Glam Hatter feat. Vodana Glamwave Curling Iron - Tutorial + Review

Guess who was an idiot and forgot to take pictures? Me
So enjoy these screengrabs(and the actual tutorial too)



 So like I explained in the video, a lot of looks inspired by the mad hatter are very blown out and colourful, which makes sense considering his appeareance. But I wanted to do a more "wearable" rendition of the Mad Hatter. Something bright and cool, but still simple I guess.

Now onto the review!


I was sent this beautiful thing by Charis to try out, so shoutout to them for being lovely as always.
Now before anyone says it, yes my hair IS naturally curly already, why would I need a curling iron??
Let me tell you, natural curls are finicky as hell, so it doesn't hurt to sometimes run a curling iron through just to get a more uniform look. Also, this iron being 40mm, gives me looser and bigger curls.

I'm not a curling iron connoisseur, but I can tell you that this thing does the job, and it does it well. I like the idea of having heat settings, so you can decide how much heat you hair will take. You can probably use the heat settings to achieve tighter/looser styles, but I don't really know enough of that to go into detail. I also think it's a really good size, my hair is long AF but I managed well so yay!!

In conclusion, I'd definitely recommend the Vodana Glamwave Curling Iron.
If you'd like your own, you can purchase it from my Charis store here.(*) You can also find more info and fun stuff about this curling iron there. 

Thank you for reading, see you next time!
