A few days ago, when I posted about how I do my eyebrows, PinkPirate asked how I had curled my hair. I've had pictures taken for a review and tutorial for a while, I just needed to finally get going and put the post together!
There are two ways that I curl my hair. The first is detailed in my Easy Beachy Curls Tutorial. I prep my hair, curl it all over with my BeachWaver. I love the BeachWaver because I can adjust the temperature and the auto-curl button is very easy. The BeachWaver waves last for days and need minimal touch up. But, the curls can be a bit too tight (I wish the barrel was about 1/2 inch bigger), so they look best as next day hair. In addition, due to the size of the curls, I can't really use the BeachWaver for touchup. I need a bigger curl for the look I want.
Recently, the nice people from ISO Beauty sent me their 5 Piece Curling Iron Set to review. Since it arrived at my house, I've been in love with this product! It's basically a clipless curling iron, execept that it has 5 different wands to use with it! I've been using the wand for curling all over my head and for occasional touch ups.
In order to change out the wand, you need to press the buttons on the top and bottom at the same time and pull. It's not hard, but it isn't exactly easy either. I haven't tried this when the wand is hot, but it's hard enough when it is cool that I really wouldn't recommend doing it until everything has cooled off. So, pick a size for the day and stick with it! I've mostly been using the 32 mm and 25 mm sizes.
After I'm done curling, a little spritz of Elnett is all I need. (And yes, somehow that little bit of Elnett does make a big difference, without it my hair is straight faster.) This is my current favorite trio of products, whether I'm using my BeachWaver or the clipless curling iron.
