Most Helpful Positive Review Best wand I've ever used.
I recently bought this wand after getting my hair done at the salon in Ulta. It was the cheapest and I just wanted something with a bigger barrel than I had. Being that it was a product that was inexpensive I didn't have high hopes but this wand turned out to be my go to wand now. The curls look like you just stepped off a beach and last most of the day. I do notice that the curls aren't as intense once night comes but a 5 minute touch up fixes that straight away!
Most Helpful Critical Review Doesn't hold curls
I've tried multiple different techniques with this, used lots of hairspray. But it won't hold curls for more than a couple hours, and my hair ALWAYS holds curls. I'm used to curls staying in my hair for days at a time with other wands, but they barely stay at all with this one. Super disappointed.

I love this. It is the perfect size to make those lovely beach waves.
Ended up returning
Beth from Grandville, MI
It didn't hold the curl in my hair. I have hair that is fine and straight. I ended up returning and getting the Hot Tools wand and it holds the curls much better. This iron doesn't have a temperature button so it's only one option and it didn't get hot enough for my hair.
Doesn't hold a curl
Hanna from Ok
My hair is course and can hold a curl without hair spray. This is the only wand or curling iron I've ever tried that does not hold my curls. They fall out within hours when normally my hair can hold a curl for days. I wish I could return it but I have had it too long now.
Curls Don't Hold At All
Bree from New Jersey
I was so excited to use this product, I bought it 2 years ago and for the longest time I thought I wasn't using the right hairspray to hold my curls. It turns out it's just the curling iron. Curls do not stay at all. This is a good product if you want "beach waves" but not good for big bouncy curls.
Love this curling wand!
Swade from Murfreesboro, TN
I divide my hair into 3 different layers (sections) starting with the bottom layer. Then I take small sections of hair and wrap around the iron, holding the ends out.
Does not result in held curls.
Amanda from Minneapolis
Prior to buying this curling wand, I used the same curling wand for 8 years from Revlon. When that died, I decided to buy this as a replacement and have never been so disappointment. Not all curling wands are made equal. There is no temperature control on this curling wand, so it is what it is. I've never in my life had a hard time getting my hair to hold a curl but it just won't after using this wand. My curls fall out after about an hour and my hair ends up looking awful. Such a disappointment.
Bought something else
TB from NY
I thought this was okay at first. I've used it multiple times. It just does not hold a curl. I literally douse my head in extra hold hairspray and even after an hour, the curls are gone and my hair straightens out. I spent a little more and bought a wand from BabylissPro.
Lauren from Dallas, TX
I've had this wand for years and it never lets me down! Once you get the hang of it you'll fall in love! Best purchase I've ever made. Make sure to use a good quality hairspray and you're good to go! (I also have very straight hair)
did not get the glove
brenna from oklahoma
the curls are not that great, and the glove that is suppose to be included, was not in my package. my 1/2 inch wand does better curls for my long hair. and i have long hair
WORST PRODUCT I'VE EVER GOTTEN
Lau from NY
Does NOT curl hair. Rather, hair ends up with kinks and marks. 100% DO NOT RECOMMEND!! WASTE WASTE WASTE OF MONEY
Beautiful Big Curls
GBJess from Green Bay, WI
Was worried big curls would not stay in my fine hair, but did not have an issue! Very happy with this purchase especially since it was not too expensive. Took a couple tries to get the hang of using a wand instead of a curling iron. After I got the hang of it it worked great! It comes with a little glove that you wear on the hand that is holding your hair to protect your fingers which is nice!
Not worth it
TB from Buffalo, NY
So for me, I don't think it gets hot enough. There's only one heat setting so you can't change it. I like the curls this gives my hair but even after dousing myself in hair spray, my curls last 1-2 hours.
Super Cute Waves
gabs from michigan
I bought this on a whim because i didn't feel like spending $85 on the real curling iron i wanted. this is actually a great product! i have very thick straight hair and i find that it's hard to get curls to stay for long periods of time. the over all "beach waves" look i was going for took me 40 minutes and did it by sections. looks great and held through an entire work day. i slept until it also, looks great the next day. would 100% recommend this curler.
Low heat curls fall out almost immediately
NIJ from CLE
I've used numerous irons before and this is by far the worst. Your curls will not hold for more than an hour! There's no heat adjustment it's very low
Tay from Dothan, AL
I tried It for the first time and thought i was doing something wrong. However, after using it two more times I realized the curl doesn't preform as advertised on the box it came it. It has no heat setting either. Not worth the money.
Love for loose curls
Larissa from Georgia
I used it on my hair for my baby shower and got the most beautiful loose waves/ curls!!! Added some oils and serums it looked perfect
Love the curl size, soft and pretty.
Deb from Houston TX
I have a 1 and 1/2 inch cone. Needed something a little bigger and softer curls. This meets all my needs
and great price.
Affordable good quality wand
Xuly from Atlanta, GA
I have tried a couple of curling irons and wands but my hair, even though it is curly, does not hold any curls with heat. I was skeptical about this wand since i can't choose a temperature setting but wow it works!! It's fast and easy to use and my curls stay for days.
1 1/4" curling wand
EmyLou from San Diego, ca
Great curling wand! I owned the 1" one and loved it but bought this one because I wanted more of a looser/beach wave. It's perfect! Heats up quickly and with some product, my curls last me about 3-4 days. Definitely recommend for the price!
Love this brand
Renee from Austin, TX
I do like this curling iron. I had the 1 inch barrel in the same brand and model which I loved but left at a hotel so thought I'd try this one. I do really like it but simply due to the bigger size my curls drop out a lot faster than with the 1 inch. I think I may buy another 1 inch and alternate the curl. I really love the loose curl of the 1.25 inch but doesn't last as long.
great for beginners
steezyA from houston
I never wanted to curl my hair till I got a balayage. Therefore I never used a classic curling iron! This is great for beginners!
Yes it's not the BEST, but you are paying $25-35 for it :)
My curls will be defined & eventually loosen into loose beach waves even with hairspray, still looks really cute in my opinion
Sayrah from GA
Beach Wave to the max!
Christina from NY
I love this 1 1/4" curling wand. I have somewhat thick hair and is also super long down my back and this wand still does its job!. I tried the 1 1/2" wand but it did absolutely NOTHING. This wand heats up quickly, stays at its true temp and makes a beautiful curl as well as a sweet beachy wave. This is just what I was looking for. I wrap the may hair starting at the top of the wand and count to 20 then let it loose. My hair does not burn either! Totally a must have when you want to change your look from sleek straight to a beach wave. Great product at a great price.
Taylor B from Buffalo, NY
Easy to use. I don't use hair spray after doing my hair and the curls settle down into a natural wave, and lasts all day. No complaints!!!
Easy to use
Kayelle from TX
I've always had trouble with regular curling irons, this wand changed my life! It's quick and easy to use. I don't use the glove... just seems odd to me.
