My quest to create the perfect hairdo ended this week. I had bought a conical wand from Babyliss which I still use, but I knew I wasn't going to be completely satisfied until I could have those cascading loose curls that the likes of Lana Del Rey and Lauren Conrad are so well known for. I'd heard great things about the Modiva 25mm model and got really excited about the quality curls I was able to achieve with it!

I love the fact it is clipless and comes with a glove to protect your fingers from burning. Best of all, however, is that you don't need to hold the hair around the tong for very long in order to create a lasting curl. I could only do a small part of my hair before giving up as I've been sick as a dog and just couldn't muster the energy. The searing temperatures in Sydney today didn't help my energy levels much either! I promise to post a photo when I get around to doing my whole head!

Before I go, I thought I'd let you know that this week I will be starting a new segment on the blog. It's a little Q&A with people I've found cool/smart/fun/stylish/interesting and want to share with you. It starts on Friday so be sure to tune in!
