How to Make Your Own Curling Wand

September 14, 2015

This curling wand trend that's been happening had me wanting to achieve those perfect curls for myself, but I really didn't want to splurge on yet another hair tool...so I made my own. Keep reading to find out how!


1. GATHER YOUR TOOLS
I started with my smallest curling iron - a 1" barrell. This also required a small screw driver - either a flat or phillips head depending on your iron.

2. START DECONSTRUCTING
Start by taking the "kick stand" off of your curling iron. Unscrew the two screws on the sides of the iron, this will remove the clip. Unscrew and remove the spring. 

3. DONE!
Now you're left with a curling wand! I put the screws back in place after removing the clip because I wasn't sure about leaving open holes in the barrell, but that's probably not necessary. 

I also saved the clip and spring in case I wanted to revert back to the regular curling iron. Two tools in one! It works like a charm. :)
