    This is such a great post Amanda! I wish I had the guts to pull off the long bob like Alexa Chung. I lover her short curls.

    This is so great! I sometimes forget how important it is to tailor your tools to your style. Lucky for me, I usually stick with similar lengths, but I did buy a smaller barrel iron when I chopped a decent amount off over summer. Great post!

    great, thank you so much for the tips, I think I have the right curling iron for my hair, I use the Karmin g3 clipless curling iron and it has worked pretty good, makes beautiful long lasting curls and it’s easy to use. :D

    I only have a karmin g3 styling iron but it’s 1 inch wide and it curls too, so I think I can curl with it! Thanks for the info btw!

    Hair curling is not so easy and for good curl you have to use proper method and follow proper instruction.

    I LOVE THIS! My hair is always straight, limp, and boring… I wish I would’ve seen this first because I think I tried 1,000 things before I finally found something that worked for me. I’m still going to try this though! If you’re interested in trying out what worked for me you can get the instructions here and tell me what you think! xoxo, WearToStandOut

    I have medium length hair and I am considering buying the 1 1/4 inch curling iron, but would it have to be the curling iron with a barrel or could it be a wand and still get the same results? Thank you!

    I have shoulder length hair and it’s thick so it can be a real pain to curl. To be honest I don’t like clipped curling irons, they get tangled and leave dents, or I’m not using them properly! I have a curling wand and I totally recommend a wand over an iron, no matter your hair length. I have the karmin clipless, amazing tool to have at home.

    Never before heard of a steam shower enclosure
    until finally I came upon this website, so glad I did so actually want one right now and
    money permitting will be owning one soon

    Curly hair provides timeless appeal and thus curling irons are a must have for almost everyone. Before purchasing curling iron you should remember that short hair would need small iron and simultaneously longer hair would need larger iron. When it comes to barrel, the beauticians generally advice for the metal based ones as metal barrels are suitable with any form of hair & is most economical as well. Get more tips at :

    Thank you for this explanation is so good. !! A ceramic tourmaline one is best, they’re faster and the curls last longer. Some curlers have straight barrels and others have tapered, the best are tapered because you can get different kinds of curls and not just the same old cookie-cutter ones everyone has. I would recommend the karmin clipless curling iron, it comes with the glove, bag and heat mat. Has a long warranty and curls like a dreeeeaaaam! Love mine :)

I’ve been trying to figure out what size curling iron to get for my hair for AGES now, I just recently cut my hair to shoulder length and I want to get wavy Alexa Chung style hair, so this helped so much! Thanks for sharing :)) xx

    You can use also hair straightener for curl your hair and curling iron is only one way using its only curl your hair but not straightening…and hair straightener is used for both straight hair and curl hair.

    The best curling wand I have used is the Karmin. It has a tapered barrel so it creates any size curl or waves i want.
