Amplify Jumbo Waver*
I like to start with packaging. If you read my blog you will know that I am a real sucker for a bit of nice packaging and this product has really pushed the boat out in that department.
The top pictures shows the box with the cardboard sleeve around it. The sleeve has product information and some pictures of the tool in use on reverse. Underneath the sleeve is the gorgeous, sturdy blue box. I have since discarded the sleeve but I am using the box to store the product and it's extras.
The first thing I noticed about the jumbo waver is the size of it. It's much bigger than any other hair tool I have. I have long hair and find curling tongs time consuming and tricky because I have to use tiny pieces of hair. With this tool I can style large pieces of hair in seconds.
Inside the box you get the waver, a heat resistant matt which also acts as a case and a style guide. I read the style guide but found that the video clips on the website were even more helpful to me.
The barrels are titanium plated for snag free styling. The handle holds both the on and off switch and a dial for adjusting the heat. The waver heats up very quickly and holds a high constant heat. The barrels of the waver are large at 25mm to allow for large, s-shaped waves. These an be used to create various looks such as the mermaid look or messy, rock chick waves.
This tool is so easy to use. The 3m swivel cord means you have lots of movement when using the waver. I have used this in several different ways; using small pieces of hair for a more dramatic look or large chunks for everyday waves.
My favourite look to use is the everyday waves. This takes me 5 minutes using large pieces of hair. Apologies for the strange picture!
I have poker straght hair and getting a look like this is usually really hard work! The above style took me 5 minutes and stayed in all day.
I shared this with my friends on Facebook and 3 friends ordered it that night! It really is a great product that can be used in many ways and is really quick and super easy to use. This retails at £60 but is currently £40 in the Boots sale! It is available in high street retailers such as Boots, Superdrug and Argos.
