I saw this exciting looking hair tool on a few other blogs including Fleur de force who raved about the waving wand and so as a girl who curls and straightens using her GHD's I was intrigued by this new gadget. Soft natural looking waves instead of tight curls which is exactly what I have always wanted to create. I spotted the wand on amazon for less than £20 and put it straight onto my wish list. Unfortunately my excitement took over and I ended up buying it sooner than I intended to! However I am so glad that I gave into temptation as I have used it almost every day since and am loving the results!
Babyliss 2286U Waving Wand - www.amazon.co.uk £17.40
Wand with good length cable and heat protecting glove for wrapping hair and holding close to the wand
It is important to wrap the hair away from the face to achieve this look and to wrap in the same direction for the whole head however you can wrap forwards then backwards to create a more messy look :)
Because the wand has no clamp you aren't left with any ridges in the hair and the oval shape of the wand means that a wave is created instead of a round curl. Curls can be great for certain occasions, especially evenings out or special occasions however I think I prefer this more casual tousled look because it is suitable for day and night and looks a lot less "made up" that proper curls. For under £20 this hair tool was a great investment for me and I am really happy with the final look.
