which curling iron ?

Hi,

 There seem to be so many different size curling irons out there - how do I know what size to get (1 inch , 3/4 inch etc) ? Can anyone recommend a good one?

 Thanks!

Re: which curling iron ?

The size of the curling iron realllyyyy depends on what width of curl you want! I have a 3/4 and I have pretty tight curls.

I'm a big fan of tapered curling irons. They're easier to use and give a more natural curl. I'm really into the Hot Tools ones.

i have invested in the Sultra  Bombshell 1" curling iron; i have long hair and normally when i curled my hair with other irons, curls would dissaper by the end of the day! With this iron my curls last all day long, and i can do many different styles. Yes iron gets pretty hot and you have to be really careful, but once you figure out how to use it - Its amazing!!

I use the karmin g3 clipless curling iron, it's pretty good, the 1" is better. I can make pretty long lasting curls and waves. Smiley Very Happy it's great. if you are interested u can check it out at safrons. com Smiley Very Happy

Re: which curling iron ?

I'm a Hairstylist so i hope i can help! If it's shoulder legnth you don't want anything bigger than and inch, it might not even be a curl, I would reccomend you use a flat iron to make curls, I don't know if you have ever tried it but thats how i prefer to curl hair. If you want a curling iron i would suggest one thats one inch. Whether you use one thats $200 or $20 it doesn't matter the brand, My favorite brand though is Babyliss, It's not available at Sephora but Ulta carries it i think. 

 

A good tip to remember is to use a heat protectant. Sephora has alot of great ones. I recommend Alterna's Bamboo Kendi Oil before you use the curler, and Use a Working hairspray before you curl as well. I recommend Redken Fashion works working spray, just spray alittle on each section before you curl. And after you can use the same one or a stronger hold.

My hair is about shoulder length and is fine and dry.  I would like a somewhat medium size curl. And nothing that will fall flat. Thanks for your advice!

Re: which curling iron ?

Alot depends on the size curl you want and how long your hair is, Could you give a good description of your hair legnth and what kind of curl you want.
