Beautiful soft vintage curls with Verge Ribbon Wand

I recently reviewed the Verge One Bubble Wand - loved how it gave me beautiful round curls.

And then I reviewed the Spiral Wand, a magnificent option for ‘S’ waves:

One more excellent texture wand possibility is the Ribbon Wand ($120) for looser, vintage-looking curls.  I know there is a Verge One Wand for you, read on to find out which one(s) you need.

The Ribbon Wand has the same great features as the other texture wands by Verge One.

The Ribbon Wand

It has Ceramic NB Technology that heats the hair evenly and leaves it healthy and manageable. It instantly heats to 410 degrees, and has the same ‘cool tip’ that makes the wand easy to use. Plus it has the same tangle-free 360° swivel cord.

The unique shape of the Ribbon Wand

What makes it different is the shape of the barrel.  The Bubble Wand has a series of ‘bubbles’ that give the hair a rounder curl. The Spiral Wand has spirals through the barrel that give the hair an S-shaped wave.  And the Ribbon Wand has a distinctive flatter barrel, giving hair a ribbon-shaped wave.

same clip, different shaped barrel

See how the barrel is sort of flat?  It creates an interesting, flatter-shaped curl than the other wands, so it can either be a curl or else it can be brushed out into more of a wave.

and another view for you

The clip on the bottom looks the same as the other Verge texture wands. It’s a short clip, you put the end of the hair section into it then roll the hair away from the face. The only difference I found was that the Ribbon Wand seems to clip a little looser, which isn’t a big deal unless you have thin or extremely fine hair. If you have either of those issues, then go for the Spiral Wand. Any of the three wands work well for shorter hair, although those with very short layers wouldn’t be happy. You need to be able to wind your hair around the wands to get the effects.

After waiting about 30 seconds, you release the clip and get a curl that looks like this:

You can leave the curl as is, or you can run your fingers through the curl for a more dramatic, piecey look.

Sometimes I like to run my brush through the curls, which really gives a rather vintage looking wave that is soft and pretty.

It probably takes me about 10 to 15 minutes to style my hair with the Ribbon Wand. I separate out sections and pin them up, then curl working from the bottom sections up.

While the other two texture wand options give a tighter curl, I love the looser, more casual wave from the Ribbon Wand.

I love my Ribbon Wand!

So which one is my favorite, the Bubble Wand, Spiral Wand, or Ribbon Wand? That is like asking which one of my children is my favorite. They are all unique, and they all get the same amount of love from me. It’s truly fantastic to have such a wonderful variety from which to choose. I feel very lucky to have all three texture wands, and if it fits your budget, investing in all three would be something to consider.   – Lisa

The perfect “S” wave with Verge Spiral Wand

Every once in a while, something comes along that is a total game changer for me. I wore my mid-back length hair perfectly straight for a long time – I would blow it dry straight, and if I wanted to really get serious I would follow that with a flat-iron. Well, Verge One has given me a new outlook with their ‘texture’ wands.  I previously reviewed the Bubble Wand, which you can read HERE, and I will be reviewing the Ribbon Wand in a future post. But today I want to tell you all about my current love, the VERGE™ Spiral Wand™.

The latest craze in hair styles is the ‘S Wave’.  I’m not talking about these S waves:

PSWAVESI am talking about THESE S waves:

The S wave is the latest trend that you will find all kinds of celebrities embracing, like Sarah Jessica Parker –

You certainly don’t need a stylist to get fabulous S waves like these stars.  All you need is a Verge One Spiral Wand ($120). All of Verge’s texture wands have Ceramic NG™ (Nano Gold) Technology, which means perfect, even heat every time that really locks in the curl.  When I use a Verge texture wand, the curls last for three days with no problem. It also means that hair moisture is ‘locked’ in, so there’s no heat damage like with other styling tools.

The Verge Spiral Wand

What else is great about the Spiral Wand? It heats up instantly to 410 degrees. It has a ‘cool tip’ at the top of the curler that stays cooler so it’s easy to use. And it has a tangle-free 360° swivel cord.

looks complicated but it’s so easy!

It could not be easier to use this wand. In fact, I think it’s even easier than using a regular curling iron. The clip is small and at the bottom of the wand:

See the clip?

You put the end of a section of hair into the clip, the roll the wand away from your face. Your hair automatically curls around the wand and goes in between the spirals.

Then, just hold the wand for a minute or so. I find the longer I hold the wand, the stronger the curl, although you never need more than about 45 seconds even for very thick coarse hair.

And right after curling.

Then, release the clip, and voila – a gorgeous, perfect curl. To get that S wave, just run your fingers through the curl and here’s what you get:

Gorgeous!!

It works perfectly every time.  Here is my daughter Marina’s hair before we use the Spiral Wand:

waaaay better than a spiral perm!!

I can’t even tell you how much I love my texture wands from Verge, and the Spiral Wand is exactly on trend right now.  Is it worth the $120? YES.  Yes, yes, yes, and about a thousand more affirmatives.

Not exactly Sarah, Taylor, or Emma…but it still gives me great hair!

I absolutely love my Spiral Wand and I can’t recommend it highly enough.  You need one of these!!!  – Lisa
