Spiral curls

I have a short bob and would like to buy a tool to have spiral curls Honestly I have tried soooo many tools and it still comes out blah 😑 I have tried wands, beachwaver, and curling irons. Anyone have other suggestions? Never seems to like like the YouTube videos. Help!! Thanks 😊

Re: Spiral curls

Why not ask your hair stylist? Or, if you don't have one, find one. They are the experts & in the long run will save you $.

Yes my stylist did the spirals on me. I’m sure it’s me! I’m not very good at it. 😂

Re: Spiral curls

Wow, I've had your same experience. Bought/tried every tool that was supposed to accomplish these curls.  As good as I am with hair and hair tools, it was not working - until I tried Calista Zen Waver.  There is a slight learning curve, then it is a great hair day every time  I love this tool!!  Bought it directly from Calistatools.com.  Don't think it was available at the Q.  Think you will be very happy with your results!

You probably don't have enough product in your hair.  You will likely have to put gel in your hair as you dry it.

I'm intrigued with today's Beauty IQ Steal, the Conair Automatic Curler. Check it out, it might be something which could work for you. @jobiz

I tried this. My hair falls just beyond my shoulders. It did ok for the hair in front but no way could I ever make the back work. It might work better on shorter hair.

@jobiz  - I have this type of product (can't remember brand) when they first came out on the market maybe 4 years ago.  I paid 99.00 for mine.  It works great and I loved the look.  Only problem for me is that it took forever for me to do my entire head of hair because I have a lot of hair.  However, the result was wonderful and for 39.00, I suggest trying it!
