If you follow me on Instagram (@celline08) you’ll notice that I am no good in styling my own hair. I can’t even curl it properly and I know it has nothing to do with my tools because I’ve got lots of them from different brands but nothing seems to work for me. I don’t know how to practice curling my hair without drying it so I kinda gave up on it.. until recently, that is. I was invited to the Babyliss Miracurl Pro event a few months ago and it gave me a new perspective on the phrase “hassle-free hairstyle”. Nothing can be easier than this when it comes to curling your hair. Noob-friendly. I approve! 😀
BaByliss PRO prove they are once again at the forefront of innovation and technology for professional hairdressing with this ground-breaking new product: Perfect Curl. Ideal for use on mid-length and longer hair, this amazing, high performance appliance creates beautiful, long-lasting curls, quickly and effortlessly. It has to be seen to be believed!
Babyliss Miracurl PRO is an amazing, very innovative new tool – no wonder a lot of knock-offs are being sold online! I first saw this product from Youtube Beauty Guru and I thought nothing of it after the demo because the curls were just plain limp and messy. So when I got to try it myself during the event, I was blown away by how easy it is to use and how beautiful the curls were. That’s when I knew that the product she used on her video was fake.

How To Stop A Fake Babyliss Miracurl Pro: The biggest red flag is the price. The real thing is expensive (being sold for Php9,995) but the knock-offs that are sold for Php2000-3000. Next is the color; the authentic Babyliss Miracurl PRO is only available in black. If you get the chance to inspect it, check the material. The real one is heavier, of course, but suppose you can’t really compare, try tapping on the chamber. If it sounds shallow (like cheap plastic) then there’s a big chance that it’s fake. It should have 3 prongs as well. The labels should be carved on the plastic – not on a sticker. Knock-offs are nothing but a waste of money. Might as well save up for the original one, IMHO. 

During the event, they demonstrated using both the real Babyliss Miracurl PRO and the fake one. I don’t think I need to tell you how the results greatly varied, right? The curls from the fake one looked like it was just twirled between the fingers! It was tangled, messy and UGLY. While the curls from the authentic Babyliss Miracurl PRO is shiny, luscious, bouncy and it actually holds still for hours even without hairspray.

It is very easy to use and it needs very minimal effort. I could finish my hair – without any help – in 10 minutes tops! The procedures are very basic that even a noob like me can do it. With 3 different heat settings and 3 different timer settings, there are lots of combinations to choose from and with less direct heat, it is kinder to hair too. Perfect Curl also boasts a curl direction control; offering the option of uniform curls either curling towards the face or away from the face or auto curls where the direction alternates with every section. It has never been simpler or faster to create perfect curls, enabling the stylist to effortlessly achieve a variety of styles and trend-led looks.
A hair styling contest was held during the latter part of the event. Babyliss holds this event annually and the winner, along with other Babyliss tools as prizes, gets to compete in Hong Kong courtesy of the Babyliss. This is actually a big deal especially to up and coming hair stylists that aims to be known all around Asia. It was such an honor to be one of the judges for the said competition. I admit, I know very little when it comes to hairstyling but it doesn’t take a professional to appreciate its beauty.
The contestants had a head-start before taking the stage but once on the stage, they were given a few minutes to finish their looks. We were going around taking pictures, checking out the different ways to use Babyliss tools and just basically trying to pick up as much hairstyling tips as we could.
The models strut their stuff up and down the run way. Their creative hair pieces were complemented with the beautifully done makeup and gowns. They were just so pretty. My personal favorite was the one in the red high-low cocktail dress. She was gorgeous but when it comes to judging only the hair creation, the one in the long white gown was my bet.
Of course, she won. My bet won both the “Bloggers’ Choice Award” and the Grand Prize. According to the stylist, he tried to mirror the beauty of the sea and its waves. How he made the model’s hair stand like that amazed me. It totally blew everyone else’s out of the water. I can only imagine how intricate the design was and how much effort was put in to it. It was a much-deserved win. Congratulations and I look forward to seeing next year’s contest as well. 🙂
