I am frequently asked about how I achieve the undone waves featured in the above photo. Well, my love for the Ion Titanium Pro Multi Styler from Sally Beauty knows no bounds. It started with this tutorial from a few months ago – I had just recently started using the multi-styler, and I knew I liked it, but had no idea that it would pretty much replace every other styling tool I owned. (Well, except for my hair dryer, of course.) This baby does it all. It straightens (even stubborn, cowlicky bangs), waves, curls, flips, you name it.
As many of you know, I only wash and style my hair twice a week, so this iron is a workhorse on those days. I usually blow dry and then create the messy waves I demonstrated in the tutorial, but I also can’t live without it to help manage completely rogue bang sections on the other days when I wake up, walk to the bathroom, and take a gander at something similar to this. (Good ol’ R Pat can rock it, but not so much over here.)
The key to the iron is the small surface area that makes it easy to work with short hair like bangs, but also the shape of the iron. As you can see in the above photo the iron curves all the way around, and it heats up on the sides as well, not just the plates in the middle. That way, you get a full curl, instead of the usual flat iron curled-yet-crimped look. It’s pretty cool.
Also, it heats anywhere between 0 and 450 degrees to accommodate most hair types. I like to keep the heat around 350.
To keep things fair, thought, I do I have one beef. If I had to choose one thing I didn’t adore about the iron, it would be the color. I much prefer simple black, but if blurple is your thing, you will love it. (Obviously not an issue that affects the performance of the iron…I’m just a nitpicky lady.)
