The new Sedu Revolution Clipless Iron (and sister bonding time)

I think discovering clipless irons has changed my hair life. It’s been the only type of iron I’ve been able to use on myself to make gorgeous waves that hold.  Folica.com sent me their latest and greatest clipless to review, the Sedu Revolution and it.is.FANTASTIC. I decided instead of making another tutorial of myself (I’m pretty sure you guys are sick of me trying to curl my hair in front of a camera anyway), I decided to switch things up a bit, so I enlisted my sister Haji to help me review it.

Sister bonding time

Well, there’s actually two reasons I wanted her help — first, ever since I posted my last tutorial about how to use a clipless, she has been begging me use one on her. Second, she has been blessed with GORGEOUS thick, dark hair. I knew this would be fun.

I’ve been pretty happy with my other iron, but this has some additional features that mine didn’t have. RIGHT off the bat, I noticed (and really appreciated) its super long cord (a nine foot cord to be exact). It’s also very lightweight and sleek-looking. It’s ultra-polished ceramic coating ensures glossy curls (as you’ll see), and a little security stand that you can pop out so it can safely stand on its own on your table (you can see it in the picture above).

Sedu's heat settings

One of its best features I think though is its adjustable heat settings…and totally superficial note, I loved that it lit up in blue — so pretty (sigh). My other iron automatically heats up to the highest setting which is fine for me because my hair is a bit on the thicker side. But if you have short or finer hair (or if you just want looser curls), it’s so clutch to have the option to use it at a lower setting. We used it on the highest setting for Haji. Here’s her before pic.

Her hair is straight in the pic, but it’s normally naturally wavy like mine. I showed her how I hold the iron and how to wrap the hair around the barrel keeping it rounded (not flat) to get more wavy-like results. I made a little video of her using the iron for the first time — she picked it up easily!

The best part about curling your hair like this is you can make so many easy styles — like this side pony tail. Or, you can use bobby pins to pin your hair up in a messy bun similar to Mila Kunis’ Oscar hairstyle.

The Sedu Revolution clipess iron is normally $250 but you can get it on Folica.com for $119. But here’s even BETTER news: BATF readers get an exclusive discount — use the code SHYEMA20 at checkout and you will get an extra 20% off ANY Sedu appliances for this week ONLY (offer ends 4/1). And remember, you already get free shipping. Needless to say, my sister’s now a believer and loves her new waves!

Looking pretty
