Toni & Guy Reverse Conical Wand

Monday, September 09, 2013

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the best at styling my hair.

My hair is naturally really thick and poker straight so I tend to stick with pinning the front back and that's about it. I don't even own a pair of straighteners and I'm a little behind the times with hair styling electricals.

I've always wanted gorgeous curls so for my first foray into styling, I've been trying out the Toni & Guy Reverse Conical Wand.

The Reverse Conical Wand is a ceramic,heated, curling tool which allows you to create beautiful loose curls which are tight at the top and wide at the bottom. It heats up incredibly fast to 200˚C, thankfully the wand comes with a handy heat protection glove which is a total live saver especially for someone like me.

Unfortunately, it turns out I'm not the best at using this wand and definitely could use a little practice. My attempts weren't the best as you can see (left pic) but I'll keep trying. A word of warning though is to be really careful using it, I'm quite clumsy and ended up with a wicked burn on my wrist, not good.
Thankfully, my friend is a bit of a pro with curling wands and she created some lovely beachy waves (right pic) in my hair for a night out. (not a burn in sight either thankfully)

Its reccomended that you use the Toni & Guy Forming Gel Spray along with the wand to hold the curls. I've constantly since getting it. Although I'm not great at using the curling wand, I find this spray really helps hold my style and give a little volume to my hair when blow drying. I normally hate hair products as I can't stand the sticky feeling however this doesn't leave any residue at all. I love this product!

 You can buy the Toni & Guy Reverse Conical Wand from Boots (RRP: £30.00) and the Forming Spray Gel from Toni & Guy website (RRP £7.00)
