Curling Wands

You probably already have an arsenal of curling irons, round brushes, hair accessories and hairdryers, but have you heard of the hair curling wand? It’s the newest hair styler to hit the beauty scene. But what’s the difference between a curling iron and a curling wand? Read on!

Curling Iron vs. Curling Wand
Each certainly has a place in your collection of hair styling products, but the main difference is the type of curl each produces. A curling iron creates Shirley Temple-esque ringlets, while a wand curling iron creates more natural-looking waves. How you use each is slightly different, too. A curling iron is used with the cord facing down, while a wand is used with the cord facing up.

What Size and Type of Curling Wand Should I Buy?
Like a curling iron, the size of the barrel equates to the size of your curl. A 1-inch curling wand is going to produce tighter waves and works well on short-to-medium length hair, while a 2-inch curling wand creates looser waves and works well on any hair length.

The best curling wand depends on your personal preference, but it’s always good to look for brands that utilize ionic technology that seals the hair’s cuticle and temperature control that protects your hair from heat damage. If you’re new to the game, you might want to try a bubble curling wand that features a ball-like pattern that guides the hair and creates even waves. Some curling wand sets will also include several different barrel types so you can create a variety of different looks, all with one device.

How Do I Use a Curling Wand?
There are some simple steps on how to use a curling wand. First, whenever you’re using hot-styling tools, it’s super important to prep your strands with heat-protecting haircare. Next, you’ll want to section your hair into smaller pieces. Position your wand carefully, then wrap a small section of hair around the wand. Wait a couple of seconds, and release. Once you’ve got the hang of it, you’ll be able to create so many different curling wand curl types just by changing up your technique.
