Nume Curl Jam Review

I splurged and got myself a birthday present this year, but hey, you gotta treat yourself sometimes! I bought myself a Nume Curl Jam - which is a kit with a straightener and a curling wand with 3 barrels.

Currently I use a straightener to curl my hair, and it works well, however, as you may know I'm thinking of cutting my hair shorter (see here). I find that straightener just don't work as well for curls on short hair. I have heard such great things about Nume from various vloggers and I've been wanting to get my hands on one to put to the test. So I did!

I got mine on sale during Memorial Day Weekend and I would definitely suggest waiting for a promotion (they have them all the time). This retails for $199.00, but I got and $89.00 promotions; definitely worth the wait!

Now for the curls!

For this look I used the medium sized barrel to get more wavy curls. I curled the hair in 1 inch sections alternating toward and away from my face.  I finished with hairspray and waited for everything to cool down. 

Then I ran my fingers through it and kind of picked apart the curls to make sure they weren't too structured. 

And holy shit! These curls last forever, and I love it! My first test was curling my hair at night after I'd washed it. I slept on the curls that night and woke up with them looking lovely and then slept on them again and still had beautiful waves on my second-day hair!

I didn't really believe all the hype I'd heard - it's the skeptic in me - but these tools have really lived up to it. I'm so happy with my purchase and can't wait to try more styles.

  1. Curls with a straightener? I like this look, romantic and full! Maybe you should keep this amazing long hair. Btw, Zoya is doing their free nail polish deal again!

    1. Thanks for the info on Zoya! And I haven't quite decided if I'll cut my hair or not... we'll see!

  2. You are so beautiful! I love how the waves turned out. Definitely looks like you achieved Instagram hair (I mean that as a great compliment!)
