So here’s a major beauty confession: I am actually really bad at curling my hair. It’s funny because I’ve actually gotten quite good at updos and fancy braids, which definitely require a lot more skill and patience. But the simple Olivia Palermo wave (she’s one of my ultimate hair crushes, just in case you were curious) has always eluded me. Not a ringlet, but definitely not something you get from just using salt spray and air drying—I’ve never been able to get the look quite right. For the longest time, I thought maybe I could get this effortless tousle with a flat iron, and many women do, but I’m just not that good at it. For me, the answer is a clipless curling iron.
Last week, I tried the Sedu clipless iron for the first time while at the office and I was blown away. Literally, you just hold the barrel facing up or down and wrap your hair around it. It works like a charm! So you can imagine how happy I am to have just received this John Frieda tool, which boasts a ceramic-coated barrel to protect hair and just a 30-second wait to heat up. I’ll definitely be reporting back on my wave-making progress, but in the meantime, I’m curious about what tools you use.
Are you a flat iron, regular curler, or clipless curler kind of gal? Tell me in the comments!
