The Octowand 8-in-1 Curling Set is one of the most economical and stress-free ways to try eight different barrels without the stress of clutter and tangles. From beach waves to tight ringlets, this tool can do it all.
It's also versatile in the fact that the Octowand has a digital temperature display. You can choose to set your temperature as low as 170 degrees and as high as 450 degrees. Oh, and heads-up, it heats up fast! The swivel rotating power cord is a bonus.
Is packing a stressor for you because you want to keep it light but also want to have options? The Octowand set comes in a compact, hard shell case that keeps your barrels organized and works well for packing purposes. It saves a ton of space at home too. The set also includes a pair of our heat resistant gloves to protect your fingers.
All of the barrels are 100% Tourmaline Ceramic, i.e., safe for all hair types and built to protect your curls and add shine. Here are just a few of the coveted styles you can achieve with this multi-purpose, jack of all curls wand.
The reverse wand is great for a modern-looking, piecey texture, as makeup artist and beauty influencer, Steph Willis, demonstrates in this video. Wrap hair away from your face, and keep the section of hair flat as you wrap. You can play around with volume by changing up where you start the wrap around the barrel (closer or further from your scalp). Willis adds a layer of shine and frizz protection to this look with the NuMe Gloss Boss Serum and some texturizing spray. The Octowand brings the beach to you, just saying.
The 32mm barrel will be your go-to for these. We've got a JLo inspired demo that shows how the biggest of the Octowand barrels turns curls out. Also, beauty and lifestyle expert Brittani Boren Leach creates some super chic waves in this clip with the Classic Curling Wand 32mm barrel, which is again essentially just one of eight options you get with the Octowand set.
Using the 25mm size barrel from the Octowand (which can be regular or cone-shaped, depending on the curl shape you want), Amber Fillerup demonstrates how to get a killer boho look that's perfect for springtime, outdoor music festivals in this tutorial. Gently tugging the curls once set is vital when styling. She also recommends setting strands with hair spray after curling each section if your hair is prone to losing the curl too soon.
The pearl barrel is perfect for creating what vlogger, Annabelle Kiefer, describes as "natural looking, mermaid curls" in her Octowand review. This one is superb for that old school, spiral-curly look, but can also create more natural ones if you don't wrap the entire section around the barrel. A lot of Classic Curling Wand Pearl lovers dig the bouncy, natural vibes this one produces.
Maybe even more classically curly than the mermaid curls, if you want some legit ringlets, the 19mm slim barrel that comes with the Octowand will be your jam. This one is also great for thinner or shorter hair. Beauty influencer Dazale gives you the skinny on this barrel in this YouTube video gushing about the Octowand.
The Octowand is definitely worth the hype (check out all the pages of 5-star rave reviews for it on our site) if you're looking for a multi-faceted tool that will give you tons of options for curls, waves and every piecey texture in between.
