      I have long layered and medium thick hair, wavy hair both barre didn't work for me. I wanted long loose curls and instead I was barely getting a curl to hold. I'm sticking to my Remington $17 cone barrel iron

            First time using a wand, bought this because price was right for two wands, got on sale. Easy to use, left a curl in hair for a long time, especially for my thick hair

              I always do research on hair tools ahead of time. I watch videos online of the wands being used, I was impressed by the results of the Big Waves barrel, so i purchased it. It was amazing how it worked its magic on my long hair. Absolutely recommendable!

                    Gets very hot. Easy to use. Two sizes. I would have preferred a full glove instead of the 3 finger one they provided.

                          Does this work well for short hair if you want just a loose curl and not a tight curl?

                            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?

                            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!

                            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).

                            Medium 310ºF - Average-to-thick or treated hair
                            Med-High 330ºF - Thick or wavy hair
                            High/Max 360ºF–400ºF - Hard-to-curl hair
