Curling wands can be a great alternative to curling irons
November 29, 2015
If you are looking for those amazing 90’s curls or a beach wave, you have to have the right curling wand. Mastering these looks with professional precision is going to be a lot easier now with these amazing curling wands. These not only have made it easier to pick, but these are the best of the best, the ones that people rave on and on about. These are the top of the line curling wands that will set your hair in a blaze of curling glory without a lot of fuss.
Sometimes finding the right curling wand takes a lot of time, especially if you are the type that swears by using heated styling tools. Sometimes it is hard to get that bouncing curly look or the nice wave that would make your styles that much more interesting, these curling wands will put you where you need to be. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for those tight spiral curls to that bed head wave, these will cover every style.
These curling wands are really inexpensive and can work for any budget. I tend to lean more toward the multi styler for my go to wand. It really just depends on your hair and how you want to style your hair. Each one of these will heat evenly, give you a healthy shine, and they don’t leave your hair smelling weird after being on high heat. That is a big plus for anyone who curls their hair.
When it comes to finding the right items to curl your hair, the first thing you have to think about is, will it get hot enough for your hair type. You also need to think about what size curls you want, and if what you use is going to be enough to give you those curls. The last thing, is it good enough quality that will make sure that it lasts a long time. The truth is, when it comes to curling your hair, the best way to go is a wand or curling iron. It can be hard to pick out which one will work for you, so think about that while you browse these irons that I have tested.
Bed Head Curlipops
These are amazing clamp free wands. Not only are they affordable, but they come in various sizes, the most popular being the 1 inch wand. It comes with a protective glove and it has high heat, as well as rapid heat recovery.
T3 Singlepass Whirl
This wand has singlepass technology that works fast while it never burns your hair, so there isn’t any of that weird smell. It fights frizz and seals the hair cuticles to keep fighting frizz daily. It heats up fast and gives a consistent heat and has an easy to read LCD display. This one is a bit on the pricier side ranging between $200 – $250.
T-Studio Ceramic Pearl Professional Curling Wand by Remington
If you are wanting a nice glide that will never tug or rip pieces of your hair, then this is right for you. It has a ceramic barrel that actually has real pearl pieces that will give you those tight ringlets, or those nice beach waves each and every time without having to make a trip to a salon. It is very affordable being only $25.
Sarah Potempa BeachWaver
Having those luxurious waves are only a turn, and then a twist away. The BeachWaver was created by the celebrity hair stylist, Sarah Potempa. It rotates in two different directions which will create those beautiful celebrity waves. It has a 30 minute automatic shut-off but it costs about $200.
Sultra The Bombshell
If you are wanting those bombshell curls, then you will get it from this amazing curling wand from Sultra. It is made with ThermaTru Ceramic Technology and it will not only protect, but mend any damaged hair when you use it. It comes with a safety glove, in pink of course.
The Micro Wand by Cloud Nine
This a wand that will never let you go wrong when it comes to curling your hair. They can create tight super curls to those soft sensual curls that will work with any style. It is small enough that you can literally take it with you, it heats quickly, and it is perfect for all hair types.
T3 Whirl Styler
The Whirl Styler has a cone shaped barrel which will let you wrap your hair around the barrel for the type of curl that you want. I noticed that this one tends to give you a softer look than the over the top poofy type curl. It also tends to give you a more shiny type of finish for your curls due to the ionic energy in the barrel. This is great for those night out looks.
Nicky Clarke Multi Styler
If you are really big on experimenting when it comes to curls, then this is the wand for you. The one thing I fell in love with is that this one comes with interchangeable barrels that will give you various curl styles. This lets you go from tight curls to the loose beach waves that are so popular right now. The curls and waves seem to last all day, which for me is a big plus, because its hard to maintain curls with super long hair. To get amazing waves, you can use a small barrel and just randomly curl pieces of your hair and shake it out to give you beach locks.
The Bombshell Rod Curling Iron by Sultra
If you are one of those people who say, “my hair just won’t curl”, you haven’t tried the Bombshell. This wand is amazing. My hair is hard to curl because it is so long, and the curls never last. This wand allowed me to have curls that lasted all day and it took a lot of time off of my styling. It maintains the temperature, and even though its a bit expensive, its worth it.
Conair Instant Heat ¾ inch Curling Iron
This curling iron is beyond great. It gives you those cute curls that you can pin back and make amazing styles with. It only takes around a minute to heat up and it maintains the heat. Which for me is a big thing. I loved the curls that it gave me, and they stayed most of the day.
Infiniti by Conair Professional Nano Tou-rmaline Ceramic Curling Iron
This is one curling iron that I plan to keep in my arsenal of hair styling products. It curls my long hair without any issue, and it has a really comfortable grip. The tip doesn’t even heat up like others, so I haven’t burned my fingertips. It heats up evenly and it was really inexpensive. I spent just around $25 for this curling iron and its great. What really sold me on this curling iron was that you can set the temperature for the iron based on the actual temperature of where you are going to be, such as outside. This keeps the curls longer and allows you to have that great style all day.
These are the best ways to curl your hair that I have found. It’s hard to keep my hair curled, since it is really long and thick. These models are great for anyone to use.
Conair YOU Curl XL Curling Iron Review
November 29, 2015
Everyone knows that hair is considered the crowing glory, and if you want to look glamorous without having to spend that hefty price, then it is time to grab the Conair YOU curling XL wand. This amazing styling wand can give you those amazing loose curls that are smooth and silky. It is really safe to say that this curling wand is literally an instant hair stylist on its own. If you plan on buying a new styling tool, than you should certainly consider the YOU XL. There is nothing better than having the right tool that can give you waves or spirals that make you feel like a superstar.
The newest model will give you great curls without having all the frizz or crimps from a handle. The barrel does it all by creating the best curls that you want. The cone shaped barrel is clamp free. You can get a variety of curls just by how you wrap your hair around the barrel. If you want loose waves, wrap wide sections of hair around the wand, tighter curls wrap smaller sections closer together. It is all on how you want it.
There are plenty of great features that make this curling wands the best for the money. The advanced tourmaline ceramic technology will keep your hair from frizzing even after it has been styled for hours, and the design helps to distribute the heat evenly, plus there isn’t a way for hair to get snagged since there isn’t any type of clamp. The best part is the short wait time for heating. It takes about 30 seconds to hit that 400° F mark. If you are unsure of how hot that it is, there is a LED indicator that will show the 4 levels of heat, and it will display the 30 second instant heat.
What I find great is that it comes with a limited 5 year warranty, so if there is a manufacture issue, you can get a new one replaced with no issues and no hassles. Even when your curling wand isn’t being used, the even temperature will stay the same. What I find to be the best part of the whole curling wand is the automatic shut off. If you haven’t used your wand in 5 minutes, it will begin to cool itself down and shut off. It’s a great feature for forgetful people. On to the Pro’s and Con’s.
- Quick heat up time
- Easy to use
- Frizz free

The Conair YOU Curl XL, is great if you have a need to have various curls. The easy styling and the way that the curls hold up without hairspray, is a perfect addition and at a great price. Unlike the other higher priced professional tools, this curling wand does all that and more.
