Lock, Stock and One Curling Iron Barrel

Although a few lucky gals have been blessed with gorgeous natural waves, most of us rely on at least a few modern tools to achieve that red carpet-ready look. You're not fooling us, Megan Fox – we know those cascading curls were created with a curling iron! The question is, which size barrel is ideal for the curls you want?

Curling irons come in a variety of sizes, from the tiny ¼-inch to the massive 2-inch – and everything in between.

Do you want tight ringlets and well-defined curls falling around your shoulders? Stick to a smaller barrel; your curls that stay put all night long (with a little help from our friend hairspray). If you're looking for loose waves that scream old-Hollywood glamour, go for the larger iron. Run your fingers through the finished curls to loosen them up, then finish with plenty of hairspray so your curls won't go flat as the evening wears on.

Deciding on a curling iron size is a matter of personal taste, so you really can't go wrong. So decide what type of curls you like, choose your curling iron and have fun with it!
