ISO 5P Curling Wand

Amika 3 Piece Wand Set
|Lastly we have the Amika 3 piece wand set. This is a pricey bit of equipment, but is well known for being a very high end curling wand. This set is often seen on sale for heavily discounted prices, so with that in mind it becomes a much more enticing option. Like the ISO set above this comes with a variety of different interchangeable barrels including a 19mm, 25mm and 32mm. One major advantage of this particular set is the length of the barrels. Most standard wands have a roughly 5″ length barrel but these come with a 6.5″ long barrels. If you have long hair, then the additional barrel length will make the curling task a little easier.
The barrels are made out of ceramic tourmaline, and it is a quick and easy process to swap between them. Like the 5p set above, these barrels also have a flat section on each one to stand the wand on.
The temperature range on this model is 410F and the current temperature is displayed on the lcd, and the temperature can be controlled using the buttons on the handle. The handle is ergonomically designed and comfy to work with, and the cord is attached via a swivel base so no need to worry about any cord tangles. This is a dual voltage model so it is perfect if you want to take it overseas at some point. The is one of the best curling wands we have seen as is a fine choice. The retail price of over $200 makes it quite pricey, but it has been heavily discounted on Amazon for over a year now which makes for a tempting deal.
