Take a Look: T-H-X Wave Hello Tong

I prefer a large barrel tong over the smaller tong so the Wave Hello 32mm Tong from T-H-X (Total Hair Experts) is definitely something I'd be interested in. I love the bigger curls you can create and it definitely gives a more natural result.
I wrote about the range in August, and was lucky enough to attend the celebrity launch in October. So after using the Wave Hello Tongs for a while now, I thought I'd let you in a this great value styling tool. Just in time for Christmas...
Does it do what it promises?
If you like to fake a blow dry and give hair a glamorous boost, then these are the tongs for you. I've used these a number of times for a quick, loose wave look and it takes about 15 minutes to do my hair (just below shoulder length)
They won't give a really defined curl on hair that is mid length and shorter, however, they give a really nice wave which looks effortless. Longer hair ladies can get a stronger barrel shape curl if they wish.

Would I get it again?
The whole range is exceptional value for money, however the quality is still high end. I love the fact the heat can be adjusted up to 230 degrees, which means whatever hair type there is a temperature for it.

Anything else?
My friend, Kristie, recently used the tongs and said they were by far the best she'd used on her (extremely) long hair. She found them easy to get on with, and because they have a longer barrel than most tongs, it's easier to wrap long hair around.
It also has a 1 hour auto switch off mode, which for me is a HUGE selling point. I always have that oh-my-god-did-I-turn-my-tongs-off panic after leaving home so knowing they'll do it for me is great.
My only negative, and this is a small point in a sea of amazing qualities, is the fact the heat stand rest gets in the way at times.

Keep them peeled for a tutorial using these, but to see what result I get, head over to my Youtube channel as I style my hair with them at the end of my Schwarzkopf Ultra Bright video.
