If you really want those soft, natural waves that your favorite starlet pulls off so well, skip the hairspray and follow with a shine-enhancing product like Oscar Blandi’s Olio di Jasmine Hair Serum.

Sedu®

Birchbox Breakdown

We've been swooning over the tousled wave look ever since starlets like Blake Lively started making straight look boring. Unfortunately, our attempts to replicate their perfectly coiffed locks with a traditional curling iron simply left us with tight curls. Then Sedu®'s 25MM Clipless Iron came along: This curling wonder features a polished no-clamp barrel that creates smooth long-lasting waves without kinks. Now that our hair is Hollywood-ready, we just need to find a way to score a dreamy designer wardrobe.

How it Works

The 25MM (one-inch) polished clipless barrel is ideal for creating free-flowing waves without static or frizz. The adjustable temperature goes all the way up to 350°F and distributes heat evenly, allowing curls to last extra long. The iron also shuts off automatically after 30 minutes without use and comes with both a kickstand and a heat-resistant glove to save energy and prevent our precious hands and tabletops from burning. The 9-foot swivel cord is pretty fantastic, too.

How to Use

Set iron to the desired heat temperature and let stand for at least 25 seconds. While you wait, spritz hair with a heat-protective mist and separate into two sections, one upper and one lower, clipping the upper section out of the way. Next, slip on your heat-resistant glove, pick up the iron with the other hand, and wrap a one- to two-inch section of hair around the barrel, away from your face. Point the barrel down vertically while you do this. After holding hair in place for about 5-10 seconds, allow the curl to gently fall off the iron. Repeat steps for all sections and admire your new wavy locks.

Not sure it's worth the money
Purchased

I bought this wand hoping it would be a quick easy tool to get the tousled beach look year round. The curls looked great when I did it, but they did not hold well in my hair. I'm not sure if it was me or the tool, but I think you could probably find something very similar at a lower price point. The automated turn off feature is really nice though.

Curls don't last
Purchased

This iron gets super hot (I burnt my finger) so make sure you wear the gloves! I liked the curls but they were gone in a couple of hours! For reference I have thick wavy hair, so if you have fine hair this might work for you.

Perhaps with Longer Hair
Purchased

I think the reason this curling iron doesn't work for me is due to my thick hair that's just past my shoulders.

I can tell it makes a nice curl, but when I'm done curing, it ends up looking more messy/beachy than curly. Thinking it will work great when my hair is a little longer.

This thing is amazing
Purchased

I have very straight, fine hair, but a lot of it. Since childhood, I have struggled to have bouncy pretty waves. I've tried hot rollers, velcro rollers, curling irons, round brushes...etc. No matter how much hairspray and torture I used, my hair would invariably end up straight again...until this curling iron! It gives me lovely waves, doesn't take a ton of time, and they STAY IN. Definitely would recommend.

No clamp marks!
Purchased

A great tool, I love it so much more than your traditional curler. I don't bother using the glove it came with, but it's certainly handy.

Sedu gives me smooth, bouncy curls and volume

This machine is truly special. I have fine hair, but a lot of it. Easily damaged, I let my hair airdry then smooth it out with a nourishing spritz of treatment and a curling iron - now this Sedu iron. It is the BEST curling iron I've ever used, creating smooth, bouncy curls and volume. LOVE!

If you want a clipless iron, here you go
Purchased

If you were like me and wanted to "try out" a clipless iron, meh - do it with something cheaper. It was nice but I've had irons that get just as hot and offer the same features for less. I wish you received two gloves, the one I received was all torn up.

The only thing that gets my hair to curl
Purchased

Okay, maybe not the only thing. Sleeping in curlers will give me hideous Shirley Temple curls. GHD's flat iron made my hair look pretty, but fell almost immediately. Hot steam curlers give a nice, loose curl, but those take at least 40 minutes all together. With Sedu's iron I'm done in 10 minutes.

And the curls LAST. As long as my hair is completely dry when I curl it, I can get them to last overnight. If it's at all damp, the curls fall - but even then, they last a good 4-6 hours. In contrast, the most I could get out of normal curling iron and a bucketload of hairspray is 2 hours (and crunchy hair).

I have very fine, long hair. But I've also done it for a friend who has long very thick hair - and who also said that she could never get her hair to hold a curl. Hers held from 6pm, through a very fun bachelorette party, and was still curly the next morning.

This thing is awesome. And totally worth it.

This changed my life!
Purchased

My hair has NEVER held a curl. Not when I was younger and not now. No matter how much hair spray or professional styling could keep my hair curled. This clipless iron was all I had hoped and dreamed for! I can get long loose curls on WEEKDAY MORNINGS even!! It takes about 20 mins for me to curl my hair which is fine but long. I wouldn't trade this thing for the world.
