Are you a salon professional or an individual that feels their curling iron is just not versatile enough to do everything you want with it? You could solve that problem by owning several different curling irons but then that would end up costing you some good money. So what is the lower cost alternative? That would be buying a super-versatile curling iron like this one from NuMe. It is like having a whole box full of curling irons in one.
I heard nothing but good things about the NuMe Octowand Curling Iron so now it’s time to take a closer look at it.
Taking a Quick Look at the NuMe Octowand Curling Iron
Here is a quick look at the good and bad characteristics of this professional quality curling iron:
- 8 interchangeable barrels
- 170F to 450F temperature range
- Dual voltage
- Comes with protective heat glove
- Ceramic tourmaline infusion
- 7’ power cord w/swivel end
- No spring clamp to catch your hair
- It takes some time to perfect using it
- Performance and Versatility
I told you this was a versatile product and that is due to its eight interchangeable barrels and its wide temperature range. It includes all of the following swappable barrel types that can be used; 13mm, 19 mm, 25 mm, 32mm, 18 to 9mm reversing barrel, 25 to 18mm reversing barrel, 13 to 25mm reversing barrel and it even has a pearl coated barrel that comes with it too.
The NuMe Octowand Curling Iron becomes even more versatile when you factor in that it can be set anywhere from 170F – 450F. The temperature has any ease push button control to set it and appears vividly on this curling iron’s digital display.
To make things even better all the interchangeable barrels are ceramic/tourmaline infused for even heating and to help reduce frizz. There is also far infrared heat generation which will help protect you or your client’s hair even more from heat damage.
Its dual voltage capability makes it an excellent curling iron to take with you as you travel to anywhere in the world.
Safety and Convenience
This product does come with an included safety glove which I recommend you use because the barrels get very hot. It also has an auto-shutoff feature.
The power cord for this curling iron is slightly over 7 feet long and has a swivel end to keep the cord from getting tangled up as you use it.
Hair Type the NuMe Octowand Curling Iron is Best Used On
Because of its versatility there really is no type of hair you cannot easily curl with this curling iron from NuMe. Normally you would raise your eyes at a statement like that about a curling iron but take it from me it’s very true in this case. There are few curling irons made that will allow you to work on so many hair types and create as many different types of curls as this one.
Customer Support and Potential Concerns with this Curling IronThe warranty with the NuMe Octowand is just ok. It comes with a 30-day customer satisfaction guarantee and a full one-year replacement warranty.
As far as concerns go with this product most of those stem from the fact the wand does not have a spring clamp. Because of this fact it takes most people who have used more traditional working curling irons a long time to get used to using this interchangeable barrel curling iron. You should be able to get the hang of it though with a little practice.
Some Final Thoughts on the NuMe Octowand Curling Iron
This is certainly not your conventional style curling iron nor did NuMe ever intend it to be that way. It’s a truly versatile design both for individuals and salon professionals thanks to its large working temperature range and its 8 interchangeable barrels. NuMe has also taken steps to help you reduce the risk of heat damage to hair that is curled with it too due to its ceramic/tourmaline coated barrels and its gentle far infrared generated heat.
If you like a large variety when it comes to curling choices and you don’t mind experimenting to perfect your technique, then this is a very good curling iron for professional or personal use.
