We know what you guys are thinking- get your mind out of the gutter people!! When we talk size, we really are referring to…CURLING IRONS! We bet you’re thinking that all irons are the same yada yada, but in reality not all irons are created equal! There are different sizes, lengths and even temperature settings that we need to consider when choosing the perfect iron. Don’t fret! We are here to help you size up the competition.
￼ When it comes to curling your hair, the size of the iron you use is very important especially when it comes to your hair texture and density! If you have thinner hair and it doesn’t hold a style very well, a smaller iron is going to be your best friend. We recommend using a 3/4 inch or a one inch iron. Short haired girls should consider even a smaller barrel size…5/8’s anyone? Spunky short haired fashionistas such as Demi Lovato, Gina Rodriguez, Emma Watson and Sarah Hyland typically use a one inch iron or smaller to create the perfect waves for their tress length.
￼ If you have thicker or more coarse hair (and if it’s longer in length) we recommend using 1.5 inch iron or bigger if you’re going for effortless (ya right!) lived in waves. Celebs like Blake Lively, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid most likely go big or go home to create that effortless bounce. So you see, the size of your iron is very important!
￼ Let’s not forgot that quality is just as important. Remember that saying, “You get what you pay for.”? There’s so much truth behind that. Quality is everything when it comes to thermal irons. Let’s throw it way back-who remembers Hot Tools? Everyone has Hot Tools! If it’s not your momma, then your grandma has one! Seriously, such great quality and it’ll last you for years.
￼ Another hot pick is T3! T3 irons are amazing, come in a wide variety to choose from with interchangeable sizes/wands. We also need to mention, they are so stinkin’ cute and girly!
￼ Another great iron is the new BEACHWAVER. They made their big debut at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret fashion show, the iron was used on every Angel that hit the runway. BEACHWAVER irons look intimidating, but are complete opposite. It’s actually designed to make the process of curling hair easier and way more fun…the way it should be! Curling your hair shouldn’t be something that you dread after you’ve washed and dried it! It should be easy, especially now that you know what type of iron should be used for your unique hair type. Just like stepping out of the salon with your fresh blowout, your hair deserves to look just as amazing when your step out of your front door. Everyday should be a good hair day!
