The curling iron is by no means a modern invention; people have been using them to add texture to their hair for eons (think ancient Greece, not caveman days). In fact Babylonian and Assyrian men crimped and curled their beards with curling irons (freaky fact, but yes, it's true). Of course these irons didn't look anything like the electrical curling irons we know and love today -- they didn’t debut until around 1959 thanks to BaByliss, and we're assuming women or men today don't use them to curl their beards (not that we're ones to judge), but it's interesting to know that the desire to have curly hair dates way back. So whether you're after tightly wound ringlets or tousled, beachy waves, this curl guide will help master the curling iron once and for all.
