233 Commerce Place GSO, localhoneysalon.com Come shop Black Friday at Local Honey®! Buy an Arrojo professional clipless styling wand, and get a FREE Local Honey® T shirt AND 3 FREE Arrojo travel products! (PS, we are restocked on the old-school logo shirts that were so popular! Gift Collection Price: $125 Retail Value: $180 A curling wand makes creating texture, waves and curls easier. A contemporary, quick and creative tool, knowing what a curl will look like when you take it off the rod is the first step to tailoring textures as you and your clients like them. Here’s our easy guide for a variety of ribbons, twists, and turns. •Flat Wrap: As it sounds, the hair is wrapped around the wand with no twisting and turning; it lays completely flat. This style of wrap will give a ribboning effect and is great for big classic curls and prepping hair for updos. •Twisted Wrap: In this wrap the section of hair is completely twisted around itself, and then wrapped around the wand. When this curl is loosened it breaks apart giving a softly deconstructed look. This style is great for natural-looking curly and wavy textures. •Half and Half: A half flat and half twisted wrap will create the softest wave. This is great for creating beachy textures and vintage looks. TIP: For the most natural looks try a mixture of all three styles. Perfectly uniform curl patterns do not happen naturally, so mixing it up is a great way to make sure the look is always soft and playful, rather than forced and overdone.
