Not only because it sounds better than, "curling stick" or "curling pole." But also because "wand" makes me think of magic. And how it curls my hair - hair that wouldn't take to any other curling iron or roller in the past - is magical.
There are many great things to be said for a curling wand, but today I want to talk about the wider width one I recently purchased at Target.
I wanted something that would mimic my natural waves so I could touch up the next day, or go full on beach wave look without having to let my hair air dry.
So I went out and bought this mammer jammer.
And it's also great for just giving me some small waves here and there when I don't want to go full curls. My hair is very layered, so there are nights when I'll sleep all over the bed in crazy positions and wake up with kinks everywhere (I don't know exactly if that's how they come about, but it is pretty wild how some days I'll wake up with straight hair and other days...not so much).
Curling wands are nice for adding a touch of texture here and there. They also eliminate that line that you can sometimes get from a curling iron, and make the whole look a lot more natural.
Try one out for yourself this summer! They're less than $30 and can add a new do to your routine.
