I’ve been playing about with the Babyliss Soft Waves styler for about a month now and am finally able to let you have my thoughts!
The soft waves styler is a large barrelled curling wand. It doesn’t have a clamp, (and personally I prefer a clamp), it has adjustable temperatures, up to 210 degrees and also comes with a protective heat mat and a protective glove so you don’t burn your fingers when wrapping your hair around the barrel.
The large barrel of the wand means that this won’t ever give you curly hair, it is, as the name suggests, for anyone who wants “soft waves” and this is exactly what it delivers.
It heats up really fast and then you can get to work. I really struggle with any wands that don’t have clamps as I always manage to burn my fingers even with the gloves and because the ends of my hair are tapered, rather than blunt, it can be hard to hold the ends against the wand.
That’s just me though, I’ve always been completely inept when it comes to hair styling.
It took me a while to get the knack of this with my unruly hair too, but eventually I realised that before I waved each section I needed to spritz with heat spray or styling spray, sounds simple, and obvious, as most of you will do this as standard, but my hair doesn’t get styled much…like I say, I’m inept!
Anyway, once I’d got it all sorted I managed to get some good waves going on and if soft waves is your thing then you’d do very well to try this out. It’s perfect.
The Babyliss Boutique Soft Waves is available from Very where it’ll cost you £25. Really quite cheap compared to lots of the hair stylers on the market now!
