This Or That: Curling Iron vs. Curling Wand

Everyone dreams of having full, bouncy, movie star curls… but it seems intimidating to turn that dream into a reality. From blogs and shops to your family and friends, you’ve probably heard every trick in the book about how to rock a curly ‘do—and you might be feeling too overwhelmed to tell the difference between beauty brilliance and beauty babble. You need a simple answer to a not-so-simple question: “Should I use a curling iron or a curling wand?”

The truth behind finding your perfect curl is that there are pros and cons of both tools. We’ve broken it down into a “this or that” showdown, so that you can choose the tool that best fits your hair type and— of course— your goal look! Whether you want corkscrew curls or carefree waves, you’ll know what you need to make your dream come true.

(BB Mentor Stina tip: Position the barrel midway (so you don’t concentrate the heat and pressure on your ends) before you wind the iron up and back down.)

(BB Mentor Stina tip: Use the “flip and shake” technique. After finishing, flip your hair over and give it a good shake to add some volume and bounce!)
