I've been seeing a lot of these new curling irons that you just wrap your hair around and there is no clip....whats the advantage of this versus a traditional curling iron? Is it worth it to buy one?
Just wanted to update you all - I went ahead and bought a remington pearl curling wand, the smaller one...its AMAZING! The curls are SO much better than my old clamp curling iron. Also, it is SO easy and fool proof and I get perfect results literally every time. I HIGHLY recommend it! yay!
It's COMPLETELY worth it, I had a curling iron and it left dents in my hair and it also limits your styles. I then bought a karmin g3 clipless curling iron and it was much faster to curl and they lasted longer too. It takes a bit of getting used to and I used the beginners heat-proof glove for the first couple of times...but after you know how it's done it's way faster and easier than a clip curling iron. I got the karmin one because of the heating and the tourmaline ceramic barrel, which apparently is faster and safer for hair.
I've never needed the wands--I just start about a few inches from the roots and slowly curl as I go down. You want to keep it loose to avoid dents and always leave a few inches at the bottom uncurled (to get a more natural and less ringlety look). I keep the iron upright and it works great.
I had a curling iron and took off the clamp and the results were not that great. It's not the same I don't think. Went to Sephora and bought an actual curling wand and wow, better results and long lasting!!
Nope! You can literally just remove the clamp from yours if you want to try it
The only curling iron I've ever had is clipless. I didn't go out of my way to get a clipless one - I got it at a Costco roadshow. It's an Enzo Milano and I'm so used to using this kind that I don't think I'd like one with a clip. I'm thinking about getting one with a smaller barrel and they're not that easy to find. Good to know that I can remove the clip.
