I hate to admit that most days my hair is in a messy bun or ponytail. But it’s the “MomLife” and I am okay with it. However, there are days when I am determined to make the time to fix my hair and feel a little better about myself! It’s amazing how taking 20+ minutes to do your hair and make up can perk up your mood and energy for the day!
I have always loved trying new styles on my hair. They don’t always work out the way I envisioned, but it’s always fun trying new things and seeing if they work. I had heard about the Lee Stafford Chopstick STYLER Ceramic Curling Wand and the adorable ringlet curls made me throwback to when I was a little girl and wanted curly hair so badly! (We always want the hair type we don’t have, don’t we???) I was excited to be able to try this new tool. My fingers were crossed I could make the wand do what I wanted!
The Lee Stafford Chopstick STYLER Ceramic Curling Wand is very skinny. Think pinky finger size. It comes with a heat protecting glove which is absolutely necessary! You think you won’t burn your fingers… But not worth the risk! I started with my normal, blown straight hair. I don’t use much in products but hair spray and blow my hair out with my fingers and a regular brush with my head upside down.
I worked in small sections, pinning up most of my hair and working layer by layer with the curling wand. It did take a bit of practice to get the rhythm of gathering the right section of the hair and twisting it around the wand. It is not like a normal curling iron, so be patient as you learn how to use it. Definitely an advantage working on the bottom layers first which aren’t seen as much!
My first attempt turned out rather fun! The curls were more kinky, but I liked the overall look. I am totally good with big hair! Don’t mind my roots which need a LOT of attention. It will eventually happen….
Since having babies, my hair has changed a bit. It now gets quite a bit of wave, especially the bottom layers of my hair. I haven’t been able to get the curls to cooperate all over my head. The Chopstick Curling Wand does an amazing job of working with my natural waves to turn them into curls. The next attempt I scrunched my hair while blowing dry and encouraged my waves to curl up as much as possible. I then went in the the curling wand and wrapped random pieces which made the process a bit faster and more natural.
Overall, I love having a new and fun way to do my hair and will definitely continue playing around with it! I can’t wait until the girls are old enough to let me play with their hair! They are finally okay with me brushing their hair, but still don’t want any ponytails or headbands in their hair for more than 5 minutes. (Sigh…Oh, well…)
