Curl Sticks Rock!


Today we are going to talk a little bit about a new trend, one that we here at evoke are really excited about. Its called a curl stick, and has pioneered a new way of creating easy, quick, beautiful flowing wave! More importantly, you don't end up with those ugly bends that you get from using a curling iron. It also creates much less of a curl effect and more of a loose sexy wave.... exactly what stylists and clients are looking for right now. The wave we want looks a lot like Kate Winslet`s in this runway shot.

The sticks are incredibly easy to use, in that all you need to do is wind a section of hair around it in a spiral. The stick will heat up and allow for the hair to mould to the rod in the shape you set! its that simple.  In our salons we are currently really attached to one stick in particular, the TIGI Bedhead Curl Stick. We love this stick because of its easy to use digital controls that have a simple on (green) and off (red) button system. It is also equipped with a temperature dial making it easy to set it to your desired temperature.

Another feature that we love about these sticks, is that they come with a little piece of plastic at they're tip. This makes it possible to place your finger on its end after you've wrapped the curl around the wand. This will allow you to support the stick while you set each sections curl.  

The Best: No. 8: TIGI Hardcore Curl Stick, $99.95

Make sure if you didn't get this awesome tool in your stocking this year you pick one up as soon as possible, they will be the difference between a nice smooth wave and a curl that's too tight and awkward looking.

  1. I'd love to e-book an appointment because I now live out of town for school and can't afford long-distance calls. Is there any way I can email to book an appointment?
