The Award-Winning White Sands Curling Iron

White Sands Curling Iron


White Sands, a professional hair care manufacturer rated as one of Hollywood’s most requested product lines, is proud to announce their Spring Marcel Curling Iron ($110.00 USD) as the recipient of Best Curling Iron for Essence Magazine’s 2011 Beauty Awards!
These innovative and now award-winning curling irons are one of the first in the beauty industry to fuse the Marcel and Spring Load curling iron methods into ONE tool. Utilize the professionalism of a Marcel curling iron to create beautiful waves or switch to the direct control of a Spring Load without the need for multiple irons.
Available in 3 sizes (1″, 1.25″, & 1.33″), this light weight Professional Titanium Iron is the secret to achieve beautifully designed and polished curls.  Maintain total styling control with a smart tool providing an instant and even heat with a Digital LED Temperature Setting ranging from 122 – 410°F. As the smoothest surface available for tools, tresses will effortlessly glide over the Titanium barrel for styling free of unwanted tugging, snags, or breakage. This cutting edge material produces the iron’s even heat distribution, emitting negative ions to create soft, silky hair.          

What I think: This is a great curling iron! I tried the 1.25″ size and it gave me big curls that I brushed out into soft waves — very pretty. I used it on my 6-year-old daughter and created fun barrel curls. She looked so cute! And it was so easy to use. I love that the barrel can rotate, which made it easy when I switched hands and directions of curl, the rotating barrel made the transition easy. It also heated extremely quickly, which is important for curling children’s hair — they do not want to wait a long time!

This curling iron is available at fine salons &

Make Your Hair Fabulous With The Instyler

The Instyler

Yay! I was finally able to try the Instyler Rotating Hot Iron Hair Straightener ($99.99). This tool is quite different then other hair straighteners and curling irons that I’ve tried.  The InStyler Iron Hair Straightener can straightens, flips, and curl the hair and it is exciting to own such a multi-tasking product!

Here is the claim from the website: “When you run the InStyler® rotating hot iron through your hair, the first set of bristles gently sort and separate your hair strands. Then the rotating heated polishing cylinder gently glides over your hair, smoothly polishing, straightening, and styling each strand. Finally, the second set of bristles puts the finishing touch on your hair, leaving you with shiny, silky, hair! It’s truly amazing!   

And the best part is, because of the InStyler® rotating hot iron’s patented design, your hair won’t get smashed and baked by the super-intense heat of a flat iron or other “hot” tools. In fact, the InStyler® rotating hot iron uses less heat than traditional hot tools, and delivers better results. How? Because the InStyler® rotating hot iron’s gentle heat in conjunction with the rotating motion of the polishing cylinder literally polishes your hair strands individually so it doesn’t need extreme heat to get amazing results.   

Plus, the InStyler® rotating hot iron does so much more than any styling tool out there. Get lift and fullness – right from the root! Get a sexy flip in seconds. Straighten even the toughest, most coarse hair – and still get fullness and style without the stick-straight “flatness” of a flat iron. Do a full style in 8 minutes… and change it again in two minutes! Wrap your hair around the rotating polishing cylinder – and get an amazing curl that lasts all day!”

Awesome, right? Well — yes. The Instyler is super easy to use. I just take a section of my hair and hold the Instyler brush side on top and the brush smooths the hair while the cylinder rotates and applies heat.  To make waves or curls, just rap hair around the cylinder, allow a few rotations, and release. Super cute!

My hair is wavy, but fairly thin. Of the three settings, I use the lowest one. I started using the highest setting, thinking my wavy hair needed it — but it fried my hair. The medium setting worked, but didn’t leave my hair shiny. So like baby bear, I used the smallest — I mean lowest — setting.  And voila! My hair was straight and shiny! And curls stay longer, too.  I would suggest experimenting with the settings, but only use the highest setting if you have very course or curly hair.
