Wand curls are a specific type of curls usually created with a curling wand instead of a curling iron.

If you are still confused about what curling wands look like and you have watched Disney Movies and seen some there, then they are just the same things. When you use a curling wand to curl your hair extensions you will achieve more of naturally wave-like curls. If you use a curling iron for the same, the curls will appear more-like tight curls.
