How to Use the T3 Curling Wand – Curl Tutorial

I tried sooo many different curling irons, wands, curlers, etc. before finally just caving in and purchasing the T3 Curling Wand. Because of the price tag on it, I was trying to find something comparable to it first. But all of the bloggers that I follow use this exact wand and their hair is always flawless. It looks amazing, and they all rave about it!! So after many trial and error runs, I just decided to spend the money because I knew it would be an investment in my hair and BOY am I glad I did. Oh my goodness.

I got my wand on eBay and spent a total of $100 with shipping. A new T3 retails for $270 and comes with 3 different attachments. I use the 1 inch attachment and knew that was the one I wanted, so that was the only one I’d need. I found another one on eBay for you guys that’s only $90 including shipping and that is a STEAL. I’ve linked it for you here! There’s only a few so when they sell, sorry if you missed it! But here is a link to all other T3 products on eBay. I have my eye on their straightener, too.


Best things about it:
It’s SO easy to figure out. I watched 1 tutorial and got it. Compare that to another where I had to watch at least 7 and still couldn’t figure it out. That might be a reflection on me more than the product itself, but I definitely prefer simplicity. If you’re a newbie like me, I recommend a heat resistant glove so you don’t accidentally burn yourself while you get used to the motion. I speak from experience.

I prefer a wand to an iron because for me, it’s easier to wrap my hair around than to clip it, pull it down and roll it up. One step = easy. Plus, my hair is layered so actual curling irons don’t work as well for me.

Here is the Tutorial video on how to use it. I’m sharing both a long version and a shorter version so you can decide which is better for you. The longer one has some of my tips throughout and the shorter one is just a sped up version of the process of using the wand to see the motion. There’s also a written How To below for anyone that doesn’t like videos All of the products that I use are linked below, including the same T3 that I use available on eBay!! Enjoy!






If you’re not a fan of videos, here is the written how to:

How to use it:

  1. Grab about a 1 inch piece of hair and comb it out
  2. Hold the iron with the barrel facing down and the cord end at the top (pictured above)
  3. Wrap the hair around the downturned wand AWAY from your face with the iron behind your head
  4. Hold there for 20 seconds
  5. Leg go of the hair voila: a curl!
  6. Once you’ve done your entire head, apply hair spray and let your hair sit for about 20 seconds without doing anything to it
  7. After the 20 seconds, flip your hair upside down and back up to loosen the curls (I do this twice, it’s your preference)
  8. Re-apply hairspray (optional) and you’re done!


Here is the after!

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at via the link in my bio ❤️
