Those with naturally curly hair have been rejoicing, it seems having loose wavy curls is making a fashion comeback. So that means it is time to lay down those hair straightening irons (though not too far that look is still hot too), and pick up your hair curling irons. I know everyone tells you that you can create gorgeous wavy curls in your hair with that flat iron, but for truly beautiful curl without taking the time to master the flat iron, you will have much better luck with professional quality curling irons.

By going with the curling iron that creates the curl size you want you will have much more control over the final size of the curl you end up with. This will also translate into more uniform curls since the curling iron is one size. With the flat iron the curl amount depends on the amount you twist the iron as you go down your hair. Also using a curling iron for waves is much easier since you only need to wrap the hair around the barrel and wait a few seconds as opposed to the twisting and sliding motion that the flat iron requires. Curling irons are simple to use and every woman should have one or two sizes around at any time to get some style into their hair.
