Vidal Sassoon Easy Wrap Curling Wand | Review


Hey, today i'm going to share with you my thoughts on this new 'Vidal Sassoon Easy Wrap Curling Wand' I've been using lately.




The wand itself has a 'non slip' texture to the barrel which does work I have to admit. It helps to hold the curl onto the wand when styling because I'm sure you all have the trouble of your hair falling half way down the wand before the heat has even reached the strand of hair you want to curl. But because of this when you release your hair from the wand it creates slightly messier strands of hair towards the top of your head. So this wand doesn't make your hair smooth and sleek but if you like messy curly hair then you will love it.

This is how it looks on my hair:




Kind of messy fishtail/beachy hair which I love.


The only thing I have to say is that as the day goes on the curls kind of go a little frizzy/messier and I'm not a fan. Don't get me wrong some people might like it and I do like messy curly hair myself, just not that type of messiness. So if you love wavy messy beach hair then this curler is for you :)


I also tested this out on my sister as she has fine hair so she finds it very difficult to hold a curl in place.


She loved how it looked and it was on freshly washed hair too. The curls lasted pretty much all day and if you want to you can brush the curls out and they still look really nice. Adding bits of hairspray in places also helps to maintain the curls throughout the day.


Things I like:

-Doesn't take long to curl your hair (10-15 mins)
-Holds your hair all the way along the wand
-Curls last a long time
-Works on both fine & thick hair

Things I don't like:

-There's only one heat setting (can't change heat of wand)
-Makes your hair frizz at the top of your head

I think personally this curling wand works best on fine hair as my sisters hair did not go frizzy/messy, it just looked shiny. Not to say people with my hair type wouldn't like this and it may be just a trial and error thing for me but for now I still think it works a lot better on fine hair. However putting my hair into a messy bun after using this looks really nice and big so it's not all bad.

So for my viewers who have blonde, fine, thin hair and are looking for a good curler then you should give this a try as I think you will love it and it is perfect curler for your hair type. So don't get me wrong and think this is a bad product because it isn't and it works perfectly fine. I'm going to carry on giving this a go so I will update you if I find a better way of using it on my hair.

Let me know what you think and if anyone has ever had my problem before & how to sort it out.

I've linked them to my blog now so if you click on both the twitter & insta icons it should take you straight there. You can also just add me by user name on the app too:

3 Cute Curly Hairstyles For Summer




I'm back with another hair post :)
I know I do these often but these are the posts I really enjoy making so i'm going to continue to do them.

I wanted to do this so those of you who like to curl your hair or already have naturally curly hair (in which case i'm very jealous of you) have a few ideas on what to do on 2nd & 3rd day hair. I normally like to curl my hair and wear it down as it is on day 1, then change it slightly the next day into maybe a bun or messy pony tail.

How I curl/style my hair. 



Basically all I do is curl large chunks of my hair to start with and once I've curled all of it, I like to mess them up a bit and make them a little looser.
I also take some hair spray in the palm of my hand and push it into the roots of my hair to give it more volume. And now your good to go.

Messy Braids.


Pretty straight forward, I like to pull on the braid a little to make it look thicker. I always find they look the best when my hair has been curled as it has a lot more texture and holds a lot better. I also like to pull out sections at the front as you can see :)..


Messy Bun.


I'm sure most of you already know how I do this but if not I'll just quickly run it past you.

  • Put your hair into a high pony
  • Twist the pony round into a doughnut shape
  • Use pins to keep your bun in place
  • Mess it up as much as you want to and use some hairspray (optional) 
Easyy ;)




If any of you have any hair style requests for me to do please do let me know and i'll be happy to have a go at it for you :)

Thanks for reading <3
