Magic Wand


So I finally bought a curling wand. I definitely love it and the curls it creates; but I'm also slightly terrified of the thing. I'm convinced these little heat sticks are also secretly weapons of mass destruction (I mean it comes with a protective glove...) this bad boy gets HOT (around 400 degrees)! Aside from the fear of burning my hand off; this curling wand has completely changed the way I curl my hair and the look I get. What I really love is how I can start the morning with a tighter curl and by the time it falls I'm left with that always desirable beachy wave (for it to fall this way I don't usually use hairspray, but that's just my hair).  A win-win all around. 

The Remington wand I purchased is found at Target. Since I wasn't sure how I'd like the wand I didn't opt for one that was high-end. Surprisingly this wand works just as well as other higher-end wands I've seen friends with.

*I will note after some questions that I do not use the glove (it makes it challenging to grab pieces of hair to wrap). While this iron does get super hot and I have to be very careful; it does not reach the temperature of many other wands I've tried. It gives a great curl without being as scary as some of the other wands. The black tip on the end is also very helpful because it doesn't retain the same heat as the gold part which if I need to touch a part of it I can touch the tip for help wrapping hair.

  1. You have to start asking questions when curling tongs are issued with safty gloves! I'm desperate for some curling tongs that actually work! My hair struggles to hold a tight curl too, but maybe the beach curl things is cooler! I'm off to buy a pair now! Toodles!
