Video Alert! How To Curl Hair with a Wand - The 1-1/2 Wrap Technique

Friday, 09 March 2018 22:36


It’s all about organic texture these days and a thermal wand is the way to create loose tousled waves easily and quickly. Hair icon Sam Villa shares a simple 1-1Ž2 wrap technique that’s a staple behind the chair, yet easy enough for consumers to do at home too.

Tips for using a 1” wand to create volume at the base and texture and movement from midshaft to ends:

– Work from the bottom up for more control.
– Section size is determined by the amount of curl wanted – for more control, use a small section, for a larger more organic wave, and use a larger section.
– Always use a thermal heat protectant to protect hair when using thermal tools, spray Redken iron shape 11 to protect and add hold to the style.
– Use a Sam Villa Artist Series 2-in-1 Marcel Curling Iron and Wand 1” – push button to remove the handle to just use the wand.
– Work back and away from the head to create movement away from the face
– After hair is wrapped 1-1Ž2 times around the wand, hold the ends with fingers and slide wand back and forth diagonally to create soft movement from midshaft to ends.
– Wraps can vary in direction to vary texture and movement through the hair.
– Work Redken No Blow Dry Just Right Cream through with fingers spread wide to reduce tension on hair and separate curl without disturbing the integrity of the texture.

The result is a shattered disheveled texture with lots of movement,” adds Villa.
