Getting the Right Curling Iron

July 20, 2008 by  

Whenever you curl your hair you surely have a idea of how large of a curl or how much of a wave you want to add to your do. Certain curling iron sizes are better than others for certain sizes so you will need the one that is the best for the job you have in mind.

For big waves it is best to use a curling iron with a 2 inch barrel. This will create large loose curls, which appear more as waves in the hair when wrapped loosely around the iron.

If you use a three-quarters to a 1 inch curling iron than you will end up with larger more bouncy curls. To get the best big curls use spritz or mousse on your hair than wrap small amounts around the curling iron for about five seconds. Always make sure you allow the hair a chance to cool on its own before you touch at so the curl has a chance to set in.

For tight small curls use a smaller curling iron such as a three-eights inch barrel and just like with the big curls apply the hair iron about 5 seconds and use spritz to hold the curls in place.
