babyliss glamour waves: £19.99*
The barrel is a whopping 38mm which is the largest barrelled tong I currently own. As it's so large it gives these romantic soft waves, rather than tight ringlet curls. Another plus point is that the tong also has a variable heat setting going up to 210 C. Therefore you can use a heat suitable for your hair type rather than blasting it with heat it doesn't need.
The Babyliss Glamour Waves tool adds subtle movement to the hair without making it look too done. I feel it gives sort of Hollywood inspired come boho beach babe hair type finish. That naturally, tousled look that we all wish our hair looked like naturally but doesn't quite fall like that without a bit of help! I absolutely love this wand, and I can wholeheartedly recommend it for mid to long hair. I think shorter hair may not benefit from the large barrel as it's awkward to wrap shorter hair around a large barrel. You can pick these up for around £20 from most good electrical retailers.
