How to use

  1. Brush your hair to make sure it's free of knots.
  2. Apply your favorite heat protector from roots to ends, wherever you'll be apply heat. Don't have one? Buy on Amazon
  3. Section hair into 3 sections using a hair tie or claw.
  4. Let down the first section (the bottom)
  5. Time to wear a heat resistant glove (optional). Be careful not to touch the hot wand.
  6. Depending on the size of your barrel, take smaller or larger sections 1/2 inch- 1 inch sections.
  7. Take that piece of hair and twirl it around the wand away from your face and leaving about an inch at the end to keep the effortless look.
  8. You can switch the direction and curl some pieces towards the face to create volume.
  9. Don't worry about making every section perfect, it's relaxed look.
  10. Once you're done with the first section move on to the middle sections.
  11. When you've curled all the sections use your fingers to gently comb out the waves.
  12. Add a little bit of product for hold and texture. Our favorites for the beachy wave look are:
