Thought I might look online for a deal if anyone can recommend any tongs? Thank you in advance for any tips!

Look at a wand, gives more of a wave look that curl look. You can get different sizes for how tight you want the wave.

Oh I didn't know that, thanks. Do you know of a particularly good one?

Quick bump in case anyone with beautifully wavy hair happens to be around grin

I recommend a Cloud 9 wand with large sections wrapped round, then running your fingers through at the end.

That's pricey PNGirl - worth it compared with the T&G?

I got this one after my hairdresser recommended a wand. I just bought a cheap one to see if I liked it so no idea how it compares to more expensive ones, sorry.

There is definitely a technique to it though, I got my hairdresser to show me. Once you know how, it's really quick to do.

I have horrible hair that I could curl at 9am and by 9.30 it would be poker straight again, nothing i've ever found would help make my hair stay.

That is until i got my GHD wave wand, I know they're expensive but nothing has ever come close to it. Highly recommend it.

I second the cloud 9. It's pricey but amazing and leaves my hair with beautiful waves that last for hours. There is a knack to it though.
