Soft Waves with T3
Chicago Hair Class Recap
If you are anything like me you may notice at first how pretty the curling iron system I used today is. Curling irons almost always have a large element of black on them, so a white and gold iron immediately struck me as something different!
And there is a great deal of substance and technology behind the pretty looks as well.
I’ve been using this iron and dryer for a few weeks and I have to say that I find myself grabbing both of these tools in the morning more often than not!
So, in case you are new to this system, the basic concept is this: The base of the curling iron allows for a variety of attachments to click into therefore giving you different tools to style your hair with without having to buy an entirely different iron. It’s pretty genius if you ask me.
If you are a skeptic like I am and are wondering about the quality (“just how well exactly to these barrels insert into the end?” or “how hot does it actually get?”), I’m here to tell you to banish your worries. This iron is top quality. It’s sturdy and solid in your hand, and after a lot of swapping and testing of all the barrels I can assure you the barrels heat up quickly and consistently.
The biggest difference that I’ve noticed between this and other irons is how tightly the clip holds the hair on the barrel. Of course, this is only a factor for the two clip barrels but I was genuinely impressed at how smooth and firm it held my hair.
In the tutorial I explain why I choose what attachment I do for each section of my hair, and explain how to use the iron if you are new to it!
I start with the PROi dryer which created a very smooth surface to work on! I did a rough dry without the nozzle attachment, but added it near the end of the blow dry to help smooth out each section. The PROi Dryer is exclusive to Sephora, just so you know if you are browsing around.
I start on the lowest section with the 1.25” clip barrel, and work my way to the top of my head by using the 1.5” straight barrel. The look I was going for was soft, every day waves. Since this tutorial I’ve created a few different looks with the other barrel attachments and continue to be impressed with the smoothness of the irons and the long-lasting curls it gives me.
I love the soft waves AND the confidence that the bottom of my hair won’t fall straight too quickly.
I have the best news! T3 is giving away a full set of the tools I used in the the tutorial!
