A91491612b8005a82791 top 4 curling irons

All curling irons are not created equal, and sometimes deciphering which tool is the best to achieve your desired style can be difficult. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here, a guide to the top tools for the job.

If you want loose, big curls…reach for a large-barrel curling iron (1-2 inches). Ideal for medium to long hair lengths, this iron will smooth hair as it adds volume and creates soft, voluminous curls.

Want natural-looking beach waves? Grab a spiral curling iron. Using 1-inch sections, place hair flat in between each section of the rod and hold.

For more effortless-looking, "It-Girl" waves…..get your hands on a non-tapered curling wand. Wrap 1-inch sections around the wand, leaving the ends out. This keeps your ends straight and gives your waves that modern look. (Bonus: It saves your ends from any heat styling!) If you're looking for an easier way to make waves, try a wave iron, like this one!

When going for retro, Old Hollywood bombshell curls, use a Marcel curling iron. This oldie-but-goodie iron has been around since 1875, and is preferred by professionals for its long-lasting results. The difference between this iron and regular curling irons is that it is not spring-loaded, and stylists must use an opening-and-closing “clicking” method to hold the hair in place.
