I want tasselled, beach, boho curls for the wedding like this:
My hairdresser said that it would be better to use straighteners as curls using a wand don’t last very long – is that true?
Can you get boho waves with straighteners?

linnylou_88: I use either. It depends if your wand can reach the same high temp as the straightener (mine does). Also, a thermal spray is good to use and make sure to “set” your curls after by clipping them up so they cool before you shake them out. Then set with a flexible hold hairspray and don’t run your fingers through your hair because the oils from your fingers help to loosen the curl. Can you tell I wear my hair like that a lot? haha. Hope that helps.

Yes you can, and she’s right they last way longer! Look up tutorils on youtube to get an idea 🙂

It depends on what wand you use. If you’re using a clamped curling iron try don’t last long. But I use the conair infinity clampless wand, and my curls last forever. And my hair doesn’t hold a curl very well. And if I curl with a straightener the curls don’t last long. I also use a mousse. I shower the night before and put the curl holding mousse in my hair. So when it’s dry in the morning I have texture and hold.

I have thick, straight hair and I find that a rod (no clamp) curling iron works the best. I got an inexpenisve Conair from ulta and my hair looks most “beachy” on day two. The clampless style works best because then you don’t have the ends curled in… at least for me. Hope that helps!

Personally, I use a styling wand. Before getting one, my hair couldn’t hold a curl to save its life and I was always so frusrated by that. Now, I curl it with the wand and it looks amazing. It will fall a little throughout the day, but will still maintain curl and bounce.
