Soft, Loose Waves with a Curling Wand

I love trying new hair products and tools, but I definitely have my favorites.

One of those faves is my curling wand. I use mine all the time – we’re talking multiple times a week – and it’s perfect for getting gorgeous wavy hair.

Today, I’m showing you have to get soft, loose waves with a curling wand, and you won’t believe how easy it is!

Have you ever used a curling wand before? Basically, it’s a clip-less curling iron.

Maybe I’m just uncoordinated, but I find my curling wand much easier to use than my curling iron. Since there’s no clip, there’s no danger of creating marks in your hair, and getting gorgeous waves is as easy as wrapping your hair around the wand.

Want soft, loose waves, too? Here’s what you need:

Start with dry hair and run a comb through your ends if they’re tangled.

Divide your hair into three horizontal sections and secure with clips. I like to have one section for the top of my head, a middle section, and a lower section starting around the bottom of my ears.

If your hair is thick, you can divide it into more sections.

Hold the curling wand vertically with the tip pointing toward your feet. Start a few inches from your scalp and wrap a small section of hair around the wand in a spiral (curling away from your face). For more natural curls, don’t wrap the bottom inch or two of your hair around the wand.

Once your hair is wrapped, count to 10, and then release your hair. My hair is pretty fine, so if yours is thicker, you will need to hold it longer to set the curl.

Tip: if your hair is really long, wrap it in two sections. Curl the section nearest your scalp first, release the curl, and then do the ends.

They tend to stick straight out … annoying.

If you’re in the same boat as me or just want to blend your bangs into your hair, I have an easy trick. Simply twist your bangs together, then use a bobby pin or two to secure them under the top layer of your hair.
