Wand Up Your Life

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

So I got a hair cut a few weeks ago… 6 inches off! “Nobody can tell but you!” is all that I’ve heard since then but I may or may not have cried the first night I got it cut. Insert my salvation and hero: One ‘n Only Argan Heat Ceramic Taper Curling Iron. (Woof, such a mouthful).

Coincidentally enough, this is my favorite wedding present. My hairdresser of 16-ish years got my me and my husband a gift card but also got me my own present. At first glance, kind of random but I must inform you about my curling iron problem. I have been an avid curler user for the past 3 or 4 years. I always thought my hair looked pretty great but kind of fake (I guess that’s the best way to describe it). The curls were perfectly twirled and did not blend in with the rest of my hair. I had heard and read about curling wands and how great they are for the past few months but was content with my old school curler so I never gave any thought about trying them. When I got this gift, I was excited and yet hesitant about it. I never used one before and figured I would burn myself using it. Well, one boring day in Searcy changed all of that. I decided to do a practice run with my new wand and fell in love! Seriously, possibly a girls’ best friend (if done right). The trick is to not start curling at the top of your head, but a few inches down. Otherwise you end up looking like an unflattering version about Shakira. Example:

Now if that’s the crazy hair look you’re going for, have at it. Personally, I like a little more tamed look. Anyways, this post is getting longer by the second… All in all, the wand is wonderful. It blends in with my naturally wavy hair, it’s a great investment, and you should get one.
