I have always used a traditional clip barrel curling iron or straightener on my hair. I started seeing curling wands all over social media. I decided to see what it was all about and jump on board. Once I got used to how it worked, I fell in love. The hardest thing for me was to get used to holding the wand upside down and wrapping the hair. Let me tell you in the beginning a glove is a must! I have had many burns thinking I didn’t need the glove. Once I finally got the hang of the wand, I no longer use the glove. (It is recommended with all wands to use a glove for safety.)
I will link a glove that can be bought that will actually protect your fingers. Some of the wands come with gloves that are not so great.
Why a wand instead of a regular curling iron? In my opinion, once you get the hang of a wand, it goes much faster. Also, you can change the curls up to make them have a loose wave look. I was not able to get the same look with a curling iron. If you struggle with a crease from the clip, a wand solves that problem. My curls seem to hold longer with a wand. I have them for a good 2 days without having to touch them up.

To start this wand was way too skinny. I was not sure what size to get, so I started with this one. My hair is right at shoulder length, and even with curling larger pieces the curls were way too tight. It is perfect for my girls. They have naturally curly hair, so it works great to curl strand that are straight. This was a good wand for the price, and a larger size would have worked much better. I am not a huge fan of a tapered wand. I feel like the hair slides down toward the small end. Maybe with practice this would get easier. I prefer the barrel to be the same size. The quality felt a little cheap, but got the job done. The glove that came with the wand was useless. It was the material of a regular knit glove. The heat came right through. I did like the pink color of this wand. Overall I would recommend this in a larger size. This price point is great.

I purchased this wand to compare it to the T3 Whirl Trio. I was very pleased with the quality of this wand. It was very nice. The barrel variety is great. They are very easy to change out, with just the click of a button on the side of the base. (Only do this when the wand barrel is cool). I liked the 25-32 mm barrel to give a loose messy wave. The price of this wand is amazing and the options you get with it are fantastic. I also tried the 25 mm bead barrel. I did not see much of a difference with this expect the curls were tighter. The hair slipped between the beads and settled when curling so the curls were pretty tight. The protective glove that came with this one was again just basic knit and useless. You feel the heat immediately touching the wand. I would recommend using a different glove.

This wand was the first one I purchased. The titanium version is intended for medium to coarse hair. There is another option for other hair types. I truly loved this wand. Thank goodness the glove was great, because it gets so hot. Being my first wand, I learned with this one. My fingers and right ear suffered the learning curve. I highly recommend this wand. The quality is fantastic. The only thing I wish that could be adjusted is the temperature level. When using this wand or any wand make sure you are using a good heat protectant on your hair. Applying such high temperatures without a protectant can be very damaging.

This is my absolute favorite and the wand I use. This one is definitely a splurge. With the holidays coming up it would be a great one to add to your Christmas List. I have tried all three attachment barrels with the wand and love them all. I have also ordered the 1 inch clip barrel to try out. My favorite barrel is the 1inch straight barrel. I use it and get wavy curls. The glove that comes with this one is ok, so use the glove from the L’ange. It also comes with a resting pad for the wand. This is nice because it gets so hot it will protect your counter. The large barrel is nice as well it is 1 1/2 inch, but it is a little large for my hair being shoulder length. The tapered barrel 1 1/4 - 3/4 is great for a messier look. The locking system is a precision turn lock on the wand base and very easy to use. The quality of this wand is above and beyond. I love that you can buy different attachments to go with it. This is truly a wand that will last a long time. I highly recommend this one!
