Sometimes we want things that aren’t necessarily in our best interests. An extra glass of wine when we’ve had enough. An extra bite of dessert when we’re beyond full. Hitting the snooze button when we’re already running late. But we do it anyway, right? That’s sort of how I feel about the new Bed Head® Curlipops™ curling irons. They are so enticing, like candy (minus the calories, thankfully), and their unique barrel shapes help create fun texture, loose curls and waves.
First, the options.
1” Tourmaline Ceramic Reverse Conical Styling Iron (blue raspberry color) – Creates tight curls at the roots and looser curls towards the bottom.
1” Tourmaline Ceramic Hourglass Styling Iron (candy apple red color) With this you can have both with loose curls and the ends and tight curls in the middle. Lots of volume!
1” Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Iron ((tangerine color) This wand is a more “traditional” shape — loose or tight curls, your choice!
I like these. But here’s the thing. I’m scared of them. These are not what you would call for beginners with clipless irons. I’m actually questioning it as an “experienced” clipless curler. I know….because I’m currently sporting a perfect circular burn on my inner arm. There is no protective tip at the end — it’s HOT. There is a glove, yes. But my accident occurred because I bumped the iron with my hip while reaching for something and it pivoted left and hit the arm that was reaching. But, you guys. Imagine if I did that to my face or neck or hand?! Ahh!
For what it is worth, the Curlipops do create some amazing curls. I used the Hourglass wand and aside from this wicked burn, I really like the waves. Just know what you’re getting yourself into with these and BE careful.
