How to Use
Rated 4.63 out of 5 stars
I wish I would've had this wand years ago. I have fine, very straight hair that never holds a curl for more than an hour or two. I assumed that would always be the case. I bought this before a wedding just to see if I could have curls for a few hours at least. The style stayed all afternoon and evening even after dancing, which is a lifetime first for me. I was blown away. Now I use it several times a week before work and have those cute beachy waves all day. I've never liked how artificial curls can look when you use a curling iron but this wand creates the perfect casual beach look. Looking back I'd pay more $ for this if I knew it was going to work so well. HIGHLY recommend you try this wand if you've had trouble with other tools in the past and/or have straight fine hair.
I watched the videos and still couldn't get it right. I have long straight thick color treated hair and I use a regular thick barreled curling iron. This just didn't do it for me and I burnt my finger twice. Took back and ordered the Tyme Pro. We'll see how that works. Hopefully easier since it has the clip that holds your hair.

Love the loose curls this rod gives. It really does look like a blowout, and my hair looked especially natural and wavy the next day (post sleep and a little dry shampoo). It took me a year and a half to buy after first trying it because of the price. Definitely wish I ordered this earlier!

I had my eye on this wand for about 2 years before finally taking the plunge and getting it—I am in love!! I am the most low maintenance, lazy person when it comes to hair so if I can achieve effortless waves with this, so can you. I use a little dry shampoo and some Bb Spray de Mode (my holy grail) before curling, and my curls last through the next day (and I have thick, long hair) I definitely recommend this product it is well made and I never feel like my hair is trying. Get this wand!!

I had this wand for less than 2 years and used it about once a week. I loved the look it created and it was easy to use, but now it heats to 200° and then just shuts off. It's too expensive to only last a couple years.

I bought this after having a different brand curling wand. I have thick long hair that usually take 15-20 minutes roughly to curl. This cuts that time almost in half. It's so easy to use and I get the cute beach curls or soft waves I want

This curling wand is amazing. I've tried so many, as well as straighter and traditional barrel curlers and I just haven't been able to master them. My curls have always ended up looking frizzy, lopsided, or inconsistent.
It is impossible to mess up with this thing. On the first use my hair was perfect, looking like it does when I leave my stylist (who always curls). Doesn't make my hair spell burnt, my curls last all day, and they even look good after sleeping on them. I find that a lot of products don't work as well if you use "bigger pieces" of hair, but this thing curls amazing even when you're using a section of hair that is bigger than most would recommend (just hold it for a few seconds longer).
I've only had it for a few weeks, so I can't speak to how reliable or durable it is but I know that for now, it's perfect and well worth the money spent.

I have been wanting the loose, beautiful look of beach waves for over a year now. My hair is stick straight and never thought it would work for me. I was traveling for work and had some extra time so I went to the Ulta store in the Orlando area and was looking at the beach wave curler options. Thankfully a super kind Ulta team member came over to me and offered to show me how to use the curling wand - she had me sit down, she plugged in the wand and curled my entire head of hair! I was in love with the look and the ease of use. She took her time to show me how to use it and even held a mirror up for me to try a few curls myself.
Needless to say I bought the Dry Bar (the brand she used to curl my hair) wand and have used it 3x already during the week while attending a conference and have received great compliments!
Thank you Ulta for such a great beauty team and thank you Dry Bar for making my beach wave dreams come true 😊

I have been wanting this for months, and finally purchased. My hair is naturally half curly doing whatever it wants to do and frizzy. When I curled with my old wand they were tight curls and it was frizzy. Not for me. I wanted loose beach curls. This. Is. IT!!!! My frizz. Gone and it's humid outside. My hair is so silky and soft.

I have long thin, processed hair... I try to stay away from too many heating tools but had heard so many good things about this I thought I'd give it a try. It's AMAZING! It's very easy to use , the curls not only last all day but even into the next! I don't mind using the heat on my hair as the temperature is controllable and I literally hold it in my hair for a few seconds to get gorgeous curls!! So glad I purchased this !!!! Love DRYBAR!

