With so many events going on this summer, & some upcoming fall weddings, I find myself curling my hair more often than usual. The NuMe Octowand ($199 USD) is PERFECT for not only curling my hair, but giving my hair different looks because of all the different wand options. I love how versatile this 8-in-1 curling wand is; I can go from having tight curls to big waves!
The NuMe Octowand has 8 different barrels that you can easily change before each use. Each barrel is made from tourmaline ceramic which creates long lasting curls. They also give off infrared head and negative ions which eliminates frizz and locks in moisture.
The NuMe Octowand 8-in-1 Curling wand includes barrel sizes in:
- 13mm barrel for spiral curls
- 19mm barrel for tight ringlets
- 25mm barrel for glam curls
- 32mm barrel for beach waves
- Pearl barrel for bouncy natural waves
- Reverse barrel for tight ringlets to beach waves
- 25mm Cone for soft curls to tighter ringlets
- 19mm Cone for ringlets to spirals
Each barrel gives you a completely different curl (as pictured below). The kit also includes a heat-resistant styling glove and convenient travel case. The styling glove is essential for all beginners – after years of using wands, I have perfected my technique so I don’t use the glove anymore. BUT I highly recommend using it at first just so you get used to holding the wand and wrapping your hair around it. I’ve had several friends burn their fingers when they just started using curling wands.

The easy to read digital screen shows you the exact temperature the wand is at. It starts off blue, and turns green once it’s reached the desired temperature that you set. I really prefer this style of setting over a dial and blinking light that you see in many other models (such as the NuMe Lustrum that I reviewed back in 2015!). This is also the fastest heating curling wand I’ve ever used; it took less than a minute to heat up to 330°F!
I love the sleek look of this curling wand too. The matte black is very appealing! I know this is the least important thing to look for in a curling wand, but I find the look of it will match people’s styles more, especially if you’re a hair stylist. I highly recommend picking up the NuMe Octowand! Yes it’s pricey ($199 USD), but you’re getting 8 curling wands for this price. If you were to buy separate curling wands in each size, you’d be spending way over $500, as many of them go between $80-120 USD each!
