Since having my hair coloured, I have found the only way to keep it looking sunkissed and avoid it looking in any way streaky, is to style it with a little more shape and volume and my go to hair tool for the last couple of months to achieve a bouncy somewhat more fancy look, has been the Yogi Fat Barrel Hair Wand in Pearl White*.
With the biggest part of the barrel measuring 32mm and the smallest part 25mm, it's a fair sized curling wand and helps me to achieve a bigger, bouncier curl as opposed to a tighter one, which is definitely the look I prefer. When it comes to hair tools, including this one, I've only ever used a couple without a clamp and although I must admit I do tend to burn my fingers a little more often, I find it so much quicker which I find is fantastic for me.
In terms of how I style my hair with the Yogi Fat Barrel Hair Wand, I'm not one for having my hair too uniform or neat and never really have been, so I don't tend to go too neat or precise with the sections. I grab around six to eight sections either side of my parting and wrap the mid-lengths to ends around the wand in an outwards direction and leave for about 10 seconds. On release the curl is initially a little tighter and neater than I like, but my hair tends to drop slightly anyway, which leaves me with a bouncier wave and a lot more shape. If it doesn't drop once it's started to cool, I give it a little hairspray and brush it out with a wide toothed comb and it does the job perfectly.
If I'm honest, before being introduced to Yogi on this occasion, I hadn't ever come across the brand or the tool, but I'm really impressed with the quality of it and after finding myself reaching for it most days over the past couple of months, I would highly recommend it.
Its White design isn't completely too my taste and I don't think the flimsy plastic tube packaging that it comes in quite suits the price tag, but with its fast heating technology, lightweight base and 360 degree swivel lead, I find it such a quick and easy tool to use and I can't get enough.
Costing £64.95, the Yogi Fat Barrel Hair Wand is available to buy on their online store and in Boots.