I've had so many different wands and curling irons and I recently color treated my hair and am trying to avoid any more unnecessary damage to it while trying to repair at the same time. I researched and watched and read sooo many recommendations and you tube videos and articles on the best curling irons and wands and honestly took two weeks before I actually purchased this especially w the price point! I love it! My hair is long and thick and every time I curl my hair it falls within hours! Even with hairspray! I used this wand and I kid you not my beach waves/curl stayed for 3-4 days brushed out which saved me from having to use any heat or style it any further. After releasing my hair from the wand the wave or curl was shiny and frizz free which was a plus! I couldn't believe how amazing my hair looked I got so many compliments on my hair after using this one time! It heats up fast has a great grip for the handle where your hand is and the cool tip is amazing for not burning yourself as your curling your hair. I'm so happy I made this purchase it's so worth it! I used a coupon for it which I recommend you do and also had some Ulta points for the purchase but I would pay full price for this! So worth it even when I get my hair professionally done and they curl or wave my hair it doesn't stay like this has!

This wand was so good for about 4 months. It curled so fast and the curls lasted all day. I loved it! now 4 months later it doesn't curl my hair except for the ends and falls out within an hour or so. I am so disappointed since I spent so much money on it. Now I have to buy another wand already! I am not a happy customer!!

I LOVE the way this tool gives my hair the perfect wave. I am not very good at using curling irons so thought this would be good for me and I am blown away!! The only downside is the price, and does not come with a traveling bag which is a bummer. Other than that I absolutely love this tool!
Shelby from Texas
This is a replacement for a five-plus year old wand. I've used it twice and had great experiences both times. It's lightweight, easy to maneuver and heats up quickly.

My go to is any Bio Ionic hair tool and I was in search of a larger barrel wand that I couldn't find through them. In comparison, the Bio Ionic products are far superior to this brand. My hair didn't get as shiney or stay as long with this wand.

I can't curl my hair for nothing. I usually have lines everywhere, can't remember which way to turn, grab too much or little, burn the heck out of my hand etc. so I'm usually wearing my hair straight or up. BUT I got this as a package deal with the hairdryer (which is also amazing) AND I LOVE IT. My curls have held so well. They look so natural. My hair is less than shoulder length too so I love it even more!! Definitely need to invest in some clips next.
Jamie from Ohio
I've only had this for about a week but I absolutely love it! I never write reviews but I felt like I had to for this. It creates the most amazing curls and they lasted all day and night even on a rainy day! I'm currently on 3rd day hair and I've still got a slight wave going on. So great!
Savvy Sarah from Pittsburgh, PA
This wand is awesome! I have thick wavy (sometimes wild) hair, especially if I sleep on wet hair and let it dry overnight. This wand is actually magic though, tames this thick mane without any trouble. Many settings, quick to heat. It is a little on the bully side, but overall a great product.
Hillary from Seymour, IN
I am so NOT a girlie girl but I wanted to be able to have the beautiful waves when I needed them. This wand is user friendly and super easy to use. Even I can achieve the beautiful hair I strive for with this product.
maxsmomma from Clarkston, MI
I am obsessed with this wand! Was hesitant to buy due to the expense (yikes), but I get amazing beachy waves and it's so easy to use. I think it might be the fact that it's fatter at the top that makes the difference.
Candi from Kentucky
I got this from my husband for Christmas and I absolutely love it! Even after having a keratin treatment put in a couple weeks ago, I am still able to get curls that last and even stay for a few days. Pretty remarkable, I would definitely recommend. My hair is thick, long and straight.
Sandee C from Phoenix, AZ
I have used this in my daughter twice. She has long, thick and very straight hair. I am not an expert at hair and was able to do all of her hair in about 15 minutes and it held for 3 days!
Rebecca from New York
Love this tool!!! Gives my hair that soft, wavy curl!
Breezy from San Antonio, Tx
I was debating whether to use up all my beloved saved points I had been collecting. Makeup or 1 hair tool. Well I decided the hair tool and I am beyond happy with it! It holds curls, smooths things out somehow and also has shine. I LOVE this and have been talking all my friends about it. This is what I was looking for for so long and now I have it. Hair victory is mine!

I didn't believe my sister when she told me that this curling wand would change my hair routine. But she was right!
Tash from Washington DC
Honestly, I really wanted to love this. I love my curling wand, and I was excited to upgrade to a professional tool. Unfortunately, all that I got was fried hair, and less than exciting curls. This is definitely made for those with longer hair (my hair hits right above my shoulders). ALSO - in as long as I've been styling my hair (14+ years) I have never burned my hand so much. Any setting leaves my hair smelling like it caught ablaze. I even used it with hot toddy and I was just overall disappointed.

I have long baby fine hair and this wand holds a curl in my hair all day. I was skeptical about spending the money, but I was not disappointed. I don't mind paying a little extra for a better product, so far great impression from DryBar! Thinking about trying their buttercup blow dryer out next.
