8 Best Curling Irons -- and the 3 Worst
Don't fry your hair trying to get perfect spirals, instead find the right tool for you
There are a few things you should look for in a curling iron: One, does it get hot enough to adequately curl your hair? Two, is it the right size barrel for the curls you want to create (smaller barrels mean tighter curls, looser barrels mean bigger curls)? Three, is it easy to hold and use? And four, is it a high enough quality iron to last you a long time?
Obviously, it's difficult to know which irons will meet these criteria. Luckily, TotalBeauty.com readers have tried them all and reported back to us on which ones lived up to their expectations and which ones fell flat -- along with their hair. Read on to see which curling iron brand dominates TotalBeauty.com readers' bathroom counters. (Other brands should listen up!)
