I don’t do a whole lot of experimenting when it comes to beauty and style routines, but last month was different. Impulse purchases led me, on three occasions, to discover a few new tricks I’ll be coming back to…

​Curling a Spin N Curl Curling Iron

I did some crowdsourcing on Instagram, asking for curling iron recommendations after wasting a lot of time fiddling with mine one night with poor results. When I went to Target that same day, they were out of the Kristin Ess and I spotted an option that got one lone recommendation but has lots of great reviews: the CHI Spin N Curl.

Having always been curious about these sorts of auto-gadgets, I watched a quick video while standing in the heat-tools aisle and then decided to try it out. Here’s the promise: “Hair is drawn into the curl chamber where it is heated and timed to create perfect curls and waves every time.”

I gave it a try that night and couldn’t stop laughing as it sucked my hair up and then left me with ringlets of the Shirley Temple variety. But lo-and-behold, they looked kind of awesome when I tugged on them and straightened them out a bit—until they were very Carrie à la Sex and the City season six. I then used a flat iron to take some of the curl out of the ends to get them to look a bit less perfect.

It’s sort of a one-trick pony. You can’t get the variety of looks you could from a curling iron, but it’s really fast and really easy!

Conclusion: I worry a bit more about needing to use additional heat on the ends of my hair with this method, but it is way easier for me if I want full-on waves. It’s quick and hard to mess up—and I appreciate the burn-protection (the outside stays cool)! It also releases easily if you put in too large a section.
