Toni and Guy Reverse Conical Wand

reverse conical wand tony and guy

When I looked at the shape of the Toni and Guy reverse conical wand* for the first time, I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to like the curl it produced. I imagined tiny little spirals at the root which gradually turned bigger at the ends. I am obsessed with hair electronics, I will be shocked to find anyone with more than me! So I was quite keen to see how the curls with the reverse wand would pan out.

People always ask me how I curl my hair when I have it in a natural wave and this is basically how I do it with all curling wands or irons… unless I am doing a retro wave.

I find it easier to do in 3 sections – bottom to top. I do the bottom layer first and scoop up the rest of the hair in a clip or a hairband.

I bring my hair around to the front and do one side and then the other side. I work from back to front and with the reverse wand I wrap around and hold for 8 seconds. Then I chuck the curled piece behind my back and get on with the next section.

For a natural curl I alternate the curl direction. One piece wrapped towards the face, the next away from the face. If you curl in the same direction, it looks more like a classic, retro curl.

I then do the middle section and the top section the same way…. quick and easy peasy.

Once the hair has cooled down I comb through my hair with my fingers to separate. Then finish off by spraying through some Tony and Guy salt spray.

The wand gets really hot so don’t leave your hair there too long. I made the mistake with my first attempt and the curls were far too tight.

Overall I am really pleased with the waves from the reverse conical wand, it will be added to my regular circuit of hair electrical goods. The curl really holds and gives that ‘lived in look’, so I don’t have bother with my hair for a couple of days. Hooray! The messier it gets the better.

    Stunning as always, I never seem to find the time to do anything other than quickly straighten mine. Curls sadly don’t hold either!

      It takes the same time for me now to curl as it did when I straightened. This wand is great for hold x

      Its the opposite directions and the scrunching with the sea salt spray that gets the volume. haha yes any extra length and the hair would be too long to wrap around πŸ™‚

    ooh i’ve never seen a wand like that before but i suppose if it does turn out weird you could aways curl the other way. love the results though! makes me kind of regret chopping my lengths off.. you have such gorgeous hair!

    You look gorgeous. I’ve heard of this wand, hopefully, I’m going to try it. I love Toni and Guy, they are really amazing. I have a bunch of products from there and am always on the lookout for more. Recently Toni and Guy also launched a spa in our country, I can’t wait to visit that. I love your blog and I was looking for a button but I couldn’t find one. Let me know when you get one so that I could grab it because I adore your blog. You’re a great inspiration to me:)
