Nicky Clarke Waving Wand £19.99
Using the very latest in technology, innovation and design, the Nicky Clarke Waving Wand, from the salon inspired Classic Collection, is the tool every woman neesd to create that desirable, beachy, tousled look this summer.
Ceramic Technology – The ceramic tong allow for event heat distribution. It is smooth, allowing for it to glide through the hair without snagging. Ceramic technology also has a more uniform heat up compared to metal tongs, which can result in hot spots and tend to burn the hair.
Innovative Shape – Beachy waves – a look which we all covet, but is hard to create with a regular curling tong. Rather than giving a regular and structured finish, the waving wand creates a more versatile and relaxed wave.
Other features of the Waving Wand include – a 3m cable and 22mm barrel.
Nicky comments: “Create beautiful beachy waves easily with this waving wand. Simply wrap your hair around the unique shaped barrel for a gorgeous tousled look.”
The waving wand is available from Argos.
