Ever curled your hair only to be left with lifeless locks pointing in all directions? We get it, curling can be overwhelming when you don’t really know what you’re doing. But we’re here to change that!
So, should you use a wand or tongs? What direction do you curl in? Let us answer your curling Q’s and explain how to use curling tongs for professional curls that last all day long.
Curling Wand vs Curling Tongs
Believe it or not, “curling wand” isn’t just a fancy way of saying “curling tongs”, there is a difference!
Curling tongs include a clamp, whereas a wand doesn’t. This can impact the overall style and size of your curls, so it’s important to know what look you want before starting.
Why Use Curling Tongs?
Curling tongs are great for all hair lengths and textures, whereas wands are better for longer lengths. There are so many types with different clamps and barrel sizes that there’s one for everybody. They can create relaxed waves like a wand, or tight curls for a more glam look.
Expert Tip: While tongs can create the perfect curls, you can still curl your hair in other ways. Check out these guides to see how else you can curl locks without tongs:
