I was recently sent this Amika curling wand to try and I must admit—it sat unopened on my desk for a while. Many of you know I am deeply wedded to my beloved Sedu curling wand. I wasn’t looking for a new styler. My almost-four year-old Sedu and I had settled into a very comfortable relationship, thank you very much. But, I suppose, like all good relationships, I realized there was room for improvement. And thankfully, unlike a marriage, three isn’t a crowd among hot tools.
This tourmaline-inflused, clip-free ceramic curling wand gives me great quality waves like my Sedu. It’s a super high quality iron with a nice digital temperature read. But what I really love is that you can change the barrel size to achieve different looks. In some ways, this wand arrived just in time because I’ve been craving bigger, looser waves, and the 1.25″ Glam Goddess barrel is my answer. Did I mention the interchangeable barrels have names? The starter Switch Kit comes with the most popular 1″ Hollywood Vixen and the three additional barrels are the aforementioned 1.25″ Glam Goddess, the 1.5″ Supermodel Allure and the tapered 1″Beach Bombshell. All available for $30 each. Endless options, one cord. LOVE it.
P.S. Watch the quick how-to videos for each wand…they’re so clear and helpful.
