I wanted to share something with you guys seeing that many of you have started coming to site. Now I know that many people are little confused with the whole curling iron vs. curling wand dilemma. If your still not sure which model to get, visit this website. I’ve spoken to the owner. She’s been trying multiple curling wands from her work (she works in a salon, I believe) and posting reviews on your her websites. It might help some of you to see how it can be used. For others it might be a good idea to watch this video, just to make sure you’re using your wand the right way.
This is a thorough explanation of how to use a curling wand the proper. She used a heat protection tool, which is great if you don’t want to create damage. Especially for people who are using a curling wand for the first time, using a heat protection is so important just in case you make some mistake… You wouldn’t want to burn your hair.
The way she explains how to use a curling wand is simple and is great for those who are just starting out. If you have questions or comments, don’t forget to write in the comment box below! Like and subscribe!
P.S. She reminds me of my daughter. Loving her blond hair and the final look at the end of the video is very well done. Loving that volume!

There are two are two basic types of Curling Wands. Spring-type irons utilize a spring to close the clamp on the barrel, though it must be opened manually by the user. These are the most popular and least expensive irons.
Marcel types have no spring, and are opened and closed by the person’s hand pressure. Some irons have clamps to attach the hair to the barrel. Those without clamps allow the user to manually wrap each hair strand around the barrel to ensure even heating, which in turn will produce curls without creases.
Curling wands are available in a number of name brands, including Remington, Corioliss and Herstyler. At the top end of the scale is the Hot Tools Professional, the type chosen by many salon professionals. Less expensive irons can be purchased for less than $10, although some may cost more than $100.
No matter what type is selected, curling wands should be employed cautiously, and users should always first prepare their hair with a setting lotion or heat-protection solution for curling wand users. For those whose hair is permed or color-treated, styling with thermal tools should be avoided.
