Babyliss Curling Wand

I have been looking for a curling tong that curls my hair into ringlets as I often find that most create a large wave in my hair. Until now, I have been using my GHD straightening irons to create a curl, however always found I was much more able to curl on my left side, leaving my right side looking slightly limp.

In general, my hair is quite malleable and usually stays in curls if I curl it the day after I wash it - this means I don't need to use as much hairspray when I use the tong. After reading various blog posts and YouTube video's I found that a popular tong used for curling was Babyliss - Curling Wand.

The website states:

"This sassy styler is simply brilliant - it's no wonder that the Babyliss Curling Wand is such a huge hit with hairdressers. There's no clamp to fiddle with; just wrap your hair around the barrel for a few seconds and voila! Beautiful, modern curls will be yours - without any annoying kinks" 
The fact that the tong has no clamp was quite an experience for me, and I actually found that if it did have the clamp I would have found it alot easier to use. 

The wand comes with a glove which is advised to be worn while wrapping the hair around it to avoid burning. This was a interesting and neat extra added by Babyliss and did aid me in curling my hair without the clamp holding it in place.

The tong is 25mm - 13mm size which produces a relatively tight curl, however with 5 heat settings this can easily be controlled. Due to the thickness of my hair, I decided to use the highest heat setting which is 210degrees. This created a beautiful tight curl which gave my hair volume and was a look I had never had before. I would definitely recommend these curling tongs as they produce such a modern and edgy look - something that will totally work with mixi/midi skirts and blouses in these summer months.

Here are some pictures of the curls I made using my new favourite curling wand :
