GEORGIA HUMPHREYS GIVES MARK HILL'S NEW CURLERS A WHIRL Easy Curl Glam Waver ON the look out for new ways to add volume and bounce to lank locks? Mark Hill's Pick 'n' Mix range features a Wand Handle (PS14.99), and 10 interchangeable barrels which you buy individually, so you can create various looks with the same tool.
The two newest additions to the line-up are the Easy Curl, a spiral shaped barrel which you wrap hair around to achieve a more dramatic curly look, and the Glam Waver, for simple Hollywood-style waves.
WHAT ARE THEY LIKE TO USE? I SEPARATED my hair into two layers and found that, because the barrel is so wide and chunky, I could then curl fairly big sections of hair in one go. Being careful to curl towards the face, to keep the style consistent I found the Easy Curl much harder to use. The instructions state to follow the direction of the spiral of the wand - but I still found myself getting confused about which way that should be. I eventually roped in a friend to help!
The process takes a bit longer too, as you need to use really thin sections to achieve that tightercurl look.
AND THE RESULTS? AT first, I wasn't sold on the results of the Glam Waver, as I didn't see much difference from my normal style. But I started wrapping the hair around the barrel for longer and the waves started to improve. Afterwards, my hair looked super-glossy and shiny. My entire head was waved up in 20 minutes.
The Easy Curl takes longer but, once you get to grips with your technique, gives a more dramatic result. Even the next morning, my hair was full of bounce.
| The Glam Waver and Easy Curl are PS14.99 each, available from markhill.co.uk and Boots.
