Hair Styles: Silky Straight Hair and Soft Natural Waves

Share Button
Folica sent me both hair styling tools for review.


Sooooo, I love playing with my hair.

But I don’t have time.

Actually, I have time, but not for playing with my hair.

However, every once in a while I like to change things up a bit and find ways to make my life easier as a mamá and that includes making my beauty and hair regime simpler and faster.

Folica, whose motto is “it’s all about the hair” sent me a TIGI Pro Skinny Curl Wand and the Nano Titanium by BaByliss Flat Iron to “play around” with different looks and experience high quality hair tools.

 Wow, wow, wow!

Until now I had only experienced less-than-impressive styling tools — seriously. I’ve owned about 5 flat irons and I gave up on them a while back. Oh and curling irons — it’s a love/hate relationship with them because I can never get the right wavy or curly look. But no more — enter the curling wand to give me the soft natural waves I’ve always wanted!

Silky Smooth Straight Hair
About the Flat Iron
Unbelievable smoothness, heats up in seconds up to 450 degrees, no burnt hair smell, works in one go (no having to go over several times) and leaves my hair looking and feeling silky smooth and healthy — not fried like other flat irons. Great for smoothing out kinks, especially when you wake up with wild hair and you want to tame it and have a clean and polished look.


TIGI Pro Skinny Curl Wand
About the Curling Wand
Absolutely LOVE THIS! I had never heard of a wand and it’s simply magical. I’ve only ever used curling irons and as opposed to those, you curl your hair around the stick and have more control over the kind of look and curl you end up with. You can do tight ringlets, soft waves, low waves and higher “all over waves.” I had to practice, but I got it! I finally got the soft natural waves I have been trying to get with a curling iron but failed.


Which do you prefer, the straight or soft natural wavy look?

    • María José Ovalle

      ¡gracias! I never straighten my hair because I hate the fried smell, but this one is amazing! I was shocked at how smooth and natural it looked and felt :) Thanks for entering!


    The waves are incredible. I love that they are loose. It’s hard to get natural-looking waves unnaturally! I have stick straight hair so I’m eager to give it a try. Fingers crossed!

  • Guest

    Your hair looks great – and I love both looks. It’s not easy to find a good straightening iron that can also produce those flowing waves. Good stuff!

  • Carin Kilby Clark

    Your hair looks great! I love both the straight and the wavy. *two thumbs up*

    Fab pictures and it’s great to see someone doing a demo of the wand – I think lots of women want to use one but are a little intimidated by them!

Date Night Idea: Cirque du Soleil Amaluna at National Harbor

I received complimentary tickets — no other compensation given. Opinions are my own. The lights were turned off and the audience was still as we sat waiting for the start of Amaluna,Cirque du Soleil, when my husband leans in and whispers “Thank you. It was a good idea to get out on our own for a date night” and then of course, made a move for a good old fashioned make out session. Well, ok. Not making out, but you know, a little {Read More}


Budget Friendly Designer Shoes: Christian Siriano for Payless

This weekend was a busy one getting ready for my son’s first day of kindergarden — which aside from school supplies included new undies, socks and shoes. He wears a uniform and there are rules when it comes to color and style so I had to run all over town to get the right ones and in the end, Payless came through for me. On Sunday I went on a double date with my cousin and my husband to see Cirque {Read More}

After getting our car sorted thanks to Ford, (more on that!) and figuring out just what we’d do, it was time to pack. For the kids, I took about 4 of everything, however I didn’t stress too much because we’d have time to do {Read More}
