5 Tips For Beautiful Curls With KISS InstaWave

Pretty Curls!
This is my beautiful daughter, Chanel. She volunteered to be my model for this post. 

I received a KISS InstaWave to review and I’m absolutely loving it. While I have short hair, my hair has a bit of a natural wave to it so I haven’t ever had to really deal with curling my hair too much. Chanel, on the other hand, has straight hair. It dries perfectly straight without having to do anything to it.  Sometimes she likes having her hair done in something other than a braid or ponytail.

Chanel’s natural hair

The KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic, tangle-free curler that creates beautiful curls instantly. What does that mean? You know that annoying crease you get when you’re curling your hair from the clip? That’s a thing of the past. I was kind of skeptical at first but it’s REALLY easy to use and there is no creases! Chanel was even able to do a curl or two. She thought it was pretty fabulous that you didn’t have to do anything other than place the hair and push a button. The curl dial can rotate in either direction – which makes it easy to create a natural looking curl.

Here is the easy process of using the InstaWave:

1- Place the hair
2-Push the button to twirl the hair around the wand
It should look something like this


3- After letting the wand heat the hair for about 5-10 seconds pull the KISS InstaWave straight down and you’re left with a beautiful curl. You can hold it longer for tighter curls.

There are two heat settings on the wand – low/high switch with a max temperature of 420 degrees. It automatically shuts off after 90 minutes.  It has a ceramic ionic 1″ barrel and it even works on short hair. Obviously it’s not going to produce cute ringlet curls on short hair, but it does curl my short hair. I’ve been using it to curl my ends under and haven’t had any problem with it.

Some things that I have noticed about the KISS InstaWave are that the mechanism that curls the hair is pretty quiet. The curler itself makes a buzzing noise when it’s plugged in – Chanel kept commenting on the sound that it was making. I hardly noticed it. Overall, it curls your hair pretty quickly, which is nice when you have a 7 year old that doesn’t want to sit still! We both have been loving the curls. It took me a minute to figure it out but once I did, it was a breeze. The hardest part was figuring out how to properly place the hair. (see step 1).

Tips: 

  1. Switch between curling left and right to create a natural curl
  2. Section your hair off and curl the underneath section of hair first. These curls don’t have to be perfect or as tight as the rest of your hair – in fact if you curl it a loosely, it adds some volume to your hair. 
  3. Spray with hair spray after each section – use a flexible hold hairspray to avoid that crunchy look. 
  4. Curl the pieces of hair right by your face away from your face – What I mean is, on the left side curl the piece to the left and the right side to the right. 
  5. Finger comb through the curls to make them look more natural. 

Bonus Cosplay Tips:
***Obviously, only use this with real human hair wigs – synthetic hair will melt!***

    • Due to the fact that this doesn’t PULL your hair like a regular curling iron, makes it ideal for touching up curls on either your clip-ins or wigs! You can do this either while the wig is on your head or on your wig mannequin. It won’t tangle your wig and it won’t leave a crease. Just section the hair and curl, following the same steps as above!
