      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

                        A little tricky to use but worth the effort. Heat glove that comes with it very helpful. My hair is thin, straight and fine texture. This wand gave my hair a "beach wave" look with my first use without damaging hair.

                          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.

                        • 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.

                            It measures 3/4" at the tip and 1-1/4" at the base. If you want waves, that one or the 1 1/2" option would be great for you!

                            The difference is the material of each -

                            CeramicTI Tourmaline (purple) - Ceramic Tourmaline surface with titanium additive emits gentle far-infrared heat and negative ions to increase hydration and shine while reducing frizz.

                            24K gold plated (gold) - Even heat distribution create long-lasting curls and waves leaving hair looking smooth and glossy.

                            NanoCeramic (black & white) - NanoCeramic barrel creates an ultra smooth surface for frizz-free styles.
