I used a curling wand for the first time. Only ever wear my hair down and straight (even on my wedding day!) so am a bit nervous. Want something different but worried it looks dated? I'm early 40s so remember the 80s and don't want to look like I'm stuck in a time warp!

Honest opinions please

I like it, not 80's at all! And you have a pretty hair colour.

Love the hair but the big hole in the face is freaking me out!

Sammysquiz Wed 16-Dec-15 22:45:25

I love it, looks great. Can't believe you achieved that with your first time using a curling wand!

Crunchycookie Wed 16-Dec-15 22:46:53

Love it, you've done a great job with the curling wand. Which one do you have?

BitOutOfPractice Wed 16-Dec-15 22:48:36

I think your mascara is a bit smudged

Love it smile

Were you a prison guard in Azkaban (the one with the lovely hair btw)?

Looks great envy <-- hair envy

Really lovely waves, just maybe don't flick it off your face too much, but the waves are really nice!

Thank you everyone! I am useless at doing hair - hence the perpetual 'style' ! I borrowed my sister's curling wand, it says "Remington Silk" on it, the bit you hold is red and the barrel is black. I watched a couple of tutorials on YouTube, I am used to straightening my hair with GDHs but I knew I wouldn't be able to curl it with them.

Surprisingly, the wand was really simple to use but be warned it gets really HOT and its virtually impossible to do it without scoring your fingers hmm Actually in one tutorial a girl was wearing heat proof gloves - if I thought I was going to do this regularly I'd seriously consider buying them! As it is, I just wanted to try it out first to see if it looked ok, I'm going to style it like that for my work Christmas meal out tomorrow night and I doubt I'll be doing it again until next year my next night out. But I might see if I can get the gloves for my sister!
