A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the Sapphire 8 in 1 curling wand and how obsessed with it I am. Today, I’m sharing six different looks I was able to create with this wand, even on my short hair. Although I’m a bit of a novice with the curling wand, I was still able to create some interesting styles to provide variety in my look. Check it out…
1. 13mm Curling Wand Barrel
This is the smallest barrel of the bunch and definitely one of my favorites. Although I have naturally curly hair (that I straighten daily), my natural curls are a little too tight. I found the curls created by the 13mm wand to be perfect — tight enough to be fun, but not too tight that they get frizzy. I’m a big fan of mixing up my look every now and again with this wand!
2. 13/25mm Reverse Cone Curling Wand Barrel
This wand might win the award for most odd-looking, but I love the curls it creates on me — sort of loose and romantic, but still pretty noticeable overall. And because of the tapered barrel, it also gives some variation in the curls. I curled alternating pieces in opposite directions for a little added interest.
3. 18/9mm Cone Curling Wand Barrel
The 18/9mm barrel makes nice, effortless-looking curls that are a little looser on top and tighter on the bottom. Because this is the smaller of the cone barrels (getting to the larger one next), this barrel’s curls are still very pronounced — even on my bob.
4. 12/13mm Cone Curling Wand Barrel
Since getting my Sapphire, this barrel is the one I use the most. It provides a nice soft wave that’s perfect for any day of the week. And, you can achieve a slightly different look by curling hair all in the same direction v. curling alternating pieces in opposite directions. It creates those sort of beachy waves that everyone always loves.
5. 25mm Curling Wand Barrel
After playing with all the specialty barrels, I loved going back to the simplicity of a barrel like the 25mm. The waves created are pretty subtle on short hair (I assume this will make those big loose barrel curls on longer hair), but they’re perfect for everyday.
6. 32mm Curling Wand Barrel
The final barrel I tried out for this post was the 32mm. I actually didn’t think this barrel would do much on my hair due to its length, but I actually love the waves it creates — very casual and chic.
