Remington Easy Curl Styler

At the end of the year, I attended a Remington event at Lucy in Disguise to have a good nose at the Remington range and their upcoming releases.  I was allowed to choose a few products to try out at home, and the one that excited me most was the Easy Curl Styler*.

I am absolutely rubbish with styling tools as I always manage to burn myself or end up with strangely angular hair shapes which I try to pull off as post-modern, but it rarely works…however, my initial excitement for the Easy Curl styler was thankfully well placed, as this is an absolutely brilliant tool that’s easy to use and really works!

This is pretty much a styling tong for dummies (so it’s got my name written all over it) and the way you use it is by clipping a small amount of hair into the clip at the bottom, then just rolling it up the hair tong.  The spiral around the tong itself (which doesn’t heat up so it’d be quite tricky to burn yourself with) then captures the hair and works as a guide so the hair is evenly placed all the way up, the result being perfectly formed spiral curls.

PIN IT
Remington Easy Curl: clip closed to the left and open to the right. 

The two reasons this is virtually foolproof is due the guide as mentioned above, but also the clip which will only take in a certain amount of hair.  Therefore, you can’t use too much hair (otherwise the clip won’t hold) and the hair is heated evenly and accurately; it’s just a brilliant design, so if you’ve ever tried tonging hair and not quite ended up with the desired results, this is most-definitely one for you to try.

The pictures I’ve used were taken after the first time I used this before a night out (sadly my skin was still rather spotty then!) and on the night out, two different girls stopped me to ask how I got my hair to look that way.  I never get asked about my hair styles so this was quite exciting for me!

100% huge rave from me for this amazing styling tool.  It costs a very purse-friendly £30, but Debenhams currently have it on a promotion for £20 here.

Have you ever used a tong with disastrous results? 
Any tips for styling hair with tongs?

    I love the sound of this! I have naturally poker straight hair which is a nightmare to curl. It always drops straight away 🙁

      Funnily enough, I have hair exactly like yours; it’s poker straight and nothing holds but this curl definitely held the whole night…really should’ve mentioned that in the review! xx

    This looks really convenient and user-friendly. We actually have the same predicament when it comes to electronic gadgets as I always get myself to the worst everytime I use them. I hope this one will really work for me as it had on you.

    This looks great, although I need to work on growing my hair first.

      I think it’d work really well on shorter hair too xx

    Interesting product. This looks like it would work really well on shorter styles.

Can I ever be accused of doing things by half when it comes to spending money on beauty-related products?  Sadly...
