How to Curl Your Hair with a Wand
Okay, so after writing up articles on hairstyle changes that make you look younger and this ultimate guide for growing out your hair, I asked you to tell me what other hair articles you’re interested in. Several of you said tutorials on using a hair wand!
After some research, I found several lovely ladies who have excellent hair tutorial videos using NuMe hair wands. I watched a couple of them and then used their tips. Guess what? They’re hair geniuses! 🙂
Here are my favorite ones:
Here are the tips I pulled from their videos that I’ve used myself:
- Use the wand on freshly washed hair after you’ve dried it (With a good dryer! Not all hair dryers are the same). The NuMe wands are such high quality that your hair will hold the curl until you wash it.
- Spray hair with a heat protectant spray to help protect your hair from damage
- Use the glove that comes with your wand to prevent burns
- Section your hair into layers and curl section by section ( I use croc clips)
- Hold the wand upside down to curl
- Curl from root to tip
- Brush through curls to soften for loose curls (I started doing this instead of using my fingers and I LOVE the results it gives me)
- Curl away from your face
- Lift your hair up at the root while curling to give it some added volume
- Put a little hair cream on the ends of your hair to give them some moisture (I started doing this and it makes my hair look so much better!)
- Set it with hairspray if needed
I love that curls and waves are a big trend right now. I also love that they look good on women of any age. Here are a few examples of celebrities sporting the curly hair trend recently.

I’ve actually been looking for a curler to help define my curls I’ll have to check it out. Thanks !
I think you’ll love NuMe Ellie! I threw away another wand I purchased at Target. Just doesn’t compare. 🙂
That wand looks awesome and I love the price! 😉 I really need to work on making looser curls. Mine always turn out so tight.
You definitely can’t beat the price right now! I used to wear my curls really tight and it took me a few tries to get the hang of it. But now I only have to curl my hair after I wash it, about ever 3 days. I love it!
Looks awesome! I love soft curls like this makes! Thanks for sharing 🙂
You’re welcome Cara! Thanks for stopping by.
I started using a wand a while back and instantly fell in love!! These tips were even helpful for me and I’ve had a wand for 2 years now!
I’m so glad they were helpful 🙂
Love this! My friend has the PERFECT wand that was really long so we could curl our long hair, and I haven’t been able to find one just like hers. Def the best way to curl though 🙂
I agree! 🙂
Thanks for sharing these tips! I wish my hair held a curl better, it never lasts more than a couple hours!
My hair has always held curl pretty well, but I’ve heard girls with really thin hair say using a wand helped them with that problem. I only curl my hair now every 3 days, after I wash it. The wand helps it stay curled for days. I love it!
I cannot lie, I’ve always been terrified of these because I’m afraid to burn my hand! Thanks to your tips, I might try it now!
They do get hot! I won’t use it without the glove.
OK, I totally need to get a wand. I still have an old school curling iron. Ha!
I still use my old school curling iron from time to time. 🙂
Great post. I am gonna have to get a wand!
Great tips! I love how the internet offers so many tutorials too. Your point about not all dryers being equal is SO TRUE! I’ve shelled out more money because it saves me so much drying time.
I’ve had so many dryers that have sucked my hair into them. No good!
Thank you for sharing this! I’ve been loyal to my curling iron for years, but I’ve always wondered about a wand!
I was loyal to my curling iron for 20 years (or more?). I love the look the wand gives me. 🙂
I love my wand and have been doing a lot of the same things that you listed. I much rather the wand than a curling iron. This is so helpful and is a GREAT list of tips!!
Can you help me decide what size I should purchase? My hair is on the short to medium side. I don’t want tight curls just be achy waives.
Hi Cindy, My daughter uses the 19mm and she has really short hair. That’s the size I usually use as well and never get tight curls, but more of the beachy waves you’re wanting. I think that one would be your best bet! It also depends on how much hair your curl. Do larger sections for more of a wave. Hope that helps!
I have the NUME wand and it’s awesome!
Isn’t it great?!
I’ve been trying to get the look using my old curling iron as a wand and it works but I bet the wand works better! Great price for it too. Thanks!
It is a great price Marlynn!
Great tips! I want to get a curling wand!
I think you’ll love it Heather! 🙂
I curl my hair often and have a similar wand. For some reason I am a lot better at curling the right side of my head than the left. The struggle!
For me it’s my right side! It drives me crazy! 🙂
How did you know I need a tutorial like this?! My mom just started using a wand and her hair looks amazing. I’ve been too scared to try!
I hope this helps! 🙂
I love wand curling for my hair but since I cut it I haven’t felt like it looks good because it just becomes poofy. I think it’s because my wand size is small. I’ll have to give this one a shot 🙂 Thanks for the medium hair video tutorial too!
I’ve been wanting to order a NuMe wand for awhile now! All my favorite YouTubers use it. I may have to take advantage of this awesome deal!
They are fantastic. 🙂
