Different sizes of curling irons can help you do drastically different hairstyles. My personal favorite size is a 1 1/4-inch barrel because you can curl larger sections of hair at once and go through your whole head fairly quickly. It creates loose, casual waves that give you a put-together look without trying too hard. And the curls stay a little bit longer than if you used an even bigger size like a 2-inch curling iron. If you've never used a curling iron this size before or just need some tips on curling in general, How to Use a Curling Iron by Amanda Holstein will help!
