Creating natural looking beachy curls totally eludes me. I have tried using curling irons and wands and either end up burning myself (the burn on my neck was particularly distressing) or my hair just looks terrible (that little piece at the end that doesn’t curl because you have to hold it is horrid)…or both. I have also tried quite a few of those so-called”automatic” curling wands and they either don’t work or I’ve had to call 911 to help get my hair untangled from the wand which is scary (but not as scary or hysterical as this hair curling tutorial fail).
So when I received the KISS InstaWave, I have to admit it sat in the box in my office for quite a while. I had no need for more disappointment and I had nowhere to go (still recovering from spinal surgery). However, last night I had to go out and my hair naturally dried into something dreadful and then I remembered the wand in the box (I had discarded the others). When I read there was no need to be a pro, I thought, what the hell?
So I tore into the box, plugged it in and briefly read the instructions while it heated up. Well, in a nutshell, it works! In fact, it’s like CURLS FOR DUMMIES. Why? The revolutionary KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic curler that instantly creates tangle-free, beautiful, longlasting curls with ease. You can style with any hand, from any position and it works on any hair type with a simple touch of a button. The specifically designed curl dial allows for left/right curl directions so your hair never gets caught. Phew, no need to panic.
You simply place a 1-2″ section of hair along the diamond-ceramic wand (which you hold vertically). Then press the button and it starts to rotate the curl barrel while and catching and curling your hair with the help of these little prongs at the base. Keep holding the button until your hair is completely around the barrel and hold it for about 10 seconds. Then lightly pull the barrel straight down and your perfect frizz-free curl will tumble out. That annoying 1″ end of the hair is even curled too! The KISS InstaWave is brilliant I tell you! Toss the others out, I promise you will be a pro in no time! I’m hooked.
