For the longest time I thought curly hair just wasn't in the cards for me. It took a professional over two hours and an entire bottle of hairspray to curl my hair for prom, so I had little hope at getting a curl to hold on my own. Over the years I had tried with little to no success.

On a whim I bought this curling wand and it's been a game changer. My super long, fine, naturally straight, super-processed hair actually holds a curl! WITHOUT PRODUCT! The curls are super gorgeous and bouncy and last all day and night, and my hair doesn't feel dry or damaged afterwards. I keep use to a minimum just to not cause any long-term damage, but I'm so happy that I finally have an option beyond straight. My only wish is that the barrel is longer; my hair is over 27" long so I run out of room to wrap it fairly quickly.

Skip the expensive salon models, this baby's all you need. ...read more

When almost every salon you go to uses the same curling irons, you know it has to be good! I own this product in every size they make (my mom stole the 3/4 inch from me haha). They are very affordable and Ulta often has deals on them or they give you free hot tool with a purchase of one. I can't live without my 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch irons. The heat is adjustable which is nice. I've been using these irons for over 10 years and I'm only 27. Some people I know even take the clip off and use it as a barrel iron, which is smart because it is hard to find barrel irons in different sizes. I will be using hot tools forever! They are great for all hair types. *****Oh and one more tip! My best friend who has super long, thick, curly hair - blow dries her hair, straightens a section, THEN curls it! This works so well and her hair always looks bomb! ...read more

I love Hot Tools. Just about every hair tool I have is from Hot Tools. I bought this waver on a whim because I wanted something a little different. My hair was very long when I bought this and I used to do the prettiest mermaid waves. I would quickly and lightly press it through my hair just to get some texture. Now, my hair is much shorter and it still looks great. I found that with my hair being so short I can't quickly go through it, I actually have to clamp down and go piece by piece. It's a little annoying but the end result is always so pretty. ...read more

I love my curling wand. Herstyler is the best brand of styling products that I have used. I have the Herstyler curling wand and Herstyler straightener, and I love both! When I use my Herstyler curling wand, the curls/waves come out fantastic. I used my Suave Moroccan oil shine infused styling oil along with my Herstyler curling wand, and the curls came out wonderful. I used the curling wand for 15 seconds on each section. The section were about 1 inch in depth. I took a section, curled it for 15 seconds, grabbed it with my hand to hold the curl in place for about 3 seconds, and released the curl. The curl came out spiral and wavy! I ran my fingers through the curls, once I finished curling every section and strand. The curls stayed in place. I did it a few days ago, and the curls are still in place. They did not fall out. Even better, the curls looked like I spent hours on them, when in reality, I spent about 5-10 minutes. That's awesome! ...read more

My friend used this on me for a wedding and I absolutely loved it so I went and picked one up. It leaves the perfect curl and the barrel is big enough to give beachy waves too. It was pretty affordable for a good curling iron. I would recommend ...read more

Best wand ever! I've tried quite a few but none have work as great as this one. Curls my hair super fast and leaves my hair curly for days! Definitely impressed! It's worth every penny! Tips to hold s curl for longer don't let it fall as soon as you revoke the wand, hold it in your hand for a few seconds then apply hairspray. Your curls will last longer. ...read more
