So...I decided to take the screwdriver into my own hands and deconstruct one of my very own. I decided to try it on my 3/4 inch Conair curling iron. Originally purchased at Target for around $12. I chose this one because I recently chopped about 7 inches off of my hair and thought the smaller barrel might give me a few more "bends" to my shorter hair.
This was seriously so easy. I removed 3 screws which removed the clamp and the spring. What I was left with was a perfect little curling wand to create those gorgeous beachy waves we all love so much.
I am glad I did it and it's working really well. Those little Conair curling irons are such a great deal for us girls on a budget!
All I did for this look was wrap about 1 inch sections around the curling rod away from my face and hold for about 8 seconds each. Nothing uniform and nothing super neat. I wanted it messy. When they cooled down I tousled and sprayed Not Your Mother's Beach Babe spray. This look lasted 2 days.
Hello go-to summer hair!
