          I use this product to curl my hair. It works great. I would and did recommend this product to others. The only thing is, it gets extremely hot which that's the point lol. So be careful using it without a glove

                  • Q:

                    I recently cut my hair short, its up to my shoulders but I plan on growing it out again,which wand do you think will be most efficient for both long and short hair? That will also create the best loose waves?

                  • Q:

                    I bought this for my asymmetrical bob, which is longer in front (chin) shorter in back. I'm worried that the tapered wand won't give me the effect I want - beach waves. I tried to use a 1 inch barrel curling iron, but kept getting kinks, so I decided to try the tapered wand, but am afraid that the 1/2 inch end will make my waves look uneven. Should I look for a non tapered wand or can I achieve the look I want with the tapered wand I purchased? Thank you!

                      A:

                      The Nano Ceramic Tapered Iron will give you the beach wave look. Make sure to loosen the curl. Another tip is not to leave your hair on the Tampered Iron to long. I also recommend checking out the internet for tutorials.

                    I have super fine, pin straight hair and it's currently long and I am on the fence about getting a bob. What size barrel would you recommend that would work if I keep my hair long or cut it? Looking for beachy waves.

                    Does the 1-1/2 inch come in XL barrel??? I have long hair- down to my stomach- I'm not sure if regular length will be long enough.

                  • Q:

                    Hi,

                    I have an angled lob, in the front it is collarbone length and in the back it is above my shoulders. Which size will be best to achieve beachy/wavy hair?

                    My hair is medium to thick, and is naturally curly/wavy but straightens/blow dries easily thanks to keratin treatments in the past.

                    Thank you!

                      1-1/4" would be perfect! For chin length, you can even use a smaller barrel such as the 1" to achieve waves.
