In my humble (but always correct) opinion, the three best inventions of mankind are fake tan, tinned cocktails and curling wands. Don’t try to argue with me; the wheel has nothing on these three absolute life essentials. Try as I might, I can never quite master flawless waves with my ghds, which is why a curling wand has been an absolutely essential of mine for a good few years now. To avoid my hair always looking too samey, I’ve tried a few different wands over the years of varying shapes and thicknesses (I refuse to say girth in a blog post)(apart from then). But the days of buying multiple wands is now firmly behind me, as I now own THIS. The Sapphire 8-in-1 Curling Wand* from Irresistable Me is, as the name would suggest, basically 8 wands in one. How exciting?!
The Sapphire base comes with 8 detachable wands that can be switched around to create an endless amount of different looks (or, y’know, 8 – but that’s still mega impressive). These range from the really thick barrel for creating big, loose waves, to the teeny tiny wand for this seasons’s must-have chopstick curl. There’s also a bubble-like wand for for disheveled, mismatching waves and a few different conical shapes too to mix up the effect.
The wand’s really easy to use, as the different heads lock in and out easily, and the cord is a 360 degree one so you don’t get tangled up (which, ahem, might have happened to me once or twice in the past). There are also some handy features to satisfy any health and safety officers you might have wandering around your house – the temperature is adjustable so you can choose a lower heat if needed, the tips of each wand are plastic so they don’t get too hot and there’s even a special heat-resistant glove included.
The Sapphire 8-in-1 Wand comes in a roll-up carry case, which has compartments for each of the 8 heads so you can take them all with you. This makes it perfect for taking on holiday, when normally you have to make the decision between which hair tools to take (a real Sophie’s choice, I’m sure you’ll agree).
One issue worth bearing in mind if you’re ordering from the UK is that this does come with an American plug so you’ll need to buy an adaptor. These can be picked up for a few quid so it’s no real drama as long as you’re aware. Also I don’t know of anything quite like this on the UK market, so it’s definitely worth it for the amount of different styles you can create.
I took the below photo after using one of the conical wand heads, but I’m planning to try out the corkscrew curl in the next week or two and so will include a full tutorial then. Overall I LOVE this wand and definitely recommend giving it a go. The Irresistable Me Sapphire 8-in-1 Wand can be bought online at that there link, and is currently $139 in the sale.
