    Comments about Conair You Big Waves:

    I love this wand a million times more than any I've ever used. The little silicone spots help to hold my hair in place while curling. I've gotten so annoyed with other wands because my hair falls down the wand, but not this puppy.

      Comments about Conair You Big Waves:

      We bought this for our 15 yo niece who has gorgeous long thick wavy hair. It was an instant hit with both her AND our 13 yo daughter who also has very long hair... but it is silky and not thick (she is Chinese and her hair is stick straight). Both girls had super fun and pretty waves and while I am not sure how long the 15 yo's hair waves lasted, they lasted 3 days on our daughter's... which most of the time curls of any sort last a blink of an eye. Love it! I suspect there will be one wrapped up for our daughter now too when her birthday comes around!

        I have been trying to get big loose curls for a long time now and just couldn't find a tool to guarantee the curls that I wanted every time. This tool has been my answer. It gives me perfect curls each time I use it and it takes me less than 15-20 minutes. I love it so much!

                  The only con is that it really does stink the first time I used it and the cord is WAY too small. But besides that this is the perfect size for beachy waves of all hair lengths!! Basically two for the price of one.

                      Yes, you can use the You Big Waves on thin, long hair. Try starting at a lower heat setting for thin hair to help prevent damage to the hair.

                      The The tapered large barrel (1 3/4" to 1") on the You Big Waves conical wand is ideal for creating loose curls and waves. To get the loosest curl, wrap hair around the bottom of the conical wand where the barrel is the largest.

                  • Q:

                    What type of curl will it make? I have hair down to my back, with a tiny bit of grown out layers, so it looks shorter if I bring my hair to the front. How long will it take to do my entire head? If I part my hair down the middle and curl my hair away from my face will it look like the style everyone is going for now a days?

                      A:

                      The Conair You Big Waves will create soft/loose waves, as it has a pretty large barrel size. The bonus attachment barrel will give your hair loose curls, since it is a bit smaller than the other barrel. Depending on the thickness of your hair, it should take about 15-20 minutes to do your whole head of hair. You can definitely curl your hair away from your face to create voluminous curls.

                  • Q:

                    Will this work abroad in Europe with a plug adapter? The Conair website says everything will work abroad with just a plug adapter, but I've seen other reviews say it doesn't work on the same voltage. I love it and want to bring it with me!

                      A:

                      You do not need a voltage converter to use your curling iron abroad. However, you may need an adapter to make sure your curling iron plug fits in the foreign wall outlet. These adapters may be purchased at airports, luggage and travel stores. Many hotels are providing adapters to guests upon request (check with the concierge at your hotel).
