So how do you use a curling wand? Once the wand is fully heated, you simply take a section of hair and wrap it around the wand. Then just let go of your hair and you will be left with a professional looking curl – it really is that simple. Many products come with a finger shield to prevent you from burning yourself, and a heat proof mat to protect your surfaces. 

So now you have decided you want to purchase a curling wand, which one should you buy? One of the hottest brands right now is Babyliss curling wands. In particular, the Babyliss Pro Rebel 32mm Conical Wand is very popular. This one comes in several sizes which effect the size of the curl. Some of the size are 32 – 19mm and 25 – 13mm. The Babyliss models range in price, but start at around £26 and can go up to £50. 


Another popular curling wand is the Paul Mitchell pro curling wand  200 degrees. This one is a little more expensive, but from our research online, it has received good reviews. 

So to summarize, this guide has given you an overview of the curling wand. We talked about how they are different from other hair curling products, how you are supposed to use one, and some of the popular models that are available.
