Mark Hill Professional Rock Chick Wave Wand






Before my self imposed spending ban I picked up the Mark Hill Professional Rock Chick Wave Wand (quite a mouthful haha). It appealed to me for 2 reasons. Number one it was a larger all one size barrel compared to my current Babyliss Curling Wand, and number two, it was on offer in Boots at half price. It also comes with some finger pad gloves to avoiding burning your fingers (although I never use these) and a little style guide. The barrel is 32mm so produces large bouncy waves/curls. I really like the effect it gives, although I'm not sure this will work well on short hair because of the large barrel. I did burn my fingers a couple of times using it, but I think this is more down to the fact that I'm used to using a smaller conical barrel, I think once I've got used to using this I wont burn my fingers quite so much. Overall I think this is a nice curling wand, but I'm not sure I love it as much as my conical wand, and I don't think I would have paid full price for it. I think I might invest in a larger barrelled conical wand when my spending ban is lifted as I currently have the standard 25-13mm, so if you have any suggestions please let me know in the comments. The Mark Hill Wand is still on offer for £29.99 at Boots.

  2. Gorgeous turnout but burning your finger doesn't sound like fun.

  9. Lovely natural waves and it doesn't really take the hair length away either :)

  10. I've not tried any Avene products but will give them a go after reading this. A product range I find really useful for acne prone, flaky skin is Alva Rhassoul. The moisturiser in particular is very good and leaves my skin feeling matte all day long :)makeup artist
