When I bought this waving iron nearly a year ago, and spending only £30 on it, I didn’t really expect much of it. My first ever pair of straighteners were Babyliss, and in my opinion, they were rubbish. However, I’d looked into buying a curling iron, researching on the internet to find one that would create natural waves rather than tight curls. I found that this waving iron had rave reviews, so I thought for only £30, I may aswell try it.
Ever since, I’ve been obsessed with it. I don’t use it every day, as I usually turn to my GHD’s when I just want laid back waves. But when I want to make an effort, or I fancy a change from my every day hair, I’ll use the Babyliss Waving Wand.
It creates really pretty, natural waves. I only have to hold the iron in my hair for a few seconds, and I’ll get the look I want.
How do I use it?
- Brush through your hair so it’s soft and there are no knots.
- Divide your hair into one or two inch sections and place the iron pointing down, facing away from your face.
- Wrap your hair around the iron, starting from 3/4 of the way down.
- Hold the iron in your hair from 1-3 seconds, depending on how tight you would like the waves.
- Do this all the way around your hair.
- When you’ve finished, brush through your hair lightly to thicken the waves and spray with hairspray.
The wand comes with a glove to protect your fingers from the heat, as I set mine to the full 200 degrees, however I don’t tend to use it even though I should! I like how the waves look a day after, with some of Batiste’s Dry Shampoo. They look less ‘just done’ and more natural.
This iron is definitely worth the £30 I spent, and I wouldn’t use anything else apart from my GHD’s!
