The wand heats up quickly & I love that they come with the heat pouch as I have a constant fear of causing all sorts of damage when using heat hair tools! On first use I found the wand fairly easy, but a little bit awkward due to my own lack of coordination. I kept going to hold the end with the non-gloved hand! Might just be me, but I would actually find it easier to have two gloves included as it would mean doing both sides of the hair wouldn’t mean changing gloves.
As with every time I go to curl my hair I do find it difficult to get every bit of hair and this was no different but I did like that it was straightforward to just grab a bit of hair and wrap it around the wand. As you can probably see in the picture some of the curls are more defined than others – this was part of me playing around with how long I held the hair to the wand for. The longer I held it, the tighter/more defined the curl (same for using smaller chunks of hair).
I need to keep practising, but overall I have decided that this is a fairly easy way to achieve the beachy look but you have to be happy to spend around 20mins or so doing your hair to achieve the look.
