Hey guys! Brad Graham from BradGrahamTV.com once again and today, we’re going to be talking about this. This is the hot rods. You’ve seen curling irons, you’ve seen flat irons; these are hot rods. What’s cool about the hot rods? It’s a rod that gets hot, which pretty much make sense.
They come in many different sizes just like people. There is this size and then this one look like this. This small, medium and who needs a man basically as well these things are but here’s what’s great about them. It’s much the same temperature sensing devices inside of this just like your flat irons. They go zero to 4000 degrees -- no, its like 410 degrees, 10 to 15 seconds and the whole rod gets hot but you don’t have like the old days, the curling iron, the tang or those professional ones where you’re doing all these funky chicken stuff. This is a rod.
So, what you do is -- where did my girl go? Are you gone? Show them how to use this. I’ve got one of my girls to show you because every time I do it, I burn myself because these things are really hot. So, here we go. Michelle’s got a piece of hair. You just grab a section of that hair. Can you see me? Am I still in the frame? Okay, we’re good. And just wrap it around and leave it. And like I said, watch the fingers too because it gets hot. And count to four, one to four and look! Can you see that? Can you remove the stick? Oh, that was lovely. Let’s try it again. Perhaps we’ll try it a second time, hold on a second. Let’s have that again. So, grab a section, wrap it around nice and tight. I told you to use a smaller one. Watch your finger, count to four and there it is. Put some nice little curly loop in the hair. It’s a hot rod.
If you get into the smaller ones, you can take this whole section of hair there and you can really wind it around. That’s what I do. I wind it like a snake and then I drop it out and I’ll get a good, nice curl. This is the thicker one. This is the bigger one she’s playing with. It’s a little bit different. You got to get your hands in there but you’re used to a typical curling iron and they don’t see the bite of this but there you go. Show them. That’s how it goes.
Give me another one of those. If you’re going to turn, go slightly here in the camera. So, how about that? Now, just a nice little section. Michelle is going to show you how this one goes. Gently wrap it around. Can you see that in there? And they got this at the end. This is good because this doesn’t get hot and then you drop it out and look at that, isn’t that nice? That’s a nice curl. You know why they didn’t curl the first time; they didn’t have the lovely thing on.
So, here we have it one more for the road, hot rods. This one is by—not a company for coming out with these hot rods. They’re a new thing. They’re really fun. What’s nice about it is it has a detachable chord. So, if you want a different size, you just pop this out and then it goes right over this one. It’s like their off/on.
Color coded too, dial ups and it’s got a little digital. I don’t know if you could see that. A little bit of screen on that one but look how it goes. Can you see that? The little number is going up. Maybe yes. So, up and down, 410 degrees, that’s hot. That will work. Anyway they go but this is nice.
This one here, if you’ve got your little proms. I mean it seems like everybody is graduating nowadays. They graduate from Grade 1, right? Everybody’s got -- the old days, it was high school. Now, they have limos here when they get out of kindergartens; it’s crazy. So, this one here, once it’s gotten heated up, she’s just putting in some nice curls, great for those events.
And what else? It’s a big piece of hot steel. So, the client tends to really sit still. So, if you’ve got one of those that move around, they’re talking, they’re on the cell phone, break out the hot rods, you get the job done.
