Kiss Instawave Automatic Curling Iron Review

Have you heard of the new Kiss Instawave Automatic Curling Iron? Well, with it being something new and my daughter had been telling me she wanted one similar, I decided to request the review.

Kiss Instawave Automatic Curling Iron


  • Fully automatic, tangle-free curler
  • Innovative design lets you curl from any position using either hand
  • Curl Dial makes it simple to switch between left and right curl directions
  • Ceramic Ionic Technology protects hair for healthy, shiny results
  • Two heat settings with maximum temperature of 420° F
  • Auto shutoff after 90 minutes for added safety
  • Patent Pending

The Kiss Instawave resembles a traditional curling iron mixed with a plastic curl dial (like a beading tool thing from the ’90s). Warning: it also gets really hot once it’s heated… so proceed with caution (I was nervous about burning my scalp at first).

When you plug in the cord, it may give off a high-pitched humming noise — it’s just letting you know it’s revving up, I guess.  The company says that it’s normal.  There are two heat settings: high and low — the InstaWave turns red win it’s ready to be used.

How it’s suppose to work is you choose a one or two inch section of hair to curl. Then, hold the barrel parallel to it, up towards the roots. (I found this positioning, to be rather awkward and felt like it was going to burn me.) There’s a button you hold down, (to curl to the left or right direction). The little prongs start swirling around in circles and SUCKING your hair around the dial thingy. Once all the hair is in place on the rod, you let it sit for a few seconds, and slide it out to reveal your curl. Repeat to curl the rest of your hair.

Despite its undeniably neat qualities, though, I unfortunately have to say that if you have really fine hair or short hair,  the InstaWave is not for you. I got this for my daughter to review, she has short hair and it would not work on her.  I tried to use it twice when she brought it to me and it would not grab my hair and twist it in the thingy to curl my hair.

But I know other bloggers who have used the Kiss Instawave and have had it curl their hair.  I’m not sure if I was using it wrong, I tried my best to hold it like I was suppose to, so who knows.  I don’t like giving bad reviews, and I’m really not giving this item a bad review, I just couldn’t use it for my hair or my daughters.  She wants to try it again after her hair grows back and she has thicker hair than I do, so maybe it will eventually give her the curls she is looking for 🙂

You can purchase the Kiss InstaWave for $60 on Amazon, Target and Ultra.

  1. It took me 10 very frustrating days before I could finally get this to work for me. I watched at least a dozen videos of others curling their hair. Once I finally got the hang of it, I was happy but kind of stressed out too. Just sitting here thinking about how frustrated I was makes me cringe. I was doing everything the directions told me to. I even tried it on my oldest daughters hair and nothing. It’s a great product but it’s not for everyone. As someone who loves having curly hair, I loved how it turned out.
