During Christmas, we traveled to Houston to visit some family, and I noticed one of my 17-year old cousins using a curling wand..and her hair looked great! I asked her to give me a little tutorial on it but we got caught up in the holiday madness and never got around to it. I had been searching for a good wand ever since and noticed that the Remington Pearl Curling Wand made InStyle Editor’s Pick for 2011 and the price was pretty nice.
Here is some info about it: Curl your hair with less frizz and more shine using the T-Studio ultimate ceramic with real pearl for the smoothest salon finish ever! Professional styling wand features 15X more ceramic and 8X smoother glide. 1″ to 1/2″ styling wand creates professional tight & loose curls. Includes heat-resistant glove to easy styling. 410F salon high heat, automatic shutoff, precise digital controls. 4 year warranty. PETA approved. Colour Safe. Paraben, PABA & salt free. 100% guaranteed.
I ordered mine from Amazon at $29.97 for the one and half-inch wand. It got here in 3 days…love Amazon! I started playing with it after watching a few tutorials on YouTube, this one was helpful:
I followed the instructions and put the temperature on 410, it warms up in 30 seconds! Slipped my hand into the glove and started curling. It took me 20 minutes to get all my hair done…not bad. I had to get used to the glove though…and I did get a burn on my elbow (I really don’t know how that happened) but it was well worth it. I know that my second use will be better = less burns and less time!
I really like this wand because its light, quick, easy to use, gets really hot and is pink! I’ve tried getting beachy waves before but it never looked right…I think I finally found my secret weapon 🙂
Here is a look at my hair.
I curled each strand of hair for about 15-20 seconds and I did large sections…my curls lost some oomph by the end of the day although I didn’t put any product in it whatsoever. I’m going to try tighter curls and add product next time to see how it looks. I give this product a 4.5 out of 5. Great purchase!
