How to make your Curling Iron a Curling Wand!

So the other day I was looking into buying a curling wand.  I was looking and looking and thought "Gosh I do not want to spend fifty bucks on a new iron when I already have one".  I just couldn't justify it.  My curling iron works just fine, but I don't like to curl my hair with the clamp anymore.  It makes a different curl when you don't use the clamp.  It's more of a beachy wave than a fancy curl.  So I thought, "hm mm I bet I could just make my own"!  So I did!  
Here is how I did it!

This is how I started, with just a regular Conair curling iron.
 I took this screw driver
I unscrewed both sides of the curling iron like this
Once I unscrewed both the screws. I took the whole clamp off the top. It pretty much just popped right off.  This spring is what was underneath the clamp.
I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but the spring is also screwed into the iron.  I also had to unscrew this from the iron.

And Viola I have my very own curling wand WITHOUT spending any money!!

I am so glad I tried this out!  It was super easy and I didn't have to spend any money!  If you are like me and like the curling wand better and don't want to spend money on a new one, I would try this out!!  It took me maybe 2 minutes to do everything!  

Hope you guys enjoyed!!
