Recently I had the opportunity to try out the NuMe Pearl Curling Wand. I’ve been coveting a bubble shaped wand like this ever since I saw my friend Laura’s perfect waves in LA and she told me she achieved them with a curling wand like this. When NuMe contacted me to review a wand, I jumped at the chance.

About the NuMe Pearl Curling Wand
The revolutionary shape of the Pearl, measuring 13mm to 25mm from top to bottom, results in alternating curl widths for a different, exotic style every time. The tourmaline-infused ceramic coated barrel, paired with negative ion therapy and infrared heat technology, delivers damage-free results and brilliant shine. It heats up to the ‘perfect’ temperature of 410ºF within seconds. The heat penetrates deeply and evenly.
The NuMe Pearl Curling Wand comes with a heat resistant glove.
It’s called the Pearl wand because these are reminiscent of pearls on a string. My inner teenager can’t help but snicker at that.
The Pearl Curling Wand has a simple on off switch.
Using the Pearl Curling Wand is actually pretty easy. After applying heat protectant (see 9 cruelty free heat protectants), you wrap a small strand of hair around the wand, basically in between the pearls with the hand wearing the heat resistant glove and hold it for about 3 seconds.

What I love about this Pearl Curling Wand design is that it gives my favorite type of messy waves / curls. I prefer looser, messy waves. After I used it on my entire head, I just ran my fingers through my hair to loosen the waves up. You could also use a wide tooth comb to break up the curls a bit. This style of curling wand is surprisingly easy to use, much easier for me than the normal sort of clipless curling irons that I have struggled with in the past. It gets super hot, super fast.
What I don’t like about is that there’s only an on-off switch – you can’t choose your heat setting. I prefer to use the lowest heat setting (even though I use heat protectant) so that I do the least amount of damage to my hair. It also doesn’t have an auto shut off feature. I also wish it came with 2 gloves instead of one. I spent a lot of time switching the one glove between my hand until I finally decided it was easier to just work on one side at a time (left to right) rather than what I normally do – pin my hair up and work my way up from the bottom layer to the top layer.
If you like messy waves like I do, you will love the Pearl. It’s very easy to use, it heats up quickly and evenly, and the waves last for a long time.
