Choosing a styling tool to curl your hair is confusing.
Curling hair can be a challenge too, but by no means is it impossible, especially when you have the right tools at your side. If you think that using a curling iron is a bit of a challenge, then that simply means that you’ve never had the opportunity to use a rotating curling iron (or spinning, automatic curling iron the manufacturers try add a lot of term to their product name to fool the consumers)
With a rotating curling iron, achieving perfect curls will be the easiest task ever.
Rotating curling irons and regular curling irons look the same, but a closer look shows us that a rotating curling iron comes with an additional button to press. When this is pressed, the barrel begins to rotate, creating the magic that you’re looking forward to.
Not to be confused with automatic hair curlers like Chi Air Spin N Curl (or modern curler) that actually catch onto your hair and twist it around the barrel, rotating curlers require you to do a bit of the work as well.
When choosing a rotating curling iron, a few factors should be considered before you purchase, like: Brand – what are reputable brands that create products that you can trust?
Some names stand out in the hot tools market, like BabyLiss, Beachwaver, Conair, Remington, CHI, etc. The more trusted a brand is, the better your chances of finding a great product!
Features – what are the features of the rotating curling iron?
Keep in mind your hair and its needs. Temperature range, barrel size and barrel material are just three of the things to keep in mind.
Price – is this curling iron within my budget? Does the piece match the features offered?
A top-of-the-like rotating curling iron may be worth a hefty price, but a basic one might not be. Figure out what best suits your pocket.
Reviews – what are people saying about this curling iron? Other people’s opinions are priceless when it comes to buying a new product. If the general consensus is that a product is horrible, then you know that it isn’t worth purchasing!
You now have a general guide to help you when deciding on a rotating curling iron to suit you. For reference, let’s take a look at one of our favorites!
The Beachwaver S1 is an iron that will turn styling into a breeze for you. Complete with custom heaters on the 5.5” ceramic barrel, this curling iron has the ability to distribute heat evenly along the rod. Gorgeous waves and curls can be created in mere minutes without breaking a sweat, all with the push of a button.
There’s even a dual rotation setting that allows you to choose the direction in which the barrel rotates. Based on how you select each setting, you can create up to 3 different types of curls to match the look you’re going for. There’s also a setting to configure the speed of the rotation, the temperature and a device to lock the barrel in place.
If your hair is super thick or long, it may be wise to note that the clamp that holds the hair in place may be a bit small for you, or may not hold the hair as securely as you need it to. You may find that you have to use smaller sections, which can take way too much time (the 1.25 inch models are available – pick that one if you have that type of hair). However, most hair types should find no issue with this curling iron.
Even if you’ve never used a spinning curling iron before, this one is pretty much foolproof! You can’t go wrong. It’s easy to use, comfy to hold and gets the job done right.
What more could you ask for? Rotating curlings are the very thing you need to add to your haircare routine. They’ll make your life so much easier! You’ll wish you had tried them before.
