The Enrapture Encode Totem Styler is a heated hair appliance that features a unique, three-part wand. When my hair finally started to grow past my shoulders (a combination of completely removing hairdryers and straighteners from my routine, using Lee Stafford's hair treatment and a very short course of caffeine shampoo), I began experimenting with curling my hair a little more.
As I've previously mentioned, this Totem Styler has completely stolen my heart and pushed my Babyliss curling wand out of the boat. This styler has a nice little contraption where you can freely adjust the heat on different parts of the wand, giving you looser or tighter curls where you want them. None of that 'sleeping on your hair' or spritzing insane amounts of hairspray through your mane, no siree!
For the record, I would recommend this to people with medium to long hair. Any shorter than shoulder length and I think you'd have a real trouble with the barrel which is 25mm thick. Surprisingly, I also don't mind the flipper/clip at the base of the wand: I used to hate these, but I've finally worked out how to use them (hair n00b...) and find it helps to keep each section of curls consistent and defined.
Below are my favourite Totem combinations, which I regularly switch between on a weekly basis. I try to include the combination in my outfit posts where applicable, but here you can see my hair in more detail!
1-2-3, loose waves with a defined base curl
1-2-1, soft bouncy, princess curls
1-3-2, a natural wave with a defined centre curl
