I recently posted my Valentines day FOTD (HERE!) where I had my hair in large curls. I created them using the Babyliss Volume waves tong and I thought I would review it for you as I think its an amazing hair tool!
This was something I had wanted for a long time,as I love large natural looking curls. At Christmas I got a bit of money and I was finally able to purchase it.
It is a 38mm nano titanium ceramic coated barrel, the large barrel means bigger more natural looking curls! It plugs straight into the wall and its temperature can go up to 200°C, with 5 digital heat settings for all hair types. It also has a swivel cord so no more getting tangled up as your styling.
Styling is so easy I just section my hair as I would normally when curling and then holding the barrel downwards rap the hair around it. There is a clip attachment to grab the hair but I never I never use it. When its been in the tong long enough just pull the tong up releasing the curl. I then repeat, curling all the hair making sure I curl the front section away from the face (as it falls nicer that way). When I've completed each section I give it a quick spray with hairspray. I also like to mess around with the placement of the curls.
There are two ways in which I use the tongs:
1. Defined Curls:
Brush the hair beforehand then section and use the tongs as well as hairspray, then do not brush after curling to keep the definition.
2. Natural Bouncy Waves:
The same as 1 but when you've finished and the hair is cooled comb through with a wide toothed comb to take away some the hold from the hairspray, which softens the look creating a more natural curl, loosing some definition but leaving a great bouncy wave
This is definitely a great hair styling tool for anyone wanted to create amazing curls it is also reasonably priced. I got mine from Argos (HERE!)
What do you think of the babyliss curling tong?
