I recently chopped off my hair. My new look grazes my collarbones and is about four inches shorter than my former lengthy locks, so styling it has definitely taken some getting used to. I used to be able to hop out of bed, spritz on some dry shampoo, and be happy with my tousled texture 鈥 but this fresh cut isn鈥檛 as flexible or forgiving when it comes to聽less-is-more, lazy girl styles. Sigh.聽

This length needs a little extra love, and devoting just a few minutes to styling my strands is the difference between me looking disheveled and polished. That said, I refuse to spend more than聽10 minutes on my聽hairstyle each morning, which is why I鈥檓 obsessed AF with the new Drybar The Wrap Party Styling Wand ($165). It takes the fuss out of doing my hair, heats up insanely fast, and is聽practically foolproof 鈥 even for a medium-length newbie like me.

The second I fire this wand up, it鈥檚 just hot enough to start聽creating bends聽in the front sections of my hair because I like how loose and casual they turn out as the barrel is warming up. In about 30 seconds, the tool is at its peak temp (it heats up to 450 degrees),聽allowing me to add more lasting styles almost immediately.聽

Ten minutes is all I need to create some truly effortless beach waves 鈥 and I do mean effortless. The big barrel of the wand serves up perfectly imperfect strands that don鈥檛 look tightly curled or overly styled. The reverse-taper barrel means that the bottom of your waves will be thick and full, instead of coiled ringlets which are not ideal when you鈥檙e after that tousled vibe like I am. If you鈥檙e pressed for time, not a hair whiz,聽and like adding a touch of polish to your strands, this is your new must-have hair tool.聽
