Review of: GHD curve classic wave wand
I've always been a straighteners kinda gal, for a very long time I've been using my straighteners to achieve natural, loose looking curls but recently I started to notice that my hair was being pulled out a lot and they were generally leaving my hair looking dry and unloved. I've never been a huge fan of curling wands as quite frankly they scare the life out of me (so many finger burns.. shudders). I then stumbled across the GHD website and discovered that they had a brand new range of curling wands coming out which immediately got me excited, and then they somehow made their way onto my Christmas list. I had a look at them all individually but the one that really stood out to me was the Classic Wave Wand. It is the only one from the range that is specifically designed to create waves rather than a curl which I love as I'm all about that everyday, natural look.

GHD tri zone technology close up review

The classic wave wand has a very comfortable 38mm – 26mm oval shaped barrel with a protective cool tip on the end to protect your fingers from any nasty burns.
I dread to think of the damage I've caused my hair over the years, so thankfully the GHD Curve features tri-zone technology to ensure healthier looking hair due to the barrel keeping at the optimum curling temperature of 185°C without causing heat damage.
An extremely handy feature of the range includes an automatic sleep mode after 30 minutes without use, so if you're in a rush to work, school or college and it completely slips your mind or you're just generally worried that you didn't turn them off, no worries, GHD have you covered. Genius really, right?

I was very lucky to receive the classic wave wand for Christmas, and oh my gosh I love it. The packaging It came in is beautiful, being presented in a rose gold limited edition roll up bag (who doesn't love rose gold?!). The actual wand itself is just lovely. It's very sleek with a matte black finish and silver details along either side of the barrel which I personally love. Admittedly I found it slightly hard to get used to at first after years of using a straightener, but after a few days it was like I had been using it forever. The wand is designed to create deep, Hollywood waves but I find that starting the curl off from the roots of my hair creates a lovely, natural wave that actually lasts all day which is very rare for me as my hair is so thick and heavy. Overall i'm extremely pleased with this wand and I think it will be in my life for a very long time.

I'd love to know your thoughts on the GHD curve range in the comments below!

    1. ah thank you so much! I wish it looked healthy all of the time, it's only when I use this wand that it looks shiny and cared for haha!x

  2. I love my GHDs and I really want to try these curlers! I just need to figure out which one looks best!

    1. It's a tough decision! I think it just depends on what sort of look you want to go for, Fleur De Force has a good post on all of the range if you want a better look! it's such a great tool to have though and worth the investment :) x

  3. Ooo I'm so jealous! I really want to try these! I've got the GHD Eclipse but haven't tried curling my hair with them yet - I did my mums for her with them but think a curling wand would be easier to do my own with! Think these will be on my 'to get' list at some point this year :)
