A highly respected and successful brand, BaByliss started off as a French personal care appliance company before being acquired by the Conair Corporation in 1995. BaByliss actually invented the first electric curling iron so if you’re looking for an authentic and trustworthy brand – this is it.
The BaByliss 2286U Waving Wand comes with:
- 1 x waving wand
- 1 x protective gloves
So it may sound like something straight out of the Harry Potter novels but it’s actually an oval wand that creates waves rather than curls. With five temperature settings, this waving wand is suitable for all thickness of hair, even the most delicate. This tool is perfect to get tousled waves and even very defined waves as you simply choose how tight to wind your hair.
The temperature is adjustable between 140˚c and 200˚c with a small but readable screen that indicates which temperature you are at. As with most of the BaByliss curling wand range, this waving wand also has a cool tip and comes with a protective heat glove that is really good quality.
Without a clamp to kink the hair, this waving wand gives effortless, natural looking results in seconds. There are plenty of hair styling appliances out there that give half waves that flatten out quickly but this one has impressively long lasting results. It creates easy and defined waves without any in-your-face curls that don’t suit some people or look too over-styled.

This waving wand has an auto shut-off at 72 minutes and a built in heat rest so the hot part should never touch the floor if used properly. Small things like this give you peace of mind should you realise you’ve left it on while you’re out of the house.
Using straighteners or a curling wand to create waves usually results in either crimped sections or too-tight curls and the invention of the waving wand is certainly a breath of fresh air for those that want a more low-key, sexy look.
Nano-gold ceramic coating also enables smooth and silky hair and heats evenly through the barrel; even heating is important for consistency and this wand has no problems with that. The handle isn’t the sleekest though and looks a little cheap which is a shame. It’s easy to hold but just looks a little clunky.
- Absolutely perfect for loose or tighter waves
- Five temperature settings
- No kinks or crimpy look
- Not the most aesthetically pleasing hair tool you’ll find
- Only creates waves so if you want more of a curly look you won’t find it here
This wand creates waves that you just can’t get with a full-on curler or a set of hair straighteners. Getting natural looking waves is a really hard look to go for as they have a tendency to fall out but this wand keeps them lasting a really long time. If it’s the tousled look you want – this is the set for you. If you want more versatility and prefer curls to waves most of the time, then this tool might not be right. It really does what it says on the tin.>>> Click Here to see Pricing and Reviews on Amazon <<<
