Holiday Gift Idea : KISS Instawave

Hi there, my darlings! If you've been following my blog pretty regularly, you'll know that I don't review very many hair styling tools. Firstly because I'm really loyal (read : obsessed) with my hot air styler and secondly, because I'm a little bit lazy when it comes to styling my hair--I mean, hey, you try styling thick, waist-length hair! =P But when I came across the opportunity to review the KISS Instawave, I knew I had to give it a shot!

Let's take a quick peek at the product description :

The revolutionary KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful, long-lasting curls with ease (No Need to be a Pro).
  • Fully automatic, tangle-free curler
  • Innovative design lets you curl from any position using either hand
  • Curl Dial makes it simple to switch between left and right curl directions
  • Ceramic Ionic Technology protects hair for healthy, shiny results
  • Two heat settings with maximum temperature of 420° F
  • Auto shutoff after 90 minutes for added safety
  • Patent Pending

The design is fairly simple--you place a strand of hair through the large prong closest to the barrel of the styler...

...turn on the power, whether HIGH for tight curls or LOW for looser waves...

...and press the RIGHT or LEFT arrow. The styler is supposed to automatically wind the strand around the barrel and curl it.

Now let's take a look at how the Instawave worked with my thick, super long, naturally wavy hair below :

It was easy enough to loop a strand through the middle prong and the barrel...

...and how cool is that! A flick of the button and the strand was looped around the barrel, exactly as promised!

And voila! Gorgeous curls in very little time with very little effort! I'm impressed!

IMPRESSIONS : As you can tell from the picture above, this product really does! This isn't one of the "Seen on TV" exaggerated claims that we tend to roll our eyes at but secretly want--this product delivers! It's really easy to use, doesn't take long at all and left my hair not only with gorgeous curls, but shinier! And the best part? I didn't scald my hands even once!
The only con? It seemed to have trouble with the longest sections and I had to re-do those sections a couple of times. But I do believe this will get better with practice.
Overall, a fabulous product that I'm thrilled to have in my stash!

So there you have it, my darlings! If you would like to pick up the KISS Instawave for yourself or a loved one this holiday season, you can find it at Target HERE OR Ulta HERE for the price of $59.99. A great prize for a fabulous product!
