Does Bed Head Curlipops Spiral Styling Iron give me yummy hair?

1980s-hairBack in the ’80’s we never went anywhere without meticulously curling-ironed hair (the wooden dummy was optional). Then in the ’90’s we wouldn’t go near a curling iron. These days, I don’t just have one curling iron, I have many – each giving me a different version of the long, beachy curls that I love. My philosophy is I can never have too many curling irons, so I was happy to add a new type of curling to the mix when Bed Head sent me their BED HEAD CURLIPOPS 1″ TOURMALINE CERAMIC SPIRAL STYLING IRON ($24.99) to test.  BED HEAD CURLIPOPS 1" TOURMALINE CERAMIC SPIRAL STYLING IRONBED HEAD CURLIPOPS 1" TOURMALINE CERAMIC SPIRAL STYLING IRON
The packaging is super cute – while the wand is a spiral wand, the package looks like a lollipop. Very clever. What makes this spiral curling iron different is that it has no clamp, so you use your fingers to hold the hair in place. I have to admit, I was a bit flummoxed at first…there was a learning curve to figuring out how to curl hair without a clamp. Luckily, a glove is included so there was no danger of burning my fingers.BED HEAD CURLIPOPS 1" TOURMALINE CERAMIC SPIRAL STYLING IRON
I eventually figured out I needed to section my hair, then take about a 1 inch section, twist it into a rope, and wrap it around the wand, holding the end in place with my gloved hand. At first it seemed more time intensive than a traditional iron, but then it got super easy and didn’t take any more time at all. The big payoff is that there is no ‘crimp’ from a clamp, so the curls are true throughout.

I also found that this iron creates those curls very quickly – faster than any other iron I have. And the curls last all day long without the help of hairspray. In fact, my latest bout with the Curlipop gave me curls that lasted for three days!
Here are the specs:
  • Tourmaline ceramic technology on barrel
  • High heat up to 400 F
  • On/Off switch
  • Dual voltage
  • Cool tip
  • Includes heat protective glove
  • Clamp free wrap and go design
  • Tangle free swivel cord

So, while it took me about half a head of hair to get used to the curling iron the first time I used it, I ended up getting the hang of it and definitely loving the results. If you want yummy hair, you can pick up the BED HEAD CURLIPOPS 1″ TOURMALINE CERAMIC SPIRAL STYLING IRON at Ulta.  – Lisa
