I’m going to let you all in a little secret – for YEARS, I curled my hair with a “curling wand” that I “Macgyver’d,” by simply unscrewing the clip that had loosened. Actually, the whole barrel was loose, but I kept using it anyway. Embarrassing – but it got the job done. For the longest time, I saw my favorite bloggers post about T3 curling irons. I always thought they were beautiful, but just couldn’t bear to dish out the money. However, when I saw the T3 Micro Whirl Trio Set, I thought to myself – “maybe it’s about damn time for an upgrade.”
I mean, the T3 Micro Whirl Trio design is just stunning – the white barrels with the rose gold accents can make any countertop look pretty. With all the hype and the sheer beauty of these wands, you can imagine just how excited I was when this set arrived at my doorstep!
What you receive in the set:
- 1.25″ – .75″ tapered barrel
- 1.5″ straight barrel
- 1″ straight barrel
- storage tote
- heat-resistant glove
What look each barrel can achieve:
- The 1.25″-.75″ tapered barrel is best for: (1) beachy waves, (2) textured waves and curls, (3) loose tousled curls, or (4) natural looking waves.
- The 1.5″ straight barrel is best for: (1) red carpet glamour waves, (2) full-bodied waves, or (3) volume with bend or flipped ends.
- The 1″ straight barrel is best for: (1) uniform spiral curls, (2) perfect mermaid waves, or (3) defined waves and curls.
Each barrel can easily inserted in the base and locked into place. There are five heat settings ranging from 260-410 degrees; easily adjustable for any hair type and texture. I keep mine on the third setting since my hair is fine and has a natural curl.
The barrels are made out of tourmaline and ceramic. Meaning, the barrels emit ions that leave curls looking smooth and shiny. T3 Micro has developed Singlepass technology allowing each barrel to deliver even and consistent heat allowing your curls to stay! No need to redo your curls later in the day. Say whaaat!? And if you’re anything like me – you often wonder if you left your curling wand plugged into the wall. Well, have no fear, there is a built-in one hour auto-off. Whew.
I have used my set consistently over the last month, and let me just say – the hype is REAL. I prefer to use the tapered wand because I love the textured, beachy waves look – but have used them all. I am SO impressed with the curls and the staying power. The first few times, I didn’t use hair spray at all – and the curls remained for most of the day. I don’t know what it is, but the Singlepass technology truly works and I am incredibly impressed. Depending on the barrel, I can even go a couple of days without re-curling. However, the real MVP is the tapered barrel – my curls stay as long as 3-4 days. No joke.
In my opinion, the T3 Micro Whirl Trio Set is a serious must have! There is a reason this particular set has won Allure magazine’s “Best of Beauty” Award three years in a row. Luckily for you, I found two discount codes that will earn you $50 off or 15% off your entire purchase.
