ION Hot Rollers Curl Technique: ACM Awards Special

Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott looks classic with her long, wavy
locks at last night's ACM Awards. 
Recreate her look with your own set of ION Hot Rollers!

Country singer Hillary Scott

  • Take a section one inch thick and as wide as the length of the roller you are using.
  • Pull the section of your hair straight up and spray the entire section of hair from at least 8 inches away
  • Place the roller at the end of the hair and roll, but rock back in forth while you are rolling in. It makes it easier to get an even wrap.  The ends will get a tighter wrap around the roller, resulting in more curl.
  • Remember, your rollers stay heated up to four minutes. Once you get the last roller in, take the first roller out. 
  • For more curl, let rollers stay in your hair for ten minutes after you put the last roller in. 
  • Complete this style with your favorite hairspray, Fix2, for long-lasting hold.

Calista Tools ION Hot Rollers deliver ultra-curl. Be prepared to turn heads ;-)

Detachable Blowout Brush Set Premier

Hey Beauty Queens!

A lot of women blow dry their hair with a round brush, but it takes so much time and effort to blowout each section, one at a time. Calista Tools has found, once again, a time saving solution with less effort on your part. We are excited to share with you our newest addition to the line, the Detachable Blowout Brush Set! This set of brushes will change the way you do your hair forever because they have a unique feature: they detach! It comes in a stylish travel bag with one brush handle and six barrel brushes, as well as six butterfly clips. The plastic bristles on the brush barrels will help you achieve frizz free, smooth shiny hair. The best part is, the detachable brushes will give you volume and lift, even on the days you wash your hair. (Scroll down for directions)
