Several Ways to Get Different Curls in Your Hair

Many women use their curling iron the exact same way every time and then get frustrated and bored with the curls they achieve in their hair. Wrapping different amounts of hair around the barrel will have different effects on the curl you achieve with your hair iron. For more pronounced curls in your hair wrap smaller amounts of hair around the curling iron at one time so that the heat can affect each strand fully. For looser curls that are softer to the touch than wrap more hair around the curling iron barrel to create the looser more relaxed look.

Of course the only way to change the actual size of the curl you will get is by using a larger or smaller barrel on your curling iron. A 1 inch curling iron is a good overall iron to use for the average curl. But if you want smaller tighter curls then you will need to use a curling with a much smaller barrel than 1 inch. While if you want really large curls then you of course will need to use a large barrel.
