Loose Waves. Beach Waves. Summer Waves. Victoria’s Secret Waves. Kim K Waves. Whatever you want to call it, waves are waves and they are particularly popular during the summer.
Truth be told- my hair has natural but lifeless waves. And in days I want to look a bit more polished, I use curling iron. I chanced upon this curler at HauteLook not too long ago. Normally retailing for $220 (or $150 at Ebay or Amazon), I purchased mine for $50+. A great deal since I don’t have any clipless curler yet.
So let’s cut to the chase. But first I had to mention that the hot pink iron and glove combo is so moi!
It heats up fast, easy to use, controls frizz, and has dual voltage (great for travel). The size of the barrel (25/32mm) gave me the beach waves I so desire. The glove is a nice addition and I highly encourage that you use it if you are new to clipless curling. The top temperature of this barrel is 450 degrees fahrenheit. Burn is no fun beauties.
Now here’s what I don’t like: it has only one control setting, super hot that is! For an expensive tool like this, I expect more features. i.e beeps when it’s ready to use, interchangeable barrel size, etc.
The proof is in the curling so here’s the before and after…
Before is my out-of-bed hair a.k.a au naturel. You can see that it’s flat on the top with frizzy demi-waves at the tips.
After is vava-vooom with more volume and clearly defined waves. To make the curls last longer, I spray and scrunch ’em with Curl Booster finishing spray.
I can’t decide what to call this hairstyle but since it’s summer and I live close to the beach, why not name it…..
