Autumn is upon us now and the nights are coming in early and this time of year we often start to think about switching up our style and pulling out the winter warmers, but this doesn’t mean we have to not think about switching up our hair too and creating some amazing looks with some simple styling tools.
So lets work with big cosy jumpers = big hair! I recently got sent this Lee Stafford Chopstick styler to give me the ultimate retro curls!
Simple in design and in the trademark Lee Stafford hot pink colour this wand stands out from the crowd and really is as simple as simply switching on, heating up and away you go creating those retro curls and big hair in a big way!
This wand has a powerful 200ºC styling temperature that heats up super quickly by simply switching the button across and wait a few moment for the wand to heat up. The barrel itself is ceramic coated to help give healthy smooth silky curls and a durable swivel cord to enable you to switch up the direction of your corkscrew curls!
This wand impressed me from the moment I started using it and the intensity and tightness of the curls is absolutely amazing. . This wand would work well on a long bob, midi hair to great lengths. Obviously the more hair you have the longer it would take to achieve your curly hair look but actually the process from curly to straight took me less than 30 minutes!
The first time using it I decided to use it with my own natural hair straightened to try and start with sleek hair to give a smoother more defined curl. And wow the volume that these curls gave me was intense!
You can either curl your hair from holding the wand from the top or bottom but either way its god to change the direction of your waves to help you achieve a natural bouncy curl that offers texture.
Usually after I curl my hair I never used to brush it though as I always worry all my hard work will be undone. However I discovered that if you want softer waves that are full of volume then brushing your hair through gently really gives a much softer more natural look.
I have been so delighted with this No 1 best selling skinny wand – the Lee Stafford Chopstick wand and I would confidently 100% recommend buying one of these if you are considering buying a wand to achieve full on volume retro curls. It retails at £19.99 which is a super affordable to way to switch up your look and make a statement, perfect for the upcoming party season! Click here to shop
