Hair styles come and go but one thing that hasn’t changed over the years is that women want great looking hair. Today’s heated hair appliances make it easier to style hair than in the past. Depending on your preferred style, choose a tool that's best suited to you. Curling irons have been around for quite a while. They have clasps that hold the hair while curling. They're great for creating polished curls that are perfect for work, date nights and special occasions. Curling wands don’t have clasps. They produce natural-looking waves for a more relaxed, everyday look.
Once you’ve decided whether a curling iron or curling wand is right for you, you need to choose the size of the barrel. That mainly depends on the length of your hair. Barrel sizes generally range from half an inch to an inch and a half. The barrels are also made of different materials such as metal or ceramic to provide even and consistent heat. Both hair curling irons and curling wands include important safety features such as automatic shutoff and variable temperature selection.
