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!

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!
  • “There is beauty in simplicity”
My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
