What could be simpler than curling your hair, right? Well, it’s not that simple. For those of us who have ever been frustrated with a curling iron, we know that getting the perfect beachy waves, glamorous Hollywood curls or soft spirals can be tougher than it looks. I’m sure we all have some embarrassing photos to prove it.
To get the curl you want, using the right-sized wand and styling products is crucial. Even though some curling iron barrels vary by mere fractions of an inch, the differences in the result may be significant if you are trying to achieve a certain look.
There are many methods to curl your hair and there are a variety of curling irons out there on the market. If you want luscious waves in your hair that look beautifully natural, a large barrel curling iron is the right choice for you; however, if you prefer tight smooth curls then you need to use a 9/18 mm curling wand. Whatever your preference may be, purchasing different curling wands can rack up a hefty bill. Luckily for all of us I discovered a great company that produces high quality hair tools and products for a super affordable price. I’m talking about a California based retail and wholesale company called HerStyler. The company envisioned fashion forward tools that would keep hair healthy and in the spotlight. They are considered one of the largest beauty tools suppliers in the industry.
I was given 3 of their products to test out and I will tell you more about each one of them below.
First the curling iron set. Why buy 10 separate wands when you can get the entire set for the price of one curler?
I absolutely love this set! The quality is outstanding and it is so practical for traveling (my husband gets super irritated with my packing. Thankfully now I can spare some room in the suitcase for his needs LOL). 3P Curler includes three different sized barrels: 9/18mm, 18/25mm, and 25/25mm that are interchangeable. The price of the set is $35.95.
Some of the pros and characteristics are:
• Clip-less Teflon barrels create shiny curls without tugging or breaking hair
• Two temperature settings that reaches up to 400°F
• Negative ion technology eliminates frizz
• 360° swivel cord prevents the cord from getting tangled or damaged
• Dual voltage accepts both 110-120V and 220-240V
The image below are the results you can achieve with this HerStyler 3P Curler set:
1. A curling iron with a SKINNY barrel (9/18mm), will give you super tight curls. This is quite an old-fashioned look that most people do not opt for currently. Tight curls might be appropriate for a wedding/formal function or dramatic bouncy look.
2. A 18/25mm middle size barrel curling iron will give you loose and bouncy curls, that can be styled by you further. I think that this look is the most elegant one and gives that Hollywood glamour flair to your hair.
3. The largest barrel (25/25mm) is my go to ‘daily curl’ look. Another benefit of using a large barrel curling iron is that they are perfect if you have medium to long hair, thick or thin. They are versatile but unfortunately do not work well on short hair.
How to Use a Curling Iron?
Most curling irons are easy to use and self-explanatory, they will also likely come with instructions. You simply put the curling iron on, take a section of your hair and wind it around the barrel, hold for a few seconds and release. The smaller the section of hair is – the more curls you will have. Experiment with the amount of hair that you use so that you can find the right look for you. Pinning up some of your hair and working on the underneath layer first is what most people choose to do, to make the process easier. After you have finished using your chosen product, running your fingers through your curls will loosen them even more and a touch of hairspray will help keep them in place.
Besides the curling set I also received Heat Protective Straightening Cream! The price of the cream is $9.95.
This Leave-in Heat Protective Straightening Cream will not only protect your hair, but will leave your hair shiny and smooth. I use this cream even with my hair strainer because I found it to work great on my hair and it just gives it that extra smoothest which I desperately need because my hair is naturally a little dry. This would be one product I really enjoyed and took me by surprise so I am already contemplating buying more of it in case I run out.
Directions: Apply the cream before styling. Best used in combination with HerStyler Hair Serum. It is natural for hair to steam while styling.
The final product I received and the one I keep always in my purse is the - De-Tangle Brush (Deep Purple). This is one product I really wanted because my hair has recently looked like a cuckoo’s nest due to all the humidity and heat. Thank God I received it, otherwise my photos would have looked much different if I hadn’t. The price of the brush is $11.95.
• Effortless detangling
• For all hair types
• Minimizes split ends
• Palm-friendly, non-slip fit
• Heat and blow dryer friendly
I’ve been styling my hair this way for years and curling my hair feels like second nature at this point. I often forget how many little tips and tricks are involved to achieve that bouncy, natural looking curl. Using a quality iron, a good brush, and protecting your hair from heat damage is essential. Lastly, you can get these products for an affordable price. Trust me, it is worth it! No one wants to end up with hair that doesn’t have any other remedy other than scissors. So, for those of you who aren’t quite as practiced with a curling iron, I am sharing my step-by-step video tutorial today.
