I have a running joke with a friend who always says I could post a picture on Instagram holding an Olympic Gold Medal I just won, or a Nobel Peace Prize or an announcement stating I had single-handedly eradicated the Ebola virus, and the first comment would still be about my hair. I get a lot of questions about baking. I get a lot of questions about gardening. And I get a LOT of questions about my hair. So I thought it would be fun to show you guys the secret weapon I use at home for beautiful, smooth, beachy waves and curls and give you a KILLER deal on one for yourself!
I have tried a LOT of styling tools and methods, and my hands-down favorite is a good curling wand.
I use NuMe wands, which normally run for $139-$149. I bought my first NuMe wand with a great discount and I’ve been waiting to share them until I could get a huge discount for YOU guys! Are you ready for this?? Use the code BESTBITES28 and you can get any curling wand from NuMe for $28. That’s not a typo. Twenty-eight dollars, people!! Do I need to scream that even louder?? That’s as low as you will spend on something from Target or Walmart so seriously, snatch these up! This is a Memorial Day Sale so the offer is good through May 31st. Don’t wait!
I know it can be a little confusing when looking at the different sizes and styles, so I’ll tell you from experience what I use because I have all 3 sizes! They have Classic Wands and Magic Wands. The classic are made from tourmaline-infused ceramic coated barrels and the Magic Wands are titanium. The other difference is that the Classic Wands just have an on/off switch with one heat setting, and the Magic Wands have adjustable heat. All of my wands are the Classic model, and Kate uses a Magic Wand. I’ll warn you right now that there is an uncomfortably large amount of selfies in this post. Sorry about that, but really. It’s the best way to show you real-life application here, not some model with a professional team. I decided to even mostly use my phone camera here because I wanted to show you very real, natural, unedited photos. This are all just taken at home after my everyday routine. Anyone can do this!
The size I use the most is the 25mm, which is the middle one. If in doubt, this is a good size to go with. It produces loose, full curls, and if you run your hands through them more and more, you’ll get big waves of volume. Here’s a picture after using the 25mm. And I should note that I did my hair at 7am and this is probably around 3pm. (Both of the photos up until this point in the post were also done with the 25mm)
The larger 32mm gives you big beachy waves. The kind they show you in magazines and tell you they can be achieved by spraying salt in your hair and letting in air dry in the sand. (Lies!) You get those with a larger barreled curing wand.
I use this one when I want mostly wavy volume. Here’s a picture after using the 32mm.
From the front it looks similar to the 25mm, but you can see from the side it’s pretty wavy.
The smallest 19mm looks so tiny. And you’ll probably think it’s too small for anything but ringlets on a child, but not so! It will give a tight curl, that loosens out as you run your fingers through.
These pics were taken after using the 19mm.
And here’s a little while later after it had relaxed a bit and I ran my fingers through even more. Still lots of soft, bouncy, smooth curls.
I have fairly long hair, but these wands work great for shorter hair as well. If you have medium/short hair, I would probably stick to the 25mm or smaller. Here’s a couple shots of Kate, who has shoulder-length hair and is using the 25 mm wand.
So there you have it. Treat yo self this weekend and grab one of these fun wands and have fun adding something to your beauty routine. Don’t forget to use code BESTBITES28 to get any of the wands for $28 bucks! –>Click Here to Shop!<–
