These days, there are a lot of choices when it comes to curling tools and each one has its own specialty.

Depending on the curl size you desire, you need to consider what barrel to get. Curling irons’ width measures from 3/8 inches to 2 inches, and comes up with different kinds of curls. If you want tight curls, get the smaller width but if you want it looser, a larger barrel is best.

Smaller barrels are a match for thin, flat hair. Your hair will hold its style even if the tight curls start to lose shape in the course of the day. Large barrels on flat, thin hair will produce loose curls that won’t last long. Larger barrels are more suitable for thick hair that retains shape and holds looser curls better.

You should stick to the three hundred to three hundred forty degree range when doing your own styling. Stay at the one hundred seventy-five degree range if you have fine, thin hair.

Know the material the curling iron is made of. If you curl your hair often, ceramic and Tourmaline curling irons are the way to go. Titanium barrels are best suited for unruly hair.
