Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curling Wand

If you know me in real life, you'll know that I don't really do anything to my hair. Even for weddings and special occasions, I keep my hair straight, with maybe the exception of tying up half my hair. I like to think of it as being minimal and simple. But really, I'm just not very good at using hair styling tools. 

Over the years, I've come to own a flat iron and a curling iron and pretty much only use the flat iron. I've tried many times to master using the curling iron, but I can't seem to work out using the clamp and getting those perfect curls and waves that YouTubers and bloggers so effortlessly create. 

I recently had the opportunity to try out the Irresistible Me Sapphire 8-in-1 Complete Curling Wand*. I've always wanted to try out a curling wand, but couldn't bring myself to shell out the money for a curling wand that includes various attachments. So, how did this one fare with a hair noobie like myself?

First off, this set comes with 8 interchangeable ceramic, tourmaline infused barrels to create many different curls and waves of your choice. Also included is a glove, roll-out case and a heat-resistant stand. The 8 barrels are more than all I'll ever need to curl my hair! I personally would really only use the widest barrel since I like soft, relaxed waves.

For such a beginner with hair styling tools, I found this wand to be quite user friendly. It's easy to change the barrels, the cord swivels so you can curl your hair from any angle and the wand heats up within seconds. The digital display also tells you when the tool is ready to use when it lights up.

Below are before and after pictures of my uncurled and curled after. You can see that my hair is naturally very straight, with some wave due to the layers in my hair. For this post, I used the 32mm barrel. Also, excuse my makeup-less face in the after photo! I was testing out the wand after work and I like to remove all my makeup right when I get home. Side note: it's crazy how much of an impact makeup can have on how your face looks with just a bit of makeup.

Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curling Wand Before and After

I'm still getting the hang of using the wand, but it probably took around 15-20 minutes for me to curl all my hair! Which is crazy! I have a ridiculous amount of hair. Even the hairstylist at my maid of honour's wedding was passively complaining about how much hair she had to curl. Also, my hair doesn't hold a curl very well. I have to spray A LOT of hairspray and texturizing spray just to get my hair to hold anything for even a few hours. But with this wand, my hair somehow holds the curl by itself for 4-5 hours. You can also see the frizz in my hair is tamed after being curled.

And can you see how much volume my hair has? I find my hair is pretty flat, so any kind of volume in my hair makes a huge difference.

So, if you're looking to purchase a curling wand that does it all, try this one out! It regularly sells for $199, but it's currently selling for $149. For $149, I think that's a pretty awesome price for essentially 8 curling wands. If you're not looking for a curling wand, Irresistible Me also offers a flat iron and a great selection of hair extensions.
