Welcome to the 80’s!!
Yes, I am going to take you back to the 80’s with the LEE STAFFORD original Chopstick Styler. It has to be one of my favorite hair tools ever. I have naturally straight hair and I like to experiment with them a lot. I am a big fan of curls, hence I have so many curling wands – different sizes but this has got to be number one on my list.

Product review –
I came across a YouTube tutorial on this and I decided to give it a try. I used this styler to curl my hair at my recent trip to Vegas, I received numerous compliments from complete strangers and it made me so happy. The curls look very natural and they stay for a very long time. I am very impressed with the quality of this product and it’s a bonus that it only costs $25 on Amazon.
I did the curls the morning of my flight to Vegas and I used the “strong hold” spray (Garnier) and heat protection serum (Nume Argan oil) for long lasting effect. I have thick hair and it took me approx. 45 mins to 1 hour. It also depends on the sections of the hair that you take. I took really thin sections for tighter curls. I kept the tight curls for 2 days and then I opened the curls with a wide tooth comb for a softer look and kept them for 2 days. I used the Batiste Tropical dry shampoo to keep my hair fresh and smelling good.
Day 1 – Tight curls
Day 2 –
Day 3 – Loose/softer curls
Day 4 – Softer Curls
I am enjoying these curls and extremely happy to own this product.
It is also available in India on Amazon.in but it is very expensive comparative to UK/US.

But don’t be disappointed. I have found a similar curling wand for little less price and it’s available on Nykaa. It is from the brand called “Corioliss”.
