I really love my wand ! I have thick hair so I needed something with a lot of heat and the amika wands does just that ! I can curl my hair quickly and it will hold all day ! I know they are quite expensive so I bought mine on flatiron experts online and it was half off + they had a sale on top of it so it ended up been a really good deal
This wand works great but like the others have said it is kind of expensive for what it is. Watch for sales or speak to staff about a discount!
After trying to be sold on this from a stand in the mall, I found it for WAY cheaper at Marshalls.
The curling wand itself is great. It heats up quickly and gives great results. The only thing I wish it had was temperature settings and a light to indicate the product is "on". Without these, the product itself shouldn't be worth more than $50.
The price is a bit steep, at least I thought so when I was 19 and bought a $130 wand. You are able to 'talk' the sales associates down they offer what they call a staff rate.
It was worth it though. Has lasted me almost 5 years.
I find the 19mm the perfect size, the longer you hold the hair the tighter the curl will stay. I have thick long hair and I could create a full head of perfect curls in 20 minutes. The curls last too. I can go out a day later with perfect waves.
It even comes with a glove for beginners because believe me you will burn yourself at least 5times before you get the hang of it.
