To achieve gorgeous curls in the comfort of your own home, you might have become quite used to the idea of using the standard curling iron. Curling irons have been around for decades, and have become quite the go-to hot tool in the beauty industry for curling hair. They’re easy to use, achieve great curls, and are pretty foolproof. However, sometimes you just need to switch things up a bit! You never know what great discovery you might stumble upon just by trying something new. This ‘something new’ just so happens to be a cool and trendy gadget used for curling hair that has quickly made its way into the hearts of many women worldwide – the bubble curling wand.
Bubble curling wands have revolutionized the world of curls. These innovative tools are suitable for all types of hair, and can give both defined curls or loose waves depending on how you wrap your hair around the barrel. Speaking of which, the barrel design is exactly what gives this cute little curling wand its name.
Using a bubble wand is similar to using a curling iron, but of course there are a few differences. Here are a few tips to make the process easier for you!
Firstly, make sure that your hair has been thoroughly detangled, and that’s it’s completely dry. Wet or damp hair can be disastrous when paired with hot tools, and curling wands are no different. If your hair is tangled and you attempt to curl it, your curls won’t be smooth or uniformly done.
Use a small amount of heat protectant all over your head, ensuring that your strands don’t become weighed down or greasy. You can use a cream, spray or serum for this purpose. Simply find the one that’s right for you! Then, section your hair and ensure that your wand is clean of any grease of product before use.
Here’s where the magic happens. Taking a small or medium-sized section of hair, wrap it around the barrel of the wand starting at the thick base and descending down the shaft of the barrel as you go. Hold for about 10-15 seconds then release, and you’re done! It’s as easy as 1,2,3! Adding a finishing product is optional, but you know your hair best.
