Straighteners, hair wands and various other heating tools have become a staple in nearly everyone’s beauty regime. Whether you use them on a daily basis or are a ‘special occasion only’ kind of girl, they have the ability to transform a person’s hair within minutes.
Of course, with so many of the market, it begs the question what tools are the best to use and, more importantly, is it always worth dishing out on high priced buys? #TheCloset decided to investigate by testing out one of the most affordable curling wands on the market, Vidal Sassoon Easy Hair Wand.
Alongside being one, if not the, first to pioneer the iconic wedge bob, Vidal Sassoon have become known for their inexpensive yet effective hair products. From treatments to dyes to styling tools, the brand is available in the likes of Boots, Superdrug and heaps of online outlets. It’s accessible, girls. Hurrah!
The wand itself is sleek, light and foolproof easy. There’s a conical, non-slip barrel that grips your hair once you wrap locks around it. Simply, hold the hair in place using a heatproof glove for a time that you feel suits the thickness and texture of your strands. Just remember, if you want tight curls opt for a few seconds longer than if you want loose, beach-wave like ones.
For best results, we’d recommend using a heatproof spray and serum. Although the process of curling your hair can be done in a matter of minutes, the heat of the tool will affect your locks. Especially if you plan on using it on a daily basis. Yikes. Oh and watch out for those fingers. Hence the gloves that are included in the kit.
Currently the hair wand is retailing for £24.99 in Boots and with a discount price like that, and amazing results like these, it’s a must if you’re looking to get your curl on for a special occasion this season. So, do heat tools need to be killer expensive to work? Not at all.
