Curling Iron Frequently Asked Questions FAQ

Perfect curly hairstyle? it is achievable, I gathered the reader’s questions and answers you can get the most out of your curling iron.

Which curling iron is best for short hair?

Don’t pick the curling iron with a large size, pick the one with a small barrel. The most suitable? The barrel is no more than 1 inch.
My recommendations: BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium Conicurl Iron (1/2 to 3/4 inch Barrel), Hot Tools 1 Inch Curling Iron, FHI Heat Platform Tourmaline Ceramic Professional 3/4 Inch Curling Iron and Gold N’ Hot 3/8 Inch Professional 24K Spring Curling Iron. The differences between those curling irons are the quality, price and material made of and design.

Which curling iron is best for long hair?

For long hair, I rather go for 1-1/4 inch curling iron. The reason? It saves time and your hair is less exposed to high heat as if you have to pass many times with a small barrel.

What is the best curling iron for beach waves?

It is easy to get beachy waves with  1-1/2″ barrel curling irons, check out my recommendations 

Do I need to apply a heat protectant before curling my hair?

Applying heat protectant for a curling iron is a must anytime you use a hot styling tool 

Curling iron sizes

It is up to your hair and curling hairstyle you want to achieve to decide the sizes of curling irons:

3/8, 5/8, 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1 1/4, 1 1/2, and 2 inches.

What materials is the curling iron made of and which one should I pick?

Curling irons can be made of ceramic, titanium, chrome, gold, Tourmaline, Teflon and their combination. It depends on your budget and your hair types to pick, often high-quality curling irons are made of gold, titanium and ceramic and tourmaline.

Can I use hairspray before styling with a curling iron?

Absolutely not, the reason? Hairspray and heat are not friends, the combination will make your hair dry out. It’s fine if you’ve done curling, apply some hairspray.

I recently started curling my hair, should I use old curling irons?

Probably not, if a hair tool has passed its prime, there are two possible scenarios, it is set correctly or not getting hot enough. Neither is good for styling, you have to go over each section – waste time and damage hair.
