of oil ran through the ends and body of hair to prep before the heat resulted in maximized the controlled style. With a relaxing essential oil fragrance the Amazonian Murumuru by Matrix kept even the most rebellious of hair in line.
Simple yet alluring packaging brought excitement to the office as the iron arrived. A thick cord and easy use design makes this iron a key attribute to daily prepping routines. The no-slip grip gives comfort while the titanium plates gives us impatient the ease of instant snag-free styling. While running the styling iron through hair the adjustable LCD provided constant adjustment needs throughout the process.
Transitioning from a beach to night look may be a challenge in warm summer months, but within minutes, the XO iron bridges beach hair into styled hair envy locks. Warm summer days at the office usually involve pony tails and buns, but now our office is experimenting through tutorials how to achieve McLeay perfect hair for any occasion. With us visual obsessed, the matte grey model looks extremely fashion forward on any vanity.
Whether you are attending a summer beach party or out for a formal evening, the XO iron is the perfect function meets fashion tool to add into your beauty regime.
