Fantastic for loose waves
on 16 September 2010
The Babyliss Waving Wand has given me the perfect hair I've been trying to achieve! I didn't want the bouncy curls my curling tongs gave me, if I let it dry naturally the waves would look frizzy and uneven, and I couldn't do it well with straighteners. The Waving Wand gives lovely natural looking waves without looking "crimped".
I was apprehensive about it having no clamp, but this actually makes it much easier to use and doesn't give that annoying kink at the end of your hair. You have the freedom to wrap your hair as tightly or loosely as you like around the wand, and you can define the size and definition of each wave. The glove provided is very protective against minor burns, be sure to wear it with the hand you use to wrap the hair as your fingers do get pretty close to the ceramic wand. The gloves run through the hair easily and don't cause static.
They heat up super quickly with a light that tells you when they're ready.
I would highly recommend this product to anybody with medium to long hair looking for natural, tousled waves. I found it best to blow dry hair fairly straight first so the follicles lie flat. It's easy to use, quick to heat up, and truly innovative - I don't think there's anything out there the same shape or that would style hair in this way. I feel very reassured by the automatic switch off function too. It's great!
