Last month when we were in Calgary, as tradition holds, we attended a dinner theater. This time, the production was based on the 80’s hit Flashdance and while it took some quick tutoring from me for my kids to get up to speed on the storyline, it was an awesome trip back in time. The lead character even had those gorgeous skinny curls!
As it turns out, tight curls and beachy waves are back and bigger than ever. The new WAHL Skinny Curler can give you a permed hair look in minutes, without the hours in the salon (and let’s all remember for a moment, that terrible perm solution scent, guh!) The curler’s “chopstick-style” barrel design creates long-lasting curls that hold up from brunch to a girls’ night out without the hassle of restyling throughout the day. These curls are strong and powerful, ladies!
My hair is pretty straight after blow drying, so I was curious to see how bouncy I could get my curls with the WAHL Skinny Curler. The tool heats up to 215˚C/420˚F and you can start curling in less than 60 seconds. The ceramic coated barrel helps protect hair from damage and features a cool touch tip, plus it includes a heat resistant glove for safe and easy styling. I found the chopstick sized barrel interesting and a big change from the barrel style curlers I’ve become accustomed to, but it was easy to use right at the start. You simply wind your hair around the barrel, hold for a bit, and voila – curls like crazy!
Whoa baby do I ever have curls! You can keep the curls tight of course, or run your hands through them a bit for beachy waves. A spray of product helps keep them controlled too. Because the chopstick barrel is smaller, it does take longer to do your hair, especially if it’s long and thick like mine. If you have layers and a shorter cut, oh my flashdance, the looks you’ll be able to create!
