I’ve been a
Until I finally found a hair wand. Then it was game over.
Let’s Talk Hair Wands
The look you achieve with a wand curl versus a standard curling iron curl is definitely slightly different. Curling irons tend to be a bit more defined, more “curly” and feel more proper. When you use the wand it’s definitely less curly and has more of a tight wave to it.
So to get the look, I sometimes would use my curling iron like a wand. Due to my hair being SO thick, this was the best way for me to get the look. I’d wrap it around the open clamped curling iron, then clamp down and hold it for a few seconds. This way I got heat all around the hair, but still used the wrap technique to get that wand
Then I was introduced to the L’Ange wand and my wand views have totally changed.
I hated them all up until now. This one gets HOT and only needs to be on your hair for 5-7 seconds max. You can see in the video at the bottom how quick it is. There are also a few options to choose from but if you have heavy, long or hard to curl hair, definitely choose the titanium (it’s a more consistent heat versus ceramic).
When choosing a collection at L’Ange, I do the Titanium Lustre since it gets a little hotter, has temperature control and auto shut off. I do the 25mm (which is just shy of an inch) and it usually gives a tighter curl, but you can always make it looser by wrapping larger sections. I personally set mine to 370 or 390 degrees, no need to go higher in my opinion! It’s only $59 too, you can shop it right here.
Tip For Shorter Hair
PS this tutorial is also how I’ve been curling my new short bob as well. I so much prefer the look of this on my bob now than the curling iron. It gives it a more effortless wavy look than a curl. The only thing I do differently than today’s tutorial on medium to longer length hair, is I ditch the very bottom layers of my hair. Pretty much from behind the ear down, I just leave straight. No one sees it, and no one will notice.
How To Curl Your Hair With A Wand
I break my hair up into small sections and pin the rest up with a clip. Taking 1 inch sections to start. I always wrap the hair with the wand pointing down. It allows you to let go of the hair and let it just fall.
I try to wrap as much as much of the hair as possible before my finger touches the wand at the end. You can use a glove (it comes with the wand) but I prefer not to. The more you can wrap, the better. That little bit left over will still be a touch straight giving a beachy look. But if you leave out too much, it’ll look undone.
