XANDRA Shares the Go-to Hair Tool for Her Signature Mermaid Waves

The Miami-based DJ loves a quick and simple hair routine.


XANDRA is spilling hair secrets, and we’re paying attention. The Miami-based DJ took to TikTok earlier this week to walk her 1.2 million followers through her everyday crimped hair tutorial, which results in the 22-year-old’s enviable mermaid waves.

“No matter how many hair styles I try, this is always my fave,” XANDRA admitted at the beginning of her clip. She wore a green oozma kappa crewneck in a nod to Pixar’s Monsters University.

“... I’ve also tried every single crimper I think out there alive and this is my favorite by far,” she added of the Paul Mitchell styling tool she relies on. “Because it’s smaller, you can just get more crimps in there.”

The fast-heating iron is ideal for all hair types and in addition to XANDRA’s glowing review, Amazon buyers note that the tool is lightweight and easy to use.

“wow your hair looks amazing i have to try it out!!” someone wrote in the comments.

“this hair style is such a slayyy,” another person added.

“u slay everything,” one fan agreed.

“your hair is literally perfect i’m so jealous,” one fan noted, to which XANDRA replied, “I’m gonna be doing more hair tutorials soon so stay tuned.”

We can’t wait to see what’s next!
