All Glammed Up

This past weekend was my nieces quinceaƱera finally after 2 years of planning we had such a fun filled hectic day. Like always we were running late, the church was in the morning so I had just enough time to do a quick 5 minute face. Not pictured here of course. This was the make up I did for the reception. My hair loose curls using my Insta Wave wand parted and pulled half way back. Did that make any sense. This lipstick I have been obsessed with this past week, I had it somewhere in my make up stash its the perfect frosted pink.

Review: InstaWave Automatic Curler

I don't know if I have ever mentioned that I love big hair. I think I must have been from Texas in another life. I love big bouncy curls. My hair is pretty thick so it takes me a while to curl my hair. I recently got to try the new Kiss InstaWave, it instantly creates beautiful, long-lasting curls with just 
the touch of a button. 

From their website here

Curls Made Instantly with the Touch of 
a Button


Lets get started

It took me a second try to get a nice bouncy curl. Wait 8 to 10 seconds depending on how tight you want your curl. Place hair in front of wand for an outer curl or place hair in back of wand for inner curl. The dialer has a left or right button depending on which direction you are for. You can even try alternating every curl left to right for more volume. Which is what I was doing here.

How to use
1. Hold InstaWave vertically

2. Place a section of hair on the InstaWave curling rod

3. Touch the Curl Dial either left or right, and the InstaWave instantly and automatically catches and curls the hair

4.Hold for 5-10 seconds, hold longer for tighter curls and less for beachy waves

5.Pull the InstaWave down vertically, letting hair out

It has a 1 inch ceramic iron barrel, which is a perfect size for my shorter hair. As of right now that is the only size they have, they might release additional sizes later on. When you turn on Insta Wave it has two settings low and hi it reaches a maximum temperature of 420. When you first turn it on it has a red light and when it is ready the light turns blue. You do hear a light buzzing noise, but it is very vague. It didn't bother me. If you accidentally forget to turn it off, it will automatically shut off after 90 minutes.

All done this was before I put my fingers through for a bit of a looser curl. I really liked the results I achieved. I was a bit skeptical at first because I had just cut my hair a couple days ago. A lot shorter and was not sure if it would work on my shorter hair. InstaWave worked just fine. It also helped me because I have thick hair to really section of my hair before I used it.

This was 3 hours later curls still bouncy and I didn't even use hairspray. It was on accident I completely forgot when I was already in the car. 

Here in the U.S. it can be purchased for $59.99 at Target, Ulta and Amazon

Have a great day!!
