GHD Creative Curl Wand review: The only tool that can make my dead-straight hair hold a curl

MY HAIR has never been able to hold a curl no matter how much hairspray I use, but the GHD Creative Curl Wand has changed the game entirely.

In my time as a journalist I’ve tried plenty of snazzy hair tools, some of them great, some of them a bitter disapointment. The GHD Creative Curl Wand is unreservedly the former and, after using the tool for a couple of months, I am a total convert.

Overall rating: 5/5

GHD Creative Curl Wand review: First impressions

I’m a huge fan of GHD’s chic packaging

I caught up with an old friend a few months ago whose hair looked phenomenal. Curled with the perfect amount of bounce and volume while still looking undone, the perfect in-between of trying but not trying too hard. A style I’ve been failing to achieve for years.

Of course, I asked her immediately what she’d done differently and she tipped me off about the GHD Creative Curl Wand.

The GHD Creative Curl Wand comes housed in a chic black and gold box that I couldn’t wait to rip open and discard in my excitement to try out the tool for myself. The curler felt sturdier than I was expecting, and is tapered to give a more natural result. 

I was surprised that the curler only has one heat setting, as every curler I’ve used before has had two or three settings for me to choose between, but having seen how fab my pal’s hair had looked so I had full faith in the process. 


GHD Creative Curl Wand review: Performance

The tapered end of this wands helps you get a natural-looking finish

First off, I separated my second day hair into sections and spritzed it with some heat protectant. I don’t bother with heat-resistant gloves because I’m well-practised enough to not burn myself, but if you’re still getting the hang of it you may want to pop on a pair to be safe. 

Then I took my hair in roughly three-centimetre-wide sections and wrapped them around the curler which I was holding at a horizontal angle. To make sure I was getting the most natural look, I made sure the root of my hair was at the thicker end of the wand and the ends were at the tapered tip. 

One of Creative Curl Wand’s biggest selling points is the tri-zone technology, which makes sure the hair is exposed to exactly 185°C throughout the curling process. This is supposed to limit damage while still being hot enough to make the curl hold. 

While I like this idea in theory, thicker hair needs more heat than fine hair so having a couple of different heat settings for different hair types could be beneficial. 

A feature of this wand that made it really stand out for me was the long swivel cord, which made it flexible to use on both sides of my hair and moved with ease.

After each section, I spritzed my hair with a volumising hair spray and repeated these steps until all of my hair was curled. I like to leave my hair to set while I do my makeup so it will last longer, so when my hair had cooled completely I brushed out my curls with a wide-tooth comb for natural, beachy waves. 

My hair always looks great for the first 15 minutes after I’ve styled it, but because it’s fine, long, and naturally dead straight, it just can’t hold onto curl. Until now. 

While the curls aren’t quite as defined the next day, with the Creative Curl my hair looks far more voluminous and has some body for the 48 hours after I’ve used the wand which is far more than I’d ever seen with tools I’d used in the past. 

The longevity of the curls is what sets this tool apart for me, and makes it worth the fairly hefty price tag. If your hair can hold a curl with any old curler, you might not hold this benefit in as high regard as I do.

The verdict: is the GHD Creative Curl Wand worth it? 

The results speak for themselves
  • GHD Creative Curl Wand, £139 from GHD – shop here

Emphatically, yes. 

Not to labour a point, but my dead straight hair couldn’t hold a curl for more than a few hours before, and now when I use this wand it looks voluminous and wavy for a good couple of days after styling.

Even if it doesn’t hold a defined curl for an extended period, it makes my hair looks voluminous rather than limp and gives it some noticeable oomph I was sorely missing before. 

£139 is a lot to pay for a hair curler, but you do get what you pay for and the results speak for themselves. 

If I’m going to use heat on my hair I don’t want to keep going back in with the tool to refresh the curls because that causes unnecessary heat damage. So not only did the longevity of the curls save me time, but it also saved my strands from getting dry and scraggly with damage.
